Seriously whats not to love about this shoot? The location was beautiful and my couple was as down to earth as they come. These two cuties are getting hitched on NEW YEARS EVE in the bush and I honestly cant wait to document it!!
I love these two like family. Yes ok so I am technically related to the Groom but we didn’t really gel until Cara came into the scene. Once in the picture I claimed her as my cousin and the 4 of us (Shane, Cara, my husband + I) have been hanging out as family + friends ever since.
Shane + Cara are honestly a match made in heaven and Im not just saying that to be corny. They compliment each other perfectly and push each other to be the best person they can be. Recently I have watched my cousin Shane change his is career path* completely supported by his now wife. This was a massive change but definitely the right one which might not have happened if Cara wasn’t around.
*if you’re in the market for a real estate agent in Mornington Peninsula look this guy up he is going to be a big name someday (if he is not already)
Their wedding day was an image of classic beauty and I wouldn’t have excepted anything different from the ever stylish Cara (wearing a dress from Karen Willis Holmes). Franklin Coffee made sure the guests were kept warm during the Winter affair which was held at Cara High School, Toorak College in Mt Eliza. The reception was amazing as its not often I get to shoot (and eat) at a chefs hat restaurant (Port Phillip Estate) decorated by one of my favourite florists (Poppy Culture) hashtag WINNING!
Im so excited to share these images as I was truely honoured to be Shane + Cara’s photographer and loved snapping their special day…
I love Chinese weddings especially when you get to celebrate your wedding with your family and loved ones ALL day long! A traditional tea ceremony is a beautiful gesture that shows respect and gratitude to the bride + grooms elders on their special day. Hayley + Ray were such a wonderful couple to work with and from the moment I walked in the door on their wedding day I felt as though I was a part of their family. This is why I love weddings and why I love my couples so much. Its such a wonderful experience not only documenting someones day but being apart of it. Thank you Hayley + Ray for having me apart of you wedding x
