As many couples will attest, planning a wedding can be a stressful time. For many Perth couples it can be especially hard with couples often spending time apart due to FIFO work.

It was so gorgeous then, that for this engagement session, this small space in time, Nikita and David were all smiles. This fabulous quiet time together where all the to-do lists were forgotten and the real reason why they were planning a wedding was remembered.

Love.

Because in the end it’s not the wedding that matters, it’s the love story and all the reasons why one person asks and the other says yes.

Happy 2013! My first blog post of the year and it’s a good one πŸ™‚

Remember the engagement portraits of the gorgeous Stephanie & Lee? I had the honour of photographing their amazing wedding at the end of last year.

Not only are they a simply gorgeous couple, but their family and friends were just amazing. They had a beautiful Jewish ceremony in the Kings Park ampitheatre, followed by a few portraits around Kings Park, then straight into the function centre at Frasers restaurant for some crazy dancing!

I’m pretty sure every single guest there was grinning from ear to ear and everyone was having an absolute blast. A lovely reception and some hilarious speeches followed, and then everyone danced the night away to a kick-butt band. I’ll have some images to share with you, but for now enjoy the slideshow πŸ™‚ I’ll warn you now it’s a long one – about 10 minutes, so you might have to save it until you are home from work. Then you canΒ sit back, pour a glass of wine, turn your speakers up and enjoy!

Big giant thanks to Mel for helping me out xx

Mazel Tov Steph & Lee!! Thank you so much for having me there!! xxx

I’ve known the gorgeous Rachel for a long time as she grew up next door to me in the beautiful swan valley. So when she contacted me to take her wedding photos I was absolutely thrilled! And very curious to meet the man who had stolen her heart πŸ™‚

I finally got to meet Leon on Sunday night during one of Perth’s crazy summer storms as we all met up to take some engagement photos, and we had a blast! They have so much fun energy between them, and both have a wicked cheeky smile. With the rain pouring down around us we chatted and laughed, and took some portraits.

I can’t wait until your wedding – with your crazy energy I know it’s going to be fun!

xx

I had the pleasure of assisting at a gorgeous Swan Valley wedding a couple of weeks ago with a fabulous couple and a kick-butt bridal party πŸ™‚

Here are some of my favourite images I captured of Renee & Craig in between the ceremony and reception which were both held at the beautiful Sittella winery.

For all the shoe lovers out there, here is an image from a few weeks ago. So beautifully elegant.

I LOVE the way the wind picked up Renee’s dress, which was the absolute perfect length to show off her gorgeous heels. Something to think about when choosing your shoes and your dress – if you are a Shoesday Tuesday lover make sure you can show your shoes off! πŸ™‚

I had such a blast photographing Stephanie & Lee’s engagement session. They are so much fun, so sweet with each other, and simply gorgeous! Everything that Rebecca Mercia Photography is about Β – Beautiful, Intimate & Playful Portraiture πŸ™‚

Stephanie discovered a brilliant park, with some magnificent shooting locations – so I am forever keeping it a secret so I can photograph there again πŸ™‚ After some random thunder and rain in the middle of the day we ended up with the most magnificent light! Just magic.

Enjoy the photos – I can’t wait until your wedding!!! xx

*EDIT – Stephanie’s gorgeous makeup was done by the talented Barbara Mordini πŸ™‚
