Ethereal Fine Art Film Boudoir

This ethereal boudoir shoot is a beautiful example of how tasteful and truly romantic boudoir photography can be.  The minimalist white space and soft lace robe with the filled love of natural light bursting in set such a perfect space.  Highlights of blush pink and white were brought in through the florals to insinuate femininity and grace without clashing with the strong textures of  deep emerald green.

Luxurious Country Wedding - Mudgee NSW Australia

An oasis in the middle of the country.  Kate and Andrew were married in the cutest little county chapel a few hours from Mudgee NSW Australia. With a luxurious cocktail reception on Andrews family farm "Gullendah".  Kate wore a simple sundress with lace trim detail throughout by Zimmerman while Andrew was looking very stylish in his MJ Bale suite. It was not your typical November weather this year.  The family farm had a lot of rain before their wedding day, which made for picture square lush green gardens.  The farm also backed onto a national park with stunning mountain views, this landscape made for amazing wedding photos.  Not to mention the beautifully presented and delicious canapés and dessert table by Mudgee Made Catering for guests to enjoy during the twilight cocktail hour under fairy lights.

Elegant Beach Elopement - Phuket Thailand

Are you thinking of or planning your ultimate destination wedding?  This blog is for YOU!

This shoot was created to inspire brides dreaming of that intimate, secluded beach elopement wedding day.  Couples who want to connect with each other in a quiet and intimate tropical surrounding where the sand is white and the water is crystal blue.  Just the two of them and the pure beauty of Mother Nature and her island. 

I can not thank Jeanette from Luxury Events Phuket enough for her amazing support and commitment to make this all work, going above and beyond for me from the first email to the day we first meet in Phuket.  If you are thinking of planning a wedding in Phuket she should be your first step.  

Manager Nam from Anantara could not do enough for us on the day and was so accommodating for our shoot.  A bride and groom would be overwhelmed with the hospitality of all the vendors that came on board to help me pull this off.  Despite the tropical thunder storm in the afternoon that took up a good hour of our beach shooting time.  You can still capture the raw essence for your day in spite of mother nature having her fun. 

Couple featured in this shoot are Lana and Justin Hanka.  Lana is wearing the stunning 'Stasia' gown by Gwendolynne, pure elegance and beauty.  

Thank you for visiting and I hope you love this blog as much as we all do.

Shot on my beloved contax645 with Portra400, film is my love and passion.  Film developed by the amazing team Photo Vision Prints.
