Sydney Wedding Photographer

The Ralph Family | South Coast

One of the great things about being a wedding photographer is seeing two people form a bond that lasts a lifetime. Usually this happens long before the wedding itself, but on the day it becomes formal; the world, from then on, knows these two people as one. What’s even greater, however, is when I get to see those two people add another member to their crew, and become a family…

Take, for example, Alex and Tim here. Two good friends of ours who’s Coogee Beach wedding I photographed back in 2013, and who, a few months ago brought a beautiful baby boy into the world - Finn. During October, Alex, Tim (and Finn) invited Giuliana and I down the coast for the weekend, and the couple we once got to know before their wedding became the family we shared stories and laughs with over dinner and drinks, and had a long, early morning walk on the beach with the following day.

Naturally, the camera came with me. And what follows is the story of Finn Ralph’s first touch of the ocean…

New website! The Bow - Version 2.0

When I first started my website for The Bow back in October 2012 I had only one intention: to showcase a selection of my work for people to see. Like all websites, the first was a little rudimentary, haphazard and constantly needed improvement. As the work of shooting, editing and looking after clients took over, naturally, the site fell a little behind and was never as up-to-date as I would've liked it.

Which is why a few weeks back I decided to give it the overhaul it deserved, which is what you're looking at now. The Bow | Australian Wedding Photography, version 2.0. Welcome!

On this site you'll find a selection of new wedding photography work linked with a handful of old favourite galleries. All of them a relevant showcase of my style and my philosophy behind shooting weddings; I like to document, I like to witness, I like to capture natural, candid moments.

You'll also find a bunch of useful information, like Frequently Asked Questions, Vendor Recommendations, Testimonials and how you can follow The Bow on Facebook and Instagram on here, all useful if you're looking for a wedding photographer and are considering The Bow.

So thank you, so much, for stopping by. Please have a look around and don't hesitate to get in touch to find out if i'm available to shoot your wedding..i'd love nothing more than to be a part of it!
