Looking back over the past couple of years, we have been so fortunate to shoot so many amazing families on the Central Coast NSW. Even during a world pandemic, we spent some bright sunny afternoons with happy, loving families on the Central Coast NSW, which really did solidify the fact that family really is the most important thing in the world. Here are a few snippets of some of the beautiful families we have shot on the Central Coast NSW. Coming into the cooler months, the weddings tend to ease off a little and its just the perfect time for a family portrait session. The light is softer, social outings and commitments tend to calm down and families are spending more time with one another and have more time to relax on a weekend afternoon for a family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW. Spaces are filling up quickly though, so if a family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW has been something you have been thinking about, drop us an email and lets book a family portrait session on the Central Coast NSW in! As we have all experienced, a lot can happen in a year so don’t delay it any further – precious memories captured in time are always moments that you can look back on and appreciate.
A beautiful Caves Beach Wedding on a beautiful day! We were looking forward to being their wedding photographer this amazing couple at Caves Beach last year in November. We first met Lindsay and Mitch when we shot their engagement photos at the beginning of last year and shortly after, the wedding industry was pretty much turned upside down and it was a stressful time for all vendor and couples. After a few back and forth emails on deciding whether they should move their wedding day, Lindsay and Mitch decided to keep their Caves Beach Wedding in November.
It must have been an anxious lead up to their November Caves Beach Wedding, not knowing if the day would proceed and we would all be thrown back into another massive lockdown, but the C-Bug gods were on our side and the couple enjoyed a beautiful, sunny ceremony at Caves Beach surrounded by family and friends. And after the crazy lockdowns, you could just feel the level of good vibes and happiness at this Caves Beach wedding with everyone coming together again and having their minds taken off all the stress of the months prior. It was special for Lindsay and Mitch, but also special for the guests to be out socialising and having a good time at Caves Beach.

Ah Bouddi National Park and Putty Beach – probably our favourite Central Coast location to shoot at. Being a Central Coast photographer, we are definitely not short of amazing locations to shoot at, however there is just something magical about Bouddi National Park that keeps drawing us back in… and we know you can see it too ,which is why Bouddi National Park and Putty Beach are our most requested photography locations! Loved by locals and Sydney-siders, Bouddi National Park and Putty Beach is our little hidden gem only a stone throw away from home. It is no surprise that the meaning of ‘Bouddi” in the local Aboriginal language translates to “heart” or “heart land”. If you have always dreamed of beautiful images with your loved ones at Bouddi National Park and Putty Beach, we’d love to hear from you – a great excuse for us to keep coming back too!
We at Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer were absolutely in love with this family and the beautiful light we had for their family portrait the other week. We spent a beautiful afternoon at the park where, surprise surprise, most family photographers usually hang out to take breathtaking and timeless images for amazing people, such as the case with our lovely family. We at Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer were lucky enough to have the best light to capture this photogenic family. Making my job as a Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer so easy, just simply placed them in beautiful light and the portrait images speak for themselves.
The trick for Family photos is just to be yourselves. Add that with your favourite subtle coloured clothing (which we always say avoid bold colours and large logos) with exceptional portrait lighting, which is normally early morning or late afternoon, all combined to make simple timeless images for your family to remember for years to come. As a Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer, we love travelling and finding new spots, especially places with beautiful light, and meeting amazing people to capture relaxed and candid family moments. If you and your family are keen for timeless and relaxed family photos, then we are Central Coast Wedding and Portrait Photographer aka Coast Wedding Photography are super keen to meet you. We love being behind the camera to capture your memories.

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!
Saying this, we have now created a new and simple portrait package for everyone to take advantage of. This includes
60-minute portrait session on location | A checklist to help you prepare for your portrait session | Secure online digital gallery-ready a week after your session | Downloadable printable images

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.
