Sophie + Grant | Millbrook Winery Wedding | Jarrahdale and Perth

the wedding…

As I sit and think about how I would like to describe this wedding it occurs to me that one of the reasons I love it so much is the way the love and adoration that Sophie and Grant have for each other is communicated with so few words. Stand near them and watch for a moment and you will see so many little ways that their loves shines through; the way he looks at her as her father escorts her down the aisle, the soft touch between them, a casual glance that sends them both into laughter and a softness when they embrace that melts the heart. There is a calmness and sense that all is right with the world when they are together and truly I hope that this comes through in the photos.

As I photographed them I was mesmerised by the awesome light Mother Nature suppled for their wedding day but as I proofed the images I noticed an even more amazing light that shines through their love. Millbrook as the wedding venue was perfect as always and Sophie’s choices in details accented beautifully without detracting from the celebration itself, a simple and understated ceremony steeped with thought and purpose. Sophie and Grant put together an amazing team and having Jay Walsh as their celebrant was the perfect choice. As always he was a joy to work with.

I have so much I would love to say about this wedding but I will adopt a less is more approach and let the images speak for themselves… I hope you enjoy!

the wedding…

One of the coolest things that happens for us as wedding photographers is when we receive an enquiry from couples that were in the bridal party of weddings that we shot. We met Hannah and Brian just under two years ago at Jonathan and Danielle’s wonderful wedding at Joondalup Resort, one of the funnest we’ve shot. When they decided to book us we were so excited, not only to catch up with some of our wedding family but because these guys are two of the most kind-hearted and easy-going couples we’ve ever had the privilege to work with.

It is no coincidence that both their engagement shoot and wedding are some of my favourite work. The couple are a dream to photograph losing themselves in the moments and allowing us to simply capture on the digital medium how wonderfully connected they are. Hannah has such a sense of classical style and she oozes a timeless beauty that the camera just loves. Add to that the calming nature the bridal party added to the day with their laughter and joyful celebrations and how could be anything but amazing?

I simply adore this wedding and the collection of images we produced from it. I could go on and on about how much I appreciate this couple and their faith and support but I much prefer to let the photos speak for themselves… I hope you enjoy!

Vanessa & Shane | Perth Wedding Photography | Backyard with Style

the wedding…

As I recover from a food hangover from Thanksgiving (one of my fave American holidays) I sit and ponder life and its highways and the twists, turns and connections that bring amazing surprises to your world. Vanessa & Shane fall into this category. As a wedding photographer each of your weddings becomes part of your “wedding family” and some drift off into the future and paths never cross again. Others come dancing back into your world and the family expands to let in another couple and their amazing story. Aaron and Renae were one of our early couples and were one of the funnest weddings and couples that we’d ever photographed. The day had it all, even a magician!

Roll forward many years and we receive an email from Vanessa who had been at that wedding and wanted us to photograph her and Shane’s wedding. One of the things that we take pride in is having impressed the guests enough that they remember us and want us to be a part of their wedding day, it truly humbles us! As excited as that was when she told us more about the day I almost got giddy. Picture it: back yard, an old rusty truck, live acoustic music and dancing under the stars! Utter perfection.

Shane and Vanessa are easy going, quick to laugh, giving and compassionate… so genuine that you feel like you’ve known them forever. It is no wonder ALL of their guests were laughing, hugging and celebrating with them… the wedding was simply an extension of who they are as people. It is one of my favourite weddings we’ve ever photographed. I adored the intimacy of the occasion and being able to tell their story. As I try to express what it means to me to capture these images for them it occurs to me that Vanessa actually did it for me and I hope she doesn’t mind me sharing this text: “Thank you soo much for making our dreams come true… Out of this world and memories that we will always cherish, as well as our girls.”

Each wedding I try to express what it is that Marty and I try to do with our photography without sounding trite or cliché. It’s not just a business. It’s not just photographs. And while it’s not saving lives or changing the world we do hope that it makes a difference to our couples and they have something special that they can reflect upon, share with their closest family and friends, turn to when they want to smile and ultimately hand down to their children.

These are our stories and as we increasingly “chat” through bits and bytes I feel they are becoming more important. We don’t write letters anymore. We don’t have living rooms littered with photo albums. We don’t gather our loved ones around for the slideshow of our holidays. But one of the wonderful things about wedding photography is that it is enduring as the storyteller. Weddings like this one remind me of how much I adore those stories. I loved that their girls made the moments random and in doing so adorned the story even more. I loved that the venue was their home and each time they look out to the back yard they will remember the wedding, the laughter and the joy that everyone experienced.

And for Marty and I, we just couldn’t be happier that we have become part of those memories. These are the days to remember… and the stories to be told!

I hope you enjoy guys and welcome to Our Family!

Be warned… it’s a long post! ;)
