The Retro Bride Photo?

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, August 3, 2008

A blast from the past?  No not really.  Entirely a coincidental pic of a bride receiving a phone call from her almost groom.  But you know in my own wedding album is a photo of Heather all dolled up in her wedding dress with phone in hand.  Thing is I didn’t ring her at that point.  It was the traditional photo of the day.

Well in this pic Felicity had just finished getting her hair done and I was taking a few pics of her prior to heading away from the “make-over pit”!  And her man just wanted to hear her voice.  It was terrific.  So we kept taking pics to record it.

There you go 🙂

Felicity loving the sound of her man.

Northam Wedding

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, June 22, 2008

Northam is a country centre 100kms east north east of Perth in the beautiful Avon Valley. Two weeks ago I went there to assist Chris Brown [Small Package Films] in photographing Benella & Greg’s wedding.

Absolute fabulous day. Touch of cloud that became a beautiful diffuser as the afternoon went on. Just what any photographer will order for some outside park photos down by the Avon River.

Great bit about this wedding was that the guys were ready to go for the pics when I arrived. That was awesome guys. This meant a relaxing opportunity to get some photos without being too rushed. So I’m mainly going to show pics of the guys,… and maybe tomorrow a few of the amazing 1929 Vintage cars tooooo – courtesy of our lovely bride’s grandfather. And it’s true, even for Granddad’s, that a guy has to have his toys :-). Of course, just to even it up I might throw in some of the colour that the ladies added!

Guys Ready To Go

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, May 6, 2008

Sean was just a tad nervous. We used all the blues of the room and furniture as a calming effect for a pic full of smiles that actually camouflage the reality of inner butterflies. We guys don’t like to admit such a thing though!Relaxed formal for guys full of nervous energy

Sean & Melissa

Posted by akessonphotography on 1, April 6, 2008

Few weeks ago I posted some pics of a prewedding shoot with this terrific couple.

Well last Sunday they were married in an afternoon outdoor ceremony about 100 kms north of Perth. Great wedding. Fabulous day – though a bit bright outside during the ceremony [that’s the photographer in me who likes a pile of fluffy white clouds to help with the lighting!!!] The whole wedding party were a fun group who appeared to really enjoy themselves all through the day. And with all the hard work that went into making the day just right it was really great that the day progressed pretty well without a hitch. A wonderful wedding.

Melissa was so beautiful that Sean just had to shed a tear when came down to join the ceremony. They both wore ivory/cream and the ladies had little black gowns.

One pic for tonight and some more during the week. For those who took part in the “photobooth” we had up, you can see some of them on the Akesson Photo Gallery. You will need a password – Melissa’s surname again. Again there will be more pics up in the various sections over the next week or so.
