Monique met Deb from Boots Photography at a friend’s wedding, and so of course booked her for her own. If you met Deb, you would do the same, trust us on that.

Wow.  Bouquet from Tegan Swanborough at Blossom & Twine

Underwater Wedding Photography

20th May 2014

Now here is a unique idea for you. Once you are married, why not do a “trash the dress” style photo shoot with a difference and go underwater!  //// Sunshine Coast wedding photographer, Alan Hughes, convinced newlywed couple, Elisha and Stephen, to take a leap of faith and go below for their post-honeymoon photo shoot. I bet they are not sorry he did, these photos are nothing short of incredibe!  We love the way Elisha’s dress flows in the water, and they have somehow managed to create an incredibly romantic set of images. I’m sure not all of us could…

Multi-level Carpark Engagement Photo Shoot

2nd December 2013

I am reposting this engagement shoot today. 1. Because it’s awesome. 2. Because I’m sure as it was originally posted over a year ago, many of you would not have seen it before and I don’t want you to miss out! Guess what? You don’t actually have to wear matching white singlets and denim to your engagement photo shoot. And, although there are stunningly gorgeous beaches here on the Sunshine Coast, you don’t actually have to have your engagement session at one of them. And you’ll never believe this – every last pic doesn’t actually have to be all lovey-dovey! …

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…

The Most Romantic Day… So Far – Happy Valentines Day!

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.
