Exploring Cable Bay

This afternoon while his sister was having a play date with her best friend, Archie asked me if we could go exploring. I hadn't been to Cable Bay for a few years so we set of with the camera in the late afternoon sun. Archie is a real photographer, at 7 yrs old he is enjoying using the tripod and taking some shots with my help.

We really are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world standing onto of the hill over looking Cable Bay truly brings life to your soul!

I took along my Canon 5DMiii, 17-40mm L and 50mm 1.4 prime.  

 

 

Emma & Anton's Wedding

On Saturday the 28th November 2015 I was privileged to shoot the wedding of Emma and Anton. In the months leading up to the big day the bride and I met up and talked about pose ideas, the plans and how the day would flow. We watched the weather reports like crazy and although the wind was blowing a gale the weather was beautiful. 

The day started for me at the mother of the brides home where I captured the brides maids and then the beautiful bride get hair and makeup done. Even the wee flower girls got a splash of lip gloss and blusher. 

I headed out to the wedding venue to see a relaxed Groom and his party eagerly awaiting the bride who turned up in style, I just loved the blue car! Family and friends watched while the happy couple said their vows and became Mr and Mrs.. while the wind blew. 

The bridal party and I went to Isel Park to take some portraits which the wind kindly paused for followed by reception back at the venue.

What touched me about this wedding was the amount of love for friends, family and absent loved ones, all of whom were remembered. What a relaxed and beautiful wedding, where everyone was included and everything was planned for such smooth running.
