I love starting my mornings with cold water, bare feet and salty hair, followed by a long black or almond milk flat white depending on the mood. I’m a very calm and easy going person, except if there’s a spider/cockroach in the house. I spend a great deal of time trying not to kill my house plants, and I think I’m doing a pretty good job lately. I love cooking, and will pop out the champagne any time it looks like there’s something to celebrate (like making it to Wednesday). One of my favourite things about shooting weddings is getting the opportunity to steal an Arancini ball during canape hour (there are obvs lots of others but this is #1). No matter how old I get, the first thing I do when I get to my mum’s house is check the fridge. I’m passionate about capturing people exactly the way they are, in a candid and relaxed way.
Paris Hawken Weddings
I create a relaxed and natural atmosphere where you can just be yourself. An atmosphere free of stress, free of worry, where you can focus on each other and forget that I’m even there. I'll be more than just your photographer, and will celebrate your day and document it in my own signature style.
A corduroy, morning, shades of mustard and wine loving girl.
Oh hey there - I'm Paris. I’m based out of Margaret River, WA and I’m drawn to this place because it suits my laid back nature. I live by the ocean with my partner Tom and our very ancient golden retriever, Hugo. I’m up with the sun and in the sea every morning, and love having picnics with loads of cheese, hummus and red wine (name a better combo?).
I'm passionate about capturing people's legacies, their memories, the one thing that will stick around for years and not go out of fashion or fade away.
I want to capture you guys being yourselves amongst the people you love - all of the grins, toasts, misfits, kisses, grandmas, tears, groovers and every single little, and not so little moment that makes up your wedding day.
"Composed of singular, minimal moment, you get the sense from the photography of Margaret River based Paris Hawken, that every image is the first line of a story that reaches fruition in the heart. Inceptions of memories and captured beauty, her love for her art form is palpable, and if it takes one to know one, immortalising love in a frame is the epitome of what she does best."
"Her photography washes over you, subtly immersing you in her hypnotic aesthetic, as she draws inspiration from her natural surrounds to capture intimate portraits and wild landscapes with a signature softness that seeps from each frame. Expect dappled light and dancing shadows; each shot a blissful concoction of beautiful moments quietly captured."
