2014 – The Year in Review

2014-07-30_0213

 

I cannot believe we are now very much in the year of 2015!

We had a wonderful time throughout 2014, meeting & photographing many new & some regular clients. Its always an honour to be a part of capturing these special moments in peoples lives.

We decided for 2014 to take on a bit less (but it still ended up being a crazy big year) but its was an adventure and we are so grateful for it! We got to do a wedding in Melbourne and also one up north at Paronella Park which was an amazing experience. Thank you so much to all of our clients and followers, we appreciate your love & support so much!

Now very much specializing & focusing on weddings and engagement sessions, I still LOVE doing maternity sessions and then the odd glamour shoot here and there. I felt like I didnt really have the time to do many shoots just for my own creativity and fun which is something I want to take the time out for this year to do. So stay tuned…. but in the meantime please enjoy looking through some of our highlights throughout 2014.

And for those interested, here is our Year in Review from 2013.

{Jared & Rivkah} Paronella Park – Mena Creek 17.4.14

Well I must start off by saying this has been one of our absolute favourite weddings to date! It was a huge honour to capture this special day, one because we already know Rivkah and her family, & two, because the location was up north at the stunning location of Paronella Park. It was a fun & wonderful adventure for us for a couple of days being up north.

These 2 are just perfection together, they have so much love and respect for one another as well as Rivkah’s (& now Jared’s) little girl.

Jared is a 4th year Infantry Captain (so is an officer) and has been serving in the army for 9 years.  Obviously being in the army as an officer he is away from home often so the love that this family share is even more special as their time together is often limited.

They both could not wipe the smiles off their faces all day, and who would blame them! It was a gorgeous day for them and all of their family & friends.

So much thought & care was put into this special day and a lot of credit goes to the bride herself for many of the creations you see, including the bouquets & personalised shoes that all the girls wore. Be sure to check out her page – Mayleigh Rose Couture.  She also made the bunting, glass window signs

The whole day I just felt like I was at a royal wedding, Rivkah certainly looked like a princess, she is a natural beauty as it is so then you put a stunning dress & some hair and makeup on and she looks spectacular! And then Jared looking handsome and “prince like” in his suit. These 2, paired with Paronella park definitely equals incredible images.

I am sure you will enjoy looking through their images as much as we enjoyed taking them!

{Barry & Alysha} Sanctuary Cove 4.4.14

Above all the awesomeness & uniquness in this wedding Alysha & Barry are both wonderful people individually AND together & it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of and capture their special day!

FROM THE BRIDE

How we met: We met while working at Ipswich city council

The proposal: Barry had put the ring around our puppy’s neck and asked me to come outside to help him with something and when I walked out he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

How wedding theme: Barry and I share a common love of Disney and it was one of the things that bought us together. So one thing led to another and we decided to incorporate Disney aspects in our wedding. We always wanted a fun and unique wedding which we ended up doing.  We wanted to make our wedding a day to remember for both us and our guests. We wanted to make it a personal and reflect us and our relationship.  All the small details came together to make it a special and beautiful day.

{Family Love}

Even though we no longer are taking on any new clients for young family shoots I just couldn’t say no to my good friend (who is also a photographer) and her gorgeous large family! We had lots of fun (& a little bit of stress haha) but lots of giggles and smiles resulting in some gorgeous photos that they can cherish forever.. I have to admit this was a very large gallery as I just couldn’t cull it down! LOL enjoy looking through some of their precious photos..

{Teejay & Tegan} 29.6.13

I fell in love with this gorgeous couple as soon as I met them. Both such lovely & loveable people 🙂

Tegan & her girls got ready at the gorgeous Ridges (Southbank) What a stunning place for photos! Reception were kind enough to let us use the function level for some beautiful photos (usually you have to have your full wedding booked there to use it but my hubby used his charm)

Their ceremony & bridal photos were held at Colmslie Beach Reserve which is a gorgeous park in Murarrie.

Teejay & Tegan wanted a classic look for their wedding with mostly black and white & a touch of blue in the girls flowers and of course Tegan’s super cute blue shoes!

I have to admit I love SO many of their images.
