Kelsey and Mitchell were married in an intimate ceremony held at Prickly Mo Vineyard in Eugenana, Tasmania at the end of March. Their friends and extended family joined them afterwards at the cellar door for some fabulous food, games and entertainment.
It's hard to choose a favourite moment from their wedding, but if I had to it would be the inclusion of their cute-as-a-button doggo, the curious horses watching the ceremony from a nearby paddock, convincing the horses not to chase us when we were taking bride and groom portraits, Kelsey's father's speech, the amaaaazing dessert grazing table created by the groom's family, the stunning dress and bouquet, the groom's awesome tie and how friendly and welcoming everyone was!
The biggest of thank yous to Mitchell and Kelsey for entrusting me with the photography for your big day - it was an honour and a pleasure to be involved! xx

I'll be perfectly honest with you, I'm not sure I can put into words the sheer fun and joy of Kirsty and Gareth's wedding, so I'm hoping some of that comes through the photos above! These two amazing people and their fun-loving family and friends gathered firstly at Table House Farm for a sunny Friday afternoon ceremony, then kicked on at Sandridge Estate for the reception. And by kick on, I really mean kick on. Proceedings on the dance floor were assisted by the hugely talented Detour and there was a whole lot of shoulder dancing going on late into the evening. Look, it's probably not called shoulder dancing, that description doesn't really do it justice. Let's just say there were numerous instances of people being picked up, put on people's shoulders and then dancing, yes?
It was an honour and a privilege and a whole heap of fun meeting you both, meeting your friends and family and helping to capture some memories on your wedding day for you. Thank you so much for entrusting me with your wedding photography.

I know, I know. More photos of the cat. #sorrynotsorry
Late last year I upgraded my camera to the Canon 5DMKIII - I still have the 6D, and will be using both regularly in future; they're both brilliant cameras. I'd planned to buy a MKIII later this year (and would have loved to have gone with the MKIV but that will have to wait for another time), then came across one at an incredibly good price, so I figured it was a sign from the universe. And you shouldn't ignore signs from the universe, it's bad luck. The other gear purchase I'd planned to make later this year was the Sigma Art 35mm F1.4 lens. However, an opportunity came up to buy one early this year at an incredibly good price and I figured that was also a sign from the universe. Ignoring one sign from the universe is bad luck, so I figured ignoring TWO signs from the universe would be VERY bad luck. So I grabbed it while I could! Basically, if you hear of me buying anything else gear-related this year (other than batteries or memory cards), you might need to stage an intervention. Feel free to give me a stern talking-to if it comes to it.
All that to say, I've spent the last couple of months playing around with the new camera and getting to know it a little bit, and this morning I had some time to test out the Sigma ON the Canon - and I'm really happy with the results. Jenkins set herself up in the nicest part of the house for natural light; this is her favourite window to do her watching from. She got to spend some time spying on the neighbours and I got to put my camera in her face for a bit. Win-win. Also: PAWS (just saying.)
