Anna & Anthony {Moree wedding}

I can’t think of a better way to get back into blogging my recent session, than with Anna & Anthony’s beautiful wedding. If you don’t follow me on Facebook, you may have missed their gorgeous farm engagement session back in June. Earlier this month, Moree turned on it’s best weather for my first wedding for the 2015/16 season.  I knew it was going to be an awesome day when I walked into the motel and discovered Anna is a girl after my own Austen-loving heart:

I love personal touches in weddings, and they don’t come much sweeter than this addition to Anna’s bouquet – her “something blue”, a beautiful ring gifted by her soon-to-be-mother-in-law stitched onto her bouquet:bouquet of flowers - Moree wedding

By “beat weathr”, of course, I mean stinking hot, as only Moree can be in October. It could have been worse though – while I was dressed in dark colours, I did have short sleeves, unlike these dapper gentlemen I found when I arrived at St Xavier’s Catholic Church:Moree groom and grromsmen outside St Xaviers Catholic Church

 

After the ceremony we headed back to the same location we shot their engagement photos, and revisited some favourite spots:blog-6921-007-2edit

Congratulations Anthony & Anna, it was such a pleasure to be a part of your special day.

 

Amie & Josh :: {engaged}

He was the cute guy behind the counter at the butchers shop. She was the shy teenager coming in with her parents. Then one night, they were out with their friends, and a mutual friend called out. “Hey!” And the rest, as they say, is history. I caught up with Amie & Josh in Moree recently for their engagement session, and they are just so cute together. We went for a bit of a drive to check out spots for their wedding photos, and then I dusted off the camera and we shot some photos to remind them of this special time in their lives. I’m really looked forward to shooting their wedding in Moree in September, listening to Amie talk about her plans, it sounds like it will be awesome!

 

Simon & Kim :: {engagement}

With the harvest complete, Kim and Simon were ready to hit the road and make the long trek from Kim’s hometown of Moree, to Wagga, where they now live. We’d been back and forth trying to get a time that worked for me to head out to Moree, but instead we decided to shoot their engagement session in Inverell. I’m really looking forward to photographing their wedding in Moree in January, they are such a sweet couple, and I am bursting with ideas for their photos!

 

Simon & Kim, it was lovely to catch up with you, enjoy your sneak peek!

 

Thia & Pete :: {wedding}

Cloudy, sunny, cloudy, sunny… The weather kept us guessing the whole way out to Moree, where we met the beautiful Lethia and her bridesmaids as they prepared for the ceremony. A whrlwind of activity, and everyone was dressed as we once more hit the road for the drive out to Garah. We caught up with Peter and the guys as they waited for the arrival of the bridal cars, before heading inside the church and watching as Lethia walked down the aisle on the arm of her very proud father. In the blink of an eye, the lovely ceremony was over, and we gathered outside for the family photos, with one eye cast skyward as the grey clouds threatened rain. As we loaded ourselves back in the car, and waited for the bridal party to lead the way to our location shoot, the first spots appeared on the windscreen. By the time we crossed the train tracks and left Garah behind us, the rain was pouring down. A few quick adjustments, and we found a nice dry spot to start the photos. Then as quickly as it came, the rain disappeared, and teh clouds gave way to bautiful blue sky.

 

They say it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day, though I’m sure this gorgeous pair won’t need it! Congratulations guys, it was a pleasure to hang out with you and be a part of your special day.

Maisie :: newborn

At two weeks old, Maisie seemed so tiny, in my mind, anyway. Having just left my three small people, the youngest of which is now 11 months, to head to Warialda for Maisie’s newborn portraits, she was a featherweight as she curled up on my chest after being offered a cuddle. Quite the surprise I got to find she was over 8lb born!

Dan and Sam, thanks so much for having me out, I had a lovely afternoon hanging with you and getting some cuddles with your beautiful baby girl.
