seng + yi: wedding

After a wonderful wedding in Vanuatu, Seng & Yi came home for a small celebration at Centennial Park with their families. We had a great time doing location photos around the park (thank you weather for not pouring) and a world record fast tea ceremony! Their day ended with a Chinese banquet at Kam Fook restaurant in Chatswood.

Some pics from the day…(might be a bit long, I always have trouble picking photos!)

These images with the weeping willows are some of my fav from this shoot. We were lucky to get a breeze as that helps give the branches a little bit of movement.

These next two are my favs…and can’t decide whether I like the B&W or colour more.

Somewhere here Seng was telling Yi to “relax man”. I can’t help but crack up every time I hear him use “man” with her hehe.

Esmond captured this one. I love it…especially Yi’s trademark laugh =)

Bubbles and tea.

I’ve been to Kam Fook before but never noticed these chandeliers before…guess I was always looking at the food =p

Big congratulations to Seng and Yi. I know you guys will be smiling and laughing together forever…man =)

sarah + adrian: engagement

When we were teeing up a time for the engagement session, Sarah asked jokingly “We’d like good weather, could you arrange that?”. I smiled to myself thinking “Wish I could. That’d be quite nifty”. Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as I started driving out that day, the sky turned grey and it started to rain.

Adrian flew all the way from the UK to propose to Sarah just days before the shoot. It was only a short visit and this session couldn’t be rescheduled. Determined not to disappoint anybody, I drove out to Balmoral Beach anyway, hoping for the best. Luck was on their side and soon the sun came out to play.

We had a lovely afternoon strolling up and down the beach. When I think of Sarah and Adrian, I remember little moments like her folding up his sleeves and him looking at her adoringly. Words like “sweet”, “relax” and “cosy” comes to mind which makes a beach location just so fitting.

Here are some photos.

Tree roots…S & A must’ve been thinking “What’s Natt doing??”

I really like how the B&W turned out in this set. The light makes the conversion less contrasty and a lot more clean =)

I love how these two next shots unfolded so natrually =)

Sarah & Adrian – Have a fantastic wedding in the UK next year. I wish I could be there to capture your big day!
