While on holidays on the Sunshine Coast, coming all the way from Dirranbandi in south west Queensland, Chloe and David decided to have their engagement shoot! And what a perfect afternoon it turned out to be!
Bec and Tom have to be one of the sweetest couples I have ever photographed. The way they look at each other, the way they make one another laugh and then the deep love you can see when they embrace.. I really can not wait to photograph their big day later this year. It is going to be something else.. Bee x

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of being part of a stunning styled shoot in Noosa on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. This amazing shoot was organised by the very talented, Lauren Montgomery, (MUA) and Ashling Lorger (Hair Stylist).
Three gorgeous models, amazing makeup and hair, stunning couture gowns, beautiful bridal jewellery and vibrant flowers.. could you ask for anything more?!!
I seriously loved being apart of this shoot.. all the vendors are so lovely and down to earth, I highly recommend each and every one of them!

I love a beautiful beach wedding... and Shelly Beach, Caloundra made for the PERFECT location for Brett and Samantha's day!
Sammy made the perfect choice of hair, makeup and her dress... she was such a jaw dropping Bride and Mr Dray scrubbed up pretty nicely himself..!!
It was such an honour to capture these memories for the both of you.. wishing you all the happiness this world has to offer!
It is the age of social media.. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine.. everyone is sharing everything these days and im not about to say that's a bad thing.. I'm super addicted myself haha Actually, I think you'd find it hard to find someone who doesn't use at least one of these now days.... BUT when it comes to a wedding there is such a thing as 'Wedding Guest Etiquette'.
Here a just a few tips that you should keep in mind when you are getting married or attending someone else's wedding;
The prep! If you are with the bride before the wedding, a family member, a bridesmaid or someone helping out on the day...
Do not upload pictures of the bride before the wedding.. those shots can wait till tomorrow! Some traditions will always stick.. and the groom may not want to see his future bride in her dress until the moment she walks down the aisle. Granted some Grooms do even help pick the dress these days but you are better off leaving this one till tomorrow..
Make your social media wishes clear!!. If you are ok with guest taking images on the day let them know but set your guidelines.
Remind them to keep their flash off so not to blind you during special moments and you would think its a no brainer but remind people to stay out of the isle! I dont know how many weddings I have been to where phone clad guest have stepped into the isle to get THE shot of the bride walking down the isle.. but what they are forgetting is that the photographer is being paid to capture that beautiful moment...not the back of the guest head or their Iphone blocking the brides face!
Also if the guest is in the isle they are probably blocking the grooms view of this stunning bride as well... #weddingguestetiquette
Lastly, Guests.. If want to share make sure you ask permission!! Bit of an easy one but always remember to ask if its ok to post straight away.. some couples like to be the first to post to social media.. others don't care.. but the only way you will know is if you ask.
Jess and Matt's vintage inspired wedding was simply stunning! The prep, ceremony and reception were all held at Jess's parents farm, an absolutely gorgeous property in the Glasshouse Mountain. The Wedding and flowers were styled by the bridal party themselves!

We spy secret places
If I am a goofus on the roofus hollering my head off
You are one too
If I pretend I am drowning, you pretend you are saving me
If I am getting ready to pop a paper bag,
then you are getting ready to jump
