Candid, fun and modern wedding photography by Australian & internationally award-winning Alice Springs wedding photographer Adam Cavanagh.
Together with the help of my gorgeous wife Kim, who runs the day-to-day business and looks after all the correspondence and is the main contact in the lead up to the wedding… we are Cavanagh Photography.
We are currently based on the northern end of the Central Coast NSW and I shoot weddings all over Australia. Alice Springs is just a three-hour flight from Sydney. And it is definitely one of our most favourite wedding destinations that I love to photograph.
My philosophy and approach to photographing weddings is to document the day as naturally and candidly as possible. With lots of laughs and jokes. A happy couple makes for beautiful photos. We want the day to be real and honest without contriving moments. I love shooting candidly as it allows you to relax and be yourselves. This allows me to capture spontaneous moments throughout the day and night.
Alice Springs Photography
One of my favourite destinations to shoot weddings & elopements in is Alice Springs. This remote town in the Nothern Territory, halfway between Darwin & Adelaide, is simply gorgeous. Red dust, hot and remote. This Alice is simply epic, surrounded by the MacDonnell Ranges. It has so much potential for wedding photographers with it’s rugged, majestic landscape.
Alice Springs is an awesome location for your destination wedding, even if you have never been there before. It is located in the centre of Australia and has direct flights from most major cities. So if you have family all over Australia, this is a great location for everyone to get to. A great destination and adventure. After the wedding, you can honeymoon all around this beautiful region.
There is plenty of accommodation, ranging from luxury five-star resorts to camping grounds. And there are a number of premier wedding reception venues, including Earth Sanctuary, Alice Springs Telegraph Station, Ross River Resort and The Old Quarry. You can even have your wedding ceremony at one of Alice Springs most iconic site, Simpsons Gap.
The best time for a wedding in Alice Springs is between April and September. This is mainly due to the temperature. The weather is a bit cooler and there is little rainfall during this period. Summer temperatures can average around 35℃. October to March will be much, much hotter with more rainfall.
Why hire me? Aren’t there plenty of local photographers?
Yes, there are thousands and thousands of great photographers out there. And yes, there will probably be lots of local photographers to choose from as well. I’m a big fan of supporting the local community, small businesses and artists. So if you do find a local photographer, whose work you love and connect to, then you should hire them.
For me, I love to travel and to photograph weddings in new and different places. It is much more exciting artistically and I think it gives my photos a unique perspective. I try to incorporate the landscape, the atmosphere and vibe of the wedding.
I will generally arrive two days before the wedding to scout the wedding, find possible photos locations and familiarise myself with the ceremony and reception venues. And we can even catch up for a beer or a coffee. It means that I approach the day with fresh eyes, lots of excitement and very unique photos. My aim is to capture the story of the wedding day in the beauty and landscape of your location.
Are there travel costs involved?
My pricing will probably be higher than local photographers, as I do need to pay for flights, accommodation & car hire. But we try to make it really easy for you just give to a “travel fee” that will cover all of this. And if I am already in the area, then the extra cost will be reduced again. So it doesn’t hurt to reach out and start of a conversation.
The biggest thing I can offer you is my enthusiasm, my time & energy and vision… and if you have read this far, then please have a look through our portfolio. Get in contact with us if you connect with our images and can imagine yourselves in them. I would love to be your Alice Springs wedding photographer or photograph a wedding anywhere else in the region. Cheers!
