“After following a number of Melbourne creatives, I find myself endlessly scrolling through weddings in quiet laneways, drawn through the charming streets of Brunswick and eclectic bars in Collingwood. Nestled south of Perth is our very own piece of Melbourne’s charm called Fremantle + she is something quite special. Head to the southern end of Fremantle, there is a hub of streets, restaurants, galleries and laneways – I could sit and sip my coffee all day. In these streets, Fremantle is bursting with exquisite restored old buildings, stunning opulent doors and beautiful walls.” Kath of Jozi Blues Photography shares.
Shoot highlights: Organised in less than three weeks, everyone went out of their way to make the shoot as seamless as it was. Surrounded by such a vibrant and supportive community organising the wedding shoot was an absolute treat. The real couple brought an amazing connection with enthusiasm + excitement to the shoot, as if it was even a real elopement.
Did you face any challenges on the day? As often is the case with weddings, suddenly the day has flown by and the light is low. We only just made it down to the beach for the last minutes of light after the sun had set, possibly the most beautiful part of the day. For those who know me I rarely miss an opportunity to shoot last light at a Perth beach and this one evening not disappoint.
What led you to decide on this shoot location? Fremantle is a labyrinth of laneways, charming textured backdrops and alcoves. It provides so many gorgeous spots to photograph in. You can always find a shaded spot or a corner of light to shoot in.
Favourite detail: The dress, the simple straight lines, the gorgeous low back and the little sheer material under the arm sneaking in some intimacy. The soft alluring florals perfectly complimenting soft makeup.
Favourite moment: Everyone arriving at Moore & Moore café to get ready, with the dress fitting perfectly and the flowers tying in so beautifully.
Kath not only takes incredibly beautiful photos but she is such a beautiful and loving person too. We had so much fun!
