Claire & Dane’s Wedding | Melbourne Wedding Photograper

Wow, what can I say. It was such a pleasure to photograph Claire & Dane’s wedding at Studley Park Boathouse. A beautiful & lovely couple, an amazing and fun group of family and friends combined with a relaxed ceremony is such a winning combination.

C & D’s e-photo session | Melbourne Wedding Photographer

It was such a pleasure to photograph Claire and Dane for their pre-wedding photo session.

Their casual and fun attitude was extremely infectious, resulting in some great fun photos. 

However, you be the judge… you can also vote for your favourite image!

All weddings that I photograph include an engagement photography session just like this one.

It’s all about the light… | Melbourne Wedding Photographer

While looking up some information on sunset times for a photo shoot of a series of buildings I am doing, I thought…this is valuable information I should share with my wedding clients. 

Lighting is an extemely important factor to photography. Some which we can control (flash etc), some which we can’t (the sun).  It is very important that when you plan your wedding, that you utilise the best light for your photographs.  You do not want to be doing your photo session in the dark, because using only flash, is very unflattering.

The best time to take photographs is generally the couple of hours leading up to sunset and about half hour affter.  If you book Lizzy C Photography I am of course here to advise you on how to best utilise the available light.  We can also arrange the locations so as to use the best light available at the time at each location.  This is something we can experiment with during your included e-session, prior to the wedding.

This is a good starting guide which indicates sunset/sunrise times at different times of the year.

 

My wedding (1.11.08)

So if you are wondering why I haven’t made a post lately… it’s because last weekend I got married!!

My beautiful clients have been asking to see photos, and have sent lovely messages of congratulations so I thought I better deliver!

The wedding was all about the jazz age and many of the guests, could have steped right out of the 1920s!  We had a fantastic day, we got married here in Melbourne but guests came from all over including Hong Kong, Malaysia and Japan and of course many from Queensland.

Ben from Sunlit video productions is putting together a video for us, my fantastic friend Rebecca took the photos, and Melissa from the Ceremony store married us, just the way we wanted!

My mother dried thousands of rose petals and put together my bouquet, Rebecca and Jodie helped me make all the bits and pieces which made our wedding really personal and illustrate our creative flair and Robyn made us the best chocolate cake I’ve ever eaten! Thanks everyone for making our wedding what it was!

A different Liz’s “trash the dress session” {Melbourne wedding photographer}

 

 

 

 

 

What is a “trash the dress” session?

To some, the term “trash the dress” may sound scary or even a little crazy! But basically a trash the dress session with me can be as crazy as you want it to be.

Basically, you don’t have to literally “trash your wedding dress”, it might be just a photo session where you can be slightly more daring then you could be on your wedding day.

It gives you a chance to do some photos which might get your dress just a little dirty right through to soaking wet.  It’s completely up to you, on how far you go!

Some people say that it can act as a de-stressor after being a bride , others look at it as just great fun and a chance to get some really artistic and different photographs.

Don’t worry, if you are a little bit timid, and don’t want to go “all the way” contact me and I’ll talk to you about how great dry cleaners can be!

We can arrange trash the dress photo sessions with just the bride or the bride and groom.
