I got the chance to photograph the “wedding weekend” of Shaun & Taeri at Alila Villas Soori in Bali earlier this year.  Gabe came along to second shoot with me and together we got to experience one of those very special weddings that make this job so great.

Yellow is the colour of sunshine, of joy, happiness, warmth, and nourishment.  It was a perfect selection as the accent colour for Shaun & Taeri’s wedding.   That is exactly how the day felt, joyful, full of sunshine and warmth.  Time with this couple and their families was nourishment for the soul.

This fantastic event with impeccable styling was coordinated by their wedding planner extraordinaire Diana, from One & Only Bali Weddings & Events alongside the team of Bali Event Styling, and Westside who provided that lighting that I know you will all ask about.  Diana brought together such professional suppliers and created a magical setting for a magical couple. Taeri’s hair and makeup was by Yeanne & Team. The flowers by Heliconia Bali. The Cake by Ixora Cakes and the catering for their amazing party by Bali Catering Company.

Shaun & Taeri are a modern couple but they weren’t afraid to mix contemporary styling with traditional touches in reference to their cultural heritages.  For all those couples who want to step away from their cultural traditions at weddings, these guys show you how it is possible to blend the best of both worlds, and create a wedding that represents your own unique histories.

To Taeri, Shaun and your families, thank you for welcoming me into your lives for a weekend, and for entrusting Studio Impressions with the honour of capturing the moment you became husband and wife.

Pre-Wedding Photography – Bali http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/11/taeria-shaun-bali-pre-wedding-shoot/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/11/taeria-shaun-bali-pre-wedding-shoot/#comments Mon, 03 Nov 2014 03:53:05 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=15836 I was recently talking to a non-photographer friend of mine, and mentioned that I had been doing some pre-wedding shoots.  They looked at me strangely & asked “what’s that?”.   Do you mean engagement photos?   It was one of those moments when I realised that not everyone lives and breathes weddings like I do, and many people don’t really understand all the options available to a couple now.     So what is the difference between an engagement shoot and a pre-wedding shoot?

Well the short answer is that a pre-wedding shoot is usually longer than the traditional engagement session and it usually involves a lot more planning, styling, locations and dresses.   Sometimes more suits, but usually just more dresses.   The traditional engagement portrait involves a short portrait session (around 1 hour long), and normally just one location.   It is a great way for a couple to become comfortable in front of the camera.     A pre-wedding shoot, can take 3 hours to a whole day.   On a pre-wedding shoot, I will take the couple to a wide variety of locations and photograph them with many different looks (so lots of dresses).    Doing a pre-wedding shoot is awesome fun.    I love it.  It is a great way to get to know the couple really well, and for them to become comfortable with me taking their photo.   It is also a great way for them to get to spend a fun day together celebrating this big change in their lives, without all the pressures of the wedding day.   Usually the photos are turned into a slideshow played on the wedding day or put on display at the wedding, and the couple get some gorgeous images to remember how they naturally are at this point in their lives.   They can play with styling, props and themes, or they can just use the day to visit and record places special to them.   A lot of couples like to visit beaches, or cafes or restaurants that played a specical part in their story, like their first date, or where she said “I love you”, or where he proposed.  I also love it when we extend the shoot to include one of the pre-wedding celebrations like the rehearsal dinner, because I get to meet family and friends too.   When this happens I always find that I get even better images at the wedding.  I know who is who before the day, but I have also learned a little more about them and can anticipate those touching moments even more easily.     I just know that it is a privilege to get to photograph couples and their families not just at their wedding, but when they are relaxed and simply being themselves.

Here are some of the pre-wedding portraits I photographed for a fantastic couple recently, taken in and around  Alila Villas Soori in Bali.  Hope you love them.

Byron Bay Wedding – Deux Belettes – Felicity & Damien http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/10/deux-belettes-wedding-felicity-damien/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/10/deux-belettes-wedding-felicity-damien/#comments Fri, 10 Oct 2014 04:44:51 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=15664 I swear that Marcus falls in love with every couple he meets.  For as long as he has been photographing weddings, he has come home with stories about how lovely the couple were, usually saying something like they “were the nicest people” or “it was such a beautiful day” and he genuinely means it, every weekend.  This is how I know that he is doing what he was meant to do in life.  He loves the photography, but more than that he loves the people.  Later in the week, I get to see the photos, often over his shoulder late at night as he works through them into the wee morning hours.  That’s when he tells me some more stories from the day and that is when I can tell by the look on his face how much he enjoyed photographing that wedding.  Sometimes, in these moments, he shows me a wedding that is more than just beautiful, it actually moves me, and I am touched by the way he truly sees people.  The images make me laugh, they make me cry, they make me go aaawww, in that way that only girls can.  I’m not a very romantic person.  In our relationship, that person is Marcus.  So when I react like that, I know that the people in this wedding really were “the nicest people”, and they really do have something special.  I can see it in their images.  No, I can feel it.

Felicity & Damien, your wedding has secretly made me cry happy tears, laugh out loud and smile a great big happy smile.  The way you look at each other, the way that you laugh with your friends, the strength of the touch from your parents, how you make fun of yourselves, and the way you included Lola the french bulldog in your day – it all represents something remarkable.  Cherish what you have for it is precious indeed.

Felicity and Damien were married at the gorgeous Deux Belettes in Byron Bay.  He wore impeccable Wil Valour and she was a vision in DARB Bridal Couture.  Damien used to drive racing cars professionally, and now works for V8 Supercars, where he met Felicity.  Their love of racing cars making subtle appearances in their wedding.  If you look closely you will notice the flowers on the tables aren’t housed in ordinary vases – what better way to use your racing trophies – flower vessels on your wedding day.

Felicity and Damien, thank you for choosing Studio Impressions to share your wedding day.  Marcus & I would wish you a love that lasts forever, except that it is obvious – you already have it.

Lake Como Italy Wedding Villa del Balbianello- Laura & Jehan http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/09/lake-como-italy-wedding-villa-del-balbianello-hotel-grand-tremezzo-laura-jehan/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/09/lake-como-italy-wedding-villa-del-balbianello-hotel-grand-tremezzo-laura-jehan/#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 23:36:45 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=15580 All weddings are enjoyable.  Honestly they are.  That’s one of the reasons I do what I do.  But some weddings, they are an experience.   The people, the place, the emotion, fills your senses.  Being a photographer becomes the absolute best job in the world.

Truly a couple of the world, Laura & Jehan, who reside in New York City, asked me to photograph their wedding in one of their favourite places, Lake Como, Italy.  Sure, I think I can do that.  I was pretty pleased when I saw where they were getting ready, two epic locations, the impressive  Grand Hotel Tremezzo  and the spectacular  Villa Del Balbianello .  They had the help of local wedding planners  “The Lake Como Wedding Planner“. The team were incredible and made the day magical and smooth sailing.

But the absolute best thing about this wedding was the love between Laura & Jehan and the incredible connections they had with all their family and friends.  I’m not sure that either of them noticed the spectacular views.  They were too busy looking at each other.  See what I mean, filled my senses.

Thank you Laura & Jehan and all your wonderful friends and family, for welcoming me into your lives for a short time, and for giving me and experience to remember.

Sunshine Coast Hinterland Wedding – Laura & Nicholas http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/08/maleny-manor-wedding-laura-nicholas/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/08/maleny-manor-wedding-laura-nicholas/#comments Fri, 22 Aug 2014 06:06:47 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=14113 Some weddings just grab you by the heart strings and pull tight.   This is one of them.   There’s something about the simplicity of Laura & Nicholas’ Maleny Manor wedding.  Maybe it was just something about the way they looked at each other all day.    Or maybe it was they way they touched each other slightly, gently, often.   Or maybe it was all these things combined.   Whatever it was it reminds me what a wedding is all about.  What love is all about.  How good it feels.

Thank you Laura & Nicholas for choosing Studio Impressions to photograph your wedding, for showing with the simplest of gestures how you honestly feel about each other, and letting our very talented (and a little sentimental) Adam Finch capture it in these images.       (Laura’s dress was by Maggie Sottero  and those gorgeous flowers Mondo Floral Designs)

Queensland Brides Cover http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/08/queensland-brides-cover/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/08/queensland-brides-cover/#comments Thu, 07 Aug 2014 07:02:13 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=15293 The latest edition of Queensland Brides is on the shelves!  We were super excited to have been asked to shoot the cover, and a special spread on wedding styling put together by a team of experts specially selected by Queensland Brides.   We thought you might like to see some of the behind-the-scenes fun from the shoot.

We were lucky to secure the fantastic  Gallery of Modern Art and even luckier to have them open sections of the Gallery that you don’t usually get to photograph in.   I LOVE this space.  I spend my spare time at this gallery wandering, relaxing, gathering inspiration from the art, from the vision of the artists and from the beauty of the space.   I love photographing weddings here and I absolutely loved doing this shoot of the gorgeous Michaela from Vivien’s Model Management.

 Helena Couture Designs/ were responsible for the amazing gowns Michaela wore and the fantastic Kim Snare provided hair & makeup.  Queensland Brides is featuring some pretty amazing styling in this edition and this shoot was put together by one of the best stylists around, Brendan from  Styled Events. Valiant Hire provided the chair featured on the cover and Nicole at  Stem Design worked her usual floral magic. The cool place cards, menus – Cara Marie from Invitation Station/Cara Marie Designs.

Aurelie & I had a great time working with everyone and doing something special for the team at Queensland Brides.  Thanks Heaps QB!

Brisbane City Hall Wedding – Madeleine & Will http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/08/brisbane-city-hall-wedding-madeleine-will/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/08/brisbane-city-hall-wedding-madeleine-will/#comments Fri, 01 Aug 2014 00:32:34 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=15228 What do you do when you have so many close friends and can’t choose who should be a bridesmaid?    Do what the beautiful Madeleine did.  Don’t have any bridesmaids, instead invite all your friends to your  Stamford Plaza hotel room to be with you while you get ready for your big day.   What a great idea.  Share that special time before you are married with all the people you have shared being single with.

I loved this idea because it was not only a great way to honor the special part that girlfriends play in a bride’s life, it also meant that Will and Madeleine’s wedding ceremony (at Brisbane City Hall) became all about just them.   This couple and their future life together.   A simple statement of the strength of being two.

Gabe did a fantastic job of capturing the feel of Madeleine & Will’s wedding, especially the relaxed atmosphere of their  Moda reception.   I know he had the best time photographing them too.   Nothing is nicer than being part of the wedding day of really nice people who are really honestly in love.

Madeleine & Will, thank you for choosing Studio Impressions. May your love grow stronger every day.

Eumundi Wedding – Sarah & Simon http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/07/eumundi-wedding-sarah-simon/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/07/eumundi-wedding-sarah-simon/#comments Wed, 23 Jul 2014 00:44:41 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=15259 I love people that don’t take themselves too seriously.   Sarah & Simon are those kind of people. They know how to have a good laugh and they know how to just be.    When I saw the images from their wedding I couldn’t help but spend ages chatting to Aurelie (who took these great shots) about their day.   Her face lit up as she told me more and more about how lovely everything was, and how their sense of humor was sprinkled through the day.

Sarah and Simon had a picnic wedding at  Eumundi’s Hidden Valley.  Just a few friends and family sharing rustic food on a glorious day in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.  The team at Style Le Aisle added a few touches to make sure this was no ordinary picnic.  The atmosphere was set with perfection and it was as relaxed and beautiful as they had clearly planned.

You might notice that Sarah & Simon share a distinctive feature.  But, as the funny guy Tim Minchin sings “only a ginger can call another ginger, ginger” - so I’ll leave you to work it out.     I loved how they had fun with it and used it in their wedding theme!   Gingerbread men wedding gifts – I LOVE IT!  The (ginger) best man and Simon’s brother got in on the act, adding ginger beer & ginger nut biscuits to the mix.   Not to be outdone, the Maid of Honour produced a drawing that Sarah had done in school of her “dream man”.   Don’t worry Sarah we have not shared the evidence here, but we have shared a photo of Simon’s priceless reaction.

Sarah & Simon, you clearly have long term friends and family who love you and enjoy your company very very much.    Having met you, we know why.    Aurelie obviously loved every second photographing your wedding and raves about what a great day it was.     I think you must have sprinkled a little bit of ginger dust here in Studio Impressions – because we can’t stop smiling or laughing too.     Thank you for choosing us to picnic with.

Sydney Wedding – Samantha & Josh http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/07/sydney-wedding-samantha-josh/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/07/sydney-wedding-samantha-josh/#comments Wed, 09 Jul 2014 23:54:12 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=15307 I can’t believe we are half way through the year already.   I feel like a poor parent when it comes to our little blog here at the moment.  We’ve haven’t even published most of the amazing weddings from last year let yet alone the pretty epic ones we’ve already photographed this year.  We’ve been very lucky the past few months flying to all corners of the globe to capture the special memories of some special people.  When our blog posts get a little slow, you can follow us through the Studio Impressions facebook, instagram and twitter posts.     So fresh from Bali this morning I wanted to share one of my faves so far.

Earlier this year I had the great pleasure of being invited to photograph the wedding of Samantha and Josh – two fantastic people.

Their beautiful jewish wedding was held at Hemmesphere at the Establishment Hotel in Sydney which is an awesome venue, made even more awesome by the talents of  Philip Carr & Associates who were responsible for some of the most amazing styling.    The flowers & balloons brought just a little romance and whimsy to what was an all out classy affair.

What I loved most about this wedding though, was the thing that always gets me;  the people.   Samantha & Josh are great people and you can see why when you meet their families.  Plus they know how to party!   I felt very honored to be part of it all.

Samantha & Josh may you always have this much fun, love and joy in your lives.  Thanks for choosing me and Studio Impressions to photograph your wedding.

Styled Shoot – New York Glam http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/05/styled-shoot-new-york-glam/ http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/2014/05/styled-shoot-new-york-glam/#comments Tue, 27 May 2014 09:20:46 +0000 http://www.studioimpressions.com.au/blog/?p=14732 Preparing tonight to shoot a very special styled shoot for a future edition of Queensland Brides Magazine.  It reminded me of the craziness of our last shoot.  I don’t usually tell my behind the scenes secrets, but sometimes when you look at the images, you just think, I cannot believe we did it!  So I thought this time I would share.    It was an awesome day on this shoot, but the weather that day was not our friend.     We got together with the amazing style team of Brendan at  Styled Events and Cara from  Cara Marie Designs coupled with the magic of Stem Design  and some of our favourite suppliers and created a glamorous rooftop evening reminiscent of a night out in New York all here in Brisbane.   We found the perfect venue, on top of the exclusive rooftop of newly constructed  Ecco Apartments  in West End with an amazing view of our gorgeous city.   We had the pool, we had the sunset, we had it all – including the wind.   THE WIND.  Oh the wind.

The fabulous Julie Whitehead from Julie Whitehead Cakes: had just finished creating a masterpiece of chocolate deliciousness with the most intricate hand coloured flowers I have ever seen and I spent most of the shoot worrying that the wind would blow the whole thing into the pool!   In the end I had Penny lay on the ground & hold the cake from underneath until I got the shot.

The fabulous  RUSH Entertainment attended to add more glamour to our recreated rooftop wedding and just before they took their place in front of the huge backdrop of the new york skyline that Styled Events had created (perfect for our low down jazz night) a big gust of wind smashed the whole thing to the floor.   So, RUSH, as they always do, just played somewhere else – still looking glamorous.

Our models looked just stunning but poor George Wu had fun trying to find the right dress to work with the wind.  Luckily he is the most good humoured person you will ever meet!   And Kim Snare had her work cut our for her keeping that gorgeous main of red hair in place.  Our male model was the only one really comfortable in his  Wil Valor suits.

Luckily Aria Catering came along for the night – because you can’t have a glamorous rooftop wedding without the ULTIMATE sophisticated food – and provided sustenance for our models and the wonderful people that became our guests for the night.  They also created a very special cocktail just for our Manhattan wedding.   What a fantastic idea for any wedding – your own signature cocktail.   Had we known we would have called this one “Gone with the Wind”.

It just goes to show that even the best laid plans don’t always work out, but you can still have fun, and if you are working with professionals, it can still be AMAZING!

Gabe & I had plenty of fun shooting this one together.   We got to try out some of my favourite lenses, new angles and some new skills shooting in high winds in a small space & a big drop over the side!.    It was great to use the 200mm f2 and the 85mm f1.4 with the Nikon D800E.  Don’t get to use 200mm f2 as much as I’d like.

Funnily enough, I am actually looking forward to the next one.!
