Hey, I’m Kevin, but all of my friends call me Kev.
Feel free to call me that too!
Most days you can find me with a coffee in hand working in my office which I created in a spare room in my home with a smile on my face. I don’t leave the house that often so you’ll find me in my pyjamas most of the time.
Im a husband of 5 years to my wife Lily and I’ve got a 2 year old daughter named Leah and a baby boy named Henry.
I am a wedding photographer, a foodie, a passionate home cook, eco warrior and green thumb managing a fruit and veggie patch in my backyard.
Im all about living life to its fullest, living sustainably, treading lightly on this world, having fun and spending time with close friends and family and giving back whenever I can.
When I’m not working you can catch me in the local park playing with my daughter, cooking up a storm, going to my favourite restaurant or still trying to pour the perfect coffee with my new coffee machine (it is not as easy as it looks).
One day my then girlfriend (now my wife) said to me "Maybe you should start a photography business". So I listened to her advice (always listen to your partner!) and Images by Kevin was born in 2012.
So here I am today, Five years later, I've documented over 100+ weddings and became an award winning photographer in NSW in 2016.
In 2016 I decided to give up my corporate desk job in the Travel Industry and make photography my entire life.
In 2017, I won a prestigious AIPP NSW Silver Distinction Award in the Wedding Category and runner up in 2018 ABIA NSW Wedding Industry Awards for Best Wedding Photographer.
In 2018, I became a dad (again) to a super cute little man named Henry. I also became an ambassador for Eco Ethical Weddings.
Sometimes I pinch myself how I got to where I am today, and I only have my wonderful clients to thank for trusting me with arguably their most significant milestone in their life to date.
My dad really loved taking photos of me as a child. I have hundreds of photos doing funny poses with my brothers and sisters. You know those ones back in the 80's with the hands on the hips. I was 8 years old. I absolutely hated it at the time!
One day he brought me to a wedding he photographed and I was in charge of swapping batteries and film and in return he would take us kids out to McDonalds. Talk about slave labour, but I actually really enjoyed it!
Fast forward a few years, I landed my first job as a travel consultant and was lucky enough to go on many overseas trips. Dad gave me one of his old Nikon F80 film camera to play with and I had an early fascination into the world of photography.
Dad saw that I really loved taking photos so he enrolled me into a photography course for my 21st birthday and surprised me with this gift which I could not thank him enough for. It really opened my eyes into this art and I was hooked from then on.
I decided to enter myself into some travel photography competitions and to my surprise I even won a few prizes along the way.
I love the world we live in and I want to ensure it's around for my kids to enjoy too.
I love living sustainably and treading lightly. Reducing waste and recycling.
Reducing clutter and growing my own fruits and veg in my backyard. Giving back to the world wherever I can.
I've been to over 25 countries in my lifetime and I still love to travel whenever I get the chance.
There's something about going to an unknown destination and learning about its culture, seeing how they live and of course, eating their food!
Here's where I went for my honeymoon, Cappadocia in Turkey and saw the world from a hot air balloon.
One thing people don't know about me is that I was very close to taking a chef's apprenticeship, but decided it wasn't for me.
I love my fine food and wine and can still work my way around a kitchen. My favourite dishes to make are handmade pasta, roasts, and my famous tiramisu.
I love nothing more than making my own latte with my expresso machine and freshly ground coffee.
I've been experimenting with different coffee roasters all over our city . So far I love ONA's Hitman.
I do make sure all the beans I buy are sustainably sourced and the growers are paid ethically.
One of my hidden talents which I don't utilise enough (or to my benefit) is I can actually hold a tune or two in front of a large audience and i'm not afraid to use it when absolutely necessary!
Here I am belting out a tune for my friend's wedding,
Ask nicely enough and I might even sing for you!
My wife Lily has always stuck by my side and even encouraged me to follow my passion. She's my worst critic and sometimes can be brutally honest about my work.
That's why I love her...
She's also a great photographer and artist and helps me with photo editing and album design, so she's the unofficial second team member behind the scenes!
