WHAT A BLAST!
From start to finish, Anna & Chris created one of the most memorable and fun weddings I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. They won me over even more by feeding me a deluxe meal, not once, but twice! Yep, it's that simple with me.
Having spent a few occasions getting to know Anna & Chris before their big day (engagement session here) I knew they'd just have an amazing vibe to their wedding - chilled, full of smiles, food, and oh so much love! The elegant and stylish simplicity of their attire, the jovial loving bounce they had for each other all day, and an absolutely blistering first dance! It truly was the perfect balance of organised and footloose fun. I cannot thank them enough for having me capture it all!
Much love and one big ol' blog post of joyful images,
Shout out to the fine venue folk at The Farm Cafe for being on point and keeping me well hydrated!
Anna and Chris - what gems!
It's not every week you get invited down to one of the most beautiful parts of Victoria to shoot, be greeted with some nice red vino, and watch a beautiful couple let go of their inhibitions like these two did.
As part of getting to know Anna and Chris before their wedding day next March we teed up a little evening shoot in Airey's Inlet along Australia's Great Ocean Road, and as soon as they stepped out of the car down the stairs to Eagle Rock Marine Sanctuary, Anna and Chris lit the place up. We stayed on at the beach until the sky turned a deep blue, and as a final bit of awesomeness they bravely jumped in for a post sunset swim in the very frosty water.
Massive shout out and thanks to Chris and Anna for being so awesome to work with and getting me back to Australia (along with a few other couples) next March for their big day. I can't wait!
Me - "Looks like it's going to be raining for our shoot. Are you up for a bit of getting wet?"
Sophie - "Oh yeah that's not a worry at all! We're from Ireland and England- we're not afraid of a few raindrops "
YES! YES! YES!
I had the pleasure of working with Sophie and Ritchie last week only days before they were set to venture off to the UK to be wed. For this shoot it quite literally rained, hailed and shined for us and these two embraced the elements with pure devotion. Running in and out of the scarce cover from the rain for various snaps was such a blast, and Sophie and Ritchie absolutely shone throughout it. You really can't beat their two smiles, right?
Thank you for an incredible photographic experience, Sophie and Ritch!

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!
