As if the rush for Christmas isn’t enough when it comes to the private sector we had the corporate market wanting things do for yesterday as well – to be honest though you will never hear us complaining because:
1. it is nice to be wanted
2. it is nice to be seen as good at what you do
3. it is nice to be able to say “yes, no problem, lets go”
4. and lastly we will never complain about the phone ringing with people wanting us to take some photographs for them – code: we’ll take the bat phone ringing constantly as opposed to not at all any day!

Hello everyone! Say hi to George & Elizabeth who celebrated their wedding day at Centennial Vineyard in Bowral mid November this year. As you can see this was a pretty spectacular day to witness let alone photograph so I will let you jump straight in and check things out. Six-hours earlier this is how we began……….

I think I may have got carried away! You see normally I put together a wedding showcase for my blog by collecting a modest amount of images into their own folder for final preparation, you know, a bit of “that looks awesome”, “love it”, “cool”, “add that to the mix” and “that shows the day” kind of action and always with an eye to not going off early and holding something back for when the couple calls in to the studio to collect everything. Long story short it got to 11pm last night and it was a case of “what the hell is going on? This blog post has taken me twice as long as normal to prepare”, it didn’t take long to work out why! Just the 170+ odd photographs I wanted to highlight/show off from Matt & Jess’ wedding if you don’t mind! To my knowledge this is the biggest showcase I have ever put together.
So how to choose the first photograph to showcase? A cover/signature image that encapsulates everything. Basically it is both a no probs and mission impossible scenario. No probs because the image above perfectly showcases the mood and feel that existed throughout the whole day. Fun! Fun! Fun! It was perfect! Loads of it from beginning to end. But then on the other hand it is mission impossible because as my conservative selection of the humble 170+ images would suggest there were so, so many moments not to be missed!
So my tip to you is take the time to check out Matt & Jess’ wedding day. As my subconscious image selection would suggest this was awesome!

Four families making up one extended family got together at Fagan Park with a plan to capture one group photograph and frame if for the grand-parents – got it, success, job done! And naturally (as you would expect) we made the most of the opportunities bringing the family together and a place like Fagan Park provides; the separate families, the candids and the mischief. An awesome way to spend a couple of hours if you ask me! Check it out!

Riley had his first taste of sailing school the other day so why not capture a brief photo documentary of it we figured. A big thanks to the Hawkesbury Sailing Club for putting on the best day in the sun a young eight year could wish for. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

Just ducked out to capture interior shots of some new properties built by MPD Construction and working on them tonight I reckon they are coming together nicely. If anyone else out there in Sydney town is looking to capture something similar give me (aka Dale) a call on 0404 010 922.

We have just had Anna & Stephen’s incredible wedding story featured on ‘Easy Weddings’, this is hands down one of the best wedding stories I’ve ever been a part of, check it out HERE
Here is the full version of what Anna had to say – give it a read, it’s incredible!
On the 21st of February my very traditional husband from Northern Ireland proposed on one knee with an iPad in hand. Yes, as I watched him bend down I was very perplexed that rather than a diamond he held an Apple, but I guess it could have been a sign that the rest of our engagement was not going to go quite to plan! The ring was stuck in customs and not wanting to lose another day, Stephen decided that a picture was the next best thing.
It turned out this hurdle wasn’t the biggest one we were to face before we managed to walk down the aisle, all organised and booked for the 18th of December, I received a phone call at 2am on the morning of the 19th of October that was to change everything.
Whilst at work Stephen and a co-worker had fallen 18m from a bridge. The next three and a half weeks were a blur as he fought for his life in an ICU Unit in a very local Chinese hospital in Hong Kong. It turned out that Stephen had managed to land on his feet during the fall which ultimately saved his life, unfortunately his co-worker was not so lucky. Family and friends from New Zealand and Northern Ireland raced to his side, in what can only be described as the most incredible outpouring of love and support I have ever seen. (more…)

I had the good fortune of photographing Shankar & Vruchi’s awesome wedding at Bendooley Estate in Bowral, NSW in January this year and it’s proving to be a very popular wedding as it is being showcased all over the place.
I recently managed to get Shankar & Vruchi’s wedding approved for a ‘Real Wedding’ showcase on the ‘Easy Weddings’ website (ie: 360,000 unique views a month) and it looks amazing! Check it out HERE!
And then Shankar & Vruchi managed to get their own showcase approved on ‘The Crimson Bride’, an online wedding planning site “for the style-savvy Modern Indian Bride”. Check it out HERE!

I needed to test the mix of the humble flashlight and white umbrella so I roped in my two boys the other night before their bedtime. Thankfully the cul-de-sac where we live was perfectly dark enough and devoid of traffic. I reckon we have something here and I’m looking forward to developing the concept during my upcoming weddings – stay tuned! (more…)
