As a wedding photographer with a penchant for picturesque backdrops, Blanche Point along the South Australian coastline holds a special place in my heart. Its rugged cliffs, weathered by the relentless Southern Ocean, provide a dramatic canvas for capturing moments of elated emotion and connection.
Blanche Point’s cliffs, shaped by mother nature’s hand, reveal a story of resilience and beauty. They bear witness to the ebb and flow of time, creating caves, arches, and other geological wonders that add a touch of mystique. A place where the raw elements of earth and water converge in perfect harmony is without question a wedding photographers dream.
The interplay of light and shadow upon the cliffs, coupled with the ever-changing hues of the ocean, sets the stage for truly captivating imagery. Whether it’s the gentle embrace of dawn lighting up the ocean or the fiery farewell of dusk beaming onto the cliffside, Blanche Point and the South Australian coastline offer an ever-changing canvas for a photographer’s creative vision.
Blanche Point is reminiscent of other beloved landscapes like that of Milos in Greece. The rugged beauty, the ancient stories etched in the rocks, and the boundless expanse of the sea all evoke a sense of awe and profound presence. It’s one of those places where time seems to stand still, allowing for the creation of photographs that are not just images, but living memories.
Locations like Blanche Point and the South Australian coastline epitomise the kind of setting that ignites my creative passion as a photographer. It’s an intersection of nature’s artistry and human emotion. And Mikayla and Lachlan’s wedding portraits were no exception. Get in touch with me if you want to create some magic here too.
Lachlan and I met when I was about 16 and he was 15 at our very first job. We were work friends for a few years and then started hanging out outside of work. I don’t think we really had an official first date. We would order a pizza and go for long drives together which is the kind of low-key date I love.
We got engaged on the 28th of December 2019. I’d been dropping hints for a few months, and by dropping hints I mean saying ‘wow, this is a nice ring, when do I get one of those’. I jokingly said once that a puppy would be a very welcomed engagement present which Lachlan apparently took very literally.
I can’t tell you why I didn’t become suspicious when he started showing me photos of puppies and asking what I thought, but nevertheless on the 28th of December we drove to Goolwa and picked up our much loved golden retriever, Phoebe. It was getting dark by the time we got her home, so we sat on the front lawn for a bit. Lachlan ran inside for something while I was entirely distracted by the cutest dog ever. Lachlan proposed right there on the front lawn. I managed not to cry though, which I was surprising!
We opted for a very low-key wedding day. Neither of us are very traditional, so it was important that the day just felt like ‘us’. Our colour theme was soft and light, our guest list short and our menu delicious.
Obviously I’m looking forward to marrying my best friend, but I’m also ridiculously excited for the food. Our caterers are just too good.
Work out what you want to prioritise and go from there. I knew as soon as I spoke to our celebrant that she was the one I wanted to marry us, and we knew for certain that we wanted the ceremony to be in Burbrook Forest under the iconic tree. We centred everything else around these two things which made decision making just a little easier.
