A perfect country sunset with Aimee + Adam before they were married the following Autumn. Engagement shoots are a great opportunity to get some extra photos together before your wedding as well as have a test run with me before the big day - it can help with the nerves come show time! Get in touch if you’d like some more info on engagement packages.
Tahlia + Darcy | 03.11.2018 | Avon Ridge Vineyard
From beginning to end this was a love filled celebration - Tahlia + Darcy traveled back to home soil from their NSW residence to finally make their little family official surrounded by their nearest and dearest. November in Victoria is always a gamble weather wise (actually, let’s be honest - any time of year in Victoria is a gamble weather wise!). The rain shied away but there were some crazy winds thrashing through the winery were the celebrations took place. A few extra bobby pins and they were good to go - taking it all in their stride! It was such a wonderful day to share with these guys and their families! Their little boy Bohdi is only a few days older than my own little lady baby so it’s been fun to navigate mamahood with Tahlia the last 20 months! A few frames from The Dugan Wedding -
It’s always a little nerve racking to shoot another photographer! Nic is the face behind Light & Type and certainly knows her way around a camera! It was an honour to shoot her wedding and engagement session with her main man Jack.
Star-crossed lovers, so very close to my heart. Lauren and I have had a wonderful relationship over the last twelve years and it has been just the very best to watch her love story unfold before my very eyes. I adore both Lauren and Ben and am absolutely giddy to see them make it official in only a few days time. The best is yet to come, dear friends!
Jenni + Nic’s destination wedding in their home-away-from-home, Phillip Island, was the most incredibly laid back, fun and festive affair. Jenni + Nic knew exactly how they wanted their day to go and were not afraid to shy away from tradition. From choosing to have me spend time with the boys at the beach instead of getting ready, to that heart-melting first look - the day was completely them. They wanted to spend as much time together and with their tribe of wedding guests and I relished in the short and sweet opportunity for traditional bridal portraits. The food was exquisite (even though I was 6 weeks pregnant and a little restricted in that respect!) and the location was glorious. These two welcomed a baby girl earthside just last week and I’m so pumped to catch up with them again and meet their little lady baby!
Alison + Jesse were wed in East Gippsland at the beautiful Redcourt Homestead grounds. We were b-l-e-s-s-e-d with some autumn Victorian weather and spent the day clouded in glorious (warm!) sunshine - all the better for bush walking/sea-side smooching! We ventured a little outside of the Redcourt grounds but returned in time for THE most magic sunset light! One of my favourite parts of the tail end of the SS wedding season. Loved up and surrounded by their nearest and dearest - Alison and Jesse’s wedding was a ‘goodun to finish off my season.
The sweetest love story that had been years in the making - Dave + Ali were positively gleeful to be wed on a steamy Summer afternoon in their hometown, Sale in Central Gippsland. These two were surrounded by an adoring tribe of family, friends and vendors (who were all the same!) - all too happy to come together to make their wedding day everything they could have hoped it would be. Their wedding was the ultimate DIY extravaganza with Ali’s bestie Steph working some serious magic over the open slate of Sale Baptist Church.
Eliza + Rob were wed amongst the hills of Traralgon South on Eliza’s family property on a glorious summer evening. The area, and Eliza’s family home, were destroyed in the Black Saturday fires. Pockets of the property, remarkably, remained unscathed. Of most significance was the beautiful garden Eliza’s late mother spent many of her days finding solace in. It was a sentimental, beautiful space for Eliza + Rob to begin their married adventure together - surrounded by their closest tribe in a celebration of the truest sense.
