Thats a Wrap...

Well that was quick.

It seems like only a few short months ago I was climbing up and down the frozen mountains of Japan with Amelia in early 2015. On returning in mid February its been non stop with weddings, commercial shoots, a couple of exhibitions plus a move to my new studio in Hermit Park. I also bagged a couple of silver awards at the APPA's which puts me within striking distance of gaining my "Master of Photography" accreditation with the AIPP. 

My new studio is going to be awesome :-). Its a converted church - tons of room to shoot portraits with a gorgeous high ceiling enabling me to put my lights up where I want them. After the holiday break in late January I'll be posting some portrait package specials to kick off 2016 and the new studio.

Anyway here is a selection of some favorite wedding images from this year. Thank you so much to all my wonderful clients who trust in my work. Every booking means a great deal to me.

Thank you Thank you THANK YOU...

Vintage Weddings

I've been asked by a potential client to put together some examples of vintage wedding images. Thought I'd add to my productivity and also throw these up on my blog for all to see. Vintage in weddings is really just a matter of styling with props, lots of lace and maybe a couple of old cars. My processing in lightroom for these images uses number of colour adjustments to enhance the vintage feel. Wedding styles are constantly evolving and changing - hipster, retro, indie, classic, glamour etc. The one classic style that always seems to work is vintage.

Ready - Set - Go

Its been quite a break for me from weddings and this blog but things are all about to change. My wedding season usually runs from Easter to November so I'm about to hit the starting line for 2015. Of course my summer break has hardly been a break at all with lots of commercial and architecture shoots to keep me busy and a wonderful recharge trip to Japan in the new year. So as usual at this time I start to look through past images and plan my year ahead.

Here is a small sample with more to come soon...

Weddings on Magnetic Island QLD 2014

Well its that time of year again when the mercury starts to push my comfort zone and I get to pack away my wedding shoes for a couple of months. So time to take stock, reflect on the year that was and make plans for new and exciting changes ahead. Below is a collection of my favorite images from some of the weddings that I had the pleasure an honour to photograph on Magnetic Island in 2014. 
Sadly though my home away from home namely Lotus House on the beach at Horseshoe Bay has stopped taking bookings for wedding receptions - all fingers crossed that this situation will change in the near future.
And a massive thank you, thank you, thank you to all the couples that I met along the way.
