2017 has been another awesome year for us and there have been so many wedding photography highlights . I have shot weddings in some of the most scenic places, met some beautiful people, and photographed some amazing moments in their lives. It is such an privilege to photograph every wedding and I am reminded just how special it is every time I witness the vows and when I listen to heartfelt speeches from friends and family.
Over the last year I have photographed weddings in temperatures from zero degrees to forty plus degrees. I have been absolutely soaked to the bone from rain and a lot of times from sweat ;) I have seen wedding rings forgotten, had bridesmaids fainting, weddings with cute puppies and an exotic bird, swords at two different weddings, heard Daryl Braithwaite’s ‘Horses’ way too many times and have dodged a lot of kangaroo, cow and sheep poo while walking through paddocks. I have seen a lot of tears and a lot of laughter and some amazing relationships between couples and their family & friends.
On a personal note our two little girls and puppy are keeping us on our toes. We have a “threenager”… yes that is a three year old that acts like a teenager, and a one year old that is determined to put e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g in her mouth. And our “Fur Child” Beau is as cheeky as ever! But they are so awesome and we are so lucky.
We have been so so happy to see the laws in Australia change to give everyone to right to get married. We totally support marriage equally and I can’t wait to photograph weddings from LGBTQI couples. ?
Thanks to the couples who have trusted me to capture your special day, who climbed over or under fences and walked to places where no one should walk in a pair of high heels. Thanks to the couples who have let any insecurities go, forgot I was there and just let themselves be in the moment. Thanks to the families who have been so welcoming and let me in to photograph these amazing weddings. And thank you to all the wedding vendors, photographers and our past couples who have referred weddings us. It means a lot and is one of the best compliments you can give us :)
So here are some of our personal favourite wedding photography highlights from 2017. I hope you enjoy!
