I’ve had to speak with two brides who’s weddings have been automatically cancelled by this fortnight lockdown. It’s a difficult time for anyone planning a wedding right now in general, but my heart really goes out to these two couples. That being said I’m so impressed by their ability to roll with the punches and start planning a new date. We will come out of this stronger and better in the end. Sooner rather than later would be nice though 🙂

I used to love comics. The medium is such a goldmine for nailing a visual narrative. I often think of my shoots this way. Ending a shoot on a good sign off frame is a nice way to close the story. Here’s an example from warmer days.

Found a driveway just south of Palm beach. Doing my best to mimick an old world 8x10 large format camera with this one. If that’s mumbo jumbo - imagine those cameras where you have to stick your head under a large hooded piece of cloth. #sydneyweddingphotographer ...

Moments before entering the reception in the @sydneyoperahouseaustralia

Often the times you think nobody’s watching are the most compelling of all. This photo wasn’t set up. I was rushing to the reception to prepare for the “announcement” photos when I spotted the unaware couple having a quiet moment. No matter what beautiful locations I go to, often my favourite photos from the day are way left field - just like this one - under a down light (which normally are not a photographers friend) in a corridor of one of the most beautiful buildings in the world - that never made the cut for this post.

A sparkling kiss to end the days photography. Sometimes I’m not always around to the very end of a wedding (my smallest package is 5hrs). In these instances it’s nice to have a final frame with a bit of punch to end the story on a high. Sparklers are a great way of doing this. Photographed at the lovely @fernbankfarm
