Meet the super cutie Cooper.

I shot Trent & Candy’s beautiful wedding towards the end of last year, and although you can’t really tell from the photos, she was 7 months pregnant at the time with this little fella.

A few Sunday’s ago, I headed over to Gladesville to deliver their album, and did a mini session with their new addition. The weather didn’t play nice, and we spent the whole time indoors, but with these eyes and that smile, what’s not to love :)

Every time he crawled up to me, he kept on reaching for the lens. I love how he’s staring right into it :)

Trent & Candy | Wedding

Trent & Candy have been together almost 4 years, just a few weeks longer than The Fisherman & I. It’s been great fun getting to know them both individually and as a couple over that time. You see, Trent & The Fisherman were apprentices together about a dozen years ago & still catch up regularly to go fishing (Trent seems to be a bit of a lucky charm, as they always seem to come back with tonnes more fish than when I go…but that’s another story!).

Whenever I tell the story of how Trent proposed to Candy, about 1/2 the people laugh and say its fantastic, the other half gasp and ask what he was thinking…

It goes a little something like this. Trent & Candy regularly go for walks down to the water at Gladesville & sit perched on a particular rock to watch the sunset. This particular day, seemed no stranger than any other. They’re both sitting on the rock when Trent spies a plastic bag on the ground. He starts ranting about how careless people are with the environment and all that, when he reaches into the bag and pulls out the ring he’d stashed earlier.

I always think the best proposal stories are the ones where it’s completely unexpected in the moment, not one of the ones that the girl is crying for 5 minutes before he can get the words out. I’m pretty sure, in amongst the plastic bag tirade, there was no way on earth Candy would have anticipated what came next.

The wedding day itself was spectacular, gorgeous skies and hot! Both the ceremony and reception were held at Banjo Paterson Cottage Restaurant, Gladesville. It’s such a stunning old venue, not to mention the view!

Trent was so cool and calm before the Ceremony, mingling with everyone as they arrived.

Candy got all teary as she got out of the car and spent a few minutes inside to get it together before things started.

She walked alone down the aisle towards Trent, and I love the photo of her father looking on.

During the ‘honour & obey’ part of the ceremony, Trent pulled a face & Candy lost it…for a good few minutes. It was hilarious.

The cupcakes were so yummy!

No more than 5 minutes after the cake was setup outside, it started to sprinkle & we hurriedly moved inside for few short speeches & oh so yummy cupcakes (that’s right, so yummy I had to say so twice!)

Trent & Candy, thank you so much for an awesome day!
