I had so much fun with this gorgeous couple, I’m so excited for their wedding in November at Leonda by the Yarra! Caroline was in the bridal party of one of the very first weddings I ever shot in Melbourne, so it was lovely to see her again! I was blessed to capture a few memories in this stage of their relationship, at a park just accross the road from where they live. xx
Here’s a little peek from my weekend. Melbourne has welcomed Spring with open arms! In the past couple of weeks the weather has warmed, the air is smelling sweet with blossoms and jasmine flowers…..ahhh it’s so lovely. I’m completely ready for a bit of warmth after what has felt like a long bleak winter! I drove to Fitzroy Gardens after this gorgeous shoot at the Gleadell Farmers Market in Fitzroy with the lovely Erin and Will, to lay on the picnic blanket for a few hours just soaking up the sun, the warm breeze and beauty of new blossoms. Happy Spring!! xx
This winter, I wanted to challenge myself creatively. I wanted to photograph lots of different couples, to challenge the usual way I do things and to generally mix things up a bit! I started with my ‘Lets Stay Together‘ project, which I’m still doing. My aim for the project is to portray other couples having fun together, actively making time for each other. I wanted other couples to be inspired by those images. I wanted people to realise that relationships are a choice, and to keep them alive they need loving care and attention.
A couple who reached out to me for the project was Gabi and Ilan. They are engaged, and for religious and personal reasons they don’t have any physical contact before their wedding day. When Gabi first told me this via email, my first thought was ‘what an amazing challenge’! How was I going to capture Gabi and Ilan’s love for each other? My photography style is quite warm, snuggly and romantic, how was I going to portray that feeling in the photos?
What Gabi and Ilan made me realise is that love isn’t all about hugs and kisses. It’s also about the way you look at each other, the way you talk to one another, it’s also about the way you laugh together, the way you whisper into their ear. Love can be expressed in many different ways. Thank you Gabi and Ilan for showing me, and reminding me of this. xx
I feel privileged and beyond blessed to be living my dream, photographing many amazing couples and beautiful weddings around the world. I'm passionate about giving couples remarkable experiences that enrich lives and go beyond beautiful photographs. True love is a big deal!
