Jason & Melissa Wedding Day

Jason & Melissa’s Wedding at Osteria

I remember as if it happened yesterday, the moment the door opened at Osteria and little Milla saw her Daddy waiting for the arrival of his beautiful family at their wedding. There was soft music playing and then little Milla calling out “DADDY” and racing down the aisle to her Daddy. The joy and love it little Milla’s voice touched all our hearts and set the tone for what was a beautiful ceremony celebrating the love that Jason & Melissa have for each other.

It was such a wonderful day working for Rachel from Atomicbutterfly Photography to capture Jason & Melissa’s wedding day.

2014 Year in Review

2014 Year in Review

Wow, I can’t believe the year has past. It’s a wonderful time to sit back and reflect on what an amazing year it has been this year.

A little over 12 month’s ago, I made a huge leap from working as a Senior Associate in a busy accounting firm, to following my heart and focusing on my photography business and my family. I can honestly say I would not change it for anything. Working on your own business instead of for someone else has definitely been a huge learning experience and every day there is something new to learn. But even so, I have loved every minute.

This year has been full of some big personal achievements for me including

  • My first Silver award at the Australian Professional Photography Awards in the Birth Category. This was the first time that birth photography had it’s own category at the awards and it was such an honour to have one of my images recognised as being exceeding professional practice in this exciting area of photography. I have to say, that being present and documenting the birth of a new baby into the world, would have to be one of the most rewarding experiences and I can’t wait to document more births in 2015.
  • Becoming a fully accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). While I have been an emerging member of the AIPP for a few years now, I have spent time this year being mentored by a member of the AIPP and applied for my full membership and received confirmation in December that I was now fully accredited. This has been a dream of mine for a while now and I feel so proud that all of my hard work has paid off. What does this mean for my clients, that they know that the photographer they have chosen is trained, educated and skilled as a professional photographer. I am very much committed to continuing my education and training going forward and providing each and everyone of you the highest level of service that I can.
  • In November this year, my husband and I signed the lease on a commercial premises to operate Mary Wheatley Photography from. This is still a work in progress as we are working hard to creating a beautiful space that will be used for all my newborn photography work, to meet with beautiful clients to get to know each other and discuss their wedding plans or their birth plans, to show all my wonderful clients their gorgeous images and work with them to create some beautiful wall and display art pieces for them to enjoy in years to come.

None of this would have been possible without the love and support of all the wonderful people that I have meet over the last 12 months. I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your lives and create some wonderful photographic memories for you all. Each and everyone of you have enriched my life so much and for that I am so thankful.

So here it is my 2014 Year in Review, all the wonderful people I have had the pleasure of meeting and photographing this year.

2014 Year in Review

I am so excited for 2015. I know it will bring so many more new people into my life and some returning ones as well. From welcome a new baby into the world, celebrating the joining of 2 people in love at their wedding, and having fun hanging out with some wonderful families, I can’t wait to meet you and get to know you and to create some beautiful photographs to remember these special times.

If you are looking for a photographer for 2015 or beyond, bookings are now open and I would love to hear from you.

Kirsty and Daniel – Engagement Session

I remember driving out to meet Kirsty and Daniel and thinking at the time that with the Ekka on I would love to do an engagement session at the Ekka incorporating in it all the fun, colour and happiness that the Brisbane Show offers.

When I meet with Kirsty and Daniel I could see straight away that they would enjoy doing something different and I thought that an Ekka engagement session just might be them. During our chats getting to know each other, Kirsty then raised the idea herself and at that moment I knew it was a match made in heaven. Daniel wasn’t so such to start with, but between Kirsty and I we managed to convince him how great it would be.

So on peoples day (yes we did choose the most busiest day to do our photo shoot) we meet up at the Ekka for a fun filled night. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much, the joy and fun they had was so contagious The end result, we had an awesome afternoon and some gorgeous photographs to look back on for years to come.

I can’t wait for Kirsty and Daniels wedding next year, I just know it is going to be awesome.

Georgie and Branden | Beloved Photographer

Georgie and Branden choose one of the gorgeous beaches on the Gold Coast for their engagement session. I love doing sessions down at the beach as the light is just gorgeous and we always have so much fun. Before Georgie and Branden’s session I had them complete my couples questionnaire. I love getting my couples to do this as it gives them a chance to reflect on their relationship and what the other means to them. I then love to incorporate some of the gorgeous snippets of information from the questionnaire on to their images as a beautiful reminder of the wonderful love and bond that they share. 

After Georgie and Branden’s session, Georgie told me that this was the first time they had every had a profession photography session and that she had so much fun. It so warms my heart to know that firstly they loved having their photo’s taken and that they loved the end result. I know that Georgie and Branden will treasure these images for years to come. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in spring next year.

Sarah & Michael | Beloved Session Brisbane

I have recently completed some training in what is known as Beloved Photography. For me my images are more than just photo’s where everyone looks at the camera and say’s “Cheese”. I love being able to capture true emotions and connections and this is in essence what Beloved Photography is about.

Sarah & Michael responded to a call out that I did to complete my training. Recently engaged, and also recently discoing that they are expecting their first child, I was so excited to be able to send some time with them both, getting to know them and along the way capturing some beautiful images that I know they will treasure.

I would love to share with you all some words from Sarah & Michael regarding their Beloved Session…..

The outcome from the Beloved photoshoot with Mary was beautiful. I couldn’t have been happier. Not only did we end up with stunning photos, but the entire Beloved process brought my partner and I closer as a couple. It really helped us take the time to really appreciate each other. I’m so grateful. Thank you so much Mary!” Sarah

Let me start by saying thank you for the opportunity for Sarah and I to take part in your work. The photos turned out fantastic and all the comments I have been giving have all said how you captured our love for each other perfectly! It was extra exciting for me to hear some of the nice things and receive the gifts from Sarah for she is not as open and as ‘public affectionate’ as me, but that is one of the things I love about her. I thought the whole concept of the beloved photo shoot is a great way to capture the REAL emotion and on spot reactions and affections. You are so suited for this style of work being such a people person and lovely hearted.” Michael

Geraldine + Harry | Wedding Photographer Brisbane

In the lead up to Geraldine and Harry’s wedding day we had been having the most amazing storms here in Brisbane. The day started with some rain but it quickly cleared to a sunny day. As it got closer to wedding time, we could see the storms starting to roll in but we were lucky, they went right around us and we were blessed with the most gorgeous afternoon.

Geraldine and Harry are such a gorgeous couple and their wedding was just beautiful. Thank you both for sharing your day with me. I wish you both so much joy and happiness. xo
