Luke & Hollie

I’m not sure how Saturday could possibly have been any more perfect for Luke & Hollie’s Manly wedding. Perfect summer skies looked down on a crowd of loving family and friends gathered together as these two lovers tied the knot before God. After a loop around the block for some portraits we headed to Beachside Dojo for the reception. This was a celebration of serious good times & joy as the images below show. Thanks Luke & Hollie - looking forward to hearing how God works in & through your lives into the future!

Ben & My Sawtell Pre-Wedding Shoot

Ben & My met in her home country of Sweden and after 6 years together have decided to tie the knot in their new home of Coffs Harbour. We’re going to have a great day celebrating in a little over a week, and got together to capture some of their love and passion on the beach in Sawtell.

Josh & Bronte's Armidale Forest Shoot

Armidale is hands down one of my favourite towns in Australia & capturing my friend Bronte (who I’ve known since she was in primary school) and her fiancé Josh in their hometown was a blast. Great seeing you again Bronte, and Josh - very cool getting to know you on our little trek. Can’t wait to capture your wedding early next year!!!

Luke & Hollie's Dorrigo pre-wedding shoot

Luke & Hollie are getting married in December in Manly.  With all of my couples I'm super keen to grab engagement shots that are different to what they'll get on their big day.  So when Luke & Hollie mentioned they'd be in my neighbourhood this week I had to grab the opportunity to head off the beaten track with them for some fun.  I was after shots that summed up their connection, while showcasing something of the gorgeous natural beauty of this area.  Here's a few of my favourites from the day.  Can't wait till December guys!!!

Prashan & Paige

When Prashan & Paige wed on the cricket pitch at her family property on Saturday, two cultures came together under the God they call on.  It was an absolutely magnificent occasion, with bucketloads of joy and emotion.  We dodged the thunderstorms through the afternoon for some shots in a couple of local spots before the reception began and the party started.  Here's a few of my faves from the day.

Benji & Ana

Benji & Ana's backyard Bonville wedding was the ultimate combination of fun & genuine commitment.  I don't know that I've seen more emotion at a wedding in my life & it was an enormous privilege to stand on the sidelines documenting it.  After the ceremony we ducked down for some pics in the forest where Benji proposed to Ana, followed by some shots in the gorgeous golden sun before hitting the reception.  So much fun guys - thanks heaps for the opportunity!

Jeremy & Lucy

It didn't rain on Saturday.  It hammered down.  And it was an outdoor ceremony!  So it was all raindrops and umbrellas and genuine laughter, celebration & commitment at Charlesworth Bay headland as we watched Jeremy & Lucy tie the knot.  And then... the sun came out!  It was a magnificent day and we got the chance to go exploring a nearby headland in the perfect afternoon light.  Here's some shots from the day - hope you enjoy them!

Jeremy & Lucy's Korora pre-wedding

Last night it bucketed down with rain & I was seriously concerned that this morning would be a wash out.  This was my one chance to catch up with Jeremy & Lucy for some shots before their big day on Saturday!  Fortunately the light was incredible - not a drop of rain, and some seriously gorgeous dramatic skies as a background to this awesomely in love couple.

Matt & Carolyn

Matt's family home at Moonee Beach was the venue for a super fun & intimate wedding on Saturday.  They said their vows under a cloudless sky, and then jumped in the kombi for a shoot in the summery haze at Charlesworth Bay.  The reception at a gorgeously decked out Park Beach Surf Club followed, with some of the funniest speeches I've heard and some serious dance floor action.  

Matt & Carolyn Gleniffer Engagement Shoot

Had a brilliant afternoon yesterday hearing a bit of Matt & Carolyn's story.  From meeting in London a few years ago they are now gearing up for their big wedding day next month.  Here's a few shots from our pre-wedding shoot in my favourite playground.
