Wedding – Tammy & Frank

leave a comment »

Tammy and Frank exchanged vows in the grandiose church of the St Patrick’s Basilica in Fremantle. It was a day that was filled with lots of emotions, with lots of laughters and tears of joy.

After the ceremony, it was the formal session with the fun loving bridal party at Fremantle, and Minim Cove Park before heading to the Novotel Perth Langley hotel for the reception.

Little did I know that Frank’s father (and one of his uncles) actually knew my parents. What a small world!

Here are some of the images we documented that day…

Wedding – Angela and Jason

with one comment

It was just two months ago when Angela and Jason exchanged their vows in front of their families and the best of friends at the picturesque Milbrook Winery. The day was bright and cheerful, right in the middle of August. It was a beautiful winter morning when the wedding ceremony took place.

Angela and Jason were totally in love. With their two boys at their side and a third soon coming, the radiant bride brought many smiles on everyone’s face, and naturally, Jason could not take his eyes off his beautiful and pregnant wife throughout the ceremony.

Xanthe’s Infant Baptism

with one comment

A friend of mine from work asked me to shoot her daughter’s baptism. I was thrilled to be asked as I had been wanting to shoot Xanthe for a while but never quite find the opportunity to do so. Xanthe was so adorable during the entire service, and I was pleasantly surprised how she was able to hold up so well throughout the baptism service albeit it was actually time for a nap for her.

I was happy to be able to capture some key moments during the baptism and here are some photos to share.

Wedding – Laura and Elvis

with one comment

It was raining quite a bit on Laura and Elvis’s big day. Amazingly as it was, the rain stopped just in time for Laura to leave home for the church. When we were travelling between locations, the rain would start pouring but stop in time when as we arrived. There is an old saying that rain on your wedding day is a lucky omen. The Italians even have a saying for it, “Sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata”, which means that a wet bride is a lucky bride.

It also appears that this myth comes from several cultures mainly from the Hindu with the idea that a wet knot is harder to untie. Since marriage is often referred to as tying the knot. Rain was also a symbol of fertility to agricultural societies, since rain restored and maintained the wellness of crops. Crops were peoples main source of stability and income so it was thought to guarantee a long happy marriage!

While we did get some raindrops, we managed to stay dry and had some fun capturing awesome images.

Thank you Laura and El for sharing your special day with us. We did have heaps of fun and it was such a great joy to us to witness the love between you two and the love you shared with your family and friends.

Pre-Wedding: Laura & Elvis

On a late afternoon a few days before Laura & El’s wedding day in May, we took the couple to East Perth to do a pre-wedding session. With the sun setting against the cloudy sky, the ambient could not have been more romantic!

Valerie and Alex are getting married in Singapore later this year. We did an engagement session with them around some locations in Perth in April. The shoot was lots of fun as the couple quickly warmed up and relaxed in front of the cameras.

Wedding – Amanda and Kieran

with one comment

Amanda and Kieran were married on a perfect autumn day in May. One couldn’t ask for a better day. With cool gentle autumn breeze caressing our cheeks, golden sunlight peeling through the trees, the wedding ceremony was held in the most beautiful setting at the Sunken Gardens in UWA.

It was also an extra special day for me, it was my birthday. What more could I ask for, doing something I was totally passionate about, documenting a special day for a special couple.

The day seemed to past too quickly, I suppose when we are having fun, time always seems to just fly past us at warp speed!

Thank you Amanda and Kieran for sharing such a fantastic day with me. Thanks also to Charlene for assisting me.
