Hello, I’m Jack Chauvel.
I am a Wedding Photographer from Sydney, Australia. I get a kick out of shooting weddings and documenting stories.
Welcome to my little slice of the world and my photographs.
About 7 years ago photography turned my world upside down (in a good way) and I have never looked back. I grew up in a house full of photographs and art, with parents who loved to travel and show me the world. Over the years my dad captured many moments of our family, whilst we adventured and grew together. Throughout my life and especially my teens, I did not know what I wanted to do. There were lots of things that I liked, but nothing that I loved. It took me a longer than expected to realise that maybe photography had a place in my life. Once I found it, I had to know everything about it. I get a little carried away like that.
My favourite thing about photography is the ability to create something from nothing. To be able to have a vision, capture a moment or capture light in a unique way. My love for photography started with shooting landscapes and the natural environment. It shifted from shooting digital to shooting film and focusing on the technical side of photography. Later on through chance, I found my love of shooting weddings. I now enjoy bringing the styles and techniques that I learn into the way I document weddings.
I have a hands on, no-fuss approach to my photography and have a good time whilst doing it. The process of meeting couples, getting to know them and documenting their wedding day in a story driven way is the best. Everyone has their own story and being able to communicate this story through photos and providing a memorable experience is why I love weddings.
I like to get to know my clients and often walk away as friends. At the end of the day I am documenting and communicating your story through photos. When you look back at your images years down the line I want you to relive the day through all of the little moments.
Personally however I just love photography. It has become so entwined with my every day life that even when I am not shooting, I am thinking about it. This passion is a personal drive of mine. I always want to keep learning, developing and creating. I cant think of anything else I would rather do.
Over the years I have been lucky enough to travel around the world to document these stories. Iceland (x2), Fiji, Hong Kong, Bali, England and Scotland have been some of the wonderful destinations I have photographed to date. Hopefully one day ill achieve my dream of documenting weddings in Croatia, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Greece, Japan, Sri Lanka and Ireland. I have a soft spot for country weddings, elopements and locations off the beaten track. Whilst I still call Australia home, I have been bitten by the travel bug. I am lucky to have amazing clients who love what I do and take me on this journey with them. When in Australia I regularly work between Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and wherever else you may want me to go around this beautiful country.
So whether it be a wedding on your parents farm, a cocktail style wedding overlooking Sydney Harbour or an intimate elopement in Iceland; I would love to be involved.
Get in touch and we can get share our stories together.
