Documenting stories in images on the best day of your life, is something Cam of Cam Grove Photography never ceases to enjoy. There is a sense of moments in time captured when no-one was aware, the emotions of the day telling a story that is timeless across generations, that will always bring joy and the memories flooding back whenever you look at the photographs. Now that is gold!
We asked Cam of Cam Grove Photography five questions in five minutes:
What is your favourite after five drink?
It’s complicated – Negroni after 5, Pinot after 7, Whiskey Sour after 10 (no, I don’t have a drinking problem…)
Your favourite weekend getaway?
The wilds of Tasmania; another world away in a few short hours!
Woodland House – they’ve taken Jacques Reymond’s old digs and somehow made it even better.
What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
I’ll always choose sleep over breakfast on a Sunday morning, and even when I finally stumble out of bed it will just be coffee for breakfast.
Your favourite wedding story?
I recently shot an elopement along the Great Ocean Rd in the middle of Winter. Cailey and Zac had come all the way from Atlanta, Georgia just to get married on this magnificent stretch of coastline. But for a very short 5 minute ceremony, it was just the 3 of us wandering along completely deserted beaches and dunes for a few hours. It was everything you’d expect the Great Ocean Road to be in Winter – freezing, wind swept and constant rain. I found myself continually apologising about the weather. But it didn’t faze them a bit ; they just kept staring at the towering cliffs, the raging ocean and turning to each other and asking, “is this real?”. I loved how the moment was everything for them; the simplicity of the day allowed us to make time stand still long enough for them to enjoy the “now”. I think so many brides work themselves into a panic about the weather prior to the wedding, detracting from their experience of the day. Whether (no pun intended) it’s sunshine or hail, the weather is a huge personality on the day. Embrace it for all it is and focus on the moment; it won’t come again.
