Doesn’t seem very long ago when we did Kaycee and Jay’s engagement photos on the Central Coast NSW but it was more than two years ago and a year now since their Hunter Valley wedding. Their wedding was definitely one to remember with a crazy fun reception party at the Hunter Valley NSW. But before all of that, we met Kaycee and Jay on this gorgeous Central Coast NSW day and spent a lovely afternoon admiring the amazing scenery the Central Coast NSW has to offer. If you have been thinking about getting engagement photos done on the Central Coast NSW, now is the perfect time . Most of us Central Coast wedding photographers have a lot of spare time on our hands at the moment, with plenty on weekends free which NEVER happens for Central Coast wedding photographers!

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.
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!
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!
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!
