Gerard and Katie

Katie and Gerard chose to elope- only instead of keeping it a complete secret, they invited their immediate families to join them.

Katie looked so incredible in her lace sleeved gown and her stunning hair and make-up by The Powder Room.

After their marriage at the registry office, we took a stroll together to the Brisbane botanical gardens for some gorgeous couple photos before heading back to their reception dinner in the spunky Blackbird Restaurants Champagne Room on Eagle Street Pier.

(PS we were stoked to find a gorgeous bus stop “sprinkled with fun”! The slogan just complimented Katie and Gerards happy personalities so well Open-mouthed smile)

Gerard + Katie | Engaged

We loved Gerard and Katies engagement shoot and Wedding! I’m itching to post some photos from their wedding on our blog- but thought I had better show off their engagement photos tooSmile 

Even though we battled against overcast weather in the forest and an accident on the Bruce highway that clogged up the mountain roads (craaazy traffic jam!!!). We watched the sun come out and then set on the way up the hill, but we still managed to capture a little of the sky’s fading colour in amongst a couple of wedding parties on the famous One Tree Hill in Maleny haha:)

It was such a lovely afternoon and Gerard and Katie were such good sports, and amongst all the drama still had gorgeous smiles on their faces!

I can sing a rainbow!

So not too long ago, this spunky couple came in and met with us, and decided to book us in for a couples shoot at the beach.

The day of their photo shoot was a little bit cloudy and a little but sunny. What we didn’t expect, is that a rainbow would come to visit, for, well, pretty much the entire shoot! Normally if you are crazy lucky, a rainbow will touch down for a couple of minutes and you have to run like mad people to catch it in a photo or two- not this time! Looking at the time the photos were shot- between the first photo and last rainbow photo was a whopping 45 minutes (happy dance!)

(I love that this crazy silhouette is now hanging as a beautiful piece of art in their homeOpen-mouthed smile)

Ricardo and Emma

It was such pleasure to photograph Ricardo and Emmas wedding. We photographed Emma’s sister Sarah’s wedding quite a few years back now, so it was nice to catch up with the family again, and be trusted to document such an important family occasion again!

Charlie and Emma

Charlie and Emma decided to rent a house for the week of their wedding. Living in North Queensland, and travelling to the Gold Coast for the celebrations, renting a home to spend time with loved ones was such a great decision! There was so much laughter from upstairs where the girls were getting ready, and downstairs where the lads were scrubbing up, and it made for such beautiful photographs of their morning wedding preparations, and I’m sure such great memories of time spend together.

Charlie had wanted to go bare foot to the wedding (considering it was 40degrees, it would not have been a bad idea!) but Emma didn’t like the idea… so Charlie decided to get creative hahah!

Yes these are the shoes he wore ALLLL day, and Emma was none the wiser until it was revealed at the Wedding reception. I don’t even know how he kept these on straight all day- that is some mad skills!!!

Peep toes!!! So funny! Chatting about this later, Emma said she thought it was weird when Adam directed Charlie to put his legs out straight in front of him. Once she found out about the souless shoes, it all made sense;)

Their reception was held at the Southport Yacht Club.
