Engaged: Matt and Danae in Maroochydore

15th July 2013

Matt needed a little convincing that having his photo taken was not in fact like going to the dentist. He’s not alone, many grooms-to-be have this concern in the lead up to the most photographed day of their life. That’s one reason why having an engagement shoot is a great idea. It’s an opportunity to have smiling and posing practice, and to get comfortable with the way your photographer works. This will undoubtedly result in better photos on your wedding day. And in the meantime, you get fabulous photos with your honey! These can even be used for your wedding…

Engaged in the Bush

3rd July 2013

Kylie and Darren commissioned their wedding photographer, Sunshine Coast fave, Alan Hughes Photography, to take some pre-wedding photos that reflected their personalities. Being country people through and through, it made perfect sense to have an engagement photo session out in the bush, where they would feel right at home.  This pair were more than happy trekking through long grass, sometimes way above their heads! Darren is in Land Management and Kylie is a Nutritionist, so they are at one with nature – not so much for our Alan, who was quite pleased the country folk were there to forge the…

Stop Motion Engagement

15th April 2013

In any profession, you are only as good as the risks you take and the new things you try. Without a little bit of fear of what you’re doing, you can’t move forward. And so it was with the slightest bit of trepidation Shawn from Sabra Creative Photography took a swing at creating a stop motion clip for one of her fabulous bridal couples as their engagement shoot.  Stop motion is where you take a stack of photographs of one event and stitch them together to create a film-like presentation. Never having done this before, Shawn picked a couple of good-looking…

14th February 2013

When we thought about today – Valentines Day – we thought about the ultimate romance. And who would be better qualified than to weight in on what it means to be romantic than the Sunshine Coast wedding professionals, who see more than their fair share of all things romance day in and day out. Today we decided to ask them flat out, no mucking around, a very pressing question about the topic…  What screams “romance” to you?  Jules from Julian Beattie Photography says…  “I’d say that romance is a lot like this image in certain ways. I consider romance to be the…

Who remembers our cute-as-a-button Paris proposal pair, Rachael and Brent? We shared their story a few months ago, and since then they have been busily planning their wedding. This Sunshine Coast couple are living in Brisbane and recently had an engagement photo shoot with Focus Films Photography and Video. It is very on trend to include props in your engagement shoot, and of course this couple who connect on a very personal level with the City of Love, simply had to include a few subtle Parisian touches. We really love how they are stylishly, but simply, dressed, allowing their obvious…

Off-beat Carnie Engagement Photos

31st January 2012

Nothing says true love like a day at a carnival with stuffed animals, ferris wheels, freaky mirrors, lock-jawed clowns and sugary treats, right? I mean if we have learnt nothing else from movies, we have surely come to know this to be true.  Laura and Zane sure do love each other, and they sure do have a blast in each others' presence. This fun pair enlisted the help of Julian Beattie to photograph a truly unique engagement session at Aussie World, Palmview, the closest you'll ever come to a permanent carnival on the Sunshine Coast.  Having an engagement photo shoot…
