When I’m speaking with the bride and groom about their wedding day, and the most important parts of the day for them, it’s almost always including this part of the ceremony. Moments like this are unrepeatable. Reactions like this are priceless.

How do I Choose a celebrant for my Wedding? | Mornington Peninsula Wedding Photographer

The ceremony is the whole reason for organizing your big day and so it deserves a bit of planning and forethought.

5 Ways to Feel More Confident in Front of the Camera

I hear people say all the time how much they hate being photographed. And I get it. As a kid, I didn’t care. Somewhere along the way that changed.
