Glenorchy // Camp Glenorchy Wedding + Earnslaw Burn Heli Flight

This wedding season has just been all round epic. O’Leah & Mikes big day on Friday was no exception!


Mike & the guys got ready at Camp Glenorchy (which is a beautiful eco friendly camp/cabin/event venue). They all had those cool novelty socks and were in great form that morning!


Poor O’Leah on the other hand had been up most of the night looking after Harrison (their 8m/o son). Though you wouldn’t know it - she looked STUNNING!! The florals got dropped off and we all collectively swooned over the beautiful bouquets. Rocking a big long veil, lace sleeveless gown and bold lip, she was a sight to behold!


We did a first look on the wharf down by the red shed. It’s quite a long way to walk out there so it builds up the tension! It was such a sweet moment before heading off to do a Heli flight!


The whole area around Glenorchy is incredible. Turquoise waters, snowy mountains and lush native bush. We flew into Earnslaw Burn, which has a big glacier, waterfalls and a icy green river running through.


We landed up near the glacier first and got some photos up close with the snow. O’Leah rocked her heels the whole time (years of dancing rock n roll in heels gave her mad skills). Next we flew down to the valley floor of soak up some dramatic mountain and waterfall scenes!


Coming back to Glenorchy on a massive high they headed to the Waterfront Reserve to get married!


It was an emotional ceremony with lots of tears and laughter. Afterwards they could soak up the sun & chill with guests before heading to Camp Glenorchy to keep the party going!


The reception was beautifully styled, dinner delicious and family & friends from overseas joined in on the livestream.

The party kicked off & with so many awesome rock n roll dancers in attendance the D floor was pumping!!


We left with big smiles after a huge but all round amazing day for the new Mr & Mrs Peterson ❤️🥂

"I don't even know where to start on how INCREDIBLE Brogan is.


One of the biggest concerns I think when booking a photographer is are you getting what they are promising? In Brogans case you are getting so, so much more. I can't fault her communication and professionalism, and she is just the nicest person to be around.


For 10 + hours she worked non stop to capture the most breath-taking photos from our day. I have no idea on where to start to pick out just a few to print they are all just so beautiful! And the amazing package that arrives on your doorstep after is just so thoughtful!


If you are on the fence about hiring don't give it another thought, it is a decision you will not regret. We will never be able to thank Brogan enough for the amazing memories she captured for us"
