Jackson Grant Weddings
Name’s Jackson. A people person and snapper with an evident passion for not just love, but Parmigianas and local music too. Since moving to the big smoke, I was eager to balance life with passion. I was fortunate to give University a crack before realising it wasn’t for me. I was fortunate to pick up a retail job, before realising that wasn’t for me either. Keeping a roof over my head meant making up my mind, and making up my mind meant taking a chance. The trust that loved ones see in what I create helps to pay that off. There is no guarantee that people who follow my work want to see any of it, but I make it anyway because as an independent creator I am motivated by the impulse to see my ideas to their realisation. You could say I’ve been around the block a few times, and I’ve noticed I’m drawn and more in touch with the couples who just seem like old mates. The best shenanigans are the days where you can tell a couple have done their homework with what truly resonates with them.
Look, I’ll get all your nitty grittys and styling snaps, but can we rewind and remember what this day is actually all about? It’s your partner at the sight of your tears, even your families after ten or so beers. I’m known for being that lanky guy in the corner who dresses like some cowboy tourist, who is here for a good time, not a long time.
No two weddings are the same. Taking a commercial approach toward my work just wouldn’t feel right, what you see here stems strictly from passion. I could never forget that this type of documentation is timeless. It’s integral for me to capture the feelings that are evoked from your day, to ensure you feel the same way forty, fifty, sixty years later upon reflecting. I spent too long running from comparison and desensitisation to realise that I’ve only got a certain amount of time here, so my heart is in the front seat from the get go.
