Seaside Wedding on the French Riviera

Rachel and Joe put a twist on conventional beach wedding by hiring a seaside villa in the upmarket Villefranche-sur-Mer to host their marriage celebrations. The four-story mansion was a flurry of activity as I skipped between floors to witness the preparations. Photographing the wedding was a breeze; the couple nailed the classic yet relaxed vibe, and laughs were plentiful. After strolling through the quaint old town and harbour for bridal photos we returned to a gorgeous afternoon ceremony overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The aperitif was served by the pool, and dinner was held at sunset on the grass terrace under a full moon. Still swooning.

Provençal Dreaming


What can one do with 36 hours in Provence? Depends how much sleep you're willing to get.

Lets say, hypothetically, you could:

eat truffle pasta outside on a huge wooden table at a country house

drink gold award wines from a vineyard surrounding you

explore a remodelled 18th century mansion

get lost 4 times

dance to international acts at a festival in Marseille

make new friends and business connections

visit Carrefour (this is always the longest part of any trip in france)

almost run out of fuel (twice)

have a campout

do a pre-sunrise photoshoot

build a fire

swim in ice cold lake water

visit a friend

wander through a quaint french village

munch on fruit and fresh parties on a paddle boat floating on Gorges du Verdon

poke through an antiques market behind a castle

buy Provencal food specialities

eat pizza on a cliff marvel at the towering cliffs of the Var

take in the full majesty of Lac du Saint Croix from above

say 'awwww' at cute the cute town of Moustier huddling under a huge mountainside

sniff the lavender growing in neat rows

buy famous olive tapanade from a man in a van

spend less than 70 euros

Come home to a big roast dinner and some well aged red wine.

Travelling through Provence provides some pretty good wedding photography inspiration. Its the French lifestyle.

Marseille Wedding - French Riviera

Said and Morgane celebrated their marriage with vintage inspiration, fun-filled hours in the streets of the hip, artistic district of Le Panier, and a rocking dance floor which was still going strong at 4am the following morning.

Wedding photos with the couple were taken amongst the graffiti and history of Marseille's oldest neighbourhood, perfectly complimenting their story together. Family and group photos were captured in the grounds of the Domaine du Castellet, in a customised outdoor photo booth, especially designed for their eclectic wedding.

Brisbane // Engagement Photo Session

Curtis and Tahnee are pretty much as gorgeous as they come, both inside and out. I mean, who else can make an engagement session on in suburban Brisbane look so damn good? The photos say it all. Sass.

Australian Wedding // Adelaide // South Australia

Em + Luca // Summer Wedding Adelaide

When looking for their contemporary wedding photographer, Em and Luca wanted someone they could relax around, have fun with. And that’s exactly what their wedding was. Fun.

"Youth and beauty. Summer wedding images with muscle cars. Classic elegance, tinted with the perfect amount of individuality, jovial antics and debonaire. Taste to set standards by. The historic Adelaide town hall, complete with a 4500 pipe organ. A perfect back drop for a night of festivities, Photo Booth antics, late night dancing, heartfelt speeches and the forging of memories to last a lifetime."
