Dennis & Taliah – Prewedding

It’s been a while since I’ve posted pre-weddings (I will be posting quite a few very shortly) so here’s a recent session from the end of June. From what you normally see in my pre-weddings, the lighting is a little backwards but that’s because Taliah asked me for a sunrise shoot so we were up at the crack of dawn. I’m not really a morning person but love that it was a little different. This session was shot just over a week before their wedding so I have those photos coming soon too!

There’s also a lot happening at the studio over winter with a couple of announcements (big ones) coming up at the end of August. Can’t wait to share it all with you!

Watch this space:)

Ming Hsien & Karen – and a note about booking early

This wedding is a favourite of mine and a perfect example of what happens when you allow us to push our creativity when telling your wedding story!

I met Ming Hsien and Karen back in October 2012. They were guests at Shane and Fiona’s wedding and loved my work but weren’t getting married for another 18 months. I love when clients book early and I do receive many enquiries for weddings over a year in advance.

It’s a win-win situation because for me, it clearly works well as I can start planning for the future and for my couples (well from their perspective) they usually say something like:

“It’s good to get the major things out of the way.

But you know what… they’re going to get more value than they realise.

When a couple looks through my website and likes my work enough to meet with me, it means they’d probably be happy if they got the same level of photography for their wedding.

But here’s the thing… by booking early, they think they’ve booked me to shoot their wedding but in actual fact, they haven’t.

They’ve booked future me… the 18-months-from-now version of me which is a like a leveled-up Jason Tey.

I have no intention of staying stagnant in this craft. I know my primary purpose is to be involved in my couples’ lives and be part of their marriage story but secondary to that is a desire to really push the envelope. To revolutionise what people are used to getting from their wedding photographer in Perth. There are things that I can see and do now in this craft that I had no idea about 18 months ago and that makes this job so much fun.

Here is an example of exactly that.

Dylan & Alisa – Wedding

Dylan and Alisa’s wedding was no doubt a beautiful one…. I managed to produce some of my favourite images of the year at one of my favourite venues. When couples tell me they’re getting married at Chapel Farm, I always tell them to make sure they get ready at the Love Shack (now called Bush Shack) because the lighting is just magic and when you look through these images you’ll see why.

The other great thing is that today this wedding was featured on Polka Dot Bride. Whilst my work (editorial) has been featured on Polka Dot Bride before, I haven’t submitted a real wedding there for a long time. Two years ago I submitted a wedding and unfortunately it wasn’t the “right fit” which I think is a kind way of saying “sorry not good enough” so since then I thought I’ll wait until I have something I think is special…

An “offer that Ms Polka Dot could not refuse” and after shooting Dylan and Alisa’s wedding I knew this was it.

Special mention to Amy from La Paleta Ice Lollies because well… I love her Paletas, her humility and brilliant business idea.

For the full list of vendors, check out the post on Polka Dot Bride.


Here are my favourite images…

Polka Dot Bride - I’m so happy you submitted this wedding, it was such a lovely one and I am so excited we got to feature it!

There are so many reasons a wedding might not be a good fit for us- being not good enough is not always the case!

Hope to see more of your beautiful work on Polka Dot Bride soon!
