I absolutely love sunset sessions at the beach, and Karmen and Nick’s engagement session was certainly no exception. Karmen and Nick are visiting Australia from Hong Kong and wanted some images to celebrate their engagement but also to capture the essence of their new favourite place, Byron Bay. On a day that started out very overcast and grey, I couldn’t believe the gorgeous afternoon we had to work with. Everything fell into place and the result was a fun, casual shoot in one of the most amazing places on the planet.
The guys are due to be married back in Hong Kong later this year. Karmen and Nick, don’t forget if you have trouble finding a wedding photographer back in Hong Kong, I’m only a nine hour flight away : )
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.
Byron Bay holds a very special place in the hearts of Yasemin and Johan Mårtensson. Although they are both from Sweden, it was Byron Bay where they first met fourteen years ago. The couple have been holidaying here for the past couple of months with their children and wanted to preserve the memories with a photo session on the beach. Below are just a few of the images from their session.
Lately I have been wearing shorts to beach sessions as I usually end up getting in the water up to my knees to grab particular shots. On this occasion however, I had just come from a commercial shoot and was decked out in full business attire. Initially I rolled up my pants as I paddled around but as soon as the first wave hit me, I just gave up and went all the way in up to my shoulders. I think it was well worth the effort though. The water was beautiful and I think we grabbed a few great shots as a result!
Gabrielle and Mitchell arrived in Byron Bay last week from Port Hedland and will be married at Fig Tree Restaurant & Rooms tomorrow. The guys spent quite a bit of time travelling around the country and during their travels sought out the perfect location and venue for their special day. It’s no surprise they chose picturesque Byron Bay and the team at Fig Tree are certainly some of the best in the business! Gabrielle and Mitchell… you chose well.
On Monday afternoon we all spent some time together watching the sunset from The Pass. These guys are such a fun couple and have great chemistry which always makes a shoot like this so much fun. I can’t wait for tomorrow’s wedding!
