Howdy,I'm Hank

I'm Hank; acclaimed wedding photographer, board game collector and self-proclaimed “imperfect vegan.” I have a passion for celebrating the joy of marriage through sustainable and ethical practices and have been photographing love stories since 2013.


When I'm not attending weddings (and busting out “The Hank Crank” on the dance floor), you can find me cooking scrambled tofu for friends or waiting in line to see the next Marvel movie.

"How did you get into wedding photography?"

People ask me this all the time. For a while, I would tell them a very bland version of the story. I'd go into detail about how I started working for another photography company ten years ago while I was still in high school. And how I left my hometown straight after I graduated to try and grow my business. Blah blah blah...

But that's not the whole story...

You see, my boss was also my church mentor. So at the same time that he was teaching me about light and composition, he was also showing me how to be a “good Christian business owner” by politely turning away any couples that didn’t adhere to our religious views on marriage. Eeeek!


To cut to the chase, from right at the start of my wedding career, I was taught how to discriminate against the LGBTQ+ community. My community.


It would take years of unlearning to realise how harmful this had been on my own journey to accept my own queerness…. But this introduction to wedding photography proved to be pivotal in shaping me and why I run my business today: to celebrate all humans in love.


When I photograph your wedding, I will work my butt off to make you feel safe and seen, for exactly who you are.

I don't do cookie-cutter.


Because you're not cookie-cutter.
