{He Asked, She Said Yes}

I recently did a photo shoot that was actually a secret proposal ūüôā I had wanted to do one of these for quite some time and was thrilled when Basil contacted me.

Isabel (his now fiance) and Basil’s sister had “gifted” Basil a couples photo shoot for his birthday (well so Isabel thought) with the help of Basil’s sister this was all set up and was in fact Basil’s idea and his gift to Isabel. Are you with me? haha

He had planned to propose to her during this photo shoot so we could capture it all. It was quite fun planning & scheming and all along Isabel had absolutely no idea (even when Basil secretly gave the ring box to my husband and then my hubby had to get it back to him right before he proposed) there was a lot of secret business happening that day.

We started out at the City Botanic Gardens (which is where Isabel wanted to have the photos).

And then we went to Victoria Gold Complex (for the proposal) which is where this lovely couple had their first date. We played dumb when Isabel had mentioned that Basil thought it might be nice to have a few photos at this spot.

Then the nerves kicked in…

Kandy & Dylan opted for a beautiful, soft, pink & grey, romantic wedding. With gorgeous views we had lots of fun taking some spectacular photos at Cabarita beach.

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.

{Best Friends} Photoshoot

When Sarah wanted to surprise her best friend with a fun photo shoot for her birthday, I asked her what they were both into, & of course, the top of the list was shoes and fashion! So I thought we could recreate a bit of a fun girly bedroom out in the forest as a fun backdrop for an awesome best friends photo shoot. I thought we could go with a whimsical, pretty look, a party/going out look and then end with a funky, rock/grunge look with the tutus and big hair.

It was so much fun to do and we were all so happy with the outcome. A massive shout out to Erika who styled the girls hair throughout the session РAlexandra Woulfe and also to Clarissa for her gorgeous tutus РVenice & Me

{Jess & Daniel} Engaged

 

This beautiful couple were just divine to photograph! It was the perfect location with a great set up along with thoughtfully put together outfits. I love every single image of theirs! We are very much looking forward to their wedding coming up in October of this year.

{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 РMayleigh 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!

Ben & Tracey {Forest Sanctuary} Sunshine Coast

We had the honour of capturing this beautiful couples day. We have known Ben for a few years so we were stoked when he asked us to be their photographers.

Their wedding was held up the sunshine coast with the ceremony & some photos at the stunning Forest Sanctuary followed by their reception at Caloundra Boat Club

The talented Bride (Tracey) wanted something a bit different and unique for her bouquet and actually make the ribbon bouquets herself!

Tracey looked so classic in her stunning dress and with her glamorous Hollywood style hair and makeup by Jessica-Rose Hair & Makeup¬†as you can see below, we couldn’t stop photographing her, she totally rocked the glamorous look.

It was a perfect day & we all had a lot of fun with this wonderful couple and their bridal party. Enjoy looking through some highlights from the day.
