Caves to Canals. Yallingup Wedding

Caves to Canals. A Yallingup wedding.

 

Rienhardt and Marileen’s story is beautiful as it is epic. They grew up in the same town in South Africa but it was Perth where they found each other and in an intimate ceremony at Caves House in Yallingup, on a gusty winters day, Reinhardt and Marileen tied the knot under the shelter of a beautifully large Ficus at the Emily Rose Terrace. Although the rain threatened to dampen the mood of the ceremony it stayed away as pockets of sunshine shone through the leaves of the surrounding trees onto the bride and groom.

I was struck by the warmth, humour and love in both of their vows which they wrote to each other. It was a moving moment and something that I enjoy experiencing with weddings.

Being a tourist spot there were plenty of people there discovering the wonder and awe that we already knew of at Canal Rocks. One such couple on vacation thought both Reinhardt and Marileen were models and wanted me to ensure they would be paid well, given the windy conditions. I smiled and ensured them they would.

Canal rocks is not just a beautiful spot for exploring rocks and the coastline. It is, as it turns out, an absolute cracker of a spot to fish. In our first meeting I was shocked at how enthusiastic Reinhardt and Marileen (in particular) were with fishing. They love it! I do to. So when I suggested we bring a rod down for the portrait shots they were all for it. I didn’t realise they would actually do it and not only use it as a prop, but Reinhardt caught a decent sized Skippy with it. I was speechless.

Their secret fishing location involved crossing a smaller canal that managed to nearly knock us in the water. But what we captured while we were there was stunning! These two are as beautiful and genuine on the inside as they are out and it was an absolute pleasure to spend the afternoon, climbing rocks, splashing in the ocean and fishing with you.

FRENCH WEDDING

Splender in Olby. July 30th 2016

Driving through the Auvergne region in the centre of France is breath-taking. With sweeping roads that take you through some of France’s most picturesque countryside its hard not to fall in love with the place as Antoine and Solene have. The marquee was transformed into an Island paradise with custom paintings hung on the wall, an amazing bespoke Rum bar, bamboo centre pieces displaying photographs of the incredible adventures they have had together.

The day was not all smooth sailing though! Moments of heavy rain threatened to dampen the festivities. However the Glastonbury Festival – like entrance created by this enhanced the fun and excitement left in store for the night.

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
