Amy & Dylan - Down South Wedding


As featured on Offbeat Bride.

I was ready and up for the challenge of photographing Amy and Dylan’s Winter wedding down in the south west region of Western Australia in Yallingup. The stunning Winter colours of the dresses, flowers and suits tied everything together beautifully with the rich greens of the gardens of the venue. Even though it did end up raining halfway through the day – I think it worked in our favour as we had a last minute change to commence the ceremony in a marquee which made everything so much more intimate and brought beautiful soft lighting on everyone’s smiling faces.


Also, I completely stacked it at the start of the day running over to photograph the reactions for the couple’s first look. Pretty good timing that Dylan had his back turned and Amy was too far away to see me (and my cameras) get covered in mud – yet I wasn’t embarrassed. Amy and Dylan are hilarious and down to earth and it made the day run so smoothly.
