Candid, fun, relaxed… and a bit epic… wedding photography by Darwin 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 in New South Wales, but I shoot weddings all over Australia and Darwin is definitely one of those destinations I would looooove to photograph. I have not photographed a wedding there yet, but it is on my bucket list for wedding destinations I would love to shoot.
My approach to photographing weddings is to document the day as naturally and candidly as possible. I don’t want to set up scenes or contriving moments. And I hate anything cheesy. Keep it real, natural and fun. I love shooting candidly as it allows you to relax and be yourselves and allows me to capture spontaneous moments throughout the day and night. Also, I believe that a happy, relaxed couple means beautiful photos
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 heaps of local photographers to choose from as well. I am a huge 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 definitely 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. Darwin is just a four and a half hour flight from Sydney. So it’s not that far really.
People often ask me what my favourite wedding venue or destination is. And the truth is, it is anywhere I have never photographed before. 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 just scout out the local area. And we can even catch up for a beer or a coffee. Shooting weddings this way 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 Darwin wedding photographer or photograph a wedding anywhere else in the region. Cheers!
