Daniel and Natasha were married in Christchurch New Zealand, then headed up to Queenstown for their honeymoon. Once we found out they were honeymooning in heaven, (aka Queenstown) Adam offered to make the short trip to Queenstown on his way back to Brisbane and do an engagement style shoot for them whilst they enjoyed their honeymoon. They happily agreed to the arrangement and plans were laid.
After scouting out some beautifully photographic locations, the three of them jumped in the car and headed off for an epic post-wedding “engagement shoot”.
Daniel and Natasha, thanks for letting Adam gate crash your honeymoon for a few hours! We can’t wait to meet your beautiful bubba next time we are in NZ:)
Kirsty and Wade decided to get married in the country, on the land they plan to build their family home on. It was the perfect choice! The rain (and I mean HEAVY rain!) did not stop their celebrations, but only served to enhance the dream like quality of their magical surrounds! The rolling hills blanketed by stormy clouds, and absolutely dreamy styling from Beautiful Weddings, complete with draped crystals, flowers, matching umbrellas for all the of guests(!!!), lace and chiffon floating in the wind served to create a truly breathtaking wedding ceremony.
The best thing about the day was the way Kirsty and Wade took everything in their stride. They were amazing sports and were a delight to photograph. Sometimes things don’t go exactly as planned on your wedding day… Just remember to embrace whatever the weather throws at you, keep smiling and have a fabulous day!
During his speech, the best man commented on how with new rain comes new beginnings, and we wish Kirsty and Wade all the best in their new beginning together as husband and wife!
The reception was held at the lovely Albert River Wines at the base of Mt Tamborine.
Ben and Nikki’s wedding was a bright and beautiful celebration! We loved the gorgeous colours they incorporated throughout the day, from their choice of flowers to their funky graphically designed seating plan and reception decor.
Over the years we have photographed all of Nikki’s siblings weddings- so it was really special for us to be a part of her day too. (And a bonus to see the whole family again + their gorgeous little new additions!:)
The day started out a little rainy, so back up plans were put into place, and the ceremony was moved indoors. But by grace, by the time we were ready to head out and take some wedding portraits of the two of them and their bridal party, the rain had made way for an incredible afternoon, complete with a dramatic sunset across the water. (The perks of photographing an island wedding when you live on the East Coast!)
Ben and Nikki were married at the beach bush haven Kingfisher Bay Resort on Frazer Island. The vibe was so chilled out and relaxed, and the guests and Ben and Nikki partied the night away! I have probably posted a couple too many images of Ben and Nikki’s first dance, but I just loved the wild colours on the dance floor!
Oh, and if you wish to, you can see their engagement photos here
You might recognise Matt and Annie from their crazy fun mountain engagement shoot a while back. They were married in the beautiful Latter-Day Saint Brisbane Australia temple on the Kangaroo Point cliffs and then headed down to Parkwood International for a ring ceremony and their reception, but not before sneaking away to the Spit to have some beautiful beach photos taken at sunset:)
Adam our main man has been running a few photography workshops and tutorials here and there, and last year (yep, I’m pretty behind in blogging) hosted a workshop in Christchurch New Zealand. His workshops generally focus on the business side of running a photography business, but now and then, have a shooting element included. This was one such occasion that included a shoot.
After a day of learning in the classroom Adam, his pupils, and the gorgeous couple hit the backyard (agh, NZ is amazing) of one of the workshop attendees for a quick shoot. Adam’s approach to photography is quite relaxed, he enjoys connecting with his subjects and interacting in a way that is fun, and fuss free in order to get the best out of his subjects. We love the results and love to help inspire other photographers that capturing real emotion is not daunting, but a fun and enjoyable experience, for both the photographer, and the people in front of the camera!
