Diana + Chris, Sunshine Coast Engagement Shoot - Raw Design Media - Wedding Photographer

This Engagement shoot at the Sunshine Coast has me oohing and ahhing all over again! I love when couples are adventurous and are up for something different. When Chris and Diana asked to have their Engagement shoot at the Sunshine Coast Pine forest, and I suggested tagging on a short hike up a mountain to capture a sunset after, I wasn’t expecting for them to say yes. I am so glad they did!

When people book me in to Photograph a wedding, and their engagement shoot, I always hear things like “we don’t like being in front of the camera”, “my fiance hates photos”, “I don’t know what to do in front of the camera”, or “I always feel awkward in front of the camera”. Don’t worry, I get it. In fact, I hear these phrases so often, it’s unusual for me to get a booking without one of the phrases tagged on. It is my job to make you look awesome in front of the camera. Yes I have some kick arse equipment, yes I can read the light like a pro, yes I am friendly and love to have a laugh with you, yes the images will be hand edited, individually after with care… What I can also do, is read body language and get the most out of my clients during a session by giving them certain verbal cues, to help them relax. Getting them to stand a certain way, or whisper something in her ear, or close your eyes, or move your chin towards the sun, or hold hands, whatever it takes, to ensure I get the shots I need to handover a gallery after our session. Remember it is up to your photographer to produce beautiful photos. Let them do all the work.

James + Jemmas Rydges Southbank wedding - Raw Design Media - Brisbane wedding photographer

This time of year is renowned for it's storms and unpredictive weather.. It had been threatening to rain the whole morning of Jemma + James' wedding and seemed to be holding off... That was until Jemma and her bridesmaids had to get out of the car 😮 then and only then did it decide to bucket down! Only when the girls were safely inside did it stop. Lucky Jemma was one of the most relaxed brides I have ever had the pleasure of photographing and it didn't seem to phase her. Bex x

Brisbane Wedding photographer, Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer, Gold Coast Wedding Photographer - Raw Design Media

 

I get asked by clients all of the time, what style of photography do I create? Why should we chose you as our photographer? I used to think my style was very cinematic and environmentally charged. Don't get me wrong, while I love nothing more than capturing a dramatic sunset in a big open field, or on top of a mountain - watching the light dance around my gorgeous couples while I click away (far out I really do love these shots..) I would have to say that my style of photography is candid. Yep, I love picking a spot in the corner of the room and hiding away so people forget I am there and can act naturally. It sounds plain when you write it... So I made a short movie :)

Coochiemudlo Island engagement shoot - Raw Design Media Wedding Photographer

When your beautiful Bride-to-be has to fly out the next day and you have no other opportunity to reschedule their engagement shoot, you have to shoot rain or shine. Which is exactly what we did, hiding under umbrellas and a useless rotunda (when the rain is coming in sideways). I have to admit it was so much fun, I couldn't stop giggling with this beautiful couple. This gorgeous lady with her hair and make up done, her beautiful dress and sandals, kept asking me if she could carry my bag full of equipment and held my brolly when we were walking over the wet beach! (Of course her wonderful Groom-to-be asked too, countless times). I can't wait to shoot your wedding in a months time, it's going to be stunning 😍

Dale + Blair Woodford Wedding - Brisbane wedding photographer Raw Design Media

I am completely honoured to have been be part of this beautiful bride and grooms Wedding day on family property in Woodford. It rained for the entire day, sometimes heavy, sometimes light. Making the most of what we had, we would rush outside with umbrellas when it was light and shoot the bridal party, only to rush back in as it poured down again. I have never had so much fun, these guys were amazing. Thanks for allowing me to be part of your beautiful day Bex x

Jemma + James Dalby Engagement shoot - Brisbane Wedding Photographer

I was over the moon when Jemma and James asked if I would travel to Dalby to photograph their engagement shoot on their farm. I love travelling and photographing in new destinations and this farm was simply breathtaking. I knew as soon as I drove up the old dusty road and parked out the front of the property, that the shoot would be special. Jemma and James then came out to greet me, all smiles and welcoming and I instantly felt we were a perfect match for each other. I can't wait for their wedding this March!

Leana + Kinaz Stamford Plaza wedding - Raw Design Media Brisbane wedding photographer

Leana + Kinaz  have a beautiful love story that started when they met as young teenagers and blossomed when they were young adults. Both coming from Syria meant that they would always have two weddings so they could celebrate with all of their friends and family. Their main wedding was held in Syria where hundreds of friends, relatives and family celebrated  the young couples love. Their second wedding was held at the Stamford Plaza here in Brisbane and I was lucky enough to be involved in it. A gorgeous afternoon with the couples nearest and dearest celebrating in the heart of our gorgeous city.

At the end of September was Natasha + Cory's Wedding day. It was only the second time I have met the beautiful couple & yet I couldn't stop laughing and had to fight back tears during all of the speeches. Sneak peaks of their day.
