Luke & Charlotte… the Wedding.


The great thing about weddings is that no two are alike.

I mean, the structure is always pretty standard, but it’s the gold, unexpected moments that keep you coming back for more.  The moments that grab you when they happen – and you know they’ll stick with you forever.  There’s always at least one.

As the photographer, I reckon I’m in a position to notice them a bit more – I’m always on the hunt for it.  And when they come, oh lordy… I do quite love that.

Luke & Charlotte’s wedding had quite a few.  If you know Luke like I do (he’s my personal trainer & boot camp/gym instructor), he’s the classic unassuming, quiet type – except for when he’s yelling at us to pedal harder during his Spin class… *sigh*

But on a personal level, he keeps his cards pretty close to his chest – never really gives too much away.  At the reception however, during the speeches – we all caught a glimpse of the man behind the man.  We saw a guy who isn’t afraid to tell it how it is, or how he really feels.  When he looked over to everyone’s mate, Barry Robertson while shedding a tear and declaring him as the closest thing to a father he’s had, there almost wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Congratulations Luke & Charlotte.  What a weekend.

Paul & Jess Belgenny Farm
When Jess & Paul got in touch with me to shoot their beautiful day in Camden, I knew this was gonna be something extra special. They've got a gorgeous little 2 year old boy, and well, I've got an almighty soft spot for little ones at weddings - especially when it's their parents standing at the altar! And of course the beautiful Belgenny Farm in Camden didn't disappoint either. My first time shooting there, it's awesome. I went along for a recce the day before and scoped out some fields next door for hopefully some awesome droning shots, but it wasn't to be. Locked gates. *sigh* All said and done though - it was still an amazing day had ...
Andrew & Alex Parsons – Palm Beach
Meet Andrew and Alex. Together since school. Looking back at the days images, it's fantastically obvious how much fun we all had. One thing about being a photographer - and therefore a total fly on the wall - for the day of the wedding, you get a fairly crazy view of the back story. Meet the family, get to know the stories, laugh along at the embarrassing speeches, even though in truth you don't really actually know the characters. The Parsons & Volkers are a fun bunch, that's for sure. There were SO many stories. If while you're looking through these you're thinking, Alex looks like she's had a great day... That's 'cause she has.  We al ...
Kayleigh & Sean Hunter Valley
What a great day.  Sean & Kayleigh chose the beautiful Hunter Valley for their day, and this was my first time shooting in vineyards - something surprisingly, I hadn't had the chance to do.  After a spate of rainy weddings, I was definitely ready for some sunshine! Sean & Kayleigh's day was a little different to most - the ceremony was a small, intimate affair - only closest friends and family.  The twist - the reception later was actually disguised as their engagement party.  Genius.
