Hannah & Brian | Perth Wedding Photography | Engagement Sneak Peek

engaged…

Ice cream, sunshine, amazing light and a gentle breeze blowing through the long grass…

Summer is on it’s way and there is no better way to feel that than to photograph one of our gorgeous wedding couples! Hannah & Brian wanted an engagement shoot which we will turn into a Guest Signing Book for them to use at their wedding reception. We waited for the rains to leave Perth for our shoot and happened to pick an amazing day. The Rockingham foreshore was chosen as it’s an important area for both of them and even with the hoards of people that turned out to bask in the sun it was a perfect choice.

It’s been quiet on the m&m front but I do love having some time off from photography so the creative juices can be re-booted and areas that you know well you manage to see in a completely different light than before. As wedding season gets underway I’m reminded of how very much I love this job and our clients. We are in awe of the trust you put in us and letting us capture your relationship and celebrations with our own creative flair.

Thanks to you both for being such fun, we can’t wait for the wedding!

a wedding photographer’s wedding | leap of faith

… 3 weeks and counting

I’ve never understood the concept of “cold feet” but I’ve never doubted its existence or reality for those that experience it. I understand it even less with my wedding peering over the horizon, grinning its big grin at me! With every moment that passes, and the number lessening of the days before I become mrs. m&m, I find myself struggling to restrain the GIANT cheshire cat-like grin that resides on my face. All I can think about is how my heart swells with pride at the mere thought of Marty (the martaay) being my husband. My chest wants to explode it feels so warmly filled with love and admiration for this man!

And so, with 3 weeks to go until the day, I post of the “leap of faith” that I so eagerly await. Faith, staunchly believing without tangible evidence, doesn’t seem the right term. Confirmation comes every day with the little things, and I thank him for every one. There is nothing, and nobody, that is perfect on this planet. And there are days where we ponder how to strangle the other without a prison term to follow… but then we laugh, hold hands and head back to our journey knowing we love each even more. This is what I treasure, the leap of faith is believing… knowing… that your someone loves you just as much as you love them, through everything. And so, here is to the leap of faith that is our wedding day… 3 weeks and counting.

Asche & Shaun | Perth Wedding Photography

… the wedding

Some weddings are a whirlwind! The booking comes in only weeks before the event, getting to know the couple is a blur and becoming familiar with their style has to happen in a blink. It always amazes me how these weddings seem to be some of my favourites. When Asche & Shaun came to meet me I knew it would be a GREAT wedding and that they would be a blast to photograph. They didn’t disappoint!

Their path in finding me seemed almost destined and once we met it seemed like a perfect fit. I hope I didn’t disappoint them as I truly feel like it was an honour to be part of their wedding day!

Watching Asche's dad walk her down the aisle was really sweet, I was so caught up in it I nearly forgot to photograph it! ;)

My favourite photo from the day... it was hard to pick, but I just love the simplicity of this one!

Special thanks must go to the person who referred this wedding to me… thanks for your trust in me! Another Thanks goes to Suzs who was faithful assistant on the day as my beautiful Martaay was working away and couldn’t second shoot. Thanks for being there and for making me see some things I would have missed!

This was going to be a short post, but I struggled to pick fewer photos. I wanted to show a LOT more! Thanks for having so much fun on the day. You are truly a stunning couple, and you photograph ok too! ;)

Huge hugs to you both and can’t wait to see you!
