It was a glorious morning at Burleigh Heads the morning we shot Melinda and Jonathan’s engagement session. The 5am start was certainly worth it to be able to witness such a beautiful sunrise. The nature walk is a popular destination for local walkers and runners and I think we were all hoping it would be a little quieter than it is in the afternoon… sadly, I think it was just as busy, if not busier. On the up side, there are plenty of little nooks and crannies off the pathway that are perfect backdrops for portraits, so we made use of as many as we could.
Melinda and Jonathan will be getting married next May at the Abbey, Cobaki. The Abbey is a gorgeous open air, lakeside chapel that is as picturesque as it sounds. I can’t wait for their big day.
Emma and Bryan just can’t wait to get married. No really… they just can’t wait!
I first met Emma and Bryan quite a while ago at a wedding venue expo and they initially booked me for their wedding in September 2014. A few months ago, I received a call to see if I was available on December 7th 2013 instead. It seems the idea of a Christmas honeymoon through Europe was just too good to hold out for, and so they bumped their wedding forward ten months! A great idea I think guys. I wish we were off to Europe for Christmas.
Here is just a small sampling of the images we captured a couple of weeks ago along the walkway through the Burleigh Heads National Park. You’ll see more of Emma and Bryan in just a few weeks.
It seems to be engagement season for us. As the main Wedding season winds back, it’s time to get out there and get back into shooting Engagement portraits for our upcoming 2013/14 weddings. Richard loves to shoot engagement portraits for two main reasons: one – he gets to get out there and visit sites he may not have seen before and two – his portrait sessions are super relaxed and always fun. April and May seem to be the months when we schedule a ton of engagement portrait sessions and over the next few weeks we will have quite a few lovely couples to introduce you to.
Renai and Andrew are one such gorgeous couple who wanted their portraits taken in the stunning Burleigh Heads National Park. This amazing area is practically on their doorstep – it’s a great place for them to unwind and the perfect spot for their engagement portrait. Rich was excited about this shoot because he loves nothing more than getting out into nature and taking photographs surrounded by trees – you might have to climb a few rocks or scale a few trees to get the shots he wants but, I’m sure you’ll agree, the results speak for themselves.
We hope that Renai and Andrew enjoy the next year of planning for their upcoming wedding at Boomerang Farm, they are such a great couple we just know their wedding is going to be something beautiful.
