After the ceremony, we headed to Balmoral for the lunchtime reception, but before heading in, we spent a few minutes on the pier.

Homemade Fig Jam and potted succulents made up the favours. I love little details outside the box.

At the end of the reception, a water taxi arrived to take them to their hotel in the city. The sun was just beginning to set and the light looked incredible. Caterina & Ade asked me if I wanted to join them for the ride and take a few more portraits and I jumped at the chance. The results were amazing!

Luana & Michael | Wedding

Luana & Michael were married in Canberra last month and it really was an incredible day to photograph. A vibrant wedding packed full of tradition and culture!

I started with Michael & the Boys & got so excited when this is what I saw when I walked in the front door.

I love when couples organise gifts for each other to open as they’re getting ready.

Just as Luana finished getting ready, and a bunch of relatives arrived, 2 Lebanese drummers walked through the door and the atmosphere skyrocketed!

Cherie & Robert | Wedding

Here are a few images from Cherie & Robert’s gorgeous Sydney Wedding I recently photographed with Caspix.

We started out with Cherie & the girls in Five Dock as they were finishing up with the hair & make up. I loved her hair piece!
