Giannis Portside – Jess & Jay 15th September – what a hoot !

Welcome to our Real Life Weddings page !

This is where the spotlight shines on all of the amazing weddings that we shoot !

Today the spotlight is on Jess & Jay’s beautiful Brisbane Wedding !

Lisa & I started our day with the boys and from the moment we walked in the door the laughs didn’t stop all day !

The couples who’s weddings I’ve shot this year have really been a lot of fun !

It’s hard to call what I do work but it’s even harder to convince people that I really do work hard when you’re telling everyone you spend your day laughing with your clients .. !

But it’s true …!  Honest ..!

With conflicting reports of what time our boys had gotten in the night before the wedding surprisingly they were all bright eyed and bushy tailed !
