Kirby & Sean - Warehouse love

A beaut Januray day with good weather, a ceremony with great surprises along with a fun & quirky priest.  The day was great fun with entertaining family members & bridal party.  

A few words from Kirby - Both Donna & Ben were fantastic, you captured our day in a natural and timeless manner that we both LOVE. There is absolutely nothing that we would change about our photos. You made all of us feel relaxed and always seemed to know which side was the good side :) We had a great time on the locations that you found for us, That warehouse was a gem! We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication to help make our day so wonderful - Kirby

Indie Lane - 2013 Highlights

Where to start with my thoughts with our last wonderful year of Indie Lane Weddings. We really are very forutnate to meet such beautiful couples and document their day. Above all my favourite thing about our business is all the people we get to meet, from hearing the stories of how couples meet, watching the excitement of the parents, the laughs and tears - we are really in it for the people. And what amazing couples we have had this year. Thank you for choosing us to be part of your day!!

A big special thanks goes to awesome photographers, Kristen, Emma, Ben and Lauren all who have been an influential part of our year. Along with the photographers and business owners I surround myself with, the 'epic' crew in our studio, networking peeps, coffee catch ups and supporting phone calls - Thanks for the daily inspiration!!

I am also very fortunate to have a business mentor Greg, which started as a random chat on a Darwin plane and has now developed into an amazing leading support for my future. A final big thanks to my Dad, who really gets who I am and is my grounding voice when I need it most :)

2013 = being Grateful
I look forward to next year of smiles, laughs and chasing the light - Thanks for reading - Donna

Jade & Fav's Magicial Dandenong Day

They do say your wedding day is one of the best days of your lives, being the photographer for two adorable good friends of mine was such a privilege and exciting experience.  I just love being a part of their day, capturing all hilariously funny and cheeky moments, emotions, nerves, friends and family.  Tatra in the Dandenongs was a beautiful setting for their ceremony and made for one memorable evening at reception and the after party.  Can't wait for the album to arrive next week - Love you Jade & Fav...

 

Thank you pressie of homemade italian sausages and the sweetest hand written card :)

Mel & Rob's Wedding - Mansfield Wonderland - 'The Hideout'

I was so stoked to meet Mel & Rob, such a happy and humblel couple. Once I realised I would be sharing my birthday with them I was excited to see the creative 'book' theme reception and what 'The Hideout' had to offer. I had my beautiful sister along for the day to assist me. From the moment we drove down the bush tracks to discovering 'The Hideout' huts beside the river, I was inspired at ever corner of this area. Mel & Rob had the most amazing bridal party - 14 of their closest friends and family, who made their day full of laughter and fun. Growing up in bush areas such as this and feeling like I had know Mel & Rob for years (who are similiar to so many of all my beautiful friends) I feel so lucky to have been asked to capture their special day and tell their story.

Megan & B's Whimsical Wedding - Williamstown

I have been friends with Meg's for over 10 years, I was delighted to be part of her wedding photography alongside the talented Tori Simson.  No one can pull off a unique chick "coiffe" like the beautiful Megan. I have watched her and B's love blossum over time, I had a quick teary when Meg pulled on her stunning dress.  Getting hitched under a shaded oak tree and cruising around Willy town in a Kombi accompanied by her awesome bridal party made for a great day :)

Vintage Barn Wedding - Anna & Andy in Longford Tasmania

I was giggling with the joy after Anna & Andy flew me to Longford, Tasmania for their uniquely vintage wedding.  All the details were so charming, from a cool bunch of bridemaids who call each other dude (like me and my gals) to an amazing bunch of friends and family helping make the day so special. The whole crew made me feel so welcome, the barn was one of best the spaces i have had the privilege of capturing a reception in.  Even though the temperature outside was below "uncomfortable to be outside" degress the bridal parties warmth brought some great laughs and energy to the day.  It was so nice to have such a memorable first trip to Tassie.
