From what I’ve heard and seen, the Newcastle wedding of Sarah, Cory and Jax was simply gorgeous. Natalie from our Newcastle studio was the lucky photographer that had the chance to share this amazing day. Seeing as I wasn’t there, I contacted Sarah to answer some questions about her day, what worked, what didn’t and some advice for anyone else planning their upcoming wedding in Newcastle.Details
Commercial photography always has its challenges, especially when photographing a busy team of people that are rarely available at the same time and place. Trying to coordinate the staff can be impractical or very expensive when dealing with busy professionals like solicitors. Often the solution is multiple photography sessions which can add up in price and drawn out. We have found the solutionDetails
In a recent blog post, I gave you a bunch of options on how to get the best wedding reception photos once your professional wedding photographer leaves – which is early into the reception in most cases. Well, I’ve found what may be the best solution for more than just yourDetails
In my experience, the bridal waltz falls into one of two categories – the “swayers” and the “dancers” – sure, both can be great: the swayers, lost in their love for each other, the enormity of the day, the release of emotion can be super romantic to witness. The dancers on the other hand are out there revelling in their moment, their day – confident, smooth, fun and exciting to watch.
What if you were a “swayer” and wanted to jump ship to the dancers? Or worse, your partner is already in the dancer category and you’d love to join their ranks on your wedding night? There’s an answer…Details

The advice I give to my couples on whether or not to have an engagement shoot depend on a few things.

I received a phone call from a budding wedding and portrait photographer, Jill, (name changed for privacy) last week asking for some advice. It was easy to hear that she was a little nervous in the beginning but relaxed as we chatted. What surprised me most, was Jill’s last statement – which lead me to my offer below.Details
Are you passionate about photography, have you dreamed of working in the photographic industry – getting paid for something you love to do?
As a photographer for over 10 years and a photography business owner for most of those years, I have seen countless job applications through the mail, email, on disc and the phone – most of which I felt like throwing straight in the bin. It was plain to see that the applicants had put little thought into their approach, delivery technique or attention grabbing strategies.Details

Choosing a wedding gown will be one of the biggest and most exciting decisions you’ll ever make. I’ve known brides that have had their wedding planned and gown chosen from their early teens to others that simply fall in love with the first dress they try on. Then there are the girls that simply can’t make up their mind. No matter which category you think you’ll fit into, you’ll want to hear what Kel from Kel-Leigh Couture has to say on the subject.
It’s interesting how Central Coast photography work seems to constantly ebb and flow. This is noticeable in all aspects of our work from…Details
It was so much fun to enjoy a Newcastle and Hunter Valley wedding day as a bridesmaid. Definitely one of the most honourable things you can do for a best friend and one of the most enjoyable days of your life!
Despite having photographed countless weddings in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley Vineyards, it really was a new and valuable experience to see through the eyes of a BM.Details
I just thought I would share this information for any other couples who have experienced this nightmare!

Four months later and we were still trying to recover them, thinking it was not possible. All the photos were on an external hard drive that had been accidentally reformatted..
How scary is that? How do you avoid this happening to you?Details
