As we all know, a Wedding Day is usually all about the Bride (and of course she deserves it! Don't get me wrong) but it is always a bonus when the Groom and his Groomsmen can have the spotlight for a few moments and we create some amazing and really cool shots for the boys too. Most Grooms and Groomsmen dread photographs on the day and worry about having really corny or cliche photos, where they are awkwardly posed. But when we create something really unique and that suits their interests, their entire attitude to their photos change and they get really excited about them and tell people about their image throughout the Wedding Day. I absolutely love these sorts of shots and they become even better when the boys are really into making the shot perfect.

Anthony's Dad had the perfect pool room set up, so how could I pass up doing something like this? So I set up the shot with Anthony, his two brothers (who were also his groomsmen) and his Dad. They all absolutely loved this image and couldn't stop talking about it. Anthony's Dad now has this image as a huge framed print, up on the wall in that very same pool room!

I seriously love photographing the boys with cigars, they usually all get really excited that they actually get to have a cigar and then even more excited when they see the finished image of what we created.

Another way to incorporate the Groom and his interests into your wedding photographs is by choosing locations that represent your Groom or his interests. Some ideas are the Beach if he likes fishing or surfing, a Golf Course if loves to play golf, a really cool Bar if he wants somewhere more laid back and funky, or even somewhere that has boats or yachts if he likes boating. Pauline and Matt both love the beach and boats, so they had their reception at the Fremantle Maritime Museum, so we could go in and create some really unique images with the yachts around them. 

Dave and Danielle are obsessed with the beach and were married in Esperance, so on the morning of their wedding day, I met Dave down at the beach where he was having a quick fish and captured some really different images of him on the rocks fishing.

The gorgeous Dani & Dave were married in Esperance. It was such an incredible location with so many beautiful beaches and places to shoot. Last week they picked up their stunning Wedding Album to take to its forever home! They decided to go with a classic and timeless black genuine leather cover with their names and wedding date embossed in black. They loved it so much, that Dani was even in tears as she looked through it.. which is the best reaction I can get!

This means it is printed on gorgeous premium Fine Art Paper, that has a very soft and luxurious feel, it also makes the colours and images POP even more!

Last month I was lucky enough to photograph a seriously gorgeous couple's Wedding Day! Their Wedding was so unique and beautiful. They decided to have a very simple and intimate ceremony at their home, only surrounded by closes friends and family, followed by champagne and canapés with their guests. 
We then went off and spent the afternoon with the new Bride & Groom, creating some beautiful and romantic images of them together. These are just a few little teasers from the day... many more to come!

You may remember one of my beautiful recent Bride's, Lee-Anne, who married her partner Neil in March. Lee-Anne was suddenly diagnosed with brain and lung cancer in mid March and was given a devastating prognosis. So Lee-Anne's incredible sister-in-law and brother-in-law, immediately jumped into action and put out a call to all Perth wedding suppliers, to volunteer their services and products. Amazingly they were able to organise an entire wedding within a week, so that Lee-Anne and Neil could marry and to give Lee-Anne the wedding that she never had. I was honoured to be able to capture the day for them and share their special memories. It was such a beautiful and emotional day. 

Last week I received some very sad news, that Lee-Anne had lost her battle with cancer. 

She was such a beautiful person and just so sweet. Neil and her family were all so lovely to work with. My thoughts are with them all and I am so sad to hear the news.

Having a past client recommend me to their Family & Friends is definitely the greatest compliment anyone could ever give me. A couple of years ago, I photographed the gorgeous Jasmin & Liam's Wedding Day at Caversham House. Their family were all so wonderful and so much fun to work with! So when Jasmin's sister, Lisa was planning her Wedding Day to Michael, they wanted me to photograph their special day. 

Lisa & Michael were married in an outdoor ceremony, in the most beautiful setting, overlooking the water. Their ceremony was so sweet and had so much love! After their ceremony, we continued onto the Cottesloe Beach Hotel, where their reception was held later that evening, for photographs. The light in the late afternoon on the beach was incredible and just amazing for photographs! The perfect golden light is so romantic and warm.
