wedding photographer, dad, husband & outside-enjoyer
I'm Spencer - South Coast NSW Based Wedding Photographer.
"Love of mine" is the opening line to Death Cab For Cuties 'i will follow you into the dark'. We shared our first dance to this song and its always been a favourite.
As a youngster I grew up in South Australia and you’d generally find me on the beach, shredding (or so I thought at the time) on guitar or working at the local vineyards. When I was old enough, I set off on the hunt for a bit of adventure and found it up and down the east coast. Life took me over west where I met a beautiful lady with a questionable sense of humour, and after she endured some time travelling around Australia, we were married and off backpacking for a while before coming back to Australia and producing a couple of long haired scruffy beach kids and settling (after a brief but cold stint in the UK) on NSW’s South Coast. Now I just need to convince her we should get a dog and life will be complete.
Growing up and spending all my time split between the wild isolated coast and our family farm, I’ve always been drawn to the ways things look and how the way that a single image in my head could tell or inspire so much of a story. Since then I’ve been obsessed with the chase of translating that story in my head into photographs and I feel incredibly lucky that those stories I now get to tell are the beautiful celebrations of love between amazing people; something I’ve been doing full-time since 2017 and hope to be doing for a longtime into the future.
When I’m not behind the camera, you’ll find me on adventures with my beautiful little family on beaches with me trying to surf (badly), in the mountains, or just being somewhere outside.

Hey Spencer we both just wanted to take the time to thank you for photographing our wedding. It honestly just felt like having another friend there but you captured everything so perfectly and we've loved going back through the photos again and again already. Seriously - thanks Spencer for making these life long memories for us and it was a real pleasure hanging out.
We’ve just had a look and we LOVE them!! I’ve been crying again haha! Thank you so much for everything! We’ve been talking to the family and guests over the last few days and everyone has said how amazing you were.
The whole day was perfect, just how we wanted! We are so unbelievably glad that we booked you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We’ve just watched the whole thing with a glass of wine and laughed and cried! And then we got this email about Macsen having taken one of the photographs!
So so wonderful. Thank you so much. We couldn’t love them more and will look at them forever.
(Spencers note: Macsen is their 1 year old who helped me take some photos during the day!)
