Phoebe and Daniel held their ceremony in Our Lady Help of Christian Parish in East Brunswick which was such a beautiful Church. I really enjoyed working under the magnificent ceilings and headlights. We were lucky enough to catch a brilliant Melbourne sunset down by Sandringham Yacht Club.
Thank you Langdon from Life in Motion for putting this video together. What a fun wedding!
It was a stunning day for Brooke and Ben. Sault was at its finest. The most magnificent display of lavender provided a beautiful back drop! The couple were married lakeside which was beautiful. The Bridal party enjoyed a quick game of Petanque during our photo shoot, and then a fabulous evening in Sault restaurant. Congratulations, Brooke and Ben.
Here is some images from the wedding of Kylie and Justin. This wedding was full of fun. Lots of love and laughs. Thanks to Werrribee Mansion for a spectacular backdrop for the day! It was a wonderful venue, and certainly helped in making these shots looks so great. I'm really pleased with them.
Thought you'd like a sneak peak of your photographs from your wedding to Patrick, held at one of my favourite venues- Stones of the Yarra Valley. I must say, I thought there was a good chance I could get myself into trouble! I was unaware Pat was a twin and got a huge surprise to find an identical man to the Groom….wearing the same suit! All turned out well though, with no hiccups… and Elisa lighting up the page as a truly beautiful Bride.
A morning wedding at The State Library of Victoria for Sally and Adam. This allowed us to wander through the city streets and Lanes to the destination of a Bluestone Restaurant for an intimate winter lunch! Congratulations, Sally and Adam. Photography by http://imageeight.com.au
Gemma and Iain held a beautiful ceremony at Xavier College Chapel followed by a sunset dinner at the Middle Brighton Baths. The timing was great, and the evening light was perfect as we went for a stroll around the Baths. Staying up late was worth it for the spectacular midnight city photo shoot! Congratulations.
Laurenza & Guillaume's Wedding was held at the amazing National Trust Mansion, Labassa, in North Caulfield. We took some beautiful shots in the grand stairway. The guilded wallpaper here is so delicate it cannot be photographed with a flash. Some natural light and special camera settings produced some wonderful images! The group moved to Butleigh Wooten in Kew to celebrate, and everyone, including the groom were given a huge surprise when Laurenza appeared in a second gorgeous wedding gown!
This one is a record! Wettest wedding ever for Image Eight! Irina and Mark actually took their vows in the pouring rain, under the cover of umbrellas!

Luckily for all of us it was warm and dry at Cafe Vue where they held their fabulous wedding dinner.
Here's a few shots from the fabulous wedding of Cindy and Mirko. We were blessed with some great locations in and around the city of Northcote, making for a great relaxing photo break between the wedding at Immaculate Conception Church in Hawthorn, and reception at the magnificent Regal Ballroom. A truly grand place for a big Croation Celebration!
Travis and Anita opted for a relaxed photography session prior to their ceremony. This worked really well as we were able to enjoy some of Brighton's best views and locations before a joyful ceremony and celebration at Quat Quatta. Photography by http://imageeight.com.au

Thanks Mary Ann and Andrew for your great praise in this month's Melbourne Bride magazine "his professionalism and ingenuity when the rain clouds began to gather. Despite the rain the couple say their photos will provide stunning reminders of their special day for years to come." That's high praise…..but have a close look at the double page image to see the rain is absolutely bucketing down! I need to thank the two of you for soldiering on and smiling and clearly enjoying your day despite the weather!
The intimate celebration of the marriage of Sammie and Emiko with 7 of their closest family and friends. A great day despite the need for umbrellas!

The wedding of Kylie and David was held at Toorak Shule. It was a very hot day, so it was lovely to end up at Sandringham yacht club by the cool ocean. A very classy couple, and lots of love and laughs throughout the day with their great bridal party, friends and family. Congratulations, Kylie and David
We had a fun-filled day on Saturday with the wedding of Georgia & Matt, with the ceremony at St George's Anglican Church in Queenscliff. Then we travelled between Point Lonsdale Yacht Club, Point Lonsdale Lighthouse and Barwon Heads where the reception was held “At the Heads” restaurant. The magnificent Buick from Geelong Wedding Cards really enhanced the mood.
Very impressed to see Image Eight's photographs in the first edition of the Geelong Advertiser Bride, a beautifully presented magazine featuring some gorgeous weddings down on the Bellarine Peninsula. One of those couples was Mia and Tim who were married at The Heights, and celebrated at The Pier on Geelong's waterfront. Congratulations.
A truely "Melbourne" evening for Zoe and Andrew who chose the Atheneum Club for their ceremony, which allowed a sophisticated game of pool, and a relaxing moment by the club's basement swimming pool. Church Street Enoteca was the perfect venue for their reception, speeches and dancing.
Congratulations to Orlando and Karen whose wedding was selected by Bride magazine for publication in their latest issue. I got to know Karen and Orlando doubly well, as we photographed their actual wedding in a downpour, so rescheduled a few days later to take some more shots- this time in glorious sunshine! I'm really glad we went for a reshoot! Not many people get to frock up twice, and it was great fun to traipse through the city with an ultra relaxed bride and groom!
What an amazing time for a wedding! Stones of the Yarra Valley was in its finest form with a natural backdrop of full Autumn colours.
There was a lotta love in the room for Elysha and Wil in Stones' Chapel in Coldstream, Yarra Valley, including a surprise serenade from a hidden band for Elysha. What a romantic groom! He's off to a good start!
Smiles all round as they progressed to their tea ceremony held in the newly renovated stables and reception in the amazing Barn.
Vonnie and Steve ran a fabulous event for Elysha and Wil and all their family and guests. It was a really special day, and I truly enjoyed being a part of it. Thanks for choosing Image Eight for your photography. Hope you enjoy all your images.
I met Ilona and Chris photographing Ilona's brother's wedding. I was so pleased to be awarded the chance to spend another day of celebrations with this fabulous family.
Ilona and Chris were married at Quat Quatta, Ripponlea, Melbourne.
What a stunningly beautiful couple, with Chris wearing the sharpest suit I've seen in a long time!
A modern Jewish wedding held under the Chuppah in the gardens of Quat Quatta.
The reception followed straight on from the ceremony, so we photographed the Bridal party and families in the beautiful grounds of Quat Quatta.
Illona and Chris' guests were treated to a fantastic party and celebration of their marriage. I am getting to love the Hora and the amazing atmosphere that is created when the Bride and Groom are soaring above their guests on chairs. It so much fun, and a true wedding celebration.
At their request, I stayed the whole evening and had the pleasure of "leaving" with the Bride and Groom to accompany them into the City where we had the chance to photograph them with the cityscape of the Docklands. It was great to have the couple all to myself and watch them unwind and reflect on their day.
Gee Amanda and Damien were fortunate last week! Another gorgeous couple and an equally stunning day especially for photos by the beach in Brighton St Joan of Arc Catholic Church, Brighton was the beginning of the celebrations with Father Martin Dixon overseeing the service. Then on to the wedding party photos among the bathing boxes and along the waters edge, Dendy Beach with the Melbourne city skyline as their back drop. The celebrations concluded at The Brighton Savoy.
Congratulations Andrew and Mary Ann. I don't think I've ever photographed a wedding with more smiles and clapping! Such a happy, happy day! We also encountered one of Melbourne's wettest days and heaviest downpours, but that didn't phase the wedding party or the congregation. Ormond Anglican Church buzzed with joy. After a very wet photo shoot near North Rd and at Ardrie Park we proceeded to malvern valley Receptions, at malvern Valley Golf Club for a big celebration. Thanks for choosing Image Eight. It was great to be part of your day.
So enjoyable to be part of Jade and Jade's amazing day! A truly gorgeous couple, and what a great time we had wandering the city, stopping at Hosier Lane for some great shots, The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art ( ACCA ) where we posed with the Etype jag, Crown casino, and then on to 89 at Eureka Tower. The sky looked fantastic at night from the Sky Deck Edge platform. Thanks to the two Jade's for choosing Image Eight for your photography. I thoroughly enjoyed your company, and the whole day.
Congratulations to Bridie and David. It was such a pleasure to photograph your wedding your wedding!

Let me know when its time to renew your vows, so we can go back and do it all again!
Spent a great day working with a world class Barrista, Justin Metcalf, and Mrs Fields herself today! After sampling at least eight coffees from their new beverage range, you realise there's only so much coffee you can drink before you experience heart palpitations! Every time I work with Justin I end up with a caffeine overload.
Pemara enlisted me to shoot some new packaging for In Essence today. All those aromatherapy products made for quite a relaxed shoot.
A wonderful 4 page spread of Sean and Jane’s Fiji wedding. Seeing it in print brought back the fabulous memories of the warm days in Fiji and the amazing colours of the sky and beach surroundings!

Wow, what amazing furniture! We had a fabulous day in the sun down in Brunswick shooting some really unusual pieces of furniture from Mark’s collection. The warehouse looks full of great pieces. Thanks to the boys for bringing everything out to the laneways in the vans! It was a big effort and it all paid off. The shots are great. I’m really pleased with them, and not a bad shot of the owner too.

The brief said “two showgirls, one Latin singer, a Smart car and our host, Bridget McIntyre!” We weren’t quite sure what to expect, but thankfully it was a great shoot and the brief was correct, and not at all as crazy as it sounded! Met at Melbourne Town Hall and it was a great privledge to help promote the Melbourne Ball on the steps of the Melbourne Town Hall. Good luck to the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund.
Congratulations to all the coaches who have so generously given their time throughout the winter footy season. The kids have loved their Saturday mornings running through all the AFL skills.
What a beautiful wedding at Our Lady of the Basilica, and Rippon Lea! Please enjoy Alex’s romantic sentiments in thinking back on his wedding day. “Seeing Olivia walk down the aisle was a moment I will never forget. She looked so beautiful, was glowing from the inside out with happiness – I couldn’t wait to exchange our vows and say ‘I do’. It was a great feeling to walk out of the church together as husband and wife (even if I did have to do it on crutches!!) becauseI knew that whatever happens in life, we’ll always make it through together!”
I enjoyed today so much! I photographed the celebrations of a beautiful couple commemorating 60 years of wedded bliss! They were surrounded by family and friends and still had a twinkle in their eyes for each other. I can only hope that I will be celebrating in the same style with my beautiful wife at our 60th anniversary!
A great day in the studio shooting an amazing array of futons and bedding! So tempting to just jump in and have a nap. The beds looked so comfy!

Happy 90th Birthday, Epworth!
On Saturday 27 February at the prestigious Plaza Ballroom in the Regent Theatre. Victoria’s largest provider of private not-for-profit healthcare services, Epworth celebrates 90 years of providing hospital services in Richmond. Opening its doors in a converted mansion in 1920 with just 25 beds and a staff of five, the original benefactor Sir Alfred Danks could only have dreamed that Epworth HealthCare’s yearly admissions would exceed 100,000 patients nine decades later. Congratulations, Epworth. Image Eight is really enjoying being involved with all your celebrations.
Travelled to the cute little town of Moonambel where my sister in law lives to photograph their annual fireworks display. My images of their beautiful handmade paper lanterns and enormous bonfire were used for Moonambel Events’ posters and flyers distributed throughout Central Victoria. Amazing community spirit on the night, and you could really feel the sense of occasion. I’m so pleased with the way the posters worked out. They look great.

Epworth Healthcare Family and Friends Sports and Leisure Day
Just got back from a hot day in the sun photographing Epworth Hospital’s Family Day. The highlight was the ABI Cup Soccer Match between Epworth Healthcare staff and The Victorian Police. The money raised on the day went to Epworth’s Rehabilitation for Acquired Brain Injury Unit. It was awesome to be in the middle of the Bob Jane Stadium when the Police helicopter landed. The kids loved it (almost as much as having their faces painted!)
