A gorgeous day on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland… you can’t ask for a better setting for a wedding, right? Throw into the mix an uber-cool wedding party, a quaint hinterland chapel, a happy group of friends and family and an awesome reception venue, and there you have it – the perfect wedding! That’s how Will and Simone’s wedding panned out. It was a real pleasure to shoot. I photographed it for them a while back (I know, slack blogger) and everytime I go through the photos I find something else unique to like about the day. Here’s a few of my favourite shots from the day.
I did this shoot with Paul Foote and June Meyers a while back, but with wedding season kicking off I haven’t had much of a chance to blog. I realised this morning though that we’re into November and Paul will be competing at Muscle Mania in Las Vegas this month! Its an amazing achievement, one that he can add to a seriously growing list of accolades. Good luck Paul, we’re all joining your lovely June in cheering you on every step of the way!

Sunday afternoon proved to me that small weddings are the best! Johan and Adriani got married in Smart Park in Spearwood in a small civil ceremony with Johan’s brother and mother looking on. It was an extraordinarily meaningful and heartfelt time, and one I felt genuinely privileged to be a part of. I’ve had a quick look at the photos and edited a couple I really liked. Hopefully they show how much fun we had!
Phoebe and Brett booked their wedding photography with me about two years ago… these guys have got their planning down to a fine art! We haven’t caught up since our first meeting all those months ago, so it was nice to catch up and have a chat about their wedding day. They live down in Mandurah so it was real good of them to make the drive up for the photoshoot. Being the cruisy, surfing types, the beach was the natural location choice! And have you noticed how hazy the Perth sky has been lately? Smoke from a bush fire down south apparently. Well the haze acts as kind of giant softbox for the sun, taking away the harsh glare and shadows. It makes for some pretty sweet photos… here’s a few from the shoot that I like! See you on the 10th for your wedding guys!
Matt and Leslie’s wedding fell on a beautiful sunny Saturday in December. Although the heat can be unbearable at this time of year, the wedding was in Fremantle so the infamous ‘Doctor’ blew in and cooled us all down! I had met Leslie and her lovely ladies at her place in Kardinya for some bridal prep shots, and then met Matt at the Fremantle Prison where the ceremony was held. It’s a great venue – quaint and picturesque and with a real sense of history. The streets of Fremantle are obviously a photographers paradise too, full of quirky corners and heritage-stye backdrops. So after the ceremony we were able to go out for a walk and get some cool photos with Matt and Leslie. Thanks for lett ing me be a part of your day guys, and all the best in your new life :)
The good thing about being a tad slow at blogging is I get to relive a wedding day by going through the photos and chosing the ones to go up here. This morning it was Nicole and Dean’s wedding’s turn, and I was pleasantly reminded of how their daughter Addison would always smile and clap and giggle whenever she saw the camera! Couldn’t ask for a better little model really. Nicole and Dean, you guys weren’t so bad either (Sorry about making you sit for so long on the Vietnamese bicycle Dean!)Nicole and Dean got married at the All Saint’s church in their home neighborhood of Leeming, surrounded by close friends and family. The festivities continued in the garden of Nicole’s parents home just around the corner, and we stopped by a local park to get some photos of the happy couple. Here’s some of my favourite wedding photos from the day:
