Matt & Wendy – Portraits

With summer most definitely having arrived, and the day starting so early, the best time for a family portrait with kids is definitely first thing in the morning.

That’s how we found ourselves at 7:30 out at Newcastle Beach for this shoot. There was much chasing of seagulls, but eventually things calmed down and a few […]

A different Friday in Newcastle

It’s been a bit of an unusual Friday for me, and with a lack of personal posts on this blog, I thought I might fill you in on my day.

Our little boy turned one this week, so here’s a cute photo of him answering his phone to start off. Hello?

The morning kicked off with [#NewcastleCoffee](https://twitter.com/#search?q=%23newcastlecoffee) […]

Phil and Rachel’s wedding

With a fortunate change from the weather from their [engagement session](http://www.livinglightphotography.com.au/blog/2009/11/phil-and-rachels-engagement-session) Phil and Rachel got married on a beautiful sunny day up in the Blue Mountains.

I haven’t seen any couples high-five after their first kiss, nor have I had a location shoot on top of a cliff in the middle of a national park before. […]

James and Kate’s engagement session

Earlier this week, I had the privilege of shooting James and Kate’s engagement session. Their wedding will be the first thing up in January, so we got in before the silly season kicks into high gear.

They just have to step outside their door and they’re at Centennial Park in Cooks Hill, the perfect spot. […]

Nadia and David’s wedding

This was the first wedding I’ve attended where absolutely everything was perfectly on time, although maybe Nadia was a whole four minutes late walking into the ceremony. That’s some good military effort right there.

But that doesn’t mean these guys were uptight at all, in fact they were just so happy and crazy in love, it […]

Phil and Rachel’s engagement session

Most people think that the ideal photo conditions are during the day, sunny conditions and warm.

Not Phil and Rachel. How does 9 at night, in the pouring raining and freezing cold strike you? Well, they loved it.

We met up at Circular Quay and travelled between the Opera House and the Museum of Contemporary Art. […]

Megan and Davo’s wedding

Well, I’ve now shot a wedding in the my smallest country town yet: Mendooran, out in the central west of NSW. Megan and Davo got married in this [‘small, sleepy town’](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mendooran,_New_South_Wales) and it was an absolute blast.

After getting married in the local church, for the location photos, we headed out to the family farm, and […]

Sarah and Ben – family portrait

I may be biased, but I happen to think a good photo of your kids would make a great Father’s Day present. That’s what Sarah & Ben decided anyway, and they picked the first photo underneath as their favourite.

These photos are taken down by the lake at Valentine, a spot I think I’ll be […]

Nadia and David’s engagement session

After a quick coffee at Bill’s Bakery, we headed out along the Warner’s Bay esplanade for their engagement session. This lovely couple are flying high serving our country in the RAAF. Their love really does give them wings. (Okay, I’ll cut it out now.) Enjoy the photos!

Geoff and Fiona’s wedding

Sure, they got married in early August, but for Geoff and Fiona (remember their [engagement session](http://www.livinglightphotography.com.au/blog/2009/07/geoff-and-fiona-at-newcastle-beach)) it was much more a spring wedding when judged by the weather, the flowers, and the smiles on everyones faces.

Their ceremony was held at Jesmond Uniting Church, (which was absolutely packed out) and then we ducked across the road […]

Megan and Davo’s engagement session

This coming Saturday I’ll be heading a few hours out west to Mendooran (near Dubbo) to shoot Davo and Megan’s wedding. Fortunately for me, they were able to do their engagement session in Newcastle – otherwise that would have been a bit of driving.

Well, it was almost impossible to stop these two from cracking […]

Steve and Lauren’s wedding

As promised in an [earlier post](livinglightphotography.com.au/blog/2009/07/steve-and-laurens-e-session), here’s Steve and Lauren’s wedding photos.

From the start of the day, I shot Lauren at her parent’s place, while [Dave Payne](http://www.davepayne.com.au/) followed Steve as they took various forms of public transport to arrive at the ceremony, over at [Islington Baptist](http://www.isobaps.org.au/).

For our photo session we just ducked across to the […]

Say hi to Bec and Dave, who surely must be in the running for funky couple of the year. Their [engagement session](http://livinglightphotography.com.au/blog/2009/02/bec-and-daves-engagement-session) was back in February, and their wedding’s finally come around.

For photos we hit up the old Fred Ash building near Civic Park, and then headed down to the waterfront at [Honeysuckle](http://honeysuckle.net/), a new […]

Geoff and Fiona at Newcastle Beach

Geoff and Fiona are one of the most spontaneous couples I’ve yet had the pleasure of working with. You know how most people get nervous when someone points a huge camera at them? These two just laughed it off and went and had a crazy-fun time.

Both Geoff and Fi work in training with [Hunter […]

Steve and Lauren’s e-session

Their wedding has come and gone, with photos on the way, but I thought I’d share a few shots from their engagement session at King Edward Park.

Lauren’s a crazy scientist (sorry Lauren) who is working on a PhD, and Steve is training up for ministry and often does crazy shows for kids.

Hope you enjoy […]

April and Ben’s wedding

What happens when two P.E. teachers get married? Well, their wedding day is a ton-o-fun, with excitable people running all over the place.

While the ladies were getting all prettied up, the boys went and hung out at [Pippi’s](http://www.pippis.com.au/) down at Speers Point Lake Macquarie, where there were a few schooners and pool games to while […]

Chris and Rochelle’s wedding

We just happened to run into Chris and Rochelle the very day they got engaged. Shell knows Giuls from primary school and they were excited to hear that we did wedding photography. And it’s always so fun to shoot for people that you know.

It was a great day for the wedding, with weather just perfect […]

Nicky and Andrew’s wedding

I’ve known Andrew and Nicky for some years now, and I’d actually like to think I had a hand in them getting together. So, it was an absolute pleasure to shoot their wedding.

As you might guess from the photos, both Andrew and Nicky are quite musical, and we even got to hear them play […]

Emma and Brad’s wedding

Emma and Brad hail from up Port Stephens way. Em’s in the police, and Brad’s a fireman, so together they’re keeping the Tomaree peninsula safe.

This funky couple were originally intending on getting married at One Mile Beach, but the weather intervened. With *one hour* to spare, strings were pulled and the ceremony was moved […]

Jane and Rob got married in a small ceremony with just their close friends and family.

It was a total blast!

We drove around for the afternoon to check out the town, from Newcastle and Merewether Baths to outside Town Hall at night in their [stretch hummer](http://www.hunterhummers.com/).

Of course we were grabbing photos all along the way. Check […]

So Hannah and Troy were getting married on this lucky day. We were in Tea Gardens at the [Tea Gardens Hotel-Motel](http://www.teagardens-hawksnest-hotelmotel.com.au/Facilities.htm), an hour north of Newcastle and a […]

You can tell these two like to have […]

You might recall Jess and Andrew from the engagement session a few posts back. They got married on January 23rd. Fortunately they chose the Friday, because the Saturday following was the hottest day in a long time. So it was a warm day, but still pleasant and fantastic for a wedding.

When you’re smack-bang in the middle of summer, what better place to head than the beach. Bec and Dave picked Nobby’s Beach as the location for their engagement session. Maybe it was so they could go for a swim afterward!

We wandered up the path toward the breakwall, and then came back via the beach, shooting […]

Amanda and Keith’s wedding

Keith and Amanda got married on January 10th of this year. The weather was kind to us, and everyone had a great day. The centre of Newcastle really does make a great place for weddings, not just because of the photos.

We spent some time in Civic Park, where the flowers were in full bloom and […]

This is Keith and Amanda’s engagement shoot from mid-December. With all the Christmas craziness and the excitement of a baby, I haven’t gotten around to posting their shoot. With their wedding tomorrow, it’s time to get a few photos up before it’s too late.

I’ve known Keith for a few years now, and I have to […]
