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.
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!
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!
Chanelle and Brad’s wedding at the Springs Peat Ridge on the Central Coast started off with the girls at an Air BnB in Peats Ridge. With lots of family and children around and with the all the girls getting ready at the same time, it was organised chaos but you could feel the happy vibes and the excitement in the air. Even the roosters wanted in on the good vibes!
Not too long after we headed over to the boys who were already at the Springs Peats Ridge suiting up and greeting guests as they arrived at the Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast. The ceremony, that was held on the golf course of the Springs Peat Ridge Central Coast, was perfect. The warm afternoon sunshine and the love felt from all their guests was just beautiful at the Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast. After exchanging vows, the newly weds and their entourage took the golf buggies out for a spin on the golf course and enjoyed a couple of champagnes as the afternoon came to an end. Before long we all made our way back up to the reception at Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast where everyone went nuts for the photo booth and tunes whilst still celebrating and enjoying the formalities of the evening at Springs Peats Ridge Central Coast.
Thanks again Chanelle and Brad (and Mila) for having us!
We are back from our mid-year break and reading for the Central Coast wedding season to kick off again. But just before we do so we just had to blog Sam and Jody’s Kincumber, Central Coast wedding.
With such a chilled, laid back, boho styled wedding this Kincumber, Central Coast NSW was absolute pleasure and breeze to shoot. Everyone was just out for a good relaxed time in Kincumber, Central Coast NSW. And with the entire wedding day in the one spot in Kincumber, Central Coast we didn’t have to chase the light or worry about traffic and parking – a photographers dream!
Enjoy these earthy toned images and thank you Jody and Sam for letting us capture the magic!
We love shooting up at Somersby Central Coast. Linton Gardens Somersby is not unfamilar to us however, it was our very first time shooting at Linton Gardens Somersby during the cooler months. When we arrived at Linton Gardens Somersby it was just gorgeous seeing all the warm and golden autumn leaves giving shade to the ceremony and providing such a beautiful backdrop to Emily and Aaron’s wedding at Linton Gardens Somersby. It was a relaxed and breezy wedding with everything we needed all in the one spot from bride prep all the way through to the reception at Linton Gardens Somersby. Thanks for having us guys and as always, looking forward to our next Linton Gardens Wedding Somersby.
We were really looking forward to this wedding as it was the first time we got to shoot at the cathedral in Newcastle, NSW. We don’t shoot in Newcastle, NSW as frequently as the Central Coast, NSW so it was fun to venture up north for a change of scenery outside the Central Coast, NSW. The Autumn weather was absolutely perfect, and we got to visit some of our favourite Newcastle, NSW spots including Newcastle Ocean Baths, Caves Beach and Hickson Street Lookout. Check out Skye and Brad’s gorgeous images below!
Being a local Avoca Beach Wedding Photographer, we were thrilled to have a photoshoot photography session spending the afternoon at Avoca Beach with these two lovers and their pup! Avoca Beach late afternoon by the lagoon provided light which was pretty much perfect for portrait and wedding Photography, chilled out photo session with these two individuals that were happy to be themselves, the way we Avoca Beach wedding photographers absolutely love! Avoca Beach by the lagoon and the southern end of Avoca Beach put on a show for these 3. We can’t wait to party it up at their wedding in August! Hoping for some amazing light again, this Avoca Beach Wedding Photographer would be over the moon!
