Why we don’t pose people: an update!

In 2016, we put together a blog post about why we don’t have to pose you when we take your photos. We thought it was time to jump back into this topic and update it now that we’re a couple more years down the track with getting photos of people lookin’ so frickin’ natural. We’re…

Just Married: Ashlinn and Ben’s Byron Bay Wedding

Yesterday Ashlinn and Ben and their absolute closest, nearest and dearest family and friends (plus some chooks, and a dog) gathered under a big fig tree.
