Sally & Steven – Engagement Session 8.3.20

What a great time meeting Sally and Steven who’s wedding I’m shooting in Newcastle in June! This is such a nice way to get to know each other a little better before the wedding day. It’s so important to have a connection with your wedding photographer – if you’re not well suited and not comfortable with them – it’s going to impact your wedding photos. This is why I’ve chosen to offer them free of charge in all my wedding packages. Not only that – these guys ended up with about 160 beautiful images!

Trevor & Roslyn – Japanese Gardens East Gosford: 22.2.20

What a beautiful setting to get married in. Trev and Ros tied the knot at the stunning Japanese Gardens East Gosford surrounded by their family and friends. The grandchildren were all involved which was lovely to see. It was a short and sweet wedding for me with coverage from just prior the to the ceremony and long enough for family photos and photos of the newly married couple around the grounds. We had a bit of drizzle during the day but nothing that stopped us from staying outside. These two I’m sure celebrated the night away at The Coast Bar in Gosford. 

Thank you for having me capture this special day in your lives and enjoy the sneak peek below!

Rachael’s Family Session: 15.2.20

How special to book a photo session for your Nan! It was a beautiful sunny Saturday afternoon at the Secret Gardens in Berkeley Vale – what a lovely backdrop to their photos. These guys were quite the characters and it was easy to get so many kinds of shots including lots of muck about’s which I love!

Family Photo Session for Mark, Belinda and the family: Bateau Bay

My first session for my ‘February is Family Month Special’ which is a half price special I’m offering for existing clients. Belinda and Mark were married almost 3 years ago and have since then had their gorgeous baby boy Reid. Belinda’s sisters Stacey and Natalie who were also in the bridal party have also had babies in that time and as my sessions allow for the extended family, everyone had the opportunity to have their own family photographed and the best thing – it only cost them 60 something bucks per family! Now that’s a win! How adorable are these kids!! Ma and Pa (yes that’s what they call em), were there for photos with the whole family.

Family Photo Session – Bateau Bay: 13.1.20

Before the troops flew home, Kyle contacted me to see if I was available within a few days to photograph the whole family as it’s been 12 years since they’ve been all together! What a lovely afternoon at Bateau Bay Beach. With three high energy gorgeous girls – the session was done within 40 minutes – you’ve got to work fast with kids! Lovely to meet this family and capture these precious moments.

Family Photo Session – Norah Head 11.1.20

A great afternoon photographing Grandma and Grandad with their kids and grandkids. What a nice thing to surprise Mum with for her 70th birthday! She didn’t know what was going on till she got to the location and saw me with the camera. Even the kids managed to keep it a secret.

Archie and Kylie – Norah Head Lighthouse:18.12.19

It’s possible to put together a wedding in no time at all and here is proof. Hats off to Kylie and Archie who put together such a beautiful day at the Norah Head Lighthouse. I was in the right place at the right time when Tracy introduced me to Kylie and Archie after I’d finished shooting my last wedding there on the 7th of December. They were looking to book the grounds and set the date for only 11 days later! With a morning ceremony, the cottage for accomodation, the marquee right out front for the reception, everything was absolutely lovely and so convenient. No time restrictions and I’ve since spoken to Kylie who tells me everyone had a wonderful time and it was great for family who don’t see each other too often to catch up. 

It was wonderful to see these two marry after 20 years together, made official by Celebrant Glenda Davison along with their wonderful children and be surrounded by their family and friends. 

Congratulations Kylie and Archie – enjoy your slideshow!

Chris and Curess – Norah Head Lighthouse: 7.12.19

How special to renew your wedding vows after ten years married. Chris and Curess married at the Shelly Beach Golf Club on the 5th of December 2009. Their renewal was as much for their children as it was them. They didn’t have a professional photographer on their wedding day, however they did have a friend who took a few photos but this was their chance to have professional photos, and finally be able to have some to hang up at home. Celebrant Edward Taylor married them ten years ago and of he officiated again yesterday. Chris and Curess, thank you for inviting me to photograph your commitment to one another. It was so nice to spend this time with you and the family and I hope you all had a great night celebrating. 

Happy 10 years! 

Enjoy your sneak peek!

Mitchell and Erin – The Stables of Somersby: 23.11.19

hashtag eringetsmitched! Yes they did! They got hitched at the picturesque ‘The Stables of Somersby’. I was so looking forward to shooting this wedding, once I met these two I knew it was going to be a stress free day with lots of fun and laughs. I was also looking forward to shooting at this amazing venue. I checked it earlier in the week and met the lovely Louise the owner who showed me around. Her and her husband Andrew have transformed their property into the most wonderful wedding venue – so quiet and relaxing. A real country feel. There is also a huge loft above the barn and this is where Erin and the girls got ready.

Erin and Mitch met when she was working at a newsagency and Mitch would come in to get his paper (or was it to secretly see Erin!?!). He asked her out for coffee, at first it wasn’t a great time – she was busy with studies, but he persisted and now look at them – a house together, with their much loved fur babies (check out the donut wall with their photo!), now married – about to embark on another journey. 

I truly had the best day with these guys and their bridal party – everyone was so happy and fun loving. The speeches from the parents were so heartfelt and the speech from Best Man Jarrod had everyone in stitches! Mitch finished off his speech with a poem and all I can remember from it was something about their dogs and a bone – everyone there knows what I’m talking about! 

Congratulations Burtons – I hope you absolutely love the slideshow I’ve put together for you and Erin, I hope you’ve had a brilliant 30th birthday today. 

PS – No I didn’t ask the groomsmen to hold hands – they took that upon themselves ;).

Alex and Chantelle – Kangy Gardens: 16.11.19

Back to the tunnel of love! My new name for the tunnel near Kangy Gardens. Speaking of Kangy Gardens – this was the location Chantelle and Alex decided to get married yesterday. There was definitely a party vibe with this wedding, a ‘few’ drinkies, lots of dancing, shenanigans, and lawn games. Chantelle looked absolutely stunning in a gown I just adore ever since seeing it at Final Touch Bridal.

These two met at Little Kickers and Chantelle’s impression was that he was a great Dad! Fast forward some years later and here they were – getting married with good friends, family and most importantly their much loved kids by their side. It was so sweet to hear Chantelle’s daughter Georgia’s speech, who said just how happy she was for her Mum that she had found Alex and got the happiness she always wanted.  This is what weddings are all about. 

Thanks Alex and Chantelle for having me capture this day for you two. Enjoy the slideshow. 

No screenshots please – images will be uploaded to my facebook page for sharing and tagging.
