Matt and Sam's New Years Eve Wedding at Waverley Estate

New Year’s Eve is a time to celebrate the passing of one year and the beginning of another, and what a beautifully symbolic time to celebrate a wedding! The celebration of a relationship transitioning from having not just a partner, but also a husband or a wife. Plus, it’s a big party to boot! Matt and Sam’s wedding was a beautiful celebration right from the start through to the New Years Eve countdown, complete with sparklers and flower petal cannons.

Claudia & Nug's Broken Hill Engagement Portraits

We all remember that record breaking hot day last week, nearly 47 degrees in Adelaide, the hottest day on record since the 30s! Kate and I (the celebrant I work with at Our Wild Love Elopements) decided to keep the record breaking heat going with a road trip to Broken Hill to capture Claudia and Nug’s beautiful wedding day. Prior to this though, we decided to do a a simple little engagement shoot with their beautiful daughter Livy. To keep our energy up for the big day, we decided to keep the session short and indoors.

Erin, Dave, Isla and Sausage Dog Kransky's Natural Family Portraits, Adelaide

After capturing Erin and Dave’s engagement portraits and wedding, I was thrilled to capture some natural memories for them as a family with 2 new members. Their sausage dog kransky came along when they collected their wedding USB, a little more grown up for this session he accompanied their newest family member baby Isla. Who is so adorably cute that even when she was grumbling and teary she looked sweet as a button. We started their family session in their family home, before heading to a nearby park for the perfect combination of indoor and outdoor portraits. Congrats on your beautiful baby girl guys! x

Jen and Dans' Maximillian Wedding in the Adelaide Hills

Jen and Dan’s wedding was beautifully classic but oh so much fun! With their gorgeous fur friend Roxy the flower dog (who ran down the aisle to Roxanne), the beautiful grounds of Maximillians (with vineyards, golf, and views of rolling Adelaide Hills), and a party that knew what to do when Eagle Rock came on. (Plus who could forget all those delicious shots of tequila!) It wasn’t just the amazing company and beautiful look of the wedding that made this day special. It was the loving company, the family and friends that Jen and Dan surrounded themselves with. Along with their beautiful, down to earth and genuinely kind souls.

Jess & Jaiden's Himeji Garden Engagement Portraits

With their wedding coming up early this year, we thought it would be a great time to capture some engagement portraits for Jess and Jaiden at the gorgeous Adelaide Himeji Gardens at the end of last year. The Himeji Gardens really is a hidden gem of Adelaide, if you don’t know it’s there you could just walk straight past it. With a gorgeous little rock garden and calming pool. A lovely place for natural portraits.

A Christmas Message on Being Photographed, and Loving Yourself

I don’t normally write personal/inspirational posts on this blog. (But maybe that should change?) Taking photographs for a living is an interesting thing to do, especially in the wedding industry which can often be vain and have a focus on the details rather than the meaning. Most of my clients and I are on the same page though. Marriage and weddings are beautiful, because of the true meaning behind the celebration; the love and the promise. When I take photographs, I want to capture the meaning, the emotion, the love, the personality, the natural and the real moments shared between people who love each other.

Nikki & Mike's West Beach and Port Adelaide Wedding

The Summer skies so far have been breathtakingly beautiful as stormy overcast days meet the warmth of a building summer. Nikki and Mike’s wedding day was blessed with one of these beautiful skies, the rain managing to hold back and ensure a perfect day. A day that was fun, casual, beachy and relaxed. Mixed with classy and timeless styling, trendy portrait locations around Port Adelaide and lovely people. From getting ready, to walking down the aisle, saying their vows, taking portraits and partying the night away. The entire day was both elegant and fun.
