Joanna and Giles Engagement Session, Point Cartwright
Most times when I book a wedding couple we meet over coffee and go through collections and just chat in general and I get a pretty good idea of what they like, their personalities and their relationship!
Also sometimes it isn’t possible to meet straight up and a couple books with me and we catch up at a later date. Joanna and Giles are getting married in September and we caught up for chats and coffee. We planned their engagement session for July.
Point Cartwright was the place for it to happen we had to reschedule a couple of times due to sickness but the afternoon we went out couldn’t have been more perfect, well we could have done with a little less wind. The sunset was so pretty as they are mostly during July/August!
These two enjoyed lots of laughter and snuggles trying to keep warm.

Kathy + Jarred’s Maleny Wedding
When Kathy’s email came through all I seen at first was ceremony in Maleny and reception at Brouhaha Brewery!
It’s no secret I love a good beer and when I have a Bride who also loves a beer well I think it’s a good match!
I gave Kathy a call to discuss details about their plans for the wedding I was really looking forward something a little different. Kathy and Jarred booked a rural property in Reeseville, Maleny to have their ceremony.
It is a beautiful Airbnb property with a country style house with lush gardens and green fields behind the house where the ceremony was to be held.
When I walked in to where Kathy was getting ready, she met me with a huge smile and an excited look on her face!
Jarred’s face watching his beautiful Bride walk towards him was priceless, this part of the wedding is one of my favourites as the Groom’s watch in awe of their lady’s beauty and grace as she gets closer to him.
Toni Collett Celebrant was officiating the wedding and wrote a heartwarming, authentic and humorous ceremony for Kathy and Jarred, during Jarred’s vows he became a little emotional and stumbled on getting his words out.
Once the ceremony and photos were over we drove to a couple of locations in Maleny for photos with Kathy and Jarred which included One Tree Hill and then we arrived at Brouhaha Brewery to finish of with a couple of photos inside the brewery with the big Vats. Not before Kathy and Jarred pulling their first beer for the day! Not a bad first attempt either
She dances to the songs in her head,
speaks with the rhythm of her heart,
and loves from the depths of her soul.

Tara + Rob’s Surprise Wedding at Pier33 Mooloolaba
It’s always a little bit exciting when a wedding enquiry comes through to my email, but I really love when I have enquiries for surprise weddings at an engagement party!
Tara and I had been in touch and we talked about how their surprise wedding was to announced. How was it all planned to make sure the secret wasn’t let out, who knew and who didn’t!
Once I arrived to the venue Pier33 at Mooloolaba and walked upstairs, I was blown away by Tara’s styling. The theme was tropical and immediately I felt like I was in a paradise location! We have gorgeous views of Mooloolaba wharf with all the boats on the water, tropical plants and flowers, drinks served in coconuts. It was very welcoming with a relaxing vibe and didn’t scream ‘Surprise we are getting married’!
Once all the guests had arrived, Tara disappeared for a little bit to change into her Fame and Partners gown while everyone was gathered to the deck.
After the Pierr33 housekeeping was announced Bruno Mars – Marry you came on and everyone was not really knowing what was going on, then out walked Tara with her dad!
There were cheers, clapping and tears, lots of tears!
After exchanging vows and rings Tara and Rob mingled and danced the night away with their family and friends. We didn’t have a Bride and Groom photos as they are going to honeymoon in May to Ayres Rock. Tara knows her way with a camera, she will set up the camera self timer for their shots! I am looking forward to seeing these, I’m pretty sure they will be incredible!
Although Tara styled the event herself and with the help of their families, there were a few suppliers that helped bring it all together Chocolate2chilli made the cake, Posy Co for flowers, Silvana Marin Celebrant, music by Caribbean Arts and Entertainment Company, Tara’s hair by Haras &Co, Tara’s makeup by her sister in law Kate.
Thankyou Tara and rob for booking me to photograph your special, it was a load of fun!
Congratulations again! Can’t wait to catch up soon and see your images from NT
Bek loves Callum
Sunshine Coast Engagement Session
Wild Horse Mountain, Glass House Mountains
Imagine attending a wedding expo and winning $5000 towards your wedding!
That’s what happened to Bek and Callum. Whilst attending Sunshine Coast Wedding Expo in May 2017. Bek bought her ticket online, turned up and waited for the draw for the prize and when her name was call out, the look on her face was priceless!
Now she had $5000 to spend on her wedding just for buying her ticket and being present while the prize was drawn, we had a quick chat and decided we would make a date to catch up for coffee so I could meet Callum and from there wet hit it off!
We have been keeping in touch regularly and finally got around to organising their engagement session which Bek requested we use the Pine Forest at Wild Horse Mountain location! I had no idea where this area was so after a little drive around I found this spot.
I love it! It has the Pine Forest on one side which is off a dirt road and wait for it, a pineapple farm on the opposite side, what more could you want in a location?
Once we started the session I gave Bek and Callum a couple of prompts to help them relax a little bit and create the mood we wanted for their session, they were being all romantic and connecting emotionally with each other.
I was wanting to try something a little different with them and brought some Coloured Smoke Bombs with me and it was time to light them up for a bit of a different effect, and I love what we created.
I cannot wait for their wedding day in July at Maleny Botanic Gardens. Two and a half months and counting down.
To win $5000 like Bek and Callum visit the next Sunshine Coast Wedding Expo at Maroochy RSL, Sunday 20th May 2018 from 11am to 3pm.
