This was a really exciting shoot for me as it was the first time I have collaborated not only with a hair and make up artist (in the fabulous ladies, Sarah and Bec, from Sublime Mobile Hair and Make Up, who seriously outdid themselves with this one! Ah-Mazing!), but also with a real life stylist! Kate, from Style is Eternal was able to give the shoot a very cohesive look, creating a distinct colour palette and feel that could be then passed on to all others involved. She also sourced the most divine head wear from the amazing Shara Gillahan Millinery for our French Diva to wear atop her heightened mass of powdered curls. I also got to work with the stunning Melissa Buchanan, whom I met almost a year ago at the most amazing day at the Echuca Races. Her hairstyle that day was what inspired this whole idea! Mel bought the idea of a modern Marie to life in front of my lens. She asked how did I want her to portray the doomed French Queen with a modern twist. My reply; like a Kardashian….and the rest was magic! Of course no story about this excessive woman would be complete without cakes; and lots of them! This is where the brilliant Tracy from Tracy’s cakes came in to play, creating three gorgeous tiered masterpieces, and countless cupcakes to cater to Marie’s over indulgences! Finally the look all came together by being shot on location in the suitably appropriate bridal suite and grounds of the Adelphi Apartments. I can not thank you all enough for such a wonderful day, and I hope you all enjoy viewing the end results.

Let’s just quietly imagine we are turning the pages of a French Vogue in a gorgeous little salon in Paris whilst sipping French champagne, and viewing this as a glorious editorial spread…or not; but it’s more fun that way!;)

Thanks Katrina. :)

Mads and Ben

A gorgeous Friday in Swan Hill was the setting for Mads’ and Ben’s big day. They knew what they wanted in their photos though and I did everything I could to make them happen…..including traipsing through two wheat fields, breaking the speed limit, climbing towers and climbing the railings and leaning way out and clambering through a hot, dry (very likely snake filled) quarry to get the shot…..although mind you, Mads did most of this too….in stilettos and possibly the worlds heaviest wedding dress, so who am I to complain!!!;)I think it was all completely worth it though as lots of laughs were had along the way and we all discovered how great Ben is at posing! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

Jayde and Cam

Phew, a hot one at the start of Spring for Jayde and Cam’s big day, which was set so beautifully in a paddock on Cam’s farm. After the groom arrived fashionably late (;)) the wedding went off without a hitch, although little Sophie would have liked someone to join in her a game of chasey I’m sure! Such a cutie you have there Jayde and Cam!! Such a fun afternoon was then had on the farm and on the grounds of the Emerald Bank Woolshed taking bridal party snaps! Paddle boats rock….although are quite tricky to paddle in long dresses! Thanks for a fantastic day, and I wish you the most amazing future together as a family. PS Reminder to all brides:  take epi pen to ceremony when allergic to bees and wedding being held in grassy paddock…that was a close one Jayde!

Sallie and Rob’s Anniversary

Sally contacted me with an idea, to celebrate her 30th wedding anniversary with her husband Rob with a photoshoot…but a photoshoot with a difference. Sallie was planning on wearing her wedding dress from 30 years before, and it still fit beautifully and looked gorgeous! Thank you for coming to me with such a wonderful idea and for sharing a part of your celebration with me.
