Donnie emailed me in the new year to book in a couples photo shoot but I had no idea it was going to be a surprise! The look on poor Maddie’s face when I interrupted their milkshake date was priceless!

So gentlemen, let me just highlight the new benchmark for romance! Donnie not only organised a romantic couples photo shoot for his partner of three years, but he aced the photos too! That must have earned him a good few brownie points!

Donnie and Maddie must be amongst the most natural and enthusiastic couples I have photographed, and I humbly believe the results are amazing as a consequence! Both of the guys were happy to take some gentle coaxing and suggestions and were only too happy to pose and cuddle up for the camera!

Romantic Couples Photos

We did the couples photo shoot at Wellington Point Park, one of my favourite places in the Redlands for romantic couples photography. We started at the Moreton Bay Figs (honestly, is it possible to take a bad photo here?!) before talking a walk along the beach and then heading to the jetty. It was a warm and beautiful morning with Donnie and Maddie making the most of the conditions to get some fantastic photos.

The time flew! We had an hour and it felt like ten minutes! I truly love what I do for a living and I hope it comes across in the photo shoots! I always say that if the time flies then you are having fun, and if you are having fun then how can it possibly be work! Thank you so much for an amazing morning guys and I hope to see you again soon! Andy

We got the photos yesterday and they look amazing! We are both so very happy with the result and both want to thank you again for being so nice and easy to get along with, also for taking such awesome photos!

I really hope we get to work with you again one day. Until then thank you again so much and take care.

Hi there, let me introduce myself! My name is Andy Williams and I am a Redlands Photographer!

I love the Redlands but only moved here in 2015. We are based in Alexandra Hills and have a home studio, but we absolutely love on location photo shoots, such as Shahn and Joe’s Engagement photo shoot at Wellington Point park!

I particularly love Wellington Point as a location for photo shoots as there are so many options for backdrops! I always start at the beautiful Moreton bay Fig trees, before moving to the beach, jetty and bay views on the opposite side of the peninsular. Being a Redlands photographer means I know the area very well and know of a few secret photo locations!

Shahn and Joe were an amazing couple to photograph; so relaxed, so much fun and so much in love! I was privileged to have been asked to capture their wedding a few months after capturing these photographs, and that wedding day was equally as fun as this engagement shoot!

We were lucky that Wellington Point park was quite quiet that day so the guys had the place to themselves! We used all that the park had to offer and got some amazing and natural photographs; one of the specifications that the guys had before we started!

Venue: Brisbane Botanic Gardens

When Sam sent me an email asking if I could do a couple’s photo shoot in Brisbane’s Botanic Gardens, I didn’t need asking twice! It is one of my favourite spots in my favourite city in the world and I jumped at the chance!

professional portrait photography professional portrait photography brisbane

I met Sam and Todd on a warm January day, introduced myself, had a chat and dived into the photos! Although it was a warm day, it was perfect conditions for a couple’s photo shoot – slightly overcast and nice and bright.

It also helped that the botanic gardens were in full bloom; colour adds amazing depth to a couples photo shoot and makes for a fantastic backdrop.

The botanic gardens have some incredible locations for couple photos, but my favourite spot must be Fig Tree Avenue!

After capturing some beautiful couple photos in the park itself, we headed down towards Eagle Street for some photos with the Brisbane River and the Story Bridge as a backdrop. The breeze was fantastic and the light was amazing!

I always like to grab a few couple photos just outside the Botanic gardens on Alice Street, where the banyan trees have started to reclaim the fence!

I love photographing weddings on the Gold Coast! Maybe it’s because I’m from the UK where you never get the chance to photograph beach weddings, but there’s something about being on the beach that makes me smile!

And this wedding was unique in so much that there wasn’t a wedding happening! David and his beautiful bride were married in Japan and came to the Gold Coast for some beautiful beach wedding photos and I was more than happy to oblige!

We chose the area around Main Beach as it is rarely busy, and being a Monday it was even less so. There is also a beautiful rainforest area between the road and the beach which gives a more diverse option for photos! We started there and got some fantastic shots of the guys in their finery and then headed to the beach itself for some more open shots.

It wasn’t the brightest, sunniest day ever, and we had a bit of rain too, but an overcast sky means less shadows, squinting and harsh contrasts so I was doing a little happy dance as I headed down there! Of course rain means rainbows – which we were rewarded with – and umbrella shots always look intimate and cosy.

Being a wedding photographer is fantastic: you get to meet a lot of fun and amazing people, and you get to spend the happiest day of people’s lives with them! How cool is that?!

IMG_0017x IMG_0023x

Siobhan and Sandeep’s wedding on Mount Tamborine was particularly awesome: the guys are such amazing, laid back people and were so welcoming. They are clearly profoundly in love (yes folks there were tears!) and they both looked amazing! That day, being a wedding photographer on Mount Tamborine was a fun thing to be!

After a few family photos, I dragged Siobhan and Sandeep into the heart of the gardens for some bride and groom wedding photos – and didn’t they do well! They were both an absolute pleasure to photograph and made it so much fun! It helped that they are both amazing looking people and that the camera loved them both! The gardens did us proud too and looked fantastic, and with so many places to choose from, it’s a great spot for wedding photography.

The wedding reception was at Tea and Niceties, an awesome tea shop a few minutes away from the gardens where we headed to get some photos of the cake cutting, the reception set up and of the guys themselves in the amazing gardens! If you have never been there, go! It’s an incredible place, and so pretty! And a perfect spot for a wedding reception.

I left the guys as they sat down to afternoon tea and couldn’t stop smiling all the way home! Sometimes you don’t need to say too much: the photos say everything you need to! Thanks heaps guys – I had a blast and I absolutely adore your wedding photos!

We received the photos yesterday. They are exceptional! Sandeep marvels at every shot looking at the finest details and the quality. My grandparents were most impressed and said you didn’t miss a trick. We love them. I am so pleased to have these photos as precious memories. THANK YOU!!!  – Siobhan and Sandeep

Kangaroo Point Wedding Photos: Lejla & Ares

Kangaroo Point Wedding Photography: Lejla and Ares

Location: Kangaroo Point

Date: 3rd January 2017

You might recognise Lejla and Ares from a previous post – I was lucky enough to photograph their engagement shoot last year! Happily they invited me back to photograph their Kangaroo Point wedding in January and I was ecstatic that they did! The guys are so easy to work with and so laid back; and yeah – they make my job easy by being very comfortable in front of the camera!

 

 

We met at the top of the cliffs and headed straight to the bottom to photograph at one of my favourite places in Brisbane – the little peninsular of rock that juts out into the Brisbane River and rewards the eager wedding photographer with an amazing city backdrop.

We had a great day for wedding photography; slightly overcast but nice and light.

We had an easy wander down river towards the city, stopping for photos and chatting. We ended up at the awesome white wooden pagolas that stick out into the river – another amazing spot for wedding photos. Kangaroo Point is an awesome location for bridal photography as there are so many options and such incredible backdrops. There’s the option of urban wedding photos, rural wedding photos, and rustic wedding photos, so we had a very easy run that day!

And of course it helped that Lejla and Ares were so confident in front of the camera and were so ready to laugh!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We then headed south back towards the cliffs, grabbing some photos amongst the trees and then climbing the ramp back to the top of the cliffs for some great pics in the rotunda. How amazing does Lejla look in her dress with the city through the window?!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love Kangaroo Point wedding photos; there is such an amazing variety and such an incredible backdrop! I can’t wait to get back there again soon!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I mst apologise for the long post – I couldn’t decide which Kangaroo Point wedding photos to prioritise! I love them all! Enjoy! And congratulations to Lejla and Ares for an amazing wedding and a fantastic Kangaroo Point Wedding Photography session!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hey Andy!

we’ve just received the photos and my god do they look incredible!! thank you so much for photographing our day on such short notice and for once again blowing our minds!! we are in love with the photos!

good luck to you in the future, hopefully we meet again some day!

Engagement Photo Shoot: New Farm Park with Renee and Andrew

Engagement Photo Shoot: New Farm Park with Renee and Andrew:

Date: 10th April 2016

Location: New Farm Park, Brisbane

engagement photos couple photos

 

 

 

 

Engagement Photo Shoots are a lot of fun! It is probably the first time that the couple have done something for their wedding that suddenly makes everything seem very, very real, so there is a fantastic, excited ambience about them!

couples photoshoot        couples photography        couple photography

Secondly, people look awesome on their engagement photo shoots! They are spending their afternoon with their fiancee looking good – what’s not to love!

couple portraits

And so it was with Renee and Andrew, an amazingly fun couple who are getting married in August this year and wanted some nice photos to include on their wedding invitations. New Farm Park is an amazing place for an engagement photo shoot and just so happened to be a special place for Renee and Andrew so we met up at the Powerhouse and went through the plans for their big day over a beer and then got snapping! Renee had warned me that Andrew isn’t the most comfortable person in front of a camera (Renee on the other hand very much is!) and that I might have my work cut out. He was a professional! I stood back with my long lens and let the guys be themselves and photographed them as they chatted and cuddled, and after a few minutes Andrew was relaxed and having fun!

couples photography brisbane couple photography brisbane

There are so many locations in New Farm Park that make for great couple photographs so we chose 3 or 4 different spots and once the guys were a bit more relaxed, I pushed the friendship and grabbed some posed shots. By the end Andrew was as comfortable in front of the camera as he was in the pub! It was so much fun and the time really did fly by.

The park was quite busy but we chose our locations and angles well so that the only people in the shots were the beautiful couple – and don’t they look amazing! Renee’s smile is just awesome!

wedding photos     wedding photographers     engagement photos

I asked if there were any shots the guys would like and Andrew was the first to jump in with a few ideas! I love that: I love the enthusiasm and the input! It also means you get the shots you want rather than the photos the photographer wants!

But all too soon we had to wrap up, but Andrew said how easy he had found the photo shoot and how much more relaxed he was going to feel at his wedding in August! I think the photos show how much you enjoyed it my friend! I can’t wait until the real thing!

“Hey Andy, thanks so much for yesterday, we had such a great afternoon ( I may have had more fun than Andrew though) haha! He still really enjoyed it which was awesome! He thinks I did extremely well getting on to you for photos… he thinks he will be able to handle wedding photos now!! hehe. Super excited to see your awesome shots!! Renee”

“Hi Andy – the disc arrived yesterday…it was a delightful evening of looking at ourselves!! They are awesome!!! Thanks so much!!! LOVE them.. now to get the invites done.. yippee!!!
 You are the best!! :)Renee”

Engagement Shoot: Kirralee and Kylle

Engagement Shoot: Kirralee and Kylle in Brisbane Botanic Gardens:

Date: 17th March 2016

Location: Brisbane Botanic Gardens

couples photographer engagement photography

 

 

 

Engagement shoots are a fantastic idea in my humble and totally unbiased opinion. Firstly you get to spend a fun afternoon with your loved one. (And me..) Secondly you get some amazing photos for your wedding invites and gift table on your actual wedding day. And thirdly you get to learn some cool and groovy poses so that you can smile and ‘Blue Steel’ the show on your wedding photos!

portrait photography portrait photographer

 

 

 

 

 

I had met Kirralee a few months earlier when she booked me in to be her wedding photographer but I didn’t meet Kylle until two weeks prior to the engagement shoot. He mentioned that he would quite like a dry run before the big day so that he didn’t ruin their wedding photos with awkward stances and fake smiles. Very good plan! We arranged to do an engagement shoot in Brisbane Botanic Gardens one cloudy but pleasant afternoon in March and met by the main entrance on Alice Street.

“Got any thoughts?” I asked,

“Nah,” Kylle answered. Cool, lets begin!

brisbane wedding photographer       wedding photography       family photography

couples photos wedding photos

 

 

The guys were actually pretty good right from the start. I gave a little guidance but I always feel that too much micro-managing leads to even more awkwardness, so I prefer some gentle initial suggestions and then let the couple take the reins! We started by the lake, trying our best to avoid the ibises that tried valiantly to photobomb our shots and then headed back outside the park to get some photos by the fig tree roots that have reclaimed the park railings.

family portrait       family photography       family photos

The good thing about Brisbane Botanic Gardens for couple photography and engagement shoots is that there is such a variety of backgrounds and points of interest. We found a massive banyan tree and posed around the roots, and it wasn’t long before Kylle was up there chilling out and, quite literally, monkeying around!

photography brisbane wedding photographers

 

 

 

 

 

I had photographed a wedding here a few months prior and had loved the bamboo groves that dotted the park so we headed there for some nice romantic shots. Bamboo always adds interest and depth to a photograph, and they always give a lot of texture and interest to black and white photos.

photography brisbane brisbane photographers

 

 

 

 

 

We didn’t just go for smiling-at-the-camera shots, and mixed it up with some moody lighting and Calvin Klein poses. Kylle in particular enjoyed this part!

And we finished up just as the sun was setting and gave us some beautiful soft light. Kylle thought the engagement shoot was a great idea and had a lot of fun and having just photographed their wedding (as I type) he certainly got some good posing hints from it too! Not that he needed it!

Engagement Shoot: Ally and Luke’s Family Photo Shoot

Engagement Shoot: Ally & Luke’s Morning at Wellington Point:

Location: Wellington Point Jetty
Date: August 2015, 8am

One of the things I love most about what I do is meeting fun, relaxed people, especially when doing something as amazing and fun as an engagement shoot, and there are very few people more fun and relaxed than Ally and Luke and their beautiful little family!

We met at Wellington Point jetty one clear and surprisingly warm August morning; the guys accompanied by their friend Kelly who had organised the engagement shoot as a surprise gift. Ally mentioned that they had never had a professional photo shoot before, and that they were a little nervous. Well they needn’t have been! They were absolute naturals, and an absolute pleasure to photograph! Luke was throwing poses like he was modelling, Ally never stopped smiling, and even the little guys were impeccably behaved and looked straight at the camera the whole time!

We started taking photos at the jetty – which incredibly didn’t have a single person on it – and grabbed some lovely family shots, then handed the kids to Kelly to capture Ally and Luke loving it up! This they didn’t seem to mind at all! This was an engagement shoot after all!

Then we moved to the beach where the boys had a kick around with a football (Luke is big on his footy and their wedding a few months later had a particular football feel!), and then we headed to the beautiful old fig trees – one of my favourite places in Brisbane for family portrait photography – and snapped a few of the kids and the family together. Even poor Kelly, who had come along to chaperone the kids whilst Ally and Luke smooched it up, was dragged into a photo under protest! She was a bridesmaid at the wedding so at least she got a taste of what was to come on the wedding day!
