Well, I was right again! Lisa looked absolutely beautiful yesterday! Her dress was so magnificent, perfect for a church wedding!
Hayley and Julia were great bridesmaids...
And gorgeous in their own right!
And for all you detail junkies:
Chris' Dad shows him how it's done.
Greeting the wedding guests as they arrive at the church.
I LOVE this photo! I love how Paul has managed to keep a sense of movement, while Chris had paused for a moment.
And then they arrive!
The first look, how cute!
St Mary's Church is so photogenic! Paul snuck up to the balcony to grab this.
And they're married! Lisa is just glowing!
I think this may just be my favourite group photo yet! It was so chilly outside, I couldn't bare to drag everyone out. I think that may have been a blessing in disguise.
And then off to have some more photos taken! Spring in Pollard Park, you just gotta love it!
You know, they're laughing at me lying on my back on the cold grass. This must have been the funniest scene to passers by!
And then off to Montana! It's the second wedding in a row to go there! It's no wonder, it's a really great place for a reception.
The barrel room was almost empty, but it did mean there was room to play!
The reception has started....
Thanks so much for including us in your special day guys! It was just lovely, and I can't wait to show you the rest of the photos!

I have caved to the social pressure of creating our own photography facebook page, so if you're a facebook type of person - come on over, become a fan and lets hang out! It'll be more informal than the blog, with mini updates, before and after pics and it's easier for us to interact. Come on over and say hi, you know you want to!
Today I had the great pleasure of having an engagement shoot with Lisa and Chris. They're getting married on Saturday, and I can't wait!
It's almost impossible to take a bad picture of Lisa, somehow she knows exactly where to put herself to get the best picture, she's just gorgeous!
One of the first things Lisa asked for was cherry blossoms, we found some on the far side of Pollard Park. We took plenty of them under the tree - then I just had to get among the blossoms.... and funnily enough, this is my favourite shot!
I love this little brick wall and I often try and use it in shots. Other than looking good, I don't think it actually has a purpose? Works for me though!
These guys are so lovely together, it really wasn't very difficult to capture their chemistry.
Love it! LOVE it!
I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with these guys this afternoon. They really were happy to try pretty well anything! I love this one, Chris looks like a superhero - so great!
See what I mean when I say that Lisa really works it well!
Chris did pretty well too! In fact, he was our ideas man. I wouldn't have thought of going on the golf course, but it worked!
I'll leave you with my favourite for the day. There is a whole series of these - but I've already put in too many pictures for it to be a preview, so I'll just stop right here!
I can't wait for Saturday! I just know we're going to have a blast! Watch this space on Monday - I for one can't wait to see these two all dressed up and getting married!
What a wonderful start to the wedding season! We've known Ben from Windhawk Helicopters for a while now, he takes Paul on all those marvelous helicopter jobs. I've been looking forward to this wedding, not only because Ben is our friend, but also because I knew Alice would be a beautiful bride, and I was certainly not dissapointed!
I'm such a sap. For some reason this wedding got to me. There were beautiful moments all day, I simply had to collect them.
Check out the time on the watch. The wedding was at 3pm, ten minutes to go!
I know I've said it before, but YAY for Pink Poppie!
This next photo is my favourite of the day. I can just stare at it for ages. A 'mother of the bride' moment. Absolutely stunning.
Meanwhile Paul is with Ben while he gets ready.
Wow, this one gets me too. How gorgeous!
While Ben was saying his vows you could really tell that he meant every word. Sometimes I wish I took video as well, I don't think anyone could watch it without getting a little teary!
I'm pretty sure Ben's parents could tell that he meant it too.
Time for some quick portraits. Although it looked warm, the day was absolutely FREEZING! Poor Alice is an Aussie girl, and I don't think she enjoyed the arctic feel in the air!
This is actually where they live, up on this hill. Not too shabby a view!
Can you tell these two are brothers?!
Into the Limo...
And then off to Montana!
And a 'mother of the groom' moment. You can see why I adored this wedding, can't you?
Alice and Ben, what an amazing day it was. We were so thrilled to be part of it - there are still sooooo many more moments to show you, I can't wait! See you when you get back!
In other news: You'll notice that the blog has slightly changed to allow for larger images. Paul's been busily programming to make the pictures look even bigger and better. I'm sorry to those of you still on dialup!
