This shoot, although was done last year, was just too good not to share! This was actually the second engagement shoot we did for these guys at Norah Head. Not because the first shoot wasn’t amazing, because it was, but it was super late start last time due to Lindsay’s hair and makeup so we didn’t have a lot of light left, plus it rained half way through the shoot! So when the team got together and decided they wanted to do some photography workshops to gear up for a busy 2021, Lindsay and Mitch were the first couple to spring to mind. On the contrary, we had amazing sunshine at Norah Head plus Norah Head isn’t somewhere we have shot very often so it was a great afternoon of creativity and fun at Norah Head. We will be blogging their beautiful Caves Beach wedding in the coming weeks too. Enjoy this Norah Head Photography!
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!

Another gorgeous family portrait session we did outside the Central Coast NSW recently when we decided to go on a little road trip down south to Wollongong. Although we adore the Central Coast NSW, we LOVE the gorgeous scenery outside the Central Coast NSW, and we definitely got lucky with this beautiful Wollongong family – and location! We think a few more road trips outside the Central Coast NSW are on the horizon for this family photographer…
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.
It’s been a VERY long time since we last blogged a wedding, so we are so excited to be blogging this beauty at Bidja Estate Central Coast. First time shooting at Bidja Estate Central Coast and you all know how much we absolutely LOVE shooting a new venues and especially after such a long wedding dry spell (thanks Covid)! Not only were we super spoilt to be shooting at Bidja Estate Central Coast, we were so happy to be back shooting weddings with such a gorgeous couple – Keira and Darren. Like many couples this year, these two had a few date changes and of course a few special people were unable to attend, however none of this dampened their spirits on their special day at Bidja Estate Central Coast and these two celebrated this special day and enjoyed every single minute of it! And were just thrilled to be apart of it at Bidja Estate Central Coast.
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 amazing Central Coast wedding from the archives to reflect on. We first met this gorgeous couple in 2016 when we shot their engagement photos at Pearl Beach Central Coast NSW and so it was like catching up with mates on their wedding day at Killcare Beach Central Coast NSW. Hannah and Clay were expecting their first child on their wedding day at Killcare Beach Central Coast NSW and its hard to believe that they now have a toddler! Time sure does fly when you’re enjoying life 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!
Though we have shot often at The Springs, Peats Ridge we always love going back. Laura and Liam’s wedding at The Springs, Peats Ridge was no exception, in fact it was probably one of favourite shoots there to date. The day began at Ettalong Beach, Central Coast NSW. The Mantra Ettalong Beach, was the perfect coastal setting for the bridal party to get ready for the celebrations that await.
Once we were all read, it was time to make our way over to The Springs, Peats Ridge where the beautiful ceremony of Laura and Liam took place on the greens of The Springs, Peats Ridge. Before long Laura and Liam had officially tied the knot and it was time to let our hair down and take the golf buggies for a spin around the always gorgeous golf course of The Springs, Peats Ridge. As the afternoon turned to night it was time to walk back up to the club house at The Springs, Peats Ridge, a photographers ideal day to have everything in the one spot! We celebrated Liam and Laura’s special day with delicious food and overflowing beverages before the crowd hit the dance floor at The Springs, Peats Ridge to dance the night away.
