Ellen & Tim | Wedding

Bright and early last Friday morning I flew down to Canberra to spend the weekend with Beata English & assist her in shooting Ellen & Tim’s gorgeous wedding.

The weather was simply perfect, enough cloud to keep it cool, enough sun to make the light amazing (just wait until you see the sunset!).

How lucky are they to have a friend who owns a Cadillac!

I love watching Page Boys & Flower Girls during ceremonies; it’s hilarious seeing how they keep themselves entertained :)

Fun fact: Jane, Ellen’s sister & bridesmaid was actually one of the bridesmaids last time I photographed a wedding with Beata :)

Words cannot express how excited I was when I saw the two rakes laying in the bunker. I’ve always wanted to do a take on American Gothic! I’m sure Ellen & Tim thought I was nuts when I suggested it, but I’m so happy they went along with it. This is hands down my favourite shot of the day :)

2011 | The Year That Was

2011 was a brilliant year. I loved every second of it. Looking back now, I’m realising just how far I traveled and how many incredible places I’ve been, both here in Australia and overseas. I’ve met some amazing people on the way and wouldn’t change a single thing.

Here’s my journey through 2011!

It started with a bang!

Followed by a few days in Fiji to celebrate my 29th birthday (stay tuned for a Fiji wedding in June 2012!!)

The Fisherman & I headed overseas again for 8 magical nights in Thailand – fishing, snorkeling, kayaking and a little lazing by the pool!

If you’ve followed this blog for a while, these little fellas need no introduction – I caught up with my sister & twin nephews a bunch of times, including their first ever trip to the beach.

Carly & Michael’s engagement session at Freshwater was simply perfect, and I can’t wait for their March 2012 wedding here on the Northern Beaches!

Finally, the year wrapped up with a Destination Elopement at Ayers Rock! I really hope it was the first of many.

As the sun sets for the last time in 2011, I sometimes can’t believe I get to be so lucky to do this for a living.

A special thank you to all my clients, you’ve made 2011 so much more than I’d hoped. Thanks also to my photographer friends for inviting me along on to share in your own journeys.

Cheers to a bigger and better 2012 :)
