Alice & James | Wedding

I don’t even know where to begin to tell you about how incredible it was to be a part of Alice & James’ wedding. One of those days where you make it to the end and pinch yourself that you were there. A day where traditions weren’t included for tradition’s sake. Every single thing that happened, happened for a reason and was perfectly personalised so the day was 100% uniquely them.

Alice & James were married at Currawong Reserve in Palm Beach, before a reception at the Avalon Sailing Club.

We started the day, getting ready at an incredible house in Clareville overlooking Pittwater…and the story continues as we work our way through the photographs.

I loved that they didn’t let gender get in the way of having their closest friends in the bridal party.

The day was packed full of thoughtful touches, including beginning the ceremony with an Acknowledgement of Country and little surprises like “Alice, you may kiss the groom!”

Everyone should look this happy as they walk back down the aisle!

After the ceremony, we stuck around Currawong Reserve for a some portraits, before moving on to the Palm Beach ferry wharf.

James and Alice chartered ‘The Elvina’ to take us from Palm Beach to the Avalon Sailing Club for the reception, and it was so much more special than it appears at first. You see, James’ grandfather spent decades driving this exact ferry to and from Church Point. So it really was a wonderful and unique way to remember him.

Chasing Arrows did an absolutely brilliant job styling the reception.

It seemed like everyone at the wedding could sing and/or play an instrument. So many talented friends!

The perfect speech should be equal parts lovely, funny & embarrassing!

Alice & James | Engaged

I met up with Alice & James to photograph their engagement session at Clareville for an afternoon of fun by the water. It’s always so nice to hang out with my couples for a few hours and get to know each other better before the wedding. I get to see how you interact as a couple, and you get a beautiful set of images, win-win!

After a while, we headed north to Palm Beach for a few more photos, and to crack a bottle of champagne…because, why not!

Levi & Zoe | Family Portraits

Today we have the super fun lifestyle session of the insanely adorable Levi & Zoe along with their incredibly lovely parents. We spent time playing in the sand and watching (and running from!) the waves at Palm Beach, huge tickles, tricycle riding and watching the sunset over Pittwater in a teepee.

Good friends Morgan & Katie were on hand for a bit of kid wrangling so Katty & Luke could have a few portraits of themselves as a couple.
