Rachael & Mark’s Autumnal Post-Wedding Portraits

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this gorgeous post-wedding shoot from Agnes Black Photography. Agnes absolutely LOVES doing anniversary and post wedding sessions and loved it when Rachael contacted her about getting some portraits of them in their wedding attire again.

When Rachael & Marc got in touch they already knew through a friend I have a love for post wedding portraits. What is more awesome and romantic that getting back in your wedding dress and spending an entire day reminiscing and reliving those moments in an epic location with the person you devoted your life to. These guys were undeniably besotted with one another.

Rachael told me that she was pretty creative with a love of photography and Marc a tattooist! I knew I had to shoot their session! They loved their wedding images but on the day they didn’t have a great deal of time for them and they had dreamed of having some portraits in a beautiful location. I couldn’t believe my luck and I was stoked to be shooting their portraits.

We wanted to find somewhere off the beaten track that would be beautiful in the autumn colours. We found a perfect little spot that we drove to, it was a small dense woodland surrounded by open fields. These guys were perfect with one another, and although it was freezing and very windy they forgot about that, they were so in love and wrapped up within each other it was amazing.

Love In The Woods – Katie & Mathew


Today I get to share with you Katie (who has the most gorgeous purple locks – I have serious hair envy) and Mathew’s post-wedding portraits from Carla Blain Photography. As a busy mum of four, Katie talks about how lovely it was to take time out and be pampered. They were both pleased to finally have beautiful wedding images that they could treasure forever.


Our story is a bit of a crazy, busy whirlwind. I met Mathew at work 3 years ago when I began working as a staff nurse. We both work within the operating theatres at our local hospital so our eyes actually met over an open abdomen! Our first meeting was him teaching me how to mop up blood properly and him mocking my cleaning skills (which continue to this day!) For me, it was an instant attraction. He was funny, tall, sexy, tattooed and at the time, he had an awesome Mohican hair cut and a large spacer/plug in his ear. I was instantly hooked.


You’d think he would be quite an intimidating figure for the elderly patients coming into theatre, but the older ladies absolutely loved him. And so did I! Unfortunately he was completely oblivious to my attempts at flirting for quite some time. Put it this way, he had plenty of attention from the ladies in the hospital and broke quite a few hearts along the way. Being 5 years older than him, and a mother of two young children already, I never really thought we could have a future together as we had completely different life styles, but I still couldn’t get him out of my mind. I knew I wanted him. Long and messy story short….  He finally saw sense when he almost lost me and we started seeing each other in May 2013.


We went on our first holiday together in the July where we had a lot of fun and drank a LOT of pina colada…. We stayed in an awful apartment but we still had an amazing time and laughed non stop. We grew close very quickly and before we knew it, talks of the future and possible babies were in the air already, but what we didn’t know is that a little person had already been in the making since our pina colada filled holiday! Once we found out I was pregnant, we decided to fast forward our plans and  just get married.
