Kylie and Ryan’s Homestead Wedding

December 18, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

After ten years together, Kylie and Ryan finally got married – and what a stylish wedding it was!
Ryan and his groomsmen looked dapper in blue suits, bow ties, suspenders, and matching polka dot socks. The girls weren’t to be outdone, and Kylie looked stunning in a lace gown and veil, and her bridesmaids shone in pastel pink wrap dresses.
These guys were really relaxed before the wedding. We had a lot of fun with the boys and Harley (Kylie and Ryan’s dog), as well as making a mess on Kylie’s parents’ front lawn with confetti.
During their beautiful ceremony, Ryan said some of his favourite things about Kylie are her infectious laugh and smile ‑ and you can see why from the photos! After the ceremony, guests entertained themselves with giant jenga, skittles, and quoits on the lawns, while the bridal party had photos around the property.
We stayed long enough to photograph the bridal party making their grand entrance to the reception, and Kylie and Ryan cutting their amazing cake. After that we left the happy couple to enjoy some canapés, drinks, and dancing at Emu Bottom Homestead.

Kylie and Kyel Werribee Mansion Wedding at the Pavilion

December 15, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Kylie and Kyel are love birds from way back; they started dating after high school but Kylie admits she had a crush on Kyel long before that. Kyel being Kylie’s brother’s best mate means they’ve known each other since primary school!

It was important to Kylie and Kyel that they have a relaxed and fun wedding; and Werribee Mansion was perfect for their vintage inspired wedding with fun modern flair! Kylie and Kyel loved the practicality of having their wedding at Werribee Mansion. They felt it important to be relaxed and fully soaked up the experience of their venue and did this by enjoying a night at Werribee Mansion hotel the night before the big day. To really ensure they felt relaxed they had massages and an intimate dinner in the hotel restaurant before the festivities began. The idea of no cars or moving around on their big day was very appealing and put them right at ease.

Their were plenty of unique touches that Kylie and Kyel added to their wedding day. A favourite moment for them both was their first dance. Which started with a a beautiful slow version of “I wanna dance with somebody” But then they had the original Whitney Houston version played immediately after. That’s when they asked everyone to join in and everyone was dancing and singing and really getting into it. It was fun and silly and just exactly what the couple wanted in that moment.

We loved that during the ceremony the couple asked the celebrant prior to reading the legal statement “marriage in Australia is between a man and a woman..” that their guests cover their ears in protest. As one day the couple hope that marriage equality will be granted in Australia and everyone will be allowed to marry who they love.

Kylie and Kyel had these lovely words about working with us…

Lizzy instantly makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. She has the talent of capturing really candid beautiful moments and bringing out the best in people. Our whole bridal party absolutely loved her. Lizzy was amazing. We are so so happy we chose her. She is easy to work with, is totally flexible with getting all the photos you want. But also has a great eye for finding the right spots for great photos.

Louise + Mani’s Emu Bottom Homestead Wedding

December 3, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Louise and Mani first met through work and became friends.  They were both after a simple, relaxed and
rustic wedding and Emu Bottom Homestead fit the bill! It was actually the only place they even considered! They immediately knew it felt right as Mani particularly wanted a garden
wedding and the woolshed had a great atmosphere about it. So in true Louise and Mani style (without a fuss) they just jumped right in and booked it without visiting any other venues!

Louise and Mani commented that they loved everything about their wedding day! However,  it wasn’t until the drive back to the hotel after it was all over that they were able to stop and reflect, catch up and swap stories about all that happened throughout the day!

Lovely words from Louise and Mani about their experience working with us!
Lizzy and her team have been so easy to work with. They are so friendly, and professional but fun! Lizzy has been so patient and was able to make us feel relaxed and helped us to enjoy the
whole process.

What do you do and how you got into your field.

I’m a behaviour change and prevention strategist. I started off in a marketing communications consultancy and had the amazing privilege of working on a public health project for Australians with diabetes. The subject matter of health promotion really struck a cord with me, so I pursued a Master of Public Health.

Tell me a bit about what you do.

My work is focused around developing and delivering programs that encourage people to change the way they behave in order to positively impact themselves or our society. I’ve worked with government and consultancies, as well as not-for-profits, and across issues such as obesity, parenting and corruption. Its great to be able to combine my two loves – marketing and public health – in the projects that I work on..

Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?

I’ve known Lizzy from when I was working above her studio many years back. I wanted to get corporate profile pics done with someone who I trust and am comfortable with, so Lizzy was the obvious choice!

Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results?

It was a really fun photo session. Lizzy made me feel really comfortable and we tried out different poses and outfits. She ensured the shots were natural and brought out my personality, rather than trying to dictate what I should or shouldn’t do.

Profile Portraits Melbourne

What do you do?
My job title is Manager, Office of the Deputy Secretary Service Design and Operations Division, in the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. I manage a small team of six staff who provide policy and strategy advice, and adminstrative support to the Deputy Secretary.

How did you get into your field?
I joined the Victorian public service in 2007 through its graduate recruitment scheme. Most of this time, I’ve worked in the public/social housing area. Prior to this I held a few different roles in policy research, academic tutoring, and in the book industry. My undergraduate degrees were in international studies (with a Spanish major) and an honours degree in social science.

Why Lizzy C Photography?
I found Lizzy through a google search. I really like the natural look of the photos on the website – the people seemed normal!

Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results of your shoot?
I wanted professional photos for my Linkedin profile, but I hate having my photo taken! Lizzy did a great job of making me feel comfortable during the shoot, and in helping me determine which photos to choose. I would really recommend her.

Relax! It’s only a photo.

June 15, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Portrait Photography.

Not everyone is born naturally photogenic. Let’s face it. Most of us are never happy when we see ourselves in photographs. Most of us freeze up at the thought of getting our photo taken which makes trying to put your best foot forward in the very visual world of social media and websites difficult.

Anyone looking at your online professional image is judging you by the quality of the image in front of them. Appearances count when you are trying to make a good impression.

When we take your photograph, we believe a great shot is all about having you relax in front of the camera. We want you to loosen up and behave naturally. Sometimes this takes a bit of time. Even for a single head shot we recommend at least 45 minutes of shoot time.

If you are very uncomfortable at the thought of having your portrait taken then we can use this amount of time to get to know you, make you feel comfortable and make sure we get your best angle.
Likewise, if a shoot is too long the subject get’s tired. (Anyone who has been photographed on their wedding day can probably relate to this!)

The smiles become too forced and stiffness in posture sets in and the photo will not appear natural.

A recent client commented about the process.

My whole life I have been convinced that, contrary to the old adage, the Camera does indeed lie! I do not take a good photo!

I think the reason Lizzy’s portraits work is that she makes me relax and so, instead of a forced, almost self conscious look, she manages to bring out a more natural expression which in turn improves the outcome.

In my view she weaves magic and I am delighted with the outcomes. – Leanne Gow

Here at Lizzy C Photography, we like to think we are experts at capturing just the right look to showcase our clients and the work they do.
If you think your business image could do with a lift, then contact us now book in for a Business Profile on our next Business Portrait Shoot Day.

And….. If you find it hard to get to the studio during business hours, our appointments times start as early as 7.30am.

Katrina + Aaron | Rustic Bush Emu Bottom Homestead Wedding

May 13, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

When Katrina and Aaron first met in Melbourne they bonded over the fact that he was a Kiwi and Katrina had recently returned to Melbourne after 3 years living in NZ. As they spend a lot of their time together pursuing outdoor pursuits Emu Bottom Homestead was the perfect venue with it’s beautiful outdoor setting and rustic bush charm. They idea of a spit lamb roast over the Woolshed fire was also very appealing!  Aaron and Katrina has a wonderful day but were aware how quickly it was flying by, when Aaron’s favourite song started to play at the reception Katrina saw it as the perfect oportunity to steal Aaron away and we spent a special moment together dancing with each other on the dance floor.

Aaron and Katrina’s advice to soon to be wed couples

What advice would you give to someone getting married?
Wedding planning is a lot of work but hopefully you only do it once so don’t be afraid to try new ideas and add special unique elements to personalise the wedding to really make it your own. Plan ahead, book in your suppliers early and delegate jobs where you can. The wedding day will fly by, but try to take a moment to stand back and soak every detail in and spend a quiet moment with just you and your new husband.

How was your experience with Lizzy C Photography?
Lizzy was so easy to work with and had us all relaxed in front of the camera. She worked efficiently and seamlessly to make the most of the time we had to capture all the special moments.

Were there any publications, websites or blogs that you used to research ideas for your own wedding?
Polkadot bride

We’d also like to know if there are any suppliers you used to put together your big day, that you might wish to mention. If you used anyone whose product or service was exceptional, please let us know.
– We loved the beautiful sounds of our amazing band Inka Sounds whose music had the Woolshed buzzing and everyone up on the dance floor. They were fantastic to work with and responded to all our special requests.
– Our celebrant Melissa Fahey was also wonderful and had all the guests relaxed, laughing and ready for my arrival and provided the perfect relaxed but personal feel that we were after for our ceremony.
– Our florist Basia Puchalski who understood my vision and created beautiful native bouquets and floral arrangements for the ceremony and reception that blended so well with the venue and surrounds.
– My dress from Gwendolynne was absolutely beautiful. I fell in love with Gwendolynne’s elegant, vintage style from the moment we first visited her boutique in Fitzroy. The service provided by Gwendolynne and her staff was exceptional and very personal from the very beginning when I tried on the different styles.

Jess and Mick’s Emu Bottom Country Rustic Wedding

May 12, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Jess and Mick love camping so Emu Bottom Homestead in its beautiful natural setting was as obvious choice for them as the perfect place for their wedding. They were extremely thankful to their family friend Brodie who styled their entire wedding and made their dream day come to life. Making it fit truly with their own personalities.

We’re blushing but I guess we’ve got to brag a bit and share the lovely words Jess and Mick had to say about their experience with us

“Lizzy was fantastic and we highly recommend her services! She made the whole process so easy and all the guests and bridal party just loved her too. She is very organised and knows the venue well, the bridal party shots went seamlessly. And most importantly, Lizzy’s photography is second to none!”

To Hair and Make Up or, Not to Hair & Make Up?

May 8, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Portrait Photography.

Profile Profile Portrait Sessions

A really common question from female portrait clients before a shoot is, should I have my hair and make up professionally done? Ultimately it is a very personal choice. Our advice is always to keep it simple and natural. If you don’t normally have your hair “tszuj-ed” up to the rafters and wear heavy make up – then don’t! At the end of the day you want to look like you.

For those clients that do decide to go ahead with hair and make up we always recommend the artist keep it light and as natural as possible and the day of your shoot is not the best time to try out a new hair style. We don’t want you feeling self conscious and worrying about what your hair is doing. We want you to feel relaxed and comfortable during your shoot and feeling like the very best version of YOU.

You want your Business Portrait to be a professional, approachable, recognisable, version of you.

Here at Lizzy C Photography, we like to  think we are experts at capturing just the right look to showcase our clients and the work they do.

If you think your business image could do with a lift, then contact us now  book in for a Business Profile on our next Business Portrait Shoot Day.  And….. If you find it hard to get to the studio during business hours, our appointments times start as early as 7.30am.

Hayley and Nathan’s Melbourne Homestead Wedding

May 8, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Oh what a fun day we had at Hayley and Nathan’s intimate Australian soiree! Hayley and Nathan were married both in England and Australia. A nice opportunity for them to include both the super special English and Australian people they have in their lives. We really enjoyed spending time with Hayley, Nathan and their bridal party wandering around Emu Bottom homestead prior to their ceremony. It made for a very relaxed and fun photo session. So relaxed that the boys came in late and not quite even dressed! Apparently, Nathan is notoriously always late so Hayley wasn’t particularly surprised!

Sam and Luke’s Emu Bottom Homestead Wedding

April 25, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

I love it when you meet a couple who just make each other laugh. Sam and Luke are like this, Luke always has Sam in fits of laughter and they just have so much fun.  Sam and Luke had a all sibling bridal party, which I think is pretty cool. There was an obvious focus on fun and laughter which carried on through out the day. Sam loves soccer so to calm the nerves she donned her soccer boots pre-ceremony and the girls even joined in for a bit of soccer fun for some photos, the guests surprised the couple with an impromptu all encompassing sing along during the reception and there was even some triva fun.The prize being the highly sought after first dibs on cupcake flavours!

Thanks so much for having me along on what was such a fun, relaxed and laugh filled day, Sam and Luke. We are flattered that you feel that we were just like friends capturing your day and that you could just relax and have a good time. We had a great time too!

Relaxed Corporate Portrait Session with Leanne

April 24, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Commercial Photography .

Introducing our recent client, Leanne Gow.

LGow0315_0038

What do you do?

I am presently in Finance looking after the Asia Pacific region for an LSE listed Company in the Education Services Sector. I am about to embark on an exciting work life change which is the reason I am getting my portraits updated.

Tell me about how you got into your field.

The University of Melbourne B Com ticket took me into PwC. With that great start I moved from the Profession into the Corporate Finance area where I have taken up CFO or equivalent roles in diverse industries including Technology distribution, Transport and Logistics, Retail, Book Publishing and Education Services

Tell me a bit about what you do.

The last few years have been the best so far because they took me away from the routine associated with the Finance function. I have spent a lot of time travelling, sometimes to our offices in London and New York but mostly to businesses in the Asia Pacific area, mainly in China and India. I have been working on acquisitions, both pre and post acquisition. When a business is acquired I have been integrating the Finance functions in those new businesses. Lately, there has been major divestment from the Group and separating what was previously a fully integrated business unit has been a challenging but interesting process.

Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?

This is the second time I have used Lizzy C for portraits. My first experience was great so I went back when it came time to update the portraits

Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with
the results of your shoot?

My whole life I have been convinced that, contrary to the old adage, the Cameral does indeed lie! I do not take a good photo! I think the reason Liz’s portraits work is that she makes me relax and so, instead of a forced, almost self conscious look, she manages to bring out a more natural expression which in turn improves the outcome. In my view she weaves magic and I am delighted with the outcomes.

Website Profile Portraits – Scott Trevethan

April 19, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Portrait Photography.

Introducing our client: Scott Treventhan

What do you do?

I run Scott Partners Chartered Accountants – Tax and business advisors specialising in making small businesses work better for their owners.

Tell me about how you got into your field.

Well I guess accounting is in the family gene pool so I naturally gravitated to it. Had a lot of interesting small and large business diversions along the way including running my own café, before coming to Scott Partners. By the way, its not named for me, it was founded over 30 years ago by David Scott who only just recently retired.

Tell me a bit about what you do.

We use technology such as cloud accounting, we favour Xero, to keep in touch with our clients and continually advise them along the path.

Specifically we take the burden of tax and lodgements from our client’s busy schedules and give the advice on other aspects of their business such as cash flow, HR management and how to convert their hard earned profits to long term investments.

Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?

I just bought out my partner to become the sole owner of the business and we wanted to relaunch my profile in a new web site and a host of other online marketing areas. Lizzy C seemed like a good fit for some profile pictures.

Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with
the results of your shoot?

Very happy with the results. Even happier after they were touched up a bit. Liz was very easy to work with, made me relax and enjoy the experience. It was very personal and professional. I’m delighted with my pics. Thanks Liz!
