  I’ve been sitting on this blog post for way too long. During wedding season life is pretty hectic and I find it tough to squeeze blogging into the mix, but once the offseason gets underway sometime in May I find myself with more time up my sleeve. Then once the NBA playoffs finish up in […]

  With nearly 200 weddings under my belt it’s not often I come across something I’ve not seen before, but Louise and Ash executed a reception idea that was totally new and super awesome.

Al Ru Farm Wedding

There’s no denying it, Lucas has a Jude Law vibe about him. And Lisa? Well, let’s go with Penelope Cruz. Even though they look like a couple straight out of Hollywood they have the down to earth friendliness of country folk, which is perfect because they’ve chosen to make the Clare Valley their home. And […]

One might assume that this is because I’ve not had anything to blog, au contraire, the last few months have included some of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever shot filled with smiles, laughter, happiness and good times. I’ll be […]
