Great Expectations

It’s not often I get in front of the camera. In fact I feel quite uncomfortable having my photo taken – Im much more at home behind the lens! However as a photographer I do think its important to put yourself in the shoes of your clients from time to time.

Being on the verge of a life changing event in our lives, I thought a portrait session would be a fantastic way to capture this very special time in our lives. So I dragged Aaron along and my sister Steph (quite talented herself behind the lens!) took a few shots before bump becomes baby!

Kim & Ben: Married in Fiji x

This ones a real special one to me. Kim and Ben are great friends so I was so happy for them when they announced they were getting married. When they asked me to photograph their wedding, I was extremely honoured and very very excited! The fact that it was going to be in Musket Cove, Fiji was an added bonus!!

Apart from it being a truly intimate, relaxed and beautiful wedding on a stunning tropical island, what I loved most was how the majority of the guests trickled onto the island in the week lead up to the big day so everyone had the opportunity to get to know each other at various get togethers. This really added to the intimacy of their wedding day and made for one big fun party to celebrate!
