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...

The carol of the birds...

Christmas in the land downunder has it's own traditions and it's own soundtrack, and one popular Christmas tune that is as Aussie as a BBQ by the beach is the Carol of the Birds. Last week I got to enjoy my own evening chorus whilst photographing the myriad of bird species to be found at the Sandy Flat Lane Wetland Reserve in Wynnum with the Canon Collective and here are a few of my favourite shots...

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...
