March 24, 2015 Albums!

I love doing wedding album designs during my “off” season, hence the big stack ‘o albums in the photos! The best part, though, is getting emails like these:

Hi Brett,

Holly

I absolutely adore this red leather album for Tina and Jacob’s wedding at Willowdale Estate. It perfectly echoes the iconic red front door at the estate.

The bridal suite at Willowdale Estate is just lovely, lots of room for a big bridal party, and that iconic bathtub! The best part though, is that the windows overlook the courtyard where the wedding ceremony usually takes place. On this day, we were all looking up at the clouds and wondering if we could make it before the rain started… maybe? Oh, we were trying to push it! Everyone wanted to be outside. It was simply gorgeous – a warm early October day, with the foliage at its peak… Alas, the decision was made to go under the tent, even though it was barely sprinkling a few minutes before ceremony time. BUT! It was a good decision it turns out because it started pouring right in the middle of the ceremony, I believe Sean’s dad (also officiant) made a remark about the rain sounded like clapping for the couple, it came at just the right moment.

Thankfully Roisin and Sean chose to do a first look and take all of the photos beforehand. We started on the wooden walkway beside the Ipswich River by the estate for the first look, which is rapidly becoming my favorite photo spot at Willowdale. And I don’t think Roisin could be more stunning! Her pale rose dress was like nothing I’ve ever seen before… and just wait until Part 2 with the reception details!

Guess what? 2015 marks the TEN year anniversary of Brett Alison Photography! I can’t believe it’s been ten years, honestly. Each year has flown by, with so many unique and wonderful couples that invited me to share their day with them. I’m constantly learning – from new lighting techniques, to how to make your day run as smoothly as possible… I never know what’s around the corner and I absolutely love that. Of course, I can always count on lots of laughter, maybe some tears, lovely families and an amazing party.

Corinna and Bryan’s wedding was in 2006, when I was still getting my footing in this whole wedding photography business… It was just one of those days when everything just fell into place. Take a look!
