The Spuravs Family

I first met Kristy and Oskars when I photographed Kristy’s sister’s wedding a few years ago, and I had the honour of photographing their wedding in 2014 too. It was great meeting up again to capture their growing family – when we shot these photos Kristy was just days away from giving birth to their new little angel Emily, and Rose was super-excited to meet her new sibling! It was a lovely afternoon of smiles, snuggles and the most spectacular sunset.

Jen & Dave’s Crystal Creek Wedding

When Jen enrolled in a cooking class in Crystal Creek with Artisan Wholefoods, she and Dave thought hey, maybe we should get married while we’re at it. Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is famous for being an incredibly romantic elopement destination, but Jen and Dave decided to have their closest friends and family around them for their big moment – including a long-distance Skype connection with Dave’s son. Technology! Jen made her gorgeous button bouquet herself (and Dave’s little buttonhole), the ceremony was officiated by the lovely Lucille Van Ligten of Ceremonies by Celebrant, and the cake was crafted by Jen’s friend and teacher Jean Martinez of Artisan Wholefoods.

Ashley & Curtis’ Mt Coot-Tha Engagement Session

015-AshCurt

There’s just something about these two. Both old souls with young hearts, and an old romance to match, Ashley and Curtis’ April wedding day is set to be a spectacular event with a 1920s flair and all the love you could dream of. We spent an afternoon touring the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-Tha, capturing these delicate and dreamy images and sharing stories. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding day in just over a month!

Amanda & Josh’s Hastings Point/Kingscliff Wedding

 

001-AmandaJosh

You’d be hard pressed to find a cooler couple than Amanda and Josh – while the details of their day totally added to their story (how cute is Amanda’s puppy in her little wedding collar!) the real focus of the whole day was on their love, and celebrating it with their friends and family – which is exactly how it should be.
It wasn’t all smooth sailing – due to extremely unfortunate circumstances on the day their celebrant was unable to officiate the ceremony, but the lovely Ruth Dunbar stepped in and saved the day (thank you Ruth!). Nobody panicked, they just took the setback as time for an extra glass of champagne and a few more photos.

2015 Fashion Adventures with The Blonde Silhouette

001-TBS2015

While weddings are still my favourite thing to photograph, I’ve fallen in love with shooting fashion quite a bit in 2015. I’ve discovered so many elegant, decaying, urban and natural nooks and crannies around Brisbane and her outskirts, played with and practiced techniques I’m super-keen to try on my wedding couples (I’m not willing to waste precious time on the wedding day if I don’t know exactly what I’m doing!) and been inspired to be a bit more adventurous in my own wardrobe, hair and makeup adventures. I shot lookbooks and runway shows, and even had an image featured in Vogue Paris – living the dream!

I officially started offering fashion photography in 2015, and now I’m super-happy to go one step further and offer packages tailored to the needs of Brisbane bloggers. If you’re keen to find out more, head to my contact page and let’s talk!

As always, the collection below features the stunning Ashleigh McCallum, businesswoman and blogger extraordinaire behind The Blonde Silhouette. Here are a selection of my favourite images with her over the course of 2015.  See you next year!
