marieke & luke | boyd baker house wedding


It would be easy to say that this was epic.

But that wouldn’t be right. It would kind of dismiss the effort and thought that was put in. It wasn’t about scale.

It was about intimacy. It was about making everyone there feel involved. About inclusiveness. It was celebratory, yeah – but deeply personal.

I guess it should have been kind of a high pressure day for me. You know – shooting friends who are also wedding photographers. It never felt like that. It felt like I was a guest. With a camera. Charged with capturing the day for them.

This is Marieke and Luke’s wedding. Epic? Maybe. Amazing? Sure. Beautiful? No doubt.

These are incredible, Darin - 'kinda long' yes, but worth every minute of the time I spent scrolling through. Love the intimacy of these pics, especially the gorgeous shots of the kiddies, and the b+g in the field. Simply gorgeous!
