Michael & Sam.

I have always loved the romance of high school sweethearts, but until I became a wedding photographer, I never really thought finding lasting love so young was possible. After meeting countless couples in love and hearing stories of how they met… I now know that it is more than possible. It happens often and there is nothing sweeter. Michael & Sam are true high school sweethearts, having been together for almost ten years, they know each other back to front. Inside out. Sam knows when Michael needs a hug or a reassuring squeeze of the hand. Michael knows just how to make Sammy laugh so hard that she gets cute little crinkles around her nose. Michael also knows how to keep an engagement ring safe, when nervous and kayaking at the same time! But that’s a whole other story (click here to read more about their engagement and see their engagement images on Polka Dot Bride).

Michael & Sam became husband and wife under the big blue Queensland sky, surrounded by their closest friends and family. Nothing was going to impact the excitement that they were feeling on their wedding day… not even a phone call to let them know their priest was in an accident… riding a motorcycle… and now had a broken leg… hours before their ceremony was due to take place. Luckily, priests are pretty easy to find. Who would have thought… Michael & Sam, thank you so much for trusting me to document your wedding day! It truly was an honour and you will both always hold a special place in my heart.
