What brought me to Fox Glacier other than wanting to photograph Lake Matheson was the FREE campsite at Gillespies Beach. There's shelter, toilet facilities and views of the Southern Alps from the campground! The beach itself is amazing, there's smooth pebbles and scattered driftwood as far as the eye can see.
I couldn't resist making this wedding day my first blog post, it may not be a recent occasion but it is one that means something to me (because the handsome groom is my brother!).
The wedding was held at Poet's Lane in the Dandenong Ranges, personally I couldn't have picked a better location myself, the photo opportunities around the venue were endless, surrounded by lush greenery and tall trees there was something to shoot everywhere I looked.
Dan (or 'Damage') and his beautiful bride Simone (or 'Simmy') spent the morning at home on the Mornington Peninsula, this gave me the opportunity to capture a few nice portraits using the available light from the bedroom windows, everyone was relaxed (except Dan) so naturally the photos turned out great - thanks guys! At the end of the day, just before the light faded we spent some time amongst the antique lanterns in the magical lane way at the venue.. it was an incredible ending to an unforgettable day.
once again.. congratulations Dan & Sim!
