* Top 10 Wedding Photographer of the year - Capture Magazine 2020 *


Hey I'm Lachy

I love chasing natural light in incredible locations, focusing on the true light & vibe of your day. I’m totally inspired by nature & passionate about creating people centred photographs of you & the ones you love.

I'm a lover of good music, whiskey & getting out exploring nature camping & hiking. 

With a background in landscape & adventure photography my images have an atmospheric feel that often highlights couples in locations with incredible natural light. While I love being in nature & creating wild images I also really love shooting in the city, being so close to Melbourne we have so many incredible city venues & it's always so exhilarating working with lines & form to find new compositions to shoot.  

There are so many unique ways of getting married, whether it's a traditional chapel wedding or an outdoor festival style celebration all the way to an intimate elopement in the mountains, it's all about creating a day that is special to you. 

I get totally invested in my couples, getting to know you & helping you create a day that represents you both.

I shoot on professional digital cameras at weddings & both digital & old school film/analog cameras at adventure sessions & pride myself on capturing incredible moments in any conditions. I'll even stand out in the rain or snow to capture the best images for you! I love the look of natural light photography & strive to keep my images looking clean & neutral but I'll also use flash & bounce some light when I need to & for those epic party shots at the end of the night.

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.
