Who ever says there is no where to eat in Adelaide has surely been living under a rock for the past year or so, as Adelaide has been spoilt with the amount of amazing places that have opened recently. Top of that list surely has to be Madame Hanoi, at the Adelaide Casino. A mixture of Vietnamese & French cuisine, this little gem is sure to tick many boxes; from it's amazing savoury & sweet food, extensive range of beverages, vibrant & electric decor, to it's ever so cool atmosphere, Madame Hanoi is the perfect location for that morning coffee or dinner banquet. It was such a pleasure to be a part of the VIP Launch of what is destined to become another iconic restaurant in Adelaide.

Just some of my photos I have taken as a freelance photographer for News Corp Adelaide.

I had the pleasure to once again work with Ramvek on one of their shop fit-outs, and this time it was for Paul Smith. Spread across three 'sections', each layout was designed to showcase the different styles of accessories & clothing offered by Paul Smith. Beautiful, simple designs where used by Ramvek to create a sense of masculinity, class and quality that is the English menswear brand. (job: Paul Smith, Myer Centre Adelaide / client: Ramvek)
The sun may be shinning, but the wind certainly didn't want to play nice the day Jamaya & Jason got married, but that didn't stop them from enjoying every minute! Set amongst the greenery of Grange Gold Club, this gorgeous couple said 'I Do' in front of their closest family and friends, whilst their two adorable sons acted as page boys. Whilst the harrowing wind made it hard for anything to stay put (especially the girl's hair), it didn't stop us from capturing some gorgeous photos and having a laugh. Such an amazing day to be a part of, I wish Jamaya, Jason and their little ones all the best in their lives as a family. (Ceremony + Reception: Grange Golf Club).
They say opposites attract, and this couldn't have been more evident with Naomi & Michael. From the moment I first met them, I could tell that Naomi's carefree, crazy ways were the 'ying'' to Michael's organised, perfectionist 'yang' ways, but what was more evident was the love these two had for each other. With the beautiful spring sunshine beaming down on us, Peter Lehmann Winery served as there perfect playground for the wedding and photos, which was filled with an abundance of laughter. I don't need to wish Naomi & Michael good luck with their marriage, as I have a feeling it is already on their side! (ceremony & reception: Peter Lehmann Winery).
Being ask to be the photographer for a a couple's wedding is such a honour, but being ask to photograph a friend's wedding is on a whole other level. I have had the pleasure in knowing Lauren + Michael for quite some time now, as I went to high school with Michael and came to meet Lauren 8 years ago when they started dated, so needless to say it was about time these two got married! Everything about this wedding was as beautiful as the couple themselves- I have never met two people as nice, humble, fun and genuine as these two. Whilst we did have time against our side, I couldn't have asked for a better day with Lauren + Michael, and it was so lovely to see them finally say 'I do'. Lauren + Michael- I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness and I look forward to many more years of friendship. (ceremony: St Francis Xavier Cathedral / reception: Ballroom Function Centre)
Lovers of food and reality TV will remember Nic and Rocco from Channel 7's 'My Kitchen Rules' show, runner's up from the 2012 season. They boys have come a long way since the show, and I had the pleasure of photographing them for a few promotion images to be used around Australia.

A wedding is not only a day that a couple confirms their love and commitment to each other, but is also a celebration of life shared with family and friends. Dimity and David's day embodied all of the above. When I first met these two I knew that their day would be sincere, full of love and true to themselves, allowing their personalities to shine through, and when the day arrived I couldn't have been more right. From the moment I stepped foot into the boys apartment until the moment I left the reception, every minute of the day was perfect. There were tears of joy, moments of nervousness, screams of laughter but above all the feeling of love. It's fair to say I pushed Dimity and David to the brink when it came to photos (I like to keep on going and going and going), but I think the end results speak for themselves! Thank you Dimity, David and all those involved on the day for making my job not only fun, but so easy. I know that you will enjoy a long life together filled with love and happiness.
