I knew right off the bat that this Ocean View Estate wedding was going to be an absolute cracker of a day! Steph & I went to the same high school and she is undoubtedly one of the most fun and funny people you’ll ever meet.

I started the day at Steph’s parents house where she was getting ready so we could do some special photos with her beautiful 92 year old granny who wasn’t able to make it to the venue. The ceremony down in the pergola was lovely and followed by the most fun photo session. Lots of laughs with the bridal party and adventures around the property with Steph & Pete. I loved discovering the red dirt road down the back which had a totally different look to the rest of the grounds of Ocean View Estate. A few photos in the vineyard on the way back were followed by a fabulous entry to a super fun reception with many heartfelt speeches. The dance floor was so fantastic! Most of the night it was filled with Steph’s extended family having epic sing alongs and reeeeallly getting into it! Special touches included Steph’s cousin Fern doing all the flowers and Steph’s Mum making the wedding cake.

To finish off the night I asked Steph & Pete if they were up for a night time portrait. Being out in the country with no light around we went out on to the driveway and lit them up from behind creating a beautiful silhouette image.

Steph & Pete – “From the first meet and greet Kirsty was professional, experienced and genuine. She was able to help with all aspects of wedding prep, not just the photography. It was a very overwhelming time and we wish all vendors communicated like Kirsty. Our wedding photos were out of this world. We couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. She made us feel comfortable and most of all gave us a few laughs. Kirsty went above and beyond, can not fault one thing. If you’re reading this review, look no further, you’ve found your photographer!!!!”
