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!
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 absolutely love it when our past Central Coast wedding photography couples get in touch with the wonderful news of a new little family member! And it’s always such a pleasure being able to capture a little snippet of their new family life on the Central Coast NSW. We met Carly and Matt and gorgeous baby girl Edie at Soldiers Beach Central Coast NSW on a perfect Autumn afternoon in the sunshine with amazing ocean views and views of Norah Head Central Coast NSW. There was a bit of curiosity and hesitation to the strange man holding a huge camera but it was a fun afternoon with this little family on the Central Coast NSW and the photos are as natural and real as can be with a baby, and absolutely beautiful!
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!
We’d heard about Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW and seen Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW on the Bachelorette Australia when Ali was down to her top 3 guys (yes, I’ll admit I watched it in the background whilst Vic was watching!), so being a photographer, of course Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW was at the top of my list of venues to shoot at. And luckily enough, Stephanie and Michael chose us to be apart of their Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW wedding. A photographers dream wedding is to spend the entire day at one venue but to also be spoilt with choice for variety, at that’s exactly what we go at this Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW wedding!
We started off the morning with Michael and his family as well as his best mate and best man for the day before heading over to see Stephanie and her family in a gorgeous rustic/vintage styled house with beautiful chandeliers and huge draped windows. It wasn’t long until it was time to head off the outdoor ceremony amongst the lush greenery Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW has to offer. A lovely ceremony witnessed by Stephanie and Michael’s friends and family was followed by champagne, canapes and lawn games whilst the bridal party went for a walk around the Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW to take some photos of the newly weds.
Such beautiful Central Coast sunshine was followed by a balmy evening in the wedding marquee at Fernbank Farm, Central Coast NSW where the newly weds and their guests enjoyed some fun speeches, great food and wine with lively entertainment and dancing!
We were super excited to be shooting this wedding as we absolutely love exploring wedding venues that we haven’t shot at yet. And Kalinya Gardens did not disappoint at all. We met both the bride and the groom at Kalinya Gardens where these two gorgeous humans were getting ready with their loved ones. It wasn’t long until it was time for the ceremony at Kalinya Gardens, and this daytime ceremony at Kalinya Gardens was delightful in the warm Autumn sun. Shortly following the ceremony at Kalinya Gardens, we went for a relaxed stroll around Kalinya Gardens where there were so many gorgeous spots to shoot and offered so much variety – a photographers dream really! It was then time for Shay and Pri to head back to there guests on the deck on the gorgeous house on the property where we enjoyed the sunny afternoon with speeches, cake and champagne.
We were very excited to be shooting at Kangy Gardens, Central Coast for Hannah and Sam’s wedding as it was our first time shooting at this stunning location. Always a treat for this Central Coast Photographer!
Perfectly set up for a wedding, Kangy Gardens offers lush gardens, rustic styling, an undercover ceremony venue, gorgeous reception marquee and so many little hidden gems for guests and the bridal party to enjoy champagne and to take beautiful photography as well, of course!
We usually start our day with the boys, however we started with the girls first at Kangy Gardens, Central Coast NSW getting ready for the celebrations that await before heading over to Kangy Gardens, Central Coast NSW to catch up with the boys shortly before the ceremony was to commence at Kangy Gardens, Central Coast NSW. A lovely ceremony surrounded by close friends and family was enjoyed by all before guests enjoyed canapés and champagne in the gardens whilst we head off for some bridal party photos.
Such a gorgeous location meant we did not have to venture offsite for the shoot and spent the sunny afternoon at Kangy Gardens, before kicking off the party in the beautiful wedding marquee. Guests partied the night away to the live band and were also treated to a song by the bride herself!
