Kerrie's Bump to Baby Photo Sessions

Here's a post that's been nine months in the making.

We photographed Kerrie & Matt's wedding a couple of years ago (you can see those shots here) and were thrilled when she came to us with the idea of making a sequence of shots to document her pregnancy.

We shot several sessions spread out over the months, all with different looks and styles, but always a few dark moody shots with the intention of making a montage at the end.

Thanks to our friends over at Morley Hayes, we even managed some fairytale like shots in their beautiful woodland areas!

For one of the last sessions, we dragged Matt, and Donut the dog over to jump in a few shots too.

Donut the dog seemed less than impressed most of the time.

Considering the amount of money we have to spend on equipment and fancy lighting, one of my fave shots was the one below shot by simple soft window light.

Finally, we all got to say hello to baby Matilda!

Which also meant that we had the last shot required for the beautiful montage below...

Many congratulations to Kerrie, Matt, Matilda and Donut!

Jo & Richard's wedding at Melbourne Church

Melbourne Church I think has to be one of my favourites, it's easily in my top ten at least. A while ago I got to spend the afternoon down there with Richard and Jo and their fab families for a fun filled wedding day.

Things started off at Jo's parent's house where they were getting ready. When you get a smile like this for the very first shot of the day, you know things are going to be great :)

After we extracted the chaps from the pub over the road, we got a few shots of them walking up to church.

Below is one of the reasons I love Melbourne Church  - that doorway! More of that, later.

I'm a big fan of getting shots that are a bit more relaxed and and informal - sometimes totally candid. Luckily Charli the bridesmaid gave me plenty of chances.

THAT doorway again... Not done with it yet!

And for a photographer at a wedding, a viewpoint like this is just a gift...

For a final bit of extra drama we added some flash to the daylight and sat down on the ground with a good wide angle lens to show off the church doorway.

After the wedding everybody took a leisurely stroll to a local restaurant in the village for the reception. We decided to stay at church a little longer to finish a few more shots.

Sadly this time we didn't get chance to call in to the Melbourne Tea Rooms for cake sampling, but that just means I get double next time, right?

Congratulations Jo & Richard!
