As an Army medic, Luke had seen enough heart ache to fill a lifetime. After being injured on an overseas deployment, Luke returned to Australia to see the rest of his life fall apart. During a painful recovery Luke met Jess through an online dating service. After just a few dates it was clear that she had reignited his soul. Luke started to become the man that his friends and family had remembered.
Sam explained that it was popular in America for a number of reasons, but the one reason that attracted me the most was that it provided an opportunity for us to meet each other in a calm, private environment and settle our nerves before the big event. From the moment of the ceremony onwards we would be in public view, and probably very busy talking to people and enjoying ourselves, right through to the end of the night.

Decide on the type of images and style of photography that you want.
What style of shots are you looking for on your wedding day? Do you only want candid photos or something a little more formal? I find that most brides want a combination of both posed and candid shots to get a good mix of photos without spending all day smiling at a camera.
