Its really is a fun job that allows Nat & I to spend the day with a loving couple on whats most likely the happiest day of their life. Ok I know that might sound over the top and sales pitchy but its true. We get to see the nervous bride, the grooms first glimpse of his bride, the first kiss and all the happy family & friends that surround them on the day. It sure does beat the day job as a way to put food on the table. Recently we had the great please of photographing Jaime & Lee, who got married at Mindarie Marina here in Western Australia. Jamie & Lee took a risk planning a wedding in the middle of an Australian summer, but it worked out great for them. It wasn't too hot and the sky a little overcast. The day was perfect. After the ceremony and the family shots we escaped to a near by beach where we where able to get some great images of the newly weds.
This blog has taken a lot longer to get going then I ever planned, but now I think it is ready. Its still a little lean on but over the next month or so I hope to change that. So I came to thinking its been not weeks but a month or 2 since I last grabbed my DSLR and even fired the shutter. Sometimes real life just gets in the way and this has been the case for me and still will be for a little while. But last Sunday came and after buying my son a pair of bright red wellington boots for winter puddles during the week it was time for him to try them out. Being West Australia we rarely get winter puddles so a trip to the beach on a cool but bright sunny day was called for.

During the winter we like to try different things. Landscapes, HDR, anything and everything that looks good but is different to weddings. Last year I was introduced to a website called Model Mayhem A place where models, photographs make artists etc can come together and trade time for time. True some people charge but we use it as a place to find models so we can try out new ideas are try photographs we also wanted to do. Last year we met Adele who was great to work with and had a unique look about her. It was a lot of fun. We are currently organising a new model shot for a few weeks time soo stay tuned
