Two words… absolutely stunning!
I had no doubts Anna & Rishi would enjoy a well planned and beautiful wedding day. Such are their personalities, they never seem to be fazed by anything, and everything seems to come together in a relaxed and confident way. The day was perfect and seemed to have a classic style throughout, due to Anna’s stunning dress, as well the heritage locations chosen by Anna & Rishi. The ceremony was held at St Stephen’s Cathedral, with the reception hosted at the glorious Customs House.
Anna & Rishi really are a perfect fit for each other, and are just so meant to be together. If Anna can put up with Rishi’s pet Goanna, I’m sure she can handle anything! Seriously though, congratulations Guys, we really enjoyed sharing your wedding day with you.
On the weekend Cath & I had the very great pleasure of attending Sophie & Peter’s wedding at Songbirds Mt Tamborine. After their amazing portrait shoot at Greenmount on the Gold Coast last year (check it out here), we were expecting a special day.
These guys dig each other soooo much… and it’s infectious. The guests at the wedding just love them so much, you can tell. They are admired as well for their extremely adventurous spirit, currently living in India and having traveled throughout Africa for a year in a Land Rover… or is it Landcruiser???!! a Landy anyway which is code for I want to get there and don’t get in my way!
On Saturday we had the plan to hike down to their favorite waterfall for some photos, but with time running out, we had to make one of those ‘will we or won’t we’ calls. Boy are we glad we went for it, though Cath’s legs are still suffering from the ascent back up. Peter was like a machine, with Sophie close behind in her chocolates gumboots. Next time Peter, can you carry my 15 kgs camera bag?
Here’s a little cinemagraph we made whilst we were down there…
Jacinta & George visited us last thursday evening with their friends and family, to see for the first time their gorgeous wedding images. The viewing room was buzzing with excitement!!
Here is one of my favourite images… what a stunning and classic Bride!
On New Year’s Eve Cath & I photographed the wedding of Gail and Cameron. The ceremony and reception were held at Lightspace, but in between we took a little walk around the local streets of Bowen Hills.
What we found on our adventure we will show you a little later, but for now, enjoy this classic gem of Queensland architecture…
We had an amazing time with Sophie and Peter yesterday afternoon. We headed down to Coolangatta through an hour of driving rain, and arrived just in time for the rain to stop. Sophie and Peter arrived and dived headlong into photos… man these guys are in love! From the first embrace, the first kiss, we could tell there was something amazing about their relationship.
The way they played together, I got the feeling they did not just love each other… they really liked each other and every minute together.
Here is one quick edit of Caths with the sunset.
Rain rain go away…. yep these were our words on the way to Christina and Dominic’s wedding. We had already enjoyed a few wet weddings recently, and were getting a little over the whole umbrella thing. Amazingly, whilst it rained all the way to Boonah, and all the way back to Brisbane 8 hrs later, it was a beautiful day for all of Christina & Dominic’s wedding. We spotted this tree on the Ipswich Boonah Rd. on the way to the reception, and we had to stop for some pics. The reception was held at what might be the hidden gem of reception locations in Southeast Queensland, the Kooroomba Vineyard, and Lavender Farm.
What an awesome location! Stay tuned for some more images from Kooroomba, as well as the rest of Christina & Dominic’s day.
Cath & I had the honour of being invited to Fiji, to photograph the wedding of Amanda & Frederic. We will post the wedding images very soon, but in the meantime here is an image of Amanda & Frederic taken a couple of days after the wedding, on the amazing Natadola Beach once rated the 7th most beautiful beach in the world.
It’s generally understood rain on your wedding day is good luck, but not what we really want right? Except last weekend.
Carly & Elvis were married at Midjimbil Hill www.midginbilhill.com.au, nestled between the world heritage listed Mt Warning and Nightcap National Parks. I’m sure they imagined a gloriously sunny day, but instead got something even better I think. The ceremony was forced inside, but still in an open sided timber shed, which allowed the guests both a view of the ceremony, as well as the awesome Clarry Hall Dam. Not a bad ceremony location on any day.
After the ceremony though it really started to bucket down. I looked down at the dam and it looked beautiful, and I thought… we are going to get wet. All of us. And we did. I mean drenched!!
The bridal party were amazing! They stood in the driving rain, with and without umbrellas, with a smile on their faces. To prove it was all worth it Guys, here is one shot from the Jetty.
Sometimes as wedding photographers, we do whatever it takes to get the shot… In this case it involved leaning precariously against a rickety flag poll… from on top of a rickety fence! Thanks to Ian Wilkinson for taking this great shot of me.
PS. Heres a close up of some passers by from the bottom right hand corner – seems like these guys got a kick out of it!!
