About Joel C

Hello! I’m Joel – an Adelaide wedding photographer – I love shooting weddings anywhere but especially in the Clare Valley and McLaren Vale. My photography is centered on capturing the true story of, and essence of the characters involved in wedding days. My three core values are – Natural images, authentic moments and personalised service.

This is me:

  I run my business based on values hammered into me since childhood:

From my Grandad (who played soccer professionally):

“If you’re going to do something, you may as well do it right.”

He was usually referring to polishing spoons while drying them up, but I’ve applied this to pretty much everything in life. Not least of all wedding photography – its not just my passion, its my obsession.

From my Mum:

“Integrity, Joel, integrity!”

To me integrity is a combination of honesty and consistency of character. I always strive for excellence in workmanship and customer service; and the fact that most of my customers come from referrals is testament to the satisfaction my couples have with my work and business ethic.

And from my Oma:

Plain old love.

It’s not a quote, but it was definitely drummed into me and my sisters by hugs and kind words and thoughts. She never doubted us. She always supported us. She truly just wanted us to be happy. Happy with ourselves. I apply this value to my family and my business. I am truly honoured to photograph each and every wedding day I do and I do my absolute best to play my part in making it as good as possible.

My philosophy:

Work hard and be nice.

It’s simple, but good photos flow. Because I get along well with my couples, they’re comfortable with me being there and natural moments are able to occur and real stories are captured. This is what I’m all about, recording the true love and relationships portrayed on the day – the celebration, the happiness and the drama. Most people like to have some posed photos; and I’m confident in any weather and lighting conditions of capturing compelling images.

I’d love to hear from you – tell me a bit about your wedding and feel free to ask questions. There’s more photos and testimonies up on my facebook page.


Steevie - and Shaz - Joel, you made the memories of our wedding day perfect. The photos were the most amazing quality – I’ve NEVER seen wedding photos as good as yours!
All of our guests have commented on not only the quality of your photography, but the fact that you were like a ghost… you never got in the way, of us OR the guests, and you were extremely polite, professional, and down to earth.
We put you in one or two pretty ‘risky’ situations, but you were happy to run with it and get the shots that we were after, while also suggesting awesome ideas (i.e. the fishing rods 🙂 The photos are so good, we still can’t decide which one to use for our thank you cards, and to go up on the wall – if we could put them all up we would!!
I will continue to recommend you to everyone!!
So anyone who is reading customer feedback before they commit – seriously, BOOK JOEL – I PROMISE you wont regret it!

Joel C - Thanks heaps Steevie! It’s really sweet of you to comment. You and Shaz were awesome to work with and I’m so glad you like the photos.
