The best part of my job is to hear from couple’s the “amazing time they had doing the shoot” and I did get that from Leah & Jules.

The engagement shoot was nestled amongst the amazing Macedon Ranges just off the side of the road.  It was a location spotted by chance but it made the most amazing setting for this amazing couple.

As an avid film shooter, that was pretty much all i brought along with me.  I hope you enjoy your wonderful day where ever you are in the world.

How time has flown… I remember commencing to build this blog at the start of 2016 however with all the other jobs taking priority, I decided to hold off til when I had a little more time, so here it is!

The wedding of Ben & Jules was simply beautiful to have been part of and I’m forever grateful.  Surrounded by amazing friends, loving family and of course an amazing Bridal Party which provided with plenty of laughs, a few happy tears and most important of all “lot’s of unconditional love”

Thank you to my beautiful friend Tom Beanlands who helped me on this day as my second photographer, I am forever grateful.

I had the opportunity to chill out at one of our many beaches down the coast with Tim & Jackie.  A little break in the stormy weather and this was what we were able to achieve.

It has been 12 months since my last visit back to Sherbrook Forest up in Mount Dandenong.  This time I returned with Kenji & Stephana for their engagement shoot.  It was an amazing little session. Amazing couple, amazing location, amazing results.

I am really looking forward to shooting this very intimate wedding.  A big thanks to Ernest Lew for hanging out for the afternoon and also contributing to this series in a big way.

We traveled down to Otway National Park to a magical place near Beech Forest for Evan & Emily’s engagement shoot.  The forest was quite dense and for late afternoon, it provided some nice filtered light from the old 1938 Californian Redwoods.  Just the smell of the pines was enough to make you close your eyes and listen to the trickling stream of water and the stillness.  On the way to to the location Evan told me about the “how we met” story and more importantly what lengths one man goes to always find a way (or an excuse) to visit Emily.  It was rather cute to be honest…..

I know you will enjoy this series and I look forward to posting up some of the other weddings that are in progress!

Until next time amigo’s!!

This Saturday will be Andy & Kaleigh’s wedding day, so it’s only fitting to share their engagement shoot that we took a few months back.

The back drop was Sherbrook National Park in the Dandenong Ranges.  We mixed it up a little with some Kodak Portra 400 colour film and Kodak Trix 400 Black & White film.

Amazing couple, gorgeous images and a lifetime to share it together.

Be sure to check back in soon for the main event!

It has been a little while since we posted anything on our blog.  Between my day job and working on wedding work this season, it has been a little crazy.  A little while back I spent some time with Ed & Hollie, I loved their british accent and their little stories about how special this beach is to them.  This is a unique spot because Point Addis, where we stood was where Ed proposed to Hollie.  I was told to watch out for the nudists around the bend 🙂

The last time I was in Williamstown shooting a session was at Ash & Helen’s wedding (http://wp.me/p1gbZh-vm) in November last year.  So to be back at a couple of familiar spots in Williamstown was super cool…

Ben chose Williamstown for his engagement shoot backdrop and I loved his reasoning.  Ben shared a number of experiences growing up in Williamstown, of the many the one’s of fond family memories was noticeably told a number of times.  A few beers Ben shared  with close mates whilst seeing them making their next step in life in marriage.  So it was fitting to also include Julie in this little Bayside suburb of Williamstown Memories.

We look forward to bring you their up and coming wedding story so stick around!

We are so blessed to have THE most amazing clients choose Tom and I as their wedding photographers for the 2013/2014 wedding season.  Goran & Victoria’s Geelong wedding was one we had been looking forward to for a good 10 months on the back of an epic wedding season.

Being part of Goran & Victoria’s wedding again reminded us of the significance and importance of family, love and everlasting friendship.  What really also resonated for us is the personalised touches a little DIY approach to a wedding brings.  Check out Victoria’s wedding dress hand made by her Grandmother along with the bridesmaids amazing Grecian style dresses…. amazing timeless pieces.

Well it’s time to reveal this cute couple’s amazing day… too many in this collection so we shall share a small sample.
