I’ve shown the slideshow before, but here is the official blog post from Nelson & Jess’ wedding at the perfect Summerlees in the Southern Highlands. We’ve seen the progress of N&J’s relationship – beginning with the live proposal I shot earlier, and then their wonderful autumn e’session.
Nelson is an amazing person, I call him my Nelson boy. He has assisted me on many weddings on the lead up to his own wedding and a few since then. Both him and Jess are the most lovely people and I find myself moved to call them my friends and part of the Vibrant team.
Thanks to Hannah for 2nd shooting & my wife Naomi for also helping out <3
I really could have blogged every image I gave them, but it would make for a very long blog post… so here is a handful we selected, the slideshow again at the end…
I love this outdoor ceremony location against these tall trees…
Jess’ dad married them himself which was special, but extra special was, he also married Nelson’s parents ages back!
signing the register in the heritage listed rotunda…
Nelson’s parents – Neil + Ale – Ale who also photographs and has a lovely portrait business.
even though I had Naomi & Hannah helping out taking photos, Nelson still insisted on assisting during the shoot! Can’t keep that boy away 🙂
apparently these yellow flowery things are a hideous noxious weed which the owners strongly dislike, they make pretty photos though 🙂
love this last bit of light of the day…
Nelson & Jess did an amazing job with their themeing. They built around a Tiffany blue and a matching green.
and then the slideshow – a few more photos in there. Click the image below to load it up – wait for it to load its full beautiful-ness.5 Comments | Leave a Comment

No 1up today – but rather a whole bunch of 1ups – courtesy of a slideshow from Neslon and Jess’ gorgeous wedding at Summerlees, Sutton Forest. I’ll do a proper blog post down the track – a ridiculous amount of gorgeous wedding details and other beautiful photos I couldn’t fit into one slideshow 🙂

Aloha from Maui, Hawaii! Last Saturday was another super special wedding just days after my little sister Bianca’s wedding! It marked the 200th wedding for Vibrant Photography (yay!) and the wedding of my dear assistant, Nelson and his lovely Jessica. Here’s a few quick shares from the day…

Happy New Year everyone!
I couldn’t think of a better way to start the blog off for 01.01.11 then by blogging a real-life proposal I shot back in December!
Many of you recent-brides will recognise Nelson as the assistant that has come along to weddings with me (the “one with the amazing eyes” as some guests have put it). Each wedding of recent we worked together, Nelson chatted about his plans to propose to Jess. He thought an opportunity where she wouldn’t expect it, would be to hide it under the guise of helping me with a fashion shoot. Therefore I “needed a couple to stand in for a test shoot I had for an upcoming fashion shoot” and so Jess came to the day expecting such. In the lead up to the shoot, Nelson had gone and asked Jess’s dad for his blessing, and also had designed and paid for the engagement ring. Poor girl had no idea what was coming 🙂
We proceeded with a mini shoot around some of the grounds of Summerlees Cottages in Sutton Forest…
middle of the day photography isn’t too much of a problem 🙂
Nelson making it look gooooooood…
yup brides if you book now you can also have Nelson at your wedding. (I know I know, good-looking photographers overload! ha!)
the rain and clouds were here-ing and there-ing, but made some pretty photos…
then we setup an area, and after a verbal cue, Nelson lightened his pocket…
I think Jess’ first response was ‘are you serious??’ I’m not sure it had sunk in yet… this wasn’t part of the shoot!!
a few pretty celebratory photos around the grounds…
then a getaway in a classic Rolls courtesy of Highlands Chaufered Hire Cars…
such a gorgeous couple together…!
My dear Nelson – Thanks so much for inviting me to join in on such an amazing day! I can’t wait until your wedding day at the end of this year!
Jess – what an amazing day – you looked gorgeous and I can’t begin to tell you how excited Nelso was in the build up to this day!
Thanks Alex for helping out, it was truly special you were there!
Thanks Patty and Roger for your kindness in letting us photograph on your beautiful Summerlees <3
thankyou thankyou thankyou :))
