Joanna & Matt – East Elevation Winter Wedding

August 30, 2017

When I first met Joanna, she probably just hit puberty.
So like a grumpy dad, I’m in denial that she’s married now, all grown up.

Her plan was to have a surprise wedding.
But since she and Matt are such a low-key couple, I’m not sure if any of the guests fell for their ‘engagement’ party to start with.

I wanted to share this wedding because it had the elements of a wedding that create beautiful photographs.

The couple had breakfast. (Very important.)
They picked up their cake personally from a pop-up shop.
They went home to get ready.
Then they went to the venue to have their ceremony.
Then food.
Friends.
Families.
Ceremony.
Dance.
(Ok, the last part they took lessons.)
And special guest dog/family Chief Justice Oliver.

Most of all they didn’t stress at all.
And in true Fitzroy¬†style, it’s this exact stress-free vibe that made this day so cool.

I spent maybe 5 hours in total shooting this day.
But I feel that I captured everything.
Everything that was them.

And I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t change a thing either.
