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.
Mini-wedding/elopement package – $1500. 2 hours of wedding day coverage, 150+ high resolution images.

Please note: travel charges may apply to weddings outside the Newcastle region.
I have photographed weddings in Newcastle, the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, Hawks Nest, the Mid North Coast, the Central Coast, Sydney, Adelaide, Tasmania, Queensland, 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 for bigger weddings, I also offer albums, engagement sessions, additional hours of wedding photography, and 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, New Zealand (especially the South Island, as that’s where I got married, in Christchurch), 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!
