The Wedding Countdown – 5 Months

Darren and Teagen

Time is ticking on and the wedding countdown is in full swing as Darren and Teagen prepare for their January wedding. With just 5 months to go, they are locking in some big ticket items such as their reception venue, dress, and photographer.

I’m sworn to secrecy on the details of the dress, so all I can say is that I received a text message from Teags proclaiming “I actually just found THE dress!!!” Note: I did not add a single exclamation mark more – Teagen really was excited about finding the dress of her dreams. Place a stunning bride in a stunning dress and it’s just all too amazing…

Darren and Teagen also chatted about what they wanted from their wedding photos and came up with the following:

  • Natural/candid photos over staged/posed images
  • A photographer they could connect with, and who understood what memories D+T wanted to capture
  • A photographer who was quality/classy with a proven track record and good reputation

Enter Alcorn Images. This husband and wife duo have been taking photos and video for several years, and happen to be friends of the bride and groom. Teagen says of Alcorn Images, “I’ve worked with Breony before for music photos and adored her. She is so comfortable to work with, and seems to effortlessly capture what I’m after. They’ve got a quirky eye to them, capturing natural moments that most would miss.”

Brisbane recently held the EKKA which provided the perfect backdrop for a fun-filled engagement shoot. These sessions can be a fantastic way to “trial” your chosen photographer and see the fit between vendor and couple. So, after Alcorn Images followed Daz and Teags around on a sunny winter’s day, it appears this partnership is in fact a very good fit!

Ryan and Breony from Alcorn Images said they loved “the whole feel of this shoot… talk about natural chemistry…  Darren and Teagen are a beautiful couple, very genuine and fun!”. The bride and groom in turn “were encouraged to just ‘be ourselves’ and this happened to the point that I forgot they were even there most of the time.” Definitely a positive experience for both parties and a bunch of beautiful and fun images to prove it.

Lastly I thought I’d leave you with something a little different in the form of a video. Although Teagen was aware that Ryan and Breony were filming during their engagement shoot, she didn’t know that Darren had arranged a voice-over, once again, making her “fall more in love with him every moment”. Ahh, such sweet sweet love. Good on you little brother!
