What my brides are saying.

It’s always a nice thing when a bride and groom thank you for the work that you’ve put into their wedding day. So many people need to come together all at the same time to make a wedding day happen, but it’s usually just the photographer (and sometimes videographer) which spend most of the day with the bride and groom. So you tend to become friends with them as you’ve shared a fair amount of time on a very special day in their lives. So when you receive a thank you note like the following, you realise how much it means to them. This came from a couple who I was lucky enough to work with in February this year. A really hot day mind you..just thought I’d throw that in!

“We just wanted to thank you for your hard work and effort in photographing our wedding. You were amazing the whole way through our wedding planing.

At the very beginning of organising our budget for our wedding, my husband and I sat down and agreed that we couldn’t put a budget on a photographer. The reason being was we both agreed that you couldn’t put a price on making sure our wedding day was captured perfectly. We had heard too many horror stories. Including the most important person in a brides life missed out on having a professional photo on the day, due to the photographer being unorganised and inexperienced.

Me being new to Geelong I relied on word of mouth. When I asked around your name Riccardo popped up many many times and I am truly grateful that.

Riccardo, you were professional, fun and really listened to what we wanted in our photos. Best of all you delivered. We felt comfortable that you had it under control and that’s exactly what you did.

Brides to be, I cannot stress enough the importance of having a fantastic photographer to photograph the biggest day of your life. Our advise, don’t sell yourself short on something like this. After all it’s true what they say, your big day goes so quickly and your professional photos are the one thing that you will look back on, show your family/kids and display in your home, for the rest of your life.” Maz & Andrew

Courtney & Denis

We were fortunate enough to have a beautiful Winters day for Denis and Courtney’s wedding day. I have known Denis’ family for many many years, so it was also good for me to see them all again.¬†What better place in Geelong to get married in that St. Mary’s Basilica. Courtney wore a stunning gown by Raffaele Ciuca of Fitzroy. We were fortunate enough to be able to photograph in Courtney’s old school, Geelong College. The architecture of the building made for a stunning backdrop. We then headed off to the Geelong Waterfront, which has a huge array of different spots to photograph couples. Being that it was a bit chilly, the bridal party stopped in at The Edge for a few drinks. I took advantage of this opportunity to get a nice photo of all the bridal party enjoying themselves. I absolutely love that image, everyone laughing and having fun, the way that all my weddings are designed to be! Finally we headed back to the Croatian Centre for the reception.

Thanks Courtney and Denis for choosing me as your wedding photographer and making me part of your special day.

Riccardo.

Fiona-Maree & Nicholas

A beautiful and classically styled wedding was in store for me when I photographed Nicholas and Fiona-Maree’s wedding. Like a true love story, every detail of the wedding was planned and the scene was set for the love story to fall into place. Fiona-Maree wore a stunning gown by Fairytale Bridal while her flowers were the clever creation of Beachside Blooms. I must say that I have photographed many weddings where Beachside Blooms have supplied the flowers and they have always been spectacular creations. The wedding took place at Sacred Heart Chapel in Geelong. Being that it is very close to the city, we were able to use a few different locations for Nicholas and Fiona-Maree’s wedding photography. We soon headed down to the Vue Grand in Queenscliffe where the reception took place.

A big thank you to both Nicholas and Fiona-Maree for letting me be a part of their very special wedding day.
