Come and see us at The Brisbane Wedding Expo - Sunday 12th February


A 12 Shot B&W Challenge - How Brisbane Wakes Up

Thanks to Col Baker and the Canon Collective for this fabulous little challenge for a morning at South Bank. How Brisbane wakes up is a wide brief, but how to encompass that in just 12 B&W exposures. I started thinking about activity and how so many Brisbanites love to start their day with exercise but didn't think that was encompassing enough so started to look for other aspects of how we start our days - with showers, drinking coffee, listing to ABC, watching Sunrise or perhaps reading the paper. Of course, I also started thinking outside the square and started noticing lots of words that might be appropriate for how we wake up too, but in the end, picked a few that hopefully resonate with people...

In the park with Leanne & Jess...

What do you do when you win a couple's photoshoot competition but your partner is overseas? You grab your bestie and head down to New Farm Park for some photos - that's what you!
Leanne won a competition run by our friends at The Wedding Alley but sadly was unable to take the full prize as her fiance is overseas. We didn't want Leanne to miss out entirely, though, and because she was about to leave Brisbane and jet off to join her partner we decided to do a going-away photoshoot with her bestie, Jess, at New Farm Park and the Powerhouse. We had such a great time capturing these old friends as you will see...







The studio cats get in on the act...

The studio kittens decided to join us at the end of Zoe's portfolio shoot and they were rather fascinated with the backdrop setup - so much so that we decided to include them...


High Key Studio Shots

Dancer Zoe came to the studio for a portfolio update and for some fun recreating some iconic Audrey Hepburn poses which turned out absolutely amazing...

Christmas & New Year Brisbane Style

Brisbane mightn't have snow, but it knows how to put on a show - here's a brief selection from the city around the holiday season...












Family & Friends

Just before the Christmas break we were lucky enough to catch up with some wonderful old friends who have also been clients a number of times over the past 10 years. We first met Amanda & Kylie way back in 2008 when we captured their fabulous wedding day in Toowoomba. We became good friends and were delighted when they invited us to capture some beautiful maternity photos a couple of years later. Now with daughter Taleigha about to go to school, they felt it was time to update the family album and so we all headed off to Wellington Point for a photo shoot. It's such an honour to be invited back into people's lives again and again and something we really treasure and as you will see, when people know you they're so much more relaxed in front of the camera...

A Very Christmas Wedding....

Our last wedding of 2016 was a sophisticated and formal, yet fun and family-oriented occasion, held in the elegant surrounds of one of Brisbane's premier venues, the Stamford Plaza. Christmas was very definitely all around our couple, who have chosen to remain anonymous, with the Stamford looking particularly festive, the Lord Mayor's Carols in the Park providing a  soundtrack for the photo session, and plenty of office parties happening along the Eagle Street riverside restaurant strip Whilst the weather was decidedly unsummery for mid-December, the cooler conditions were appreciated by many of the guests who had travelled from overseas to be there and allowed our bride and groom to enjoy their day even more...
