I love engagement sessions. They are generally a casual stroll with a fun couple in a really picturesque location. Brodie and Will’s session was no different except that we got to explore a beautiful location we didn’t know existed. As a kid I quite often went to Broken Head and would have explored the tracks throughout all the surrounding bushland, but it has been decades since I ventured very far up the Two Sisters Track, that leads south from Broken Head. During Brodie and Will’s shoot, we kept venturing further and kept discovering beautiful countryside. Couple this with gorgeous weather and an ocean full of playful dolphins, and we were guaranteed to have a wonderful afternoon.
These guys are to be married on the beach in September and I can’t wait to share their special day with them.
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.
It’s no surprise that so many couples choose a Byron Bay wedding. With her pristine beaches and stunning scenery, Byron Bay certainly has a lot to offer. Karen and Graeme both love the beach and first met when Karen enrolled in Graeme’s Surf School, so a Byron wedding and an Hawaiian honeymoon seemed the perfect choice!
The wedding ceremony was gorgeous and a real family affair. Graeme’s boys Lenny and Bowie were the best men and the couple’s daughter Lily was the gorgeous little flowergirl. Throughout the day we experienced bright, bright sunshine, sun showers and strong winds during the location shoot at the Byron Bay Lighthouse, but it all made for a beautiful day that was capped off with an absolutely spectacular sunset!
Here are just a few of the images from your day guys. I hope you are having a ball in Hawaii!
