It’s always a great privilege to be invited to a client’s home to photograph them in their own environment. My friend Jolie recently asked me to capture some images of her family at her parent’s Eden Valley vineyard, in celebration of a milestone birthday.
I can’t help but smile when I think about Jolie, her husband Dave and their children (two sets of twins!). When our two families get together, we have a total of eight children between us, so it’s never dull or quiet!
I love how these images celebrate their life, work and connection.
Erica & Kim's Champagne Forest Picnic Wedding was unique, quirky and most fitting to this couple and their greatest loves - Food and Wine. The setting for this picnic was on the couples Barossa property, on the most perfect summers night. Nestled amongst the forest trees were picnic rugs and an abundance of gourmet treats. It was both classy and casual with all guests asked to bring their favourite bottle of champagne.
I met the Fenwicks on a warm sunny evening, at home on their family vineyard property. Right from the beginning it was fun, with all the counsins transported by trailer behind the tractor. Everybody was happy and got into the mood, pulling many funny faces and antics behind the scene.
One of my favouites was right near the end, while walking towards me, the kids started running.
I love how candid this is and in the moment, capturing this extended family having fun together.
Intimate, casual, relaxed affair, just as this bride and groom wanted. The three boys are all mechanics for Riverland Toyota so we had to throw in a Toyota jump or two. What a great fun bridal party, really easy to work with. An extra special one to capture as it was here at Loveday Ridge, not far to go home...
Shelby is a gentle giant at 6ft 8in tall, it's fair to say I needed the help of my step ladder. Emily and Shelby are both big characters and I see them perfectly matched, always laughing and joking around. Their Wedding was the most perfect October day, set among the gardens at Rustons Roses, Renmark.
I first met Izzy and Luke when I photographed Luke's sisters Wedding a few years earlier. Already at first meeting, the spark between this young couple was very clear. Fast forward 3 years and I was excited to travel back to Farrel Flat , the Burge Farm and share in another great family Wedding for this wonderful family.
