International Wedding Photographer Of The Year Awards - Category Finalist 2022/2023


Hey I'm Lachy

Raw & Thoughtful Photographer 

Dust & Salt is a digital & analog light chaser documenting rad couples in love. I capture whatever it is that makes your day special. These moments might happen quickly but your photos will last a lifetime!

It's like having another friend on your day getting amongst the action & making you look good haha. I’m there with you, not just shooting from the sidelines. I’ll make friends with your grandma, sink a beer with your crew & most importantly keep you relaxed & enjoying the day 

I'm an inclusive wedding vendor, so you’ll never have to ask ‘do you shoot LGBTQI+ weddings’ because I’ll 100% be there to celebrate your love with you

“Right from the start Lachy was exactly what we were looking for in our photographer. He is a genuinely lovely person with an awesome vibe & fit right into our day perfectly, all our guests loved him” - Katy & John 

While I love to capture the chaos & energetic side of weddings, my approach is actually quite calm & thoughtful with a strong focus on finding beautiful light to shoot in. Whether we're shooting film or digital I'm always looking for how the light will play into my compositions to get the best out of it

By now you can probably tell it’s more than just making images to me, it’s about the memories, connections & enjoying the whole experience together. I’ll help you every step of the way, from finding your dream team of vendors to crafting the perfect timeline for your day. You’ll have access to me throughout the whole process. I take a limited amount of weddings per year so you’ll never feel like ‘just another number’

So 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?
