Hunter Valley Wedding

2018 Retrospective by Lachlan Jordan

I don’t know what it was about 2018 but for me it somehow simultaneously seemed to go by really quick, whilst also feeling like a long year. Maybe that’s because it was very busy year. Lots of changes happened for me throughout 2018. Some more planned than others. I guess the biggest change was leaving Newcastle towards the end of the year and moving to Crescent Head on the Mid-North Coast.

This year I captured more portraits than previous years and I personally feel there has been a lot of growth in that side of my photography. I am thankful for those who have hired me to capture their portrait, or cover their event or wedding throughout 2018. I've met some really wonderful people throughout the year which makes pursuing this career even greater. I hope in 2019 I get to continue meeting wonderful people and grow my business even further.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you enjoy this post looking back on my photography for the year of 2018.

Joey + Daniel Hunter Valley Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

I first met Joey at a Cafe I used to work at. She was a regular customer of the Cafe and I always made sure to look after the regulars. One day I noticed her Engagement ring and enquired about Wedding plans. I told her I also do Photography and gave her one of my cards. About eight months pass and I get a Facebook message from Joey telling me that her and her partner had set a date and wanted to talk wedding photos.

Joey and Daniels Wedding was an intimate day at the Millfield Homestead out in the Hunter Valley. There were lots of personalised touches including her Wedding Dress which was made by both her Mum and Nanna. With about 30 guests of close friends and family it was an emotional but wonderfully happy day and I was glad that I was asked to be a part of it.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful celebration of love.

Daena + Jess' Hunter Valley Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

I'm not going to waste time here on the politics of Gay Marriage in Australia, because it will turn into a rant and I would rather focus on the positives in this blog post. Let me just say I think love is love and everyone should have the right to marry whoever they want.

Everything about Daena and Jess' special day was the same as any other wedding, apart from the legal documentation. It was two families coming together to celebrate the love of two human beings. It was an emotional day full of love, smiles, laughter and tears of joy.

Daena and Jess declared their love in front of friends and family reading vows they had both prepared themselves. You could see the happiness and feel the love these two share for each other.
