Hats off to these guys. The weather worked against us at all the worst times and did put a spanner in the works, but we carried on and the spirits stayed high. We had a great time during the shoot and overall I think that rain added to the atomosphere of the day. It had been a while since being at St Matthews church in Drayton but it is a still a cute little chapel and photographs fantastically, even in the rain. There was plenty to keep the boys entertained today, with Michaels bike, his dads shelby cobra and a fluro green hot rod. Overall a great day and some fantastic results thanks to the heavy cloud cover and dramatic skies.
After just the first few photos that I took today, I knew it was going to be a good day. Everything was going just as I imagined. I especially love the shot of Louise with the reflections in the mirrors. No photoshop here either for all those out there who thought I might have cheated. As I mentioned everything was going swimmingly, even the weather was on our side which is rare given the last few weeks. The gardens at Gips restaurant always looks amazing and provided a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. We headed off to the park, threw some leaves around, had a beer, drank some wine and set off to our second photo stop. Plenty of room to spread out, get some shots with the cars and take some time out before heading back to the reception. Congratulations to you guys and thank you for letting me a part of your big day. P.S Just one more brother to go now. Pressure's on Sam!!
I was looking forward to another shoot at the Empire. It's been a while since i have done a wedding in the Empire Chapel but it looked spectacular as usual. Damien and the boys were all chilled despite a slight wardrobe malfunction, but luckily one of the guys had a pocket knife in hand and took care of it. It's not as bad as it sounds. We headed into the theatre to get some photos and i'm still getting new ideas every time i go there. Love it. Probably the highlight for me was the 'uber' style shot I did with these guys. Damiens pose cracks me up. Congrats guys and thanks for making today such a fun shoot.
After getting some great shots during their engagement shoot i was really looking forward to Bradley and Renatas wedding. With the wedding being in the morning the girls had an early start but by the time i arrived the coffee had obviously kicked in and everyone was looking chirpy. After the ceremony we headed to Glen Alpine homestead for our photo session and luckily we had an indoor location coz the weather turned nasty not long after we arrived. But never the less we pushed on and got some great results. Even got some shots of the cars for Brad.
Wow. What a day. Talk about extremes. When I arrived in Warwick the temperature was 38 degrees and by the time the ceremony was due to start at 4pm, the temp had dropped by 15 degrees and we had monsoonal rain and even a little bit of hail. Once the rain has finished the wind came. But to Josh and Chantal's credit they didn't let it phase them and we ended up having a great day. I love going to new locations and getting some new inspiration and the Warwick railway station was great. And we even had a break in the weather. Congratulations guys and I know in five years time you will be alughing about the crazy weather.
