I was born into photography.
I am a second-generation Qld photographer, having learnt 'old school' alongside my dad, a professional photographer back in the day!
I refined his techniques, and expanded my creativity, studying postgrad photography at JCU in Townsville and am now completing my Masters in journalism in memory of dad who passed in 2018 after a rough 2 year battle with cancer.
I have spent the last 25 years just shooting weddings and portraits in both our fantastic North Queensland and Bali for my zen photography studio.
Weddings and portraits are my favorite!
Having photographed over 1000 weddings I still get super excited portraying the human experience.
I have created a beautiful style of photography that combines elegance, style, photo journalism and classic wedding portraiture.
Based in Nth Qld with my family + kiddies and, with over 20 years professional experience running my Zen studio here, I am the photographer with the experience and local knowledge for your special day.
Whether it be Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Cairns, Hamilton Island, Bali, Singapore or anywhere in between I will shoot your wedding with the highest standards of excellence. When I am part of your wedding day I know that I am sharing one of your happiest days. This excitement coupled with the creative challenges is what sustains me as an artist!
cheers RoHaN RoY

Hi Rohan, we are so sorry for the delay in getting this email to you, but better delayed than never, so...
We received the photos, and love them! Thanks so much for looking after us so well, taking so many great shots & keeping them as casual as possible. We have actually nicknamed you the "photo ninja" as we never even realised most of the time you were there taking photos of us.
Please let us know if you like to have reviews posted on Facebook or any other social media site, as we would love to help spread the word for you?
Thank-you again, and we have been asked by both South Pacific Bridal &Reef House if they can possibly use some images from our wedding. Please confirm if you are ok with this if we send some through, and how you would like any photos credited.
Thanks again, and we know we will love looking back at the photos for the rest of our lives!
With love & thanks,
Mel & Simon the new Mr & Mrs ... :) x
"Hu Rohan, I just wanted to thank you sooooooooo much for our wedding photos. They are truly amazing and you have captured all the love and happiness that we felt on that day. I look over them and it takes me straight back to the day and puts a huge smile on my face.
And there is definitely no shortage of photos.... it's like watching a movie :)
I've seen my fair share of wedding photos and yours are simply stunning and the best I've ever seen. I will be recommending you highly to everyone I know
Thanks so much cat"
"Hi Rohan We received the photos on Tuesday and they were absolutely beautiful. I now see what you mean by lots photos. I also thought that there would only be one disk. What a surprise. They are wonderful and thank you very much for the great job. I can tell by the photos, how much you enjoyed being in those surroundings for photos. You are welcome to come to Ingham any time and take advantage of our beautiful scenery. Thank you again Alyce & Dean"
Thanks so much for the beautiful photos. You got such great shots! I can't wait to make our album! Thanks again, we really enjoyed meeting you!
"Wow that’s a lot of pics thanks so much. Ahhh so very sweet of you Rohan it truly means so much to us we had such fun and it was so easy working with you on the day. Have not stopped getting amazing feedback already on photos they are so stunning. Cheers!! Alexi from Sydney:-) "
Wow! That was quick! And they are absolutely amazing!!
Thank you so much for being such a huge part of our day and creating such perfect photos for us. We adore them. Thank you!Alicia and Jeff Sent from my iPhone "
Sorry for the delay in feedback but I haven't been able to stop looking at our wedding photo's! They are just beautiful and we're both extremely happy with them. So far everyone I've shown them to has been amazed at the result and has commented on what a great job you did.
"The day went so fast, as everyone said it would, but your photo's have helped us to experience the whole thing again.
I love the photos at the piano in the casino lobby and the ones at Anzac park with the kids on the swings and overlooking the marina, the ones across the road from scirocco's turned out great too. I can't pick any clear favourites because they're all so beautiful but there are a few that I've really been touched by. When Jonny and I were coming out of the church (to our favourite version of amazing grace) and the church CD started skipping we both looked at each other in horror for what would have been about 2 seconds, before the CD righted itself and continued playing; you caught that on film and it makes me laugh every time I see it.
Another one is at the church while we're all standing at the altar and my littlest niece, after being reprimanded for stepping up and down on the altar steps, puts her finger to her lips and with a stern look on her face tells her mum to Shhhh!
There are so many priceless moments that you managed not only to catch, but to represent so beautifully. Thanks again so much for your services, I will recommend you to everyone I know.
All the very best to you.
Alison & Jonathon. "

They are just beautiful, everyone who sees them just raves about them! Every photo is like 'wow the colours are amazing' & 'oh isn't that gorgeous, your photographer has done a great job you must be so happy!' I am so happy, I can't thank you enough, they are just the best! And it was so great to be able to flick through the printed photos on the plane to NZ for the honeymoon!

Hope you are well. We are back from our honeymoon and back to real life :)
We just wanted to say thank you so much for photographing our wedding and the beautiful images. It was very easy to work with you and you blended in so well! Our guests took some video footage which we just watched - it was at the ceremony, and you were right up the front taking photos but I didn't even remember you being there at the time!
Thank you for making it very easy for us on what was a very important day for us. God bless
Becky and Deon."
