Ladies and gentlemen, did you get engaged at Christmas or New Years? Congratulations. Particularly to anyone who managed to get a free fireworks show as part of the engagement. Time to start planning for the wedding and I know a great, friendly wedding photographer who is ready to create beautiful images of your wedding. Me.
Drop me a message from my contacts page or head over to Facebook (like me) and send a message from there.
I had the greatest pleasure on the weekend photographing Aimee and Simon’s wedding at Bangalow in the Byron Bay hinterland, and then on to their reception in Ballina. Aimee looked stunning in her wedding dress with lace accents and cap sleeves but it was their gorgeous daughter that stole the show in the church.
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.
In addition to being a wedding photographer, I also photograph a range of things for local Northern NSW businesses. This commercial photography can be anything from product photography in my studio, to location photography or other promotional photography for your businesses. I recently did a 3 day photoshoot at various locations around Ballina, Byron Bay, Lennox Head and outside Lismore for Creative Blinds. It was a great shoot that went super smoothly even though the lighting was particularly tricky.
I regularly shoot commercial images for clients who have decided to have a go at the photography themselves first to save money. The problem is that when they don’t manage to get the shot, they may have wasted significant time trying. I shot one job where the client had tried for 3 solid days to get what they were after. They called me at the last minute to step in and complete it for them. It was a studio shot that I set up, lit, photographed and post processed in under an hour. By trying to save my fee, they wasted 3 days of their own time.
If you are considering the need for some photography to help promote your business, please drop me an email or give me a call.
Kate and Craig’s wedding was held on her parent’s farm outside Clunes, near Lismore in Northern NSW. An aisle had been mown into the grass to the wedding location under an ancient fig tree. The setting was idyllic and guests had come from around the world.
Then it rained. And rained. And kept on raining. We all hoped for the weather clear up. But it didn’t and the ceremony was quickly moved to the back verandah of the house. Didn’t matter though. This was a fun wedding with great people and lots of laughs. The jacarandas were in bloom and the rain meant the grass was lush. Kate’s bouquet and hers and Craig’s shoes provided some great orange sunshine for the day. And Pimms. Lots of Pimms for the Englanders.
Another great day to be a Northern NSW wedding photographer.
I’m trialling a new way to put together my blog posts. If this isn’t working properly for you, please let me know and I’ll get it sorted out – pronto.
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.
I got to stretch as a photographer and do some work that was a bit different to normal last week. Here’s another photograph that is more than the average beach wedding photography from Northern NSW. This one taken just outside of Byron Bay.
Saturday morning was gorgeous but oh so bitterly, bitterly cold. So when I headed off to do a dawn engagement photoshoot with Julia and Phil dressed in shirt, jumper, jacket, scarf and beanie the thought crossed my mind that all those clothes were overkill. When I hopped out of the car in the 3 degree dark and Julia was also wearing a beanie, I knew I had made the right decision. It was mind numbingly cold on top of the hill over looking Byron Bay.
The sun popped up into a crystal clear cloudless sky and we got some great shots. Here’s a sneak peek.
I’ve just put together a handful of images for a reception venue in Northern NSW. Thought I may as well show them here as well. The photos are from weddings I have photographed recently in Lismore, Byron Bay, Kingscliff, Ballina and Yamba.
Earlier this year Sam and Andy had their wedding at Byron Bay and it was an absolute delight to be their wedding photographer. Their wedding made the most of beautiful Byron Bay and the surrounding hinterland.
Sam and Andy both got ready for the wedding at opposite ends of The Summerhouse and the ceremony was held on a grassy bluff on a private farm overlooking Byron Bay. We then headed into town for wedding photography at the Byron Bay lighthouse and on the beach at Wategoes. After that it was back to the Summerhouse for the reception.
I’ve just sent Sam and Andy their completed wedding album. Here’s a video slideshow showing what it looks like.
