Emma and Troy are awesome for a number of reasons. One of the many is that they decided to get married on a Monday… shooting a wedding on a Monday was like a breath of fresh air, it was such a cool dynamic. One of the things it allowed us to do was head to the Edward Street intersection at Brisbane City peak hour and get a shot amongst the people crossing the road… it’s a shot that won’t always work on a weekend because there aren’t so many people walking around. I can’t wait to share the rest of this super cool wedding with you, for now I’ll just share this shot that I love.
I just got back from shooting the most epic wedding in New England, up in the North East Corner of the United States. The only thing more beautiful than the forests and lakes we were surrounded by was the huge love on display between Toby and Megs. They didn’t stop grinning the five days we were up in Vermont, it was awesome. I’ll do a proper blog post when I’ve got more of the editing done, but here’s a couple of shots of the loved up couple. Congrats you two, what an amazing time.
Aside from a few phone conversations, the first time I actually met Lindsay and Chris was the day before the wedding, on the balcony of their apartment in the lovely Pinnacles Resort in Airlie Beach. We had a beer, a chat, a laugh … it was like catching up with old buddies. They are two of the most grounded, connected, and just generally awesome people I’ve met, and their wedding the next day was a testament to this. They held it at Villa Botanica, a beautiful wedding venue not far from Airlie that caters solely to weddings, and does a pretty fine job of it…. so on the organisational front everything was well taken care of. Everybody at the wedding was from out of town, with many of Lindsay’s family coming across from Connecticut in America, and Chris’s from all over Australia. Let’s just say on the happiness, smiles and tears front, everything was pretty well taken care of too! It was an amazingly emotional day that I felt honoured to be a part of. Here’s a selection of the wedding photography captured.
The day before Sarah and Dean got married Brisbane got soaked. It was one of the wettest days on record, there were flooded roads, bridges washed away, the works. It was predicted to rain the next day too, so the ceremony venue was moved from a dripping and inaccessible Henzells Chapel to the rustic and lovely Samsonvale Community Hall. Through it all Sarah remained as cool as a cucumber… adopting the age old mantra of the calm and collected, ‘Whatever will be will be’. And when whatever came, whatever was good… really good. Sunshine, smiles, happy family and friends, not a cloud in the sky. A perfect wedding… although I think it could have been pouring with rain the whole day and Sarah and Dean would have been cool with it. Here’s some of the photographs from the day.
Nat and James are getting married in September, and we met up a while back to take some engagement photos. I really enjoyed hanging out with these guys, they are such true and honest people, and it’s really clear how happy they make each other. Betweeen the lovely dreamy light from the sun and their two big smiles, Toohey Forest was pretty well lit that afternoon! I’m super excited to take their wedding photographs later in the year, it’s going to be special.
I photographed Lindsay and Chris’s gorgeous wedding at Villa Botanica in Airlie Beach on Saturday. These lovely people were blessed with a perfect day, and their family and friends that travelled from across Australia and America were rewarded with a mighty fine wedding. I’m excited to more photos from this Anzac Day wedding down the track, but for now these two will have to do! Thanks Lindsay and Chris for a great day, I feel like we’ve been buddies for a lot longer than a week.
Thanks also to Botanica Weddings for putting on such an impeccable show.
