Wet and windy are two things you’re not really looking for on your wedding day, but for Jess and Shaun it didn’t matter. The inside/outside debate had been raging all day, ultimately they decided to throw caution to the wind (literally) and roll the dice with the soggy bottom lawns at Mt Lofty House. In […]

I hate to say it, but you could make a pretty good case that the rest of the world does weddings better than we do. Whether it’s a French wedding that typically kicks on until the sun comes up the next morning or a Lebanese wedding that has the most insane drumming to get the […]

Adam’s first love was not Bec. It was Eleanor, his 1970 XW Ford Falcon. When he proposed he said there’s one condition about the wedding – “that I get to finish doing up my car so she can be in it!!” True to his word Eleanor was finished for the wedding and Adam and boys […]

Way back on Halloween last year I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding that was a bit different (which I love). I mention Halloween not because it just happened to be on that day but because the whole day had a very halloweeny theme (black cat handbags for the girls, black wedding cake with […]

Al Ru Farm Wedding

I first encountered Jessica and Mitchell at the wedding of Jessica’s cousin Stuart many years ago. One of my enduring memories of that wedding was two guys executing the most perfect Gangnam Style dance I’d ever seen (I told you it was many years ago – truth be told I miss wedding dance floor Gangnam, […]

It’s true. I don’t always remember what a couple looks like between the time of our first meeting and our second meeting which is often 12 months later, particularly when our first meeting is done over Skype. Such was the case with Olivia and Francis. For many months those names were staring down at me from […]

Any business book will tell you that to stand out from the crowd you need to be doing something different. Zig when everyone else zags. To that end, when the rest of the world was busy putting together their summary of 2014 at the appropriate time (ie the last few days of the year) I […]

Choo choo!!! What’s that sound? It’s the blog train and I’m back on board! It’s been a busy year on the weddings front and on the home front (a new baby boy, our second!) but it’s been an extremely lean year for the blog.  These days I post a lot of photos over on my […]

I used to be good at blogging. I started the blog back in 2008 and was posting a new entry every couple of weeks, the next year I cranked up the output to nearly 1 post week and I kept up that pace for about 3 years. In 2011 I had 42 posts for the […]

Cassie and Josh headed down to Adelaide from up North to get married last year. The wedding had a bit of a beachy undercurrent (pun partially intended) with no venue being further than 5 minutes from the ocean. The guys got ready at the Stamford Grand, the girls were at a house in Brighton, the […]
