Maddy and James are one of my amazing wedding couples from last year. When Maddy asked if we prior to their wedding could do a couple / pet photography session in their home and the nearby park I was like: “YASSS!”

Having your photos taken in an environment that is dear to you, such as your home or to schedule it around activities you love is something I highly recommend. Just imagine when you’re a bit older and greyer and you look back at those photos, it’s not just pretty photos of you, it’s a time capsule of how you lived and what you loved doing.

We met in their home where their adorable furry friends kept stealing the show, and then went for a stroll to their favourite local park where they like to take their dog Lola.

So say hello to Milo the brown Burmese and Lola the rescue dog. I frickin love pets, I bet you do too!

“OH MY GOD THESE ARE AMAZING. You are a magic maker! Thank you so very very very much for all of your love, talent and generosity in capturing our wedding. You really are such a gem.” – Hayley & Ian

Catching  a water taxi to McKell Park. Walking in hand in hand as a couple. Marry in the lush garden. Aim to enter the reception in a rowing boat and almost fall into the water ;) Share good times and good food with friends and family at the old little boad shed.

Hayley’s maid of honour Anna designed and made the wedding dress, as well as the bridesmaid dresses. They looked like colourful birds… And Hayley’s dress… Where do I begin? Frickin. Amazing. (Some serious embroidery skills right there!!) Their friends and family contributed to make their day extra special: Guitar play during the ceremony. A smoking ceremony. Songs for the newly weds at the reception…  Lots of foliage and decorations and fun things to do. And most of all, time together to celebrate. :)
