The first time I met Sally and Lane was way back in the early days of my photography ‘career’… the dizzy heights of shooting university parties and events. The finer details are a bit fuzzy (I try to black out the general university period of my life), although I do remember it involved some spontaneous power moves on the D floor.
Six years later, I find myself flying into Tasmania to shoot their wedding at the Museum of Old and New Art. Not gonna lie – it was definitely a struggle-town situation as I landed into Hobart that morning. The only way I could make the schedule work was by taking couple days break in the middle of Passenger’s Australian Tour. We finished up the show in Adelaide at around 2am that very morning, with the flight to Hobart at 6am the same day. Yeah, not the most ideal lead up to an entire day of shooting…
But man, did everyone bring their A-Game! It was an absolute pleasure working with everyone in such a unique and iconic location. We even hit the road for round two the next day to take on waterfalls in the forest, foggy roads, and finishing with a climactic battle against the wind and the rain atop Mount Wellington. I was seriously impressed at how committed Sally and Lane were and the level of trust they put into the creative vision. I mean, Sally barely flinched after we found a leech on leg whilst balancing on top of a massive log! Actually wait, no she did scream. But she stayed on that log!
I couldn’t have gone through the day without the help of new friend and excellent shooter, Cassie Sullivan. We’d never met in person but our styles complemented each other seamlessly, a lot of the shots below are from her lens! It was a lot of fun and this definitely won’t be the last time we shoot together. I feel like these are my favourite wedding images to date… congratulations guys, one for the ages!
