Artistique Wedding Photography - Chloe and Jordan's pre wedding Photo Session

Chloe & Jordan's pre wedding Photo Session

Sunday 12 March 2017 at Norah Head, Central Coast, NSW

It was a wild windy day, but fortunately no rain for Chloe and Jordan's photo session at the rock platform at Norah Head.  We had a lot of wind blown fun! 

 I include a one hour outdoor photo session in my 3 standard wedding photography packages.  This is a great opportunity to see how the couple relate to one another in front of the camera and a closer rapport is built between myself and the couple as well.  Couples often say to me at the planning meeting that they hate having their photos taken, but after their pre wedding photo session I ask "how was that" and the response is, "it was fun, you made us feel at ease", and they get approx 40 nice photos as well!  The pre wedding photo session is done in the few months prior to the wedding and at a location on the NSW Central Coast.  I have 4 locations that I recommend.

Here are a selection of photos from Chloe and Jordan's session and I am looking forward to capturing their beautiful wedding in the spring of 2017.  Hope you like the photos:

Artistique Wedding Photography - Rach and Will are Married

Rach and Will are Married - Wedding Ceremony and Formals.


Saturday 4 March 2017 at Bonnells Bay, NSW


Congratulations to Rach and Will on their beautiful wedding last Saturday. Everyone was a little apprehensive given the very bad weather report and no "wet weather" venue for their Wedding Ceremony. So, their Ceremony was to go ahead outside at Bonnells Bay on the shores of Lake Macquarie in rain, hail, wind or storm - and so it did! It rained heavily and umbrellas were held over the bride and groom during the Ceremony. I was grateful to my Assistant who was able to keep my camera/lens dry by holding a massive umbrella up and to know my every move in capturing their Ceremony for them and so keeping me dry! Guests were all huddled under umbrellas and the signing of the Register was done in the back of the Celebrant's car.

After the formal part of the day was over the bride and groom and my assistant and I moved to another nearby location for formal bridal party photos and took advantage of tiny breaks in the weather where heavy rain became drizzle and then it was back to heavy showers, wind and thunder soon began to roll in just as we were finishing off - good timing!  I always like to recommend to couples that they have a wet weather option, but we made it through, if not a little more than damp at the end of the formal photos!

After the ceremony Rach and Will had an informal Wedding Reception at their home just a walk around the corner from where their formal photos were.  You will see a photo of them walking home to begin their married life!

Here are just a few photos from Rach and Will's beautiful wedding day:

Artistique Wedding Photography - Photographing Children at Weddings

Photographing Children at Weddings

I have captured hundreds of weddings and at most weddings there are children as guests or part of the bridal party.  I absolutely love capturing candid moments of children and have a huge collection of photos, I like engaging with them, even if it does mean I get down on the floor so I am at their level!  I have had a few youngsters follow me around all evening at a Reception, watching what I do!  Anyway, I thought I would share just a few of these with you.  I think children are so natural and easy to photograph, whether it be peeping around at mum and dad saying their vows, taking an active part in the marriage ceremony, dancing on the dance floor, or falling asleep on a chair...
