September 7th 2017 couldn’t arrive quick enough for these two, it was pretty obvious from our first meeting at a cafe that Samantha and Jarrod had a beautiful connection and it showed at the engagement session! They are completely comfortable with each other, no awkwardness in their photos, just pure adoration for each other!

Samantha and Jarrod’s wedding was a real family affair, Jarrod and his groomsmen were getting ready at his parents place with all his family there, and Samantha and her bridesmaids were at Samantha’s parents place with Samantha’s family getting ready. They had Aunties, Uncles, Brothers, Sisters, Parents, Grandparents, Nieces and Nephews.

Paula Koda Sunshine Coast Celebrant wrote their ceremony which was beautifully written and special just for Samantha and Jarrod!
After the ceremony we were taken to a spot on the golf course by the event coordinator of Pelican Waters Golf Club and as we were running behind schedule we got through photos fairly quickly.
It took a little bit for Jarrod and Samantha’s Nephew to join in on the photos but once he did there was no stopping him, he wanted photos with the big boys!
Oh and I need to mention an outstanding speech from Samantha’s MOH which she surprised everyone with by turning it into a rap song, so good and very clever!

One thing I always ask my couples to do is fill in a questionnaire for me, it gives me a bit of an insight into their relationship  and I was totally blown away by some of their answers, so I am going to share one from each of theirs.
I asked Samantha ” What is one of the sweetest, most romantic things your partner has done for you?”
Her reply ” I’ll never forget our 1 year anniversary , where he came to my house dressed in a suit with a beautiful bunch of flowers and took me out for an amazing romantic dinner! “

Jarrod’s question “Describe your memories around the moment you realised your partner was more than just a friend?”
Jarrod’s reply ” I knew she was never going to be just my friend, so I stayed persistent. She has the best personality and is the most kind hearted woman I have ever met! “

These too were supposed to meet and become soul mates!

Congratulations Samantha and Jarrod and all the best for your future together and new adventures as Mr and Mrs!

When I met Rochelle and Lachlan, I couldn’t wait to shoot their love session and you’ll see why!!
While I was editing their images all I could think of is that quote from Dory on Finding Nemo

“I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy.”

These two have such a beautiful connection and with their wedding day not very far away keep your eyes out for more of them in the coming weeks!

Halee and Matt Elope | Maroochydore Botanical Gardens

It’s not always necessary to have a big huge wedding! It’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
Halee and Matt have already been together for a long time, have three gorgeous children and expecting their fourth in 2017, they were after something low key with the people that matter to them most. They spoke with Toni Collett Celebrant who wrote them a gorgeous ceremony, Toni recommended me to do their photos and that was it! No decorations, no fancy dresses or suits.
They wanted little fuss as possible and it was completely perfect for them.
There were many many laughs and tears and very relaxed.
It was a very small intimate gathering, and I just loved it.
After the ceremony and signing of the papers we did a few photos  and then Halee, Matt, their children and guests went out for lunch to celebrate!

CONGRATULATIONS  Halee and Matt!
I wish you both all the happiness for you and your growing family xxxMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical GardensMaroochydore Botanical Gardens

Sandra and Nigel’s Wedding

Hair – Evalyn Parsons Hair

Makeup – Sandra’s Friend

Ceremony – Pash and Dash Weddings

Ceremony Location – Maleny Manor

Reception – Maroochydore Surf Club

Cake – Tome

Videography – Immortalising Moments Photography and Film

When I received a message from Sandra regarding her wedding photography, it was a bit of a different request to what I would normally be asked, Sandra and Nigel were going to be married by Pash and Dash Weddings and Elopements which in their package includes Venue which you can’t go wrong with Maleny Manor, Celebrant, Photographer, Flowers, Cake etc.
They have the photographer for a set time and have their photos within the grounds at Maleny Manor. Sandra was looking for some photos of her getting ready, location photos which Sandra asked for the infamous One Tree Hill, Maleny and Reception. DONE DONE and DONE!

Sandra sounded like a fun loving, bubbly person and I thought to myself this is going to be so much fun………..and they didn’t disappoint. While reading Sandra and Nigel’s questionnaires I have never laughed so hard while reading a clients questionnaire, they are hilarious, sweet, naughty and very cheeky!

Once I done the getting ready ready photos I headed into Maleny to wait for the ceremony to be over and for Sandra, Nigel and Bridal party to arrive at One Tree Hill.

Did we have the best time YES……..with tonnes of laughter, romantic moments and some shenanigans!

During reception for those who weren’t at the ceremony Rachel from Immortalising Moments worked her magic and created a highlight film for Sandra and Nigel’s guests. It’s pretty special! Check it out and click on the link https://vimeo.com/188372218

Thankyou so much Sandra and Nigel for being amazing and choosing me to be part of such a special day
