Pitcher Family

My session with the Pitcher family, is possibly one of the funniest sessions that I have had!  I laughed quite literally the entire way through it and realllllly wish that I had a camera behind me to capture the fun that was happening in order to make each other laugh!!

Gold Coast Wedding Photographer: Kate and Michael’s Wedding {Part 1}

 

I absolutely love photographing weddings!  I was really excited to photograph the wedding of Kate and Michael.  They were very down to earth, easy to chat to and the love between them was easy to see!

Kate and Michael were married at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Surfers Paradise.  It had been wet in the week leading up to their wedding, so my second shooter Louise (from Little Presh Photography) and I arrived armed with umbrellas.  Luckily, we were blessed with fine weather and a beautiful day!

Kate and Michael chose a yellow themed wedding which was absolutely beautiful!  With yellow gerberas, yellow bridesmaid dresses and yellow bows on flower girl dresses, the yellow theme was perfection!  After the ceremony, we went to Miami beach for portraits and then back to the hotel for the reception.

Kate and Michael’s wedding party were so much fun and kept their bride and groom smiling and laughing for the whole day.  Kate and Michael were married surrounded by family and friends as well as their precious baby boy and Michael’s beautiful girls.  A perfect day filled with love!

One of the things that I find most tricky about blogging a wedding is trying to cut down the photos that I include!  There are so many photos that I love from Kate and Michael’s wedding, it is hard to share just a few!  I was lucky enough to be able to capture a big part of Kate and Michael’s wedding day, so will be sharing their photos over a 2 part post 🙂

Keep an eye out for Part 2 of Kate and Michael’s beautiful wedding day!

Until next time!

What Should We Wear?!

It is the most common question I am asked!  It is the thing that I spend the most time considering when I plan my OWN family photos!  So, I have put together some awesome links for you which are a great resource for planning your clothing for your family photos.

Putting together a great colour palette is the first thing that I recommend… Work out what you like, what will give you the look that you are dreaming of.  Try to come up with a colour palette that is a little bit different to everyone else’s photos – check out other photoshoots for inspiration!

Once you have decided on a colour palette, find something in one of your wardrobes that will work for you – and then build on that! Or… maybe… just maybe, it is a chance for a little shopping 😉  Another piece of advice – still look like you!    You still want your family to be the family that you recognise in your photos!

Don’t be afraid of colour but try to use complimentary colours.  Patterns are great – but try to avoid clashing or overly busy patterns.

Once you have booked your session with me, you will receive a preparation package which will help you more with your preparations… however this post should get you started!
