Meet Ian.

May 16, 2016 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Commercial Photography .

ICornfoot_0216_0031

We love working closely with our clients and learning more about what they do.

Recently, we photographed Ian a chartered mechanical engineer and recently appointed Managing Director of G&G Mining Fabrication – an excavator bucket and heavy engineering business in Perth. We asked him to tell us more about what he does and his experience working with Lizzy C.

Tell me about how you got into your field.

I studied Mechanical Engineering at University after becoming interested in Engineering through playing with Lego when I was young and then Mountain Bikes as I got older! I worked in Service Engineering and Engineering Design roles for a few years in the UK, and then had the opportunity to move to Australia with that company in a Field Service Engineering role in 2007. This led me to time living in Mackay, Perth and eventually Melbourne – mostly supporting Mining and Heavy Transport sectors. 3 years ago I looked for a change, and moved to SSAB, a Swedish Steel producer, in an interesting Technical and Business Development role looking after “Wear” applications (generally Mining, Quarrying, Recycling, Construction, and Agriculture), and our manufacturing partners – the “Hardox Wearparts” network across Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. That has eventually led to my new role taking over the management of a business SSAB acquired during this period – and a relocation back to Perth after 5 years in Melbourne.

Tell me a bit about what you do.

I am just stepping into the role, but the business is specialized in large welded structures – and in particular large mining excavator buckets. This is of interest to SSAB who are specialists in the production of wear resistant and high strength steels. As such am tasked with leading the business through a transition to the use of higher grade materials, developing new and innovative Engineered solutions to support a range of industries, as well as navigating the current difficult market conditions in mining and for Australian manufacturing.

Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?

I chose Lizzy C after finding her online. I was looking for some new images as the ones I had were quite dated, and I liked the casual and relaxed look of the shoots that I saw. I wanted some shots that conveyed a relaxed demeanor whilst also looking professional but not stuffy.

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

It was great! I was made to feel very relaxed, and we had plenty of time to try different types of shots and in various different outfits / looks that can then be used in different situations.

How to stand out on LinkedIn

JJones_0216_0026

In a digital world where everyone looks online to learn more. We are finding more and more people are understanding the importance of having an up to date and engaging LinkedIn account. We know the importance of having a great profile portrait to help standout in a saturated market but we thought we’d ask Sam Bell from Runway Digital what else we can do to stand out on LinkedIn.

Sam shares her top three tips for standing out on LinkedIn:

  1. Look engaging! From a warm, engaging photo to your tagline (to the right of your photo) to your summary and beyond, use words that’ll have readers stay and want to read more. Especially the first few sentences. Be bold, be interesting!
  2. Get into your readers’ shoes! What are people looking for when they search for someone with your skills? Update your tagline and Summary so it includes words they’d search for in Linkedin and throughout your profile write to them directly.
  3. Look sharp! There’s small tweaks you can make to your Linkedin so you look progressive and highly polished. From making sure the link to your Linkedin is unique, to including your presentations or marketing brochures for relevant products or services, …use Linkedin to showcase who you are right now.

Rosie and Stephen’s lunchtime Wedding

May 10, 2016 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Rosie and Stephen were married in a beautifully intimate affair at Alexandra Gardens in Kew followed by a lunchtime reception at Rosie’s parents home. It was important to them both that they celebrated their relationship with the people who were closest to them. So the relaxed garden wedding and reception at home suited them perfectly. A particularly special moment for them both was seeing each other walk across the gardens to meet before they walked down the aisle together hand in hand.  They also really appreciated the beautiful reading by the bride’s sisters that was written by the multi-talented mother of the Bride, Elisabeth.

Sejla and Dane Emu Bottom Homestead Wedding

May 4, 2016 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Sejla and Dane first met at a parties that mutual friends hosted, but it took them about a year to start dating! 

Sejila and Dane feel their wedding falls broadly into a “boho” theme but mostly they stuck to a simple mentality of simple and less is more. Sejila and Dane picked Emu Bottom homestead especially because they really wanted something unpolished and old – a place with character that would make their party warm and inviting. Emu Bottom Homestead has the perfect Woolshed that fit the bill.  Sejila and Dane wanted to specially mention Deanne who is the manager on site at Emu Bottom Homestead who they feel made the whole experience! They both had a fantastic day and struggle to pick one favourite moment but they do feel the musicians, food and speeches really made their night! 

Sejla shared some great advice with us that she thinks could be helpful to other brides to be. 

Take your time, and listen to yourself. It is a shared life event, so include people that love you and offer support, and try to balance that with what you imagined or want. Don’t sweat the small stuff – literally no one remembers the place names – if you bob your head sideways because you don’t know what that is….point proven!!!

We also asked Sejla and Dane about their experience working with Lizzy C Photography. This is what they had to say.

Really great – Lizzy is a relaxed, organised professional. I am so glad we had two people with us who were good at wrangling family and friends when everyone is excited. I didn’t even notice Lizzy and her assistant most of the time – which is exactly how I wanted it on the day.

Lauren and Frank’s Roombas at Mt Aitken Wedding

March 30, 2016 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Lauren and Frank were married at Roomba’s at Mt Aitken. The venue particularly appealed to the couple because of it’s rustic charm and they really liked that everything was in one location.

The couple originally met through some mutual friends and quickly discovered a mutual love for their pet dogs.

Lauren and Frank followed the advice that others gave to them and really enjoyed taking a moment together at the reception to sit back and watch all the people they loved most having such a great time celebrating the two of them. It was a very special moment for the couple. For this reason that Lauren suggests you take the time to enjoy every single moment of the day because it’s over before you know it.

We were flatted to hear that Lauren and Frank felt really comfortable with us throughout the day. We also loved that apparently the whole bridal party commented on how much fun we were!

Stephanie + Michele’s Holy Spirit Chapel and Luminare Wedding

March 30, 2016 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Stephanie and Michele were married in the beautiful and timeless Chapel of the Holy Spirit at Newman College. The location had an extra special meaning as Stephanie is a alumna of Melbourne University.

Their ceremony was followed by a reception at Luminare which Stephanie and Michaele decorated beautifully with lots of candles and flowers really enhancing the venue’s elegant décor and city views. The couple particularly loved that their guests were able to relax and enjoy the stunning views and glittering city lights from all areas of the venue.

Stephanie and Michaele couldn’t have asked for anything more for their special day. It was all they could ask for. The weather was perfect and the day was relaxed. Stephanie had trouble recalling one favourite moment from their day as she loved every moment! Her advice to other brides is “Embrace every moment, it truly passes in the blink of an eye”

When asked about their experience working with us, this is what Stephanie and Michele had to say;

“We were privileged to have met Lizzy at the wedding of our close friends, Annette and Daniel. We recalled the ease and professionalism Lizzy brought to the day and the beautiful natural shots she captured. This was what we hoped for our wedding and exactly what we experienced. Lizzy made us feel relaxed and was fabulous to work with. We are so pleased we chose Lizzy to capture one of our most memorable days.”

Client Spotlight: Jewellery Designer, Amanda Dowd

ADowd1015_0023

Amanda of Amanda Dowd Jewellery By Design is a Jeweller and Gold and Silversmith. Amanda specialises in making one of a kind pieces of jewellery including special occasion pieces, engagement rings, wedding anniversary gifts and remodelling or heirlooms that have been inherited.

Amanda’s creative process begins with sitting down with a client and through the consultation process she draws out of her clients what they would like to have made. From there she draws up the designs for the client to choose from and then she hand crafts that special piece for them.

Amanda decided to get professional portraits taken as she wanted to portray her personality online and give her clients an introduction into who she is and what she does. Amanda came to Lizzy as she’d seen some of Lizzy’s work elsewhere and liked the results.

Of working with Lizzy Amanda said;
“I am very Happy with results, Lizzy made me feel very comfortable, and was able to create a variety of photos for me to now use for my new website, and other promotional media.”

Mandy + Pat’s Homestead Wedding

February 19, 2016 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

We had a fantastic time at Mandy and Pat’s relaxed wedding.

The couple first met when Pat saw Mandy running water for the local footy team in Kununurra. Pat went out of his way to introduce himself the next time he saw Mandy at the pub, and the rest, as they say, is history. The two eventually moved to Pat’s hometown of Gisborne, where they now live.

With Mandy’s family still in Kununarra, there were a lot of guests who travelled for the wedding. Mandy says her favourite moment during the wedding was having her father walk her down the aisle, and seeing Pat and all of their friends and family who had travelled so far to be a part of their special day.

Mandy and Pat chose Emu Bottom Homestead for its beautiful bush setting and the option for their guests to enjoy the evening inside, or on the lush grassy lawns. Mandy says it was perfect for a summer wedding.

When planning the wedding, Mandy drew inspiration from Hello May, Pinterest, and Cosmo Bride, and came up with a lovely rustic aesthetic. She also personalised the reception room with laminated drawings of her and Pat done by her grade one primary school students (so cute!).

On the day Mandy and Pat we very relaxed, and we loved photographing them. We were happy to hear from Mandy that the feeling was mutual:
“Lizzy was super relaxed and organised, which was particularly useful when we were taking all of the family shots. Photos were a breeze.”

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 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.

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.
