Katie + Ed

Welcome to the wedding of the oh-my-gosh-could-they-be-any-darn-cuter Katie and Ed.

Two remarkable things happened on the day of this wedding. I hadn’t seen a horse up close and personal for years, and I actually had to pinch myself when one arrived at the reception (it was like seeing a unicorn, so rare for us city slickers!), and I discovered Flinders (“have you been living under a rock?!” I hear you all gasp! “no, I’m just from Queensland!” I reply).

Oh – and Flinders is so super cute that people just decorate the bus shelters for the sheer heck of it. Whatta place!

A lot of couples who we work with are the kind who hate having their photos taken. That’s the way we like it too. I actually don’t know what we would do if we ever had a couple who really enjoyed posing…probably giggle uncomfortably! But what we loved about Katie and Ed is that they weren’t posers, they were just super duper comfortable ┬ábecause their wedding was so them. The more we do this, the more we realise that’s key. These guys love their wine, family and Ed loves to surf. So they chose to hold their reception at a winery near the beach with their absolute nearest and dearest. The vibe was just gorgeous. There was no fuss, no stress and plenty of time for us to capture such a rich variety of some of our favourite bridal portraits ever.

Welcome to the wedding of Katie & Ed!

Love Katie & Sarah xo

Summer + Omar

As you might expect, we meet with every couple who is interested in booking us just to make sure we all gel and to discuss all the exciting plans for the big day. Summer and Omar were the first couple we had ever dealt with that simply emailed us and said “We want to book you”. Somehow I didn’t really believe these people could possibly exist. It was such a leap of faith! But sure enough, the deposit came through and we marked their day down in our diaries.

It’s a truly amazing gesture when a couple trust in your abilities to do your thing. They’ve seen what you can do, they like it, the decision is made. Their confidence gives you confidence.

We finally met Summer and Omar the day before their wedding in a cruisy little buddhist cafe and we all. just. clicked.

The conversation flowed, and it felt like we’d always known each other. They told us all about their big day, and we started to get pretty darn excited. Red love hearts were the running theme of the day, their were guests flying in from all over the place, and when we saw their amazing invitations we knew just how much thought, time, and work had gone into their wedding.

Part way through the conversation I felt compelled to tell Omar how much he looked like my husband Justin. The similarity was absolutely crazy – same build, same manner, same clothes, same glasses. I fished out a picture of Justin to show him, and Omar just says “I know your husband”. I was like “What?!” he’s like “Yeah, we used to hang out all the time!”. I was like “NO!!! How come I never knew about you?!” it was the weirdest small world moment ever. Sure enough I went home to Justin that night and told him the story, and his response was as if I’d told him his favourite high school bud had just walked out of an underground mine, alive after missing for ten years – “DJ OMAR?!!!!!” he gasped. DJ Omar, indeed.

And now, it’s time for you to meet this glorious couple as well…

Love Katie & Sarah xo

Snapshot ~ Katie + Ed

Here’s a lovely little snapshot of a wedding we shot down on the Mornington Peninsular one gorgeous day last December. When we first met up with Ed that morning, he started to complain about the weather. Sarah and I stopped in our tracks. For us, it was the best possible weather you could ask for to photograph in; no wind, soft light. When we told him he was a little crazy, he looked a bit glum before telling us that the lack of wind had made for a poor surf that morning! We will be posting the full story in the next week or two, but why not share a little of the love right now? After all, Sarah and I are celebrating Valentine’s Day all week long!

Love Katie + Sarah xo
