And now for something different!

And now for something different!

Jess and Russ’s post-wedding but not too “trashing-the-dress” session! We’re not sure who was more excited about this session, Jess and Russ or us! We’ve had a number of couples think about a post-wedding shoot but until now Jess and Russ have been the first ones to go for it. Jess couldn’t wait to get back into her dress 3 weeks after their wedding and we picked the most gorgeous day for it. The light was beautiful with little breeze and calm seas as we headed off to local Fishermans and Mt Martha beaches. Being a post-wedding shoot we could all be a little more relaxed and try out some different things which you wouldn’t necessarily do on the day itself. We love the contrasts between the couple all dressed up and the rusty shed. This is one of our favourite backdrops and quite often use it for pre-wedding shoots together with the wall of one of our favourite local cafes. At the end of the shoot they were both brave enough to take to the water for the final few shots before the dress went off to the dry cleaners. So girls, if you would love to wear your dress again, think about one of these sessions. You don’t have to get wet but it’s something fun to have in your wedding photo collection.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                ...

We shot Megan and Wayne’s wedding 2 years ago and now they have an addition to their family, little Jackson! He was so good during the photo shoot which took place at our studio and at Fishermans Beach in Mornington, only getting a little grumpy towards the end as it was turning into quite a warm day. Congratulations to Megan and Wayne as he is such a gorgeous boy!...

Samantha & Trevor

Samantha & Trevor

Sam and Trevor weren’t so lucky with the weather on their special day. We kept our fingers crossed that the rain would just keep away until the reception started but unfortunately it arrived just as we were leaving Sam’s house. Fortunately Mornington Golf Club has a back-up plan and the ceremony was held in one of the reception rooms. We had a couple of dry patches which allowed us to do the family groups outside and a few of Sam and Trevor later in the evening. We went to a nearby holiday house for the bridal party photos which had a lovely porch and balcony as the rain didn’t even allow us to even take a couple of photos on nearby Mornington beach! Sam and Trevor certainly didn’t let the rain stop their enjoyment of the day, kept smiling and having fun as did their guests at the evening party!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      ...

Brenda & John

Brenda and John had a fairly untraditional start to the day as they both decided to get ready at home! However, it didn’t spoil the surprise for John seeing Brenda in her wedding dress for the first time once she was ready. They were married in the lovely chapel at Dalywaters Rose Garden in Mornington.  We then spent some time taking photos around the property before heading off down to Mornington beach. It was a perfect Autumn day with gorgeous light throughout the afternoon. We then went on to Mornington Golf Club for the reception and then afterwards they enjoyed a honeymoon in Perth.  ...

Jessica and Russell were married at Summerfields Country House at the beginning of March. It was a beautiful Autumn day although a little on the hot side in the mid-30’s! After the wedding they enjoyed a lovely honeymoon overseas and here is a selection from their special day.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                ...
