BFF comes to the party

leanne_jess_005-2What do you do when you win a competition and suddenly can’t take the prize? You grab your bestie and head down to New Farm Park for some photos – that’s what you do!

Leanne won our Perfect Proposal competition last year but sadly was unable to take the full prize as her fiancé had urgent family commitments overseas. With Leanne about to jet off to join fiancé Justin in a new life in Cincinnati, we decided to do a going-away photoshoot with her bestie, Jess, at New Farm Park and the Brisbane Powerhouse.

Justin and Leanne met and fell in love at a concert in Brisbane a couple of years ago. Since then things have moved at a frenetic pace with Leanne busy planning her huge move overseas, and a wedding at the same time – so just a bit of pressure! To make things a little easier, though, Leanne & Justin have decided to elope to Las Vegas and have planned the full-on Vegas experience – with the obligatory Elvis impersonator at the little wedding chapel – all being streamed live on Skype so both sets of family and friends can be see the ceremony.

We wish Leanne and Justin every happiness in their future together and are glad we could give Leanne a happy send-off with Jess. Dave Wall from Masterpieces Photography + Video had a great time capturing these old friends as you will see…

Trash The Dress

It’s not everyday that the stars align and on a beautiful day, at a stunning location, and with a wonderful young couple, you get the opportunity to capture a full-immersion trash-the-dress shoot. It’s rare to find a willing couple eager to get totally saturated and submerge the entire wedding gown, but when it happens, the results can be magical and so, on those very few days, we thank our lucky stars and just go for it.
Here are just a few of the gorgeous images shot by Dave Wall at Masterpieces Photography + Video of the most beautiful couple we know – Laura and Kane.

Photo Shoot Excitement

CurrumbinShoot1We’re all on a high after our weekend photo shoots around Currumbin. The perfect beaches with stunning white dunes provided the beach side theme we were intending. The week before had seen us nervously biting our nails as we watched the ever changeable weather forecast – just like a couple planning an outdoor wedding have to endure. Luckily the weather Gods played ball and the sun shone and the winds were calm!

The team that collaborated on this shoot were amazing. With exquisite gowns from Elizabeth deVarga and When Freddie Met Lilly this shoot was always going to be exceptional. Our wonderful creative team of Hair Stylist, Aleesha Darke, and Makeup Artist, Suzi Dent, worked so harmoniously, and followed the brief brilliantly.

Our outstanding photographer for the day was Dave from Masterpieces Photography and Video who worked with his usual creativity, efficiency and professionalism to get the absolute best from our gorgeous models from Katz Model Management.

To top it all off we had a charming seaside ceremony and reception set up by the talented Kasey from Fashionable Society Events. The coastal theme was complemented by the fresh watercolour styled stationery from LaPapeterie.

Everything just fell into place, and all the preparations we made came together perfectly on the day. The results speak for themselves and I’m sure you will be as delighted as we are when our new edition hits your inboxes very soon.

Here are some behind the scenes shots just to peak your interest.
