Confetti…(& a little planning)

Nikki and Matt held their wedding at the amazing Wandin Valley in the Hunter Valley, a great place for family meeting from all over the country; Perth to Melbourne and even overseas.

Although it was a small thing in the scheme of things, I was excited about them having a big confetti throw… which fewer and […]

Hunter Valley Wedding – Alana and Jamie

I’m a big fan of weddings in winter, which will be no surprise if you follow us on Facebook. People cuddle together, the light is soft and warm, and with the warmest winter on record all that is needed is shawls for the ladies.:)

Alana and Jamie’s wedding was just magical… they came to us on […]

Newcastle Rendezvous – Jess and Josh

One of the advantages of a photo session prior to the wedding is to get rid of all those nerves about being photographed… but Jess and Josh didn’t even need any time for that.

They came on down from Tamworth, and it was just a bit of fun wandering around the CBD and finding spots with […]

Jess and Andrew’s engagement session

I’m back, and kicking off the first photos for the year with Jess and Andrew’s engagement session. This is a bit late, as we just had time to get these in before the wedding.

We headed down to King Edward Park and had fun gallivanting around the trees and flowers. We even discovered the wetlands – […]

Bec and Dave’s engagement session

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 down at the lake

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 […]

Lee and Will’s wedding

Well, we here are bringing our last set of wedding photos for the year. So better way to go out with a bang than to be at Lee and Will’s wedding.

It was held on top of the cliffs at Clovelly, near Coogee. Lee and her bridesmaids drove up to the park in the funky […]

Brooke and Geoff’s wedding

Brooke and Geoff got married on October 18. We’re back in Newcastle this time, and it’s always a beautiful day for a wedding. That’s why we love this town!

Brooke and Geoff definitely love it too, and during the day we got to see not too few of the sites. They got married at St […]

Ellen and Sam get married

After weddings in Port Macquarie and Newcastle, the next location to head to was… [Gunnedah](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunnedah)!
It certainly felt like a typical laid back country town on the Saturday we were there for Ellen and Sam’s wedding.

So just how relaxed was it? Well, Ellen’s shoes somehow went missing. For most brides this would be a tragedy, but […]

Sarah and Rhys’s wedding

What a glorious time of year to get married! The flowers were out in full bloom, and it was a perfectly warm spring day, perfect for Rhys and Sarah’s wedding.

They were married at the Baptist Tabernacle in Newcastle, and then had afternoon tea in Civic park with all their friends and family. Then it […]

Kate and Adam get married

Well, Kate and Adam have said ‘I will’ to each other, on a sunny September afternoon up in Port Macquarie. We had their engagement session not that long ago, and now they’re married!

From the Baptist church we headed out for photos to the beautiful Shelley Beach and then rushed to the Tacking Point Lighthouse as […]

Lee and Will carefully climb the cliffs of Clovelly

Sorry everyone for that terrible post title. I’d put in ‘clutzily’ as well to add the final finishing touch, but that would only be true for me.

Lee, Will and I headed out to the cliffs at Clovelly (near Coogee), where their wedding and reception will be. It’s a stunning spot, with the deep blue sky […]

Kate and Adam brighten up Civic Park

We originally planned to head to Newcastle Baths for these photos with Kate and Adam, but I couldn’t find the baths under all the water, so we went to Civic Park instead.

Spring is definitely on the way, with the poppies blooming in the park to give us some colour. Kate and Adam added even more […]

Brooke and Geoff brave the weather at Merewether Baths

As if winter needed to go out with a bang, the weekend we had this engagement photo session saw some pretty lousy weather. Although we were at Merewether Baths, you almost couldn’t see them for the waves crashing over and the rain pouring down.

Brooke and Geoff were great sports and braved the wind and rain […]

Sensitive Freight at the Bar on the Hill

This last Wednesday night, I went along to see Sensitive Freight, a band with some friends and my brother. They played at the [Bar on the Hill](http://www.unu.org.au/DisplayPage.asp?pageid=1323), a great little venue at the University of Newcastle.

As I always have my camera in tow, I’ve been nominated their “official” photographer :), and so you get […]

Stunning wedding cars

At one of our recent weddings, the wedding car was “Mary-Lou” from [Classic Chevy Hire Cars](http://www.classicchevyhirecars.com.au/), a 1957 Chevy Belair.

The bride and groom absolutely loved the car, so much so that we eventually had to tear them away to get a few photos in other places!

The driver was very friendly and a great help, going […]

Jono and Lyndal’s wedding

Jono and Lyndal got married on March 29 at the Baptist Tabernacle, right in the centre of Newcastle.

When we showed up at the house where Lyndal and her bridesmaids were getting ready, it was all calm, cool and collected. Nobody seemed to need to rush around too much which is quite unusual for a wedding […]
