Wedding photographers usually slow down in the winter. I love to make sure I shoot for myself and enjoy the process, without any ultimate agenda or expectation. Here are some images that I've also posted on my tumblr, so if you're in to that stuff please follow me there. These were all shot on a Fuji X100 or my D3s with the Sigma 35mm.
I'm photographing Holly and David's wedding up at the Sunshine Coast later this year, and after spending this time with them on the weekend I'm looking forward to it even more. They met via mutual friends, and shared a first date that lasted a whole weekend including a picnic in the park at Kangaroo Point cliffs. What a cool date! I think that as well as being a lovely set of photos for the couple, the images show why I offer engagement shoots. They are a great opportunity to learn how to relax around your photographer and get a feel for their individual style, more than just looking at previous work. These two were really comfortable having me around and I'm super glad they have trusted me with capturing their wedding.
What a day! I'm really excited to share this with you all. I photographed Nat's brother Keegan's wedding last year, and was really looking forward to seeing everyone again a second time around. These guys know how to party! Nat, Keegan and Simon got ready at the Treasury Building in the CBD, with customary Xbox and shoe shining. Caitlin, Jess and Steph got ready at Caitlin and Jess's parents house in St Lucia, after doing hair and makeup at Earth Hair and Body just down the road. The ceremony was at Christchurch St. Lucia, and the reception at the Loft in West End. And there was dancing! Lots of dancing! There may have been some Eagle Rock... let the photos tell the story.
You know you've done something right for someone when you can't stop smiling whilst editing a wedding. I have had the pleasure of being friends with both Dylan and his sister Miriam since high school, and when Dylan and Diana asked if I was available to photograph their wedding I was really honoured, as I knew that it was not a request made out of convenience. These two had such a beautiful day planned at the stunning Sarabah Estate Vineyard, and were married by Wendy Marshall who I've worked with once before. We made some photographs in the area and returned to the vineyard, where everyone partied on well in to the night before the busses came to ferry us all back to Canungra. It was a stunning day.
Weddings are about people being together. With each other, with friends, with family, together to celebrate. That's what Dylan and Diana's wedding was all about, and I feel that this photo represents that really well. More to come!
