The wedding world is so full of contracts, deposits and high blood pressure that it almost takes the fun out of it.
And then I make a phone call to you. Immediately it’s apparent that you will give as much of your heart away on our wedding day as we will, and I can’t express how grateful we are that we could have you photograph our day. It’s rare these days to find someone as passionate, honest and giving as you are. It’s a gift you should be very proud of!
Not only did you capture moments that will forever be dear to us, with an amazing artistic flair and talent, you also made our day run so smoothly. We both agree that without you, our stress levels would have been much higher! You knew when to say the right things, and when to give us space. It was like having a best friend, a mother and a big sister in the right place at the right time, and it really made us both feel special.
The way you go above and beyond is amazing. I think our guardian angels were at work when we found you, and we look forward to keeping in touch in the future.
We love you Cassie Johnson, and we will be forever grateful.
John and Emily.
Who would have thought you could find such a smoking hot group of people all hanging out together in the middle of nowhere? Well I did, and I am so glad that I did!
I met Eric and Rachael a few months before their wedding. I was instantly in love with them. Not only are they easy on the eye they are so warm, funny and silly. They were so smoochy and couldn’t keep their hands off each other – my kind of people!! I knew from that one meeting that we were a match made in heaven.
Their breathtaking, elegant, country style wedding in Balranald was the perfect relaxed fit to these easygoing lovebirds. Eric and Rachael left it up to me to find a magical location, which I found along the river in and around Yanga Homstead.
The wedding day was laugh after laugh. And yes, here I must give an honourable mention to the crazy Johanna French (yup, I thought you’d like this) – you’re a nutta!! And as for the groomsmen? Well they corrupted me into being chief ‘take the piss out of Eric photographer’. This involved me trying to act serious whilst asking him to lay on the bed in awkward positions!!! We all ended up in fits of laughter.
It was a long ten hour day, which included me getting lost on the way home, but it’s worth it because I am so privileged to be entrusted with photographing such an important day. Eric, Rachael, and crew, thank you all for making this wedding day so wonderful. Thank you for the memories you have left me with. I hope you will always remember this special day as fondly as I will.
Much love Cassie

I want to tell you a little about my family. These are the most important people in my life, they are my strength, my joy and my sorrow. I have three incredible sisters and a brother, all of whom are ridiculously strong and intelligent. I, however, am that little black sheep, the classic ‘middle child’; rebellious, strong willed. I wear my heart on my sleeve and cry at almost everything good and bad. I am not embarrassed by this, my emotions are raw and honest and I choose to see the good in everyone. I am very down to earth and have this crazy way of allowing people to open their hearts to me. I believe what you give is in turn what you receive.
My husband Michael is the most amazing man. When he chose to marry me he also chose to become father to my two boys, Jesse and Brock. This is no mean feat for any person but also Jesse has Down Syndrome and wow! we have some challenging days, but together we are an amazing team.
We now also have a little girl Mileya, what a dynamic child she is, my Mum always said she hoped I got a child who was just like me as payback – that certainly happened!
Having children and especially one with special needs, has opened my eyes to a whole new world of differences, love and understanding. I now realise how important it is to have photographs. Time goes by so fast and looking back at precious memories is priceless.
My work is people centred. I love capturing looks, moments and memories. My best work comes from making people feel comfortable and special, because they are!
