I have always tried to update my social media and blog at least once a month. I’ve become slack. I haven’t done it. I thought I could do it, but I can’t. I keep telling myself I have plenty of my work online, it doesn’t really matter.
Well, it does matter.
About a month ago, I received an email from someone who I have never met or spoken to before, asking how things were, how are my weddings going and if I was planning on blogging anything new soon. I smiled as I read the email, but I didn’t think into it further. Soon after, I got another email, one from someone who has told me they have followed my work since I began photographing weddings. He too, was wondering when I was going to post something new, he told me he has been waiting it out, hoping for something new on the blog.
I sat here and thought about it. I let my friends and followers down. I don’t think I have an abundance of followers, but those that do follow me, I cherish. They are the people that make my business known. They are the ones that share and comment on my work. The people that have helped my business get to where it is.
I’m sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, but I promise, I’ll be trying harder.
Enough of my personal story though. I wanted to share one of the rare weddings I have actually photographed in Brisbane city. Gavin and Florence.
I got to meet the real Gav and Flo about 12 months ago when we did an engagement shoot in northern NSW, at their favourite beach, Kingscliff. We spent most of the day driving through long stretches of farm, forest and mountains until we finished up on the beach. They are everything outdoors. They are like a surf and turf, but Gavin and Florence.
I always wondered how their city wedding will show their nature side. From the moment Florence popped in and handed me my invitation, you can’t help but let your imagination go. Their invitation is a light brown, recycled paper and card combination. They have a tree cover, which is cut out and separate from the back sliding card. There is a heart shape cut out of the bottom of the tree with G+F showing through the back and a dog sits under the tree. This card alone, tells you Gavin and Florence’s story.
You can check out their engagement shoot here too (my blog).
