JEMMA + DAN // Waverly Estate Wedding
Coolest Palm Beach Wedding Venues // A Photographer's Guide

    Play for slideshow // Scroll for highlights    I'm not going to explain this one in too much wordy detail. I think the images will do just fine. But here are some thoughts that swirled around my head while I was putting the finished touches on this once in a lifetime day at the Waverly Estate.Some wedding day stories just have an extra layer of emotion that no one expects. It's a feeling that hangs thick in the air, and you can see it on the faces around you if you watch for longer enough. It's an excitement, an urgency... but it's also an acknowledgement and a realization of the shortness of our existence. There are few life ...

TAMMY + FRASER // Engagement in Havana, Cuba
Coolest Palm Beach Wedding Venues // A Photographer's Guide

Though it's so close to our home in Florida, Cuba is a place I never thought I'd get to visit for the purpose of telling a story through photography. It just seemed like too big of a task or too awesome of a dream to actually happen. So when Tammy and Fraser contacted me about doing their engagement photos in Havana, I didn't get my hopes up too high. A lot had to fall into place, particularly with fairly short notice and an already hectic travel schedule. BUT, after meeting these guys and connecting with their story, I knew I had to be a part of this journey.What their relationship represents to me, is exactly what I love about this craft and the concept of joining lives and families ...

    Play for slideshow // Scroll for highlights     Kristen and Lloyd are beyond cool. They dress cool. They talk cool. They have a cool record collection... They just seem to ooze coolness in a way that makes you want to know them. Their friends will back me up here. BUT they're also genuine, down to earth and just bloody lovely humans. So photographing their wedding in the beautiful Harry P Leu Gardens was a pretty great way to spend a winter's day in Orlando. I don't know why, but I often end up photographing couples from different parts of the world who meet in unlikely circumstances. Lloyd is a strapping British music industry guy ...

   Play for slideshow // Scroll for highlights    Haley and Aniket. Documenting their story was like watching worlds collide. From near polar opposite ends of the earth and against impossible odds, they did it. They found one another. To be so perfectly matched, to be so supremely complimented by another being, to exist in the same moment in time and space, and to simultaneously recognize this miraculous fortune... It must have been fated.When I started traveling to photograph destination weddings for people of different cultures, I thought it would just be a bit of fun... a nice way to add some diversity to my portfolio, and maybe even ...

   Play for slideshow // Scroll for highlights    Clara and Vince's dual wedding ceremonies took place at one the best Barossa Valley wedding venues I'm yet to photograph. Seppeltsfield Winery has all the rustic South Australian charm you could ask for. And considering the vibrant contrast of blended Chinese-Malaysian traditions against the vintage Australian wedding backdrop, it definitely made for an interesting and dynamic setting for this emotional wedding story to unfold. I always implore couples to make their wedding plans with their joint personalities and values at the core of each decision. And these guys, who have a passion ...
