It was really lovely to catch up with Kate and Ben on a sunny afternoon recently as we wandered around the Williamstown Botanical Gardens with their two dogs we chatted about their upcoming wedding at Weribee Mansion and Shadoxfax Winery. Kate and Ben are a super lovely couple and I’m really looking forward to photographing what promises to be a super fun wedding day!

Catherine + David Rustic Country Wedding at Emu Bottom Homestead

October 29, 2014 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

On a truly glorious Spring day in October Catherine and David were married at Emu Bottom Homestead. The Woolshed and rustic bush property really suited Catherine and David’s relaxed style and they styled it perfectly as to embrace the relaxed rustic, country wedding they desired. Catherine had carefully  incorporated the Australian bushland & flowers with a soft pink & mint colour pallette embracing the relaxed, light and fun attitude of the day.

Catherine and David are a lovely couple who’s laid back attitude and go with the flow attitude made the day an absolutely pleasure to be a part of. Catherine and David had these lovely words to say about working with us too.

“Lizzy made the bridal party feel so comfortable & relaxed on the day. They were happy to assist us in anyway we needed & knew the exact locations at the venue to take the most perfect shots. They worked wonderfully with our 3 year old son to take some timeless shots which we will cherish forever.”

Spring has certainly arrived in Melbourne, well on the weekends of late at least. It was so lovely to catch up with Hayley and Nathan and wander around Southbank. Hayley and Nathan are fond of Southbank as they previously lived in the area and would often spend time there. Hayley and Nathan have lived in Australia for almost ten years.  They originally hail from the UK but are very excited about their upcoming Australian wedding.

Client Spotlight: Chris Chan’s relaxed corporate portraits

CChan0814 0027 Client Spotlight: Chris Chans relaxed corporate portraits

It’s always lovely to be referred by past clients. I figure this means that they think we did an awesome job! That’s how I came to photograph Chris Chan. Chris tells me that he had really good feedback from colleague and friend Bernd Schiffer. He also thought that our style really made our clients look warm and friendly, which was the impression he wanted to project of himself.

Chris is an Enterprise Lean & Agile Coach, consultant and trainer who focuses on facilitating organisational change and the transformation to a more agile workplace.

Chris is very passionate about what he does. His naturally curious personality means he is constantly learning and striving to get better at things. He lives by the moto “you can never stop learning” and is spurred on by the excitement of learning something new no matter how small it may be. While striving to find better ways of doing things himself, he discovered an appetite for helping others get better at working. He loves mentoring and coaching people in agile ways of working, and gets a lot of satisfaction from seeing people succeed. He tells me that his fresh, outside perspective and pragmatic attitude are things clients really value.

Client Spotlight: Professional Portraits for Jill Blunsom

September 9, 2014 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Commercial Photography .

Melbourne business portraits Client Spotlight: Professional Portraits for Jill Blunsom I love working directly with business people. It is very rewarding to work closely with someone to make sure we produce images that represent them, their business and their brand, which they can then use across their marketing and online profiles. On top of that, I love hearing about what people do and all the creative business ideas that are out there.

It’s no secret that I am a massive fan of travel, so I was thrilled to recently work with Jill Blunsom of Gourmet South America and learn more about what she does. Jill creates personalised private travel arrangements to South America, organising everything from flights, hotels and touring, to winery stays and fine dining experiences to complement the journey. With a 12 year career in the South Amercian travel industry she really knows her stuff. She is passionate about all things South America and tells me that there are so many places that people don’t know about, so she’s made it her mission to design itineraries based on her own experience travelling in the region, which are tailored to each individual. Some of her travel highlights have taken her well away from the tourist crowds; to Estancias with its jaw dropping views, to world class wine lodges, jungle retreats, and fine dining experiences to rival the world’s best.

Jill was looking online for a professional photographer who could create a more relaxed professional profile and our folio appealed. Jill had some really lovely things to say about her experience working with us: “I found Lizzy very professional and able to create an environment in which I could relax, enjoy the shoot and even have a bit of a laugh. The end result was some great shots which I am now using on all of my professional pages, i have had many compliments on them. Thank you Lizzy!”

Aww, thanks Jill!

Wedding Albums

July 2, 2014 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

When I first went into photographing weddings many years ago I had no idea that I’d enjoy planning and making wedding albums with clients as much as I do. Apart from the actual wedding day, it’s my next favorite part of what I do. It’s an opportunity to relive the day, to highlight the connections, the memories and the moments and bring it all together and make something tangible after everything else has been packed away. I love the process we go through with each couple, reliving their favorite moments, photographs and highlights and retelling that story. There is nothing more gratifying then handing over a beautiful printed custom made album for my couples to treasure and share with generations to come. There is nothing more important to a photographer then seeing your images printed, enjoyed and preserved.

Images are of Verica and Andrea’s Album and Parent Album.

A little bit of rain doesn’t need to dampen your wedding day. Umbrellas can make for some fun photos! You can also shelter under verandas, rotundas or even have some photos inside. Stormy skies can also make for some amazing dramatic photos. So never fear, there is always a silver lining!

Now this is a mighty fine way to make sure you always remember your wedding date!

photographer melbourne 0135 Wednesday Wedding Inspo: Wedding date

I realised that with the busy year it was last year I never got a chance to post photos from my travels. Considering I visited Mexico, Spain, Morocco, New Zealand and Japan last year I thought it was a bit amiss of me! I thought I should get back to posting these photos and I’m aiming to put up a couple once a week!

To begin with is a few photos taken around Cordoba, Spain. Cordoba is a fascinating medieval town with a strong Islamic influence.
