Sibling Portraits – Sydney Family Photographer

Sibling Portraits- An outdoor photography session with three beautiful girls. Siblings; best friends one minute and not so friendly the next, that’s parenting kids right? But the beauty of photographing sibling portraits is…..I always see the LOVE 🙂 I know a lot of people shy away from outdoor photography sessions during winter. It can be cold and breezy, but it can also be utterly spectacular.  Choosing to photograph early afternoon proved  to be pretty perfect on this particular day, the light was just beautiful. Hardly any breeze, the sun was shining the sisters were relaxed (courtesy of school holidays). And I think they were pretty excited about their portraits as well. It had been a very long time between photo shoots for these kids, which is something I hear really often. But how nice will it be for these girls, Sophie, Emily and little Holly to look back in 20 years time at these beautiful photos of the three of them together. It’s really special to create these memories for families. It honestly only took these girls  a few minutes to completely relax for the camera, and have loads of fun. Of course moving with the current times and all

Amanda and Joshua’s Ottimo House Wedding

Amanda and Josh’s Wedding day celebrations. Ottimo House, is one of those unbelievably beautiful Sydney wedding venues, amd where Amanda and Josh celebrated their nuptials I labelled these two… the lucky couple. With all the craziness going on in the world. Amanda and Josh were so fortunate that they fell within the Government restricted  guidelines and the Corona virus. Safe to say if there wedding was scheduled for just 7 days later, it would have been completely cancelled.  So yep, I think  “lucky couple” is very fitting  😉 Amanda, mum and dad, bridesmaids and cute flower girls had a real flawless bridal preparation. Stress free, lots of laughs, no dress dramas. The best way to start the wedding day! We met the groomsmen at Ottimo House for their photo session, 4 brothers and a couple of very cute little page boys, and lots of family! Always nice to take photos of the guys before the nuptials . Just helps take the focus off the nerves of the ceremony  for a little while. Think these guys scrubbed up pretty nicely. And ceremony time!! Amanda arrived in style….and a lot of noise… Lots of motorbikes…like lots,  and some very unique cars as

Ottimo House Jennifer and Michael’s Wedding

Jennifer and Michael celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception at the very picturesque Ottimo House. A spectacular wedding venue located in Denham Court. Surrounded by lots of family and friends, and their gorgeous little boy. The page boy who certainly provided some light hearted entertainment during the nuptial. The ceremony was performed by the lovely Amanda Knapton. It was certainly beautiful and heartfelt but so very relaxed at the same time. A perfect combination for today’s modern couple! Michael and Jennifer took everything in their stride. Hudson being a typical two year old wandered around the couple as if nothing unusual was going on!  Nothing like a game of peek a boo while mum and dad say their “I do’s”!! First of all, let me tell you how darn windy it was.  That certainly can made outdoor photos a bit of a challenge. Hats off (literally) to Jennifer. The bride took it all in her stride. Absolutely nothing seemed  to bother these two. But, as a result we got some great veil blowing photos! The bridal party were definitely a lot of fun. They certainly played such a wonderful part in keeping little Hudson entertained. Especially when  mum and dad

Cropley House – Amanda and Damien’s Wedding

Amanda and Damien’s Cropley House Wedding was in a word,  gorgeous. Two beautiful people married on the picturesque  grounds of Cropley House.  Amanda and Damien’s wedding  was a nice  intimate celebration with close family and friends. Damien’s little nephews: twins providing  a little entertainment during the ceremony. At one stage they actually looked like a mirror image! The ceremony was really beautiful and perform by one of the most sincere celebrants I have ever met  “Abbys Way Celebrations” .  After the wedding the couple added a beautiful little touch in the way of a butterfly release! There’s quite a story about these butterflies… that took a detour via Cairns (story for another day ).  After the vowels the couples were congratulated by family and friend before wondering the grounds of the Cropley House to have some amazing photographs. I have to say the lavender of the balcony of the venue was just spectacular. without a doubt  some of my favourite image were photographed in that spot. Enjoy this little sneak peak of Amanda and Damien’s Day   wedding venue http://www.cropleyhouse.com To view more of our wedding images head over to our wedding Galleries To find out more about our wedding photography
