Backyard Wedding

A very lo-key wedding in a suburban backyard in Melbourne. It was a very intimate atmosphere...oh and the Punch and the Gumbo were ...killer!

Our favourite MUA

Silvana Mitkovski asked us to do her a favour and help out with a hair and make up competition she's entering. So being obliging chaps we said OK. These are straight out of the camera, which goes to show what a great make up artist can do. Natural light.

We don't usually do expos, but when we do...

We spent the weekend at the Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne. People seemed a little taken aback when we told them that, yes, we are the actual photographers. Seems that it's usual for companies to employ people to work the stand at expos. I guess it would be nice to stay at home and fire up the BBQ, but it's also nice to meet people who are interested in what we do.

The Groom

Usually when we get to the Grooms house to shoot them prior to the big moment, they are nervous, quiet and spend a lot of time trying to figure out how that damn carnation is supposed to stay on

....and then there was Al....

The Guests

Yes we shoot the beautiful Bride.
Yes we shoot the handsome Groom.
But we also shoot the awesome people that make the wedding itself. The Guests.

Delhi Wedding

We were privileged to be asked photograph the wonderful wedding of Tanisha and Sumer in New Delhi. It had everything. A beautiful Bride, a gallant Groom arriving on horseback, spectacular venues. We covered four days of non-stop ceremonial and partying action from the Mehendhi to the final ceremony. Rich in colour, texture and the best baked lobster we have EVER tasted. A very big thank you to the Gambhir's for looking after us and treating like we were one of the family. We had a ball.!

The Flying Veil

We generally are fans of dramatic skies, and when there is a stiff breeze and a large veil, all the better. Except while we were getting this veil to 'sing', it decided that it would rather be in the bay!

Profoto AcuteB

Rom and I recently blew our lunch money on a couple of Profoto AcuteB portable strobes. It usually take alot to get me impressed by gear, but the ease of use, the reliability of the remote triggers and the quality of light are on a whole other level.

Which doesn't mean we don't do available light anymore. It's just that we have a whole lot more light available to us when we need it.

St Kilda Beach

The weekend before the St Kilda Festival was cold and blustery, but the clouds were awesome! Thanks to Anna and Stephen for being such good sports. Because the weather was so bad (great for photography though) there were very few people, which made things a whole lot easier. Silver linings and all that sort of thing.

An Australian bush wedding

What a day! Searing heat but everyone still managed big smiles all weekend for Ben and Rebecca.
Only a couple of years ago this area near Alexandra in Victoria was threatened by the Black Saturday bushfires. Rebecca's native Canada is probably under a few feet of snow this time of year.

Chris and Sarah. Melbourne

Chris and Sarah, after we did a pre shoot for this couple, the real deal was effortless as we got to know them when it came to the wedding date. We arranged a combination of a garden setting and the beach for their portraits. The weather was absolutely disgusting, however, we always like to make the most the dramatic sky.
