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 was so wonderful to be a part of this high-school sweetheart’s wedding at Dalwood Estate Hunter Valley wedding. We started off the day in Katie and Nathan’s Newcastle NSW neighborhood before heading over to Dalwood Estate Hunter Valley wedding reception. Katie and Nathan exchanged vows among family and friends in a church ceremony shortly before making our way over to Dalwood Estate Hunter Valley wedding. Before reaching Dalwood Estate Hunter Valley wedding, however, with the stunning weather, we made a few stops along the way for bridal party photos including Hickson Street lookout and the beautiful vineyards at Dalwood Estate Hunter Valley wedding. Time flies when you’re having a ball and it wasn’t long before we all made our way back to Dalwood Estate Hunter Valley wedding where the wedding party kicked off and Katie and Nathan celebrated the night away with their loved ones.
We love a family portrait session at Norah Head Lighthouse, especially when the extended fam get involved at Norah Head Lighthouse. Such precious memories of great grandparents, grandparents, children, Aunts and Uncles at Norah Head Lighthouse that we can cherish for years and years to come at Norah Head Lighthouse.
We at Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer were absolutely in love with this family and the beautiful light we had for their family portrait the other week. We spent a beautiful afternoon at the park where, surprise surprise, most family photographers usually hang out to take breathtaking and timeless images for amazing people, such as the case with our lovely family. We at Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer were lucky enough to have the best light to capture this photogenic family. Making my job as a Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer so easy, just simply placed them in beautiful light and the portrait images speak for themselves.
The trick for Family photos is just to be yourselves.

It’s a new year! And with that comes change, much-needed change! (after the year that we just had) Most of our wedding bookings from last year are now going ahead this year, which means it will be a busy year for most wedding photographers (fingers crossed) this year.
In 2020 surprising though, we booked triple the number of family portraits than we usually do. And with that it allowed us to reflect on the importance of the year that was. Although it was a tough year for most, it was certainly a year where most humans across the globe cherished what was most important to them, and the result was often simple and right in front of them. And for us here at Coast, it was evident that the true thing that mattered the most was family and being part of a group of people where we feel most secure and loved was important. We were fortunate enough to see this through the families we have been involved with during the past 9 months. An absolute honour!
Saying this, we have now created a new and simple portrait package for everyone to take advantage of. This includes
60-minute portrait session on location | A checklist to help you prepare for your portrait session | Secure online digital gallery-ready a week after your session | Downloadable printable images

Another amazing Central Coast Wedding that we have been fortunate to capture. Sarah and Pat tied the knot in Kulnura Central Coast NSW, a gorgeous location north of Mangrove Mountain on the Central Coast NSW, with lush properties and amazing Central Coast scenery. It has been a while since we shot a church wedding and after the ceremony we ventured off to a private property, a Central Coast wedding photographer’s dream on the Central Coast NSW for wedding. We were spoilt with perfect light and after a breezy shoot, we headed over to Yarramalong Central Coast for an intimate reception with Sarah and Pat’s dearest.
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 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!
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!
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.
