Destination Wedding

Although I am not shooting many weddings anymore, there is one type of wedding I will always LOVE to be a part of – a Destination Wedding!

One such wedding was Amanda and Morgwn’s wedding in March. I didn’t travel far, just down to Canberra, but it was great having a change of scenery.

Amanda and Morgwn had their entire wedding at Canberra’s Hyatt Hotel. Elegant sophistication accompanied this couple’s day from beginning to end. Coupled with a fun loving bridal party and close knit family, this wedding will be a difficult one to forget.  

Thank you to Amanda and Morgwn and their families for hosting me and my assistant in Canberra for the wedding weekend. Can’t wait to get the album together for you – it will be gorgeous. In the meantime, a few sneak peeks to enjoy.

New Vintage Art Style Album for 2013

Before I post to recap the year that was next week, I wanted to show you this new exciting album for 2013 for weddings and portraits alike.

It’s our new Art Style/Vintage Style Album, uniquely handcrafted with lush fabrics and using binding techniques which you would swear you were picking up an old artist’s sketch book.

This album is printed on traditional art paper, textured or smooth, and the pages can be finished with either an old-fashioned torn edge or kept straight and clean-cut. 

What I love about it is the depth and contrast this paper adds to the images. They literally POP off the page with intense, striking colours.

The sample we have in the studio has a Dupion Silk cover, but we also love the Hemp materials available and genuine leather.

Here is our studio sample. Love!
