Obviously I bring the Oakman to Oakman Photography. With a life long passion for photography it was a clear decision to create a business where I could live the dream of doing what I loved. I grew up in Tasmania until moving to Brisbane in 1991 where it is now very much home. I really enjoy the technical side to photography as well as the creative side. It never ceases to amaze me the emotions that stir inside me when going through my photos. As a brother of a groom said at one wedding ``It's really windy inside tonight, it's making my eyes water``. The greatest reward I take from my photography is getting to know my clients and really discover the essence of who they are. I enjoy the reception part of weddings for this reason. So much pride and love for the married couple is just so fantastic to witness. I am truly grateful to capture that connection between people and believe its a great honour to do so. It also comes with a great responsibility to ensure you capture their story for a lifetime.
