Rach And Media’s Hoot coverage published

Back in June I had the chance to attend the Hoot Jazz Music Festival in Mt Barker and take photos for the Adelaide Hills Magazine. It was a great night with a street party featuring live music, food and drink and lots of people went along.

If you ever get the chance to drop by during Hoot, which is usually held during the June long weekend, I highly recommend it. Thanks again to the Adelaide Hills Magazine for the photography opportunity.

New family memories with Lisa & Stephen

Lisa & Stephen are goods friends of mine and I was lucky enough to be asked to help record some valuable memories as they anxiously await the arrival of their first child. At 8 months pregnant Lisa was taking everything in her stride and was positively glowing and Steve was bursting with excitement and pride.

These photos were taken at the beautiful Keith Stephenson Park, Mt Barker and at Lisa & Stephen’s home.

Now we ‘patiently’ await the arrival of bubs!

Event Photography – Adelaide Hills Magazine

I’ve been waiting impatiently for a few months now to see my first photo spread in the Adelaide Hills Magazine, following my attendance at the Highland Gathering in Mt Barker in February.

The extremely hot summer’s day (38 degrees!) was filled with the traditional bagpipes you’d find at any Scottish event, but also with some ┬áStrong Man events, a caber toss and a hilarious knobbly knees competition.

I can’t wait to have the chance to attend my next event for the Adelaide Hills Magazine!!

I just love Jordaine’s face here as her brother walks her down the aisle. Happy and relaxed was the order of the day!

It was a hot day and this big old oak tree was the perfect place for photos following the ceremony.

A nice family shot for the bride has captured a happy moment to be looked back on in years to come.

Had to slip in a funny photo here! David surprised Jordaine with this one and the look on her face says it all.

Such a gentleman!

A quick relaxed shot as the couple returns to the reception following the photoshoot captured the beauty of their location perfectly.

Jordaine and David had been together for quite a few years before they made it official in 2011, but anyone who knew them had no doubt that they would be together forever. The pair have a light-hearted humour and bounce off each other in ways that only a couple who truly enjoy each other’s company can do. They married on David’s property in the Adelaide Hills near Kersbrook during the day and celebrated with guests to the tune of a jazz band following the ceremony.

The wedding of Heidi & Robbie

Sigh. The Adelaide Hills settings make my job so much easier and the glowing bride made for a perfect pre-ceremony photo!

Striking bridesmaid dresses matched the clear blue sky on this day and added some real ‘zing’ to the photos!

The stereotypical Australian bush that surrounded the wedding location had a lot of character to work with during the photoshoot. Location – The Carlton Club, Hahndorf.

How could a groom get to the big day without his best man? Robbie sits with his best man and reflects following the ceremony. Location – The Carlton Club, Hahndorf

Heidi & Robbie’s Wedding: A few years ago now I was asked by a friend to photograph their wedding. It was my first job and it was very nerve-wracking, but with several years of photography experience working for a country newspaper behind me I knew the basics.

The results of the day were fantastic and so started my love for wedding photography and capturing a special day for a special pair.

Heidi & Robbie were married in the gardens at The Carlton Club in Hahndorf, with an afternoon tea reception immediately following. Robbie’s excitement at becoming Heidi’s husband was so beautiful that his speech will be one to remember, both for numerous toasts and its length!
