Engagement Photos

Why have an Engagement Photo Shoot

There are many reasons to get engagement photos taken be fore your wedding.

  • Your engagement photo shoot is an opportunity to get all dressed up.
  • It’s an easy and inexpensive way to experience what it is like to have some professional images captured.
  • Any nerves of being in front of a camera are eased once you have done it so on your wedding day.  Guys in particular aren’t very keen on getting their photo taken. It really helps on the wedding day if they have already been through it.
  • It is a perfect time for a make up trial and see how it looks in photographs.
  • You get a great reason to go out on a date afterwards 😉

Best Wedding Photos

Best Wedding Photos

I set about making a new slide show of what I thought was my best wedding photos.  Once I had finished I had left out a lot of photos, but them my daughter watched it and told me to halve it !!  OK I guess she was right so I made it much shorter.

Do you like it?

Black and White Wedding Photos

Who loves black and white wedding photos?

I have to say I do, but it really takes the right kind of image to look good. Photos with architecture, patterns and are not too busy work best.

Take for example the image taken at Paradise Palms. In colour it’s great, but in black and white it looks a bit flat.

Paradise Palms has the most beautiful grounds for colour photos

All the greens of vegetation just become lots of variations of grey.

Then look at the one taken in the Shangri-la near Bar8. It is really cool as a black and white with the woodwork.

But what about something a bit in between? With digital photography we can do that and I really like the subtle toning of the 3rd photo taken in a Cairns cafe. What do you think?

Trash the Dress Video

Trash the Dress

Yes,  brides do trash their dresses, but its usually after the wedding.  This was a couple of years back now, but it’s had thousands of views so thought you might like to see it.  The bride is Katie and she is a really beautiful person.  Photos were taken at Crystal Cascades in Cairns.
