Jess and Shaun

If it was one thing she was sure on for her wedding day, it was her photography! Jess knew what she liked and that my style and love of country suited herself and Shaun perfectly. I must say, that after spending the day with them both, I certainly agree. Lots of laughs and a bride and groom who were willing to always go the extra mile for the shot! When an initial much wanted location fell through, we were able to secure an alternative, although it meant some climbing and stealthy manoeuvring to get to…..none of which phased our bride and groom in the slightest! I’m so glad that you were willing to make the climb Jess…..I hope the photos are what you dreamt they would be! Along with a bridal party who were just as much up for some fun, it really was a great day! Just remember to wash your hands…or no one may want to stand near you, and stay away from tractors boys!  ;)Many wishes for a wonderful future together for you both!

Ollie’s Cake Smash

I’ve seen these  done a lot but had never done one myself so when Emily messaged and asked for one for her little boy Ollie….I thought, “why not?!” It was lots of fun….but Ollie really wasn’t so interested in smashing the cake so much as just smearing it round a little and then having a good lie down!!

Mel, Jamie, Max and Bonnie

It felt like getting together with old friends on this shoot. I was lucky enough to photography Mel and Jamie on their wedding day several years ago, and then a couple of years ago again when Max was a little fellow and now I got to meet their latest gorgeous addition, Bonnie. Bonnie loved the camera too, and was always ready with a big cheeky, toothy grin for me! Thanks for a lovely catch up, it was great to see you all and to see what a great big brother Max is.

Georgia and Dean

Thank you so much Georgia and Dean for asking me to photograph your gorgeous wedding day at Mitchelton Wines….I had a wonderful day, and I know you both did too….. although I’m not so sure your poor feet would agree that it was so great, after I made you traipse all over to get the perfect photo location! You got your pay back though by making me take photos in the cellar….Oh Mitchelton Cellar, you do taunt this claustrophobic photographer! Georgia, you were the ultimate Hollywood glamour bride….and Dean, you are one very lucky boy! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!!

#modernmarie

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!;)

Try pressing play before you begin too. Song credits: Non Je Ne Regrette Rein, Edith Piaf.
