Have you seen that look in the blockbuster movie wedding… the killer smile from the bride reserved solely for the groom. The groom gently squeezes her hand and returns that look for reassurance at the altar. You get that feeling that it would be a tragedy for them to be apart… THAT WAS THIS WEDDING! I was there, I saw it unfold. Except there was no
“Here they come… I think that might be them in the distance” I was chatting to the owner of Lucy, the biplane Racheal had organised for photos on her wedding day. I was standing on a dirt road beside a newish hanger at the Hunter Valley airport, not far from Peterson House, where the
Living the dream is a term that gets thrown around a lot. Usually though it’s in regard to to a great day out, sitting by the pool on a resort holiday or even kicking back with a beer on a weekday when everyone else is working. For Danielle and Ian, their wedding on the Northern Beaches earlier this year was the start line for the most amazing holiday/trip/experience… I don’t know what to call it but there’s a
Most wedding are fantastic, in my experience anyway. Most weddings though, are a compromise of some sort and the couple usually have to adjust things to suit. Megan and Dan though, were lucky enough to plan and experience the perfect Central Coast garden wedding with no compromises, it was
How good are weddings that stray a little from the usual – I can’t wait to share all the details. The wedding of Tiana and Ben was a stunning Hunter Valley wedding and one that will stay with me for a long time; not only for its little differences but for the fun, happiness and love that was shared by EVERYONE.
It was a spectacularly awesome day. One of the major differences was
Yvonne and Glen had the perfect wedding. I’d be happy to leave it at that and share their gorgeous photos but I thought it’d be nicer to ask Yvonne to share a little more to help you plan your perfect Central Coast wedding and to read a little about their story and what goes into organising, shopping and preparing for one of the
I’ve had a great couple of shoots experimenting with a new technique that we can now happily offer to you if you’d like to have some light painting photography for your Central Coast wedding. Obviously, these images can only be created at night time but will work in just about any location or venue.
The best time for shots like these on your wedding day would be just before
It’s not often I get to photograph a mates wedding. It sure is fun, extra pressure, but fun for sure. I think the pressure comes from within, certainly not from the couple getting married, Greg and Tahnee in this case, who recently celebrated their Central Coast wedding at Terrigal Haven.
I think the pressure slowly builds as the wedding is something that gets talked about every time we catch up – there is something new, an opinion asked for, an idea to run by me, timetables to discuss… everything revolves around
Meeting with couples looking to book their wedding photographer is a totally normal situation for me. It’s something I do every week. One thing I’ve noticed is some couples are totally sure about what they’re after while others have a better idea of what they don’t like.
I care about every couple at every meeting but it’s easy to focus on why the occasional couple doesn’t book. That changed this week after I received
Nat and Mark were recently married in Newcastle and photographed by Jonathan and Natalie from our Newcastle studio. I put a few questions to the newly married couple to get a bit of an insight to their wedding day and the story behind the two of them – sounds like they like to PARTAY!
What’s the story behind the two of you, how and where did you
Having a great suit for the guys to wear at your wedding will have an affect on the way the boys feel and the way they look in your wedding photography. I guess it’s a bit like great make up and hair for the girls – looking good means feeling good and there’s nothing like
I refer other photographers when I’m booked. Other photographers refer Impact Images when they are booked. This is a common scenario – especially in the wedding industry and particularly for photographers. As a bride, what you have to ask yourself is
It’s pretty standard for women to have their favourite hairstylist but it would be unusual to expect your usual hair stylist to do your wedding hair if that’s not their speciality. Weddings require a hair stylists that know exactly what’s involved in forming a hair style that will look fantastic and stand up to the rigours of a very full day and be able to work to a strict time table every time – especially if
We were so keen to bring this gorgeous wedding to you on our blog but we had to overcome a few issues first. You see, Hayley and Adam recently shared to most amazing wedding day in the Hunter Valley and immediately after, left for a three month honeymoon travelling the world!
Having not seen ANY of their photos yet, we wanted to

I received a question/concern via email from Sam regarding her wedding photography:
“My biggest worry about booking a wedding photographer is price and quality – and finding the right combination between the two.”
In my experience when someone has a question, there’s usually others with the same question on their minds. And, the trouble with choosing a wedding photographer is the choice is so BIG. It seems there are more photographers than any other service when it comes to weddings. You see it at bridal expos, wedding magazine ads, google searches and Facebook! It seems anyone with a camera is a photographer and available for bookings… well almost.
I’ve come up with an answer for Sam
Big weddings aren’t for everyone. Not every bride wants the big white dress, expensive wedding reception or 100 guests. For some couples, the act of getting married is enough. No fuss required. No dramas necessary.
For these couples, eloping is the perfect answer.
I reckon, many couples that have planned their perfect wedding to see it railroaded by
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.
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 your
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…
