I first met Karly when I started going to a neighboring country town high school 2008. Such a vibrant, energetic and friendly individual, I was excited to be asked to capture Karly & Jack’s special day!

The day started off at the Golden Ponds for bridal preparation. Such a busy morning with people coming and going, making sure that everyone was going to plan. Not only did I know the beautiful bride, but I also know many of the incredible bridesmaids and guests. Speaking of incredible bridesmaids, there were a total of 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen, now that’s a party! By far the largest wedding party I’ve had to direct, but knowing many of the people involved made it a lot easier and meant I could get in on the jokes and banter!

During the preparations we even had a cheeky visit from the resident pony who saw the bridal bouquets and was a little curious, thankfully no bites were taken!

While I was hanging out with the ladies, my second for the day, Wilton, was over at Baldivis Farm Stay with the lads who were going through their last minute shaving and preparation for the special day. They even found time to have a bit of a kick of the footy in between, and time to relax with some classic Emu Export.

The ceremony itself was under the wooden arbour at Baldivis Farm Stay, with the golden sun flowing through the macrame behind the couple. Flanked by their impressive wedding party and surrounded by their loved ones they said some very emotional vows. Following the ceremony, congratulations and family portraits I got to spend some time around the grounds with all 18 wedding party members! Lots of laughter, fun and Emu Export to be had as the sun slowly started to set, and lots of joking around amongst the guys.

As the last light poked through through the trees, we all entered the reception and the partying really began! Speeches, the first dance, a very personal dance for Karly by Jack and even a bit of musical chairs to decide who would retrieve the garter made for a lot of laughter! What an incredible day <3

Matilda Bay Wedding Photography | Meggan & Shane

Our day started at the Westin Hotel in the city with Meggan and her girls while my 2nd photographer Luke hung out with Shane and their guests at Matilda Bay – which included some very friendly swans! The preparation was super chill with a delicious grazing plate that one of Meg’s beautiful bridesmaids put together for her! The view out the window was breathtaking, and if I’m being honest very daunting if you stood right against the glass and looked straight down.

Food played a very important role on the day, from Meg snacking on Pringles and Cheezels during her prep, to the donut tower in place of a wedding cake! Our morning went perfectly thanks to the talented hair and makeup artists, who joined in on the laughs throughout – making the vibe for the day super fun and relaxed. Such a calming atmosphere!

After the final touches, some photos, a few more snacks and some well-earned selfies, I snuck away to get the venue ahead of them.

The plan was to do a “first look” with Meg’s Dad a little distance away from the ceremony location so that no one else could see them! Such a touching moment before the two walked down the aisle and a great idea to do with family members or your significant other before it all gets crazy.

Shane stood proudly underneath the fig tree on the riverbank, flanked by his handsome groomsmen and their 2 dogs! First, the stunning bridesmaids made their way slowly down to take their place. Followed by an emotional Meg and her beaming father. The walk from the car wasn’t short, but thankfully it was all downhill and the wait really added to the moment!

The beautiful ceremony was officiated by their friend Toby and the rings were presented by another friend, Dave. I didn’t realise until the moment Dave stood between the two of them that I knew him. I had photographed Dave’s wedding in the past so was surprised to see him standing up there!

Following the ceremony were some quick congratulations as the sun was setting and we wanted to make the most of the beautiful golden hour glow. Luke and the guests walked the short distance up to the Bayside Kitchen where the reception was being held while we took the chance to capture some wedding party portraits – including our guests of honour, their two pooches who stole the show!

Their reception was a super lowkey cocktail event, focusing on being able to mingle with their guests in between the hilarious and emotional speeches!

Such an incredible wedding to be a part of, thank you both for choosing me to be a part of it <3


“Gemma was the photographer for our wedding in April and did an amazing job! She was so great at keeping in contact in the lead up, answering my million questions and, on the wedding day, was 100% professional. I barely noticed her there but she captured some amazing shots and we couldn’t be happier. Thanks Gemma! 💕”

Swan Valley Family Photographer Singapore

Swan Valley Family Photographer
Singapore Family Holiday Photography


I recently had the pleasure of meeting and photographing the lovely Soh family who holidayed in Perth all the way from Singapore! Claire contacted me while they were still overseas to capture some family photographs in the stunning Swan Valley region where they were staying at Kellers Bed and Breakfast.

A lot of couples in particular from Singapore come to Australia for their pre-wedding photography and for family photographs, however, the Soh family were the first that had contacted me! I was so excited that a family from so far away had found me through the power of the internet and we quickly made plans to go to the beautiful Whiteman Park which is close by to where they were staying. They had plans to go to the Caversham Wildlife Park after our photoshoot so it all tied in perfectly!

We spent half an hour enjoying and exploring the stunning greenery and open spaces of Whiteman Park, in between their daughter excitedly pointing out various bugs and insects. As a country girl who grew up loving all creatures great and small I loved her enthusiasm and attention to detail for someone so young!

It was such an honour to have been chosen from all of the family photographers in Perth to capture these special memories for such a lovely family, I’m so excited to be able to share them with you and the beautiful review that they left for me down below!

“We are a family from Singapore and were going to Perth on a year-end holiday. So we were thinking of also doing an overseas family shoot while we were staying in Swan. We found Gemma from Fox and Luna Photography who proved to be very responsive right from the moment we first messaged her.

Gemma gave us plenty of support, giving us detailed directions of how to get to a particular area in Whiteman Park for our photoshoot. Before our trip, Gemma sent an e-mail to ensure that the photoshoot was still on. Even when we got to Perth, Gemma was ensuring that we knew exactly where to go that morning.

When we finally met Gemma, she came across as one with a very bubbly character. During the photoshoot, she was extremely confident of where to go and how to pose. The children had no problems understanding her and we ended up having quite a fun time during the photoshoot. We had lots of time to visit Caversham Wildlife Park after the photoshoot. We managed to receive our photos before we left Perth. It was a brainwave to have the package in digital images, so that you can just have the photoshoot and receive the digital images in a shared folder.

If you are like us, from out of town and going to be in the Perth area for a holiday and looking at a special overseas family photoshoot during the trip, we would highly recommend Gemma. It will all work out nicely with her around.

Thanks Gemma for everything!! Considering we didn’t even have a family photoshoot done in Singapore, this was extra special for us!! Everyone back at home have been singing praises of the excellently taken pictures!! We wish you every success in your passion for photography!!”
