rural bridal shoot

I first met Jasmine a couple of years back, shooting her year12 mini-session. Thanks to the wonder that is Facebook, we kept in touch, and late last year, she qualified as a make-up artist. One thing led to another, and when she was home recently, we collaborated on a couple of shoots.

The second shoot we did was a Thursday evening. Danielle and I headed out to Jasmine’s place, and commented on the storn hovering to the east. Never fear, said I, storms around here come from the west. It won’t worry us.

I watched Jasmine work her magic, helped Danielle step into the dress… and we felt the first spit of rain. oh. So it seems storms can come from the east after all! But we worked quickly, and managed to wrap up before the sky opened.

Make-up and hair by Jasmine Anderson.

Jasmine did a great job on hair and make-upbridal8bridal9

How cute are Danielle’s red shoes playing peek-a-boo?

And of course, how could we not feature the gorgeous cake in a couple of shots of it’s own? Kate did a great job, and the cake certianly lived up to Cake Crumbs promise of “delectable cakes made to order”… auch a wonderful mud cake.


So I lied…

…when I said in my initial teaser post from Jon and Ang’s wedding, that one of those images was my favourite wedding image.


*This* one is my favourite, with a late aternoon glow, and the beautiful Kings Plains Castle in the background:



And I’m a bit partial to this one, from earlier in the day, when Ang’s dad came in while the girls were getting ready


Ang & Jon :: Wedding

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of heading out to Kings Plains Castle between Inverell and Glen Innes, to photograph the wedding of Jon & Ang.  Beautiful weather, a great couple, a wonderful, intimate ceremony. All the elements for a perfect wedding.

I think this one is one of my favourite wedding shots ever!



Congratulations again, Jon & Ang. Your wedding was absolutely lovely, and it was an honour to be there to capture your special day.
