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.
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!
As much as we love our Central Coast weddings, every now and then its exciting to venture outside the Central Coast NSW to new and beautiful venues such as Gledswood Homestead & Winery. Abegail and Jeric exchanged vows in a lovely church ceremony at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church before their loved ones before heading out to Gledswood Homestead & Winery. With ideal light, we went for a stroll around the grounds of Gledswood Homestead & Winery with the bridal party and enjoyed the lovely afternoon as well as some McDonalds! As day turned to night, we headed to the reception, conveniently located at Gledswood Homestead & Winery to enjoy a night of celebrating the newly weds!
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.
When Belinda and Tom booked us for their Acre Eatery, Sydney wedding they told us to keep it a secret. That’s because friends and family were expecting an engagement party! We started the afternoon off by the harbour in Balmain Sydney for some pre-wedding photos in the sunshine. No fuss, just Belinda and Tom casually enjoying their afternoon together. We then headed over to Acre Eatery, Sydney where Belinda and Tom enjoyed drinks before Belinda quietly crept away to change and when she reentered, the looks on everyones faces was priceless! The happy couple exchanged vows at Acre Eatery, Sydney and unexpectedly became husband and wife and continued to party the night away at the Acre Eatery, Sydney. Lots of sore heads the next morning for sure!
As a Central Coast Photographer, it’s often nice to get out of the Central Coast to photograph beautiful portraits with stunning light. Although we can’t really complain as a central coast photographer of the light here, it was nice spending the afternoon taking portraits with this young family, taking priceless moments of their time together at Centennial Park in Sydney. The afternoon light and mild cool air provided us with the perfect conditions which this central coast photographer absolutely loves and definitely does not take for granted. A relaxed, natural approach along with formal group photos provided variety for their portraits. Here are a few photos we captured for them, we’re off again today to photograph another beautiful wedding here on Central Coast, what an amazing day for it making this central coast photographer ultra happy! Hope you enjoy some e of these photos…
Spent a lovely afternoon at the Northern Beaches of Cairns, pretty far from our usual Central Coast, NSW, shooting this gorgeous happy family. Granddad was there too and there is always something so special when the grandparents get involved. Not only does it make for memorable photos, it is also a reminder at how important family is across generations and how much they contribute to the lives of our kids. Central Coast, NSW.
