About Us

THE CAVANAGH'S

Thanks for stopping by to check out our work

Cavanagh Photography was founded in 2008 by husband and wife team Adam & Kim. During that time we have had the privilege of capturing well over 400 weddings all over Australia and in some stunning international locations.

 

Adam is the primary photographer and photo editor while Kim runs business side of things, incuding client correspondence, accounting etc.

We have two little girls, Zoe & Phoebe and a dog named Beau :)

We are both originally from Sydney and that is where we started out with Cavanagh Photography. Then a few years ago we relocated an hour or so north to the Central Coast NSW. The change has agreed with us, we are loving the beautiful surroundings and laid back lifestyle of the Central Coast.

One of the great things about the move is that we are now closer to one of our favourite wedding (and wine) regions, the Hunter Valley. As well as lots of lovely Central Coast and Newcastle wedding venues, while still being able to head to Sydney for the occasional wedding.

 

Adam & Kim

Adam

I love photography, art, music & theatre... and my gorgeous little family and puppy ;)

I come from an Arts background with a lot of my college and uni days performing & studying theatre. Since then, photography has become my artistic outlet.

Quick Facts

- was born in Sydney Australia, but has lived in Melbourne and Perth.

– is eurasian (Singapore/Irish) but has been mistaken for American Indian, Mexican, Eskimo, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino and many other small asian nations.

- Cavanagh is an Irish name and our logo is based around the Cavanagh Family Crest.

- studied musical theatre at WAAPA (Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts).

- used to be a headbanger in high school, with the long hair and clothes to match. Now listens to pretty much everything, from Rock to Pop.

Kim

Kim handles all bookings & accounts and all client correspondence. So when you enquire with us, you will be talking and emailing Kim.

Quick Facts

- has visited 25 countries, but with 195 countries in the world… there are still a lot to visit.

Beau is our little dog. He is a Spoodle (Cocker Spaniel & Poodle mix).
