Dan O'Day » Australian Wedding Photographer

Guess how I got into photography? About 10 years ago a good friend of mine named Megan (who was a photographer for a local newspaper) let me use her film camera for a weekend so that I could try this photography stuff out for myself. After she had a look at the pictures I took, she told me that I should really consider taking photography a little more seriously… you really think I should? I asked her… She smiled.

10 Years later my dear friend Megan informs me that she is getting married to a dashing young gent named Ross and she wanted to know if would I consider traveling up to a little town called Eumundi in Queensland to shoot her wedding. What do you say to the person that put a camera in my hands all those years ago? A big fat you bet your ass I will ! and so on October 17 last year (I am a little behind with my blogging) I did just that.

Megan works for a very cool music label called Dew-Process. Ross’s kisses are so powerful they can snap a dress strap in an instant (see below), Ross also fronts an uber cool band call Disco Nap. They have ultra cool friends who wear super sweet clothes and who sport ear to ear smiles when they clap. (I felt like I needed to make that last part rhyme)

Megan, thank you for introducing me to the world of photography and Ross thank you for introducing me to the world of your good looks in all these photo’s. You are both amazing.

I would also like to give a shout out to my bud Jodie De Rome for second shooting this beautiful beast with me. If you would like to hear more about the day go check out the amazing feature on Green Wedding Shoes (here) or you can also go grab the latest issue of Frankie Magazine where Megan and Ross’ story (and my pictures) have been featured. Every now and then a wedding comes along and leaves you speechless…

Michael Wachniak - In case you can’t see me way over here in Canada, I am currently standing and applauding. Love these, dude. You really covered the entire spectrum on this one, and I bet there isn’t even the slightest chance that these cats could love their images more than they already do now. :)
