Just before the covid restrictions really intensified, we managed to squeeze in a family portrait session down at Pearl Beach Central Coast. This particular shoot was actually really special to us as photographers. We first met Yolande and David when we shot their engagement party down at the Grounds of Alexandria and not long after shot their lovely wedding at a private beachfront house at Pearl Beach Central Coast. Now almost two years on, they have welcomed their beautiful son, Albion, into the world and so catching up with them and their 6 month old down at Pearl Beach Central Coast was of course fitting. It was a gorgeous sunny afternoon down at Pearl Beach Central Coast, after a lot of rain so the weather gods were on our side! We revisited many spots where we took their amazing wedding photos and even got some photos of the little family in front of the beach front property that will always be a special place to them. Being fortunate enough to shoot their engagement, wedding and now little family is one of the most rewarding parts of being a photographer.
After a very warm and dry Summer, we were hit with weeks of rainfall. Kiara and James didn’t let a bit of rain dampen their spirits on their wedding day at Firescreek Winery and Gracelands Forresters Beach Central Coast NSW. Before heading over to Firescreek Winery Central Coast, we met up with Kiara and the girls. We kept the shoot indoors due to the rain however once we arrived at Firescreek Winery Central Coast and met up with James and the boys at Firescreek Winery Central Coast the rain settled to a light sprinkle and the beautiful lush gardens looked absolutely amazing for their Firescreek Winery Central Coast outdoor ceremony. After exchanging vows in front of their loved ones at Firescreek Winery Central Coast, the crew took a few shots at Firescreek Winery Central Coast before we drove off to Forresters Beach lookout. Such a stunning location , and our first time there, so thank you guys for introducing us to this little gem at Forresters Beach. The day closed in quickly, as it does when you’re having fun, and we made our way over to Gracelands Forresters Beach. Another first for us, Gracelands Forresters Beach is a lovely boutique venue where we enjoyed a cocktail style reception at Gracelands Forresters Beach. The guests danced, ate, drank and were merry on this superb day of days at Gracelands Forresters Beach.
Spent a lovely afternoon with the Elphinstone family at our fav location on the Coast ~ Bouddi National Park, Killcare Central Coast NSW.
We recently learned that in the Aboriginal language Bouddi means “heart”. Seems very appropriate that we shoot so many beautiful families and couples up here at Bouddi National Park, Killcare Central Coast NSW. Such an honour for us to capture so many pure and happy moments between family and lovers in this special spot. We surely do live in an amazing part of the world at Bouddi National Park, Killcare Central Coast NSW!
Can not believe that it’s been 18 months since this gorgeous engagement shoot at Avoca Beach Central Coast.
We love a good engagement shoot. It’s always such a fun and relaxed way to get to know the couple before the big day. If you are thinking of doing an engagement but aren’t entirely convinced… here are a few pointers that can help you decide…
- Most of us don’t often get professional photos done. Besides Instagram and Facebook, most of us have very little experience being in front of a camera so this is a great opportunity to get a feel for what it’s like. We hear a lot brides share with us their nerves about having photos done, so this is such a great way to calm those nerves.
- Wedding details – once you have your professional engagement photos there are endless things you can do with them. Some of the things we have seen our images used for include – wedding websites, engagement announcements, save the date e/cards, photo displays at the reception for guests to sign, slideshow at the reception, as well as being on display at engagement parties and bridal showers.
- You get to know the photographer – you will be spending pretty much the entire day of this day you have been planning for and dreaming about your whole life with your photographer, so it’s a bonus if you like them! It’s also a great opportunity for a hair and makeup trial.
- You’re engaged! And this is worth celebrating so why not capture this special time in your lives. Trust us, the shoots are always fun!
This one is from the archives ~ such a gorgeous Central Coast Wedding. Can not believe this Central Coast Wedding was over a year ago now. Looking forward to shooting more amazing Central Coast Weddings in 2020.
Though we have shot often at The Springs, Peats Ridge we always love going back. Laura and Liam’s wedding at The Springs, Peats Ridge was no exception, in fact it was probably one of favourite shoots there to date. The day began at Ettalong Beach, Central Coast NSW. The Mantra Ettalong Beach, was the perfect coastal setting for the bridal party to get ready for the celebrations that await.
Once we were all read, it was time to make our way over to The Springs, Peats Ridge where the beautiful ceremony of Laura and Liam took place on the greens of The Springs, Peats Ridge. Before long Laura and Liam had officially tied the knot and it was time to let our hair down and take the golf buggies for a spin around the always gorgeous golf course of The Springs, Peats Ridge. As the afternoon turned to night it was time to walk back up to the club house at The Springs, Peats Ridge, a photographers ideal day to have everything in the one spot! We celebrated Liam and Laura’s special day with delicious food and overflowing beverages before the crowd hit the dance floor at The Springs, Peats Ridge to dance the night away.
Always a pleasure to be shooting back at Glenworth Valley, Central Coast, topped off with beautiful, kind couple Tiarna and Tim. We started off the with boys at a property not too far from Glenworth Valley Weddings, where Tim was getting ready for the day ahead with the guys and his parents.
We then head over to catch up with the girls at Glenworth Valley where we did some bridal boudoir and where the girls got dressed and enjoyed some champagne. After Tiarna got into the most stunning gown, it was time to make our way to the ceremony at Glenworth Valley Weddings, where Tim and their guest were all eagerly awaiting her arrival.
After a beautiful ceremony with the lush green backdrop we spent a little bit of time strolling around Glenworth Valley weddings before the always magical Running Of The Horses at Glenworth Valley, when their 200 horses are mustered out of the horse riding yards every afternoon.
When it was time to make our way inside, the guests were ready to get the night’s celebrations underway with the formalities and of course Tiarna tearing up the dance floor, being a professional dancer and all! So much fun!
Can’t believe I haven’t blogged this gorgeous family yet! We spent a lovely afternoon at our favourite spot on the Coast – Bouddi National Park Killcare and Putty Beach Killcare. Amazing beach at Killcare, adorable little baby and such a beautiful little family at Killcare. Contact us to book in your Summer portraits at Killcare. Enjoy!
Yarramalong Wedding Central Coast – We absolutely love our Yarramalong weddings on the Central Coast. Though we love shooting by the beach, there are so many hidden gems on the Central Coast with Yarramalong being one of them! We hadn’t shot at the Hillview before so this shoot was one we were really looking forward too.
We met up with the boys at a house down the road from Hillview in Yarramalong, Central Coast. It really set the tone for the day with the boys of course enjoying their morning but chilled at the same time. We then headed over to the Hillview at Yarramalong, Central Coast to catch up with the girls who were sipping on champagne in their dressing gowns, getting their hair and makeup and just having a good ol time getting ready for the celebrations that lay ahead. Though it was an overcast day, the rain held off and the gorgeous lush greenery offered the vibrance we always seek in our images.
After a beautiful ceremony among the trees with family and friends, the crew went for a bit of a stroll in and around the grounds of the Hillview Yarramalong, Central Coast where there was so much variety in the one spot! Once we got back to the reception, the party was well and truly ready to get started and we enjoyed a night of entertaining formalities, good food and classic wedding dance floor tunes!
Such spoilt photographers we are – gorgeous couple, beautiful scenery, good vibes and lots of fun at Yarramalong, Central Coast.
Always love shooting at Kantara House Central Coast. The quaint little chapel, the big white window panes in the guest room, the lush green surrounds, and the spacious reception room and all down the road from home from Kantara House Central Coast!
We started off the day down at Long Jetty with Brenden and the boys before they travelled in style down to Kantara House Central Coast in a kombi shortly after catching up with Verity and the girls in the guest room at Kantara House Central Coast.
Once ready, looking beautiful but feeling slightly nervous and excited, we took a very short stroll over to the Kantara House Central Coast Chapel where guests and our groom were eagerly waiting.
Verity and Brenden said their I do’s within the company of their nearest and dearest at Kantara House Central Coast chapel. While the guests enjoyed canapes and champagne under the fairy lights at Kantara House Central Coast, the bridal party did not have to venture far for some photos of the newly weds after the ceremony. And as the old saying goes, times flies when you are having fun and it was time to head inside at Kantara House Central Coast to enjoy some delicious food and dance the night away at Kantara House Central Coast!
