Dan O'Day » Australian Wedding Photographer

Masthead header


When you get asked by two wedding photographers to shoot their wedding the following occurs – 1. you accept their offer quite confidently – 2. your secretly sh*t your pants – 3.you make sure you didn’t actually sh*t your pants and 4 you do your best to do a smashing job of it (or else right your career is over right?). Well this is what happened to me a few months ago when Marissa and Alex asked me to shoot their wedding. If it wasn’t enough that they are wedding photographers (you can see their work here) They are also founders of “From The Owl” – A killer wedding registry and online gift store and (with others) One Fine Day wedding fairs.

Thankfully they are so hooked up and hard working that they had many vendors and themselves working super hard to make my job super easy… I hope you enjoy their story as much as I enjoyed shooting it. Also, big shout out to James (Thommo) Thomson from All Grown Up Weddings for second shooting this one for me.
