Yarra Valley wedding photographer, Zonzo, Carla and Dave

Here is a small sneak peek of Carla and Dave’s wedding in the Yarra Valley, at Zonzo.

Carla and Dave’s wedding was all about their family and friends. The married couples savoured every single minute with the guests and their attitude made the day completely stress-free!

I have never seen a couple so calm and relaxed and just in the moment.

Carla and Dave made sure they had some images taken before the reception started and planned a one hour photo-shoot around the beautiful estate with the bridal party.

Soon the full wedding will be uploaded:)

In the meanwhile, enjoy these images!

 

Mornington Peninsula Wedding photographer, golden hour at Stillwater at Crittenden

Stephanie & Justin

Golden hour, and more specifically the last 10 minutes of golden hour, is by far my favorite moment to photograph the newly married couple. For those of you who are not into photography, golden hour is sunset time. It’s also called magical hour because of the pinkish shade and golden tones that are present in all the images. The soft light makes all facial features pretty and warm.. in other words it’s the most romantic time of the day!

That is why at the beginning of every wedding day I always ask the bride and the groom if they would like me to tell them when golden hour strikes. You don’t need a full hour to get those magical pictures. 10 minutes are more than enough.

I love when the couple decides to take those minutes for themselves and enjoy their first sunset as a married couple.

These images are a true representation of everything I love about my job and golden hour.

Wedding photographer on the Mornington Peninsula – Lindsay and Paul sneak peek

Here is a small sneak peek of Lindsay and Paul ‘s wedding on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.

That day, when I woke up, I realised how dark it was outside. And then I heard the sound of the rain…torrential rain..Melbourne rain..coming down.. I quickly opened the curtains only to find out what I already knew..the weather outside was horrible!!

I knew that Lindsay and Paul had planned their whole wedding outdoors and my heart sank thinking of how they must have felt upon waking up.

But, like a miracle, the sky literally opened up just one hour before their ceremony..I couldn’t have been happier for them!

If you want to know the rest of the story..you will have to wait until my whole album is done..in the meanwhile here is the preview!:)

Sometimes it’s very hard to pick the “best of” images when you love them all so much!

Lindsay and Paul, here is a little preview for you!:)I hope you love these images as much as I do. I can’t wait to show you all of them!

 

 

Mornington Peninsula wedding photographer, The Briars

Hayley and Scott

Hayley and Scott got married on one of the hottest summer day at The Briars. The afternoon was scorching hot and there was no escape from it.. no shade was to be seen..apart from those super cute umbrellas that the bridesmaids were carrying.

The location was a true representation of the couple, laid back, down to earth and outdoorsy. Hayley and Scott picked the venue as they wanted a place that was real and with a barnyard feeling as they both love hiking and being surrounded by nature.

The wedding was simple, lovely and filled with real tender moments.

Scott couldn’t keep his eyes off his bride and whisper “I love you” in her hears throughout the whole photo-shoot… super romantic!
