Emily and Aaron's wedding - St Monica's Church, Moonee Ponds and Ascot House, Ascot Vale.

Queen's Park in Moonee Ponds might be the busiest wedding garden in Melbourne, only rivaled by the Treasury Gardens in the city. On any given Saturday afternoon the place is full of wedding parties and photographers. The challenge for me when working in such cliche rich territory is to find something fresh to shoot. For Emily and Aaron's wedding I became very interested in the soft light by the lake and some strong back light on a path - as is so often the case it's the light that dictates where to position the couple and the camera.

For some detail of the day, the photography started at the Crown Metropol Hotel where Emily dressed, followed by the ceremony at St Monica's Catholic Church in Moonee Ponds. We then proceeded down the road to Queen's Park and finally the reception at Ascot House. I like the joy and intimacy in the photos. I'd also like the thank my mate Rodney Dekker for helping out on the this shoot.
