A few weeks back I attended the wedding of Victoria and Shaun. It was a really relaxed and enjoyable day with this awesome couple. They decided to do things a little different from the traditional norm and have a small low key ceremony with just their immediate family followed by a cocktail party with their friends and family held at “All Smiles” at the docklands in Melbourne.
The ceremony was held at a private home and was preformed by a celebrant. After the ceremony we captured all the family photos before heading down to the docklands for a few photos and then the reception.
It was a really fun reception. Everyone was so relaxed eating drinking and laughing. It was nice to be able to capture such awesome memories for Victoria and Shaun.
Here are just a few images from the day.
A few weeks back on a Sunday morning I headed over to St Kilda on my Vespa for the engagement session of Lauren and Sam. We met Lauren and Sam at a bridal expo recently and they contacted us for their engagement session.
The session was really fun and was nice to capture some images on the beach as it was at a beach (not St Kilda Beach) that Sam proposed to Lauren.
Thanks for a really enjoyable morning.
Here are just a few images from the session.
A few weeks ago I caught up with Wynne & Salv for their engagement session. It was a really fun session and went so fast. The light was so amazing in Carlton Gardens in Melbourne’s CBD. Mike & I adore the winter sun light and we love Carlton Garden’s. It’s really special to be able to capture images of couples with such amazing sunlight in such beautiful places.
It was so sweet hearing about your engagement guys and spend some time capturing a few images to remember this special time. Here are just a few images from their session.
Thanks for a great session! We will upload some more onto facebook shortly.
A fortnight ago I caught up with Wilson & Yuan for their engagement session. I met them at Melbourne’s Botanical Gardens. Wilson & Yuan are very much in love and for me that is a real pleasure to capture. I loved every minute of their session, it was fun, full or emotion and beautiful! The gardens are stunning this time of year in particular as the trees have lost their leaves and have beautiful winter colors. The light was perfect.
Thank you for the coffee after the session! Awesome to have had the opportunity to photograph you both and get to know you a little.
Here are just a few images from a perfect session with Wilson and Yuan. I will share some more on facebook shortly!
Just a couple of weeks back Mike and I headed up to Yamba NSW for the gorgeous wedding of Emma & Tony. It was such an enjoyable day and have been excited to shar it on the blog!
I started the day with Emma and the girls who prepared for the day at a holiday home in Yamba. Emma and the girls were so organised that they were playing a board game when I arrived! So chilled and relaxed! Upon arrive I captured a few images of the girls details before the girls got in to the dresses.
While I was with the girls Mike was capturing what was happening with the boys. The boys too were organised which made Mike’s job super easy!
The ceremony was held at St. James’ Catholic. Church Yamba. It was followed by family photos and the photoshot. We were so excited on the creative session to be presented with the most amazing rainbow!!
The reception was held at Yamba Shores Tavern. It was a really great weddign and loved capturing every moment of the special day.
Emma and Tony were such an awesome share the day with. There story is really cute. Emma and Tony grew up in the same town and knew of each other. Emma was working at with Tony’s mum and one night at the pub Emma she went up to Tony and told and it bossomed from there.
One of the aspects I love about my job is hearing about the proposal. This is the proposal from Emma’s prespective:
“it was my birthday and we were in London visiting Chris (Tony‘s brother). Tony said we should go for a walk and see Hyde park after breakfast but Chris wouldn’t come with us (I was a bit put off because it was my birthday and Chris didn’t want to come :-) We walked for about 45 minutes in light rain to a spot on the lake. Tony said I should take some photos because it was so nice- I got the camera out and took a few photos and went to turn around to see where Tony went and he was down on one knee- he said happy birthday first then asked me to marry him”.
Hyde park is so beautiful! We absoultely loved it when we visited last year!! Such a beautiful spot for a proposal. Thanks for sharing your special day with us. Here are just a few images from the day.

Just a couple of weeks ago I was in Coffs Harbour for the wedding of Erin and Josh. It was a gorgeous day and I had been excited to share their day with them since the engagement session. The Engagement session was a lot of fun so knew the wedding would be the same. Josh & Erin met at a mutal friends party and only a few months later got engaged. I think Josh’s presistence in asking Erin out certainly paid off. Such a cute love at first site story! Erin and Josh did most of the wedding planning together. The planning certainly paid off as it truely was a perfect day. They surrounded themselves by a great team of suppliers and were able to head the advice given by many of their friends “All the small things will work themeselves out- it’s about them getting married” A great piece of advice for other brides and grooms that are planning their wedding :-) I arrived at the boys who were getting ready at Sapphire Beach in a holiday house. I arrived a couple of hours before the ceremony to find the boys very organised!!- That makes our job as photographers very easy. I fell in love with the button holes. The florist did an amazign job :-) The time with Josh and the boys went very fast and it was soon time to head over to the girls who were preparing for the ceremony at Aanuka Beach Resort.
Erin’s room was bussling with activity and there was alot of excitement! I first captured the dress, flowers, shows and all the details. The dress, flowers and shoes were gorgeous!! There was so much to capture. It was soon time for Erin to put her dress and on and make all the final touches to her appearance. I know I say this all the time- but this has to be my favorite part of the day to photograph!!
Josh had arrange for Erin and her girls to arrive at the ceremony in Vintage cars!! The cars picked Erin her Dad, Paul and the girls up from Aanuka Beach resort. Was awesome to capture a funny moment when Paul completley missed the chair upon getting into the car! Very funny!
The ceremony was held at St Augustines Catholic Church in Coffs Harbour. The ceremony was followed buy family photos on the grounds of the church. We then headed to the Coffs Harbour Jetty for some photos. The final part of the photos were taken at Aanuka Beach Resort just before heading into the Reception.
The reception was held in the Breakers Room. A great room with a balcony overlook the grass with views of the ocean. Josh’s Mum Melissa made the most amazing dessert bar.
Such an awesome day and evening. Congratulations Josh and Erin. Thank you for letting me be part of your special day.

A little while ago Mike and I attended the gorgeous wedding of Charmanine and Darren. Im so sorry it’s taken a while to post your wedding.
I started the day with Charmaine while Mike started his day with Darren and the boys. It was such a relaxed and beautiful day. When I arrived at the Villa the girls were getting ready in. Charmaine and the girls were getting final touches done to their hair and makeup. The time before the wedding goes so fast. Once the shoes, dress, flowers and any other bits and pieces are captured it is time for the gorgeous bride to put their dress on.
Charmaine looks so beautiful! I was excited to capture these moments for her as it really is a special time getting ready before the ceremony.
The ceremony was held at Aanuka Beach resort in the chapel. The ceremony was short, sweet and reflected Charmaine and Darren’s personalities very well. After the ceremony we captured family photos outside the chapel and then headed around the resort for the formal photos of our couple and the bridal party.
The light was perfect on Diggers Beach to capture som really gorgeous images of Charmaine and Darren. The light made everything look so soft and pretty! I loved the choice of colours in the flowers. They were really beautiful.
The reception was held in the Breakers Room at Aanuka Beach resort. What I love about the breakers room is the balcony. Guests can get out in the fresh air to socialise and drink.
Thanks for an awesome day Charmaine and Darren. Thank you for sharing your special day with us and trusting us to document your memories.
