Boy was this wedding hard to create a practical size blog post from ! I wanted to blog twice this many pics ! It was a massive day with so many great opportunities for photographs, romantic ones, funny ones, straight up beautiful ones … it was a very satisfying job to do. Isabelle & Rohan’s day was quite magical on so many levels … a poignant ceremony, incredible weather for our location afterwards and a party and band that rocked the house all night.
Something a little different for me last week. Food and lifestyle pics for Fresh Catering’s venue The Bar at the End of the Wharf. We had the perfect day weather wise to shoot for their needs and I had great fun working with a completely different subject matter – i.e. not people ! Such a great place to enjoy the harbour no matter what the weather, the venue has super high ceilings that I love and lots of natural interior materials …. not to mention great coffee, cocktails and food.
Sweetness huh ?! I was so glad Sarah approached me to cover her and Ben’s intimate day after I shot her sister Laura’s wedding many years ago. Sarah and Ben opted for a ‘first look’ for their location photos prior to the ceremony, so after the ‘deed was done’ they could get straight into partying with their family and friends. Ben had a lot of family travel from Italy for the wedding and I have to say I love to photograph Italians at an emotional event like a wedding – they’re so passionate and don’t hide it ! Ben’s Dad made their very special secret family recipe Tiramisu Cake for the end of the night which was an incredibly personal touched that I just loved.
I don’t do a lot of family sessions … but for some people I just can’t say no :-) That of course includes my beautiful friends Amanda & Jeff and their equally gorgeous offspring ! We had this session scheduled in for so many months and I couldn’t believe our terrible luck as it was raining heavily the night before and in the morning. We decided to go ahead and do the shoot regardless, and I’m so glad we did as the rain held off a bit here and there and we still got some lovely moments of their little tribe. xoxo
