‘Alright guys, next spot!’ I said, racing ahead to see if the light had fallen low enough to shoot in the paddock yet.

‘There’s a lot more to this photo thing than I thought, with the light and stuff’ I heard Alex say quietly to Hayley as they followed behind.

Before they got married, Hayley and Alex and I met on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere.

Literally, nowhere. I have no idea how we managed to find each other out there. We’d been chatting about their e-shoot and their wedding for aaaages, but still, they are kindhearted people to trust me with such a random location. The brief was outback/country flavour. I think we nailed it.

I could sense that they were a tad apprehensive about being photographed, so I let them throw dirt at each other and pull silly faces and I laughed and shot from a safe distance. Eventually we all warmed up and they held each other close and whispered nice things to each other (mostly nice things).

To spend this beautiful afternoon with me, it took a little stress out of this wedding day they had been imagining for so long. They realised being photographed was kind of fun, definitely not a stressful or worrisome thing. By the time their wedding rolled around, they were old pros at this photo-ing business.

Thank you guys for trusting me, being so sweet and so silly and so yourselves, and making beautiful images with me!

When we first started planning this wedding just a few months ago, finding a photographer nearly did my head in because I was so hell bent on finding someone who would capture the day in a way that truly reflected us and our relationship. Well, we had to go to Brisbane to find them, but Alyce and Ash have surpassed my wildest dreams! Can’t wipe the grin off my face right now….

James hasn’t looked through them all yet – he’s only seen a handful but he’s in love already. And me – well I’m ecstatic! they’re wonderful guys – we love them and we love you! They brought back all the feels and we’re so happy and thrilled with the day and the photos. I’m laughing in nearly every photo – I clearly had a good day! hahahaha!!! Thanks again lovelies – you truly are just the best and are total babin’ Queen camera ninjas!

Hiiiiii Alyce and Alex,
Thank you so much for your email. You’re probably going to laugh reading this but I was finally able to access this email after I finally achieved one of my life goal of taking a selfie with a llama and was like “yasssss best day EVER”. As we finally connected to wifi for me to upload one of my 500 llama shots I saw your email. Poor Brett thought I had really lost the plot as I burst into happy tears in the hotel lobby and then showed all these random Peruvian hotel workers the pictures saying “holy shit, this is us’.
I was so so worried on the day as when I get nervous / anxious I screw my face up like an angry potato and was silently freaking out I had ruined your pictures but your pics make me look nothing of the potato variety! They are stunning and both Brett and I can’t believe we scrubbed up so good haha.
Thank you for capturing those tender moments between us. I’m so in love with the pics!
Cheers,
Nat (and Brett aka her kiwi gentleman lover) xx

I just wanted to say thankyou so much for Saturday. We had a blast sharing the day with you. You are such talented photographers but also awesome, caring and top women. We had such a magical day and you helped make me feel as beautiful as I ever will. Your care, love, effort and pride in your work did not go un-noticed. We would recommend you to everyone.
Lots of love xxxx
