A few days before the wedding, I ventured to Wollongong to hang out with Jonny and Jo. They had almost settled into their new home-to-be and we took a drive down south to look around for some locations we could take photos on the wedding day. I always try to spend as much time with my couples as possible before the wedding day, and I’m always glad I get to because I end up making friends and always feel like I’m part-taking in their celebration with them, not just turning up to take photos.
We talked for hours while we were scouting, and for the most part, it wasn’t even about the wedding. I love it when you can connect with people beyond the reason you’ve been brought together and get to just be humans together, chatting about anything and everything.
Their day was special. They had so many small, personal touches and sentimental things that were incorporated into their day that just made it so unique to them. Jo walked down the aisle to a piece that her father composed for her when she was growing in the womb, which he intended to be the precessional (I’m not crying, you’re crying!).
These guys are so incredibly down to Earth and relaxed, I hardly felt like I was ‘working’ on the day, which is always a good sign for me. I’m so thankful that I got to work with these legends. I hope you enjoy their wedding, and as always, if these photos resonates with you and you’re getting married down on the South Coast, I’d love to hear from you, so get in touch and let’s be friends!
