Hannah and Cameron got married at a great time and place for light. Winter in Australia. Yes it was cool-ish in the shade, but in the sun it's a special kind of warmth. The light comes in at a wonderful angle, and there isn't a time of the day that the light looks too harsh. Summer weddings have such harsh sunlight that it's crucial to plan outdoor ceremonies in the shade or late afternoon. It's amazing how different the light is in SoCal or the South (US), it's softer there all year round.
It was an honor to be there for Han and Cam. The groomsmen were hilarious, especially the best man who chose to make fun of your's truly in his speech. There has only been one guest at a wedding that is more memorable for me this year, and that guest licked my face on the dance floor - no joke! I had never been to Maleny in Queensland, let alone to photograph a wedding. The unusual mountains jut right out of an otherwise quite flat landscape - a dramatic backdrop that is iconic of the region. I flew all the way from Chattanooga in Tennessee just to shoot it, and then I flew all the way back. A long flight and some seriously confused circadian rhythms but I'm very happy I made the trip.

Because this wedding was so much fun, I'll have to relax in this description. I'll try to not sugar coat it from the start. So to start on a balanced note, this Tocal wedding day was super hot. Super duper humid. Sweaty. But it was just so lovely that everyone got swept away with the joy-train. People are often very worried about the weather on a wedding day. Over and over again we see days like this. Transcendent! Take a look and let us know if you have a Tocal wedding in the making. Or more specifically, a wedding at the beautiful Mindaribba House. Our bride and groom, Brooke and Konrad are good friends of ours. It was such a treat to be there for this lovely day. #broradforever!
So there it is! Get in touch with us here if you'd like to have a chat. Otherwise there should be a comment section below. Clicking on the title at the beginning of the blog post will make it appear at the bottom if you don't see it. We'd like to thank the staff at Mindaribba house and all the friends and family of Brooke and Konrad. Extra special thanks to Ben with his amazing floral designs. Check out his stuff at http://www.waitingforgeorge.com . Thanks too to the beautiful region around Tocal. Wedding paradise. Before I forget, thanks also to Sam Vincent of White Lane Studio. He did the video on the day and it's always a pleasure having him around. He has a dry sense of humour so he'll probably think I'm joking when he reads this. If you ever hire him or see him at a wedding, take heed, be warned. The dryness and sarcasm is deadly. Thanks for reading and looking. If you're a photographer and would like some technical information, don't hesitate to get in touch.
here), was an all time favourite. We've never seen a bride dominate the floor with such enthusiasm! The mother/daughter dance was the highlight of the day for us. They are completely free spirited.

Our friends Adam and Laura said their "I do's" in a quaint chapel in the woods. Laura's fiery red hair set the tone for the day - FUN! We loved every detail of their wedding and were so honored to be the wedding photographers. The miniature pony was a very fitting surprise as Laura affectionately refers to Adam as "pony". Then there was the dog that showed up on the dance floor. This wedding had it all: babies, animals, suspenders, rad cars, fun people and a steamy romance. Oh, and cupcakes!
