Hey I'm Lachy

Photographer - Nature addict - Music lover - Outdoor adventurer

I’ve been making images for a long time & I still get completely lost in the moment of capturing a photograph. I started out in Landscape photography over 10 years ago chasing epic scenes, astro & even wildlife. Over the years, my style has developed to be centred around two key elements, people & light. I get so much joy out of photographing real moments of laughter & creating beautiful imagery to keep forever.

I’m incredibly passionate about my work & I bring a lot of energy to every shoot. Whether we’re climbing a mountain to chase the sunset, enjoying time with your family after the ceremony or throwing back a few cocktails in the city, every wedding is unique & every one is special in its own way. My job is to capture whatever it is that makes your day special. This is why I meet with all my couples, to get to know each other a bit & form a connection so that you can feel comfortable with me & I'll know how best to capture your day. 

Dust & Salt is an inclusive wedding vendor, photographing rad couples in love from all backgrounds & communities. If you have the right team helping you plan & bringing good energy on the day I guarantee it’ll be bloody fun & we’ll capture some truly magic moments together.

The sole purpose of what I do & end goal is to have you ecstatic with your photographs & holding tight the memories & moments that surrounded you on the day. It’s more than just images to me, it’s about the memories, connections & enjoying the whole experience together. Here’s to reliving the happiness, to real moments & photographs that matter. Here’s to chasing your own style & celebrating in a perfectly unique way.

 I'm based on the Mornington Peninsula & Melbourne & I'm happy to travel for weddings & elopements. Hit me up if you’ve got any questions at all, or just want to say hi? info@dustandsalt.com.au
