{He Asked, She Said Yes}

I recently did a photo shoot that was actually a secret proposal🙂 I had wanted to do one of these for quite some time and was thrilled when Basil contacted me.

Isabel (his now fiance) and Basil’s sister had “gifted” Basil a couples photo shoot for his birthday (well so Isabel thought) with the help of Basil’s sister this was all set up and was in fact Basil’s idea and his gift to Isabel. Are you with me? haha

He had planned to propose to her during this photo shoot so we could capture it all. It was quite fun planning & scheming and all along Isabel had absolutely no idea (even when Basil secretly gave the ring box to my husband and then my hubby had to get it back to him right before he proposed) there was a lot of secret business happening that day.

We started out at the City Botanic Gardens (which is where Isabel wanted to have the photos).

And then we went to Victoria Gold Complex (for the proposal) which is where this lovely couple had their first date. We played dumb when Isabel had mentioned that Basil thought it might be nice to have a few photos at this spot.

Then the nerves kicked in…

Kandy & Dylan opted for a beautiful, soft, pink & grey, romantic wedding. With gorgeous views we had lots of fun taking some spectacular photos at Cabarita beach.

{Jayde & Danielle} 2.8.2014 //Yarra Valley

 

Jayde & Danielle were married in Yarra Valley – 2nd August 2014. It was a beautiful trip down to Melbourne. Jayde & Danielle were amazing hosts along with their families. We felt very looked after.

It was freezing but spectacular! We love that they both allowed for their wedding to be unique and special & really reflect them as a couple. This wedding was definitely that! They are both so very in love and also have so much love for their friends and family. We were truly blessed to be a part of capturing their special day.

2014 – The Year in Review

2014-07-30_0213

 

I cannot believe we are now very much in the year of 2015!

We had a wonderful time throughout 2014, meeting & photographing many new & some regular clients. Its always an honour to be a part of capturing these special moments in peoples lives.

We decided for 2014 to take on a bit less (but it still ended up being a crazy big year) but its was an adventure and we are so grateful for it! We got to do a wedding in Melbourne and also one up north at Paronella Park which was an amazing experience. Thank you so much to all of our clients and followers, we appreciate your love & support so much!

Now very much specializing & focusing on weddings and engagement sessions, I still LOVE doing maternity sessions and then the odd glamour shoot here and there. I felt like I didnt really have the time to do many shoots just for my own creativity and fun which is something I want to take the time out for this year to do. So stay tuned…. but in the meantime please enjoy looking through some of our highlights throughout 2014.

And for those interested, here is our Year in Review from 2013.

{Markus & Melina} Branell Homestead 17.5.14

Markus & Melina were married at Branell Homestead and as you can see for yourself, it is a stunning location! Absolutely perfect for a country/vintage styled wedding.

It was a perfect day (it did look like it was going to rain at one point during photos but it blew away and gave us a spectacular sunset!)

Hair & Makeup – Fusion Hair & Makeup

{Tim & Erika} Engaged

Ok so I don’t like to be too biased with my photo shoots but I must say this engagement sessions has been one of my all time favourites to date! Erika is actually my amazing hair dresser – go check out Alexander Woulfe. But a side from that she along with her fiance are just absolutely stunning, genuine & loving people.

By looking at these photos you WOULD think they are both models but no, they are just everyday (well plus some extra gorgeousness) people like you and me who had their engagement shoot and TOTALLY rocked it!

They wanted to have a bit of a 1940’s/50’s theme to their shoot as they both love getting dressed up so it was perfect for them and I love that the photo shoot ended up with a bit of a Notebook style/theme to it. (which is one of my all time fav movies!)

I was oohing and aahing through their whole shoot and pretty much didn’t want it to end. They were both a delight to photograph and to say I am super excited about their wedding next year would be an understatement!

Enjoy their images below…

{Best Friends} Photoshoot

When Sarah wanted to surprise her best friend with a fun photo shoot for her birthday, I asked her what they were both into, & of course, the top of the list was shoes and fashion! So I thought we could recreate a bit of a fun girly bedroom out in the forest as a fun backdrop for an awesome best friends photo shoot. I thought we could go with a whimsical, pretty look, a party/going out look and then end with a funky, rock/grunge look with the tutus and big hair.

It was so much fun to do and we were all so happy with the outcome. A massive shout out to Erika who styled the girls hair throughout the session – Alexandra Woulfe and also to Clarissa for her gorgeous tutus – Venice & Me

This beautiful couple were just divine to photograph! It was the perfect location with a great set up along with thoughtfully put together outfits. I love every single image of theirs! We are very much looking forward to their wedding coming up in October of this year.
