Maleny Elopement

Laura and Ryan travelled from Western Australia to Elope with Pash and Dash Weddings at Maleny Manor.
Laura and Ryan booked with me to have photos after their ceremony and photos with the Pash and Dash crew we headed up to One Tree Hill, Maleny in the pouring rain. But that’s ok we had clear umbrella’s to help keep majority of everyone somewhat dry. Deluxe Kombi Service was transport between photo locations and helped with equipment and umbrellas.
Once stopped at One Tree Hill the rained had stopped enough to head into the paddock for a few photos and it was so worth it…..the light was great, rain had stopped and there was a little bit of mist around to set the scene.
Up at The Chapel in Montville for a few more photos inside the Chapel and then up to Noosa along the boardwalk and back to Noosa Boathouse for the reception.

If you are worried about rain on your wedding day don’t be. Talk to your suppliers about your concerns so we can reassure you and work around the weather.
Congratulations Laura and Ryan!
Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together

Ryan Family Session by the Lake

Ryan Family Photoshoot

Family Photo Shoot, Sunshine Coast

Sunshine Coast Photographer

Everytime I have visited my sister we have tried to line up an updated family photoshoot and it has rained every single time, so in April when I was in Newcastle the weather was perfect so we scheduled it in!
Have you ever been to Rathmines (Lake Macquarie) in NSW?
It is a beautiful little peaceful suburb where we grew up. We decided to do the photoshoot in the morning down by the lake and the conditions were perfect, kids were being playful and happy!

Chelsea and Damien’s Coolum Beach Engagement Session

Between the giggles, snuggles and sweet kisses photographing Chelsea and Damien’s engagement session was alot fun!
We hung out at First Bay, Coolum Beach which a great spot for photos!

It was pretty clear these two needed not much guidance or prompts to snuggle in and be all cute together! Chelsea and Damien are so down to earth and just go with the flow and it made them easy to photograph.

Chelsea and Damien have been together since 2015 where they met at work in Brisbane at the Gabba. They have been inseparable ever since.
At then end of 2017 Damien bended his knee to ask his gorgeous girl Chelsea to spend the rest of her days by his side. So the date was set for a day in June 2019 where they will become Husband and Wife.

I cannot wait to share their special day and to document the start of their adventure through life together!

Hayley & Mike’s Engagement Session

Hayley and Mike

Sunshine Coast

“You are my beautiful forever… a connection so deep that even an eternity doesn’t seem long enough to spend with you.” – Steve Maraboli

Photographing friends is always a lot of fun so when Hayley asked me to photograph her and Mikey for their engagement I was blown away and honoured to be asked. Hayley is also in the wedding industry and many of you may know or seen her working at various events around the Sunshine Coast with her photobooth business Ishoot Photobooth. Mikey also works with Hayley when she has a few bookings the same time.
I met with Hayley initially to discuss a theme or come up with ideas for their photoshoot when it was mentioned that Hayley would like to include their furbaby in the shoot!
Ummm Yes!!!
Then Hayley mentioned it was a kitty cat.

We started the shoot at their place with kitty then made our way over to Emu Mountain, Coolum for some fun.
The week we did this session was Hayley and Mikey’s 10 year anniversary of being together with 4 of those engaged with their wedding to come in April 2020.
I am so excited to be photographing their special day as its a wedding with a bit of uniqueness (is that even a word? Is now).

Thankyou Hayley and Mikey for sharing your life journey with me!
Bring on the wedding!

Kristina + Jackson | Noosa Love Session

Noosa Love Session
Kristina + Jackson

A long distance love

 

“The longer you have to wait for something, the more you will appreciate it when it finally arrives. The harder you have to fight for something, the more priceless it will become once you achieve it. And the more pain you have to endure on your journey, the sweeter the arrival at your destination . All good things are worth waiting for and fighting for.”

 

I had received a message through my facebook page from Jackson asking if I was available for an engagement session within the week. It had to be done this week as I later found out that Jackson’s fiancé was heading back home to USA that week.
With the date and location set and I was really looking to meeting both Jackson and Kristina.
When I arrived to Noosa carpark it was so cold and windy, the beach was rough and I was hoping the wind would settle down a little bit so we didn’t have sand flying all over us and smashing against us and my gear.
We started off in Hidden Grove and had a bit of chat about how long Kristina and Jackson had been together. Turns out they live across the world apart and met online. But here is the most amazing part THEY HAVE BEEN DATING FOR 4 YEARS!
How incredibly resilient their relationship is. Long distance relationship is hard at the best of times for short periods at a time (trust me I know I lived it for 12 months) but 4 years! Their relationship strength has shown me anything is possible.
I asked what their secret was? And their response was Yearly trips to see each other, phone calls and FaceTime calls when they can (time difference would be a bit tricky at time too).
They plan to marry 2019 in California where Jackson will reside with Kristina for a few years, then maybe come back to Australia for a bit of living here!
Wishing you both the very best guys and cannot wait to see your wedding photos xxx
