Susannah and Leon – 28th November 2009

It was a hot and humid morning as we set off for the wedding of Susannah and Leon. The sort of day that you just want to laze around in air conditioning drinking ice cold drinks. However we had a wedding to shoot and what a great wedding it was.

It was clear that Susannah had put alot of thought into the little touches and all the blue offset everything perfectly. Everything felt so bright and happy even though there were times when we felt like wilting in the heat. Susannah wisely stayed in front of the air-conditioning while preparing for her big day.

The wedding was at the City Tabernacle Baptist Church on Whickham Terrace. This is a church that I have loved and admired for years but have never been inside of and what a stunning church it is. We met the boys here and took a few shots of Leon on the steps at the back of the church that lead down to the basement levels. The light that flows into the church is amazing and I felt like it was making everyone radiate positivity. Leon was all smiles while waiting for Susannah to arrive… and she did arrive, early! She was sent to do a couple of laps around the block while the rest of the guests took their seats.

Being a typical Queensland day, you know that if it’s hot and humid in the morning, you can expect a thunderstorm as the day moves along and the thunderstorm hit just as we were due to start shooting the location images. However we also know that in Qld, these types of storms are short lived and sure enough, the storm moved on but left the day slightly cooler with perfect overcast skies.

Susannah and Leon, congratualtions on your marriage and we hope you enjoy your sneak peak.

Alicia, I commented here the other day, but it seems to have disappeared into cyberspace. But just wanted to say that I adore all the images from this wedding (and every other wedding!). You guys really are so very, very good at what you do. This couple must be thrilled.

really amazing job. some of the first shots of the bride, and the groom on the steps were mmy favs. You won me over with those!

Susan - January 24, 2010 - 8:28 pm

Wow. I love your photos. My favorite is the shoes (I'm all about shoes!) the lighting must have been tricky for you, but you made them work for the moment you were capturing them. Amazing work!

Absolutely lovely! I can't pick a favorite but the exit from the church, the girls under the umbrella and the early photos of the bride are amongst my favorites.
