Brooke & Tavis, two very talented photographers went to Iceland to elope.  Their friend, Ryan Muirhead, officiated and a small collection of friends (and one particularly adorable tourist) witnessed the ceremony high on a cliff top looking out over the ocean. Getting the opportunity to be part of such an intimate wedding in my favorite part of the world was beyond anything I could imagine and so thankful for these two dears I now call friends.

The next day we ventured out in the rain for a few more photos. I’ll be sharing them soon. xo

Rock N Roll Bride featured this wedding this week. Check out the post here.

Jean & Matthew celebrated their wedding day at Flatbush Farms, a dark little bar & restaurant in Brooklyn. It turned into a rainy day and they had planned for dinner under the stars in the backyard, but instead turned into a intimate dinner across the bar & restaurant areas inside. Thanks to Accuweather, we were able to time the rain clouds so they were still able to have their ceremony outside, with just a little sprinkling of drops. Emily Asher’s Garden Party played amazing jazz all night long.

Harold MartinPOW documentary

sammblake_haroldmartin_pow_thailand_deathrailway_009

Over the past two years I have been working on an ongoing project about my dear friend Harold Martin, who is now 97 years old. He was a prisoner of war during World War 2, captured by the Japanese in the Fall of Singapore, and spent the next two years in POW camps building the Burma Thai Death railway along with 60,000 other allied soldiers, of which 12,399 died as a direct result of working on the railway. Harold has an epic tale of survival.

I have been documenting Harold and his story now for two years, both video and stills, filming in Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore, San Francisco and at Harold’s home in Albany, Australia. Along the way, I have recorded his stories with the intention of compiling a documentary about his experience about being a POW and his travels going back to Myanmar and Thailand.

Two years ago, I traveled to Myanmar (Burma) with Harold, my father and a few of his close friends. Myanmar finally opened up to tourism and it was his first opportunity to go back to find the gravesites of his fallen mates. It was an amazing experience to be alongside Harold and you can see more of project from then here.

Harold’s latest request was to travel to Thailand to attend the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) day service at Hell Fire Pass in Kanchanaburi. My dad and our dear friend Murray, decided it would be another great adventure. I decided to join in too to continue the project. In the middle of already a very hectic travel schedule in April, traveling to the United Arab Emirates and Mexico for work, I managed to get a week in Thailand. I surprised Harold at the hotel in Bangkok with a knock on his door, he didn’t know I was coming. We kept it a secret incase it did not work out. That moment will forever be a favorite. I was a little nervous I may have given him a heart attack from the surprise, but instead he pinched me to see if I was really there. He didn’t really believe it :)

From Bangkok we headed to Kanchanaburi, which is close to where the Thailand side of the railway line had started.  We visited and walked many different parts of the railway line, went to the bridge over the River Kwai and we attended the ANZAC day services at Hell Fire Pass and at the cemetery in Kanchanaburi. Harold was a VIP guest along with two other POW survivors who had traveled over from Australia. We also visited one of the original Japanese trains that carted the POW’s on the 5 day journey from Singapore up into Thailand. Each carriage had 34 men crammed into them, the carriage door was closed and it had no ventilation. There were no toilets and many of the men were very sick and many died along the way.  I have been working on this project for two years now and it was not until seeing inside one of these carriages that it all really hit me. The reality of it all.

Isabella & AdrianFremantle, Australia

sammblake_wedding_fremantle_australia_061
I headed back to Australia last year to document Isabella & Adrian’s sweet wedding in Fremantle, Western Australia. They lived directly across from my old office in Fremantle that I spent many years working from. I decided to make the trip over and photograph their wedding based on this fact alone as I knew it was going to be a great day spending time in my old beloved Fremantle. After the church service at St Thomas’s in Claremont, we headed to The Attic for coffee before continuing to roam the streets of Fremantle before heading to the Maritime Museum on the wharf to continue the celebrations.

Sarah & DavidMallorca, Spain

mallorca_spain_wedding_photographer_sammblake_046
Last August took me to Mallorca, one of the Balearic Islands off Spain to document Sarah & David’s destination wedding. Their close friends & family came down from England to celebrate and they hired out a beautiful house in the countryside near Inca, where the evening celebrations took place. Sarah & David had their ceremony in up in the little village of Fornalutx at a little boutique hotel called Can Verdera. David is an amazing wedding photographer, so it was an honor he asked me to photograph his wedding. Not a terrifying experience at all ;)

Daniela & RemoAbbazia di Fossanova, Latina, Italy

sammblake_destinationwedding_italy_081

Last September I headed over to Italy to document Daniela & Remo’s wedding day near their home town of Terracina, just a few hours south of Rome. The wedding took place at Abbazia di Fossanova, an amazing Cistercian monastery built around 1135.

My dear friend Kelly Tunney was in the neighborhood (England) the week prior so with a little tempting with a few days in Venice and surviving the crazy drive out of Rome to Terracina (mostly thanks to her great navigating skills), she helped second shoot this wedding with me.  The hospitality that Daniela & Remo showed us was amazing.. we have never been so well looked after (and fed!) in our lives. I had to go on a 3 day juice detox when I got back to New York to recover :)

I have photographed many Italian weddings in Australia.. but this took my idea of what an Italian wedding was to a whole new level… a 7 course dinner, many many many toasts, a crazy amount of dancing and a toilet paper covered get away car :)

Sareh Nouri - New York - 2015 Spring Collection

Yesterday I headed to a sky suite at the London Hotel in Manhattan to document behind the scenes for the Sareh Nouri 2015 Spring Collection on behalf of Burnett’s Boards.  The New York International Bridal Week took place over the weekend, where designers from around the world come to NYC to showcase their latest designs. It was a fun hour photographing these pretty models.

Amber & CorrinPerth, Australia

carnival_wedding_perth_sammblakephotographer_049

The best part of my job is that I get to step into peoples lives for a day, wander around and document all that I see for them. I get see how people celebrate weddings all over the world. I am an anthropologist at heart. I love studying humankind with my camera.

This wedding was back on my home turf in Perth, Western Australia. Now that I am living in New York, looking through all these photographs again and remembering what it feels to walk out into a big wide open field with menacing storm clouds and breath in all that fresh country again, makes me miss home so very much.

Amber & Corrin celebrated their wedding day surrounding themselves in all the things they love.. loved ones, animals, food, music and bright colors, along with a stormy Australian sky. They had a little baby animal petting farm for all the guests to play & hang out with and a fairy floss station & pizzas on demand throughout the evening. It was a pretty amazing day to be part of :)

This wedding was featured recently on Hello May – you can check out the post here.

Quincy and Steffani married in a tiny little dark bar (Manhattan Inn, Greenpoint) in Brooklyn only 4 blocks from my apartment (first time ever I walked to and from a wedding :). They celebrated the day surrounded by all their loved ones and documenting the evening for them was a complete joy.. getting to do what I love the most, photographing people surrounded by their nearest and dearest. ♥

The Future of Contemporary PhotographyPublished in NYPH Journal

new york photo festival

 
Today I received a copy of the NYPH Journal – The Future of Contemporary Photography by New York Photo Festival. One of my photographs has been published in the journal, a photograph of my dear friend Harold Martin, who’s story of being a POW survivor I have been documenting for the past few years. I made a short documentary about this back in 2012, which is still a work in progress into turning into a larger documentary. I entered the short documentary into the New York Photo Awards back in 2012 and became a top 5 finalist in the multimedia category. This journal features the work of the photographers who were finalists in the New York Photo Awards.

When I was back in Australia in December, I walked into a news agency and flicked through
some magazines. To my surprise, I saw one of my weddings published in the beautiful
Fete Magazine – Summer 2013 issue. I knew they were going to publish this wedding.
I just forgot all about it and was by chance I picked up that exact issue.

This feature is on Arlene & Jake’s lovely backyard picnic wedding I photographed in Perth,
Australia last February. Their ceremony and reception took place all on a tennis
court. Picnic baskets full of bread and cheese and the yummiest pizza was served all
evening. a perfect night!  I even got two images of me published on the last page
(I’m the one in the blue dress holding the super 8 camera and my canon camera ;)

Thanks to the talented Aimee Claire for shooting with me that day.

On a chilly day in early November, Cat & Chris married at the beautiful the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral on Mulberry Street in Manhattan. We then headed to the Metropolitan Building, an old warehouse in Long Island City, that has been converted into a multi level photo studio. I fell in love with the windows instantly and the hundreds of chairs they had scattered throughout the building. This venue is less then a 10 minute drive from my apartment which is an added bonus :) As much as I love to travel for weddings, its also super awesome when its a quick cab ride home :)  Looking forward to exploring the Metropolitan Building more in the future!

Iceland

 

In July I travled to Iceland with my boyfriend. A first real holiday I have been on in years with no agenda but to completely disconnect from the world for a week.

We hired a campervan and with a cooler box of food and a map, with no plan, we drove aimlessly and got lost in the best possible ways. We hiked along the cliffs at two in the morning, watched puffins build nests, bathed in hot springs, ate a lot of cheese and bread, built our own cairn on top of a mountain that felt like we were on the moon, walked through an endless black earth and discovered remote little cabins in the middle of nowhere that we dreamt about moving to.

We barely spoke to another soul our entire time there. The best adventure I have ever been on. Excited I am going back this September to photograph a wedding and explore this beautiful country a lot more.

Merry & MatthewManhattan, New York

 

Merry and Matthew married on a very chilly day earlier in the year. With freezing temperatures outside, I started documenting their day at the Soho Grand in Manhattan. They had separate rooms on separate levels so no accidentally bumping into each other and then a very sweet reunion took place in the bar in front of their close friends and family. I loved photographing their reactions to seeing each other all dressed up. We went and took some pictures on the High Line (a park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side) and around the meatpacking district. We then headed to Del Posto, an Italian restaurant for their ceremony and celebrations in the restaurant’s basement. The speeches were beautiful and the dancing was crazy.. a perfect night! :)
