Rhian & William While sometimes we’ll use the tripod, this wedding called for free hold. I Love the organic feel that it brings. Shout out to Josh Dobrik for all your awesome help with this. It’s counter intuitive, but a small amount of jiggle helps put the viewer in the scene. I personally love this effect, it’s all about creating a spontaneous, intimate atmosphere - feeling as close to being there as possible.
Rhianna & Jules This was a journey to a private family property secreted away from the world! Mainly shot with the 24-70 which I absolutely love, most of this work is set on a tripod with less walking and movement. The tripod makes everything more serene and cinematic. The 7 piece band really rocked this reception. Thanks to Beth Cole for helping out on this shoot!
Shantelle & John For this shoot we journeyed to Tangalooma Island off the coast of South east Queensland. A torrential downpour didn't dampen spirits, and for film, I actually like the atmosphere rain provides. Drones aren’t allowed on the island, but there's always a way to get those stunning scenic shots. The sun revealed itself a few times, and we made the most of that!
Girls on the Beach This was a trip down to Green Bowl beach in Bali in between shoots with my Daughters. I went looking for bohemian style matching dresses but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted so I had them custom made. The day was perfect and yep the water was really that blue! Although after the 350 steps down back up we were ready for a coconut on the cliff. Girls had a great time trashing the dresses too :)
Courtney & Brenton This wedding was set in a remote place ages from anywhere along the Murray River. The serenity was interspersed with chasing speedboats which would occasionally rocket up the river with waterskiers in tow. The venue was a charming family holiday house near the river, easy to film. Everyone was so relaxed and setting came up nice on the drone.
Leah & Grisel I never get sick of seeing the Opera House and the Harbour bridge. The sunny days are always the best for weddings but pose a challenge when shooting on the go. This day was super bright so I donned my variable ND filters to control light. I also had a second shooter with me to help out with different angles. The band were cooking - the dance floor was really happening.
Molly & James This wedding was way down in Alowyn Gardens nestled deep in the Yarra Valley, east of Melbourne. My favourite part of this wedding was the bridal waltz, I used a 35mm Sigma art lens, getting in close - I wanted the viewer to feel like they were part of the dance. A fun technical challenge was filming the 4 black cars - I was in the 5th car directing the drivers (and my driver) on the phone!
Jodie & Jake Another beautiful water wedding, set this time on the Brisbane river upstream from the City. After speeches, it was all about the dancing. I used the 50mm Sigma for this but for some of the ceremony shots I used my trusty canon 70 - 200. In a spare moment, I found some lovely ladies blowing bubbles in the sunset and managed to get it in super slow motion. Enjoy!
Novita & David Travelling is the best part of filming and it kind of rules shooting down in the South east of Bali! Part of this video includes a pre wedding shoot on the beach which was a great way to get to know the couple. My favourite moment at this wedding was the family ceremony bonding the Bride and Groom through prayer ritual. Ending the night with giant sparklers is also cool :)
