Have you ever wondered what life in the outback town of Broken Hill is like? Tami & Rob were there for a while and they wanted some photos to remember their time in this character filled town as they have now moved to Canberra to start new jobs. Over 5 days we travelled all over town and into the further regions with a stop at the iconic Silverton to watch Rob compete in a mountain bike race and a visit to Menindee Lakes and the historic woolshed. We also found out that the local grocery store thinks that Corn Chips should be located in the Corn only section!! (haha). There are many trendy/hispter cafes – we went to two of them and their food and drinks were amazing! Yes, you heard that right, I was in the Outback! On the first night I watched Tami referee an AFL game. I fell in love with all the rusty old fences, the peeling paint on doors and buildings and the rustic feel of the all the mining structures. When we headed out of town we saw emus everywhere! The sunrises, sunsets and views of the night skies were amazing! But the most fun was getting my shoes dirty with some real red dirt in the creek beds we explored! I loved being a part of Tami and Rob’s life and capturing what they love about Broken Hill. If you live in a place you think I would love to explore and you would like your photos taken then please let me know, Lifestyle Portraiture is my favourite type of shooting! And it can be anywhere in the world!!

The sun decided to make an appearance for Kate and Nigel’s wedding rather than the predicted rain so we were all very relieved as we had some amazing locations for photos and for the ceremony. Kate and Nigel have been living in New Zealand for many years and so it was a wonderful time to reunite with friends and family on this mild autumn day in Newcastle. Nerves turned into adrenalin and the whole day was filled with excitement and words of long-lasting commitment!  One of the most amazing details from the day were the shawls worn by Kate and her bridesmaids. There are hundreds of hours of work and thousands of beads in each shawl!!

It is just terrible to see someone so upset because they had the wrong photographer on their wedding day. Katie tells me that whenever her sister looked at her own wedding photos it would make her sad, it would remind her of the fact that the photographer was not very nice to her and would ignore the style she wanted for her photos. Hannah wanted relaxed, natural photos that captured the bond between her and her husband. You are certainly not supposed to feel angry on your wedding day, you are supposed to be the opposite – floating on a cloud and giddy with excitement! When Katie came to me asking if I could re-shoot some of Hannah and Ben’s wedding photos I was more than happy to help. I got to know Hannah over Facebook, sent her questions over email to get a better idea of the style she had in mind and I asked her to Pin photos she liked to a Pinterest board. By doing this I believe I helped to get Hannah and Ben excited again about wedding photos and try and convince them it can be a fun experience! This is what Hannah had to say…

“From the moment I spoke to Gemma, I knew it would be worlds away from our experience with our photographer on our wedding day. She was so excited to help us create new, fun memories and to capture them for us. She was so genuine in wanting to make sure she got the photos we were after and what I’d seen before that I’d liked. She mentioned Pinterest and I knew it was meant to be! I had been pinning images in the lead up to my wedding and the other photographer had said to me ‘Pinterest is a photographer’s worst nightmare’ and had no interest in attempting any of the shots I thought looked fun and memorable. I purposefully didn’t mention Pinterest to Gemma after hearing that, and turns out I didn’t need to because she was on the same wavelength, asking me if there was photos of hers I’d seen and wanted to recreate. My husband Ben was also really disappointed with the photographer on the day and was happy to get a few photos we’d be happy with Gemma. He can be shy at times, but immediately relaxed and warmed to Gemma, enjoying the afternoon and the whole experience. The time flew by, we had such a fun afternoon of doing all the shots we were after and using props that we’d had on the wedding day and never got a chance to use. We got a sneak peak almost instantly and were so thrilled we sent them to our families straight away. The photos were exactly what we were after, fun, light-hearted and full of happiness. I feel so thankful that Gemma helped us get the photos we were after, our only regret is that we didn’t have her at the wedding!!”
