Hey, I’m Rhys! One half of Hungry Hearts Co.

My guess is, you’ll be quick to pick me as quite the cruisey character.

My life is best lived in the early morning surf, adventuring with my Fiance, Loz, having an arvo beer with our mates and sharing Vegemite toast with our half groodle, mostly bear, Mosely.

I like spending time losing balls on the golf course, being a die hard Sharkies supporter has got me no-where in life and I’ve never said no to a whisky.

Bit of a basic bitch, I know. 😂

I’ve had the ol’ photo-taker in my palms for most of my adult life, snapping away at random people in their happy place. Originally in the ocean, then during my travels, now couples in love. It's the best job in the world.

People say Photographers have an ‘eye for detail’, but my Wedding Photography is based on emotion - intimate and honest. It’s feelings that drive our actions, so i’m looking for a smile creeping up someone’s face, a tear dripping from someone’s eye or a deep inhale before someone gets reckless on the dancefloor. I like to capture real things in real time.



My job, above all else is to tell an honest, visual story of your day. In my opinion, this is only achievable when people feel comfortable enough to be their true, quirky selves. I don't take myself too seriously and i’m not much for shooting posed pictures. Instead, I’ll ask you to say and do some silly things, we’ll have a laugh! It's all about catching the in-betweens. The real life action between two, the quiet as well as the outrageous, emotion in all the forms. (I guess you'd call this Candid.)

I think this form of photography is the art of reading people, just as much as it is about telling their story - and while you’re reading this, I hope you get a feel for if i’m the right artist to tell yours.

Building a connection with my couples is at the top of my priority list, my goal is to make you feel happy and confident in my presence. So, i’m a big fan of making pals before the big day. Catching up a few times means i’ll be a friendly and familiar face. (That idiot with the bad jokes.) Someone who can banter with your mates, befriend mum and dad and keep nanna out of mischief. You’ll know and trust that i’m on your team and it’ll make all the difference. We’ll be amigo’s, shake and bake, potato and gravy with a side of chips.

My only promise is this - when you’re tossing back chicken wings and flicking through your albums in 100 years, you’ll smile and say, geez that was fun.

Elope with us

Sometimes getting hitched is cooler/funner/more exciting and romantic when it’s intimate, with just a handful of your nearest and dearest, while on a mountain/in a field/skydiving - WE GET IT. 

Each relationship is unique, as will be the way a couple chooses to make their commitment. If a big wedding with all the bells and whistles doesn’t tickle your fancy, THAT’S TOPS - we’d like to offer you the ultimate adventure.

Picture this: you (it would be weird if you weren't there), your lover and a handful guests, perched on a mountain peak, a cliff edge, an open field, overlooking rolling green hills, beachside, on an island, wandering around a farm or in a cave - Getting married. Enjoy a completely personalised ceremony by Loz, with Rhys capturing every drop of your emotion. When the Big Show ends, dance off into the sunset for some portraits and then spend the rest of your time celebrating with your people. 

We want to do whatever it is that sings to your soul, wherever that song takes you. Easily! Fuss Free. And pretty friggen special.
