Beautiful women - Sarah

The first thing you'll notice about Sarah is the way she dresses. She pulls no punches, she is no shrinking violet. I've always delighted in wondering what combination of clothing Sarah would turn up in on any given day of the week. So when contemplating the nature of how this shoot would look we decided to capture a different outfit for each day.

Sarah's personality is as colourful and confident as her style of dress. Not in a brash and overly loud way, she is more of a bubbly, 'brighten up your day when she walks in the room' kind of girl. A quiet achiever who sticks to her own path.

Sarah's background is in psychology and she works in human services. One story she shared with me when I first got to know her, was of a painting one of her clients had done of a parachute, she being the parachute. It made her happier than anything else in her work to know that her time with this person had impacted their life in such a way as to feel lifted up, carried to an extent, and therefore changed for the better.

Sarah is a beautiful woman.

Erin and Jason - Wedding

Erin and Jason's big day was the last wedding of 2014 for me. Held on a hot December day only a few days before Christmas, it was also, without a doubt, one of the most heartfelt. From the moment I first started chatting to Erin I knew she and Jason were going to be wonderful to spend the day with. Erin has an infectious laughter and happiness that makes you feel like you're the funniest person on the planet. A gravitating warmth that draws you to her. Who can blame Jason for falling so madly in love? I suspect she had him at 'Hello'.

Their intimate nuptials were celebrated at the very special Harvest Cafe. I've long been a huge fan of this delightful restaurant which provides excellent food amongst the storybook, hinterland village of Newrybar, NSW, so I was pretty excited about having the opportunity to photograph their wedding here. The location, the venue, and the people did not disappoint. Erin and Jason's wedding was emotional and raw (they kissed and hugged repeatedly throughout the ceremony) and I could see that every guest was of special importance to them.

Needless to say this wedding capped off a wonderful photographic year perfectly. Thank you Erin and Jason for welcoming me into your lives on this fabulous day, I loved every moment.
