1. What do you love?
The outdoors! Spontaneous adventures with friends or randoms while traveling. Creating things, be it videos, delicious food, physical objects, art. Making stuff is simply the best 🙂 Going on two wheeled adventures (see ridewithalex.com )
2. Who are you?
An artist, a dreamer, an outdoor lover, a traveller, a mountain biker, a foodie, a camper, a diy’er, really tall, a pun lover, dog lover, a nerd, mostly introverted & extravert on demand (yeah complicated I know), a music lover, a brother, a son. I live for story. I want to try, to fail and learn from it, to give everything I have.
3. Why do you film weddings?
Because they are moments that matter. Not just pretty images, but real emotion, real stories. For me it is all about the people and the vulnerability that comes with the day. Day to day we wear a mask of who we want to tell the world we are, this is one of those moments in time where masks come off vulnerability doesn’t matter and the real you is on display. I am super honoured to be trusted to make films, stories that are a genuine, real, which bring people to tears and to laughter. I hope they are shared, passed down and perhaps when memories have faded they are joyously rediscovered again.
4. Can you film my wedding at
undisclosed secret location?
Hai! That’s japanese for yes! My passport is current, with pages ready for stamping 🙂 I’m based in Brisbane, Australia and often go wandering on interstate and overseas adventures.
5. How much?
$4400AUD for all-day wedding coverage local to Brisbane. Elopements and surprise weddings are priced on speaking with you about your plans.
6. Why all day coverage?
I’m there to document, the location itself (I love nature and the outdoors ), family, friends as well as you both. I’m not there to only capture the formalities and legalities of a wedding ceremony, depending what happens on the day/s your movie could be 10-20min.
7. Will my wedding feel like a movie set with tripods and cables and camera operators all over the place?
Nope. That’s the last thing I would want at my wedding, would be the day becoming a production. I’m all about the smallest footprint to capture the moment. You might notice from my work I shoot a lot of intimate outdoor diy weddings, this is what I love and what I would want for myself. There is just me, no crew or roadies, steadicams, slider things, most of the day I carry the same volume of gear as a photographer, one-two cameras (not those big ones you throw over your shoulder, DSLR’s with microphones) and a funky video tripod with one leg, ay matey, I’m often mistaken as the photographers assistant 🙂
I really value getting to ‘unprofessionally’ know my couples. We’ll share stories over a beverage or two and hopefully I’ll become a friend with a fancy camera at your wedding, who feels like another guest. Why do we hang out? Well to tell your story I need to listen. You can’t share a story without first listening. Jump onto the contact page and say hello. I also hope you get to know me and what I love as much as I do you <3
