Real Wedding: Katie & Anthony in Caloundra

5th February 2015

Away from the prying eyes of their 70 wedding guests, Katie and Anthony shared their own private moment on their wedding day with a “first look” prior to their wedding ceremony. It is non-traditional, but a growing trend in weddings that we are quite keen on, as a matter of fact. It’s really sweet to have that intimate moment between two people, who are about to become husband and wife. This pair, who met on Australian dating site, eHarmony, are definitely not ones to be tied down by tradition. They put their own personal flair on their Caloundra wedding day…

What is Romance? – Happy Valentines Day!

13th February 2013

When thinking about Valentine's Day, one immediately thinks of being in love. However, it's really not a day about love. Stay with me… See, in my humble opinion, every day should be completely infused with love. You should bask in love every single days in big ways and small. Valentine's Day is really about romance. The gestures, the recognition that you are looking directly at the one person that you adore above all others, and will go that extra mile for. Sure, it might be an overly commercialised consumer-driven non-holiday, but it's a bit of fun and it's an opportunity…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

10th December 2012

Feliz Navidad, beautiful Sunshine Coast brides! The stores have long been busting out the carols, lights are up all around the neighbourhood, almost everyone I know has their tree up, the eating, drinking and being merry is well underway. Oh, and in this part of the world, it is prime beach weather with blue skies, glittering white sand and sparkling saltwater. Divine! To me the best part about Christmas is the decorative factor – everything just looks so pretty! Sometimes tacky… but mostly pretty! And no Christmas decoration I have seen is more super pretty than the one we are…

In 2009, after countless families had been given The Andrea Experience and ended up with some stunning images to boot, a friend of a friend asked Andrea to photograph her wedding.

Since that first wedding, Andrea hasn't looked back and has become one of our most popular Sunshine Coast wedding photographers. As…
