Stunning Maternity Timeline…

It was so special taking the progress photos for Melissa.  Melissa and Ben lived in NT and started their timeline photos with Louisa Sams Photography.  When Melissa and Ben made the move to Melbourne during their pregnancy I was so pleased to be able to continue the progress photos.  I’ve just finished creating their timeline collage and I am so pleased with the end result!!!

Tucks Ridge Wedding – Kirstie and Ben

A crazy Melbourne weather day…storms…hail…wind and rain.  It all added to the challenge of the day and we definitely made the most of it!  A great team effort between suppliers (and the assistance of the rain radar on the smart phones) meant we held off the ceremony for 10 minutes so we could set it up outside and have an outside ceremony!!  It was a little chilly, but looked magnificent and is exactly what Kirstie and Ben wanted for their day!

Peninsula Kingswood Golf Club – Christie and Travis

Two years in advance Christie and Travis booked me as their wedding photographer.  We did a pre-wedding photo session at Mornington beach which was great for them to use their photos on their “Save the Date” cards.   Their ceremony was at St Lukes Church, Frankston and their reception was at the Peninsula Kingswood Golf Club.  Surrounded by such lovely family and friends it was such a great wedding day and I am thrilled I had the honour of sharing their special day with them.

Mornington Peninsula Wedding – Bianca and Adam

I love it when a bride and groom have a unique vision for their day.  After an intimate ceremony we spent the day going to some of my favourite locations on the Mornington Peninsula.  It was so rare to not have a time limit for wedding photos…it was amazing!!  Gunnamatta beach was the final location we chose – with perfect timing for sunset.  Other locations included Rye, Flinders and Cape Schanck.

Mercure Portsea Golf Club and Resort – Nichola and Chris

An island princess is what first came to mind when Nichola put her flower crown on!  Simply Stunning.  A fun-filled, relaxed wedding day with such lovely family and friends.

We had planned to take some photos at Portsea Back Beach, but it was super windy so we decided to go to the sheltered bay beach instead.  The day was perfect and I’m so honoured to be the one to share and capture the day with them.

I cannot wait to photograph at this venue again in a few weeks!

Mercure Portsea Golf Club and Resort – Vicki and Simon

A sensational wedding location in Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula.   A hidden little gem with such amazing photo opportunities and lovely staff!!!  After a beautiful ceremony on the lawn on the golf course we popped in the stunning limo from LR Limousines and went to the Portsea Pier.  We had one quick stop at Point Nepean to take some photos with the limo and then headed back to Portsea Golf Club.  We took some photos around the course and then they joined their guests for their reception.

Stillwater at Crittenden Estate, Dromana – Melissa and Aaron

After an emotional ceremony in Keysborough we drove in the rain to Dromana where we had beautiful blue skies.  Melissa wore a simply stunning dress and looked amazing.   The bridal party were alot of fun and I had a great time capturing it all.

One of the chefs at Stillwater was one of my past grooms – he also got married at Stillwater and loved it so much he wanted to work there.  Their food is simply outstanding.

Another date with the unique Bumblebee Limo and a venue with a million dollar view – it was a wonderful wedding day on the Mornington Peninsula.

Baxter Barn Wedding – Leanne and Alex

Leanne and Alex had so many crazy things happen to them during their wedding planning process…but their day was simply perfect.  Baxter Barn is only two minute drive from me and it is such a brilliant venue.  The rustic barn was covered with fairy lights, flowers and styled decorations – mostly created by the talented bride herself.

One of Leanne’s bridesmaids was a past bride of Bright Eyes Photography.  She was such a trooper – with a broken leg only just before the wedding she still “wheeled” down the aisle in her wheelchair and was a fantastic bridesmaid.
