Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club Wedding Ceremony

I love photographing weddings in Manly! I lived there for several years and am still local so know the area very well! I have also been a member of Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club for many years so was delighted to be asked to capture Ray and Clara’s amazing wedding last October!

And what a day it was! It was a perfect day for Manly Wedding Photography – the sun shone, the wind was kind, and look at that for a wedding ceremony backdrop! The Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club is a pretty special place to be married! Oh and Clara and Ray looked pretty good too!

Ray was relaxed and smiling as the guests arrived and Clara was more relaxed than when I had met the guys a few days prior when she pulled up in the wedding car! And how amazing is that dress!

Debbie Thomas did a fantastic job as always, officiating the ceremony and even wove (see what I did there!) a knot-tieing element into the ceremony! I have photographed several weddings with Debbie and she is a star – always a lot of fun, very easy to work with and nothing is ever too much for her! You can check out her web page here:
https://www.letscelebrate.com.au/

Cheers indeed! Congratulations on the perfect wedding ceremony guys! And all the best for the future!

The great thing about Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club is that you don’t have to leave the premises for beautiful bridal party photos! We headed down to the boat ramp for some gorgeous bay and boat shots, and didn’t the guys do well!

And happily there was no need to head elsewhere for the reception as Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club have you sorted there too! And with amazing water views and outstanding food to boot!

Congratulations on the perfect wedding day guys and thanks for being so much fun to photograph! Best Wishes, Andy

Real Estate Photography

Date: 31st January 2019

Location: The Rosy Room, Springfield Lakes

A Thousand Miles Photography are better known for our wedding photography, family portrait photography and newborn photography but did you know we can help you out with your Real Estate Photography too?!

Jess from The Rosy Room Psychologists in Springfield Lakes contacted me earlier in the year to have some interior photos taken at the practice, so we locked in an early morning to do the photos before they opened. Usually the majority of my time during a real estate photography shoot is spent tidying up, removing finger prints from glass or ‘disappearing’ unneeded props like tissue boxes and pens, but Jess had done an amazingly thorough job so as soon as I walked in we started the photos!

Jess had also been to the flower markets that morning. A bit of greenery always make a property appear far more presentable and alive, and I think the results came out very well indeed!

We had already taken some staff photos for the website at the park across the road, so a little over an hour after starting we had photographed the reception area, all practice rooms and the waiting room. We work quickly because we understand occupying staff and work premises prevents your customers from entering, which affects your backline!

Because every real estate photography job is different it is difficult to have a standard price list available, but if you are looking to have your small business property photographed, or if you need staff photographs taking, then feel free to contact us for a quote and we can do the rest!

Newborn Photo Shoot

Date: 23rd January 2019

Location: Red Hill

Maybe it’s because I am a Dad of two beautiful kids, but I love a newborn photo shoot! Newborn babies make for such gorgeous photography subjects, especially when an older sibling stays for a few photos too!

Babies grow up way too fast so a newborn photo shoot is the perfect way to capture those early moments when Bub is tiny, cute and not yet mobile!

Early one January morning I headed to Red Hill to capture Penelope, a beautiful new arrival who made this job far too easy, and a lot of fun! Her big Sister and Dad stayed for a few family photos before having to dash off to work and daycare, leaving Penelope time for some beautiful solo newborn photos.

A sleeping baby is a photogenic baby and happily Penelope slept for a good portion of her newborn photo shoot! It allowed us to switch backgrounds and poses and meant we spent more time photographing and less time settling!

A good hint for a successful newborn photo shoot is to ensure Bub is well fed and warm when I arrive as this helps baby sleep! It is always nice to get a few open eye photos too (and a smiling photo is the Holy Grail!), but its the sleeping shots that often work best.

We have a great selection of baskets, blankets and wraps, but we always feel it is nice to have some unique touches to your photo shoot so we openly welcome outfits, toys and props. We also travel to you so Bub doesn’t feel unsettled, and it means you have those spare nappies and outfits on hand!

Our Newborn Photography Packages start at $349.00 for a 2-hour shoot which includes your high resolution images, without any compulsory minimum spend or photo ordering!

Anniversary Photo Shoot

Anniversary Photo Shoot

Location: Wellington Point, Redlands

anniversary photo shoot couples photo shoot

I love being a wedding photographer! I get to photograph people looking their best, being at their happiest and I get to have a different office every day! But the day is always over too quickly – both for me and the bride and groom! So what a great idea to have an anniversary photo shoot!

photo shoot affordable photo shoot redlands photographer

Doing an anniversary photo shoot means you get to relive the day all over again! You get to dress up, look beautiful, and celebrate being married to the person you love!

affordable photographer brisbane photographer

Affordable Photo Shoot:

We shoot with multiple lenses, one of which is the 70-200mm zoom lens that allows us to keep our distance whilst capturing the details! This lens works great for couples that are not 100% comfortable in front of the camera as it means we can stand back and be as inconspicuous as possible!

cheap photographer family photography

Happily the Redlands is a beautiful spot for anniversary photography, family photography and wedding photography! My favourite spot is Wellington Point Reserve with the Moreton Bay Fig trees, the jetty, bay views and the beach!

couples photography brisbane photography

We always encourage input, thoughts and ideas at our photo shoots, but if you would rather us take the reins then we love doing that too! You are always welcome to bring along props, a change of clothes and pets! These are your photos and it is our job to make them as personal as possible!

I am in the process of loading some family photography photo shoots from last year (and playing catch up!) and I am delighted to say that less than a year after taking these amazing family photos for Kerry and Jason, I have done two more family photography sessions with them! The next family photo shoot was a maternity shoot for Kerry, which was followed a few weeks later by a newborn photo shoot at our studio in Alexandra Hills!

This family photography photo shoot was an awful lot of fun! Sienna was an absolute pleasure to photograph and her very proud Mummy and Daddy didn’t do too bad a job of modelling either!

We headed to my favourite place in the Redlands area for our family photos; the park at Wellington Point. There are always so many options there for photography, from the Moreton Bay fig trees, to the jetty, to the beach so we had lots of backdrops and lots of beautiful moments to capture!

All of our packages include your high resolution images on a disc so there is no need to come back to us to have your images printed. Kerry and Jason wanted to get the best quality of canvas possible so they had a huge canvas printed, and it looked amazing!

I find it the best compliment possible when family come back time and time again for more family photo shoots and I genuinely hope I hear from Kerry and Jason again! I love my job and I adore what I do and it is all thanks to families like the Smiths! You guys are awesome!

What’s the only thing better than a newborn photo shoot? A twins newborn photo shoot, of course!

cheap newborn photography best newborn photography newborn photography ideas

I was lucky enough to capture Brenda and Ben’s beautiful girls one warm morning in April last year and had an absolute blast! I knew Ben from capturing his sister’s wedding a couple of years ago, so was delighted to hear that not only had the guys had a beautiful baby girl, but two!

newborn photography brisbane newborn photography gold coast

The biggest difference between a newborn photo shoot and a twin’s newborn photo shoot is that there is twice the chance of waking up, meltdowns an tantrums! Happily the girls were beautifully behaved and gave us some sleeping photos, some awake photos and were even well behaved when we went to a local park to do some natural family photographs!

What I love most about this photo shoot is how natural everyone looks and how relaxed! Not easy when you have to brand new people thrust into your lives!

Thankfully, Brenda and Ben colour coded the girls for me! That could have lead to a little embarrassment otherwise!

I love being a Brisbane Newborn Photographer! There is something so amazingly rewarding about capturing something so gorgeous, so delicate and so beautiful and I never see a job as work!

cheap newborn photography affordable newborn photography

 

 

 

 

 

I think having two of my own helps! I know how the meltdowns go, and when to hold off from the photos to allow Bub the chance to feed or have a cuddle. Moreover, I don’t stress when the meltdowns do happen; it is all a natural part of being a Brisbane newborn photographer!

best newborn photographer newborn photographer redlands baby photographer

Happily I didn’t have to stress with our beautiful little model, Jasmine! She was a star from the start with minimal fuss and managing to sleep almost all the way through her newborn photo shoot!

best baby photographer affordable baby photographer

 

 

 

 

 

It also helped that Mum and Dad were superstars too! Derek and Belinda were very calm (even if Derek did insist on pulling out his Liverpool FC scarf! Red rag to a bull for a Manchester United support like myself!) and had a lot of fun throughout the newborn photography session.

We finished up the session with some family photographs, then we left Jasmine to sleep without the camera!

A few days following the newborn photo shoot, I received a card in the post from Mum and Dad with a photo of jasmine on the front and a touching message inside. That is what it is all about! When your job allows you to do something as amazing and meaningful as newborn photography, then you know your job is a lot of fun!

Dear Andy, Just a short note to sat thank you for the beautiful photos you took of Jasmine and us – we are really delighted with them and they will give us some wonderful memories. Belinda, Derek and Jasmine

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.

couple photos couples photography family 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.
