Hawthorn - Melbourne, Wedding - Bride arriving in a Bentley

Wedding photographers like me are lucky. We are privy to scenes like this which the groom doesn't even get to see on the day as they're usually at the location already, waiting at the altar. This was taken just as the bride was coming out of the car after arriving at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Hawthorn, Melbourne. Note her flowers too - beautiful David Austin roses!

Sydney, Wedding - Karla & Manuel's First Dance at Sargeants Mess

First dance is always the sweetest. Right? Right?

And it's always the details that one seem to remember most clearly. A little squeeze of your hands. A lingering touch. The slightest smile.

These were captured at Karla and Manuel's wedding at Sargeants Mess, Manly Sydney.

Sydney, Wedding - Karla and Manuel - Little Moments

They say that it's always the tiny, little moments that really count. Those are the one you'll always remember. 

A tiny squeeze of the hand. A quick, stolen kiss. A gentle, little peck on the forehead. 

Small actions in tiny fragments of time that communicate so much more thought possible. 

Isn't love wonderful?

Sydney, Engagement - Irene and Ryan's pre-wedding photography - Part I

Irene and Ryan engaged me for some pre-wedding photos a while ago back in April. They both live and work in Singapore and were originally from Malaysia. It's quite amazing when I think about how people are willing to make the leap of faith to engage a wedding photographer from another country, ie. Sydney, Australia - considering all the preparations that need to go into it before hand and the wedding gowns / suits they need to bring across borders! Nevertheless, that's what I'm here for. Planning everything from the itinerary of the day, locations, transport as well as advice on wardrobe. 

The day when we were scheduled to shoot was a disaster weather-wise as we had the biggest rainfall / thunderstorm that we've had in Sydney for a while.  With the both of them getting all wet and cold, and not being able to get the locations they want in their album, we tried to sneak in as many shots as we could and decided to call it a day. 

Here're some shots from the first day. Love the last shot!

Sydney, Wedding - Preview to Irene and Ryan's pre-wedding shoot

I like to take pictures when it rains. All the inconveniences and the risks of ruining my equipment aside (weather-sealed pro bodies no matter when it’s raining down buckets!), rain totally changes the mood of the pictures.
Here’s a preview of Irene and Ryan’s pre-wedding shoot. Can’t wait to show you the rest of it!
