Portraits by Fridays Studio & Tessa Kit Zawadzki


My name is Chris Gurney, I’m from Perth, Western Australia, where I’m also currently based. I’ve been working as a photographer for over a decade, after my very first magazine submission resulted in a cover story. You can view my commercial and editorial portfolio here.

I’ve worked in many high pressure photographic situations, from weddings in 40 degree heat, to multi-day commercial shoots in the pouring rain, to swimming with a camera in some of the world’s biggest surf off the coast of my home state.

I work with a cool, calm, collected energy and approach each shoot with professionalism and a positive attitude. My experience in photography means I’ve worked within all types of unexpected scenarios, challenging weather conditions and unique client requests.

I aim to create a stunning selection of images that you will be able to look back on with enjoyment for decades to come. As they say, photographs are one of the only things from your wedding day that last forever. Looking forward to meeting you!


“I have worked with Chris on both weddings and style shoots. His knowledge of capturing the right light, boundless energy to get the right shots (even if it means skipping a delicious lunch), patience and infectious smile, makes it such a pleasure to work with him. Looking forward to many more in the future.” - Cathrin D’Entremont | Event Producer and Stylist | cdweddings.com.au

It made a perfect day even better.” - Robert and Kelly | married in Wembley, Western Australia.

We have no hesitation in recommending you as a wedding photographer to our family and friends.” - Wendy and John | married in Mosman Park, Western Australia.
