Last week I had the pleasure of catching up with the gorgeous Nash for his 9 month Baby Plan photo shoot! He had the most gorgeous red cheeks and was so happy. And of course big brother Carter, couldn’t resist being in the photos as well. It is so lovely to see the bond between the two of them. I can’t believe that it will be Nash’s 1st Birthday before we know it!!


Brisbane Wedding Photographer | We’ve Been Featured – Confetti Magazine

Nicole | Weddings | Style My Celebration | 24th July 2014

A couple of months back I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful Styled Wedding Reception table by the talented Bec from Style My Celebration. She had brought together a team of wonderful people to great a glamorous Hampton’s inspired table. The scene was set on the canals of Bribie Island and even though we had a few challenges during the shoot with the crazy wind, the photos turned out beautifully! And I am excited to say that the shoot was published in the latest edition of Confetti Magazine! You’ll find the latest copy of Confetti Magazine in news agency’s now!

Brisbane Wedding Photographer | Lovelocked!

Lovelocked | Wedding Expo | Lightspace Brisbane | 20th July 2014

Yesterday I was one of the awesome vendors at Lovelocked – a wedding expo with a big fake wedding! This one was held at the awesome industrial space – Lightspace in the Valley. Lightspace is an awesome venue that gives the couples the freedom to start with a blank industrial space and turn it into something amazing. There were so many awesome vendors at the expo yesterday. So many gorgeous styled tables by some of Brisbane’s best stylists and an amazing ceremony setup for the fake wedding. One of the things that I love about Lovelocked, is that I also get to photograph a part of the day. Yesterday I photographed the bridal portraits of Steff and Pascha after they renewed their vows in a beautiful ceremony conducted by the ever wonderful Joshua Withers.  After the ceremony we headed out and about around Lightspace for around half and hour of photographs. Here are some of the gorgeous photos we took.

Of course I can’t take credit for how awesome these guys all looked, so here are the vendors that helped dress Steff and Pascha:

Dresses: When Freddy Met Lilly
Headpieces: Amahle Bridal Adornments
Hair & Makeup: Velbella
Suits: Wil Valour
Flowers: Polkadot Events
Limo: Somerton Limousines

And I just wanted to give a massive shoutout to all of the other vendors exhibiting. It was wonderful to chat to many of you and I am so thankful for all of those who gave me a hand packing up and setting up. Its a wonderful little network of wedding people we have in Brisbane and I am really happy to be part of it! And also a big thank you to Josh and Tessa for organising Lovelocked. Looking forward to the next one!
