Lauren & Jarrah

One of the things I love about shooting weddings is that I get to travel all over the place, but there is something special about getting to shoot in my own backyard too. So when legends Lauren & Jarrah told me they were getting married at East Elevation in Brunswick I was pumped. 

Despite a freak thunderstorm plummeting down literally seconds after the ceremony (causing guests to run for cover straight after the group photo!) and eating up most of what would usually be our time for the bridal party portrait session, these two were happy to just roll with the punches and make the most of their time with their guests. We managed to sneak out of the reception once the rain had eased for a brief tour of Brunswick's cobblestone alleys and street art before heading back to East Elevation for a gorgeous warehouse love party.

Em & Dan

Em and Dan decided to do things their own way and show their commitment to each other with a gorgeous ceremony and rocking party at the Fairfield Boathouse with no involvement of God or government. In the lead up to their big day friends and family asked them why they were going to the trouble of planning a wedding if it wasn't going to be legally recognised, but on the day there was no questioning their devotion to each other. I love this notion - that love transcends tradition or legalities - and all that matters is the bond between 2 people. It's really as simple as that.

Twenty Sixteen

Putting together a 'best-of' post at the end of each year is almost an impossible task for a wedding photographer. How many photos should I feature? How do I choose my faves out of a whole year of incredible memories, people and places? Last year the process was just too much for me, I was overwhelmed with it all and chose to just look forward to the next busy wedding season.

2016 was a bit different - I was lucky enough to travel across Australia and the world to capture some amazing weddings and memories and it's totally inspired me to reflect on the year that was. In fact, between you and me, I was a little sad to see 2016 go - although it was a year of global uncertainty and turmoil, I had such an inspiring year personally that I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye. But here we are in the early days of a new year and I'm ready to look forward again, but not before paying tribute to some of the beautiful couples and adventures I had last year.

Big thanks to all my wonderful couples who chose me to document their big days, to all the insanely talented fellow photographers I met who are now my friends, and my close friends and family who continue to support me. You are all freaking legends.

Rebecca & James

There were so many highlights to this awesome wedding that is genuinely difficult to sum it up into a few sentences. Beck completely stole the show in her stunning red gown which shone against the epic industrial goodness that is The Substation in Melbourne.

For their portrait session, Beck had organised access to the Steam Railyards in Newport where she volunteers. I love a quirky passion and get so pumped when we can incorporate something so personal into a couple's wedding portraits. Although the original plan didn't work out, we talked our way into the railyard sheds where Beck & James climbed up onto Beck's favourite steam engine (I love that she has a favourite steam engine) for some portraits which came out looking like stills from a movie. I pretty much had to pinch myself. Amazing clients, epic backdrop, good light - check, check, check. So happy for these two.
