    So there we were 50m up in the air above everything at the @pontdugardofficiel with Jane and Christophe and their cute little Pom! It was amazing getting access to the top of the aqueduct and enjoying the view from there but we were more than anything taken away by this beautiful connecting moment between the couple and their furry friend! Just so much feels everywhere! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We miss Provence so much! The people there were just so friendly everywhere and really made us feel right at home. So much in fact that after we left, Jade said she couldn't wait til the day that we moved there! Really couldn't blame her! The south of France really has such character and charm and it's in no small part because of the people, natural beauty of the surroundings, and fantastic weather. There's just such a comfortable pace of life that really just grows on you fast and you just don't want to leave! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wedding planner: @provenceweddings Wedding Dress: @favre_costa Hair: @egcoiffureevenementielle Makeup: @g.makeup84 . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #passionpassport #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #letswed #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #theweddinglegends #intimatewedding #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #provencewedding #provenceweddingphotographer

    Our wonderful morning spent with our so friendly French couple Jane and Christophe at the absolutely stunning @pontdugardofficiel - many thanks to @provenceweddings for organising this shoot, who this wouldn't have happened without! Highly recommend Marion for any wedding-related things you have in France, she is so talented and incredible at what she does. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And what she did was, to say the least, incredible. We couldn't imagine in our wildest dreams that we would ever get the chance to shoot a prewedding (the first one ever!) at this ancient Roman aqueduct constructed in 40AD! We had seen the pictures online but nothing could really prepare us for this truly awe-inspiring historic site which was truly an architectural marvel, what with the Gardon River flowing underneath and its massive height (it is the highest of all elevated Roman aqueducts ever built). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So we were feeling soooooo completely blessed to have had this opportunity! (Not to mention it was also quite an experience directing the first of our series of shoots in Provence with my broken French hahah - learned it for 5 years in high school but it all came flooding back quickly thankfully!) Grateful to Jane and Christophe for trusting us with their photos and last we heard they were really happy with them! And that probably had to do with us also including their incredibly adorable, super cute, Pomeranian in many of the shots...which we'll be sharing next! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wedding planner: @provenceweddings Wedding Dress: @favre_costa Hair: @egcoiffureevenementielle Makeup: @g.makeup84 . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #passionpassport #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #letswed #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #theweddinglegends #intimatewedding #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #provencewedding #provenceweddingphotographer

    So much feels! Out over at Marina Barrage with @havenlane and @clayton.caulkins. Love the emotion in this one and the look between these two really says it all. Super awesome seeing them vibe and especially loved how much they enjoy being around each other while adventuring around the world! (And also if we can say so this is undoubtedly one of our favorite #dirtybootsandmessyhair type photos we've ever shot! ) Hope we'll get to see them sometime over in the States and take them up on their invite to enjoy some barbecue! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On a side note, it was interesting how they were telling us that they love how Singapore is so modern and futuristic and are so impressed by all that whenever they visit here. The city is so clean and urban with lots of spots like #gardensbythebay, #marinabaysands, #marinabarrage and all that! It's something we like to keep in mind the awesome surrounding sites we do have around us here and appreciate what we have - so many of our friends are always saying how it's better overseas with wide open spaces and endless greenery and landscapes all over - but there are tons of people always visiting Singapore too all the time right ? . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #elopement #yestothedress #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #theweddinglegends #intimatewedding #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings

    Before we headed over to #gardensbythebay for their elopement, we did a first look here at #marinabarrage. @clayton.caulkins had never seen @havenlane in a wedding dress before! She had even hidden her dress from him the entire trip over here from Atlanta so that he wouldn't even know what her dress looked like! As you can guess, it was an emotional and truly touching moment for Clayton seeing Haven in a wedding dress for the first time with so much feels!! ⭐️✨ We could totally feel it too watching from behind our lenses. There's just something about a first look that is so magical and meaningful. A sign of amazing things to come in the years ahead as the marriage blossoms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Definitely blessed to have met these two and ever so thankful for a wonderful day spent with them! . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #elopement #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #theweddinglegends #intimatewedding #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings

    A while back in January we received a message from @havenlane and @clayton.caulkins saying that they would be visiting Singapore in February, and would like to elope at #gardensbythebay, where they would say their vows to each other. Singapore was the first place they ever traveled to together, and Gardens by the Bay where Clayton had proposed to Haven. So needless to say, the place held a special place in their hearts and is extremely special to them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Would we like to shoot their elopement? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Needless to say we said YES!! This sweet and super fun to be with couple flew in from Atlanta to elope under the magical tree of the Gardens and we were so honoured and privileged to witness the moment and document it for them. We both teared up as they said their vows and can't express how grateful we are to them for having us. It was truly such an intimate moment that honestly still feels a bit unreal to have been a part of. We are so happy for them - Clayton and Haven have such amazing chemistry together and were truly made for each other! Congrats you two on your marriage and we're sure the two of you will have many more fun and adventurous years ahead!! . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #elopement #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #theweddinglegends #intimatewedding #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #wedfolks #belovedstories

    Even our groupfies require professional Profoto lighting! Yes you can see our flash hiding itself conspicuously very subtly in the background bouncing light off the ceiling and being very professional haha. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And so there we were at the end of our shoot with the wonderful Claire and Charles, and what better way than to celebrate with a home cooked meal at our cozy 10 acre airbnb prepared from scratch by our ever so talented and resourceful chef ‍ @jadeyaumakeup (part of the reason why Darren married Jade, which proved to be an excellent life decision). Not sure if it was the cold weather or the whole day spent out shooting but our appetites were sure worked up during the entire trip and we all ate like ridiculous amounts! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But on a more serious note, it's times like this when we feel super grateful to our couples (and yes we've said this many times, but it's so true!) for trusting us with their wedding photos and being so awesome to work with during our shoots together. We sincerely appreciate the relationships formed and the laughs and conversations we have on our journey together to create some neat images. It's the bonds formed when working on such an important project together that lasts a lifetime and such a privilege to be a part of. Over these past 7 years there's been so many unforgettable experiences shared and this was definitely one of those times. Thanks Claire and Charles for joining us in Melbourne for our shoot together and looking forward to your big day next year! . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #weddingdress #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #travelphotography #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #melbournewedding #authenticlove

    Let's step back just a little bit towards the beginning our shoot with Claire and Charles, to our favorite flare shot taken during our 3 days together (and where we came up with the super awesome nickname for Claire, "Flare Claire" what could be more appropriate than that right?). We were in for an incredible sunset before heading over to Brighton and it was pretty awe-inspiring to see the sun blazing through the trees like that over at Carlton Gardens! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was pretty hilarious, we were actually intending to shoot at another part of the Gardens but as we were circling around for parking I spotted the light shining through and was like heyyy stop stop stop we gotta shoot here first! So we all pulled over and jumped out the car to race over to this spot! Sometimes you just get lucky like that but nothing wrong with being lucky! Shooting with sunflare is really one of our favorite things to do! We've been told many times that using flare like this is very much our style (pretty neat to actually have a kinda 'signature' thing admittedly haha). But great light like this is hard to come by so whenever we can pull it off it's always a YEAH GOT IT moment! And so to cap things off in that context being called "Flair Claire" could definitely be considered a pretty neat title to have. Yeah haha. Good times in Carlton Gardens and hoping to go there again - the main area we had wanted to shoot where the trees arch beautifully over the lawn was unfortunately cordoned off that day, but still there were like 7 other shoots going on when we were there! . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #weddingdress #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #travelphotography #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #melbournewedding #authenticlove

    This had to be pretty much the sweetest spot ever for an #airbnb that we've we've come across! A wooden cabin situated in the middle of a 10-acre farm with sheep (we accidentally found out you can herd sheep with a drone while we were taking video of the area lol!!) and cows grazing everywhere with full access to all the grounds, it was practically a photographic playground! We made plans to make this our last shooting location before we left and we all came away really happy with it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ First off it was just 10 minutes from Twelve Apostles where we had shot the previous day and 10 minutes from Port Campbell where there is some amazing fish and chips that you can eat in front of the water and enjoy a picnic. Definitely beat making the 6 hour round trip drive back to Melbourne right after the shoot! So we woke up bright and early after a good night's sleep (and an awesome shoot at Twelve Apostles) and after having the 20 something eggs that were left by our host, headed out the front door and into the fields to start shooting! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Easily the most convenient shooting spot ever as it was literally right in front of the cabin! We started off with some games to get into the flow of things and then it as the clouds parted ways were able to make this shot! We just love having wide open places to shoot at, there's just such a feeling of openness and freedom and it totally matches our shooting style. Such good memories thinking about our time in Port Campbell and can't wait to go back again next April! . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #weddingdress #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #travelphotography #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #melbournewedding #authenticlove

    I've always enjoyed street art! I've always admired the ability of these artists to apply a creative vision to their surroundings on such a large scale while add to the vibrancy of the cityscape. And so it's always something that we really like to do with our wedding photography, to seek out good street art and blend our subjects in with a sweet backdrop and have fun while they interact with it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Going to Hosier Lane every now and then is always fun because the art is constantly changing. It's like every time we go there we can't find a single piece that we saw at our previous visit. So when we see one that's inspiring, like this one, then the challenge is how to match up our couple within the piece and do it in a way that they're comfortable with and matches their personality, while also making for a photo that's got some wow factor that hopefully they wouldn't mind hanging up on their wall (or use as a phone wallpaper / Facebook profile photo ). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But sometimes they just know what to do like Charles and Claire here! They just took one good look at the piece which looks like an explosion of paint and off they went! . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #weddingdress #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #travelphotography #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #melbournewedding #authenticlove #hosierlane

    TGIF everyone time to head out and enjoy the sunshine for the weekend! We've never shot at Brighton before despite all the times we've been to Melbourne and totally had been dying to do a fun composite shot there since basically forever! Yeah there just aren't beach houses like this anywhere else in the world. As a matter of fact we went to check out the other set of boat houses out in Sorrento (further south about an hour away) but except for this one cool rising sun Japanese-inspired boat house (yeah just one) it really didn't have anything on Brighton and all its vibrant colours! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ By the time we got there with Charles and Claire the sun was already fading as there was a bit of traffic coming out of the city so as soon as we hit the parking lot we jumped out the car and...were like wow...that is A LOT of tourists! We were there on a weekday afternoon too so definitely it's become even more of a popular spot than before - we can't remember there ever being nearly that many people around! Fortunately everyone was happy to make the way for our awesome couple and we were super grateful that we were able to create this image for Charles and Claire! After a fun shoot there we were all hungry and it was time for some amazing #andrewshamburgers over at Albert Park! . . . . . #********** #weddingscoop #sgbrides #sgweddingphotographer #shesaidyes #ido #weddingphotography #weddingphotographer #weddinginspiration #weddinggoals #theknot #buzzfeedweddings #weddingstylist #gettingmarried #bridalideas #bridalcouture #bridegoals #weddingdress #yestothedress #dirtybootsandmessyhair #travelphotography #weddingscoop #destinationwedding #weddinginspiration #destinationphotographer #destinationbride #junebugweddings #melbournewedding #authenticlove
