Manveen's Family Portraits at Wittunga Botanic Garden

I love to capture family portraits for Manveen and her family, and see little Jeevan grow! For this session I met Manveen and her family at the Wittunga Botanic Gardens, a little gem hidden in Blackwood. From bubbles to balloons, ducks, bike rides, games of soccer, cricket and more. It was an afternoon full of fun and laughter! Thanks for having me to capture these memories for you again Manveen! xx

Keziah & John's Country SA Wedding

I believe that South Australia is such a beautiful place. Gorgeous rugged coastlines, amazing wineries and absolutely stunning outback scenery in Country Flinders Ranges. When Keziah and John asked me to photograph their Blinman wedding at the Family's station north of Wilpena Pound I was beyond excited! I love the dusty red earth, rolling Flingers Ranges, dry creek beds, Emus, Roos and beauty of this place.

Anne & Matthew's Spalding Country Wedding

I love South Australia, every single part of it. So when I was asked to photograph a beautiful country wedding in Spalding, I was very excited! Not only did I have the joy of photographing Anne & Matthew's wedding, but I also got to photograph their maternity and newborn portraits for their gorgeous baby girl Gretchen over a year ago. Driving up to Spalding was a delight, with rich greens and amazing yellow canola lining the country side. It was definitely a gorgeous time to visit, and the perfect timing for a wedding!

Jake & Jess' Winter Wedding at Barn1890, McLaren Vale

We have had a very sunny Winter this year! And I really felt like Jake & Jess' wedding day was a great summary of this years winter weather. From overcast skies to brilliant bursts of warm sunshine. Home-baked pies instead of cake, an amazing bride who did so many of the personal touches (including all the pies and florals!) herself, and an adoring and fun loving groom. Jake & Jess' was just a little bit amazing, and the best way to get another busy wedding season rolling.

Megan & Jonathan's Kuitpo Forest Engagement Session

Megan, Jonathan, their gorgeous greyhound Barnsey and I nearly didn’t go ahead with our engagement session plans on Sunday. With a 95% chance of rain, and maybe a thunderstorm, there was a little hesitation as to whether we should brave the elements and potential muddy puddles. But I’m so so glad we did! Despite the ridiculously high chance of rain, I don’t think a single drop touched our heads. Instead, we were blessed with diffused, warm sunshine that glistened off the dewy leaves and pine tree bristles of Kuitpo Forest.

Liz & Dean's Adelaide Hill's Winter Elopement

This was one of those beautiful little elopements where everything felt as though it came together perfectly. And proof that despite the weather, your day can still be every beautiful thing it needs to be. Liz and Dean eloped at the gorgeous Bonney Berg Bed and Breakfast in the Adelaide Hills at Cromer, near Birdwood. Their beautiful host Bron made sure everything ran perfectly, witnessing their wedding, providing delicious meals and such a beautifully welcoming environment with access to their stunning property and grounds. She also let us borrow her floral arrangements to create a lovely, loose and rustic bouquet. I still cannot believe that the flower is a cabbage! How very cool.

Jas & Harry's Winter McLaren Vale Wedding

Winter can be absolutely beautiful, as proof by Jas & Harry's gorgeous McLaren Vale Winter wedding. With the shorter days, the sun never gets so high in the sky that it casts an overly harsh glare. And with wispy clouds leading into an overcast evening, the light became softer as the day progressed. Jas & Harry did their wedding their way, wanting to keep it as relaxed as possible and following only the traditions that meant something to them.

Megan & Andrew's Adelaide Botanic Park Elopement

Megan & Andrew's elopement on Friday was a beautiful and special day. We were a little worried about the weather, keeping a back up plan ready to go just in case. But in the end, the weather was incredibly beautiful. The big Morton Bay Fig trees held special meaning for Megan & Andrew, and also provided the perfect backdrop for the wedding. I love how their huge branches and roots enveloped the ceremony in a sweeping embrace. It did rain, but it was also sunny. This is a magical combination. Guests and family cuddled together under umbrellas as a light shower sprinkled down during the reception, the droplets glowing in the sun.

Nicolette & Daniel's Veale Garden Elopement

Think a wedding can't be planned in 3 weeks? Think again! :) After many years together, Nicolette and Daniel decided it was time to tie the knot, and they didn't want to wait to do it. With life happening all around them, Nicolette completing her Phd, and a move to Singapore imminent, they made time to commit to a life spent together, and a cherished little elopement in the Adelaide Veale Gardens.
