A creekside wedding at Amazing Wollumbin Palms Retreat

It was on a very hot November day that Jackie and Greg had their intimate wedding at Wollumbin Palms Retreat under the magnificent Mount Warning. Twelve of their closest family joined them for the ceremony conducted by the lovely Lucille Brace. Jackie and Greg didn't hesitate when we suggested the creek for their personal photos. We wished we could have jumped in there with them! Just for fun, here are some favourite photos in reverse order to the flow.

Second love with Thai style

Deborah and Clive are so lucky to have friends with such a beautiful home in the mountains! The drizzling rain gently fell on Silk Pavilions that day and the Thai styled pavilions were perfect for their preparations and for the ceremony. Debbie looked amazing in her coffee coloured lace gown and her daughter and sister were the elegant bridesmaids. After the wedding the clouds lifted a little to show everyone the stunning views and allow us to go for a stroll with Debbie and Clive through the beautiful grounds looking for those sweet spots.

Tiana turns 18

While we were down in Canberra last month we had the opportunity to do an outdoor location fashion shoot with the very gorgeous and sweet-natured Tiana. Canberra is very pretty and tidy, so we decided on some more urban settings (out at Fyshwick.) Tiana recently turned 18 so we wanted to reflect her maturity and the fact that she may be off to larger cities and all sorts of opportunities before too long. The photos that give the impression that she's lying on lawn were actually taken with her standing against a wall of artificial grass - that was a good find! Some photos she looks about 15 others, more like 19 - I guess thats what being a teenager is all about?

A family gathering at Fingal Head

We were thrilled when Diane from Brisbane contacted us to photograph her family's Mothers Day camping get-together at Fingal Head. They turned out to be a really loving and fun bunch: the parents, five offspring and their partners and six gorgeous grand-daughters under the age of 6! So it was a busy two hours chasing gorgeous moments and the beautiful fading light. Would so love to do this every week!

Sylvia and the creek

The other day we went creekside with the very lovely Sylvia Fenwick (who we first met at the Uplift Festival) for an artistic co-creation. The light was slipping behind the hill as we reached the creek, which solved the dappled light problem and created a more moody atmosphere. Alan was wanting to play with some very long exposures to blur the water movement and Sylvia did a fantastic job of keeping still for 4 or 5 seconds at a time. Sylvia was 21 weeks pregnant so her beautiful little bump was very present in all our thoughts.
We can't wait to do some more photographic explorations with Sylvia and some great ideas are already bubbling between us. Hope you enjoy these!

Out of these 6 I'm entering 4 in the Queensland Epson Professional Photography Awards. Wish me luck. Whatever happens its a great learning experience with feedback from highly regarded judges who are professional photographers in the category you enter.
