Anita & Rex

One of the greatest things about being a wedding photographer is the privilege I am granted  being invited into a family's most sacred realm to capture moments that will most likely out live the people in them. This is a trust that is hard to earn, yet it is handed over to me wholeheartedly. That trust is fortified when I get invited back into that sacred realm once again, to photograph another wedding of the same family, a family that has now accepted me as one of their own. A family that I would be proud to be a part of (still waiting on the adoption papers). That family is the Lee family. And this is just another chapter of their beautiful story.

This chapter belongs to Anita and Rex. I had the honour of photographing Anita's sister Nikki's wedding to Thomas a few years back and forged a beautiful connection, not only to Nikki and Thomas who I now call good friends, but to the whole family. Being back amongst their kin was an emotional experience for me. Sometimes the sentiment of having such an important role to play in the story of the couple I'm shooting, overwhelms me, and here the sentimental was for the entire family.

Anita and Rex have something pretty special and they know it. It is evident in just how much they make each other laugh. It is always a joy to see such a strong synergy between a couple, but this time I felt something different. Like a familial reassurance, I felt comforted in knowing that Anita had found herself a good man. Almost like how a brother might feel when his sister is getting married. What ever that feeling was, I can't wait to feel it all over again when Alex, the lucky last member of the Lee family to get married, finally pops the question to his Renata. 

I just hope he doesn't leave us waiting too long.

Jelena & Hamish

It's Valentine's day today. A day when we typically get subjected to a lot of overly sentimental marketing tropes trying to describe that indescribable emotion we know as LOVE. A feeling that is indescribable but when we see it, and when we feel it, it is unmistakable.

I see it A LOT. It's part of my job. To see love. But every once in a while I'll see a love that shines like no other and shakes my romantic soul to the core. A love that belongs in another world and another time. This is the enigma poets have fawned over for eons. This is the final chapter at the end of an enthralling book. This is describing the indescribable.

This is Jelena and Hamish...

Hayley & Marc


When Hayley and Marc decided to get married, little did they realise just how epic their wedding was going to be. Weddings can get out of hand sometimes, but these guys had just the right mixture of the personal, the pretty and the profound. 

Take it away guys...

The Alexander's

When Ben called to say he wanted to book a family portrait session as a surprise Mother's Day gift to his new wife Jess (who was about to celebrate her first Mother's Day), I was in. Jess of course was surprised and thrilled to be able to go back to the place they were married, Yandina Station, to wander the farm all over again. This time with little Maeve in tow...

Lucy + Dave

I don't think it was a hard decision for Lucy and Dave to decide to have their wedding on the property that Dave's family have grown up on for generations (including Dave). Not only was their decision influenced by the sentimental and historical significance of the property, but I think maybe the 180 degree view of the Gold Coast coast line might have played its part too? This spectacular property set the stage for what was to become a night that had it all - portable bar, boxing ring dance floor, 40 foot long banquet table, fireworks and of course a guest list that was ready to party.. hard!
