Rachel & Ben

Shooting Rachel & Ben's wedding was a welcome throwback to a past life when I used to shoot the social pics for the Esplanade Busselton's Facebook page (hey, we all need to start somewhere). A mention of the "Silent Disco" during the speeches had me flashing back to when I first captured them together a few years ago. Rachel and I also collaborated away from the pub, with a portraiture session at home and the beach. Ben came to hang out and found himself in front of my lens in the process. So it was great transition to witness a blooming love finally becoming something more in this intimate event. An event on a beautiful property in Sabina River (inland from Busselton), with so much love and energy from family and friends invested into its preparation.
