Fitzroy Island Wedding – Emma & Cameron

I had the absolute honour and pleasure of travelling interstate to capture a wedding on Fitzroy Island off the Great Barrier Reef, which is a 45 minute boat ride from Cairns.
Please welcome Emma and Cameron. They had a beautiful intimate wedding on the foreshores of Fitzroy Island Resort. It was such a gorgeous balmy day ending with a stunning sunset. 

This was my very first time on the Great Barrier Reef, hence I have never experienced broken coral covered beach. It certainly was very crunchy under your feet. The beaches were so white too.

Chapel Hill Wedding – Courtney & Kyle

Please meet Courtney and Kyle. Courtney wore such an beautiful elegant dress that complimented the gorgeous setting so perfectly at stunning Chapel Hill Retreat.

It was definitely Autumn spectacular! You can see why this is my favourite time of the year for weddings, especially at Chapel Hill Retreat. It was definitely the pinnacle of the season for their beautiful wedding day.

It’s not often you get a pretty cool wedding car like this one. It was actually owned by Courtney’s parents who love restoring old cars.
I triggered a remote flash inside the car to light up Courtney and Kyle sitting in the back seat and to balance the light with the sky. I’m pretty chuffed.

I always love finishing up on location with just the bride and groom down at the Lake lodge at dusk before heading to the reception. It is such a romantic setting and it kind of preps them for their honeymoon night down there. Need I say anymore?

Collits Inn Wedding Photography – Kelly & Grant

It was so nice to be back at Collits Inn for Kelly and Grant’s wedding. The escarpments that surround this beautiful venue are just gorgeous, especially during the golden hour. It was very cold but just magical.

I get to see some pretty amazing wedding dresses with my job. This latest one is from Peter Trends Bridal, a long established name in bridal gowns in Australia. The lace work in this dress was stunning.

During the golden hour, I love playing with the long shadows along with the perspective of the road that leads your eyes towards the bridal party.

Chapel Hill Wedding Photography – Jessica & Nathan

Please welcome my next delightful couple, Jessica and Nathan. I never tire of the stunning electric blue checkered windows inside the chapel at Chapel Hill Retreat. The vibrant colours really are mesmerizing. It made a beautiful backdrop for this lovely profile shot of Jessica and Nathan… so serene.

I was particularly excited about what was happening before my eyes as I captured the last image in this series. BTW, there is no Photoshop trickery. This really happened! We were just wrapping up the location photos before heading into the wedding reception when I noticed the beautiful colours in the sky at dusk. So I thought, quick lets create a lovely silhouette and then I noticed this really long spectacular thin pink cloud. Just then I had an idea and thought this could look like a beautiful pink veil blowing in the wind… well it wasn’t windy but you could just imagine it. So I positioned my camera so that the cloud was in perfect alignment with the back of Jessica’s head. Boom!
I’m calling this “The bride with the pink veil!”

Hi Peter,
We are getting married on 27th May 2023 at Chapel Hill and seeing as you have experience with them and take lovely photos we were hoping to get an idea of your fees/packages. I understand you do not have a videographer but may be able to suggest one also.

Thank you,
Kind Regards
Elodie & Ashby

Loxley On Bellbird Hill Wedding – Lisa & Simon

It was lovely to be back at Loxley On Bellbird Hill for my last wedding of the year. It had been quite a while since I was last there. The grounds were looking very lush after all the rain.

When you have been photographing many weddings over the years, it is always lovely seeing a bride and groom do something a little different from the norm. I was delighted when I saw Lisa in a black wedding dress and her bridesmaids dressed in white… quite the opposite from the norm!

The weather was perfect for an outdoor ceremony on the deck with its majestic views toward the city.
I love all the nooks and crannies at Loxley. There are lots of secret pathways with lush rainforest backdrops… perfect for that softer light on a bright sunny day. As you can see in the photos below, I have kept most of the images in colour. It just didn’t seem right to convert images to black and white when the colour was so lush with all it’s varying shades of green… but I am a little biased as green is my favourite colour.
