With a few weddings still postponing as a result of CO-VID locking down the international borders, it has provided us the opportunity to celebrate and reflect upon those awesome weddings we got to be a part of just prior to the CO-VID lockdowns, yet haven’t found the the time to share with you here. So, with that being said/the case … here goes!

Calista & Paul … what a day! It started with a couple of tea ceremonies (one at the Star Casino and another on the lower north shore), before off we went to the wedding nuptials at St Andrews Cathedral. Throw in a few pics with the bride & groom before we were at the Golden Century for lunch, some speeches and loads of fun and smiles. We snapped a few more pics in the eastern suburbs before we wrapped up around 6pm. Not a bad day right! Top shelf fun all the way! Just the best of days! Calista & Paul & the crew made it so much fun, check it out!

It doesn’t get much better than this! It was so cool to be here and celebrate these two family’s coming together, Rosy with her daughters and Stephen with his son and daughter – it was the best of days! Of course, blue skies, that view over Sydney harbour from Athol Hall, and one-hundred plus of their nearest and dearest guests (yes, it was pre-CO-VID times) also helped make this day so superb. Amongst my many lasting memories, sitting here typing away the brief time we spent witnessing Stephen + Rosy getting ready was truly original for us…. the looks on their children’s faces as they were helping Mum and Dad glam up was way cool! Throw into the mix the fact that Stephen + Rosy go so well in front of the camera, and well, this bloke was loving every moment of it! It was awesome moment after awesome moment to snap away at. Loved it, loved it, loved it!

To pinch a line from Lenny Kravitz, this is what happens when you ….. let love rule! Despite the current lockdown as a result of CO-VID19, Shirley + Ben went ahead and tied the knot last week and it was awesome! Yip, they’ve postponed the massive celebration and party for 12-months time, but last week they went “nop, we’re going ahead” and yours truly was able to photograph it (and double as an official witness on the marriage certificate). A massive thanks has gotta go to Carol Proven for hosting the event at her glamorous home down Cronulla way (and for taking on the celebrant duties of course). All things considered, just an incredible way to spent two-hours. Shirley + Ben let their love rule and were absolute naturals in front of the camera whilst tolerating my photographer catch cry of “just one more” with tremendous patience.

Love the smaller wedding mid-week thing, all the best places and people to yourself. Throw in a pictorial shoot before the ceremony, being able to focus on the bride & groom entirely (i.e. no bridal party), a funky sunset, a tear or seventeen along the way and you have the makings of a pretty top shelf afternoon and evening in my book.

Flamin’ underpants Batman! WE WON! The shoulders went back, the chest puffed out and I’m struttin’ round like I have massive tree trunks under my arms! WINNER! Thank you so, so, so, so, so, ssoooooo much to all the amazing loved-up couples who voted for yours truly. SO DARN COOL!

Here is a quick look at what’s been hitting our social pages lately, ie: Facebook, Instagram, Blog etc. All things considered it kinda sums up why we love what we do so, so much. Awesome people, great times, sunny (and sometimes not so sunny) skies, happy days all round basically.

At long last, here we have it. Deon & Christelle’s fabulous day in the sun at Bendooley Estate last October. We had been building towards this for a while, in that you meet people like this, find out their plans and where it is all taking place and that little voice inside you goes “WOO-HOO”, code can’t wait, bring it on. And everything went as expected, totally freakin’ awesome. Amazing weather came to play and everyone got stuck in to having the coolest time ever. In short, a wedding photographers dream scenario really.

When the bride keeps telling you one thing in the lead up to her wedding day and that one thing is “I just want the day to be fun” as a professional photographer you know you are in for a great day. Long story short…… Stefanie & Brad’s big day on the north shore of Sydney was all that and then some.
