Earlier this week Lorna, Nathan and I managed to squeeze in a couple of hours between rain showers to shoot their engagement session in and around Bangalow. The 4th of July is a big day for celebrations for our North American friends, but this year it will be an even bigger day for Lorna and Nathan. The couple are to be married at St Kevins Catholic Church in Bangalow and then celebrate the event with a reception at Bangalow’s famous (and freshly painted) A&I Hall.
January is always a very busy time of year for me as I catch up with finalising album layouts, edit up our recent weddings and start planning for the wedding season ahead. It often means many, many, many hours at my desk and it is always a welcome break when I can schedule some shooting time away from the computer! So, while it was a productive week, I was more than happy to finish the week with the engagement session of Rebecca and Garth, shot in Bangalow – our home town.
Rebecca and Garth are in the region for a few days while they finalise all the arrangements for their beautiful Yamba wedding to be held in March. We kept the afternoon very relaxed and simply took a casual stroll along the train tracks in Bangalow. There are a couple of locations I see everyday and until now hadn’t had the opportunity to shoot in. It was great to be able to use these locations and we all had an enjoyable afternoon, getting to know one another and making images that I hope they will love. Here’s a preview of what turned out to be a fantastic afternoon. I can’t wait until the wedding!
