Maria & David

He surfs, he cooks and his mums owns a rural property near the Tweed Coast, plus he’s pretty good looking.  Or so my wife said when she saw these images.  Well actually she just raised her eyebrows in that way that says “Heeellloooo” and I knew.   There is just no competing with some guys is there?    Maria knew that and now, sorry ladies, David is her husband. David and Maria’s wedding was so personal in so many ways.   You can see they […]

Susie & Nicholas’ Noosa Nuptials

Sometimes, in my job, you just get swept away by it all….. a beautiful setting, tender details, heartwarming music, and palpable love.   It’s like waves washing over you, leaving you feeling invigorated, refreshed.   Sometimes, you get swept away by it all….literally.

Ruffles and tulle and swirly dresses, isn’t this what every little girl imagines her wedding dress to be?   Princess for a day.  The Cinderella fairytale kind of princess, of course, not the kind prominent in more contemporary stories. Well at Rebecca and Robert’s wedding, I felt like I was photographing a princess, a sophisticated modern day princess.    Brad from Darb created a dress for Rebecca straight out of a fairytale.  She looked breathtaking.    I couldn’t help also catching […]

Clare & Jon’s Cedar Creek Wedding

“She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellow’d to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies.” Sometimes the love I see on a wedding day can’t be adequately described by me.   A little from Lord Byron’s “She Walks in Beauty” seems a lot more fitting for Clare and Jon.   Just look at the images.  You’ll know […]
