Emma and Troy did things their way for their wedding… and they totally nailed it. From Troy’s burgundy velvet jacket, to the Dr Seuss readings at the ceremony, to the magician at the end of the night rounding of the festivities, these two created a classy and super fun day. I’m pretty sure they decided to have it on a Monday so we could get the shot of them kissing on a busy intersection too :) Well, maybe that wasn’t the entire reason…  but the photo turned out good! The ceremony was held at the Brisbane Powerhouse and conducted by the inimitable Josh Withers, and the reception was at Malt Dining. For the photoshoot we wandered the Brisbane streets, attracting a few surprised looks and lots of well-wishes. Have a look at how this wedding unfolded below… Look out for comedic magician Mike Tyler blowing a few minds in the last few images. Thanks to these other fine suppliers:

Opportunities to photograph a wedding in the US don’t come up too often, but the opportunity to photograph Toby and Megs’s wedding will only come up once in a lifetime. And they really put on a once in a lifetime event. A stone’s throw from Ludlow, Vermont and just around the corner from the home of two industrious beavers and some guy with a magical hat; surrounded by lush forests, thousands upon thousands of friendly bears, and friends and family from across the world, Tobez and Megs got hitched. Everyone there partook in three days of emotion, love, smiles, tears, general good times and enough Bloody Mary’s to fill Echo Lake twice over. Friends became family, families became family, and everyone present left with enough warm fuzzies to last them until Thanksgiving 2042. Amazing wedding guys, keep those smiles going, your happiness and enthusiasm rubs off on everyone you cross paths with. (Except the bears… the existence of which is still up in the air!)

Sam and Telisha travelled a long way to exchange their vows… all the way from their home in sunny London to the beautiful beaches of Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. They brought a bunch of their friends and family with them too… a happy group of souls intent on making the most of their Australian jaunt, and they started by making the most of this amazing wedding day. With the wedding ceremony at Maison La Plage Grove, and the lunchtime reception at Sails Restaurant, it was a true Noosa affair… even the weather was perfect. Lunchtime receptions are awesome I reckon… we could squeeze in two photoshoots and the light was perfect the entire day. A highlight for me was Sam and Telisha’s ‘first look’ moment… not a dry eye in the house (or Grove, in this case)! Congrats guys, and good luck with your life in London.

The vendors involved on this day were pretty spot on. Eloquent Weddings did all the planning; Mondo Floral Designs took care of all the flowers; Claire from the Beauty Spot did the makeup and Bethany was in charge of the hairdo’s; Ketrina Coffey did a fine job as the celebrant; and Trudy from Love Bird Weddings made sure all the styling fell into place. Oh and the photographer was some guy from Brisbane.

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.
