Photography is Matty's passion. He started taking photos at 16 years of age documenting his mates surfing and hanging out. He quickly moved from sports into travel, and eventually on to weddings.

assisting on weddings for many years now.

Andrew and Sarah live in the Blue Mountains just outside of Sydney where they love to hang out with their kids, and their Whippet – The Flash.
In their spare time (come to think of it there isn't a lot of spare time!)
they read, walk, listen to music and take lots and lots of photos.
As a professional photographer of over 15 years it has been very important to Sarah to constantly push her creative boundaries.
