I met Gabe and Renée at the wedding of Adam and Bridget, a Berrima wedding I photographed a while ago. Gabe was a keen photographer with camera in hand and very interested in what I was holding, very friendly, a little animated I would say, we had a good chat. I showed him a few tips with his camera. Some time later I received a call from Gabe, only a few months out from their wedding, saying that since I showed him those few things his photos had been amazing! He mentioned they were getting married soon and had been going through a lot of my work, loved my creativity and would love me to photograph their wedding! Luckily the date was free, so they cancelled their other photographer,*eek* and here we are…
What an insanely awesome day!
Such a beautiful, genuine and fun-loving couple.
Perfect Sydney weather, great venues and a fab bunch of people, especially Gabe and Renee….you sure know how to have a good time!
Tessa from Breathing Light Photography, my partner in crime on the day, took a few of these photos too, thanks Tess you rock!
…and The Bar at the End of the Wharf – what more can I say, its got it all. It would have to be my favourite reception venue in Sydney…so SOOO cool!
I’m sure the images portray all this though, so without further adieu, here is a song that Renee chose for their love story, and my story of their wedding day.
