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?

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.

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.

Our Next Business Portrait Shoot Day is

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 Portrait Photography.

Introducing our recent client, Leanne Gow.

LGow0315 0038 e1429426170458 Relaxed Corporate Portrait Session with Leanne

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!

One Fine Print
327 Smith St, Fitzroy
10-6pm 
Until 26th of April

I’ve been working super hard on a new project which I haven’t really had the chance to tell you about.

I  work professionally as a photographer for my two businesses, Lizzy C Photography and Commercial Focus. They keep me very busy! I also enjoy working on personal and creative photography, both when I travel and also in my spare time.

It is my personal photographic work, and that of my talented photography colleagues, which inspired me to launch my new venture, One Fine Print.One Fine Print aims to bring people beautiful and unique photography that they might otherwise not get to experience. There will be no need to trawl through looking for treasure; we’ve created something that until now has been difficult to find: a curated forum of unique, bold, intriguing large photographic prints that people can take home and enjoy.

One Fine Print launched spectacularly two weeks ago as a Pop Up Showcase at 327 Smith St Fitzroy. We’ve had so much great feedback and sheer delight from customers who’ve discovered us.  I love when people say to us “I’ve been looking for some art and I’d never previously considered photography.”  Everyone is loving that we only showcase interesting, bold and different images and that we make it easy. They are big, framed and delivered!

We are in the pop up store until the 26th of April and we’d love for you to visit.

Pop in (see what I did there) any time. We are open 10-6pm daily.  I (Lizzy) is in the store most days. If you can’t make it in to the store, check us out online and be sure to subscribe to our mailing list so you know what’s happening next!

Teneil and Ash’s Emu Bottom Homestead Wedding

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

Teneil and Ash don’t do things in halves. They’ve managed to build a house, relocate from country Victoria and start new jobs. All while organising a wedding! A beautiful, heart felt and fun wedding at that!

I was pretty impressed at how dapper the boys scrubbed up in their suits and bow ties. The girls of course looked stunning. Teneil, just radiant in her Marina Hardwick gown. Their vintage classic look a stunning contrast to the rustic Australian feel of Emu Bottom homestead.

It was such a lovely day and I am so flattered that Teneil and Ash shared these lovely words about us.

“Lizzy was amazing, she had the added pressure of a few rainy showers but she still managed to get all the shots we were after. Hey bubbly personality made her really easy to get along with.”

Beth and Paul’s St Dominics Church and Homestead Wedding

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

I have to be honest, the first time I met Beth and Paul I was wearing my pyjamas. Or at least my pyjama bottoms. We first met via Skype, where they chatted to me from the comfort of their living room in the UK and me from home in Melbourne. Due to the time difference, the hour was early so I skyped in from home in my pi’s before going into the studio! I didn’t actually meet Beth and Paul until a few days before their wedding day when they landed in Melbourne for their big celebration. It didn’t matter as instantly I noticed what a lovely and warm couple they were. Paul with his attention to detail and very thoughtful personality and Beth with her relaxed and go with the flow attitude made us feel very welcome and included in all the plans and the activities of their big day.

What should I wear?

ABrookhouse1113 0044 What should I wear?

Professional Profile Photos

When a client books in for a Lizzy C Photography business portrait shoot, by far the most commonly asked question is “What should I wear?.”

There really is no right or wrong outfit for a portrait shoot. It doesn’t matter if your favorite shirt has stripes, or spots or is lime green. The best outfit you can bring is the one that makes you feel relaxed but professional. We usually recommend our clients bring a shirt or top in a color they like to wear and bring a jacket (for a few more corporate shots.)

We recommend bringing a second shirt or top to change into if you would like a greater variety of looks to choose from. Black is great and popular amongst us Melbourne peeps but bring some colour as well.

Jewellery and scarves are great ways for women to change it up. For Men bringing a suit, bring a couple of shirt and tie options and even a t-shirt for a casual shot for your personal Facebook profile picture for example.

The type of portrait we shoot may depend on the type of industry you work in and the clients that will view your profile. Some industries, by nature of their work, require a more relaxed approachable portrait style, whereas others may require a more formal corporate look.

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.

TRomanelli 0001 Client Spotlight: Profile Portraits: Tony Romanelli

When I pack up the studio, after one of our special profile portrait days, I am always exhausted. It’s a big day, lots of photography but also a big part of these sessions is meeting people and learning about their personalities and what they do. This is especially important because not only do we photograph a true representation of each client’s personality but it means they let their guard down and enjoy the session. This results in relaxed personable portraits. I couldn’t love it more, as I get to meet people from all walks of life and we basically end up having heaps of laughs, chats and to be honest a lot of fun!

Tony was absolutely no exception. Tony is just one of those lovely personable and genuine guys. He came to us through a recommendation, through a lovely past client of mine, Marion. So I knew he was going to be great fun to work with, as well all I can say is good people know good people.

This is a little about Tony (a truly fascinating gentleman) and his experience of the shoot.

Tell me a bit about what you do.
A highly experienced and passionate advocate for marginalised youth, educator, trainer and facilitator, I specialise in the development of policy based on the principles of inclusion and social justice, reflective of the needs of our vulnerable youth.

Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?
Lizzy was highly recommended by a friend and colleague.

Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results of your shoot?
Lizzy made me feel very relaxed which made the shoot loads of fun. It was so easy to connect with Lizzy, and it didn’t take long before we were solving
the worlds problems, having a good laugh, which resulted in heaps of fantastic shots. It was so difficult to choose the shots, because they were all great.

StKilda wedding 0087 Social Media Profile Portraits: Client Spotlight: Paul Conti

Recently we had the opportunity to photograph Paul’s profile photos. Actually we’d photographed Paul once before, as a groomsman at his sister’s wedding! Paul more than anyone knows the importance of having a strong online profile, infact his job is all about being online!

We asked Paul about what he does and his experience of a Lizzy C Photography session:

What do you do?
Social Media Manager, Country Road

Tell me a bit about what you do.
Country Road’s social media channels are my domain.
I work with the business to set our social content and comms strategy, grow traffic and revenue from social channels, meet social customer service standards, drive customer acquisition, promote brand advocacy, analyse social data and conduct market research.

Tell me about how you got into your field.
It was an accident, really.

I was working for Country Road in a hybrid retail operations, social customer service and internal communications role, whilst completing an undergraduate degree with a view to postgrad law. Back then there was no social media role in the business, save my work with our Customer Service team, but the potential was there.

After a little discussion I was offered a 6 month trial to develop and execute a social media strategy for Country Road; needless to say it worked (thankfully!) and my role became permanent.

Why did you choose to hire Lizzy C Photography?
It was a gift (but a good one!).

After telling my sister about the time a social media marketing news outlet had published an interview with me using my not-so-professional Facebook profile picture, she decided it was time to upgrade my photographic options. She’d previously worked with Lizzy on her wedding photos, and couldn’t have been happier with them, so naturally she went to Lizzy for this too.

Tell us about your experience working with her. Were you happy with the results of your shoot?
I won’t lie; I was dreading the shoot for the entire month leading up to it. I’m often on photo shoots for work, and I’m not scared of an Instagram pic or two, but being in front of a professional camera had me terrified.

Luckily Lizzy is great at what she does. She was friendly, funny, understood that I was well out of my comfort zone and (somehow) managed to put me at easy enough to get some really great shots.

I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Matt and Lisa’s Stillwater at Crittenden Wedding

February 9, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

The opportunity to wander my way out of town on a Saturday to photograph a wedding is always a pleasure. Especially so when you know it’s going to be a great day photographing a lovely couple.

Matt and Lisa got married at Stillwater at Crittden, a stunning vineyard in Dromana. The couple were able to get ready right there on the property in adorable little lake houses and then wander over to be married under a big tree by the lake.  It was all very relaxed.

All day the weather kept us on our toes. Just small sprinkles that were never serious enough to interfere. Not that Lisa and Matt let the weather dampen their spirits. To be honest, I don’t know if they even noticed. I think they were too busy having a good time!

Thank you so much Lisa and Matt for including us in your special day and for your lovely words.

Send a big thank you to Lizzy! we really were impressed with her on the day and can not wait to see our images. We know they will be amazing!

Emma and Tim’s St Kilda Pier Wedding

January 16, 2015 | Learn more about Lizzy C's Wedding Photography .

Emma and Tim’s wedding day seemed to fall seamlessly into place. It was exactly what the couple wanted: a relaxed and fun day spent with their nearest and dearest. The setting really couldn’t have been more perfect. Picture this: a quaint weatherboarded kiosk perched at the end of St Kilda Pier. Guests are sipping on G&Ts and mingling while the sun sets out over the water. Many of the guests are sporting colourful and fun sunnies supplied by the couple. Live music is provided by the Baker Boys band. Laughter and chatter can be heard right down the pier as the guests settle into the night.

For us, it was a fun and easy day. Emma and Tim, self-professed “non-creative” types, were keen to follow our guidance and were happy to go with the flow. They were both keen to have some photos beforehand so as not to miss much of the party, and for the day to flow seamlessly for their guests from ceremony to reception. Due to their desire to keep things casual, there were very few formalities during the reception, so we were asked just to let them know when it would be a good time to duck out for some sunset shots. Such a dream brief for us. Oh, and didn’t we have some fun walking along the pier and playing with the perfect light! It was a great opportunity for us all to really take in the stunning sunset and spectacular city views.

Thank you so much Emma and Tim, for involving us in such a memorable day. I am sure it worked so well because you truly understood what was important to you and put your trust in people that could help achieve your vision. We appreciated the kind and heartfelt “thank you” during your speech; we were humbled to have been included.
