I’m Luke Simon, and I’ve been an Adelaide Wedding photographer since 2004, and I still love it. (sounds like something you’d say at an AA meeting)
I’m driven by my love for my family first and foremost. I try very hard to find balance between my business and being the best father I can be to our two boys Henry and George. Sometimes I fail at this I’m sure, being self employed can make it hard to switch off at times! I also try hard to NOT be a complete pain in the ass to my beautiful wife Carrie, I fail at this sometimes also. I’ve been blessed beyond belief to have a family and I thank my lucky stars daily.
This love for my own family is also what motivates me every time I photograph a Wedding. For the love the couple have for each other, for the pride and love their parents have for them and their families is why I’m a Wedding Photographer. Some people ask me how I deal with all the bridezilla’s and whether I actually REALLY enjoy shooting weddings, and there’s no hesitation for me, I love the pace of the day, the emotions that run through it all and the immense pleasure that comes from delivering photographs that come with my heart and soul.
I have been very fortunate to travel with my work and have photographed destination weddings and elopements in countries including Sweden, Bali, Laos and Italy, South Africa, Fiji and Hawaii soon..and the Maldives on multiple occasions. So yes, happy to travel too.
We will feel like old friends if you love great food and sharing a good wine while digging your toes into the grass (or sand). If you take in the world with the glass half full and a good sense of humour, we’ll definitely have some fun together. I look forward to hearing more about your wedding plans and to working with you to capture it all.
The studio, located in a small row of shops in the leafy suburb of Colonel Light Gardens is just south of the CBD of Adelaide. We’ve transformed the space from a pretty drab old place into something I’m very proud of. You can see the before and afters here. 7 Salisbury Crescent has been my second home for over 4 years now and this is where I meet with my clients, do most of my editing, post production and album design, and run small group photography workshops. Meetings are by appointment, coffee isn’t half bad and I’d welcome an email or call if you’re keen for a visit.
