A couple of months back we met this lovely couple, Pip and Alex at Avoca Beach., Central Coast Visiting from Texas (but Pip being Australian) we were expecting to do a family portrait session. When we arrived at the beautiful beachfront property at Avoca Beach, Central Coast we were caught a little off guard when Pip shows us to the room with her hanging wedding dress! However having shot millions of weddings, we were very well prepared for this shoot! Pip and Alex had actually already tied the knot overseas in Texas however wanted a wedding photoshoot at Avoca Beach, Central Coast which we were all for. With Mum and Dad there to help look after the little one, we set off with Pip and Alex at Avoca Beach, Central Coast for a little afternoon stroll at Avoca Beach, Central Coast. Alex in his tux and Pip in her beautiful white gown against the Avoca Beach, Central Coast glow was magic. Not too long before sunset we quickly called Mum, Dad and baby over for a few family portraits at Avoca Beach, Central Coast – the perfect opp on this beautiful afternoon at Avoca Beach, Central Coast. Thanks again for the fun afternoon at Avoca Beach, Central Coast Alex and Pip. We will surely hit you guys up when we visit Texas – hopefully soon when lockdown is done and dusted for good.

Another amazing wedding and one that will be stamped in our memory banks for a VERY long time. Another first for us shooting a Tocal Homestead Wedding so after snooping at all their insta and FB posts, we couldn’t wait to drive up for this Tocal Homestead Wedding. And this was the last wedding we shot before lockdown 2.0 with the lockdowns starting at midnight on the night of their wedding, so we were suuuuper lucky to get this Tocal Homestead Wedding in – leaving non-lockdown life with a bang with lots of laughter, hugging and dancing with 100 odd guests at this Tocal Homestead Wedding. We started the day with the boys and what a lovely surprise that our neighbour was the brother of the groom, so instantly we knew this wedding crew was going to be a great one. Once the boys were spruced up and after a couple of whiskeys, we made our way over to the girls at Tocal Homestead wedding who were enjoying some sparkling whilst getting their makeup done and it wasn’t long before we walked over to the ceremony where the groom and guests were waiting for their beautiful bride. Under a gorgeous and big, old tree Alisha and John say their I dos and then that’s where the real fun starting for us Tocal Homestead wedding photographers! So many pretty spots and that golden winter glow was magic. Sheep, old barns, paddocks by mountains, an old heritage building – we could have spent hours upon hours at Tocal Homestead wedding but of course being Winter, sun down came too soon but the fun did not stop there for this Tocal Homestead wedding. Lots of talk about how the next morning we were going back into lockdown, so the guests did not hold back. Great food, flowing bevs and dancing was enjoyed by all at this Tocal Homestead wedding, a day Alisha and John, and their loved ones, will treasure.
It’s been a few years since we last shot at Peterson House Hunter Valley and we were excited to be back. Probably just as excited as the wedding party as when we arrived there was a very excited atmosphere. A nice change from the crazy, rush and nerves we often arrive into. The two photographers usually stick together through out the entire day helping each other out however, this time round it ended up working out with the two starting at the same time but with one at the boys and the other with the girls. Both preps on private properties not too far from Peterson House Hunter Valle and although it usually means the photographers are under the pump when they are on their own, Gemma and Mitch’s day was different. It was a super cruisy prep shoot and got all the details, portraits and candid moments we needed before heading over to the chapel at Petersons House Hunter Valley. Probably one of the best chapels for a photographer’s lens with lots of open space and natural light. The weather forecast for the day was looking mixed and it was lucky Gemma and Mitch decided to get married inside a chapel at Peterson House Hunter Valley as the rain came down just as it started. The couple exchanged vows and the guests showered the couple with bubbles instead of a petal toss, which was very fun for the children attending… and us! And just as the couple exited the chapel at Peterson House Hunter Valley, the clouds parted and we got rainbows and sunshine for the remainder of the afternoon with an epic cotton candy sky at sunset. With the early sunsets during the Winter, it wasn’t long until it was time to head back where the guests were waiting at Peterson House Hunter Valley. We knew that good food was waiting for the bridal party… and us hungry photographers after a day of shooting, but the night was not over at Peterson House Hunter Valley. Just before heartfelt speeches, cake cutting and dancing, we got some gorgeous night shots outside the Peterson House chapel in Gemma’s dad’s old classic car. What a day Gemma and Mitch hosted at Peterson House Hunter Valley – thank you for letting us be apart of the action!
