The sweet proposal

I seriously have not been this nervous/emotional before!!
When my assistant Jake rang me one afternoon I yelled out ” are you proposing??”
It was extremely hard to keep my lips sealed over the next few weeks but what an honor,
that I get to capture this special moment between Jake and Emily who truly love and adore each other
and to witness their faithful journey.
EVERYTHING was falling into place for this proposal even Emilys wish that she would be able to share the news with her
mum in person and she happened to be in Melbourne that weekend for a short course!!
( well AND to be proposed with a donut!)

” Neiyo thank you so much for the photos and keeping my fiance calm today! I absolutely love the photos
and with our family and friends so far away its been the best to send them and be able to share our moment!
Was so nice having you there. Much Love Emily ”


Avant Garde Styled Shoot

Spring has been so crazy but I finally made some time to update my blog! So excited to be featured in White Magazine again!
This styled shoot with Ruffles and Belles at the Convent Gallery in Daylesford ( one of my favourite places!) was just a dream!
When Eliska from Ruffles and Belles first contacted me to do a shoot
that would represent scenes from the many stages of the big day
such as Lingerie, Ceremony, Reception to Honeymoon, I was more than thrilled to be a part of it.

What I loved about this bridal photoshoot the most were the dreamy new pantone colors
represented in the pink and blue walls of the venue…
the soft and romantic look of our beautiful model Simone Smith
and the softness of everything coming together including the table setting.
The trickiest were probably the lay flats. I had to climb up a ladder to get those! The things I do to get a good shot!
And did I mention the beautiful and refreshingly delicious strawberry tower by My wedding Decor?!
