Living vicariously through my gorgeous soon-to-bes and documenting families coming together for love, I thank my lucky stars for this ‘job’ I have... more like living the dream if you ask me! Being asked to photograph one of the biggest, most memorable days of a couple’s life is a HUGE honour and I’m ever so grateful.
From trying to keep it together as you walk down the aisle towards your lover, to dancing the night away with your favourite people, your wedding day will linger in your memory bank forever. Freezing time to capture your love story and cloud nine emotions, these are the wonderful moments your heart will cling on to when nostalgia calls.
With beautifully candid photography, let me transform your fleeting moments of bliss into an eternity of tangible memories. Yours to hold and to have, these are the photos you’ll share with your future little ones and grandkids when they ask about how you met.
You’ll have me by your side to celebrate and capture everything that matters most to you.
As we go about our busy lives, time has a knack of whizzing by, blurring your days together into one crazy-beautiful rollercoaster ride.
Pausing the ticking clock, even if it's just for a second, photography offers the luxury of permanence. Your memories may fade with time but your photos will always remain. Hand on heart, it’s truly an investment you’ll never regret.
I will document your life’s treasured milestones for moments of nostalgic reflection, whether it’s your wedding day or welcoming your newborn into the world.
Mum was the wedding coordinator, Dad was the MC and my Pa was a civil celebrant for 35 years. Some of my youngest memories included my little sister and I going to work with Mum every weekend, keeping ourselves entertained by exploring the huge building and beautiful gardens. We’d peek out the windows and watch the outdoor ceremonies.
A little older (and hopefully wiser), I studied photography at uni and was honoured to receive the award for Commercial Excellence at graduation. Around this time I was asked by a good friend to photograph her brother’s wedding. This was when I fell in love with the candid nature of wedding photography... and have never looked back! I’m so grateful to that couple for having faith in me all those years ago, as it was the start of me discovering and embracing my passion, which is just as strong today.
When I met the love of my life, I knew without a doubt that this was what I wanted to do forever. Fast forward a decade and here I am, working in the same industry as my family once did, capturing some of the happiest days of people’s lives.
To serve others through my photography is truly a huge honour and joy.
I’m married to my soulmate, Dylan, who popped the question the day before our first anniversary and though I was (very pleasantly) surprised at the time, we’ve now been inseparable for almost 10 years and married for 5 of those.
Together, we have a 2-year-old son called Noah and he’s the light of our lives. Always keeping us on our toes, he’s super cute and cheeky. Showing him the world and all its beauty, we go on daily adventures to the park and weekend road trips whenever we can!
I’m a sucker for ANY Nicholas Sparks film… even though they all have the same clichéd storyline (as Dylan keeps telling me).
While Dylan will always have my heart, I’m also super obsessed with John Mayer. Having met him in NYC and fangirling at all his Melbourne concerts, you’ll most likely catch me belting out one of his tunes on the way to a wedding.
Oh and thanks to my Italian roots, I’ll do anything for a decent pizza or pasta!
With a background in fashion photography, I am a documentary-style wedding photographer and my style has often been described as classic and beautifully candid. An encapsulation of timeless and romantic imagery, my goal is to capture your day unobtrusively and honestly, while you celebrate with your nearest and dearest.
My calm energy will help keep you relaxed throughout your wedding planning process and on the day itself. Having shot hundreds of weddings over the last 10 years and counting, I take great pride in being super organised and personally involved from our very first introduction to the final delivery of your gallery - whether you need help with finding the perfect florist or finessing your timeline, I’m only ever a phone call or email away!
Allowing every detail and fleeting moment to shine in a collection of natural, emotive photographs, it’s a little bit of memory-making magic combined with photographic expertise.
"From the bottom of our hearts, we cannot thank you enough! From day dot you were extremely friendly and bubbly. Having your photo taken isn't always the most natural feeling, but your kind hearted and warm nature made us feel like we could be ourselves and it shows in our amazing moments you captured!"
"I just wanted to thank you so so much for the most incredible photos from our wedding day. I would never have imagined for them to turn out so well. You have captured every moment so beautifully and they are just perfect!"
"We were both so extremely lucky that we found Josie to photograph our wedding. She was warm, approachable and knew exactly what we wanted. Josie was a dream to work with. For two awkward people like ourselves - she made it easy and fun and the photos were stunning. We could not be happier. Josie you were kind and caring and settled our nerves, thank you."
Just like you and your soulmate, your story is one of a kind. Let’s create memories that will have you reliving your happiest day all over again.
