Towards the end of last year I got to photograph the most "in-love" couple I have ever met. The week before the wedding I met Claire and John for a run through at their gorgeous venue and already then had such a sense of immense love. To say this was only the tip of the iceberg would be an understatement. One of the reasons I so love photographing weddings is being able to see people at their most courageous and most vulnerable. Weddings bring out the best and the worst and the most beautiful in people... While you can try hide your emotions it's easier, on a day like this day, to just bear all. This post is a long one, I loved every moment of the Crabb wedding and while I may be a little "out of it" - I just couldn't choose my favourites! Special thank you to my most amazing second shooter at the Crabb wedding: Dane Turvey.
Model: Dayna Crichton
Venue: Haycroft Farm
Stylist: Cayleigh Beyers
Hair: Kristi Wood of Hairby Kristi
Eyelashes: Tarryn Wood of i-beauti lashes
Makeup: Clair Strang of Ammara
Dayna won a competition that myself and several suppliers ran early last year. Due to personal circumstances the original make-up artist had to pull out of participating with us. Lucky for us, Clair Strang, owner of Ammara, was available and totally willing to jump right in and get involved. We got together one fine day in August and photographed this most beautiful girl looking her absolute best thanks to some really amazing industry professionals. I am so thankful to these incredible women and their understanding in waiting for these images. While they have been edited for a while, with everything we have been going through as a family we just have not had the time to just sit and compose the social media and blog posts that they so deserve. SO... I hope to make it up to them!

Super special thank you to my girls: to Tarryn for Dayna's gorgeous lashes. Tarryn is incredible at her craft and you will leave her rooms feeling like a million bucks. To Kristi for pulling off several gorgeous hair styles on the day. You're such a talented hair stylist and your involvement in the shoot was immeasurable with your valuable input and styling! Clair, my little saviour who filled in at the last moment! Thank you for doing the most beautiful make-up for Dayna. You are incredibly talented! And Cayleigh - my special friend who has the wonderful gift of styling models and making them feel completely at ease and comfortable! You are all so wonderful! I cannot thank you enough.
