I shot my first wedding of my beautiful friends Brittany & Gino in the QT Gold Coast back in November.
By the tennis court, before Justin Bieber ruined it!

Sometimes something comes along in life and gets so deep under your skin it changes you in every sense. Makes you step outside yourself and view your life and being from a completely different perspective. Last night my beau and I watched a film that shook us to our very core. In fact a whole 24 hours later and it’s still consuming my every thought and also his. We love a good foreign film; they seem to capture life as it is no Hollywood lights or dramatic romance. Foreign films are raw, evoke real emotions and cut you deep, in the most wonderful way. Last night I felt I lived a life of another, felt their pain and seen through their eye’s. I know I’m getting WAY emotional and dramatic right now but you simply cannot understand unless you’ve watched it.
This film was ‘Venuto al mondo’ (Born Twice) by director Sergio Castellitto about a single mother who brings her teenage son to Sarajevo to revisit her past and retrace the memory of her lost love. The story was so incredibly heart breaking I haven’t been able to get that horrible knot out my stomach since. The history of Sarajevo, the fragility of life, the depths of human suffering and the extraordinary gift of love and motherhood made this not simply a film but a lesson in life.
We both went to bed last night thankful for the life we have and with the strongest feeling that we are not doing enough to help others. I want to jump straight on a plane to a war torn country and help all those poor innocent souls. It made me think of my grandparents and what I must have been like to live through war. To witness that level of destruction and live in constant fear, to walk away from the people you love not knowing if you will ever see them again and fight so desperately for your country and your freedom.
This film was THAT good.

Brittany & Gino
In preparation for their November 9th Gold Coast wedding my beautiful friends Brittany and Gino and I met for an impromptu pre-wedding shoot at Fairfield Boat Club on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
These two are larger that life, individually and more so together. Their energy is infectious and they are even more beautiful on the inside than they are on the outside.
I am so overwhelmingly proud and honoured to be shooting their fast approaching nuptials but also slightly terrified as it will be my first ever wedding as a photographer.
Recently on VSCO
My beay and I work have been working crazy hours of late and have found ourselfs working 7 days weeks. It’s really important to take time out and do what you love. Recharging your mind as well as your creativity.
Sunday is usually ‘our day’ when we visit exhibitions, wander and explore.Last Sunday we paid the The Heide Museum of Modern Art a visit. We used to go there often but we hadn’t been in a long, long time.
It’s such a beautiful space with an extremely interesting history and wide-spread sculpture galleries. There’s something for everybody with the three Heide gallery spaces showing a variety of art forms.
