Beata & Joel are one of those couples who after 1 minute you feel you’ve known forever, and I’m sure everyone will agree, are just gorgeous! Having met through friends 9 years ago at a place called the Poolroom, Joel proposed at the local park while they were taking their dog for a walk.
It was a beautiful, however very windy day when they celebrated their wedding at the relaxed and casual (yet elegantly beautiful) venue Sandbar in St Kilda. Congratulations guys, such a pleasure to be a part of your special day x
Lee Yen told me they didn’t like photographs. I think she was lying ;) This gorgeous couple have been very busy with study, work and travel that we very almost didn’t find a date we could hold their engagement shoot! We were all very excited for this session to also include their baby, who unfortunately wouldn’t be allowed at their wedding at Stones of the Yarra Valley. And may I just say, THE most behaved puppy ever??! Very excited to be sharing their amazing day at Stones very soon! x
Get ready for an epic post! As I said in their engagement photography post, “Amy and Dan are one of those couples who just ooze romance, love and fun”, and well, their wedding could almost be said to be themed around such! What an amazing day… Honestly this is one of those weddings where I’m lost for words to describe it, so I’ll simply let the images do the talking! Congratulations Amy & Dan, certainly a wedding to remember! xx
I’ve known Krissy for almost 15 years and was so excited when she called to say that Ivan had proposed and would I photograph their wedding!
Krissy & Ivan met at a mutual friend’s 21st birthday party. They were on a jumping castle. Yep! How cool is that!?? They have been together for 10 years, when last Christmas, Ivan asked Krissy to marry him.
Now for most Australian’s (ok mainly Victorian’s) Grand Final weekend is a big one. Well, it was much bigger for these two lovebirds! Two ceremony’s and the party of all parties at Encore in St Kilda. I mentioned on our Facebook page that their wedding weekend was EPIC, and well, it was!
The first civil ceremony was under the amazing ‘Dome’ on Collins St, Melbourne. Now normally the city can be a little difficult to navigate on a weekend, however not on Grand Final day. It felt almost like a ghost town! We went on a little journey around the city for our photos, whilst listening/watching to the grand final on one of the groomsman’s mobiles. (I was super happy, he was not so much… yes you guessed right, I’m a Hawthorn supporter!) We completed our adventure back at Encore in St Kilda, where we chilled out to watch the final quarter of the football and relax before the party started. The reception was a wonderful celebration with photos of their parents and grandparents weddings, and few rounds of Macedonian dancing! Their first dance was AMAZING, and choreographed by Krissy’s sister and head bridesmaid, Trish.
The next morning was the traditional Macedonian Orthodox ceremony, followed by a lunch with close family & friends.
Congratulations Krissy & Ivan, it was a wonderful weekend! We had a ball with you both x
HAPPY NEW YEAR! To welcome 2014, first meet the gorgeous babies of 2013!
Is it just us or did 2013 fly by!? A very busy year for the studio! We saw many clients returning with their newest additions and many new wonderful families!
In March, I entered the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) 16×20 Photography Competition for the first time, receiving two Silver with Distinctions and a GOLD! At the AIPP APPA awards, receiving a Silver with Distinction. At the Awards night received Associateship with the AIPP, and later in 2013 received Associates Honour with the WPPI.
