- Perfect example of story telling, you know the moment of them walking in the sand, I imagine them holding hands, maybe stopping for a kiss. Poetry in motion. I love to see an event shot in a new way, a new angle, the light was perfect. Very impressed with the photographer who shot this.
- The eyes are a tantric window into our soul - of sorts. But, in this image, composition goes a long way in highlighting her excitement and joy.
- Taken at sunset in Taronga Zoo. The famous giraffe made its appearance in perfect timing with the bride and groom's embrace.
- The bushfires were raging; ironically smoke & sunset created a beautiful luminosity. The figure of bride & groom on the cake 'floats' on top the Sydney skyline.
- Nature gives us the perfect backdrop. Taken along a country road, here is a pefect example of taking advantage of what natures gives us.
- Her hand with the brush looks like a painter's hand. The gesture of her hand, especially the wrist is perfect. You can feel the intent of her stroke.
- This black and white photo encapsulates the feel of an old worldly class plus it's a very unique photograph of the bridal entourage.
- A funny, light moment shared between the girls. It is heartening to see the bridal party and the mom giving a hand (literally and figuratively) to the bride!
- I always encourage couples to pick a location that means something to them. This couple has great affinity with horses, and I think the horse just knew it!
- The tough expressions of the bride & groom and their three sons gives this photo an attitude! It is definitely not your usual smiley portrait.
- A fun photo of the groom and his grooms' men on the way to the wedding ceremony. The ute gives this photo a comedic touch.
- A simple photo with a simple subject. But with the perfect light, you can turn anything into something much more. This one is a pefect example.
- Getting ready is usually the bride's domain, but this one is special as the pageboy quietly waits for the groom to get ready. And yes, grooms get nervous, too!
- A very creative perspective that highlights Queen Victoria Building's great architecture; while the bride & groom shares an intimate impromptu dance.
- Everything in this black-and-white photograph, from the tree-lined country road to the vintage Renault convertible, says 'Bon Voyage!'
- Framing the bridal couple in the harp makes this a graceful composition. The blurring of the harpist puts the focus of the image squarely on the couple.
- This picture really doesn't need a caption. It summarises what wedding should be about: feelings, anticipation and a shared emotion between sisters.
- This image quietly tells a story: the little girls glancing up the dress, the light streaming from the window & the reflection in the mirror are like poetry.
