It’s been a particularly exciting and busy year for Amy and myself. Never ones to sit still we entered 2018 with a couple of new ventures in mind that would require a fair amount of time to bring to life, so we set ourselves a target / limit of thirty weddings which we comfortably achieved. As usual many of our bookings came from word or mouth, referrals and testimonials so thank you to all our clients, followers, industry brethren and friends who put in a good word for us!Read More
This was a wedding about resilience and perseverance. It’s often said that the only thing you can’t control on your wedding day is the weather and for Courtney and Nash the weather was their foil on Saturday at Bendooley Estate. I’d been watching the weather forecast all week, and on the day itself I was keeping an eye on the radar map every hour. The forecast had been heavy rain and a high likelihood of a thunderstorm but as we approached the ceremony time with no sign of the wet stuff heading our way the positive vibes started flowing that we would get through the ceremony unscathed. And we almost did.Read More
It was a long awaited and much anticipated return to Centennial Park for Sammy and Nick’s wedding on Friday. Almost a year ago we photographed Nick’s brother Anthony’s wedding at Bondi Beach and we couldn’t wait to catch up with their fantastic family and friends again.Read More
Bimbadgen Estate in the Hunter Valley has always had a special place in my heart. After sampling their fantastic produce during a wine tour I signed up as a member and enjoyed receiving their care parcels for several years. I also saw one of my Motown heros Lionel Richie perform there back in 2011. So I was especially excited to return to Bimbadgen to shoot my first wedding at their restaurant, Esca.Read More
It was a wedding thirteen years in the making for high school sweethearts Eliza and Matt. Despite numerous nudges and hints it was patience that their friends and family had to exercise and that virtue was finally rewarded on, fittingly, Grand Final weekend.Read More
It was an exciting day for us as we had the pleasure of working with yet another amazing couple as well as shooting in two new venues and managing one of our biggest weddings yet!Read More
We’re just a few days into spring, but the sunny and 31C weather forecast couldn’t have been more perfect for Miriam and Tom’s wedding at their favourite beach, Balmoral.
The day started in a more formal manner, however, with both the boys and girls getting ready in the historic surrounds of the spectacular Westin Sydney. Now, in situations like this we’re used to the girls having the better of the two rooms due to the extra space required for hair and make-up and, well, because girls. But Miriam’s room was on a completely new level. Due to a housekeeping issue this bride found herself upgraded to the Presidential Suite! The images here should give you a feel for the space but let’s just say it was larger than most people’s homes and I’m now concerned that I’ll struggle shooting in a standard sized room (not really).
Once we reluctantly vacated the hotel it was all sunshine and sunscreen through the ceremony on Rocky Point Island and photos along The Esplanade before finishing up at one of our favourite venues, the Public Dining Room.Read More
Gee I love Filo weddings. They just seem to have the perfect mix of culture, tradition, emotion, amazing smiles, and bad ass dance moves. It could just be that the fantastic Maria and Gerald came from perfect families and happened to invite the perfect crowd, but I’m guessing that their day is pretty much par for the course for this friendly and graceful nation.Read More
It was supposed to rain.
We don't like to think negatively on a wedding day, especially knowing from experience that the coastal weather forecast can be highly unreliable. But it was supposed to rain, as in 90% chance and a possible thunderstorm in the afternoon, as in when the outdoor ceremony was scheduled for.
So when I arrived at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel to cover Emily getting ready, I was bracing myself for a conversation with a disheartened bride who had resigned herself to the wet weather contingency plan.
I had clearly underestimated Emily.Read More
After a winter staycation in Chippendale we kicked off another wedding season on Saturday with the effervescent Bernie and Hally. As with TV shows and soccer games there's always high expectations for the season opener as it sets the standard for the rest of the season, and let's just say these legends delivered! And I'm not even talking about the venues, the outfits or the styling of the reception. Bernie and Hally are two of the loveliest, most genuine people we've had the pleasure of working with. Their love for each other was on display the entire day and their beaming smiles and constant laughter kept everyone's spirits high. When we work with couples like this there really isn't any hard work for us to do, we simply enjoy watching the day unfold.Read More
