I was immediately taken aback by this day. What an amazing vibe to walk into! I felt totally relaxed, with a sense of calm that was evident with the smiles on the boys' faces. I love seeing my grooms, very chilled, laughing, lounging and enjoying a beer. For me, this is perfect! Not only does it make me feel instantly part of the family (which I love,) but it just makes for great candid pictures. For all my couples, this time really is the calm before the storm. It's the best feeling, seeing my grooms so relaxed, ready for the crazy afternoon which is to come. Ready for the friends and family to bombard them, each wanting their attention.
After running through the city, again, to my surprise, the feeling/vibe was much the same with the bride... so relaxed!
I walked into one of the beautiful suites of the Sydney Hilton Hotel to see the girls so peaceful, laughing, sipping champagne, and doing the very important, last minute touch ups.
Ok, so there it was, Jen's dress! Wooo....the genius dress maker, Steve Kahlil, totally blew me away! Yes, I have seen a lot of amazing dresses, but I was completely struck with the sheer detail and craftsmanship in this particular gown. I was busting to get some beautiful portraits of her in this stunning number. It was easy to see that she would look absolutely amazing... and as you can see from the pics, she did.
The rest of the day was exactly the same as it had started. Beautiful, chilled, relaxed... what a beautiful day to capture! I can't thank you two enough again for having me, the pleasure was all mine.
