Friday at Crown Metropol and Queen's Park, Moonee Ponds.

Two super weddings on the weekend. These photos are from Friday starting at the Crown Metropol hotel and ending at Ascot House receptions. I should add a big thanks to my mate Rodney Dekker for helping me out on this shoot.

It was the light pattern on the ceiling that inspired this shot (above).

That's all in camera right there folks. In my typical style - find a good background with nice light, give simple direction, then let the couple be themselves (above).

pre-wedding shoot - Hosier Lane and Degraves St, Melbourne.

Shot a cute job for a couple who needed some photos to show at their Malaysian wedding next week. I'm shooting their Melbourne wedding this weekend. Hope the rain holds out.

a moment with the mother, father and bride

Here's an example of what I love to capture. The first photo is the bride emerging from a bedroom in her dress, followed by mum. The second is what the bride sees, her father, bridesmaid and friend - I love the moment. It's a candid shot, but I saw the potential to capture it about 10 minutes earlier and quietly anticipated it, just hoping everyone would hold their position ... and they did! That's wedding photojournalism.

Amy and Josh's wedding - St John's, Sorrento and a private residence, Mt Martha.

Stylish, incredible attention to detail, lovely people and beautiful locations in St John’s church Sorrento and a private residence in Mt Martha. A great wedding. I could have blogged 150 photos because there’s so much I like about the work.
