Dance like everyone is watching...

As the end of the year rolls around, so does dance concert season, and we were lucky enough to be invited to capture the All That Dance concerts at The Schonell Theatre at the University of Queensland again this year. To make sure we captured as much of the action as possible, we shot the dress rehearsal and all three performances from different angles to maximise the number of performers we could feature, as well as running a studio shoot for more formal dance photos. It was a pretty full-on week but all the hard work by the dancers paid off in spectacular style with a stunning series of shows...










And so this is Christmas...



Yes, it's that time of year when some of us start having palpitations about the perfect gift to give someone special, who just happens to be difficult to buy for!

Well, stress no more because we have the perfect gift for everyone... the gift of memories!

Kim & Ryan's Chic Picnic Wedding in the park...

When you want to celebrate a small, intimate, special day with close family and friends, nothing beats a chic picnic in the park and Kim and Ryan, together with their closest family and friends created an absolutely magical experience at the Anstead Bushland Reserve in Moggill. With so many special touches, from the totally in-vogue upcycled furniture to the lawn games for guests to play, this was another totally unique occasion that also featured a gourmet picnic spread which included lots of delicious South African-inspired dishes. We are loving this trend of smaller weddings that showcase more personal style and involvement and where it's all about the love, the emotion and the commitment and less about the budget and location...































Supermoons to Superjumbos...

Last week had a little bit of everything, photographically-wise, from the spectacular Supermoon on Monday night to Superjumbo jets airside at Brisbane Airport on Tuesday morning, followed by some fashion videography on Wednesday, a wedding on Saturday, and finally a dance concert on Sunday!
Here's a little peek at some of our supermoon shots and the amazing opportunity we had, thanks to the Canon Collective for some runway-side access to Brisbane Airport...

Firstly that Supermoon, shot from Mt Cootha...







And now some of the shots from Brisbane Airport...
