It’s all in the details

OK, so as I was thinking about what I could focus on Facebook for this month, I thought a lot about what makes up a wedding day, and one that really sticks out is the care and attention to all the finer details of the wedding day. I remember planning for my own, and I was quite meticulous about every last little detail, from the ribbon threaded pearls on the invitation, to the girls shoes, the chair covers and colour of the boys ties, the list goes on and on. Bride’s, the mum’s (and some groom’s) spend hours sweating over all these seemingly small parts of the day, but when they all come together perfectly it really can be just stunning!
Personally, I always think it is a bit of a shame that often the bride and groom don’t get to see how all the details in the reception come together, before their guest’s go in and put all of them selves in the room. For this reason, Laura & I like to take lots of photos of the room setup, every little detail, before the guests go in and pull it all apart!!

So for this month, I will be showing some awesome ideas I have come across recently, in the hope it may give some of you some inspiration, or maybe just a chance to reminisce about the time when you were up at night, picturing how every piece of the your day would come together. Cause for us girls, I think it is all about the details!

  

The joy in her laugh

When I introduce to a new person, that I am a wedding photographer, the first question invariably makes mention of the ever dreaded Bridezilla! I came across fragments of this kind of bride from time to time in my early days of shooting, but I am very thankful that today I never get to meet “her”. In fact it is quite the opposite.
I am very frank & open about who I want to work with, easy going, like minded couples, and so I feel like the luckiest wedding photographer in the world, as the brides I get to work with are full of joy, laughter & are happy to be marrying the man of their dreams! Simply right?

Take Sandra for example, she just owned it from the moment I walked through the door…

So happy, so full of fun & laughter, and it just went on from there.

Just as it should be:)

She just giggled with glee all day, it was so infectious fun to be a part of.

If you are planning for your wedding, and feeling overwhelmed and stressed, just let it go for a small sec, and think about how you will feel on the day. Think about the end goal, and all the hard work will be worth it… And don’t forget to find the joy & have a laugh along the way

  

Focus on Relationships

I have been on a Facebook hiatus, not necessarily by choice, but more because I was not sure how or why I wanted to use this great big loud speaker we call social media. And it is so confusing as a small business owner to know which one to spend time on, what to pour your energy into and for what purpose are you doing it.
I think for a while I thought of it all as an ego stroke, a way to get more people to “like” me and my work, but all for what? I know it is good marketing, but I feel like a lot of fellow photogs are spending a lot of time getting their work onto Facebook, but maybe not enough time servicing clients.
So I have spent the last 12 months, trying to focus on giving awesome service to each of my clients. Sure I fall down, like we all do at times, but I have made it my sole mission to give each client the best experience with me, with quick turnaround and friendly smiley service. This has paid back 1000%, not only are my clients delighted (and spreading the good word) but also it gives me joy as well, win win!
So as I have been travelling along, and thinking how I can energise myself to get back onto the social wagon again, I realised that what I would like to do is share my message and beliefs. So I have come up with a little project, that I think will be interesting for an audience, and a fun challenge for me along the way too!
I have decided to have a focus or intention for each month. A snippet from my world of different things that inspire me to wake up and do what I do every day:)
So for the first month, I think it is only appropriate that I tackle one of the biggies for me… Relationships!
As a wedding photographer, the main part of the day that intrigues, inspires and draws me in, is the celebration of relationships. Of course there is the obvious bond between the bride and the groom, but to me it is the myriad of relationships old and new that are all so present on the day.
And so for this month, I am going to celebrate relationships:)

Personalised Pre Wedding Sessions

I always like to get my couples to try and personalise their pre wedding session. I find that most couples that come to me have never had a photo shoot done together before, and let’s face it, after the wedding, once the little ones come along, a photo session of just you 2 as a couple gets put very far down the must do list!

The images from these sessions are great to use for display at the wedding, signature books, church booklets, slideshows, gifts for parents and so much more. The session is also a valuable experience to know you have made a great decision in your photographer, and lets us get to know what works best for you as a couple, so we can get straight into it on the wedding day, no mucking around.

I have always encouraged my couple to invest as much of themselves and their personalities, quirks, traits & even pets into the planning for their session, so it really is a good reflection of who they are right now. How awesome for your kids (and of course you) to look back and see how cool you really were before they came along to tell you how cool you are not (Oh no really sounding like a mum now!)

So when Kylie called me and asked if we could photograph her and Andrew with their bikes, I said hell yeah. We met at La Perouse and then cruised into the Rocks… great effort & so much fun for me as a photog:)

I LOVE photographing at this time of year

I just love photographing weddings at this time of year. I know some people are deterred as you do potentially face the cold, but more often than not you get lovely crisp days that produce gorgeous lighting and just stunning sunsets – and sunrises – and thank you to all my lovely clients who do not require my attention at that time of the morning… brrr!

Luke & Sharon’s day was full to the top with love and support. You could just feel it in the room. They are very strong and resilient team in their own right, and have a great family unit surrounding them, which I truly believe is the best example and foundation for any newly wed couple.

Warm loving energy + truly stunning weather = Perfect day. As they were saying their vows, the clouds opened up and the sun beamed down on Sharon, and she just glowed. It was quite amazing to watch. Big thanks to all the bridal party. You guys were great, and were great fun to be around on the day.

I have photographed quite a few weddings in this family circle them over the last couple of years, and they are a special bunch. It gives me a lot of joy to see all the lovely couples whose weddings I have captured, and is great to meet a few couples, that I am going to be celebrating with in the future. Kind of feel like part of the family, which is pretty cool, thank you:)
