Blame it on the rain {Brisbane Event Photographer}

Your planning a party, invites sent, rsvp's returned, caterers booked, renovations on a huge back deck complete, decorations strung, band're all set, what could go wrong? 

Ah yes, it, not 'just' pours..... ALL day and ALL night.... The event below was held the same night as this one. It was just as well they both had undercover locations planned. 

Thanks to the aforementioned back deck at this stunning Chandler property the rain really wasn't such a bad thing as it was able to accommodate everyone without a drop of rain being felt. The rain aside, Gigi looked to have a wonderful night of fun, food and friends while celebrating her birthday in her stunning home recently. It was an extra special birthday celebration seeing as it was Gigi's FIRST EVER birthday party! Better late than never I say.... Happy Birthday Gigi x

New Product to bring out the best in your photos! Acrylic Photo Tiles....

There is nothing better than seeing images in print displayed around your home. We all have a pile of 'to print' images on our computer. You know the ones, they are in that 'one day' folder that we never get around to actually printing. Well to encourage you to drag them out and display them around your home I'm introducing a new product to Splash which looks STUNNING no matter what the image. These tiles give an image a luminescent, floating, three dimensional effect and the tiles are freestanding, so no hanging is required. You also have the option to print on metallic paper which really makes your photos pop!

The tiles come in four sizes:
Mini -  

As an introductory offer I am offering 2 FREE mini sized Acrylic Tiles (valued at $60) with every booking made until the end of September. All you need to do is mention the Acrylic Tiles when you book. If you already have images you would like to take to another level on these tiles I am more than happy to arrange printing for you. Contact me at for more details and pricing.

A celebration of years {Brisbane Event Photographer}

I personally know a number of friends who don't like celebrating birthdays. They avoid at all costs letting people know it's their birthday or if someone asks what they have planned for their birthday it will usually be replied with "Um, nothing, so anyway....*insert change of topic*".

Me? I'm the opposite, I love celebrating birthdays, not just mine but other peoples birthdays as well. Why? For me it's not about the gifts, it's about celebrating all that has happened over the last year of your life, (the good bits along with the bad bits) with family and friends. For me its about letting my friends know how much they have meant to me over the past year, how much their support, friendship, fun times, hard times and just being there has helped me get through the year. Birthday's don't have to be a big expensive celebration. They can simply be a intimate BBQ with scrummy food and a few drinks. It doesn't matter what the celebration entails, as long as you take time out to celebrate. Life is short. Yes, we have all heard it before FAR too many times but we have heard it so often because it's TRUE. Life is busy, life is crazy, life sometimes gets hard, life gets in 'the way' and stops us taking time to appreciate what we have. We need to stop and appreciate what we have right here and least once a year (although I believe it should happen much much more often).

The above is why I love being involved in birthdays, even if it's work! Below are just a few images of Marina's recent 40th Birthday. The Martini Bar at the Story Bridge Hotel is a great venue to celebrate just about anything. The rain pelting down outside this particular evening didn't dampen anyones spirits. Marina was surrounded by her nearest and dearest and by the time I left, everyone was just starting to kick into party mode with the DJ belting out a few tunes. One particular guest told me that they had another event to go to that night however they had decided they were going to be late as they didn't want to leave!
Happy 40th Marina, wish you many more years ahead to celebrate! xx

Love the thought of someone else capturing all the goings on at an event to allow you to relax and enjoy the night yourself? Contact me for availability and a quote at

A Windaroo Wedding {Brisbane Wedding Photographer}

Well it has become obvious that I'm feeling a black & white vibe at the moment as I've just noticed this is my third post in a row that only has black & white images. And hey, what's not to like (LOVE) about black & white?

This lovely wedding was held at Windaroo Cottage on a lovely Saturday afternoon. It had been raining for most of the week however this day, the clouds cleared and the sun shone! I love weddings, the emotion, the fun, the gatherings, the laughs. Everyone is there to celebrate and more importantly celebrate a union of two people they care about. As I mentioned last month in this post, it the little details that I love watching and at weddings, there are a heaps of those little details or moments. The unposed moments and the quick glances that capture the feeling of the day. They are the images that bring back all 'those' memories as soon as you look at them again, even if it's years later. 

Carol & Bill were the two very lovely people everyone had gathered to celebrate on this day. I was fortunate to meet mid last year at a very fun event featuring Suprises, Strippers and plenty of Smiles. The day was a very intimate ceremony and very relaxed, another word I love to associate with weddings! Congratulations Carol & Bill, wishing you many more years of happiness together x
