Lea & Chris {Byron Bay Wedding Photographer}

Lea & I met at a photography workshop and clicked straight away. We stayed in contact and I was ever so excited when she asked me to photograph her wedding in Byron Bay earlier this month. I was even more excited after her and Chris’ engagement shoot in Sydney, because I knew we were going to have a really, truly amazing time. I love meeting and getting to know people who make me laugh and who I have so much in common with.

Lea and a couple of her amazing girlfriends planned this wedding down to the very last detail, and they did a brilliant job. I think you can really learn a lot from someone by the lengths their friends will go to make them happy, and these girls really went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. We should all be so lucky to have friends like this in our lives.

It was a small and intimate affair, with guests travelling from all over to see them become a family and celebrate with them.

This is the story of Lea & Chris’ wedding.

It is a beautiful story.

It is one of laughter and of friends and of family, and above all else, it is a story of love.

And these things, I think, make the best, most beautiful stories.
