Fashion - Rustic French Living | Donnybrook Photographer

 

I am just starting to catch up with blogging, this french rustic themed shoot was planned a few weeks in advance, to get the styling done by Jo Clark was awesome, and thanks to Jo Mcintoch for the venue at her Rustic French Living. Not forgetting the 2 awesome models Bec & Simone and Michelle for helping out.

French Rustic Living is located in Boyanup, Western Australia. It is actually an old church that was converted into this awesome french themed shop that sells products relating to their theme. When I first went there, I knew I need to have a session here, so I approached Jo, the owner and she was happy for me to plan for a shoot at her venue. I love the rustic feel of the place and natural lights would be perfect for the shoot. Here are some of the shots that I love and thanks again to the nice people who helped me put this whole thing together. Cheers

As I love natural lights, this session was done entirely just with natural lights.

Sharnee & Bass travelled from Hobart, Tasmania to have their wedding in the picturesque venue Aravina Estate. This amazing venue was selected for its variety of beautiful decorations, elegance and ambiance that suited them. It was actually my first time capturing a wedding there, we started at the vineyard and head towards the reception area where I later realised the decorations were stunning. The gardens around and interior was so amazing that I wished we have more time. Candles, flowers, hanging boat, mirrors and etc.

What I love most about this wedding is actually this lovely couple, stunning venue and amazing details will not be complete without a passionate couple in love. Their energy was so awesome that I can feel their passion from the captures. Although it was Sharnee's big day, but she handles things happily and calmly that made everyone around them feel so comfortable.

All the best to Sharnee + Bass and it was such a great pleasure capturing your wedding.

 

 

 

 

 

My Latest Addition

An additional lighting was added to my list of gears. This time, its a mobile lighting pack. I have been using speedlights all along, 3 units in total. Still loving it for weddings and events. But I find the power kinda limiting. Hence, the new addition. Its only a generic brand. Reason for not investing in branded besides the price, is  because I am not sure if I am going to be fully utilising it or just store it and collect dust. I already have a mountain of gears collecting dust :P.. So hopefully this wouldn't be one of it. Looking forward to test it out for fashion and portrait photography. undefined
