Whim Autumn Issue

I have been honoured to have been featured in Whim Magazine for the February issue and excited to see my photography on the front cover of the issue. I was approached by the lovely Nicole Johnson who is the model for this shoot, she came to me with the news that Whim was looking for Autumn submissions. I always wanted to do an Autumn theme as most of my shoots has been spring or summer so it was time for a new change. I do love the reds, oranges and yellows for the season.

I have launched a new package called ‘Styled Love Shoots’ which is mostly engagement photoshoots where I style the shoot with a theme and put props plus personally get the flowers and arrange them for the shoot. As Nicole came to me, a rush of ideas came to my mind and really wanted to style this shoot. It would be my very first styling shoot, Nicole wanted it to be simple and I think simple was best as I wanted her flower crowns to stand out and not get lost in the style shoot.

The day of the shoot was one of the most humid and hottest day ever. I was really melting just by stepping outside of my house but we still powered on. I was so glad to have done this later in the afternoon to get that amazing golden glow from the sun, it just added a new touch and warmth to this shoot which is what I thought captures what Autumn is all about.

This shoot allowed me to understand the styling elements and to challenge myself. I love styling and I even have fallen in love with flowers, I so enjoyed arranging them! All the props can be hired if you are interested, just email us for more details.

Whim Online Magazine have featured this shoot on their cover, head on over to their site to see the magazine. http://issuu.com/whimonlinemagazine/docs/whim_issue_04

{Love Shoot} – Marissa & Bruno

Marissa and I went high school together, I was thrilled when she asked me to be her photographer for her wedding. She bought one of the packages which included engagement photography, albums and her wedding day photography. Thank you for having me be part of your special moment!

This shoot was so fun and relaxing that it didn’t feel like I was working. The weather was so nice and sunny for the beach which suited this couple so well as they are so easy going and simple. They just wanted to play in the water and kept on laughing which just showed how much they love each other and that they can’t get enough of each other’s company….

I can’t wait for the big day and to be able to capture some amazing moments for the both of you.

Garden Glamour

Both Eliska (Ruffles and Bells) and myself (Marie – lilelements) have always loved garden themes but wanted to create a more glamorous and dreamy feel. We both love outdoor weddings and with the summer season here it was the perfect time for our concept.

Who doesn’t love outdoor weddings? We wanted to set up an intimate secret garden setup for two amongst the stunning backdrop of weeping willow trees. Welcoming the new season of summer, we created a soft and glamorous atmosphere underneath the lovely rays of the sun with gorgeous flat-wares and lots of floral.

The chandelier from Vintage Patina was the perfect glamorous touch especially when the sunlights touches the crystals showering sparkles onto to the table. Merci Bouquet’s floral designs were beautiful and creating such a simple yet effective floral table runner, who needs a centerpiece when you can just look at the amazing blooms! We also adored her moss floral frames she created.

Tanya from Eden Rose is a pleasure to work with as we adored her bridal dresses. Her work fitted perfectly into this theme, all the beads were stunning in the sunlight. What bought out the dresses was the beauty of Yummii & I headpieces. Her handmade headpieces are gorgeous along with the stylish braid up-do by Deelush. Such flawless outfits and angelic make up by Miss Julie Makeup.

Cakes by Sharon sweet desserts were the eyecandy of the day. The clean lines and perfect shade of green complimented the greeneries and the glamour. Lastly we can’t invite our guests without some press stationary by Letterpress Parlour, with classic stationery and menu cards to complete the whole theme.

Darlene & Minh’s Engagement

A night of beautiful memories where Darlene and Minh celebrated their engagement with their close family and friends. I’ve met Darlene in high school and was thrilled to have been asked to be their photographer of their small stepping stone of their lives.

The night was filled with fun games, music, drinks and delicious food. The beautiful candy station was created by our favorite vendors JL Candy Station.

Big C Support’s Night of Music – Charity Event

I had the pleasure of taking photos of a great charity event held by Big C Support. The night was filled with many stories to tell and amazing music to listen to… It was a great night for a great cause.

Big C Support is a charity which is starting up that is dedicated to making financial counselling available to all cancer patients. We don’t realise what cancer patients go through to get counselling on their treatments and it’s already hard enough to pay for the treatment itself let alone they have to pay for counselling and consultations for their condition.

Please take the time to head over their site to have a read and see what you can do to help!
