Since the introduction of smart phone camera filters and platforms such as Instagram, the vintage look has made a come back.. however what we see is not really “Vintage” I tend to think it is more of a “new vintage” with the use of new camera and software technology you end up with a much more polished look than the old vintage. Never the less it does take us back to a time where getting your photo taken was a big occasion, with themes, hair, make up and plenty of planning going into every shoot.
Recently Elizabeth came into Helena’s Day Spa in Roselands, Sydney http://www.helenasdayspa.com to be transformed by Cara and Bec our super talented make up and hair stylists to give Elizabeth a completely different look to what she is used to for the sake of this Photo session.
The shoot was relaxed, with most of the session being done in our on site studio, with the outdoor shots done at a local reserve. You can see below that we got some really nice photo’s of Elizabeth as well as a heap of funny out takes… I might post some of those in my next blog…

Bringing a Brides Pinterest Board to life requires many months of planning, organising and attention to detail.
Flowers, Bouquets, Table settings, The Cake and Jewellery to name a few and don’t forget Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Only a bride (or a very involved Groom) can understand the thought that goes into each and everyone of these projects.
The following images are a tribute to the “Details” of the Wedding Day..

Below are some photos I took of newly engaged couple Lee & Becky. We had a nice early start at the Darkes Forest Horse ranch which is 1 hour south of Sydney. The plan was to beat the Saturday morning crowds of like minded lovers of horses. Darkes Forest is a lovely location for Photography with the session being made even more fun with the addition of Becky’s horse Brandy, she was such a well behaved horse and didn’t complain once. Thanks to Becky I even got a quick ride of Brandy myself at the end of the morning.

The Southern Highlands are a beautiful place to visit especially when you’re a photographer. When I heard there was going to be a hedge maze at Melissa & Barney’s wedding I was extra excited about what we could create.
Wedding Photographers need to keep an eye on the clock to ensure we don’t blow out the day’s schedule. This was one of those days where the Bridal Party was engaging, inspiration was everywhere and time flew….

Wow! Cook Islanders know how to throw a party. Over 400 guests, a sea of floral tea shirts, floral headbands, fruit platters an Island band and the belting out of some well known Maori songs I enjoyed but couldn’t quite understand…. and that was just the service.
Tai & Moon held their wedding at Nurragingi Reserve in Blacktown which was somewhere I hadn’t photographed before and definitely a place I’d like to get back to and explore some more photo opportunities.
It was nice to see such a big focus on family, culture and food throughout the day. Tai and Moon were so easy going and incredibly relaxed on what was a long, hot day… Congratulations to you both!

Many years ago an established Photographer friend asked me to be second shooter at a large wedding in the Hunters Hill area. My first job of the day was to cover the grooms prep at his family’s home.
Pascale was getting ready upstairs when I noticed a larger than life childhood portrait at the entrance to his room. I began to set up the shot with the anticipation that he would eventually walk through the doorway and I could capture this transition from boy to man, but instead the grooms Dad entered the room and gave his boy a big hug, a beautiful moment between father and son.
At the time I didn’t have any children but I always liked this shot for it’s journalistic qualities and that special father son moment, however only recently it had an emotional connection when it occurred to me that one day my little boy similar age to the boy in the picture will be all grown up.
Even though it’s still a while off, it reinforces the fact we must embrace every moment and every step of our Children’s journey through life, because in this busy fast paced world we live in time can really slip by.

This has to be one of my favourite emotion filled shots of 2012.
One of the keys to Wedding photography is anticipating where and when the action is going to happen and making sure your always in the best position so you can capture those magical split seconds in time.
