“You’re the best Nicole, we absolutely love working with you.” – Nayeli I LOVE a classic portrait in the studio, simple, no props, well one prop, The bubble machine.

I fell in Love with Australia. I was lucky enough to document a wedding full of love, and able to do a bit of sight seeing too. The Russel Hotel is a small boutique hotel in the historic Rocks located in Circular Quay. There is a small winding hallway, and if you get thirsty, there is a classy pub on the first level.
