Last week the above image was chosen to be ‘The Face’ of the 2012 Ballina Bridal Expo. This was one of my favourite bridal portraits from the wedding of Louise and James last September. During their wedding day, we had quite a bit of time between the end of the ceremony and the start of the reception, so to cool the nerves and escape the midday sun for a while, we all went to Bistrot Bistro for an hour or so. Bistrot Bistro is a gorgeous little French Bar and Restaurant in Woollongabba, Brisbane. The upper level is very elegantly styled while downstairs is quite rugged and rustic… perfect for a little variety during a shoot!
The above image was a last minute grab… almost an after-thought. As everyone was packing up and preparing to leave for the next location, I noticed some gorgeous light spilling in through the northern windows. I quickly asked Louise to take a seat near the window and managed to snap off about three frames before we had to move on. I love the image and am proud to have had it selected to be this year’s face of the expo. If you come along to the Ballina Bridal Expo this year, make sure you stop by our stand and meet Louise and James in person. It all takes place at the Ballina RSL Club on March 25th between 9:30am and 4pm. See you there!
