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.

Rosalba + Jason, Maitraya Private Retreat, Albany, November 2011 {wedding}

Perth couple, Rosalba + Jason were married in Albany in November.  When I asked them why they chose Albany for their wedding, Jason replied dryly that he thinks Rosalba took a pin, closed her eyes and let it fall anywhere on a map.  

But Rosalba says she was looking for a unique location that would make their day even more special. And Maitraya is certainly unique! This secluded homestead is perched on the most stunning, and yet isolated, piece of WA's coastline; a photographer's delight!

After a traditional ceremony at St Joseph's, the rain held off for us to hit the beach.  Although Rosalba's mum was very nervous making the beach 4-WD trip, I think she will agree it was worthwhile for such a beautiful setting for photos of Rosalba's large family - she has SIX gorgeous brothers!

I'm still so in love with Rosalba's amazing dress by Pallas Couture.

A million thanks to Anne for her assistance in capturing Rosalba + Jason's wedding day.

Sneak Peek; Hannah + Jamie's WET Wedding... {wedding}

A little bit of rain had no chance of wiping the smile off this beautiful bride's face this Saturday.     

Hannah has researched the meaning behind the saying "it's good luck if it rains on your wedding day". 

It comes from the Hindu marriage phrase of tying-the-knot; if it rains, the knot will be wet & a lot harder to undo, a symbol of the strength of your marriage. In that case, Hannah + Jamie's marriage is to be SUPER strong!

There's nothing like the fresh, clean feeling after the rain passes!

A Very Special Photoshoot... {personal}

Last night, Nic Duncan and I were very privileged to capture the last days of Jess Marshall's pregnancy.  We three "photogs" often catch up in Albany or Denmark to talk all things photography but this it the first time we've all come together to create photos.  

Here is a behind-the-scenes pic of a heavily-pregnant Jess posing for Nic just a few minutes before Jess bravely took to the river for a float ... all in the name of "art" - so proud of you Jess!

Sneak peek; Lisa + Daniel... {wedding}

A beautiful sunny day for Lisa + Daniel on Saturday. I was amused that a number of the guests commented on feeling cold ... coming from the Goldfields, they have different body temperature gauges to me!

Ella Rae Designs & Yarn for Hand-Knitting... {commercial}

It is always a pleasure doing an Ella Rae (designs and yarn for hand-knitting) shoot with this mother-daughter combination.  This shoot took place exactly 20 minutes after I pulled into Albany after a week's holidays in the heat-wave.  And what a lovely shoot to ease me back into reality!

Louise + Rob, Margaret River... {engagement}

I first met Louise and Rob when Lou was bridesmaid at Jade and Andy's wedding in Denmark in 2010 so I was thrilled to be asked to photograph their wedding which will be in Margaret River in a few months time. 

Remember WA's record-breaking heat-wave last month? Well, it broke about an hour before I met this couple at Xanadu Winery.  A very welcome breeze arrived just in time!  
But I don't think that is the reason this couple couldn't top smiling - what do you think?
