Wedding of Naomi and Mark, 4th October, Brisbane.

The 4th of October was the perfect day for a wedding. The weather was glorious and it was neither hot nor cold. What more could a bride and groom ask for?

This is my first wedding working alongside Alex since last December and we were soon back to our usual banter and competitiveness. It was as though I had never been away. We both went and shot the boys first and they were wonderfully cool, calm and collected enjoying shooting pool on a wonky table. They were a great group of guys who were happy to joke around and have some fun. Shooting them was a breeze and very soon we were headed over to the girls.

The girls were a little behind schedule but they did a great job of pulling it all together (in the midst of getting their photos taken). We love it when we get emotional brides and Naomi didn't disappoint us. When she was dressed and ready and standing in front of her mum and dad, she shed a few tears and still looked simply beautiful. There was an obvious closeness with her family and her attendants and it was so nice to see everyone work together harmoniously to get it all happening.

Naomi and Mark opted for a mass along with their wedding service and it was such a powerful experience hearing nearly a nearly full church lift their voices in song to celebrate their union. It's not often we see a mass with the service so we felt very honoured to be a part of it all.

Soon after the service we were off to Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens for photos. Naomi and Mark were now completely at ease and everyone enjoyed a drink while we strolled around. The girls were quite entertaining and eerily accurate with their Tyra Banks impressions.

The photos were finished off atop Mt Cootha at sunset before heading into The Summit restaurant for their reception. It was a wonderfully happy day with few hiccups and a very loving couple.

Naomi and Mark had their pre-wedding shoot with us just a couple of weeks earlier and this made them both so at ease in front of the camera on their wedding day. We thoroughly recommend that couples take advantage of engagement/pre wedding shoots as the results really do speak for themselves.

Congratulations Naomi and Mark.
