“Kate made everyone feel so comfortable on the day, she was a real calming influence whilst making sure we stayed to our timelines. With her thoughtful details leading up to the wedding and afterwards, she really made us feel special, and made Will and I remember to enjoy the process.”⠀ ⠀ 😭 I love, love love this work I believe I was created and put on this earth to do. If I can make a positive difference to my couples in a deeper way than just photos, I consider that a huge success. #katerobinsonweddings
According to @vogueaustralia it’s officially engagement season...! 💍 🎁 Anyone else excited?!
As a photographer, I think it’s so important for me to regularly put myself in my clients shoes, so I actually know what it feels like to be photographed.⠀ ⠀ Here’s 3 things I’ve learned from my experience on the other side of the lens:⠀ ⠀ 1. TRUST. When you are photographed, you are vulnerable. It’s important to trust your photographer, so you’ll be able to relax and know they will capture beautiful shots.⠀ ⠀ 2. DIRECTION. So many people say to me they don’t want to “pose”, and they want natural photographs. But trust me, with no guidance from your photographer you won’t know where to put your hands! With direction, there is no confusion and it definitely helps you relax.⠀ ⠀ 3. ENCOURAGEMENT. One of my favourite parts of being a photographer. You get to tell people that they are beautiful. As well as being a confidence boost, it’s an experience you rarely get elsewhere. It makes the shoot so much more enjoyable.⠀ ⠀ Not going to lie, it takes a little bit of convincing to get my man to take photos with me, but he’s usually more willing if I say it’s for research purposes!⠀ ⠀ Let me know if you think it’s important for photographers to get on the other side from time to time! 📷 @nataliefranke ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Having a big camera pointed at you on your wedding day can be intimidating. You ideally don’t want to worry about the photography at all, so here’s a tip that’ll help you relax and look your best on one of the most important days of your life.⠀ ⠀ Only smile when you genuinely feel like it. Yes, it’s your wedding day and you’ll mostly feel like smiling alllll day - but remember it’s not your job to be.⠀ ⠀ I’ll take a genuine smile over a forced one any day. One of the best compliments I’ve received from my brides is when they’ve said they hardly noticed me. I love being able to blend in to capture all those candid natural moments, and don’t worry I won’t ever ask you to say “cheese.” 😁⠀ ⠀ Swipe for more from this collab shoot with some of Brisbane’s most talented in the wedding world.⠀ ⠀ Venue @theboundaryhotel⠀ Stylists and shoot directors @theotherbridesmaid and @whitewhiteweddings⠀ Flowers @garden.graffiti ⠀ Cutlery, crockery and napery @supperclubco⠀ Glassware @tableforlouis⠀ Stationary @lauraelizabethdesign⠀ Hair @kathyhhair⠀ Make up @dyancopeman_makeup⠀ Gowns @georgewucouture⠀ Model @miss.ella.binney ⠀ @viviensmodelmgmt⠀

“The second we got married I was like, hang on, you are my family now. And we are a team. And anything we do in this life we do it together, as a family. So hard to describe that shift, but we both felt it energetically. That has to be the nicest thing.”⠀ ⠀ A quote from @eleanorpendleton on the @offlinethepodcast ✨ ⠀ In a culture that by in large tells you, “oh nothing will really change when you get married.” Or, “it’s all about the party”, it was SO refreshing to hear this honest conversation with a woman I have long admired this morning. Thank you @alisonlarsenrice for your brilliant, important work with your podcast. Your honest conversations with women that have influence go deeper than the polished, highly edited world of social media, are so, so needed. Highly recommend listening. What are some of your favourite podcasts??⠀

A gentleman will open doors, pull out chairs, and carry things. Not because she’s helpless or unable, but because he wants to show her that she is valuable and worthy of respect. 💕 Double tap if you appreciate it when your man does this!
6 YEARS ✨ So blessed to see my beautiful couple Cass & Kyall today on their 6th year anniversary! We took some family portraits with their two gorgeous kids.⠀ ⠀ I always get so excited to see my couples expanding their families. Usually I see updates on Facebook, but to reunite in person after 6 years was pretty darn special. More on my stories! Happy weekend friends ✨ I’m in Melbourne, we’re going to a friends wedding and I’m pretty excited to be attending as a GUEST. 👏🏻🥂
