Sarah & Jay | Brisbane Wedding engagement photography

I caught up with this gorgeous couple recently in Brisbane whilst Alex & I were visiting friends to go see the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who.  (Yep, I’m admitting that, we are in fact NERDS.)  I must say Sarah & Jay were very patient with me, as I was struggling a little.  I believe it was a good 35 degrees that day and HUMID!  Although I once lived in Brisbane, it always takes me a day to get used to the weather again!  Photographing them in Brisbane was really special, as this is where they met and now live.  So we choose Southbank, as the photo opportunities are endless!  All we really had planned was a quick trip around to Kangaroo Point to capture the Brisbane Skyline, which we did just before a refreshing light rainshower!

We are so looking forward to capturing your big day!  See you soon at the Werribee Mansion! xx


Urban Love | Melbourne Engagement Photography


Meet Gillian & Josh!  This gorgeous pair are busy preparing their wedding next April, which Alex and I are super excited to photograph.  Gillian and I sat at one of our meetings discussing the amazing photo opportunities at their reception.   I’m pretty sure I sat there with a silly grin and big googly eyes as she described the wooden balcony in the ceiling of their reception room.  I have visions already!

We moved the engagement shoot forward, as Gillian had an amazing idea for her ‘Save the Date’ cards incorporating a photo, which I’ve seen and look absolutely fantastic!  We decided on an Urban theme, with lots of colour, with the graffiti alley ways in Melbourne’s CBD.  Such a gorgeous day, we also enjoyed the shade by the Yarra River.  In the lead-up to the AFL Grand Final, Federation Square was bustling with people and footballs, such a iconic symbol of Melbourne.  These guys turned a few heads as we stopped in the middle of the chaos for a few romantic images:)

Congratulations on your engagement again guys!  Bring on April 2014!

Wedding Feature | Peter Yacono Productions

It’s Spring!  Which means ‘Wedding Season” is in full swing, as is the planning for upcoming weddings.  Many of our Brides & Grooms ask for recommendations for vendors to use on their wedding day.  Be it Hair & Make-up, Florists, Video Production, Invitations..  With this in mind, we would like to start a feature of some of our favorite wedding businesses dedicated to making your big day, ONE TO REMEMBER!

For our first feature, I’m really excited to share Peter Yacono Productions.  You may remember Kate & Tom’s amazing wedding featured on our blog last year.

Peter is a DJ, but he doesn’t just play music at your reception. He creates unique and highly personalised wedding experiences. I have found this to be very different to the industry norm.  MANY weddings tend to hire a DJ and then have a very typical playlist to cover all bases to please their guests.  The same music.. and the same generic way of doing formalities.

He sees himself as a ‘Wedding Producer’, and helps you piece together the finer details to produce your most perfect and memorable wedding reception.  Seeking to make the event highly unique and personal to his clients.

“I truly believe in quality rather than quantity; putting the emphasis into creating one-of-a-kind events. Together we brainstorm to produce unique and creative ideas that are specifically tailored for your reception. Through these preparation meetings, your notion of a dream wedding builds to become a reality” Peter Yacono

Lynette & Paul | Country Wedding Photography

Lynette & Paul met at a local nightclub, and later Paul surprised Lynette with a gondola ride along the Yarra River where he proposed with a custom made ring! (How romantic is that!!!)

Every aspect of their wedding had personal touches.  Lynette wore a beautiful, elegant gown made of sequins, with a long train veil borrowed from her best friend.  The venue is owned by Lynette, and her wedding was the first (hopefully of many!) held in her gorgeous venue Lady Lavender’s Tea Rooms in Bunyip.

With a sister for a florist, the wedding was a something out of a flower show, absolutely amazing (I could have spent all day photographing all the floral details!  The reception was a fun, relaxed – party atmosphere.  We didn’t spent very long with the formal portraits so the bridal party could enjoy celebrating with their guests – but as you can see walking only steps from the church, was just the most beautiful and romantic places for us to photograph.

And I have to mention that the Bride & Groom had a pretty interesting argument leading up to the day.  Being their own DJ’s for the reception, they had a difference of opinion on what should be played.  For a die-hard Elvis fan, having his wife-to-be putting her foot down and refusing Elvis to be played, well…. (wait til you see…. that’s all I’m saying!)

I hope you enjoy the showcase!  Congratulations once again Lynette & Paul, we enjoyed every second of the wedding!

Werribee Mansion Wedding Photography | Justine & Keeden

This is a wedding I’ll never forget. From the moment Keeden called me about photographing their wedding, I knew this couple were special. From the second I sat down with them to discuss their wedding, I felt we were old friends. Lucky for me, they felt the same and booked me!

Their wedding day was honestly one of the most sincere, loving, emotional, at times hysterical, and relaxing day I’ve had the honour of photographing. The day went without a hitch. There was no stress, it was all smiles, and I’m sure the guests who may not have known the extended family well, will agree that by the end of the night, you were considered family.

They are couple to be jealous of.. How they met is so romantic (think secret admirer, love letters – with no creepiness!) a proposal at Keeden’s 30th in front of family & friends.

(And to add to Keeden’s embarrassment the said introduction letter asking Justine out was on display at the wedding!!!)

Every moment of their day had personal touches. Cards to each other, family traditions including gifts, letters and jewellery.    Both were very close to their grandmothers, who sadly could not be present, however this didn’t mean that there were not an important part of the day.  Justine wore a heart shaped token of her grandmother’s wedding gown inside her dress, close to her heart.

The bridal party were so much fun, and watch out for the images of them “shuffling”!

A massive thank-you to Mandy & Alex for your help on the day, you guys rock!

Justine & Keeden – it was a joy to witness the beginning of your new chapter in life together.. All the best for the many years to come xx
