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 ❤

Hi!

Well this is daunting!

Welcome to my brand new photography blog, here I hope you can get to know me and my passion of taking photos ❤

Well this is daunting!

Welcome to my brand new photography blog, here I hope you can get to know me and my passion for taking photos ❤

My hope is that this blog will give you a flavour of who I am, and give you a sense of what kind of photographer I am, what I produce and whether you love it enough to have me take your photo.

My passion has always been for animals and nature, but as I have grown creatively and in skill I have found myself drawn to spooky subjects. These are my little side projects and creative outlets. Quite far removed from my generally sunny disposition 😛

Recently I have begun photographing more and more people, and I love it.

I love capturing moments and expressions and secret smiles. I also like to keep it small, and simple. So if you are after someone for a huge endless wedding day with lots of high energy smiles.. I am probably not your gal.

However!

If the thought of a secret ceremony, or a small gathering or even a little picnic just fills your heart to the brim… well my friend… I think its time we caught up and talked prices!

I love Perth and its surrounds, I love its light and sunshine and rain and its hidden special places. I love its old buildings and modern street art, the gardens and the ocean. I love how you can be in the city, drive 40 minutes and be standing near fields. If you are after someone to follow you as you explore… pick me pick me!

My hope is to specialise in elopements and small weddings. I love the intimacy of these occasions and think there are some truly magic moments to be had.

I look forward to meeting you, please, introduce yourself 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
