SINGING FOR ITALY

Walking the streets of Venice I stumbled across these vibrant Italian women singing their hearts out. What I love about this photo is not so much the lady belting her song out but the lone man in the group silently sitting at the end of the table probably thinking “We go out for one drink and here we go again. Every single time. Let me check the football score…”.

FROM ITALY WITH LOVE

I flew to Italy to photography the wedding of the gorgeous Clare and Luca in amongst the vineyards in the prosecco region outside Venice at the venue Locanda La Condola in Soligo. Here’s one of the happy couple yesterday. Stay tuned for more!

ITALY - SARDINIA

I’m here in Italy to shoot a wedding in the Prosecco region at a beautiful place called Locanda La Candola but I thought I would check out a few places before. People always make for a more interesting subject… not surprising I’m a wedding photographer then. This is a shot of Foxxi Manna on the east coast of Sardinia.

Port Douglas

Standing in the lowering sunset among the sugar cane fields in Port Douglas has got to be one of the most beautiful and serene places on this earth. What a privilege to capture Brad and Elke's wedding this weekend.

MEOWIE LOVE

So I photographed the most beautiful elopement today. I mean... totally beautiful and I was just thinking to myself "Gee (yes, I am American in my head), this can't get any better" and then a CAT ran out through the grass and Ness picked her up and gave her a hug and pretty much the world imploded in my head.

SHEDS ARE GREAT

Thank you Isobel + Harry for coming and hanging in a shed with me this weekend. Even though you got married in a beautiful church, sheds rock too.

LOCATION SCOUTING

Location scouting in Avalon this weekend for one of my couples this year! What a slice of heaven! Surely someone can spare a boat down there for little me...

LOOK WHERE YOU CAME FROM...

I had a wedding on the weekend and I decided to walk to where the bride was getting ready. I'm so glad I did because if I hadn't I wouldn't have been able to see the morning sun like this. I know we should always look forwards, but sometimes its fun to turn around and see where you've come from. Happy Monday everyone!

EXCITEMENT LEVELS ARE HIGH..

For every wedding I do, I do the same thing. I go beforehand and I check out the venue and I introduce myself. Every time. Even for weddings overseas. It's very important to me to be that I am organised and planned. Today I went to go check out the ceremony venue for the wedding I am shooting next weekend and I got to meet the Priest and to go to the soup kitchen next door where they offered me a meal and an opportunity to eat with people in the local community who aren't as lucky as you and I. I had a brilliant day and I can't wait to shoot in this beautiful Greek Orthodox church next weekend.

WE SURVIVED!

Anyone knows me knows how much I love animals... except snakes. So high fives all round for us coming out of this plantation not seeing one snake because in my head there were one million snakes in there all whispering my name... Congratulations Mark and Lou. Yesterday's wedding in St. Albans was purrrfect!

Let there be light (and shadows!)

Today I had a really fun engagement session with Jess and Nick. I love everything about this shot - the light play, their expressions, the movement in her hair and dress, the light, the shadows, the shapes, the signs... This is exactly what engagement sessions should be - let's hang and get to know each other and just have some fun!

SURF CHECK

Today I combined two of my favourite things - wedding photography and a surf check. Magic! A perfect moment between Laura and Scott and a fun little right in the background that I'm going to try and get on tomorrow afternoon!

The Deckhouse - Woolwich

Congratulations Susan and Andrew! Two of the kindest souls. Your families welcomed us in as if we were a part of the family. It was so much fun. Thank you for being so wonderful!

Time Flies...

I was blown away this week when I realised it had been two years since Nina and Brad's wedding. Congratulations! What a day! News of how great this day was travelled so far that even the horses came to play...
