You know when you walk into the unknown and you realise you've kinda arrived at home, and you're surrounded by a family that although you've never met them before you feel you've been hanging out for ever. That was me - South Coast Wedding Photojournalist - and living so far from anywhere that I rarely meet my clients before their Wedding Day. A quick knock on Room 7 at Bannisters By The Sea and with a quick hello and reaffirmation that I was surrounded by my tribe of folks I went to work between happy banter and plenty of laughs.
Kat and Chris continually impressed me with their total friggin' awesomeness. Seriously. I can't think of a stronger couple. We took some portraits first down at North Mollymook Beach and then out the back of Milton. Watching them hold each other, it was so clear how deep their mutual love and respect runs. I'm always taken by my clients inner super model skills too, which I personally have none, and expect all my clients to be equally awkward in front of the camera. These guys. Nup. Straight off the movie set for some quick stills and then off to get hitched. So much style and grace!
Matron Porter Reserve at South Caz (Narrawallee) turned it on for a really sweet and intimate Wedding Ceremony. I think that's clear in the shots. I felt it that's for sure. We all did, as did Kat and Chris' little legends who turned on the charm and did all the classic stuff little boys do when they're dressed in little man suits. Too cute.
All this before 5pm and topped off with tons of Cupitts Winery love into the night. Picture open fire, glasses of wine, sandstone cottages, rolling green hills, and The Budawangs for a backdrop.
Big huge YEAH to how good this was. Keep it flowing!
