Hi everyone! It's a bit belated but Happy New Year! It's been a great 2014 for us and we are so grateful for the opportunities we've had to work with our lovely clients and share our work with you! Thank you for the support and here's to an even better 2015! We thought we would kick off the blog in 2015 with Johanna and Nathan's wedding which I travelled to Geelong to cover! I first met Johanna in 2013, she was visiting from Germany, in Perth on a working visa and planned on travelling around our beautiful country as well. After six months of saving up hard earned money, she took off in a campervan she had bought only a week before leaving and we said our goodbyes, convinced she was headed back to Germany at the end of the year when her visa expired. Things have a funny way of working out, on her travels in northern Western Australia, she met Nathan in Hedland. And the rest, as they say, is history. We travelled to Geelong (Victoria) where Nathan grew up and where most of his family now lives and had a great day celebrating their first day as husband and wife! So here's my take on their first day of their new lives together... One of the highlights of the day would had to have been Nathan's nieces and nephew, aren't they just adorable? We then headed out for some bridal party shots around Geelong... Then it was time to paaaaaarty on at the reception! Johanna and Nathan chose the Little Chapel on Ryrie to host their reception, which is an old Church converted into a café. I loved the rafters up above! Was a [...]
Say hello to Michael and Vickie. James' friends from university and all round nice people. They got married more than six months ago and chose to have some extra bridal photos taken with us on a cloudy public holiday in September. Despite the cold, windy weather and the odd passing shower of rain, we had great fun capturing this beautiful couple! This is some of what we got up to... Love the love you can see in their eyes for each other! Both of them agreed it was a much less stressful affair doing a post wedding shoot rather than a rushed one on their wedding day! Thanks to Michael and Vickie for letting us capture them, for being so adventurous with all our crazy ideas and for being willing to tramp through all the bushes to get some of these shots. It was a really fun shoot and we hope you'll treasure these photos for the rest of your lives together!
More than a month ago, James and I had the privilege of shooting David and Osri's wedding! They are fun loving couple, from different cultures and each with a family of their own already. It was incredible to see the two families come together to celebrate their wedding day. Osri's family all flew over from Indonesia and they involved each of their children in the bridal party. Even David's granddaughters got involved, almost stealing the show in their princess outfits! Special thanks must go to Danielle and Monica, the lovely bridesmaids for taking care of us the whole day, and to David and Osri for choosing us to capture your special day! We wish you and your new extended family all the very best for a very bright future together as husband and wife!
Remember Sonny and Justina from one of our earlier posts? We had the privilege to work with this two lovebirds once again, this time for an engagement shoot at several iconic land marks around Perth. The two of them were real troopers, braving the cold early morning to catch the sunrise. Their fun, easy going nature and ability to just be themselves made our jobs behind the camera so much more easier as we breezed through the locations. We hope the both of you had as much fun as we did and we wish you all the best for your wedding and future together as husband and wife! =)
When Irene and Nathan approached us to do their maternity and baby photos, we couldn't be more happy to oblige! Having known the both of them for a long time, it was exciting to see how the little bub was developing and how thrilled yet a little nervous the couple was as due date approached. I guess nothing really prepares you for your first born. The unknown, the stories, the endless advice and opinions you hear and read in books and on the internet. I'm sure when baby Audrey finally arrived, there must have been a moment of such great joy and love for this new family. And then came the sleeplessness and lots of diaper changing. =P Despite the lack of sleep we sure hope that the two of you cherish these precious early moments together with your beautiful little daughter.
Remember Andrew and Stephanie from our last post? You can check out their pre-wedding session here. Andrew's entire immediate family plus little nephew also made the trip from Singapore for a family holiday so they thought why not have a family session as well? As you can see, they are such a warm and loving family! We had too much fun trying to make little Nathaniel smile for the camera as we enjoyed the surprisingly warm light that graced us that afternoon! We hope you enjoy these precious family moments!
At the start of winter, James and I had the opportunity to shoot for a fun-loving couple, Andrew and Stephanie all the way from sunny Singapore! Travelling to Perth for a family holiday, they decided to squeeze in some pre-wedding photos in our fair city of Perth. It was a tad colder weather than what they were used to but they were so easy to work with nonetheless! Thanks Steph and Andrew for being so great to work with, we wish you both an amazing life together as husband and wife!
Meet Leon and Marianne, a very fun loving and whacky couple from Singapore. I got the chance to hang out with this lovely couple who made the trip all the way to Perth to do an engagement photo shoot. Being the start of winter, it was always going to be a bit of a gamble with the weather. But on the day of the photo shoot, the weather couldn't have been better! Sure, there were patches of rain here and there, but out of all that, we did get an amazing double rainbow! Here are some photos from the day. Congratulations to the both you!
Meet Ronnie and Christa and their gorgeous family! I've known this couple for many years now, even before their kids were born. It's amazing how time flies and now with three wonderful kids, I'm so glad to be given this opportunity to capture some family photos for them. Here are just some of the photos taken from the day.
A few weeks ago, we decided to go on a road trip to check out some new potential locations for a photo shoot. Since it was going to be outdoors, we asked a close knit group of friends and their canine companions if they would like to be our models. With car packed full with 3 dogs, 3 chatty friends and 2 photographers, we took off on our road trip. As the dogs happily embraced the outdoors, the girls busily chatted away while the cameras frantically clicked in the back ground. Here are some of the photos from an enjoyable outing in the park.
