Rustic Charm - Personal Brand Photography

We have taken photos of Crystal from Rustic Charm Interiors before so when we launched our Personal Brand Photography she jumped at the chance to have a shoot to promote her business.

She took a little convincing to get in front of the camera but she conquered her fears and we photographed her and her beautiful products.

Crystal confessed had been totally distracted from her business lately. She had been spending many precious hours every week trying to come up with amazing phone photos for her Instagram feed. She was finding it exhausting and she wasn’t enjoying social media all. After her personal branding shoot in which showcased her furniture in her own home we received this amazing feedback:

“Thank you so very much for the BEAUTIFUL photos! I’ve never seen our home and product look so gorgeous. Thank you. 

 The best part..... I have like 4 months worth of content! Instagram is my friend once again! We’ve also been working on a mini magazine and decorating service PDF and both look so professional with the photos you both took, I can’t wait to share.”

Kind words from Marlena:

A MASSIVE THANK YOU for your patience, guidance and assistance over the last few months.  We literally could not have done it without you - our day ran so smoothly because of you and you did it with a cool, calm and collected attitude to boot (even though I know we were running a bit over time throughout the day) You have both been an absolute pleasure to work with and are two people we will remember about our wedding day as having made it a wonderful and positive experience :-)

Best of 2018 Perth Weddings

2018 was another wonderful year for us, we celebrated our 13th year in business which was just amazing. We have loved being part of so many family’s lives over such a long time!

Here’s some of our favourite images from our weddings in 2018, it was so hard to choose! Thank so much to all of the clients whose work features here.

Also a HUGE thank you to all of the wonderful suppliers whose work we photograph every weekend. It was impossible to credit everyone in this blog post so contact us if you need to know who did what in any of these photos or check or Insta page where we try to credit everyone where we can. 

Being a small business owner in the wedding industry is all consuming, we both have young families and are forever thankful to our husbands who do a wonderful job at home while we work most weekends often till very late.

If you are recently engaged we would love to hear from you! Fill in our contact form here and we will send you over our e-brochure with all of our package prices.

Here’s our favourite photos of ourselves on the job taken this year:

Moments like this make being a wedding photographer very special. Sisters Renee and Elaine, married 3.5 years apart, Both each other's "maids of honour" and both sharing a tender moment with their Dad when he first saw them in their wedding dresses with Mum looking on. 

Elaine’s wedding on the left in 2014 and Renee’s on the right in 2018.

Not set up by Diane at all but she had tears in her eyes when she took the second image years after the first, realising how the moment had repeated itself without anyone even trying. How wonderful life can be when you least expect it.
