Lauren & Tim

Lauren & Tim's wedding was a dream to photograph for a few different reasons: 1. They're are hilarious and heaps of fun to hang out with 2. They chose an amazing location to get married (Grazing) 3. Lauren is super creative so everything looked beautiful, especially the cake which she made! Yep that amazing 1 metre high cake was made by Lauren, she's the brains behind Shakespeare's Cakesphere...if you're looking for a cake then she's your lady! Side note: Annika & I can testify that the cake tasted amazing too, Lauren made sure we got some and it was delicious.

Rowena & Chris

Rowena & Chris are kind of people I could talk to for hours, every time we met we would quickly deviate from wedding talk towards every other topic you can think of, TV (of course), travel, sports...anything really. They made Annika and I feel so welcome at their wedding and I'm just so thankful that they chose us to be their wedding photographers. I was also super impressed with how beautiful everything was at their wedding, when I made this comment to Rowena she replied "I was very careful not to make everything too girly, this is Chris' wedding too"...what a thoughtful bride!

Carlie & Ricky

When I first met Carlie & Ricky and they told me they were getting married on the 4th May cause they love Star Wars (may the fourth be with you), I knew I wanted to shoot their wedding! I had very high expectations going into their wedding that the 'nerd factor' was going to be high and I wasn't disappointed...their wedding was full of everything from Harry Potter to Lord of the Rings (including the vows). Did I also mention that Carlie & Ricky are also amazing swing dancers? Their dance is officially the best first dance I've ever was amazing!

Chris & Natalie

I was nervous as we drove to Sydney the morning of Natalie & Chris' wedding, we were going to an unfamiliar area and taking the photos of a couple that I'd never met before. But as soon as we arrived all my anxieties were put to rest...Natalie, her bridesmaids and family made Annika and I feel so welcome. Natalie even made Annika vegemite on toast cause she wasn't feeling well...what a woman!

Skye & Dave

Skye & Dave's wedding was one of the most emotional and best I've ever attended. I won't go into personal details, but leading up to Skye & Dave's big day something huge happened to Skye's family and they seriously considered calling the wedding off. But thankfully they didn't and the wedding went was amazing to see the support of their friends and family! I spent most of the wedding in awe of Skye & Dave's community, they have the most wonderful people around them...people who made sure that their wedding was the terrific!

Rob & Liz

Many of you know that in the Thorson household we have a tradition of eating mexican food and watching B grade "mega" Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus or Mega Piranha. The only criteria for these movies is that there must be a giant prehistoric animal of some kind and that the star of the movie must be a washed up 80's pop Tiffany. The other important part to these movie nights is that we must always have them with Rob & Liz, so when they got engaged and asked me to be their wedding photographer I was super excited and only a little disappointed that the wedding wasn't going to be mega shark themed.

Georgia & Elliott

Georgia & Elliott's wedding was wonderful, with the perfect amount of laughter and tears. Through out the day Tuli and I just kept saying to each other "isn't this great? These guys are the best!" and then a few minutes later we'd say it again. Thank you so much Georgia & Elliott for choosing us, it was a privilege to take your photos and to be a part of your amazing wedding day!

Ben & Jo

Ben & Jo, I can't help but smile when I think about them! They are so much fun to be around and their wedding day was a blast, with the prefect amount of laughter and tears (a lot of both).

Simon & Gabrielle

As a photographer it's both exciting and super intimidating to take wedding photos of someone with strong creative ideas...that's Gabrielle. She is a graphic designer with amazing style...I knew this the moment I walked into their house (it's beautiful), I also new that I must take their wedding photos cause it was going to be awesome! And it was.

Will & Sam

Will & Sam got married at Redbrow Garden in November last year and it was amazing. The couple, their friends and family put so much energy into every detail and it showed! Words are failing me today, this wedding was just so beautiful (I cried at least three times) and Sam & Will made us feel so welcome...take a look at their photos and you'll understand.

Karen & Shane

Karen & Shane are big TV nerds like me, so as soon as we met it was a perfect match! Their wedding was just so much fun...I had a laughter headache at the end of the day.

Jess & Bernie

Jess & Bernie got married on a Saturday full of weird weather. One minute it was sunny, then the next second it rained and back and forth it went...never quite making up its mind. But Jess & Bernie were so into each other and getting married the weather didn't matter at all (the way it should be!). They're really one of the craziest and funniest couples I've ever photographed, Bernie is also the only groom who's ever accused me of having a crush on him!

Michelle & Piero

When I first met Michelle and Piero we bonded over People of Walmart and I remember leaving the meeting thinking "this is the best match ever, I love these guys and their wedding is going to be a blast!". Well I wasn't disappointed! Michelle and Piero's wedding was perfect, they put so much effort into organising everything from Sydney and it really showed. There were all sorts of little details (things I never would have thought of) that made the day very personal, for both the couple and their guests. It was one of those days where one second everyone was laughing hysterically and then balling their eyes was awesome!

Mel & Joe

I love Mel and Joe, they are the best! They managed to incorporate zombies into their marriage more proof of how great they are is needed. Throughout their wedding day I had to keep reminding myself, "Amanda these are not your besties be professional!" Because Mel and Joe made us so welcome, I felt more like a guest than the photographer. I don't think I've ever laughed this much at a wedding! Mel and Joe crack me up, to the point where I was struggling to take photos during their speech...I may have been crying with laughter.

Genevieve & James

I loved Genevieve and James' wedding! It was so simple, yet it was missing nothing. There were no bridesmaids, groomsmen, bouquets, white dress or anything really traditionally 'weddingish'. Instead there was an incredible apricot dress, a younger brother's punk band and lots of family and friends. This was a truly balanced wedding where relationships came first and details were almost non-existent.

Reto & Marita

I remember the first time I spoke to Marita, I was at the Fyshwick Fresh Food Markets and my phone rang. I answered and on the other end of the line was one of the coolest brides I've ever had the pleasure of photographing. As soon as we started chatting we hit it off, Marita explained ideas for her wedding...popcorn, fairy floss, a rockabilly band and I responded with excited remarks like "yes!", "perfect!" and "awesome!". Pretty quickly the conversation moved to the fact that Marita's fiancé Reto was Swiss and that they really wanted to incorporate parts of his culture into the wedding day. As I listened to Marita's ideas and learnt more about her and Reto's relationship all I could think was "please book me, please book me, please book me!!!". So needless to say I was super pumped when…
