Navin & Elly. Warehouse Wedding at the Substation, Melbourne.

At a Sunglass Hut, 2 colleagues meet for the first time. Her first impression is he looks like Usher. As fate would have it, they get along like a house on fire.5 years later, Navin & Elly are planning a wedding - it's everything like a wedding but at the same time, is nothing like a wedding - a charcoal dress, black flowers, exposed brick, high ceilings, Indian food & of course, Usher-like dance moves.

They tell me they don't have many photos together as neither of them feel particularly photogenic. I smile, tell them not to worry and just to focus on having the most fun on their special day. I'd like to think the moments show them at their truest - a combination of vibrant, striking tones and making each other laugh unexpectedly.

"I'm not sure how to thank you - they are so beautiful, and it's been so wonderful reliving the day. I cannot thank you enough. This is everything we wanted." - Navin & Elly.

Bennett & Jasmine. Date Night Wedding at FOC Sentosa, Singapore.

Tuesday - an otherwise ordinary day.  Not the start of the week, not the middle nor the end.  But Krystin & I got together on a Tuesday, and married on a Tuesday evening. So it brought a smile to my face when Bennett & Jasmine said they were getting married on a Tuesday, for the simple reason that it was their weekly date night.

 

And their celebration turned out to be the best night - they asked their guests to dress as they would for a date, and everyone joined in to enjoy the paella station, sangria on tap, and a cake of cheese tiers, with the couple's favourite blue, topped with figs.

Jasmine & Bennett also made delicious smelling soy candles, and named them Melbourne Date Night, reminiscent of the peppermint tea they share every night and Ben's proposal in Melbourne, in a lavendar farm.

Here's to many more wonderful date nights, Bennett & Jasmine, and at the close of each day, saying goodnight instead of goodbye.

 

"Thank you incredibly so! We looked through the photos in such detail last night and we are in awe of your talent and your point of view. The images are so clean and timeless and we reallly are in love! The colours and tones are exactly as we remember them to be, (maybe through our rose tinted view of the day haha) and we love how organic and natural everything feels. The morning photos before everything began have a special spot in our hearts, the light and captured love (and kosmo) are amazing, and as we are in the same place every day, that makes it even more special- a reminder to love extravagantly in the every day.

Thank you for picking up all the in betweens, the intentional edits to bring out subtleties that we didn't even realise could be significant in telling such a compelling, moving story of the day. Thank you for capturing laughter, tears, reactions, cheers, high fives, steps, words, gazes, textures and so much more that we couldn't absorb on the day of. Thank you for being such a sport, allowing us to be our goofy selves and journeying with us through the day with an open mind, of not putting us in a box and for letting us try the peppers and piña like a friend would! We couldn't have imagined the day without you, and thanks to you, we get to relive the day again and again. " - Jasmine & Bennett

Simon & Anna. Wedding in the Woods.

My son, Noah was due to be born on the 20th of Feb, 5 days before Simon & Anna's big day. When we found out we were pregnant, I let Simon & Anna know about the possibility that I might not be able to be at their wedding and gave them the option to go with another photographer. Their response was they really wanted me to be part of their big day so were happy to take the risk. 25th of February came and there will still no signs of Noah reliving my wife Krystin of the burden of carrying him. I arrived at Simon's nervous & slightly anxious & informed him about the possibility that I might need to leave at any time in case Krystin goes into labour. And I will always remember Simon's response, he said to me "won't that be an awesome story!" Thankfully (or not so thankfully for my poor wife), Noah graced us 5 days later and I managed to be part of their big day from start to finish.

So the story on the 25th of February started with a reflection of Simon & Anna's faith at Kilsyth Baptist Church followed by a reception nestled under the tall trees of Dandenong Ranges. It was all about good food (not to mention, an awesome donut table), fun & dorky activities and relaxed vibes amongst friends & family.

Simon & Anna, thanks for trusting me but more importantly, for exercising faith despite the odds.

“Jon was so great! He made everything so clear and easy on the day and beforehand too. Our biggest concern was feeling or looking really awkward when it came to the photos but Jon was so relaxed and calm that it couldn't have felt easier. To then get our photos back and get so much joy from looking at them - what more could we ask for?” - Simon & Anna
