I love the simple things in life!
I find less is often more!
My style is simple, classic, natural and fun!

My photos are all about LOVE!

I like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne….  Oh actually an Apperol Spritz is my favourite at the moment!

I would love to hear all about you and your love story.

Dave & Ashleigh’s Wedding, Shelley Beach & Caloundra Powerboat Club Sunshine Coast

Oh what a wedding … I’m full of love for this couple and their family.  I met Ashleigh at a Bridal Open Day at Caloundra Power Boat Club. The first thing I said was “Wow, I would love to photograph your eyes!!” Well my dream came true and I photographed those beautiful eyes and mermaid hair on her wedding day … the best thing about Ash is that is even more beautiful on the inside!

Dave and Ash were married at Shelly Beach.  Dave struggled to hold back to tears when he saw his 4 children walking towards the aisle.  By the time they had reached him he could no longer hold them back and gave them all a big hug.  His beautiful bride walked along the beach with her Step Dad and then down the aisle with her father.  It was a heartfelt moment as the couple finally stood side by side.    During the ceremony Ashleigh made a promise to Heavenly, Taj, Summer & Indi as well as their Dad!⁣

We had a stunning afternoon on the beach, Mother Nature was looking after them and washed up a heart shaped rock onto the beach!! How amazing!  They had quick ride in the the Blue Kombi to a tucked away boat ramp.  Love this spot, it has some of the best light and is perfect to gaze at the sunset. These newlyweds were super lucky, with a spectacular afternoon!!!

I love to get a personal insight of the day.. here are some words from Ashleigh:

How would you describe the theme/style of your wedding?

What were some of your favourite wedding details..
Having Luke Anthony playing acoustic music on the beach really set the vibe for the whole day, we really wanted people to feel relaxed from the get go

What was the biggest surprise on your wedding day?
How perfect everything went! Not one thing didn’t go to plan

Is there a moment on the day, that will last with you both, forever?
The moment the kids walked onto the beach & Dave saw them… such an emotional moment.

If you were to relive your wedding day again, would you do anything differently?
Not at all!! it was perfect from start to finish

Do you have any advice for future couples planning their day?
Don’t stress the small things. Remember why you are creating this day & enjoy every minute!

What are you most looking forward to as a married couple?
Our next adventure together & adding to our beautiful family

Please describe one of your favourite images from the day.
If i had to pick one.. it would be when I am making my promises to the kids in my vowels & Dave & I are stood with the kids together.. the moment i get emotional

What did you like the most about working with Shell?
Oh where do I start! From the moment I met Shell I knew I had to have her photograph our wedding. I loved just being able to be myself, shes kind, has a laugh & captures everything you want.  Your simply perfect in what you do in my eyes. ..
Love love love your work Shell! Can we do the day all over again!
