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!

A bayside suburb of Williamstown was our next location for Ash & Helen’s gorgeous wedding day.  Every couple has a story behind how they met and this was one was all about “juice”, in fact the exact words from Ash was “Helen’s juice was amazing”.  And here we are today.

We enjoyed every bit of the day from the frantic bouquet’s made by Helen’s mum and sisters that very morning to the amazing Thai fusion banquet at Middle Fish and the abundance of warmth from the many family and friends that night.  I must admit too that this seasons brides have been some of the most talented and creative bunch with another hand crafted boutique wedding dress.  We are proud to share a little bit of the day for all to enjoy and we know for sure that Ash will be enjoying that “amazing juice” for the rest of his life.

Congratulations Ash & Helen we love you guys and we look forward to sharing some more stories together over some “amazing juice”.

Hanging out with Andrew, Theresa, Charlotte & Ben was pretty cool.  We chilled out on a strange summery 27 degree day however it was in the middle of Autumn over in a part of the Melbourne I don’t normally hangout in…. Bon Beach.

For Andrew & Theresa – Bon Beach means so much.  You see this is their backyard – this is where they play as a family, take walks as a family against the shimmering sunsets overlooking Melbourne’s beautiful bay….. This is Bon Beach, this is home!

Again thanks Andrew, Theresa, Charlotte & Ben for being such a great family and just a really pleasant to hang out with!

Early December afternoon was when I first caught up with Rhonda & Jim down at a local cafe in Queenscliff.  Discussions about their up and coming wedding was a thrill, especially when it was 4 weeks away.

Now the ironic thing was Rhonda had told me that Jim was a little “camera shy!” but I think really he is a born natural in the modelling department.  So the other “Big” decision for both Rhonda & Jim on this day was to choose the beach or the awesome historic trains of Queenscliff, and guess what? it was trains…….  Chillout as Rhonda & Jim take to the stage in their recent engagement shoot.  Thanks guys for being an awesome couple to work with and I’m sure you guys are looking forward to seeing your wedding photos real soon!

We’ve been running a little behind in the blog department however scheduled to be back on “track soon!”

 

Queens Birthday long weekend was a real treat for the {artifex} crew, we spent some time with Nicole, Damien and Cheeky Thomas over at Barwon Heads.

The wintery afternoon certainly got warmer as we were out chasing Thomas down as he ran out towards the open beach front.

Thomas’ favourite superhero “Spiderman!”

The first thing that captures your attention when you notice lil Sophie is her gorgeous eyes…. as well as her cute button smile… and also her cute little hat…!

Lil Sophie looks so cute sitting in such a big world with open spaces….

So angelic as lil Sophie sits amongst the clouds….
