Beth & Rich’s Urban Wedding

Beth and Rich approached me 10 months ago asking if I would be interested in taking their Save the Date and Wedding photos.  I had taken Rich’s sister and brother-in-law’s photos (Alex and Patrice) a few years back and they liked the style of my shots.  I hadn’t shot a full wedding in a couple of years and I wasn’t sure if I could do it (self-doubt always creeps in when I knew I could do it).  After a pretty cool Save the Date shoot in Cremone’s back streets (see blog post 3 below) and realising how photogenic Beth and Rich were, I thought – I can do this.  Beth and Rich were awesome – we worked out a plan of attack – 5 locations starting with the Groom in Hawthorn, Bride in the Melbourne CBD, Marriage Ceremony in South Yarra, Wedding Party shots in funky Carlton and finally the Wedding Reception at Two Ton Max in North Melbourne – phew! Logistics were full on but we got there, had a blast and these are the results….

Save The Date!!!

I was fortunate enough to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon with Beth and Richard scouting about Richmond for some cool locations. Beth and Richard wanted photos to be used for their Save the Date wedding cards and that they were thinking of having an ‘Industrial’ Melbourne theme. I think we came up trumps in Cremorne – the couple look fantastic and the photos look awesome – it really fit the brief. Here are a couple of shots of this very handsome couple in action….the 24/7 winning shot is directly below…. 🙂

Claire and Josh’s Coolart, Wetlands Wedding

Following my first venture into the unknown of solo wedding photography, Claire and Josh approached me in March last year and asked if I would like to come along to shoot their big day down in the Mornington Peninsula.  The wedding ceremony was to take place in the beautiful gardens of Coolart, Wetlands followed by the reception at the quintessential Merricks General Store.

As a young and sporty couple who were looking for a photographer to blend in rather than stand out and who wanted someone who would capture their guests just generally having a good time, I knew that Claire and Josh’s wedding would be a fun to shoot from the outset….and it didn’t disappoint  – the bride was gorgeous and gracious, the groom was so happy and relaxed that he could have been lying horizontal and the guests made sure that the party rocked!  The stand out moment of the day was the first dance – the best jive I’ve seen….Strictly Come Dancing eat your heart out….
