About this blog...

***** THIS BLOG HAS BEEN REPLACED IN 2012 ***** If you've come aross this blog site by accident, pop over to www.krystaguille.com for my current one *****

One lazy day in 2009, I decided to embark on a photo-a-day-for-a-year challenge. I set myself a goal to upload a different photo every day - some are of my gorgeous clients, some are of my ever obliging family and friends.

Well, I reached the end of the challenge year, and while I didn't quite succeed at a photo-a-day, this blog became part of my weekly routine.

And so I continue...at a new location.

Big sisters... {wedding}

These ones make me laugh!

Sneak peek; Handsome Red {engagement}

There's always an unknown quantity when you add an animal to a photo-session - especially a massive muscled striking creature like "Red".   A quick one from last night...

Hannah + Jamie, In Love {engagement}

I received an email from Hannah in January saying that she + Jamie planned to be married in February next year (the anniversary of their first kiss - this begins to paint the picture of what a romantic couple they are!!).  She said nobody knows yet - it's a secret - but she wanted to make sure I wasn't booked that day as they would like me to photograph their wedding.

Well, its safe to tell you now - I panicked!  Hannah is Hannah Luscombe, you know, of Everlasting Images - SHE'S A PHOTOGRAPHER.... A WEDDING photographer!  I calmed myself down enough to type a reply saying I flattered & what a huge honour it would be, & I looked forward to meeting her & Jamie soon.

Secretly though, I was thinking, she'll see sense.  She'll work out that I'm just a "pretend professional" & find the real thing to shoot her wedding!

Well, she didn't, and so last Monday, I found myself photographing a photographer & her lover!  Terrified!?  Leading up to it - yes!  But once we arrived at Hannah's father's stunning property in the Porongurups, excitement took over.  Here were two of the most "willing victims" I had ever worked with, in one of the most beautiful settings I'd ever find.  We even had the smoke from the Denmark fires adding a little bit of mystique into the mix.  How could I not love every minute?!

Hannah + Jamie - that was so much fun!  My nerves are gone - I can't WAIT to shoot your wedding.

You guys are the best!  xxx

redcow CHILD+HOME launch {event}

Last night, a new brand of designer kids clothing was unveiled at Albany's Summer Street Fair  - and it is a little bit special. 
Redcow Child+Home is the creation of Rebecca Freeman and Sonja Thomson - two clever Albany girls who happen to have a pair of pretty princesses between them  - Charlotte and Ella - who, no doubt, provided some inspiration for these stunning pieces. The fair is at Albany Town Hall today - make sure you get there early so you don't miss out!!

Now, about those adult sizes, girls??

Kylie + Russ, "First Look" {wedding}

First looks … to see each other on your wedding day, before that walk down the aisle.

When I met with Kylie + Russ before their big day, and they shared their plans with me, I mentioned the "first look" to them as they were open to breaking with tradition.  I was ecstatic when they agreed as I'd never witnessed one myself. What an honour, to be the only other person present to witness them laying eyes on each other for the first time on their wedding day.

Seeing each other before the wedding is a hot topic.  Some couples are absolutely opposed, preferring to stay with tradition while others have now started thinking, hmmmm, well, maybe…?  It's a personal thing.  

But I seriously doubt that you could ever regret having an intimate moment together, alone, and away from the excitement & crazy momentum of your wedding day.

And now, their first look...

Kym + Laurent, 1st Anniversary... {wedding}

This time last year, on a blistering weekend in the middle of heat-wave at Matilda Bay, I witnessed the official union of this stylish couple. (You may have seen my blog post here.)

Wishing you both a happy first anniversary.

Heidi + Leigh, Bali, 22 October, 2011 {wedding}

I have been so looking forward to sharing this beautiful wedding with you.  

I know it seems like a cliche to speak of how much "in love" a couple are on their wedding day.  I know it, but I'll say it anyway.   Heidi + Leigh are so very much in love.

Perhaps it was the amazing setting (Alila Villas, Uluwatu, Bali). Or maybe it was relaxed tropical holiday feeling.   Whatever it was, Heidi + Leigh's love made us all smile with joy! It was such an honour to witness your happiness... I get a bit choked up thinking about it.  K x
