When Emma and her partner Liam first contacted me, I knew that this would be one unforgettable wedding. We discussed the finer details over coffee, and I was left beaming with excitement. Their day would be truly magical. Emma & Liam are one of the happiest and loveliest couples I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Emma, is also one of the most talented creatives I’ve met (you can see all her stunning crafts below, including the bridesmaids dresses – amazing!). I could see how important wedding photography was to both of them. Not only was I incredibly honoured that they wanted me as their photographer, but completely ecstatic that I could share there story.
Emma & Liam’s wedding was held in the lush and dreamlike grounds of Oakdene Vineyards, Barwon Heads. Nestled neatly behind the grapevines, was an old and once forgotten barnyard shed. Rustic and raw, eclectic bric-a-brac was dotted throughout the scene – a bowerbird’s nest of beautiful colour and design. Thanks to the talents of Emma & Liam, this once forgotten barnyard breathed a new life of its own. As the crowds of families and friends rolled in, the room lit up with excitement and anticipation. As Emma made her way down the aisle with her father, the room was quiet but the crowds faces told reflected so much. There was so much love for these two people.
I’ve shot a lot of weddings since Emma & Liam’s amazing day. Looking back at the images, it makes me realise how much these two really stuck with me. The laughter. The love for family and friends. Its been a year and a half down since I started my journey, I am completely blown away by opportunities I’ve been given. It’s people like Emma & Liam, that make me so ever grateful that I am here doing what I love.
