A little preview of Jess and Zeke’s engagement in beautiful Yarra Valley.
Last week amid all my chaos Melbourne’s Sassy Photographer (that’s me) met Melbourne’s “Sassy Celebrant” otherwise known as Anna Richards. I do enjoy meeting others working in the wedding world because inevitably couples ask me for recommendations for other service providers. As a lot of you would know I am very fussy about who I recommend. Alright, alright I’m discerning (far nicer word than fussy) about everything!
In order to recommend someone I have to be confident in their abilities, customer service and their philosophy towards their work. I am MORE THAN HAPPY to recommend Anna to the point of if I was getting married I would choose her myself!
For the record I’m already married and we were married in Tasmania by Jill Webster about a million years ago 😉 I totally recommend Jill to all my Tasmanian couples.
Anna and I got on very well she has a great sense of humour and is warm and personable. We discovered we had some similar interests, she does tai chi, I do yoga, she is a nurse and I used to work in health, we both enjoy creative writing. I did forget to ask her whether she likes dark chocolate.
Importantly, we have a similar approach to our work. I think this testimonial from this couple sums it up perfectly. You can read lots of other testimonals here on her site. Also her blog has lots of information to so be sure to have a read.Better yet if you need a celebrant or civil celebrant (she also does funerals, baby namings also) why not contact and meet Anna for an obligation free chat.
I am really excited to have found her (thanks Twitter!) and look forward to working with her in the future.
So it is a complete coincidence that I am launching this competition on St Valentines Day-I know no one will believe that in this day of marketing overload! Truth be told I was meant to be launching it 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately I had some of those technical website issues which prevented that- and caused me lots of headaches.
Anyway, they are half way fixed and I am excited to announce this win your wedding photography competition! I haven’t had a competition for 3 years maybe more- so all you love birds of all types here it is! Doing things a little differently this time and you can enter either on the blog or on instagram (which is what I use for fun).
So if you have said I do or if you are a same sex couple having a civil ceremony

My first photography session for 2016 was in Macleod and it started with a sizzle! Temperatures were extremely hot, however this gorgeous family were fantastic to work with and no one complained about the heat.
We tried to find patches of shade to take a mixture of family and individual shots. One of my favourites is this one of all the girls together.
Of course we took one of father and son
Yes, I know it’s not an engagement session, and yes I had to do it!
Thanks so much for being such troopers in the heat! I bet the icy poles tasted extra extra good 🙂
Happy New Year- I’ve been out and about taking different types of photos and relaxing with my family. The office opens again on Jan 10th. All emails will be attended to in between my holiday jaunts. 🙂
