To know me, you need to know my wife, Kesh. The night we met, she was wearing Adidas three stripe track pants and Dunlop Volleys. I had seen Kesh before but never like this. She was beautiful, without trying. We spoke briefly and for the first time in my life, I asked for a girl’s phone number. I spent the next four weeks driving up and down the freeway to be with her. And when I wasn’t with Kesh, her voice whispered to me down the telephone and into the beginning of new days. Four weeks after we met, Kesh flew away to the far reaches of Canada.
Kesh would be on the other side of the world for twelve months and almost immediately, I knew I was going to marry her. Life without her didn’t feel like it should. Two months after Kesh sailed back into the country, we were engaged. One morning, before sunrise, we walked across the sand and stood in front of the ocean with Kesh’s Nan and Pa’s home as our backdrop. I asked the most important question of my life, she said yes and we celebrated with eggs benedict and hot chocolate.
Two months after that, we were married. In May 2012, our lives changed forever. Kesh gave birth to our baby boy, Roo. I love him more than I know how to tell you.
On a professional note, I’ve been shooting weddings for three and a half years. In that time, I’ve been lucky enough to shoot all over Australia. I’ve also shot weddings in England, Bali and America and had my work featured in Hello May, White Magazine and on blogs both here in Australia and in the USA.
I’m based on the coast, south of Sydney.
