Brett & Bodene - Church Road Winery Wedding

These days thanks to the rise and rise of the 'selfie', most of us have far too many photos of ourselves...and more than too many of our kids. And because so many of them are a little bit average (ok lets be honest, they're awful), we have all at some stage made the investment in professional family photography.

Bodene and Brett break that mould. Not only are they gun-shy of photos on phones, but they've never had a photo of them together as a couple...let alone with their awesome three boys.

So it was a huge responsibility and also a privilege to be the first person to give them that experience, and on such at such a significant event...their wedding day.

What amazed me was how natural all of them were in front of the camera. And I'm so stoked to hear from Bodene that since seeing a few of the sneak peeks on Facebook, they have now started taking family photos on their phones. Which is awesome, because that's how we shape our history and memories.
