Jackie and Dan – Central Coast Wedding Photographer

Jackie and Dan had Mustangs! I looove Mustangs. They’re fun and that describes Dan and Jackie perfectly. Super relaxed. Great fun to be around.

Jackie and dan had their wedding at the beautiful Nora Head lighthouse on a stunning day. Actually it was so hot that the guests hid from the heat until just before the ceremony started.The girls got ready at Magenta Shores which is a great location before heading of to the lighthouse for the ceremony and photos. After that we headed to the Budgewoi SLSC for a simple and fun reception with friends and family. Due to the heat we moved the photos to a bit later in the day which put much less stress on the older members of the family.

Jackie and Dan would have never noticed that one of my $8000.00 Leica’s went down during the wedding. There were no shots lost and I switched to my other (identical) body without anybody noticing. One of the things about being a pro is that we always have enough backup gear so that when a camera or lens goes down we can carry on as if nothing happened. No matter who you choose to photograph your wedding please make sure they have backup gear, batteries and cards. You only get one chance to get these images. My camera is currently enjoying a holiday in Germany getting its sensor replaced. I wouldn’t mind a trip to Germany…….

Thanks jackie and Dan, for inviting us to photograph your wedding. We had a great time. And a special thanks to the great folks who look after the Lighthouse for allowing us to shoot on the roof.

Central Coast Wedding Photographers – Kathryn and Jason

So Grant and packed up our bags and headed off to the very nice Mercure Lake Macquarie Rafferty’s Resort to photograph Kathryn and Jason’s wedding. We love weddings where there’s no extra travel involved. It makes for a more easy going day. And that was definitely what happened here. Kathryn and Jason were totally relaxed. Kathryn looked beautifully elegant in a gown that suited her beautifully.

It’s always nice when we get to see couples we’ve photographed before. And it was no exception here. It was fantastic to catch up with Lisa and Luke, who’s wedding we photographed in Newcastle 4 or 5 years ago.

The day was overcast but thankfully the rain held off. Overcast light is easy to shoot in but it can be a bit boring, so we worked hard to make sure there was some contrast in as many of the shots as possible. And as the sun went down we also got to have a play with our lighting and got some fantastic shots on the waters edge and the jetty. Kathryn and Jason were both really chilled and I think it shows in the photos. There’s a calmness about them which I love.

Thanks Kathryn and Jason. It was a joy to shoot your wedding and be a tiny part of your special day.

Enjoy the photos. Here’s a few of my favourites for the day.

Kylie and James – Central Coast Wedding Photographer

It rained. It poured. The wind blew. You know. Your typical spring wedding day. Kylie looked stunning as did the bridesmaids but the mornings plans had to change. Instead of a seaplane ride we drove to the Hawksbury River and then by boat to the venue at Bare Point on the river. Grant and I have never shot here before. It’s only accessible by boat or sea plane. But it’s quiet and beautiful.

The clouds threatened all day and it rained in the morning. But by the time the ceremony came around the rain had stopped and we were left with overcast light. No racoon eyes to fix this week. It also means we can limit how much we need to use flash and get lovely natural tones in the photos. After a few weeks of testing it was also the first wedding that I used my new Leica 135mm f3.4 APO telyt in anger. It’s the longest lens available for the M9 and needs a really sensitive touch to get the focus just right. But it’s a fantastic optic. One of the best short telephotos in the world (and it should be for the price).

The ceremony was lovely. Kylie cried. James cried. Even Grant may have had a tear under that cold hard exterior. 😉

And the rain held off.

Enjoy the photos. There’s more in the client gallery section.
