Danelle & Brenton's Aravina Estate Wedding, Margaret River

Brenton and Danelle met in primary school, but it wasn't until a bad seating plan at high school where they were thrown together in class that Brenton's charm won Danelle over, and the rest they say, is history. This pair were made for each other. Eleven years together and still looking at each other like the everlasting light in each others lives. 

Their wedding was an elegant classic, and we had fun with the bridal party who just enjoyed each other's company all day. The guys in the crew were such gentlemen they even helped me off a post when I decided I needed to climb it for a shot! ;-)

Danelle looked absolutely stunning in her custom made Raffinato Bridal dress, which had beautiful lace detailing on the bodice, and Brenton scrubbed up perfectly in his classy suit. 

The pair DIYed their reception styling with inspiration from Pinterest...and a beautiful venue like Aravina Estate doesn't need much work anyway...so it all came together beautifully!

Teagan & Stephen's Black Brewing Co. Wedding, Margaret River

The first word that springs to mind when I think about Teagan and Stephen's wedding is fun. This pair were so laid back and happy, and their friends too, that we just had a fantastic day full of silliness, laughter and, well, fun!

We were loving the colours of the day, the burgundy and greenery just looked amazing and the styling was beautiful. We also loved Teagan's cape - stunning!

Theirs was one of the best receptions we've been to ever, everyone was up on the dance floor just having a great time and celebrating the occasion, without a care in the world. 

Congratulations to the happy couple, what a great day!

Tipsy's final goodbye ~ Bunbury Pet Photography

Sometimes things happen and the importance of what we do really hits home...a heartbroken family is saying goodbye to this beautiful soul today. They knew they would be sending her off to rest so yesterday they came in to the studio to celebrate Tipsy's life and capture some final memories of her.

I was crying before they even walked through the door, but after we all had a few moments to compose ourselves we had fun playing with her and enjoying a session complete with a platter full of donuts (which didn't stand a chance!) and a flower crown.

Rest in peace beautiful girl, after meeting your humans I know you will be missed. Jo xxx


Lisa & Sam's pearl river houses Wedding margaret river

Lisa & Sam's Margaret River wedding was a lovely relaxed day with family and friends. With everything in one place, they could get ready while they watched the ceremony and marquee take shape, and just enjoy the beautiful day.

When your grandad owns a retired racehorse it would be rude to not include him in the celebration too, so Lisa rode in on horseback much to all the guests delight, and we of course took a little time out for some photos with Tommy too. 

After they said their I Do's we made our way to the beach for photos with the Kombi Van that the pair had been so excited about, and had a great afternoon with them and their friends before heading back to Pearl River Houses to watch an impressive first dance and listen to some gorgeous speeches, before leaving everyone to party the night away.

Leah & Dimitry's Aravina Estate Wedding Margaret River

Leah and Dimitriy's wedding was an elegant day, starting off with preparations for the girls at the gorgeous Yallingup Luxury Retreat.  It has been a little while since we'd photographed a church ceremony, but St Thomas More Margaret River was the perfect backdrop for this lovely couple. 

After the formals were done we took a drive up to Canal Rocks and I was super impressed with Leah and Dimitriy's total willingness to climb rocks and clamber around to make the most of the beautiful landscape and get "the shot". It's not always easy in a wedding dress but we love adventurous couples and it's always worth doing something a little different!

It was fun hanging out with a smaller group, with Leah's sister and Dimitiry's brother making up the bridal party...just a cruisy afternoon spending time with people who were totally relaxed and at ease in each other's (and my) company :-)

The reception was at Aravina Estate, where we shoot regularly and completely love, so we had some fun in the vines and paddocks before heading in to party the night away. Of course our photobooth was looking completely amazing too and definitely helped add to the fun!

Congratulations Leah and Dimitriy, we wish you a lifetime of happiness in each other's arms.
