It’s a scary and humbling experience to be asked to take wedding photos and it’s even more exciting when the wedding is a surprise!

I was thrilled when my darling friends Cassi and Keith asked me to take their wedding photos. And in a true reflection of their personalities the couple did things a little more playful and unexpected than the norm. We did a ‘secret’ wedding photo shoot then produced a photo album for them to use to drop the bombshell at a surprise party for their friends and family a month later. Awesome right!?

It was an absolutely delightful afternoon of photo taking with this hilarious and sweet pair. I met Cassi and Keith through mutual friend and they’ve both been involved in comedy – and you can totally see that playful, cheeky nature in the photos.

We took shots at the Darwin Botanic Gardens and Casusarina Cliffs at sunset. Here are some of my favourite shots.

Thank you so much Cassi and Keith for having me involved in this excellent surprise. You are a gorgeous couple and I wish you plenty of happiness, excitement and adventure! My first ‘official’ wedding photos! Can’t wait to take more.
