This week’s Vendor Of The Week is Mint Photography. A boutique wedding and portrait studio run by the lovely Sarah, Mint Photography is based out of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and has worked for over twelve years in the photography industry. Sarah loves to capture candid natural moments and I find her photographs have such a gentle grace to them!

To get to know Sarah a little better, we quizzed her five questions in five minutes!

What is your favourite after five drink?

Would have to be a cold glass of Tyrells Vat 1 Semillon from the Hunter Valley, but if I am on holidays, its a Martini with three olives !

Your favourite weekend getaway?

Oh there are too many! Pepper’s Anchorage in Nelson Bay is gorgeous, and the suites in Milton Park, Bowral are just stunning!

Favourite restaurant?

Fu Manchu in Victoria St, Darlinghurst- contemporary Asian BYO – the Beijing dumplings are to DIE for! Get in early so you don’t miss out!

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?

Vegemite toast and a nice hot cup of tea out on the deck , but if Stephen cooks bacon and eggs or one of his omelettes I get it in bed xxx How lucky am I!!!

Your favourite wedding story?

There are so many that come to mind , but Ann and Jason’s wedding was particularly memorable- they got married on the most southern tip of the York Peninsular ( Marion Bay) in the Innes National Park in South Australia. I have never seen such beauty in a remote coastal setting. The sunsets, the shipwrecks, the dolphins…. Jason’s indigenous heritage was incorporated into the ceremony and I felt so privileged to be part of such an intimate family wedding.

Mint Photography is a member of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory. You can check out the Mint Photography website here. You see more of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory members by visiting our directory!
