So 2020 has been a bit of a write off with weddings. We have had the odd wedding here and there, which has been so exciting, however generally speaking it hasn’t been a year of weddings… however, we are LOVING that it has given us the opportunity to do more family shoots with so many of our weekends freed up that would usually be all day wedding shoots at Avoca Beach. One of which was this gorgeous family, celebrating a special 60th birthday at Avoca Beach. There was no other location suited to this fam more than Avoca Beach and the shot of Tony and Julianne with the Avoca Beach SLSC in the background means so much more than a pretty picture, as this was where they met all those years ago when they were only teens. Now, with three gorgeous sons, three beautiful daugher-in-laws and 4 amazing grandchildren, it’s safe to say that they have certainly been blessed in this lifetime.
Newborn photography is not something we usually get asked to do on the Central Coast NSW. Not because we don’t love babies but probably because when you think of newborn photography you think indoor studio with softbox lighting and adorable pink, blue and white knits. Not us though! We have no idea how to mold newborns and how to style them, but we do love natural outdoor lighting so when Grace asked us to take some photos of her, now family of three, on the Central Coast NSW we were delighted. Although this Winter hasn’t been super cold so far (knock on wood) we were obviously still really mindful of the cooler temps so we kept this shoot short and sweet but still got all the baby cluckiness we needed on the Central Coast NSW.
Another amazing Central Coast wedding from the archives to reflect on. We first met this gorgeous couple in 2016 when we shot their engagement photos at Pearl Beach Central Coast NSW and so it was like catching up with mates on their wedding day at Killcare Beach Central Coast NSW. Hannah and Clay were expecting their first child on their wedding day at Killcare Beach Central Coast NSW and its hard to believe that they now have a toddler! Time sure does fly when you’re enjoying life on the Central Coast NSW.
Ahhhh Kantara House Central Coast NSW ~ a photographer’s dream! Luckily for us it is just down the road on the Central Coast NSW. White, modern cottage style accommodation for the girls to get ready in, quaint little chapel surrounded by lush green gardens that are the perfect backdrop for newly wed photos and a reception venue available, which is large enough to throw a huge party to celebrate the night away. We shot Lauren and Luke’s Kantara House Wedding back in 2018 and since then have shot there many a times at Kantara House Central Coast NSW. Never gets old and we can’t wait to shoot back at Kantara House Central Coast NSW later this year when weddings are back and the champagne can start flowing again.
Another gorgeous Central Coast Wedding from the archives of 2018. Olivia and Jaryd married in 2018 at the Linton Garden Somersby Central Coast NSW and it was a wedding imprinted in the team’s memories. Stunning couple, high school sweet hearts, lush green gardens of Somersby Central Coast NSW, how can we forget! We are just so spoilt for choice with reblogging all the amazing Central Coast Weddings. I gotta say, looking back at all these Central Coast Weddings, has us itching to shoot again! Can not wait to get back out there and start shooting Central Coast Weddings again!
It’s been 6 years since we left Cairns and moved our lives to the Central Coast NSW. However for the first two years, we travelled back a fair few times for weddings during the Winter which we did not mind at all. Here is the wedding of Leisa and Tom that we shot back in 2015! Slightly different landscape to what we get on the Central Coast NSW however still breathtaking. Since all our weddings over the next couple of months have been postponed, we thought we’d take this chance to relook over some of the amazing couples we have been lucky enough to shoot since leaving Cairns for the Central Coast NSW in 2014. Our style has evolved on the Central Coast NSW but I think it’s safe to say, the our couples have always been and still are what makes our job so amazing!
The Forest Chapel Central Coast wedding – We absolutely love the forest chapel in Terrigal, here on the Central Coast, the perfect backdrop for Mikaela’s and Simon’s dream wedding. Though we love photographing by the beach with blue and warm colour tones, being in the middle of a forest provided the perfect scenery, letting us play with more green earthly colour tones, but more importantly their wedding ceremony venue was not too far away from the suburbs, ideal and convenient for all their wedding guests.
It was the week before Australia decided to go into complete lockdown due to recent worldly events (damn Virus) , luckily for our lovely couple, they just snuck their beautiful wedding in.
We began the day taking photographs of our beautiful bride at her home which felt to us like a beach house getaway, before heading over to their ceremony at The Forest Chapel in Terrigal, Central Coast where the nervous groom and close friends and family eagerly awaited. The lush greenery of the Forest Chapel Terrigal Central Coast offered the perfect backdrop for our lovely couple to exchange their vows, secluded from the busy urban life, being one with their nature surroundings.
After a beautiful ceremony among the trees with family and friends at The forest chapel Terrigal, the crew went for a bit of a stroll around The forest Chapel before heading up to the hills at Bouddi national park in the Central Coast. Bouddi providing another stunning backdrop for our couple, reflective of their natural and fun personalities. Once we arrived back at their reception venue (a stone’s throw away from where we were) which was set at their newly refurbished home, the party was well and truly ready to get started and we enjoyed a night of entertaining formalities, good food and great company.
We wish our beautiful wedding couple all the best in married life together!
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!
