Why I’m a photographer..

Why I’m a photographer..

So by now you must know I’m passionate about photography and business branding but you might not know why? What’s the story behind why I actually became a photographer.

Well since I was a kid my Nan actually used to run around with her film camera weather it was her proper one or a cheap ‘ol Kodak disposable and she was always snapping away at this and that, mostly me actually. I remember family members saying ‘Oh not another photo please!’ After that I remember grabbing the camera myself I started snapping around the age of four or five. After that I do also remember really wanting to become a cartoonist, always drawing my own characters and little comics.

35mm Photography BookWhen I was 16 I worked at a restaurant ‘Cactus Jacks’ while there on shift a guy called David used to come in once every two weeks with his colleagues and have dinner over a few months we chatted and got more involved in conversation; he happened to be a photographer based in Sydney. One night he stayed back to show me prints of his recent trip to Cambodia along with the stories of the journey. It really was then when I first became impacted by an image deep inside somewhere that made me want to be able to do the same. The next time he saw me he gave me this book the 35mm Handbook! A good read with great facts if anyone is interested!

After that I moved to live in Melbourne with my Aunt who gave me my first 35mm film camera and off I went snapping around Melbourne at anything that caught my eye, and I suppose as they say the rest is history and here I am now 10 years on with my own business spreading love and captured memories to every client I meet! <3

Surprise Wedding Brisbane!

Surprise Wedding Brisbane!

So here’s the story of Corey and Alison, they met out one night not realising they actually grew up in the same town. It was love at first sight and then came their two beautiful daughters and then they surprised their family with a Wedding that was actually meant to be an engagement party!

It was a lovely night situated at the reception hall at The Pump Yard Ipswich – http://www.4heartsbrewing.com/. It was a rainy old day but this atmosphere inside made the day/night still feel really magical for the couples lovely day. They had James Anson singing the night away for them he really set the mood and made for great entertainment.

Hen + May did the signs for Alison’s photo table, signs and wishing well table was a lovely handwritten touch to the feel of their rustic theme.

Surprise of the beards!

Surprise of the beards!

So the other weekend I got the honor of being asked to design invitations and then also take pics at a surprise party, now not just any surprise party no A BEARDED MAN party! John’s lovely wife Maeghan organised the whole thing behind his back successfully with him getting a very big surprise, the poor guy thought he was going out for Burgers and Beers with a few mates!

It turned out to be a great night with a pop up photobooth shenanigans, cake eating and celebrations!
