Welcome to Firedust Photography.  I'm Mike, photographer, videographer, occasional mountain biker, husband and father of two crazy kids. I also love all things photography, particularly weddings!

Having been through the experience of getting married, I know what it's like to be in front of the camera and that sometimes, it's hard to be relaxed and natural when someone is pointing a camera at you.  My aim is to make you as comfortable as possible in front of the lens so that you'll love your photos and want to share them with everybody.

With so many wedding photographers out there it can be hard to choose just one of us.  I believe the best way is to check out as many portfolios as you can and narrow it down to a few whose style you really like. Some of my recent favourites are below - I hope you like them!

Hopefully I make it to your shortlist because then it's time for us to meet. This is so that we can get to know each other and I can get an idea of what you are looking to get out of your wedding photography.

Some of the extras I offer include albums, prints, couples sessions and videography. Most of the details can be found a bit further down but please hit me up below with any questions and I'll be sure to get back to you.

Firstly get in touch to make sure that I'm available on your wedding day - I hope so!  

If I am, I'd love to catch up and chat all things wedding photography. It's a great opportunity for both of us to talk about what you guys are looking to capture in your wedding photos as well as getting to know each other a bit.

It's a great opportunity talk about whether you would like me to photograph the day by myself or with my talented associate photographer.  This is totally up to you but with two photographers we are able to capture a whole lot more of your day.

On the day itself, I work hard to make sure you're as relaxed as possible for your photos and that those special moments are captured so you can remember and cherish them forever.

After your wedding, when you guys are hopefully relaxing on your honeymoon, I'll be busy sorting and editing all of your photos. Once I've finished the edit, I'll select 100 of the best images and have them professionally printed.  I'll also share all of your edited images with you, in your own private online gallery for you to share with family and friends.

If you have decided to go with an album, which hopefully you do as they are a beautiful keepsake, by now I will have started designing your draft and will have it to you shortly. 

You'll get all of your edited high resolution images on a USB, along with the 100 prints delivered in a custom print box as well as your online gallery anywhere from 4-6 weeks after your wedding. Woo hoo!

My prices start at $2300. If you would like the full pricing guide or just want a bit more information on how the whole process works please get in touch below.


I highly recommend investing in a wedding album. I know I am biased, but I think mine are some of the best around! If you're interested, I have sample albums that I will bring along when we first meet.

I have two sizes for you to choose from. The larger one is really great for showing off your wedding photos and is a lovely keepsake.  The smaller album is an excellent option either as a parents album to complement your large albumor for couples sessions.

Once I have finished editing your images, I'll design an album draft and send it to you so you can check it over and make any minor changes before I send it off for printing.

Both albums come with 30 pages and can be customised to included extra pages if you want more.  There's a range of great cover materials to choose from so you can make sure the book really reflects you and your day.  Album printing and delivery takes about 3 weeks from the time you approve the design draft

Albums start at $450.  If you want to include one in your package or just want a bit more information, let me know when you make an enquiry. Check out this page for a few more images of my albums.  



I offer couples sessions separately or as part of your wedding photography. As well as being a really nice thing to do, they can be particularly helpful if you think you might be a bit nervous or uncomfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day.  It's also a great way for us to get to know each other and get used to each other's styles.  

If you're interested, we can get a bit creative in these sessions and take some shots with thank-you cards in mind for after your wedding.

My couples' photography sessions run for 1hr at a location of your choice and are $550.  I offer a discount to couples that book this in conjunction with their wedding photography.

Once I've finished editing your images, which usually takes about a week, I'll provide them to you on a USB as well as creating a private online gallery for you to share with family and friends.

PRINCIPLE Photographer I videographer

Thanks for checking out Firedust Photography.  I have had the pleasure of photographing weddings since 2009 and have enjoyed every minute of it!  I feel it is a great privilege to be asked to photograph one of the most important moments of your life.  Over the years, I have met some amazing couples and look forward to meeting many more.

For me, photography is a passion.  I put everything I have into it and I'm constantly looking for inspiration and the next challenge. 

I'm based in Canberra and offer professional photography, videography and post production services.  I love to travel and enjoy photographing new and different locations.  Some of the places I have visited recently include Hawaii, Cyprus, the Solomon Islands, Sydney, Melbourne, the Sunshine Coast, the South Coast, the Southern Highlands as well as many of the amazing regions around Canberra.
