John + Nicole + Kids.....Duncan Family Portrait!

Nicole wanted something a bit more vintage and whimsical for her family portrait. We found just the right spot for it in the Swan Valley a beautiful field perfectly back lit for that romantic soft look. We had heaps of fun with the two girls Alani and Isla who had surprisingly lots of energy at this time of the day. Hope you guys enjoyed your afternoon with us and love the photos. Thanks J&K

Tenae, Aneak & Richard Portrait!

A few months ago Tenae contacted us to shoot her wedding but unfortunately we where not able to photograph her big day. Happily Tenae got back in touch with us recently to have a portrait sitting of herself, her fiance, her sister and their 2 dogs Lola & Max! We had fun with Tenae, Aneak & Richard at Tranby House in Maylands shooting a series of portraits. An energetic bunch, they did hand stands and piggy back rides and we cant forget antics of their 2 dogs. We hope you enjoyed the afternoon getting your pics taken. Thanks K&J

Pim & Carlos Linares

Pim & Carlos chose to marry in an intimate service on a Friday afternoon in February. Their choice of Matilda Bay for the service and reception was fitting considering Carlos had proposed riverside last year and it made for a lovely backdrop to their day. We got to spend some time with the couple and their bridal party on location in Subiaco which gave us a chance to combine Pim's love of arty, rustic, cafe style backgrounds with Carlos' love of greenery. The day went super fast (as all weddings do) but it looked to us like Pim and Carlos were in for a fun night. We hope you guys had a wonderful celebration and we're still super jealous of the honeymoon to the US! Much love and appreciation J&K

Lauren & Justin Abbott... a very hot day!

On a very hot day (the 21st of January 2012) at the Cottesloe Civic Center Lauren and Justin said "I do".  Lauren was a little concerned about possible stormy weather in the weeks leading up to the big day and instead got the start of our recent heat wave! Justin and his brothers were troopers throughout the day (being in suits and standing in the sun at the alter) and all things considered everyone managed to stay in high spirits and enjoy themselves (I think 20mins in the air conditioned limo and some cold beer might have helped!). Matilda Bay is where Justin asked Lauren to marry him and it was only fitting that Matilda bay be where they celebrated their gorgeous wedding reception with family & friends. It was a beautiful wedding and I'm sure a wonderful celebration, hope you both had an amazing & memorable night. Kick back and relax while you're in Bali, oh and have a cocktail for me!  Much love and appreciation  J
