Warrnambool is home to some hidden gems so fellow photographer Laura and I sat down together work out how we could bring these gems into the limelight. The result? A collaboration of talents, energy and, best of all, beauty.
Simon + Michelle’s wedding at Quamby Homestead in Woolsthorpe, just north of Warrnambool, has to be one of the most smile filled weddings I’ve ever photographed. It was also one of the most colourful, which excited me beyond words when this beautiful couple first described their plans to me over a cup of coffee.
I first met Adam + Amanda in a cafe in Prahran, Melbourne, and before we’d ordered our coffees I already knew that I HAD to be their wedding photographer. Everything about their story, their plans and, most importantly, who they are as people made me feel excited. They made me feel welcomed. They knew they wanted an unobtrusive photographer, someone who would be watching their guests, not just them.
Aussie boy meets French girl while travelling the world. They move to Australia, Boy proposes to Girl. They elope on a beach just outside of Warrnambool, Victoria on The Great Ocean Road. Sound like a movie? Well, to be honest, it just about could have been one.
“She has such a beautiful smile,” my wife said to me as I showed her the photos of Lauren + Brendon’s wedding at The Convent Gallery in Daylesford. “It’s just so natural and it draws you in, making you feel like she’s happy to be anyone’s friend. She looks so incredibly happy!”
