I’m Xanthe, a wedding photographer based in Newcastle, NSW. I LOVE weddings, and I’d love to photograph yours!

I will photograph your wedding with a combination of a documentary approach and guided hilarity. As a wedding photographer, my approach is laid-back but evocative – I stay out of the way but I’m always handy for the shots you want the most. I’m unobtrusive and yet also ALWAYS THERE when you need me to take a photo of you with Great-Aunt Gertrude.

Most importantly, I love having fun with you and will help  you have a blast on your wedding day!

I aim to have you spend most of your time with your guests and your family, stealing moments here and there for photos of the two of you. The best part of the weddings I photograph is knowing that at the end of the day, I’ve helped you have an absolute blast with your nearest and dearest.

Areas Served

I have photographed weddings in Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, Hawks Nest, Bathurst, Port Macquarie, the Central Coast, Sydney, Adelaide, Tasmania, Queensland, New Zealand and the USA. I am available to travel wherever I can to photograph your wedding. With simple packages to suit short wedding or elopements, and longer coverage available for bigger weddings, I also offer albums and engagement sessions. Additional photographers can be booked if necessary.

I have some wedding photography locations I’d like to tick off my bucket list, so if you’re thinking of getting married in Western Australia, the Northern Territory, the ACT, or Bourke, please contact me – and Hawks Nest is one of my absolute favourite places to photograph weddings, as well as being my home town! Some additional charges do apply for weddings which involve travel, but I keep the charges as low as possible. Bucket List Weddings may be available at a slight discount!

“We have been photographed by the delightful Xanthe 3 times now - for our engagement, our wedding and then our baby -  just can't get enough of her energy and creativity! Capturing the moments that most would miss, we would recommend her to anyone wanting a shoot either in or outside the box! Fun, passionate and a good laugh - always a pleasure! - The Goldsmiths”

“We knew we'd struck gold as soon as Xanthe responded to our first email. Instead of the typically pre-written response, here was actual interest and enthusiasm from a real person. Something just clicked. It was the vibe of the thing... Xanthe was friendly and professional, and excited to shoot the kind of wedding photos we wanted. She brought a great energy to the day and made an instant connection with guests that allowed her to capture beautiful candid moments on the day. When we asked her to extend her booking on the spot so she could capture more of the reception, she accepted without hesitation. In fact, she hit it off so well with everyone that we invited her to stay for a dance after her booking ended, and she did! The photos are beautiful. They were edited and delivered quickly, the prints and album were high quality and elegantly packaged. Xanthe is the perfect mix of professional photographer and instant best friend. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and we couldn't recommend her more highly.”
