Watsons Bay is one of many wedding destinations that we know well, and as it's such a popular location for weddings we're always pushing ourselves to seek out new spots and fresh perspectives so the photos we deliver to our couples stand out from the norm.Read More
A few days before the wedding Gretta mentioned that she would probably be the most relaxed bride I've ever photographed. I'm still not sure whether it was a warning or a statement, but either way it was true. Through hair and make up, getting dressed and getting to the ceremony Gretta didn't show a single moment of stress, anxiety or nerves. She was calmness personified.Read More
MAIJA & DAN | 17:27 | THE SECRET GARDEN, LAVENDER BAY
The notion of a secret garden in the heart of Sydney is a little far fetched. But it exists, and here's proof that two people can feel a million miles from anywhere in the centre of a busy metropolis.Read More
We were keen to feature one more wedding from 2013 before the year bids adieu and that honour goes to Angela and Steve. Their intimate lunchtime wedding at Bells at Killcare was perfect; just twelve guests plus a few kids and all of them bar the best man and maid of honour were family. Angela looked incredible with her pale blue Carla Zampatti dress flowing gently in the light coastal breeze while Steve's navy suit and open necked white shirt perfectly complemented the elegant but relaxed setting.Read More
It's not often that I post photos from late in the reception when the dancing is underway and I'm not sure why I don't do it more. After all, by this point all the formalities are over so everyone, especially the bride and groom, can relax and really celebrate.
Michelle had an extra reason to celebrate. November had set new rainfall records in Sydney, and on one of its wettest days Michelle faced the dilemma that no bride wants to deal with. With the ceremony two hours away the wedding coordinator at Q Station Manly called Michelle and asked her to decide whether she wanted to go with her preferred outdoor wharf location or the indoor wet weather option. And she needed a decision. Immediately.Read More
They arrived at The Boathouse for their cocktail reception a little later than they were scheduled to, but that's all good; when you're having a beach wedding the last thing you worry about is clock watching. And besides, a wedding is a live event, not a rehearsed production, so as long as everyone enjoys the day that's all that matters.Read More
In a perfect example of actions speaking louder than words, there's really nothing much to say other than to introduce the delightful Susannah and Alex enjoying a shower of rose petals as they exit St Judes church in Randwick.
This sequence was masterfully captured by Amy.Read More
I don't think I've ever used the word "epic" to describe one of our weddings but if there's ever going to be a suitable time, this is it.
But don't get me wrong, Penny and Mat's wedding wasn't epic as in mountains, helicopters and sabertooth tigers. It was epic as in bursting with more love, energy and bromances than we've ever witnessed.
In saying that there was an epic view from the InterContinental and some seriously epic lighting in the Garrison Church. The transformation of the Museum of Contemporary Art by The Collaborative and Pollen took epic to a new level, and let's not forget the partying that redefined the definition of epic.
Ok, it was epic in every sense. Enjoy (epically).Read More
Posing. The very word strikes fear into the hearts of couples and photographers alike.
No surprise then that pretty much every couple we meet with tell us that they love our bridal portraits but hate the idea of posing or being away from their guests for too long. That's cool because we don't like posing either and we definitely don't want to turn a wedding day into a photoshoot. So we reassure them that posing is kept to an absolute minimum and most of the images they see don't involve any posing at all. We simply head to a location with beautiful light, let them spend some time alone with each other, and get them back to their guests. Cue looks of scepticism.Read More
Sometimes everything just falls into place.
Three weeks ago I received a call from the incredibly talented stylist Victoria Cameron asking if I was available to help her clients Verena and Stefan who, due to issues with an unscrupulous photographer, needed to find a rather more reliable professional for their big day. It's always heartbreaking and frustrating to hear of couples who are placed in such an uncomfortable situation when they are planning the happiest day of their life, so I was delighted to confirm that I was available.Read More
