Just before going to the USA, I photographed a wedding in Brisbane that was quite special to me. I had the privilege to photograph Mardi and Rob’s wedding at the International BrookWater Golf course designed by Greg Norman.
What made it so special was that I have photographed Mardi’s children’s weddings in previous years. Through the years I have become their family photographer and have now photographed all of their new grandchildren and all the individual families. It really is lovely to get to see the joyous occassions in families like this.
The wedding was touching – an emotional affair for everyone.
The beautiful surrounds on the course.
To be a part of many of the monumental occasions in this family’s life has been so special. We took a picture of the four of us.
The relationship started back in 2002 when Sonessa & Scott first hired me as the photographer for their wedding on the 12th April 2003. This was when I was using the Canon 30D at the time. A 3mega pixel camera. Cameras now get up to around 21 megapixels! How quickly things change.
The second wedding was Sonessa’s brother Travis, who married Jessica on the 17th September 2005 (below). This time shooting with Canon 1d Mark II.
Things really have changed because I have just finished shooting Mardi & Rob’s wedding on a Nikon D700!
Regardless of the equipment though, these are some of my favourite images because they have given me the chance to get to know this family so well.
