As you might have seen recently, a photo of mine has graced the front cover of the Australian bridal magazine White. This is quite a big deal for me. A milestone reached in a relatively short career. I had submitted photos for their cover before, but considering it is a very particular image that has to be the face of the magazine, I never made the cut. Until that is, Marianne and John serendipitously came into my life.
When Marianne first contacted me, she mentioned that I was the only photographer she had looked at. This flattering remark is what I dream of hearing from all my clients. Love at first sight and all that. But when she began to describe the details of her intimate Melbourne wedding I knew I had to shoot this wedding. What ever it took.
The thing that makes Marianne and John stand out from the crowd, is their unique sense of style. John’s suave European cut and Marianne’s old Hollywood glamour, make them the photographer’s dream couple. In fact, many people have asked me whether these two are models doing a ‘styled’ shoot. It is hard to convince people otherwise. Marianne is extremely comfortable in front of the camera, and for good reason. Her hubby has the lucky job of taking snaps of her for her blog Esme and the Laneway, a vintage inspired meditation on the things Marianne loves most, Fashion (vintage), beauty, make-up, books and good living.

White Magazine snapped these photos up as soon as they saw them, and made us promise that we would keep them secret until the magazine was released. Well, no more hiding this beautiful wedding. It is all yours to devour!
