Mr & Mrs Pendrey - 27th July 2019 - Townsville Wedding

Tory and Jessica tied the knot recently at the awesome venue that is the NQ Elite Rodeo grounds up at Harvey’s Range! Such a lovely young couple and it was a such a fun day with lots of laughs and giggles!! Started at the grounds where Tory and his groomsmen were getting ready and such an awesome area for photos. How cute does Tory’s fur baby Dozer look in his little pink tie standing next to his dad!! Back to Jessica’s parents house where the ladies were finishing off hair and makeup! Jessica is a hairdresser and so are her 2 sisters who in were in the bridal party also and it was a nice touch seeing them do each others hair for the big day. We created a first look for Jessica’s dad and as you can see in the photos he was totally taken away with how gorgeous his daughter looked!! Bit of fun with the family before heading back to the Rodeo grounds to capture their ceremony in front of the awesome barn doors. We let the newlyweds mingle with their guests for a few drinks and to taste the awesome food platters before getting some great shots around the venue then heading to the lookout to make the most of the awesome view that was just minutes away! The reception was inside the barn and I just love the relaxed feeling this venue offers and with the wood fires scattered around to help with the late night cool that was creeping in, it was a comfortable and relaxed night! LOVED the Mimosa Bar where guests had ingredients laid out for everyone to make their own awesome bevvy!!! The cake looked amazing and the sparkly cupcakes that were made by Jessica’s mum were a hit!! As you can see in the photos there was a little mishap when cutting the cake. The knife handle broke while trying to cut the cake the reaction was priceless!! I was shooting the first dance and moving around the couple when I had an idea to shoot from outside the barn with the awesome barndoors pulled closed just enough to frame the gorgeous couple! I think it turned out pretty sweet!! The father daughter dance was perfect and the love Jessica’s Dad has for her was evident and made me think of the day when I’m up doing the same dance with our daughters on their special day!! (That will be a LONG time yet LOL) Just before I left the dance floor was kicking off with nearly everyone getting up to some great tunes supplied by Travis the DJ and I just had to stick around and capture the fun and heel kicking! Great day, great night and an amazing couple! Honoured to have been a part of your special day Tory and Jessica!


Congrats Mr & Mrs Pendrey!!

Mr & Mrs Howell - 20th July 2019 - Townsville Wedding

Recently I captured the awesome couple that is Amy & Dave become Mr & Mrs Howell here in Townsville! From out first meeting and the fun afternoon we had for their engagement shoot I could tell it would be an absolute joy to capture their special and I was right on the money!! Such lovely, kind people and they clearly are smitten with each other from their cute connection I seen when photographing them. The big day was amazing from the start with the weather being spot on right through to the amazing setup at their reception!! Fun was had with Dave and his groom tribe in the morning using the awesome Ville buildings for our backdrop. Up to the presidential suite to capture Amy and her bride tribe who were chill and excited for the big day! Amy looked stunning in her dress and as you can see in the first look I arranged for her bridesmaids and her father, they also agreed she looked stunning!! The Sacred Heart Cathedral was the gorgeous location where they said their I do’s before heading to Anzac park to meet their fur baby Pummba for some family photos! How cute did he look in his little mini suit and bow tie!!! After some fun in the park with the newlyweds and their fun bridal party, we headed to Jezzine Barracks to catch the awesome sunset before heading back to The Ville for their reception. The reception looked amazing with great attention to detail!! Great night with some funny speeches and Amy & Dave wowed their guests with their choreographed first dance. Was an honour to be a part of such an awesome couple’s special day!!

Mr & Mrs Prince - 17th July 2019 - Townsville Wedding

I captured one of the most cutest couples say I do last week!! They are so smitten with each other and very much in love!! Rohan & Stephanie are such lovely people and as I said, very much in love with each other and I knew their special was going to be just that, special! Rohan & Stephanie were very lucky in winning a local competition at a wedding expo which had their ceremony & reception location gifted to them for their special day from the Townsville City Council. The ceremony was inside the Palmetum amongst the gorgeous gardens and they were married under an awesome arbor decorated by the ever talented Fresh As Sas which was an awesome touch to their ceremony! Had a great afternoon shooting firstly in the gardens at Palmetum then heading to Jezzine Barracks until sunset which did not disappoint! On our way to reception Stephanie & Rohan did a quick sneaky run to their fav pizza place for a snack before heading to the reception. The reception was held at the Riverside Gardens Community Centre which was part of their competition win and it was a lovely setup for a relaxed evening with close friends and family. Rohan is a ballroom dance teacher (they met when Stephanie attending a dance lesson and guess who the teacher was? wink wink) so I knew their dance would be on point and it was! Awesome day for an awesome couple!! It was an honour to be a part of their special day.


Congrats Mr & Mrs Prince!!

Mr & Mrs Mangano - 6th July 2019 - Home Hill Wedding QLD

Recently I traveled to Home Hill to capture a gorgeous couple who first met in year 2! The connection started when Andrew looked at Kaitlin’s feet and said “They are boys shoes”!

After school they were close friends for many years and in December 2014 they caught up again and Andrew yelled “Kaitlin’s the love of my life” on Christmas Eve at the local pub and that was where their real love began!!

The love these 2 have for each other was evident throughout the day and spending it with them and their super fun bridal party was an awesome day all round! The reception was held in their backyard in Home Hill and it was a stunning setup with a clear ceiling marquee, gorgeous flowers and decorations complete with an awesome custom made neon sign at their entrance. The dance floor got a little slippery with the cold night air and the lads took it upon themselves to make the most of this slipperiness and came running from the sides and started foot surfing across the floor which was hilarious!

Kaitlin & Andrews day was amazing and I had a ball being a part of it!! :)

Congrats Mr & Mrs Mangano!!

Last weekend Sharni-Lee and Blair said I do in Townsville and I was there to capture their special day!! Such a fun laid back couple who bounce off and compliment each other well and it was evident throughout the day these 2 are in love!! Had a ball with Blair and the boys in the morning with some cheeky jokes and some really bad dad jokes shared! Hey Fergo!! LOL!! Sharni-Lee’s gorgeous bride tribe were a pleasure to capture and help Sharni-Lee into her stunning gown ready to meet her husband to be! Sharni-Lee is a gorgeous young lady inside and out and was such a pleasure to capture. I loved how she couldn’t stop smiling even when I asked for a non smiling shot!

Gorgeous ceremony in St Joseph’s church followed by a fun and relaxed afternoon with the newlyweds and their fun bridal party on our photo locations!! The reception was held at The Ville which did not disappoint and I absolutely loved their bomboniere’s which were individual jars of honey from Blair and his parents Bee hives!! YUM!!!

What more can I say than, awesome day and awesome couple!!

Mr & Mrs Binder - 22nd June 2019 - Townsville Wedding

Last Saturday the awesome couple that are Cheryl & Tyler got hitched and I had the pleasure of being invited along to capture their awesome day! The weather was on point with clear skies and a coolness in the air!! Such a fun day with an awesome couple and their fun and cheeky bridal party!! What I love about Cheryl and Tyler is that they are so polite and nothing was an issue and the love they have for each other is very present especially when we setup a first look before their ceremony and Tyler turned to see his gorgeous bride to be with a smile that was not fading!! The ceremony was held at the Ryan Community Centre with Father Dave Lancini who is always a pleasure to work with and I just love the special gift he gives to all the couples he marries! We chose some great locations and one of the locations was being used by another photographer and their couple when we arrived so instead of using our intended location I improvised and didn’t waste any time in creating some great shots of the newlyweds in some amazing long grass nearby and the afternoon light was amazing!!!! Couple of shots to finish off on the side of Castle Hill for sunset (which was amazeballs) before heading to The Ville for their reception. Shout out to Julie and team at The Ville for yet another awesome wedding reception setup!! Michael from In The Booth Photobooth was very busy with all the guests jumping in for some fun!! At the end of the night we were lucky enough to have a clear view of the fireworks display that was part of an event that night! Free fireworks display on your wedding day… yes please!!! Such an awesome day with such an amazing couple!! Thank you Cheryl and Tyler for allowing me to be a part of your special day!!

Congrats Mr & Mrs Binder!!
