I was part of a collaboration between some incredible Canberran wedding vendors for a shoot to feature in Hooray magazine. The concept was to bring to life the free spirited bohemian bride that embodied the Wiluna Studio aesthetic, with wedding day styling inspiration shot in the Wiluna studio space, and the ‘day after’ story shot in the Naked Cubby ( see the next blog post for the images!). Earthy toned fresh and dried florals feature in the ceremony and reception styling, as well as a gorgeous bouquet and floral hat!
The talented (mostly) Canberra based vendors that formed this team included : Larissa from Wiluna Studio, Kate Anderson from Kate Lily Dressing Hair, Jessica Peris from The Beautique by Jessica Peris, Brow Lab, The Paper Botanist, Mrs Fray, The Naked Cubby, and our real life couple Linlin and Ben.

Eliza and Jozo’s wedding was not only beautiful (Autumn at Poacher’s Pantry is just magic) but full of love. It was full of laughs too- with a fun bridal party, the world’s most hilarious father- daughter speech, and plenty of Rakia.
It was also very special to me, because it was the last wedding that I shot before the birth of my little man (2 weeks later!!), and Eliza was also a precious secret cargo.

At the end of last year I had the pleasure of shooting a maternity portrait session with Pim and her husband Matt at one of the most breathtaking locations I’ve ever been to. It was an early start for us to catch first light at Bombo Quarry ( I think I got up at 4:30 for a 5:15 arrival), but it was so worth it to photograph Pim and Matt in this surreal otherworldly seascape, with the most beautiful sunrise light.
It felt extra special to me being able to be document a little bit of Pim’s pregnancy because I was about 12 weeks pregnant at the time. Read More
I’ve always thought there was something incredibly romantic about bookstores, and if I was a bride all over again I would probably get married in one. Muse was an awesome venue- it’s a beautiful space and also quite unique for a wedding venue. Their bonbonnieres were surprise books wrapped up for each guest-how cool! I thought that was a nice touch.
Yvonne and Joe’s intimate wedding at Muse Canberra was even more beautiful than I expected- they tied the knot surrounded by their closest friends, family, and their 3 daughters.
This is how I saw the evening unfold… Read More
When Chloe and Dylan contacted me saying that they wanted to make the trip out to Lincoln’s Rock for their elopement, I was over the moon! This clifftop location near Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains is one of the most beautiful places I have photographed in.
Their elopement was so incredibly beautiful. They were joined by their Mums, their celebrant Charmaine, and a handful of random bystanders - who seemed genuinely touched by the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we braved the cold and wind and explored the gorgeous scenery surrounding Lincoln’s Rock and the sun went down. Here are some images from the day…. Read More
