How gorgeous are Tracey and Daniel in these rustic inspired wedding photographs I photographed recently near Patterson Lakes in Melbourne. Both Tracey and Daniel did a fabulous job navigating through the varying terrain to take these stunning photographs, we even had attendance from the local llama’s ! I hope this gives you inspiration and ideas of how you can use the country and even landscapes to incorporate nature into the photographs for your wedding day. Here is a preview of the photographs from this gorgeous intimate rustic styled wedding! Enjoy!

Recently I have been working on a video with the guys at Growers Espresso and Eureka Coffee. It’s not hard to see their love and passion for coffee and if that’s not enough you can definitely taste it! Growers Espresso is located in North Fitzroy and there you can find the roastery and cafe is home to a huge selection of regulars and passers by. If you’re in the area, I definitely recommend you pop by say hello and try the blend on offer you could definitely not go wrong! Through the process I learnt so much from the staff at Eureka about coffee and how to savour and enjoy it. I learnt about the cupping process and what to look for in a good cup of coffee. But don’t let me convince you – head down there and check it out for yourself, you can pick up some pre-packed coffee for home while you’re there!

I recently had the pleasure of working with a bunch of really talented ladies as part of a series of photo shoots we did together. This is the first in this mini series and gives us some inspiration for Spring which will hopefully soon be upon us! I know I can’t wait for some warmer Melbourne weather, spring racing the Melbourne Cup and all that the sunshine has to offer! Have a look at these beautiful images and get in touch with the girls or myself for anything hair, makeup, flowers and photography that you like or might be interested in. Stay posted over the next few weeks to see the rest of the mini series and the beautiful photographs to come from our collaboration together! Special thanks to our models Kate, Albie, Cam and Nick who braved Melbourne’s cooler months to make this happen! What a rockstar group effort!
