Just a few weeks ago on a very warm January day, Elise and Mark became Mr and Mrs. We had the threat of a summer storm which as you will see below managed to hold off for the most beautiful blue skies as the afternoon breeze rolled in.

At one stage while we were on a boat with Elise and Mark’s bridal party, I heard one of Mark’s groomsmen commented “Just look at him. Did you ever see anyone as happy as Mark to be married?” and I have to admit I agreed as Mark and Elise fell into their first day as husband and wife effortlessly. Always looking for each other; she always made sure that he had a cool drink ready and waiting and he was always sure that she was happy and content.

Congratulations Elise and Mark!

If ever there was a Bride who was excited to marry her Groom, it was Nina.  Jason and Nina first met during late 2005 when Jason was the sound designer on the final WAAPA production that Nina was acting in. Nina developed a crush immediately that lasted the entire rehearsal process, but they hadn’t yet spoken. Nina didn’t think she stood much of a chance as she had to perform on a rock in a dripping wet raincoat but it turned out he couldn’t keep his eyes off her either and eventually they began dating and just over 12 months ago, they became husband and wife.

I am so pleased to be able to share their day with you as it is now featured in the current Collectors Edition of Real Weddings magazine. Be sure to grab yourself a copy!

Just before Christmas, Megan got in touch with me to arrange an engagement session. She and Byron had recently become engaged and are planning their wedding for 2017 and they wanted to remember this unique time in their lives. I loved getting to know more about them and how they met and fell in love almost instantaneously and can’t help but smile as I look through their engagement session photos. These guys have an amazing future ahead of them and I hope to get to know them better along the way.

A huge thanks to White Events for connecting us and to Simone Colella for taking such great care of Megan’s flawless makeup for the shoot.

It was about this time last year that we quietly began dreaming a new dream for ourselves. I had mentioned to Grant of a business that was for sale that I thought would be a good fit for us and our family and within 5 months we were the proud new owners of Bride and Groom Events and stretching our entrepreneurial wings further than I could have imagined.

I didn’t know how the year was going to play out as I tried to balance my own wedding photography business and nurture a new business, but we made it. In fact this past year took me back to my first year as a wedding photographer with many late nights and early mornings and a few too many take out meals but I admit I love the early stages of business growth and it fed my soul more than I knew.

As I enter my 7th year as a wedding and lifestyle photographer (I can’t believe I wrote that!!) I am more passionate than ever about photography and eternally grateful to my clients and friends and family who have given me the chance to continue to do what I love. To serve others with a gift that I stumbled across some 10 years ago is the most wonderful blessing that I have been given and I can’t wait to continue to photograph many more weddings, engagements and families in 2016 and beyond.

This coming year will be about being intentional in all I do and finding moments of respite in the busy. Doing what I’ve always done … but better. As I look forward to the new year, I wanted to take a moment and look back over the year that was and all the amazing moments I’ve been invited to witness …

See more Years in Review

2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014

I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful celebration to see out 2015 than Eunice and Sam’s Laurelville Manor wedding last month.

Having been together for 10 years, needless to say their families were very much looking forward to this union. There has never been any doubt in their minds or in those around them that they would get married, it was just a matter of when.

Sam broke with tradition and calmly waited for Eunice to open her eyes one morning while they were away in the south-west. As her eyelids fluttered and she looked into Sam’s smiling face, he slipped the ring on her finger and asked her to fulfil his dreams and allow him to be her husband. Forever.

Congratulations Sam and Eunice!
