AIPP Roadshow- Newcastle
July 29th, 2010 | in News

I have just returned from 2 days in Newcastle, teaching at the AIPP Roadshow with Daniel from Pixel Purity and Steve from CHP Image Studio, who was also our incredible host. We covered both wedding & portrait photography, from shooting to photoshop to sales. I had a blast meeting such a great group of people.

On the first day Steve talked about shooting for a wedding. I couldn't help myself from capturing some images from a few different angles.

Georgie & Doug
July 27th, 2010 | in Weddings

Georgie & Doug's winter wedding.

It was only a couple of weeks before their wedding that we run into Georgie & Doug at Deb & Jonathan's wedding. Obviously they compared notes when planning their weddings and hence everything was just perfect.

We started by documenting Georgie and Doug getting ready before heading to the historic Garrison Church in The Rocks. For the location photos it made sense to head to nearby Observatory Hill. In winter the daylight fades quickly and Observatory Hill just manages to catch the last daylight in Sydney.

After the location photos we headed over to Observatory Hotel where Georgie & Doug were staying. Everyone chilled out for a bit over drinks and we managed to get a few more nice images in the Hotel.

For the reception we headed over to The Wharf Restaurant. Both Georgie and Doug's families came to Sydney from the country so here they got to enjoy some of the best views of the harbour.


Ceremony: Garrison Church, The Rocks

Reception: The Wharf Restaurant

Flowers: Susan Avery

Deb & Jonathan
July 13th, 2010 | in Weddings

Winter tends to be a slow season for weddings, but this winter has been pretty busy. 

We photographed Deb's sisters wedding a couple of years ago, so we were pretty excited to photograph the family again and catch up. It's awesome to see a a former bride & groom chasing after their kid now.

This wedding was all about family and the bridal party was made up of their brothers and sisters.

Deb & Jonathan got married at the Barker College chapel which is fitting since they both met while attending Barker College. Being winter we didn't have a lot of time for location photos but we managed to find a spot by the water facing east where we could catch the last rays of sun.

And once the sun went down we just made our own light to create some funky low light images.

We finished up with the reception at Catalina in Rose bay. One thing I noticed all day were the flowers everywhere, the corsages, bouquets, in the church and all over the reception. The flowers were provided and styled by Susan Avery who did an amazing job.

On the way to the reception venue we stopped in Rose Bay for a couple more photos along the esplanade.

Stefanie & Lincoln - a winter wedding in Bowral
July 08th, 2010 | in Weddings

There is probably no better place for a winter wedding than a beautiful estate like Milton Park in Bowral. But that's not the only reason we were thrilled to be photographing Stefanie & Lincoln's wedding. We had previously photographed Stefanie's brothers wedding and photographed portraits of their family & friends; so we had a connection and it was great to catch up with everyone.

Their decision to get married in Bowral was not entirely motivated by the thought of cuddling up in front of roaring log fires but it also had a practical reason. Lincoln's brother, Stirling Mortlock is the captain of the Brumbies and was due to play a match in Canberra the day before. Having the wedding in Bowral was to allow Stirling to make it to the wedding. Unfortunately even the best laid plans sometimes don't work out; instead Stirling spent the time in a Sydney Hospital undergoing surgery for a back injury. It was a real shame for the family as this was a real family affair and Stirling was missed.

The location was beautiful, both Stefanie and Lincoln got ready at cottages at Milton Park that were just full of character. The ceremony was a short drive to the church in Bowral. 

Once the ceremony and family photos were completed we quickly headed back to Milton Park for some location photos. Being winter the sun sets pretty early but we managed to catch the last rays of sun before it disappeared. 

The setting sun provided us with some amazing light. We got some great photos and we had an amazing time.

Once the sun went down it got cold very quickly so we headed indoors for a couple of more photos while the guests were being seated. 

The entrance 

And here we need a special mention of Anthony, Stefanie's brother who did an outstanding job as MC. Despite problems with the sound system he managed to make himself heard and keep the evening running on schedule.

Here he is posing with Lincoln brother Jeremy, not the captain of the Brumbies but a pretty good likeness. 

During the evening we walked over to the pool house for some photos of just Stefanie & Lincoln. 

Making their getaway.
