July. Seriously!? The past 6 months have passed in the blink of an eye which is no doubt due to a huge new project Grant and I ventured into recently in purchasing another business. With the combination of wrapping up the wedding season and the purchase of a business its meant sleepless nights, 18 hours work days and lots of take away over the past 4 months as we make plans for the future (on a side note, you know you get too much take out when your 18 year old son starts to complain about it!)

I admit I love the early stages of business and this entire process has made me realise that I am a workaholic. I just love making plans, putting in place procedures and methods that have us working hard in the short term to make the business work harder in the long term but it has been a big learning curve for me. I know that a balance between work and life is more important than ever and I’m looking forward to taking a step back soon to reflect on what we’ve accomplished and taking a deep breath.

Before that happens though I have one more event on my calendar that I am excited for which is the Sandalford Open Day this Sunday, 5th July. After being chained to my office for weeks I’m looking forward to a beautiful day in the Swan Valley (we have the sun scheduled to come out) and I’d love to see you and chat about your wedding day. I have a special offer for bookings made as a result of the open day so send me an email or come and see me on the day for more information. I hope to see you there!

A couple of weeks ago I spent a beautiful winters day at South Beach with Sarah and Matthew for their engagement session. We spoke of our love for Broome where Sarah and Matthew had lived for a while, the country and unseasonally warm winter days like the one we were blessed with on this particular day.

Having first met at a New Years Eve party some 8 years ago, Sarah and Matthew’s love blossomed over their love of food and the outdoors. Matt wisely took advantage of his skills as a chef to cook Sarah a delicious meal at home and she was won over.

I am so looking forward to Matt and Sarah’s wedding at The Old Brewery next year and to spend even more time with them both but for now, here is their engagement!

I was thrilled when I heard that Amy and Cam were expecting and even more so when no sooner had they announced their pregnancy that Amy got in touch with me for newborn photography for their expected bundle of joy. You may remember this amazing couple from their wedding at Alverstoke Barn. Amy has such a solid understanding of what her style is which I saw at their wedding and when I walked into their home I was blown away by how she had decorated their new family home. I think you’ll agree that their baby boy, Pacey will be growing up in style and a whole lot of love.

It was within the walls of the University of WA that Natasha and Joshua first met and last month it was where they celebrated their marriage. Some 7 years ago, Natasha was an undergraduate at the Law School and after seeing each other at a few UWA functions Joshua officially asked Natasha on a date. Not long afterwards he would bring her a coffee to each lecture and they were officially Natasha and Joshua, a couple.

Natasha contacted me last year to photograph her wedding at St Hildas (incidentally her best friend retained me for her own wedding the day afterwards). With what was officially my last wedding of the season, we ended up with a beautiful crisp autumn day with bursts of colour at every turn and having already spent time with Natasha at her friend Nina’s wedding last December (which is being published soon!) and it truly felt like I was spending time with friends.

Natasha and Josh – I hope you had an incredible honeymoon in Italy and Greece! Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your day! #timeline #bestcoupleever

On a crisp autumn morning, I was fortunate to be welcomed into Julie and Andry’s family as they became husband and wife. With another more formal wedding taking place in Indonesia shortly where they will be living, this was the chance for them to have their smaller wedding in what they consider to be their hometown where they studied and where they met.

It was when Julie needed a little tutoring that a friend suggested Andry and as they say, the rest is history. They have now been a couple for over 5 years and at the beginning of this month they were married in front of the family and friends at St Josephs in Subiaco followed by a lunchtime reception at Sandalford. We had the most beautiful morning light as Julie was getting ready and then the clouds rolled in to give us the perfect light for their portraits. We couldn’t have asked for more!

Julie and Andry – Thank you so much for inviting me into your lives! I hope you’ve been enjoying your honeymoon and that we’ll see you back in Perth one day soon! x
