Stu and Jinene had a fabulous ceremony for their beach side wedding at Yamba – and just as the documents were being signed, the heavens opened. It poured, we all were soaked to the bone – and we laughed. And laughed.
Despite the weather change everyone had a great time with wedding photography in the rain. Some guests turned up to the black tie formal reception in casual clothes, others dried off with the aid of towels and hair dryers – others just came wet. Great fun and a wedding that Yamba will talk about for a long time to come.
I’m expecting a bunch of wedding photography albums to be delivered to the studio in the next week or so. Including one from Nicolette and Brett’s beach wedding. Always exciting to get new albums in for wonderful clients.
I’m about to completely redo my photography price lists from scratch. Here’s your chance to tell me what you want and how much you want to pay for it. Weddings, portraits, anything – please let me know what you would expect to receive and how much you would expect to pay. Just send me a message from the contacts page or via Facebook.
From Wategoes Beach to The Lighthouse and on the the Surf Club, Emma and Dylan’s wedding at Byron Bay took full advantage of everything Australia’s most easterly town has to offer. Including brilliant sunshine. The weather in the Byron Bay area was terrible in the weeks leading up to their wedding but the day was superb.
Again, it was an absolute pleasure being a Byron Bay wedding photographer. I also got to cruise around in the limo with them and not worry about parking – hooray. We had great time and I think it shows in their wedding photos.
Just revisiting a few photos I took in London, England and liked the look of this image of Westminster Abbey. Traditionally Royal weddings in England take place here. I wonder if a Royal couple getting married in Northern NSW would choose the churches of Lismore, the hinterland hills behind Byron Bay or the Ballina beaches for their wedding.
Last weekend I had the massive honour of being the wedding photographer for Amanda and James. In the past I have photographed numerous wedding and portraits for a great deal of their family and friends so, for me, it was kind of a reunion of sorts seeing many people who had been in front of my lens in the past.
Their ceremony was held at St Carthages Cathedral in Lismore and the reception at the Ballina RSL. All day the weather was a bit of a threat with it being very windy and rain didn’t look too far away. That turned out to be great for me. While taking wedding photographs on the beach at Ballina the sky turned wild up towards Byron Bay making for a spectacular back drop.
I love photographing weddings in Yamba. It’s a stunning location and the people involved with the wedding are always super cool and relaxed. They are stylish celebrations of love. Always a pleasure to be a Yamba wedding photographer.
This was exactly the case for Leanna and Brent’s beachside wedding on the headland by the lighthouse. Stylish and fun and laid back. Here are a couple of photos from their wedding:
Love this wedding photo. When I took it I imagined it being printed HUGE as a massive wall canvas. Stunning.
If you would like to see more photos from this Yamba wedding, head over to my Facebook page here.
Special mention must be made of Leanna’s Dad’s speech. He spoke fully from the heart, that highlighted the special bond between father and daughter. Also noting how Brent coming into the family was just the often quoted gaining of a son, but he also had a new ‘great mate’. It was highly emotional with tears flowing freely and one of the best father of the bride speeches, ever.
I had great fun earlier this week doing a wedding photography photoshoot at various Northern NSW locations from Lismore, to the Byron Bay hinterland and down to Lennox Head and Ballina.
The images aren’t from a real wedding but for use as stock photography so the shoot was nice and relaxed as we didn’t need to worry about things like getting the dress dirty. And dirty it was at the end of the shoot. Filthy. Amazing how much sand can collect in a wedding dress.
Here’s one of the wedding photos from the photoshoot.
Just archiving some wedding photography and it’s a been a while since I showed one off. Here’s a pic from Kate and Brett’s wedding. It was a fabulous seaside wedding of two magnificent people on a brilliant day in dazzling sunshine. Wedding was at Dunes on Shelley Beach and reception at Ballina Beach Resort. Photo was taken by the beach at Lennox Head.
All weddings are different. Some weddings are beautifully styled. Some are in gorgeous locations. Some are budget weddings others have no expense spared. Some weddings are delightfully romantic. Some are quirky. Some weddings have themes. They best weddings all have one thing in common.
The best weddings are all about the bride and groom doing just what they want on their wedding day.
When it came to Rochelle and Ben’s wedding at Mantra on Salt in Kingscliff, I knew it was going to be one of the best weddings from the moment I met them. Here is a couple who are know what they want and are going places. They also know how to have a good time. I knew it was going to be a fun wedding. And it was. Lots of grins and lots of laughs. It was great.
Their wedding album is done and looks great too. Here’s a slideshow of their album layouts. Hope you like looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed being their wedding photographer.
