Emma & Daniel | Adelaide Wedding Photographer

One of the perks of this job is getting to experience a wide variety of cultures and traditions. One I hadn't really known a whole lot about up until recently was the goings on of a Romanian wedding. 

Emma and Daniel didn't initially come to me with the goings on or what to expect until the morning of. I got to Daniel's parents home in the Northern Suburbs of Adelaide and we started chatting and before I knew it I was entirely encapsulated in this very family oriented culture. Where families are huge and welcoming and food is forever being thrown in your general direction and where weddings are a big deal for everyone. 

Love fuels more love in this environment and Emma and Daniel are proof of this. Australia's Romanian community is apparently much larger than what I was aware of and they met at an engagement party for another couple in the community. It was love at first sight and even through two years long distance (as someone doing this myself I can definitely empathise with how hard this can be!) their love for each other blossomed and they found their forever person in one another. 

Mandie & Jack | Noosa Wedding Photographer

Despite all odds, Jack and Mandie made their wedding day happen their way. The last few years have been far from easy with health being a major concern. I've mentioned this before on Facebook and Instagram and the morning of the wedding while Mandie was getting ready she mentioned to me that she really wanted to make sure that she was able to dance at her wedding. At the very least, she wanted to have a first dance with Jack. It was brief, but it was absolutely perfect and I was touched to be able to capture that moment. 

I was also absolutely stoked to hang out with a bunch of fellow goofballs and just hang out and really enjoy the day. 

The Maas Family | Boston Family Photographer

Last time I saw Jessie and Jay they were newlyweds in Australia who just announced they were expecting a little one. This time around I was in Massachusetts for a whirlwind 24 hour visit with my favourite little family and my new favourite small person, Dean. 

Watching one of my closest friends grow into their new life as an amazing mum and wife is very surreal but in the same time super exciting. And while we have no plans at the moment for babies in the near future, I'd be lying if I said that this little guy didn't at least make me a little clucky.
