Brisbane Wedding Photographer | Jessika & Brent

I recently photographed the wedding of one of my close friends and to say the day was beautiful is an understatement! I’ve known Jessika and Brent for over 9 years now and i’ve loved being apart of the special moments in their life. Jessika and I were pregnant together with both of our children (I even had the honour of photographing her second daughters birth) and now sharing in their wedding day has been so amazing.

I’m quite an emotional person however I’m always so focused on capturing moments during a wedding ceremony that I don’t often get teary. However seeing how emotional Brent was when he finally got to see his beautiful bride (she literally looked like a princess, am I right!?) had me crying behind my camera (as well as all of their guests)! Their ceremony was short and sweet, but packed full of love and laughter.

Thank you both so much for allowing me to create these beautiful memories for you!

A few quick questions for the bride…

What surprised you about your wedding day?
It all went a lot more smoothly then I thought and I was a lot calmer then I thought I would be.

What was your favourite moment of the day?
When we arrived at the ceremony, getting out of the car, walking down the aisle and finally getting to see my husband to be.

What advice would you offer to other couples planning their wedding?
Take in every second, it’s all over so quickly!

Your experience working with Amanda Michelle Photography?
I wouldn’t go through anyone else, her work compares to no other! She was great on the day, capturing each moment big or small. Professional and friendly!

Tangalooma Island Resort Wedding Photographer | Kirsten & Nathan

This time, two weeks ago, we were all settled in at Tangalooma Island Resort and ready to photograph Kirsten and Nathans beautiful island wedding the following day! 

When we arrived at Tangalooma on Friday morning, we were greeted with cloudy skies and a fair bit of rain (actually, we were greeted with pouring rain when we arrived back in Brisbane on Sunday morning too!) but it didn't last long thankfully and the rest of the day was beautiful and sunny! We were even lucky enough to feed some wild dolphins during our stay as well! 

On the morning of Kirsten and Nathans wedding, we woke to a stunning double rainbow and it was such a beautiful way to start the day! The sun was shining and the weather was warm, I don't think we could have asked for anything more!

Kirsten and Nathan are such a beautiful couple and while listening to them reading their vowels, the love they have for each other was evident. 

Thank you again to both of you for allowing us to capture these memories of your special day. 

Enjoy looking at some of the gorgeous images from their day below!

Branell Homestead, Laidley Photographer | Jessica & Aidan

"You awakened in me a desire for adventure and now I yearn for it. Now that my darling is what love should be."

Jessica and Aidan tied the knot recently at Branell Homestead, Laidley and we are so honoured that they allowed us to join them and capture their beautiful day! They were such a fun pair to photograph and it was so beautiful to see the love that they and their three sweet children all had for each other! 

Branell Homestead is such a stunning venue and even though the grass was a little less green than the last time we were there, it still provided us with some gorgeous rustic tones for their photographs.

Enjoy some beautiful images from their special day below!

The Golden Ox Wedding Photographer | Christine & David

After many months of planning, I recently had the honour of photographing my beautiful mum and step dads wedding at The Golden Ox, Margate and the day was absolutely beautiful!

While every wedding that I get to photograph and be apart of is very special to me, there was something extra special about being able to photograph your own families special day, especially one filled with your own children, nephews and nieces - kids at weddings just add a special kind of beauty to the day!

With my daughter and niece as flower girls, my son and nephew as unofficial page boys (because who can trust two crazy 3 year olds to walk down the aisle together and not scream with laughter!) and my other nephew walking my beautiful mum down the aisle, the day was just filled with so much love and sweetness!

As I was photographing the day and running around like a mad woman to make sure everything ran perfectly and on schedule (thank you hugely to my second shooter Belinda for capturing a photo of me fixing up my mums dress mid ceremony), it wasn't until I was home and retouching these images that I really got to see the looks of pure happiness and love on the faces of my mum and step dad. With every new image, bought an even bigger smile!

A huge congratulations to my mum, Christine and step dad, David! Thank you for letting me capture your day and I wish you both so much love and happiness!
