Styled Bridal Photo Shoot

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy” – Anne Frank

 

 

Happy.

If there is one thing that is truly beautiful without fail, it has to be happy people.

As I have been growing my photography business I have realised that what I love capturing most about people is their happy. What do I mean by “their happy”? I mean what gives them a sparkle in their eye, what makes their heart sing, what means the most to them, and that, is why I love photography. Because when people are in love, or with people they love, they are happy, and what an honour it is to see that emotion through my lens.

Growing my photography has meant I have decided to branch out into other avenues, other opportunities to find and capture happy, and it seems to me that weddings are one place that you can guarantee to find happy. So weddings it is.

I had an idea for Bridal portraits, but no current bride, so instead decided to bring that vision to life with the help of a kind friend loaning me an AMAZEBALLS vintage wedding dress, and in the form of a beautiful and sweet model, Sophie.

It was insanely windy, but as any photographer knows… embrace the wind and you get magic!

It was so much fun.

If you have an idea for your wedding/elopement/engagement/couple shoot but think it might be a little crazy… you’d be surprised what I might consider actually crazy!

I am already taking bookings for 2019, so please get in touch. Let’s have some fun!

Albany

“I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it” – William Shakespeare

 

A recent trip to Albany and a visit to one of my favourite places in the world, The Gap.

The Gap is like nothing you will ever see in your life and I cannot recommend visiting it enough, I feel like my words will never do it justice and pictures barely do. But here are some shots on my little fujifilm x100T (an excellent travel companion if you don’t want to lug a DSLR), though they say that the best camera you have is the one in your hand, which is debatably true haha!

I don’t have a lot to write for this one – but hey if you are planning a small wedding or elopement in Albany… hit me up… there are some ace places for epic photos!

Lindsay + Jordan

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr Suess

 

 

I was approached by a friend of Lindsay and Jordan a week before their wedding. Yes, not your usual wedding request :p !

She told me how Lindsay and Jordan were getting married a park in Fremantle and that their family and friends were helping to pull everything together at short notice. There were extenuating circumstances to the rush, and I felt honoured to have been considered!

There is often an expectation that when we put a wedding together there is only one way to do it, but the reality is, when you get married… you should do exactly whatever the heck you want ❤

Arriving at Booyeembara Park in Fremantle I was struck by its quiet beauty. I didn’t even know this park existed! And there it was, calm and enticing, nestled behind the bustle of High Street. The park is quite large, with a lake in the middle and a wooden deck to walk out on and look over the water. Lindsay had told me they would be getting married on the deck, and standing there looking at the water and ducks I could see why.

Lindsay and Jordan’s friends arrived first, and then the couple along with their baby boy Harry and family arrived. I whisked them away to a more private spot and took their bridal portraits, along with mr Harry making a sleepy appearance! Amongst the green trees, grass and quiet the sun started to descend beginning a beautiful golden hour… just in time for their ceremony!

One of the things that I think surprises so many couples is how fast the moments go, everyone says it, but until you have that experience yourself do you realise how they just zip by! I think this is one of my favourite parts of photography, you get to capture all those images that trigger memories, laughter and tears (hopefully happy!!). Its truly an honour to be involved in someones story.

The lake was calm, the mood was bright, the light was golden and just like that, Lindsay and Jordan were married ❤
