Mary-Kate & Lionel | Wedding

Mary-Kate & Lionel were married last weekend on a truly spectacular Sydney day! You might remember them from their engagement session back in February.

Funny story: When putting together the run sheet for the wedding, we decided it was best for me to stop by the church on the way to the boys getting ready to get a few detail shots & a big wide one of the whole church empty. When I arrived however, there was a completely random groom standing at the top of the aisle, & I walked in paparazzi style on him. I had family coming up to me asking if I was the photographer and could I take this photo or that. Needless to say, took a few giant steps backward and got out of there ASAP!

I’d met Megan of Makeup By Megan a few times before at industry events, so it was great to finally get to work with her :)

The Ceremony was held at Mary Immaculate in Waverly, it’s such a beautiful church! So airy and light :)

I love this next one so much, I think it adds a lot of depth to a religious ceremony.

After the ceremony we headed to Centennial Park for an hour for some photos in the most divine light ever!

The reception was an all-night cocktail party in the Bride’s family home. Lanterns strung in the trees, dancing on the grass, it was outdoor wedding heaven!

While there’s nothing new about a groom removing the garter with his teeth, somehow, this little 2 year old missed the memo & wouldn’t have a bar of it!

Jimmy & Summer

Last week, I met Jamie & Marty, along with their gorgeous newborn son Jimmy and 3 year old daughter Summer to capture this new and exciting time in their life.

At the start of the session, Jamie was asking what sorts of outfits she should dress Jimmy in, to which I replied, ‘there’s nothing cuter than a naked baby’.  Jimmy wasn’t consulted in this however, and showed very firm opposition to being naked. I didn’t even get a single shot in. While he was off getting fed and settled, I decided to sit with his big sister Summer, sans camera, to have a bit of a chat so she could get used to me before I took any photos of her. She was sitting in the kitchen at her little kiddies table eating some Vegemite on toast, when I sat down. She looked at me for a few seconds, looked down at her toast, looked at me again and then slid the plate as far away from me as she possibly could. I liked her immediately. No words were necessary. I understood perfectly. I’d have to earn every smile. Challenge accepted.

Once fed & re-dressed, Jimmy was a much more relaxed, but never more so than with mums hand on his belly. It’s amazing what that small touch does for a baby’s sense of security.

Summer sat in on her bed and watched me with Jimmy, and I could see she was getting interested. As soon as he was off feeding again, I turned the camera to her and she loved it – especially when I showed her the pictures on screen. She gave me a great bunch of expressions, toothy grins, laugh out loud and pure innocence. When it was time for me to go, she ran over and gave me a hug. I won :)

Once we decided there was enough in the can, we had a last ditch attempt at some naked shots & succeeded!! I think the ones where his arms are behind his head are the most relaxed from the entire shoot. Too cute.

Jamie & Marty, it was lovely to meet you and your beautiful kiddies. Hope you love these as much as I do!
