Wedding spray tan : Kat Stanley Photography

To fake tan or not to fake tan for my wedding photos, that is the question.

Recently one of my clients sent me this email: ‘Hi Kat, I read an interesting blog / Facebook question and answer on fake tanning versus natural tan for a wedding. A few photographers commented on what looks better in photos, but you are… Read More

Beauty Tips for Perfect Wedding Day Skin

As a Sydney wedding photographer, I have seen what the stress of planning a wedding can do to a bride’s, and even groom’s, skin leading up to their big day.

A romantic address for a wedding which followed a very romantic proposal. Ian originally met Grace at their workplace, and after following Grace around the office for the first few months, she finally agreed to go on a date with him. So it was only natural when Ian started to organise the proposal, months in advance, that he would choose the location of… Read More
