Bridal portraits, first looks and couples creatives were absolute priorities for Kristin + Grant as they tied the knot in an outdoor garden ceremony at the Perth Manor Boutique Hotel in Perth. I had the pleasure of photographing Kristin as she got ready with her closest family members (Grandma, Mother and brother) and maid of honour assisting. The Beach House in Perth is responsible for Kristin's pretty makeup and softly elegant updo. Kristin's gown from Sinders Bridal House fit Kristin's petite frame like a glove, highlighting Kristin's stunning back and fit curves in all the right places. A gorgeous bouquet from Apropos Flowers was the perfect finishing detail to Kristin's bridal look -- a sentimental locket containing a photo of Kristin and her father was attached and at her fingertips so that she could easily be reminded of his presence. Kristin's first looks with Grant were genuine - just look at their shiny, beaming eyes as they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day. A quick jaunt to Stewart Park for their couples creatives closed out the afternoon for Kristin + Grant before they headed back to Perth Manor to exchange their vows and officially become "husband and wife". Thank-you, Kristin + Grant, for entrusting me with capturing some of the important high-lights of your day!
You put a significant amount of care and time into hosting an event that celebrates your clients - and we know you want images that will capture that mutual respect and care. Ampersand Events assisted with LWGAI's 25th Anniversary event and we were there to capture it so that the hosts could spend their time where it was most wanted: with their clients and colleagues.
Although family and friends might have wanted to celebrate with a large, elaborate wedding for Abigail + Matthew, this pair decided on a more quiet, intimate day instead. As wedding day dawned, unbeknownst to many, Abigail + Matthew literally snuck away in the early morning to rendezvous at the site of their engagement: Mer Bleue. There, they saw each other for the first time as "bride" and "groom" and spent some time in each other's company, laughing and reminiscing while the rest of the world slowly awakened to their wedding day. Their little girl, Elizabeth, joined them for some sweet family captures before the duo departed as a family of three to enjoy the rest of the day with closest family and friends at their intimate reception at Vittoria Trattoria. Thank-you, Abigail + Matthew for inviting me to share in some of the most intimate moments of your day! Wishing you the happiest of days!
Hey followers, Marcus here! I’ve mostly been in the background, using my telescope and letting my mom guide with posting and writing. Now that I’ve acquired some experience and understanding, it’s time for me to take the lead and explain about my progress so far.
Over the past 2 months, I've learned much about the primary concepts of astrophotography - aligning, tracking, and imaging. The learning curve has been VERY steep - steeper than I anticipated, and patience has been key. On occasion, I've had to recruit my father to help with some technical issues I just could not figure out.
