1. I Love Wednesdays at One Fine Day


    To say we loved our booth for this year’s One Fine Day would be an understatement. It was a real labour of love and DIY goodness. We basically transported a part of my house to Australian Technology Park and tried to bring love and colour to our booth.

    A lot was DIYed in the weeks prior to the fair, including our rug (which is not so secretly my faovourite DIY from this year). But our kind of amazing wall was made by the wonderful guys from WildSets, who built our epic wall, I really wanted it to feel lived in and like you were coming into our backyard and they really nailed the look. It turned out more perfect than I could’ve imagined, and I’m trying to figure out how to put it up in our house!

    Thank you to my better half Nick for, as always, keeping me sane and running with my crazy ideas, my biz buddy Vic for making sure things ran smoothly, Jack attack for coming to help set everything up and to everyone else who came and said hello it was so lovely to meet you all and I hope you enjoyed the fair!



  2. Kristin + Cory // A Montrose Berry Farm Wedding


    I knew from the very first email that Kristin sent that their wedding was going to be something special, everything they did was just such a wonderful effort amongst them and their families to make their day wonderful! They were a little nervous about the ceremony and standing in front of their family & friends, so we did a first look before the ceremony with just the two of them seeing each other on their wedding day and I honestly cannot recommend it enough to couples! There’s nothing quite like seeing the person you love all dressed up and ready to get married and to be able to react in any which way that you feel like is just wonderful, intimate and natural.

    Kristin & Cory were just so excited for their wedding day, and I was so excited to be able to document it. They were featured last Wednesday on the lovely Polka Dot Bride and below are some of the people who helped make their day the wonderful celebration that it was.

  3. So long and thanks for all the fish //2012


    I should preface this post with I am a monstrous geek. Absolute. Total. Utter. Geek. And in thinking about the year that was 2012, a Douglas Adams quote from Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy popped into my head:

    “The Guide says there is an art to flying”, said Ford, “or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning
    how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.”- Douglas Adams

    2012 was a year of a lot of throwing myself at the ground for lack of a better word, and I won’t lie, it’s left me a little battered and bruised, but 2012, you were a year of personal growth, more than any other. I’ve been lax on blogging, because sometimes growth is hard to quantify, but I have to say thank you so much to each and every one of my wonderful couples. I am beyond fortunate to get the couples that I do, you are all so much a part of my family that I cannot imagine the year that was without you all.

    I feel like I tinker in my own little world most of the time and one of my tinkerings this year came in the form of my album templates, that have been so lovingly supported by the photography community, I am so thankful that I can give back to the community and help in some little way.

    Thank you all for your support, your hugs, your friendship, your openness, and of course letting me into your lives.
