I love shooting weddings!

The intimacy of the couple in front of your lens is not forced or artificial - the sparks fly and there is real chemistry going on - and its a blast to be part of that capturing a little moment in time for the beautiful bride and groom.

Shane is a new friend, but his beautiful bride Jemimah has been my friend since I first me her when she was three. Actually I didn't meet her that day because I got to her house just after she had pulled the hot water jug on herself and had gone to hospital with burns. Since then Jemimah and her whole family have been friends and I have had the joy of seeing Jemimah grow up, coached her in sports, basketball volleyball and athletics, had her work for me in our business, babysit our kids and hang out as adults. Jemimah has always been strong willed and even when coaching her in basketball she would make sure she worked as hard as the boys – in fact winning the planking competition we ran against all comers.

So when she met Shane and decided to get married and asked me to photograph them i was overjoyed! Getting to do it on the family farm (Jemimah’s Grandparents and Uncle and Aunt’s place) was also a blast.

And just for a surprise the actual wedding on the beach featured bright green board shorts for the boys.

We did a pre-wedding day shoot just get into the spirit of things capturing some fun moments on the farm while looking for wedding day locations as well. Here are some of my favourite images from the two days of festivities.

 

The practice jumps should have told me how much fun this would be the next day!

Lots of thistles on the farm – lets hope the days ahead are not full of thorns.

And now to the wedding day.

Jemimah and her party and family got ready in one set of apartments.

The boys got dressed in their suits and walked to the beach.

Then the bridal party came in and the ceremony ensued. Her father John both gave her away and conducted the ceremony – what an honour!

Then we had some great beach photos for the bridal party. The location was special as the boardwalk on the cliff top was where Shane had proposed to Jemimah.

The group jumping shot was so funny – Jemimah jumps so enthusiastically – as she approaches everything in life!

What people say about us

Tim has been the official photographer for PRIMA (Pine Rivers Musical Association Incorporated) for the past 4 years. Being a not for profit Musical Theatre Company, we simply do not have surplus funding available to employ a photographer. However, after being referred to Tim by a personal friend of mine, we struck a deal! Tim has supported PRIMA as a sponsor, and provided countless hours at the many photoshoots required with a Musical Production with small and large casts! I have always found him to be extremely approachable and dedicated to his craft. He is only ever a phone call, or message away, especially when I need some help with fitting in a photo! He has provided photography for our ‘Gothic style’ Musical of Little Shop of Horrors, the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar and now the classic musical of Oliver! Tim always brings about professionalism and prides himself in professional photography, particularly down to the editing of all photos, but more specifically, to the specifications I often demand. So I would like to extend a great big Thank you to Tim Miller from Dreamcoat Photography for his services, and look forward to many other photoshoots down the track....including hopefully some new family portraits. Thanks Tim!
