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 😉

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?

A Perfect Beach Wedding Location

Where is a perfect Beach Wedding location?

The answer is simple. A perfect location for a beach wedding is Palm Cove, just 25 minutes north of Cairns.  Check out this promotional video about Palm Cove. Looks pretty darn nice hey !   There are so many things that wedding guests can do when they are there.  Most make it a mini holiday and I often hear them say that it was the best wedding they have ever been to.

I have to say though, the best thing for the Palm Cove wedding photos are the huge array of photo locations.  In the space of a few hundred metres are enough great spots that we can easily spend a couple of hours there.

Breathtaking !!

Sheryn and Ross @ Thala Beach Lodge

Port Douglas Wedding Photography at Thala Beach Lodge

I have not shot a wedding at Thala Beach Nature Reserve (Thala Beach Lodge) for a few months, so when I had the good fortune to be back there I was so keen to have fun and get some great shots.  What do you think?

Sheryn and Ross were so funny .  Their nick names were mischief and mayhem and they certainly lived up to it.

Port Douglas Wedding Photography at Thala is spectacular and Thala Beach Nature Reserve is one of the amazing places in the tropics for a beach wedding.

Photo Magic within 100 metres

Trevor and Donna’s Palm Cove Wedding Photography

It’s what I love about Palm Cove. Everything is there in close proximity.  Stunning beach,  beautiful, tranquil rainforest and classy, elegant resorts.

Take the very fun couple Donna and Trevor.  They eloped from Sydney for a destination wedding after being together for 14 years.   All their Palm Cove wedding photography was shot within a 100 metres radius of the beautiful Alamanda Wedding Chapel.

Beach Wedding Setting

How simple is this beach wedding setting in Palm Cove last weekend.  The celebrant Eve Prince set it up for the couple.  Its close to the northern end of the beach in front of the caravan park.  Don’t let that put you off, because it’s relatively private and possibly the best location along Palm Cove for a beach wedding because there is a big shady tree.

Jessica and Daryl’s Palm Cove Wedding

What a nice couple Jessie and Daryl are. They are Cairns locals and married a few minutes from home. They had their Palm Cove Wedding at the stunning Alamanda Chapel and had their reception at the NuNu restaurant also in the Alamanda resort. Who wouldn’t if you lived near Palm Cove.

After a very dry winter it decided to start raining the week of their wedding.  You may find it strange, but that can be good news.  Take a look at the sky in some images below.  Also the light is softer and shadows easier to manage.  Jess and Daryl were keen to give anything a try and played to the camera while Julia and Muz looked on.

Best thing is I know I’ll remain friends with them. They are really genuine and a lot of fun.
