Marble Hill Wedding, Adelaide, South Australia.
Adelaide Wedding Photography by Israel Baldago.
I love chance. Sometimes I feel so fortunate because life tends to hand me some beautiful opportunities. My first contact with Justin and Cheryl was through Justin’s sister. She’d happened across my photography, and looking at my approach, considered me to be a good fit for Justin & Cheryl. After the first meeting at Red Door bakery, I knew we’d be a great fit, when Justin and I chatter for over an hour after Cheryl had left the appointment to attend a dress fitting.
From there, these guys continued to impress me, with their love and connection – our first time shooting together at their engagement session, they both settled into the experience together, with Justin even shedding a tear as he pictured his wife as his bride to be. Planning a wedding day can be daunting, but when you have a creative mind and leverage your friends and connections, you can certainly get some beautiful results, every little detail they planned was gorgeous. From the beautiful wedding ceremony at Marble Hill, in the Adelaide Hills, to the luxe reception at the Sanctuary in the city, Cheryl and Justin planned a day they could cherish and enjoy with their friends. To me, wedding photography isn’t about ticking off images from a shot list, or trying to get the perfect “hero shot” that will be published in a magazine. It’s about letting yourself go to enjoy all the little, REAL moments, and celebrating and cherishing the person you’ve planned this day for. My role is to create some visuals of those memories you are making and to freeze time for you, so you can jump back into that moment several years from now and relive your wedding day, through the photo.
Justin & Cheryl, thank you both so much for your kindness from our initial meeting, up until even now and in sharing your wedding day experience with me. I wish you both the very best
