It was a very sticky 40 degrees in Broke, Hunter Valley, for this gorgeous wedding. I promised Merissa and Ian, that the humidity and heat were being well compensated by the dramatic skies that were going to enhance their photos. I think you will agree!
Below is a heartwarming message I received on Facebook over the weekend that I’d love for you to see.

A year ago today you shot our wedding for us… and 4 days later we left on our honeymoon around the world. We´re still honeymooning, at the moment we´re in the Amazon Jungle.
I haven’t had a chance to blog any images of Rachael and Gavin’s wedding but this morning I received a link to some video highlights of the shoot from Joel of Afterglow Wedding Films and was blown away – what a talent!
I was so excited about photographing this wedding that I rocked up an hour early and gave everyone (especially hairdressers) a fright! However, finding Ben and the boys wondering the Sebel Kirkton Park with a megaphone was well worth an early start.
Belinda and Scott are mad about “Walt Disney’ and ‘food and wine’. This striking combination made for a very romantic wedding.
The Hunter Valley Gardens was the perfect place to capture the ‘fairytale affair’ with the gardens giving us colour and fun, on this very hot day (thank god for the golf buggies). Belinda had to have a moment on the way into the church to lift her veil and get some air.
This is the most difficult blog I have written – I messed up at the one wedding that I really, really, wanted to be perfect. I was actually looking for a table to hide under at the reception and in hindsight I should have taken action.
Corey and I have been working together years now and when he asked me to photograph his marriage to Lauren I felt excited, happy and daunted all at the same time. Not only is Corey a shit-hot wedding photographer, he’s a good friend and there is always added pressure in situations like these.
Tim and Rae’s wedding was a simple, no – fuss event, that screamed elegance and romance. Beautiful soft pastel tones complimented a touch of old world vintage glamour
Have you ever seen an episode of Australia’s next top model – this wedding felt like I was on set and shooting the winner. There was emotion, there was tears and there was a gorgeous, gorgeous bride.
Shot in a completely candid style, Jes and Michael’s wedding was the embodiment of creativity and fun. For those who know Jes, know that her amazing creativity is boundless and that everything Jes touches has her signature style.
When Kyra and Mark booked me to photograph their wedding I had the feeling that this was a day that had been planned and dreamed about since Kyra was a little girl. Not only were the two of them excited about the prospect of a “perfect wedding,” Kyra’s dad Kerry was every bit as passionate about making everything just right.
When Corey dropped off the image files for Allan and Jo’s wedding late last month he was excitedly telling all of us at the studio about what a great day and a great wedding this was and how much everyone enjoyed the celebration.
This was one rock’n wedding. Styled with 50’s skirts, polka dots, fabulous red shoes, cadilacs and admission tickets – a Premier Wedding not to be missed!
Sydney locations are second to none when it comes to photos and Amanda and Troy picked some spectacular places to celebrate their wedding. From the guys pad in Manly, the beautiful Mosman property where the girls made their preparations, the stunning North Sydney church and Gunners Barracks for the reception – anyone would have been able to capture some great photos.
Leaves and Fishes in the Hunter Valley is fast becoming a signature venue for beautiful, stylish weddings and this day was no exception. A wonderful fusion of natural setting, fabulous food and incredible service, has this venue as one of the most desirable in the Hunter.
I just received a beautiful note from Pat and Jen, whose wedding I photographed recently and I just have to share it. To…
When a couple love and value photography as much as I do it sure makes shooting a whole lot of fun. It’s pretty easy to see from the images below that Emily was happy to “work it” for the camera and looked simply stunning in her Kel-Leigh Couture gown. The girls made their preparations at an amazing retreat not far from Bowral in the Southern Highlands on what was shaping up to be a very wet day. With locations, a gown and gorgeous bride like this however, who needs the outdoors!
I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again – how lucky am I to have the job I have! I’m pretty sure I had as many laughs at Nicole and Beanie’s wedding as the groomsmen which is pretty difficult if you have ever met these guys.
Emma and Chris completely fell in love with Robert’s when they were in the Hunter looking for a venue and I have to say I never tire of shooting there.
What a beautiful little wedding this was. Cherry and Rod have a lovely story of how they met, their travels and a gorgeous baby girl – and now they are married. The wedding was a ‘secret’ affair that took place on the large balcony of a magnificent Star Of The Sea Apartment overlooking Terrigal Haven on a blue sky day.
I was a little nervous about this day from the minute I woke up – not for me but for Alicia and Dan. Although the skies were blue, the forecast was for some seriously bad weather that afternoon. I was confident that we were going to get great photos no matter the conditions but if it turned as bad as predicted the guys would not be arriving by boat to the ceremony, the ceremony would have to be moved from the lake side gardens to indoors and there were limited areas for photography afterwards. Nothing to do but wait.
