Byron Bay Photographer – Love is…

Running your own business from home is a dream for some, but it can be a rather solitary experience at times.   Good old Facebook allows us to keep in touch with our sanity and with other photographers in our network and around the globe.   There is one forum that Jane uses to keep in touch with Jinky Art workshop alumni, being lucky enough to have attended 2 workshops in her time with the insanely talented and beautiful Barb Uil from Jinky Art (see the real life French Castle we stayed in for one of those workshops!).

A handful of photographers in this group have decided to share each other’s work a little, with the theme being ‘love’.   I thought I’d post this image of Jane and Louis from last Mother’s Day, on our daily evening walk to the park.  Louis had just turned 1 and we had also just found out that our little Layla was growing in Jane’s belly.   Hearts side by side, looking towards a bright, happy and healthy future.  This is what I hope for my three loves.

Please be sure to click on some of the links below, and check them out.  There are some incredible images to be seen!

Byron Bay Wedding Photography – Chris and Emma

Chris and Emma’s beautiful DIY wedding in Bangalow | Byron Bay Wedding Photography

Byron Bay wedding photography at the Bangalow Guest House.

Jane and I were really looking forward to photographing our first (and hopefully not our last) wedding in Byron Bay.  Not only is Byron Bay a magical place (as we all know), it’s also the home to some of Matt’s family.

We met Chris and Emma at Bangalow Guest House on the night before the big day – it was late; the time where brides and grooms-to-be should be kicking back, breathing deeply, thinking about catching some beauty Zs.

Not these two.

Completing the personal touches, ensuring all the well-thought out details were in place, everything was in order, perfect.

And it was.

This is not to say Emma and Chris weren’t easy going – they were!  Emma chauffeured herself to her own wedding.  Kiwi Chris spent the morning with his mates, as most grooms do, drinking Coronas and shooting the breeze.

They shared their love story with their family and friends underneath a Mulberry tree, by the creek in Bangalow.

 Guests shared platters of food as you would at the family dinner table.  An exceptionally beautiful dinner table.

Thanks Emma and Chris for being so creative and inspirational, and for trusting our creative license and Byron Bay wedding photography 🙂
