What more could you want than to shoot an awesome Aussie couple in Berlin?
Merren and Chris moved to Berlin for an 'adventure', which was supposed to last a year or two. Three+ years later, and with the addition of little Hayley to the fam, they seem to have settled into the Berlin life for good.
Merren and Chris wanted to show off their Berlin life to all their friends and family, and took guests on a tour of the city by through venue hops and walking routes. It was super thoughtful and full of unique and quirky touches (cue mini schnaps bottle favors).
There was a sweet pre-ceremony reveal at Museum Island, where bike tour guide Merren often takes visitors. Merren's colleages from Fat Tire bike tours even dropped some bikes down for a photo opp! We then headed to the absolutely stunning Clärchen’s Ballhaus Spiegelsaal (aka Hall of Mirrors), for a heartfelt ceremony, including ballad vows! A walk down to a local Späti for beer and pretzels followed, and then a short trip on the Ubahn took guests to the reception at Schönwetter beer garden.
Merren and Chris's happiness was overflowing and contagious, and made for the most amazing day! We are so lucky to have been a part of it!
Take note, grooms who think they can DIY at their wedding. If you're not prepared to custom build an altar and a tree-house for your big day, then you've got nothing on Joseph.
Liz and Joey's wedding was a perfect example of paying homage to young love, and creating a relaxed celebration centered around family, friends, and pets! Every wedding should have pets! Even if they break out of the fence frequently during inopportune times.
Set in the beautiful beach side suburb of Portalrlington where Liz and Joey grew up and got together as a couple, each part of their day was only ever a small walk or drive away, and the collection of classic Aussie muscle cars made each short trip a totally stylish blast! Perhaps one of the sweetest parts of the day though was returning to the street lamp that Liz and Joey got together underneath years before for a few quiet moments. So simple yet so significant. Love it!
My sincerest appreciations go out to Liz & Joey for having me capture such a wonderful, warm day in Australia. Every bride and groom could learn from these two about how to rock it in relaxed DIY style.

Well would you look at these two sweethearts.
Danika and Colin came all the way from their new home of Cambridge, England, in order to have a wonderfully unique DIY wedding in Danika's home city of Adelaide, A.K.A 'RAdelaide'.
From the get-go it was an 'all hands on deck' approach, with wedding members pitching in during the lead-up to their big day helping create decorations and even the wedding cake! This was all topped off with amazing sets of venues like Tin Cat Cafe, and among its surrounds the Rundle Street Art Project that gave us numerous unique backdrops for photos. SO much so, that we ended up shooting other couples and guests during some down time with various pieces.
Danika and Colin are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet and their love during the wedding was certainly contagious. They're two scientists with a flair for life and great, unique experiences, and their day was certainly an extension of that shared by everyone who attended. If you've never cried at a wedding before this was definitely the event that would crack the seal, again, and again.
It's not every day you get to shoot off to a wonderful city like Adelaide, Australia, for an awesome, hip engagement shoot. With the Adelaide Fringe Festival in full-swing, we were delighted to shoot in this amazing street art project called 'Little Rundele Street Art Project', which was only recently completed by this talented team.
As you can tell, Danika and Colin were clearly infatuated with each other in the lead up to their wedding day, and it made for an incredibly fun and lively shoot that was closed with a few cold beers!
What a way to finish up 2015.
Winnie and Elvin sure know how to celebrate their marriage, with not 1, but 3 weddings across 3 different countries. We had the honour of shooting their wedding in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where the always lovely Winnie grew up.
The blending of east and west, and tradition with modern opulence were perfect, with an emphasis on family and respect for Vietnamese culture permeating throughout the day.
Winnie & Elvin, we feel privileged for the experience, and especially enjoyed the numerous local cuisines you lavished upon us while we were in HCMC.
