Name's Jackson. A people person and snapper with an evident passion for not just love, but Parmigianas and local music too. Since moving to the big smoke, I was adamant to balance life with passion. I was fortunate to give University a crack, before realising it wasn't for me. I was fortunate to pick up a retail job, before realising that wasn't for me either. Keeping a roof over my head meant making up my mind, and making up my mind meant taking a chance. The trust that loved ones see in what I create helps to pay that off. There is no guarantee that people who follow my work want to see any of it, but I make it anyway because as an independent creator I am motivated by the impulse to see my ideas to their realisation.
With photography, I'll stick around for eight hours for 3500, or ten for 4200. No matter what your audience, you'll be guaranteed 400 snaps, with plenty of extras coming your way. You can be assured that each and every selection is individually edited by yours truly, and returned to you both digitally and physically within a month. Read here for further insight.
With videography, the cost is the same. If you're after both photo and video, my best mate tags along with me! I’ve got a lil’ package for this, just sing out. We make four to six minute long highlight reels, which captures all them mems in a non-invasive manner. Not to worry, we've got a pretty fine music taste. You're gonna' want to read more here too.
I stepped into this thing around 2014, and damn have I got some stories. From getting stuck in the middle of a Greek Zorba dance, to admittedly being too invested in a Dads speech that I forgot to photograph him. Who knows what will happen next, that's the wild thing about this self-directed pursuit.
Whether it's early days or last minute, I wanna put faces to names before the big day. My attention is consistent to make sure no detail too small is neglected. Wherever the two of you reside, I'll happily meet you halfway or put time aside for a Skype or FaceTime call. Lets get this show on the road.
For the first eighteen years of my life, you'd find me on the border of New South Wales and Victoria. I now call Melbourne home, West Footscray to be exact. If you're planning on tying the knot elsewhere, don't think I'm afraid of flying now. Car, boat, plane? I'll see you there. Don't worry about the expenses that follow.
Look, there are a lot of us out there. I've partially got Mum to thank. She was a florist for over a decade before passing the business on. Each day after school I sat in the back of the shop waiting for Mum to close her doors, as well as doing the occasional bouquet deliveries with Dad. Due to this, I was exposed to all kinds of love from such a young age. Oh, and have you noticed all florists smell the same? Weird.
No two weddings are the same. Taking a commercial approach toward my work just wouldn't feel right, what you see here stems strictly from passion. I could never forget that this type of documentation is timeless. It's integral for me to capture the feelings that are evoked from your day, to ensure you feel the same way fourty, fifty, sixty years later upon reflecting.
I spent too long running from comparison and desensitisation to realise that I've only got a certain amount of time here, so my heart is in the front seat from the get go. Oh and this is my favourite album, honestly give it a listen.
