Steve + Lauren

October 28th, 2014

Hooking up, picking up, hanging out, dating – scary stuff really, isn’t it?  I know I probably don’t get many single readers here cause, let’s face it, who wants to look at wedding photos when your own wedding seems like a potential distant dream.  So very far away you can’t even imagine it.  But you know, you can meet that person anywhere, anytime.  Tomorrow, you could be walking down the street and BAM – you meet the person of your dreams and start your life together.  If not tomorrow then perhaps the next day, or the next.  If you really think about it, your husband or partner was once a stranger like the people you see on the bus, or at the grocery store, or in the library.  Complete and utter strangers.  The jump from strangers to lovers isn’t really that big if you think about it like that.  All is takes is a spark.  The story of how you fall in love gets crafted over time.  Each time you tell it you both play your parts, say each bit as rehearsed so buy the time your kids are born it is like a fair tale, a story that has its own rhythm, its own cadence, just like your love does.  Lauren is a doctor.  A dermatoloigist to be precise so you can only imagine how many people come up to her with a rash, mole or spot and ask her opinion.  It’s got to be pretty annoying, standing at a bar kicking back when a stranger comes up to you and all of a sudden they are thrusting their finger or leg in your direction asking if they are going to live!!  Occupational hazard?  You bet.  And yet, Steve, he had a rash on his elbow.  From utter strangers, to looking at his elbow to falling in love and now being married.  Seems unlikely?  Yes.  But impossible?  Never.  Love is magical that way.  Strangers to lovers – nothing strange about that.

The boys’ suits are by Michael Innis Menswear.  Smart, sleek – a perfect fit, like Bond.  Martinis anyone?


All of the stunning flowers were by Kate Dawes Flower Design.  She is a master at work and these flowers were no exception!

Jacob + Sarah

October 25th, 2014

The life of the wife of a wedding photographer is a lonely one.  Friday nights, Saturdays, Saturday nights, Sundays – all booked, all with weddings.  I guess it’s a little bit like marrying a sailor – at least in September and October it is!  At least he doesn’t come home smelling all fishy like the sea and often comes home with a slice of that ever magical wedding cake.  So it’s not all bad.  But I guess it lends itself to me working on those days that he is away.  Which is how you find me here, at my keyboard, on a Saturday night.

We met Sarah and Jacob at an open night at our favourite venue, Moda Events Portside.  We had a great chat and I remember thinking that these guys were our people.  You know similar outlook, same sense of fun,, a perfect match.  It wasn’t too long before they came in, met with Jason again and booked us for their photography.

I always get a thrill when our couples book us – it really makes me feel so honoured and happy that they trust us to be there on their wedding day.  It’s a pretty big deal (as you guys all know) and it’s still a pretty big deal for me, all these years later, when each of you book with us.

Sarah and Jacob had been together a little over six years before Jacob proposed in the Margaret River.  Sarah, not one to let a task go on too long, took up the challenge to plan a wedding in only 7 months!!!  Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done because this wedding went off without a hitch.  The only nerves were around the dress, which arrived 3 weeks before the wedding – phew!

Sarah and Jacob also had dance lessons before the wedding (it can be a bit tricky on the day in a wedding dress and heels!)  But it all worked out though and resulted in every guest grooving on the dance floor from the moment they were able!

Thanks again guys for choosing us – it really was a day to remember!

Sarah’s dress was by Stella York, her shoes were Alan Pinkus, the bridesmaids were dressed in Goddess by Nature.  Very romantic in shades of pink to complement the bouquets and flowers by Florabella Design.

The ceremony was held at Newstead House on the river in the rotunda.  It was such a beautiful day!  It was officiated by celebrant Vanessa Linn from Butterfly Ceremonies.

Sarah and Jacob surprised their guests with fireworks at the cake cutting.  The guys are Fireworx are professional fire-heads and can’t get enough of the hot, sparkly stuff so give them a call if you are looking for that WOW factor.  It’s pretty spectacular!
