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!

I focus on creating meaningful photos to give you the best memories of your day, whether that’s a wild confetti exit or capturing you sharing a quiet moment together. I'm always looking for how the light will play into my compositions to get the best out of our location.

My approach is calm & thoughtful with a strong focus on finding beautiful light to shoot in & creating compositions that make you look & feel incredible, while still leaving you completely lost ‘in the moment’. I’m an creative artist at heart & love shooting weddings on a mix of digital & old school 35mm & medium format film cameras dating back to the 1950’s for that pure hit of nostalgic goodness.

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 

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’. I'm on this adventure with you.

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?
