It was a simply glorious afternoon on Tuesday in Byron Bay. I spent the last 90 minutes of daylight strolling between The Pass and Clarkes Beach, capturing these images for Kym & Kent on their engagement session shoot. We include an engagement session with each of our wedding packages. It’s a great way for everyone to get to know one another, and for me to understand what is important to the couple photographically. I believe this is something that shouldn’t wait until the wedding day and having this prior knowledge can only add to the quality of images captured on the big day.
Kym & Kent are to be married this Saturday in Alstonville with their reception at Down Convery’s Lane. Keep an eye on the blog for more from this stunning couple.
I don’t believe I ever question why I live in this part of the country, but if ever I did, afternoons like last Sunday would surely be reason enough. It was a spectacular afternoon in Byron Bay and the perfect setting for an engagement session. Melissa and Sidney are an awesome young couple and really great sports. We spent much of the afternoon just admiring the weather and the sunset, but at other times, they were climbing over sharp rocks, strolling down dirt tracks, along-side no-so-pleasant-smelling swamp lands and standing in ankle-high sea water (which turned into waist-high sea water as soon as they hit their marks)… anything to get the shot!
The Bangalow Guesthouse will play host to their November wedding and I really can’t wait to spend another day shooting with these guys… they truly are a wonderful couple.
It seems like only yesterday that I was photographing the Carter family. I covered Stacey Carter’s wedding late last year and for Mother’s Day this year, she gave her mum Joy a gift voucher for this photo session. It was wonderful to see everyone again and while we had to duck for cover a few times during sudden bursts of rain, all in all I think everyone had a great afternoon.
What a beautiful afternoon it was yesterday for Renee & Tom’s engagement photo session. I’ve said it before, and I’ll no doubt say it again… Byron Bay and her surrounding villages have no shortage of gorgeous locations to shoot in. Renee & Tom are Ewingsdale locals and we started the session just off the highway on the way into Byron Bay. Ewingsdale has some beautiful country settings and it is literally just a few minutes from the beach. From there we headed to Belongil Beach for a little variety in the session. The guys introduced me to a part of Belongil that I hadn’t been to before. An amazing, secluded beach that I am sure to return to.
I hope you enjoyed the session as much as I did guys and that you love your images. I can’t wait for your Figtree wedding next year.
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.
