Bri and Micael have a beautiful love story.
Meeting for the first time as teens on holidays they were seperated by circumstance and distance. Years later they serendipitously find each other again. Still in love from that first holiday romance they rekindle the fire that was smouldering for years.
I had to somehow convey the romance of their story in photos.
Shooting the wedding at the amazing localles of the Mercure resort in the hunter valley certainly helped, as did such a loving and open couple.
Enjoy these photos and let me know how I can tell your love story at your wedding.
A wedding in Jamberoo at St Matthew's Catholic Church followed by their reception in Stanwell Tops at Tumbling Waters Retreat. I can't express how much I enjoyed being part of the celebrations shooting this wedding.
Sidonia and Daniel's wedding was style and class from beginning to end.
Sarah and Pascal wed in the beautiful surrounds of Kangaroo Valley.
Kangaroo Valley is also one of the jewels of NSW. From the historic Hampton Bridge to the pristine waters that run underneath. They held the ceremony and reception at Baxter House at 251 Jacks Corner Rd.
Nestled in bush land this period style home is filled with antiques and charm oozes out of every room. The hosts were incredibly accomodating and the grazing table menu was delicious.
Nalini and Michael met in High school. After drifting to opposite sides of the country they were reunited. Such is how love is. When it's meant to be, it's meant to be. After falling in love all over again the next step naturally was to get engaged and then married. The wedding at Lakeside Golf Club was a small and intimate affair with their closest friends and relatives attending. The Golf club has an assortment of locations to have your romantic portraits done between the ceremony on the lawn and the reception. If you are planning a wedding in Sydney please reach out and see how we can help. Mylene and I are always happy to meet for a no obligation consultation to help you plan a perfect day and to be sure You get the photos You deserve.
Katarina and Ben's Wedding on the Northern Beaches.
Ally and Gareth wanted a more intimate style of wedding.
The chose to have a small ceremony with family in Parramatta Birth Deaths and Marriages. Then we took some group photos by the river and shortly after drove over to Nurragingy Reserve in Dooside where we shot their romantic portraits. Final highlight of the day was the wedding reception at Aura Blacktown in Prospect.
Constance and Aidan were married in Australia's oldest Anglican church parish St Philips York St. After the beautiful ceremony we headed to Observatory Hill which overlooks the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Then it was time to party and off we went to Wylie's Baths at Coogee. This place has some of the best views of any venue I've been. To top it all off we were blessed with a rainbow!
Ally and Squidy are also photographers which made being chosen as their photographer mean even more to me. A Parramatta registry ceremony and a set of romantic portraits in Nurrgingy Reserve in Doonside was followed by a delicious dinner at dusk at the Atura Hotel in Prospect. If you are looking for a low key wedding in Sydney this could be your answer.
Colin and Amy had their Ceremony right on Mollymook Beach. A beautiful clean beach on the NSW South Coast. We were not sure if we could carry on after the weather started to close in on us. But in the end everyone agreed to just go ahead and brave the weather. Fortunately I carry some white umbrellas in the car for when rain looks likely. In the end the stormy skies were a blessing, as you can see we ended up getting a rainbow!
Lynette and Lee had their private ceremony and the Mormon Temple in Carlingford. The grounds of the temple are beautifully kept by a team of gardeners and was one of the most calming places I have been in a long time.
After makeing the most of the location we headed to Oatlands house and shot within the rose garden. The fountain was especially good when we used flashes to add some extra sparkle.
Dee and Chad chose Summer Hill Church for their ceremony. I would recommend this service to anyone with a good sense of humour, The minister was witty and sincere throughout the proceedings.
After the formal photos on location at thr church we headed to http://clarencehouseweddings.com.au/ and partied the night away. The staff at Clarence house were fantastic. Nothing was too hard for them and they were always willing to work with me to get the best results possible.
St Marys Cathedral is amazing and I feel absolutely privileged to be a part of Nate and Annabelle's Christening. The church frowns on flash photography so I was forced to push my two Canon cameras to their limits to get shots which are clean and sharp.
Christening Photography in Sydney
Thomas was Christened at the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Earlwood. We also took some nice relaxed family photos at his home before hand and some after the church.
I said let's celebrate your fantastic curves and make you even more beautiful than you already are. A maternity session should be empowering.
Why is it a good idea to consult with your photographer?
Peter and Joyce wanted a vintage theme for their pre wedding images, they had a local park in mind. I'm familiar with the park and knew that at that time of year it didn't look its best. So I suggested another location still local to the couple, an old decommissioned brick works in Holroyd, Western Sydney. They were so happy they consulted with me and we created some beautiful images together. What value can you put on having your own style and personality captured for the following generations to enjoy? Imagine in 40-50 years sitting the grandkids down and showing them how cool you actually were a long time ago!
Engagement sessions are a great way to announce your wedding, they're also perfect for a slideshow presentation during dinner at your reception. All you need to do is be in love. Leave the rest to me! This session was held at Bicentennial Park in Homebush after consulting with Holly, she said she loves trees and nature, so this seemed like a perfect place. It was pretty busy on the day but my endless hours working on my Photoshop skills has allowed me to remove pesky visitors to be removed from the final images.

Tony proposed on the Ferris Wheel at Sydney's Luna Park. So where else would they go to have their engagement session? We took advantage of the late afternoon light and were in the park as the lights came on. We managed to capture some motion in a few of the photos using my flashes and some long shutter speeds.
John proposed to Danni only a couple of months ago. They approached me for photos to celebrate their love for each other. We headed down to the reserve in the late afternoon to try and get the best light for flattering images. Nurragingy Reserve in Doonside is a great place to have a photoshoot. It has various areas with a different look and feel to them. Also the trees can provide just enough shade which allows me to manipulate the light to my liking. After we got the formal shots finished they stepped into the old blacksmiths hut and we had a bit of fun with some speedlights, lighting the inside and creating a moody backdrop.
Congratulations Danni and John!
When I shot a wedding that had the taxi from https://blackcabcentral.com.au/ I knew right then we had to do a vintage fashion shoot with it. So my model Akira Isola and my stylist Mariya from https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/MTTC and my makeup artist Alexandra from https://www.alexbabicmakeup.com.au/ and I all met at Sydney University for a photo shoot. In keeping with the vintage feel of the shoot I edited in a style reminiscent of colour slide film that was popular during the sixties and 70’s.
Book your own styled shoot now and lets do something equally amazing.
Editorial shoots are where a few of my good friends in the creative industry get together to shoot a set of images using all of our talent and passion. These are the sort of images you can expect when we have an extra few minutes to finesse each shot.
Why does everyone need a Portrait or a Head shot these days?
Social media plays such a major role in communications today. Do you want people to see you looking your best? Do you want your LinkedIn profile to have a professional edge? Maybe you have relatives you don't see often because of distance? Call me today for a consultation and we can discuss why we need to make a beautiful and creative image. We can do it in studio, on location, or even at your own home if that's where you feel most at ease. It's my responsibility to capture and deliver an image that shows the world how awesome you really are.
My promise to you is to have you comfortable in front of any camera after a session with me. I'll teach you the secrets to posing, body position, eye contact, and that confidence those red carpet celebrities use to get those shots you see in magazines.
Models need portfolio photos
I try and do some variation on the theme when doing images for portfolio material. A different angle or edit can change the whole feel of a photograph.
I usually keep it fairly simple with one speedlight but sometimes it's good to get creative with light and let the artistic visions flow.
I was so happy when Miyuki asked me to shoot her maternity photos. She is one of my favourite makeup artists that I work with so it was a real treat to have her and in front of the camera looking gorgeous instead of behind the scenes making other girls look beautiful. It's clearly obvious Yura and Miyuki are so excited to be parents soon.
