A walk in the Park......

Clint and Marie

It’s always exciting to meet new couples and hear their stories of adventure. I say adventure because life/love is tough and when one person is from a west Australian wheatbelt town and the other is from Germany you can bet your cotton socks that this beautiful couple would have a story to tell.

A story they did.

There was so much love in the room. It was like a romantic mist sweeping across everyone in attendance. The laughter, hugs and tears of everyone present made the day more special. Big shout out to Jed for the amazing job he did for the day for one of his best mates.

Jason and Yih's wedding. All smiles and laughter.

22nd of July

All smiles and laughter

Its always a gamble having your wedding in winter. It could rain. You could get blown away. Storms may loom on the horizon. But if your wedding deadline falls in this time it’s a risk you have to take. And it paid off for Jason and Yih.

The sun shone as large and as brightly as their personalities. I can’t imagine these guys angry or stressed in each other’s company. Though they may have their moments, when we were taking their portraits their laughter, jokes and excitement echoed off the walls of Wolf Lane. I have not seen a couple laugh as much as these too.

It was amazing to be around and infectious. I loved every minute of it.

It felt like hanging out with old friends even though we had literally just met.

The reception was held at the beautifully crafted Nine Fine food, their favourite Perth restaurant. The food looked and smelt delicious and went down an absolute treat from all reports. The humour and fun continued with the cake. “I love You…. I KNOW!”, placed on the top tier of the cake like a Hollywood billboard. On the remaining tiers iced versions of Princess Leia and Han Solo look deep into each other’s eyes whilst Darth Vader stalks them in the foreground.

The night had just begun. The warmth in the restaurant, on a typically cold winters night was forgotten as smiles, hugs, laughter and tears filled the room. It was such a great celebration.

Welcome!

Bienvenue! Welcome.  I am a portrait and wedding photographer located in sunny Perth, Western Australia. I want to create artistic imagery. Original, unique, playful and engaging. I like simplicity in photography and work towards photographing like the greats. I’m inspired by the candid photography of  Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier-Bresson. I am stunned by the landscapes of Ansel Adams. I am in awe of the patience and dedication of Sebastião Salgado’s powerful, raw and emotive work. And I am captivated by the beautiful portrait work of Annie Leibovitz.

Life is full of surprises and adventures.  I look forward to hearing yours and expressing them in photographs.

Travel has provided me with amazing opportunities, stories and encounters and I would be ecstatic to travel to photograph your wedding, family, friends or pets in regional Australia or abroad and can offer customised packages for you.

Follow my journey and adventures here at  my blog.

I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Owen
