Big dark scary hail clouds = awesome photos

Dave & Ang were very optimistic when planning their day, outdoor beach wedding… no contingency plan nearby, many would not take the chance, but their gamble paid off by the skin of their teeth, or gust of wind in the right direction:)When we arrived at the beach, I was fearful for poor Dave, as the life guards were telling us of the hailstorm headed our way… eek!
Cue big black rain clouds…140050-0296
But as Ang pulled up, the clouds seemed to detour around us so she could have her dream beach ceremony

And WOW, Tony Blay and I could not believe our luck. Have to say, best lighting I have had to work with outdoors, in… can’t even remember!140050-0340
Stunning backdrops, felt like we were on a remote tropical island somewhere

So moral of the story is, Bride’s to be… behind every dark looming scary cloud there is a possibly awesome wedding photographic opportunity:)

Don’t let it rain on my day

So often, I am asked the question, “What happen’s if it rains?” and my answer is invariably always the same, “YOUR FEET GET WET”. Well I don’t want to be that blunt, and I do always feel for people when the rain falls on their day, but I really think it is down to the professionals then to make the call, and I tend to always choose plan A. May not always be a favourite for it by the bridal party on the day, but by God do I get thanked for it after.

My hats have to go off to Paul, Nicole and their entourage on the day. Everyone really just gave it a go, and when we turned up to Hyde Park, it was just bucketing, no other words for it:)But we persisted on to Martin Place, and we (and maybe like 8 other weddings) stood under the stunning arches that surround the banking centre of the city. I was personally a bit gutted for Paul & Nicole, as we had had similar conditions only months before for their pre shoot, how ever we all hung in, and then we got that magic break, with magic light, and we struck gold:)

The Be-Sides

Each year I put together a calendar for my best friends and I of our kids and our adventures together as “conjoined families”. And somehow every year for the month of December, I manage to find an incredibly tragic and yet terribly funny image of all of us, that I title “Just as we are”. I love this concept in photography and have really tried to develop it over the last couple of years in my wedding photography.

I find so much of what I do and show, is capturing people all dressed up and looking “perfect” and “glamorous” on the day. But there is a much more real element, that sometimes does not always make it to the album, or the best of’s. Sometimes when I catch an off the cuff moment, I have commented to person with a mouth full of sandwich that that one was for the B-Sides, but never really took that idea much further.

So I have decided to take that one step further and shine a light on all those quirky moments, the real stuff that happens in between all the pretty romantic bits on the day!

I want to celebrate all the whacky, crazy, fun loving people. And you can not spend time in the company of Dane & Sheree, and their whole gang with out simply cracking up. Check out all the crazy fun we had…

  

Soulmates

“It is not finding the one you can live with, but the one you can’t live without”

I have heard this said in so many speeches over the years, that often those words don’t resonate with me. But when I was thinking about what really jumped out at me about this special couple, those words just kept dancing around in my head. I felt it when I first met them, I felt it in their home, and it was just electric and plain for everyone on the day to see.

No rain on their day could dampen the true joy they feel in each others company.

And when they spoke to each other, it really was like there was no one else in the room…

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!
