‘Joel, if you’re cool with it, could you … sit… in front of the toilet?’

I took a few steps back. I took a shot. It was too high. I needed to get down lower. I crouched down. Nope. Too high still. And that’s how I found myself (like many cool kids before me) lying on the floor in the toilets at Brooklyn Standard.

But this isn’t about me rolling around on toilet floors. This is about true love and well-spent youth and sweet romance over super sized cokes at maccas and double mohawks and the best Joel ever. This is about a super sweet, beautiful, smart, funny girl (that’s you Lauren) meeting her rough diamond with the sharp haircut and building a life together and FINALLY – FINALLY. Making it official yesterday.

Yesterday we followed these guys and their family and friends around as they drank the whiskey said the vows and signed the paperwork and charged through busy weekend crowds in fading light and drank in their favourite bar and then drank with their favourite people. If you were at this wedding, and your memory is a little foggy (that’s… every last one of you, you wild things), holla at Lara or I for a more detailed recount. I suspect you’re here for a stickybeak and their photos though, and you’re in luck mofos. I have photos for you! Can I put a language warning on their photos? Um, F-bombs ahead. Hide yo kids.

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

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.

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

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!
