Thunderstorms and Lightning — Alana and Jamie

Happy New Year everyone, even if it’s a little belated… it’s still January, right?

It’s been a rather intense few weeks, as it’s a time when everyone shifts into wedding planning mode. We want to thank everyone who’s entrusted us with photographing their weddings… looking forward to a fantastic 2013.

Anyway, […]

Anne and James — Newcastle Rendezvous

Had a blast the other day down on the old Fernleigh Track with James and Anne. Their wedding is coming up oh-so-soon now, and it’s going to be great fun.

In keeping with the theme of the wedding and Anne’s great taste… we went a little vintage with these photos… definitely tell me what you think.

Oh […]

Carly and Brendan’s engagement session

With the crazy weather of late, it’s been a bit tricky to get out and take some photos.

But Carly and Brendan were prepared to brave it, but after a warming coffee at Baristaba (recommended!) it just meant we had the whole Honeysuckle foreshore area to ourselves, without another soul in sight.

Naomi and Dan’s engagement session

So Nai and Dan are getting married this coming Saturday, and we got the engagement session in at the last minute. We picked a spot, good old Nobbys Beach in Newcastle, which is just lovely around sunset time.

When we arranged it, they actually asked if could some shots in the water. I’m always up for […]

Tahnee and Morgan’s engagement session

Just in time for their wedding tomorrow, I bring you Tahnee and Morgan’s engagement session. We wandered around Newcastle’s Pacific Park, the beach and skate park.

I was disappointed to hear that the graffiti wall that serves as a great background for these guys is no longer there. Bit of a shame.

So tomorrow it’s off to […]

Bonnie and Nick’s engagement session

With their wedding coming up this Saturday, I wanted to catch you up on Bonnie and Nick’s engagement session before the week was out.

These guys were super keen, and still wanted to go ahead even though it was a freezing gale on a winter’s night, punctuated with driving rain for a few minutes at a […]

Julia and Joel’s engagement session (and bonus wedding sneak peek)

I’ve been a very lazy blogger, and have just been uploading photos to Facebook of late. But I’m repentant, and promise to do better from now on. So to kick off my new “motivated blogger” streak, here’s Julia and Joel’s engagement session.

We headed down to Glenrock Lagoon near the scout camp. Wandering around the bush, Julia […]

Lisa and Wayne’s e-session

It’s not too often that the best time for an engagement photo-shoot is at 10am on a Monday morning, but it’s certainly more fun than sitting at a desk and wishing the weekend wasn’t over.

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. […]

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. […]

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!

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 […]

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 […]

Rochelle and Chris’ engagement session

What to do on a brisk and beautiful autumn afternoon, when the lake is shimmering and the leaves are turning to gold? Go and have an photoshoot in the park, of course.

Hold on for their wedding photos, they’re looking spectacular.

Emma and Brad’s engagement session

We rushed to get in Emma and Brad’s engagement session, as the weather up this way has not been kind of late. Their wedding is coming soon, so to keep you tided over until then, here’s some photos from that session.

These photos are from One Mile Beach, up in Port Stephens, where the bush, ocean […]

April and Ben’s engagement session

April and Ben’s wedding will be coming up in May, and so it was time for their engagement session. We headed over to Speers Point Park, their favourite spot for walking the dogs (who star in some of the photos), but a place that’s pretty new to me.

You can tell these two like to have […]

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 […]

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 – […]

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 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 […]
