The wedding day of Erin and Cameron was without a doubt the wettest wedding day of I have ever worked. The rain seriously did not stop bucketing down ALL day….except when it was time for us to finish up and head in to the reception! They certainly didn’t let that ruin their day though and just took it for what was….their perfect day. It was also very fortunate that as their wedding was an Aussie themed day we had organised the beautiful Perricoota Woolshed for photos, so we were able to escape the weather in there. The poor little ute that Cameron and Erin used as their bridal car wasn’t so lucky though and didn’t handle the slushy driveway very well, which saw the groomsmen having to get out and push them out!! So even though conditions were tricky it was impossible not to capture the love and connection between these two. Thank you for choosing me to do that for you.
This time last year Jo from JRP Photography bought her kids around for a play and we all had milkshakes to drink. Toby and Reese looked so sweet sitting together sipping away…..and a little idea began to grow. We tossed around ideas and thoughts like we often do, but this one really seemed to be taking shape. We also knew that it couldn’t happen that year as we were both too busy so it was put on the back burner….until now. Jo’s clever husband whipped us up an amazing little stand (which we can now use for a wide variety of other gorgeous shoots) and we collected and created a few little things and our shoot was taking shape. The thing that played against us was the timing! We had planned for it to be in the quiet season but it was either too wet, too windy or kids were too sick! So now, here it is October again and smack in the middle of busy season but we did it…..and I am so glad we finally did!!!!
I often get to make the trip down south about once a year to work whilst visiting my family, however this year it wasn’t to be. I was very humbled that Jayde was so eager to have me photograph her family, that she bought them up to me! It worked in well though as she was able to visit her family in Boort! It was a fantastic afternoon, catching up with an old school friend and meeting his lovely family. Such great kids too, who had a great time playing with mine in the dirt hills out the back of our house! Thank you so much for having the faith in me to bring your family all this way Jayde 🙂
I was lucky enough to photograph Max’s parent’s wedding almost 3 years ago and was so excited when they decided to bring him over to have his 16 month photos taken. Like all little boys he liked to run and go exactly where the light was bright and glarey, but we still managed to have lots of fun and capture this little fellow in all his cuteness.
Oh dear, my blog posts really just seem to be getting bigger and bigger with each wedding…..but I can never choose, and with such a gorgeous couple, why should I?! I’m also loving the look my new 70 -200 lens is giving the images….how did I last this long with out it?! It was with great consideration to family and friends that Jessica and Nathan held their wedding on the Sunday after the AFL grand final so as to not clash with the big day! With a Swans win though I’m not sure all of the Victorians would have minded in the end! It was great day though in Axedale and I’m so lucky to have found a wonderful man willing to let us use his property for our shoot. Amazing location and the cleanest shearing shed I have ever seen! I was so lucky too that Jess was a natural in front of the camera and the chemistry and interaction between her and Nathan was just so obvious in camera! I wish you both the most wonderful like together.
