I absolutely love getting to photograph industry friends and their families. I first got to know Candice a few years ago when we worked together at a wedding, she is the very talented lady behind Beauty Within Makeovers.

If you haven’t organised makeup for your own wedding then what are you waiting for!!

I felt privileged to have her make me beautiful for my own special day and when she asked me to photograph her gorgeous family I could not have been more excited.

It’s pretty obvious how much love there is amongst this little group and they are just an all round awesome bunch of people.

…with just the right amount of crazy!!

“Your endearing nature, creative eye and artful soul helped us leave the rain behind and enjoy the moment…thank you” – Tom + Nicole

I had so much fun at this wedding, I forgot I was working. Although the skies opened up and it rained the whole day it didn’t stop these two from having the best day of their lives! I only met them once before their wedding but Nicole and Tom are the kind of people that you feel like you have known for a long time.

I hope you enjoy their story…

When I was a kid I often spent my school holidays with my grandparents in a little country town called Dunolly. I remembered the drive from Melbourne to be very picturesque and my days were always packed full of fun adventures. I was feeling nostalgic about my childhood and decided to return to the Goldfields region and make some new memories.

Just from the chats I had with these two I knew their wedding was going to be a winner! An art deco theme with a whole bunch of people that know how to party thrown in the mix and you have yourself one epic day.

Belinda and Ben had a day full of emotion, which started in the earlier hours right through to the reception where they announced that a baby Mason was on the way.

There were tears, laughter and more tears… It was perfect from start to finish.

zonzo-yarra-valley-wedding-photography_0001.jpgMost couples dread the thought of rain on their wedding day and unfortunately nothing can be done about the weather no matter how much planning is done. As a photographer, I don’t get concerned about the rain, if anything it challenges what I do and makes a wedding more unique and memorable for everyone.

These two were only interested in having a great time with each other and the rain didn’t bother them in the slightest, they even threw away the umbrellas and embraced the day they were given. Just before their reception the clouds broke and the sun poked through… very much deserved for these two truly amazing people.

This awesome pair were holding out on all their guests and led them to believe they were attending an engagement party… it was a pretty special moment when Bec walked into the room with her wedding dress on. There was lots of gasps, screams, and happy tears!
For Bec + Leigh, it wasn’t about having an extravagant “white wedding”, they thought outside the box and pulled off a relaxed, low key, cafe style wedding at The Deck in Brighton without a hitch.

Kellie + Jye blog-158

Kellie + Jye are an awesome couple and you can hardly call it a job when you get to work with such fun, easy going people. Their ceremony and reception were both held at Yarra Ranges Estate which included tonnes of details and splashes of colour. These two ooze style, from the dresses and suits, right down to the shoes. (Even if they did purchase two left shoes!)

Enjoy their story…

Emily + Viliame Blog 700px-244

When Vil + Em first asked me to photograph their wedding I couldn’t have been more excited. I have known Vil and his family since I can’t even remember and knew that it was going to be a hilarious and fun day before it had even started. Naturally Vil had chosen himself an awesome girl to spend the rest of his life with and feel so privilege that I was the one to capture it.

A beautiful ceremony was held at the Pig + Whistle on the Mornington Peninsula followed by a very trendy reception at Trofeo Estate. It was also great to see some Fijian culture thrown in the mix.

The weather went from extreme heat to storms and all the crazy winds  really just added to the fun. Plenty of tears going around, (mostly  from Vil) plenty of laughs and entertainment all day from the pair.

Enjoy their story…
