Epic wedding photography for fun-loving, adventurous couples.

Hi there and thanks for stopping by and visiting my little site. My name is Adam Cavanagh and I am a Hunter Valley wedding photographer! I am currently based on the northern end of the Central Coast in New South Wales with my gorgeous family! Wife, two little girls and a dog. I do all of the photography, my wife Kim runs the business side of things and does all client correspondence. And our two little kids and dog just cause trouble. 

I specialise in epically awesome photography in a really relaxed, fun and candid style. Weddings and elopement are what we do the most of and what I absolutely love. And I love photographing couples who are relaxed, easy-going and up for a bit of fun and adventure.

Wedding Photographer Hunter Valley

Wedding photography has taken me all over the Hunter Valley. But as a Hunter Valley wedding photographer, I love to photograph weddings anywhere and everywhere in the Hunter Valley. But I am drawn more the more natural outdoor settings for my wedding photography. I love country weddings, mountain weddings, forest weddings and beach & coastal weddings. Anything outdoors and in nature. I love capturing couples in beautiful landscapes and locations. Photos that highlight the scenery and their unique relationship and personalities as well. And I love photographing these weddings and elopements in beautiful golden and soft light.

Here are a few of my favourites images taken at weddings and elopements recently.

Wedding Photographer Hunter Valley

Epic wedding photography for fun-loving, adventurous couples.

The Hunter Valley is such a beautiful region and there are just so many destinations and wedding on my bucket list of places I want to photograph. Every city and town in the Hunter Valley has dozens of locations that I would love to photograph weddings and elopements at. I am based near the Hunter Valley, and I do love to travel all over the Hunter Valley region for weddings and elopements as well. As a Hunter Valley wedding photographer, I have photographed weddings and elopements all over the Hunter Valley. And if you asked me what my favourite wedding location is, I would have to say that it is anywhere I haven’t photographed a wedding at yet. I love variety and new locations and sceneries. New destinations are exciting and really get your creative juices flowing. As a general rule for weddings that require me to travel, I try to arrive the day before the wedding to scout out the venue and locations. That way, on the day of the wedding or elopement, I am totally familiar with everything. But the Hunter Valley is my backyard and there is no travel fee and no travel involved.

Candid wedding photography that is meaningful, beautiful and unposed.

Approach to Hunter Valley Wedding & Elopement Photography

If you are looking for a Hunter Valley wedding photographer for your wedding it is important to choose a photographer whose style and approach to weddings and elopements matches yours. Photographers all have different shooting styles. Some will get beautiful photos by posing their couples in the perfect position. Others will set up multiple lights to create perfect light on the couple. And others will shoot more candidly to capture natural expressions and real personalities… and this is what I do.

My goal is to capture your real personalities and get real natural expressions from you. Therefore I don’t pose you at all. I specialise in getting natural, meaningful and fun images from couples. Most of my couples feel they are a bit awkward in photos. And this is great. I love awkward couples and couples that are a bit camera shy. I shoot the day really candidly so that you can just be yourselves. Once you relax and have fun, then you will get those natural expressions and moments.

I want your wedding or elopement to be a relaxed and amazingly fun day. So I don’t dictate the day, or interfere with anything and I don’t set up moments or get you to pretend to do anything. I want the photos to be totally authentic to you and of your day.

As a Hunter Valley wedding photographer, I have photographed hundreds of weddings all over the Hunter Valley. After ten years of photographing weddings, I have pretty much seen it all. I have shot weddings in every type of weather condition and in all types of lighting scenarios. Nothing stresses me out at weddings… except maybe driving in city traffic. My goal is to capture all the emotions of the day. The tears as you say your personal vows. The nervousness as you prepare to get married. The static joy after you are officially married. And the craziness of the party and celebration.

Elopement & Wedding Photography Hunter Valley

I offer professional Hunter Valley wedding & elopement photography because that is what I love to photograph. When I first started out on this crazy photography journey I photographed everything. Landscapes, buildings, objects, abstracts and just stuff. But I was never really happy with the photos. I would be photographing a beautiful landscape at sunset. The light and everything was perfect but I always thought something was missing. And the one thing I always thought was that the photo needed someone in it. A person or people. I love portraiture.

I love capturing peoples personalities in photos and also people in beautiful landscapes. I like to get up close and get facial expressions and I like to go far away and capture whole the scene and the landscape.

There is no such thing as the perfect wedding. And couples shouldn’t strive for a perfect wedding. There is absolute perfection in the imperfect. Don’t get caught up in the little things and don’t try to get every tiny little detail absolutely perfect, because you will surely be disappointed. Nothing ever goes 100% to plan on a wedding day. And that is fine. The only thing that matters is that you are in love and getting married. Embrace the weather, enjoy the entire day and celebrate.

Have a browse through my portfolio and check out some of some recent wedding and portrait photography that I have done. I always say, that if you can imagine yourselves in the photos on this website, then please get in contact. And if you are looking for a Hunter Valley wedding photographer and you like what you see, then please get in touch.
