Drumroll! Today I’m introducing one of our newer directory members- a fantastic photography studio run by husband and wife team Chris and Gina Blue Print Photography. Blue Print Photography capture classic, styled images of your wedding day. Images that are artistic, yet stylish and capture the intensity and style of the occasion and could almost be lifted from the pages of a fashion magazine.
To learn a little more about Blue Print Photography we asked Chris five questions in five minutes!
What is your favourite after five drink?
A Manhattan only because it reminds me of New York.
Your favourite weekend getaway?
Well I would like to say New York but it would take me the whole weekend just to get there. You might have noticed I have an obsession with this city. Second choice would be Daylesford with it’s tranquility, great food, endless photographic opportunities and my kids love the place.
La Luna in Carlton, especially their petite four desert which usually ends up with Gina and I dwelling for the crème burley. They also do a brilliant Duck and Pork crackling to die for.’is one thing I haven’t been able to master in the kitchen.
Where can we find you on a Sunday morning?
Either at Bean Counter in Fairfield for their Eggs Benedict or St.Ali in South Melbourne for their my Mexican cousin. Poached egg on corn fritter with spinach and haloumi. Now I’m hungry.
Your favourite wedding story?
I was touched deeply late last year photographing Reshmi and Kevin’s wedding. They had a Indian ceremony at the Hindu Temple that left me buzzing with all the tradition, colour and the endless photo opportunities as I documented their story. The following weekend was the Catholic ceremony at St Ignatius that also had me on fire capturing Reshmi and the girls getting ready in the morning and ending it with a Panoramic of the Melbourne Skyline, with the bridal couple, from the roof top of the Langham Hotel. It was the special connection that Reshmi and Kevin had that seemed to be increased due to what was going to happen the next day, The main reason why it was a very emotional experience was because Kevin was flying out, with the Australian Army, to Afghanistan, the next day and he wasn’t going to see Reshmi for 3 months. Truly made me feel privileged to be their on the day. It was brilliant catching up with them both, early this year, to design their Album.
