Brad is an amazing talent as a fellow wedding photographer, so he and Kelly knew they only wanted the best to capture their wedding day… so they came to us of course;) (Haha I kid, I kid!). They are an awesome couple and it was great to meet them and capture their wedding day for them.
It’s always fun and the ultimate compliment to photograph another “wedding photographer’s” wedding. Having a couple who is comfortable around massive cameras always makes for an epic shoot! They were keen to have beautiful photographs, so they made the time to make it happen.
Brad and Kelly were married at the beautiful Fig Tree Restaurant in the Byron Bay hinterland. We then ducked out around Byron Bay, down to the lighthouse, and quick stopover at the beach, and then back to the Fig Tree for their intimate reception.
(I’m a sucker for those party photos at the reception! These guys had so much fun and I had a great time photographing them doing so.)
Late last year we had a bit of a near tragedy happen within our family. Our 3yr old took a bit of a dive out of a second story window and fell 3.6mtrs (head first) onto a concrete landing. It was scary and it was horrible, but God blessed our boy and although he was bruised badly (and a bit shaken up), he was OK.
It was a bit of a reality check. Needless to say, the weeks following the accident, there was ALOT of family time, lots of cuddles and lots of prayers of thanks giving. Beautiful friends and family showered us with love and we just felt so blessed that we still had our little boy with us.
A couple of weeks later, we had a client shoot postpone on the most glorious afternoon ever! We decided to take the opportunity to go and play with our boys. Master 3 reminded us of our promise to take some photos of him flying… I reminded him that his face was still a bit bruised, and asked if he wanted to wait until his bruise had gone away. (He had been quite self conscious of it). He smiled and said “No, cause I can show people the photos and say “That’s my bruise!”” Haha such a boy!
We love building fun things out of cardboard together to play with (can’t beat a cardboard box for entertainment right?!). Our little guy has been right into “biplanes” for a while, so we decided to get crafty and make one together. He was so over-the-moon with our creation, and so very chuffed with his painting and sticking efforts, and said we needed to take a photo of him “flying in his plane”.
So our impromptu photoshoot turned out so fun! We pretty much role-played the whole time, which I think comes across in our little guys expressions. Bub is kinda just like “what are we doing?” Which we found very funny and we enjoyed coming up with captions for the photos to tell a story when we viewed them at home. For days after the shoot, master 3 was telling everyone he came in contact with that he flew his plane, all by himself (he was surprised and extremely excited when he saw the photos, and we could see his brain ticking over as he tried to make sense of the “flying” photos:)
Hmmmm we just can’t seem to get this thing started…
So we were not quite dressed for a family photo… but I thought I would share anyway;) I love the expression on bubs face- I’m pretty sure he thinks we are all mad!
I might as well add a couple of “behind the scenes” photos too:) Oh how we love these boys!
Life is such an amazing thing… sometimes caught up doing our own little thing, it is easy to forget how hard and fleeting life can be. So today being valentines day, I thought I would share a little love story as it were… Well to me, sacrificing your hair to create awareness, raise money and give moral support to those struggling is a pretty awesome love story I think!
Over the weekend we were blessed with the opportunity to photograph an old friend (well a new friend for Adam) to celebrate the gift of her daddy’s curls before she takes the plunge next month to shave her head (to the scalp – eip!) as part of the “Worlds Greatest Shave” to help raise money for the Leukaemia foundation.
Chelsea’s Dad passed away from cancer at the young age of 29… Leaving her mother a widow to two small boys with a baby girl (Chelsea) due to be born. Two weeks after his passing, this incredible young woman came into the world.
When I heard that Chelsea was “shaving for a cure” I was really touched, we chatted about it, and she mentioned her main motivation for doing the Worlds Greatest Shave was the struggles with ill health and cancer she has witnessed some of her dear friends going through, as well as her family’s history and a bit of inspiration from a friend shaving last year.
So, after a crazy suggestion, a couple of quick chats, and a postponed client shoot- Chelsea jumped a flight to come to Brisbane to be photographed. We hope you feel inspired by this beautiful young woman too! Finding a cure isn’t cheap, so (pretty please!) help Chelsea reach her donation goal. Even $5 will help!
We photographed a few weddings in Fiji last year, first up, we had the pleasure of photographing Lee and Vanessas wedding at the Warwick Hotel Fiji. Despite the weather being a little wild, the Island truly put on it’s amazing colours for their wedding celebration! Thanks so much for taking me along guys, I had such a great time documenting your wedding celebrations!
The night before the wedding, Lee and Vanessa enjoyed dinner as they watched the fire lighting ceremonies and caught up with their friends and family. It was an amazing night. Fiji is such a magical place to host a wedding:)
The wedding morning started with a romantic morning breakfast out in a beautiful little hut on the ocean, with just the couple and a waiter catering to their every need… (and a very brief little visit from me of course;) (Look closely, I’m being waved at!)
Then it was time to get glamorous for the big event of the day!
Vanessa looked incredible! (Channelling the Hollywood Scarlets of the 40s ).
The vibe down on the beach was jovial. Lee was excited and happily chilling with his guests and waiting for his bride to arrive!
The weather was quite wild and Vanessa’s amazing hair style took quite a beating. After initially being a little disappointed, a quick break to have her hair restyled by her talented hairstylist (it is very handy having a hair stylist as a best friend!) and she was ready once again to brave the storm. Luckily it only rained briefly and then we were blessed with a dramatic, stormy sunset!
The reception was so much fun! Lots of laughter, good food and dancing!
