Jim & Bec | Wedding | Little White Wedding Chapel | 23rd May 2015

On Saturday I had the pleasure of heading up to beautiful Maleny for the wedding of Jim and Bec. It was such a privilege that Bec asked me to photograph her special day. I have worked with Bec numerous times as she is a very talented wedding planner and stylist from Style My Celebration. I knew that the day was going to be relaxed, enjoyable and beautifully styled.

I started the day at Lemon Grove in Montville where both Jim and Bec where getting ready. They hired the beautiful Lemon Grove home for the weekend and invited some of their close friends to stay with them. As Jim is not a fan of having his photo taken, Jim and Bec decided to do a first look at Lemon Grove to get all of the couple and friend photographs out of the way. It was a nice change of pace for me, as I have never photographed a first look before. Bec looked absolutely stunning in her custom Susan Ogg Gown, gorgeous hair and makeup from Velbella and her gorgeous flowers from Bella Bloom Floral Designs. And Jim looked very suave in his suit.

After some photos around the home, it was off to the Little White Wedding Church at Maleny for the ceremony and reception. Jim and Bec arrived together in a beautiful vintage car, where they walked down the aisle, hand in hand to be married in front of 40 of their closest family and friends. The lovely Ketrina Coffey conducted the beautiful ceremony where Jim and Bec where married. Bec’s gorgeous nephew Arthur did a wonderful job being ring bearer and after the exchanging of vows and rings, their union was sealed with a kiss. After a quick group photograph, a few family photos, it was off to the beautiful reception area for pre-dinner drinks.

Jim and Bec wanted a really relaxed wedding day. They wanted the reception to feel like an intimate friendly dinner party with good food and wine. And they didn’t disappoint. The reception tables were beautifully styled by both Bec and Amanda from Adorn Event Hire and the delicious dessert table looked so good!! I absolutely loved the colour palette, the beautiful candle light and the gorgeous LOVE sign!! It all looked so beautiful!

Jim and Bec, thank you so much for inviting me to be part of your special day. It was so wonderful to photograph such a relaxed, enjoyable wedding. I hope you had a wonderful evening celebrating and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos!!


After the signing of the register, Bec’s brother Paul sang a beautiful rendition of “God only knows”

Maria | Boudoir | Annerley | 4th May 2015

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the gorgeous Maria for her boudoir session! Maria and her bestie came into the studio for a day of girly fun and we captured some gorgeous boudoir photographs for each of them! Maria was great in front of the camera. She had so much confidence and has embraced her body for all that it is. And she genuinely radiates happiness. It was such a pleasure to be able to capture this for Maria and I can’t wait to show you the rest!


Daniel & Tamara | Wedding | Cedar Creek Lodges | 3rd May 2015

On Sunday, I had the pleasure of heading up to Mt Tamborine for the beautiful wedding of Daniel and Tamara. We were all a little worried earlier in the week, that the weather may be less than ideal, but thankfully we had one of the most beautiful days we could of asked for and besides a little mud and the creek flowing a little more, you would never of know that Friday delivered some crazy torrential rain. Daniel and Tamara’s beautiful wedding was held at the lovely Cedar Creek Lodges at Mt Tamborine. We started the day off at the boys at the Bush Lodge. The boys were all cool calm and collected and Daniel was feeling excited about the day. Then it was off to the girls at another one of the lodges, were the gorgeous team from Velbella were just applying finishing touches to Tamara’s beautiful hair and makeup. Tamara looked absolutely stunning in her Luv Bridal gown and cathedral length view from A Veiled Affair. She had so many beautiful details. Her gorgeous garter featured lace from her Mother’s wedding dress, her something old was the beautiful brooch from her Nana on her bouquet, her something new was everything else, something borrowed and blue were her gorgeous earrings borrowed from her Mum. All of the girls were so excited to be there to help Tamara to get ready and support her throughout the day. The whole bridal party was amazing to photograph!

After we finished off the photos with the girls, it was time to head up to the ceremony area. A beautiful heartfelt ceremony was officiated by the lovely Andrea from Andrea’s Weddings. With beautiful heartfelt wedding vows, the exchanging of rings, Daniel and Tamara promised to love and commit to each other for the rest of their lives. They sealed their union with a kiss (and a high five) and celebrated with friends and family. After the signing of the register it was time for family photos before we headed off for bridal party portraits.

We stayed around the grounds at Cedar Creek Lodges initially for some bridal party portraits. Everyone was such troopers considering how wet and muddy the ground still was. These guys were all awesome, they helped Tamara when needed, they listen to my crazy game ideas (thanks James) and even watch me almost fall into a creek. The grounds at Cedar Creek create such a beautiful backdrop for bridal party portraits. Then it was off to the Handgliders Lookout just up the road for some sunset photos. And we were given such a treat with a magical sunset. It was so beautiful watching the day come to a close and incorporate such beauty into their wedding photos. Then it was back to Cedar Creek for the beautiful reception which was held right next to the creek. It was so beautiful.

Thank you so much Daniel and Tamara for inviting me to be part of your day. And thank you to Vanessa for the referral. It was such a beautiful day to be part of and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos. Enjoy your honeymoon and this little sneak peek!
