South Coast, NSW

Those pockets of time that you truly get lost in...where you forget about the people, jobs, things, problems, schedules, emails, expectations, to-do lists...where instead you chose to reset your soul to focus on an overriding hopefulness, are aware of beauty, in awe of the land, satisfied with small things, rested, content, warm, peaceful yet ready for all kinds of adventure. That was this weekend. The smell of fruit on the tree, a pastel pink haze hanging over the ocean at sunset, cold morning air, dirt roads that all lead upward, being at the top of the hill, cow calling and cold noses. Lounging by the fireside, finding new songs & a giddy excitement when realising how close heaven really is.

A few moments from a few weddings that I've photographed this year. I am so very lucky to be let in on these most special days and always grateful to have a large hunk of camera in front of my face to hide that tear trickling down my cheek. All your love gives me little goosebumps! A follow up post to come as this is only a tiny slice of what I have seen.

ps. If you know anyone who's in love and getting married please feel free to email me. Now taking bookings for 2015! xx
