This year began with Alyce and Colette Photographers. In March, we set the wheels in motion to re-brand and become Cloud Catcher Studio, which we launched in May of this year. Bringing the studio to life has been a dream of mine for the longest time, ever since I emerged from the womb double-packing a Leica in my left hand and a Contax in my right*. Even though I’ve been doing this work for a few years, suddenly running the show all on my own felt like (what I imagine) bringing home a newborn baby would be like.

Initially that prospect was frickin’ terrifying. But the second we got back into weddinging and I had my camera in my hands and my friends by my side, I was home.

Here is just the tiniest little glimpse at what we have turned our cameras toward this year. We have a bunch of editorial work which we aren’t allowed to share yet – so there’s all that stuff missing from here! To all the incredibly talented wedding creatives we’ve had the opportunity to work with this year: thank you. To all the couples who invited us in on their happiest, stressiest, excitingest, wildest, rollercoasteriest, beautifulest days: thank you. You are clearly the best and the smartest and the most wonderful and beautiful and handsome and sparkly and incredible brides and grooms on the planet.

To my studio mates, to my dear friends, to my family, my husband, my horse – thank you for being there with me, for cheering us all on, for rolling with this crazy idea and giving it the time and the patience and the love it (and I) needed to bloom.

Bros, Ladybros, Cloud Catcher is not even a whole year old yet. We haven’t even gone full balls to the wall. Our balls are not even close to the wall yet. Our balls are actually quite a distance from the wall right now. Just you wait. We are so excited for 2017.

Have a shandy for us, kiss your loved ones, and enjoy the holidays.

*I don’t remember my own birth but I have it on good authority this statement is untrue, I actually haven’t owned a Leica

P.S. Getting hitched in 2017? If you’ve made it this far and you think your wedding photos should be balls to the wall: let’s get it poppin’


OMG GUYS!!! they are so fabulous!!

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!

Hello cloud catchers,

All I can say is wow the photos are amazing and everything we wanted out of the day. The finer detail is incredible thank you so much.
Nikohl and Ben
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!

These are AMAZING! I can not even begin to thank you enough! These pictures are beautiful and are totally everything we were hoping for and more. Thank you again!

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….

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
