Hillstone St. Lucia wedding - Sophie + Greg - Brisbane wedding photographer - Raw Design Media

My last wedding, for last year was a beauty! I thought i'd better blog it quickly before my wedding season for 2017 starts!

I am so in love with this beautiful wedding at Hillstone St Lucia.  The gorgeous bride was a dream in her Carla Zampatti dress and her girls, oh her girls in their convertible multi-where bridesmaid dresses!!!!!! I am on christmas holidays right now but couldn't help blog this beautiful wedding. 

Picture this; a wedding set in a secret garden, a beautiful courtyard space surrounded by manicured hedging, and standing in the middle of it all an elegant bride in a stunning (two piece) modern, Carla Zampatti wedding dress and her groom wearing a dashing suit, oozing personal style with his long dreadlocks. Looked on lovingly by their closest family and friends. A brief ceremony full of loving looks, quite moments and celebrated with rose petals thrown at the giddy couple.

The reception was just as romantic and intimate, located upstairs in Hillstones' Queenslander style venue in their Rosewood room. Given it's name because of the beautifully polished wooden rosewood floors, complete with its own verandah and sweeping views of a rolling green golf course. Delicate florals in mismatched glass vases (with selected flowers, matching the stunning mixed peonie and floral wedding bouquets, thanks to Flowers by Julia Rose) adorned the simply decorated space, save for a delicious lolly bar set up on entrance and a three tier naked cake topped off in some beautiful florals.  The cocktail style reception was warm, intimate and full of belly laughs from the hilarious and heart felt speeches.

"Dear Bex, Thank you for making our wedding day photography so relaxed and personable. Your presence was truly calming and your beautiful personality was commented on by many of our guests. Thank you again for making our day so special. Love Sophie and Greg"

Put your feet up, grab a cuppa and have a look at what love looks like. Done simply.

Ellie + Flick, dog and owner portrait - Brisbane photographer - Raw Design Media

When I am not in the midst of wedding season and photographing gorgeous bride & grooms, I get to hang out with awesome people like Ellie and her one of a kind Australian Cattle Dog, Flick! I seriously have the best job!!

 These two were the absolute cutest and had the most amazing bond. We pottered around Ellie's parents property stopping in different locations to snap the pair as they hang out and even though it was one of the windiest afternoons imaginable, we got some beautiful shots. 

Originally Ellie was given a Raw Design Media gift card for her birthday to have an  equine photoshoot with her (then)  clydesdale horse, but as luck turned out Ellie and her horse were not a good  fit and we ended up having Ellie's portrait session with her pal Flick.

Flick was a rescue dog, who was born with an unusual birth defect which caused her nose to split down the middle. Ellie welcomed this (then) puppy into her home and not long after, her heart. I think her nose looks like a little love heart don't you!

"Absolutely love Bex's work! Had such a blast being photographed by her she was so lovely and professional! Xx" Ellie

Kholo Botanical Garden - Wedding photographer

I love documenting weddings from start to finish! I get to capture all the moments, from the butterflies whilst getting ready, family seeing the bride in her dress for the first time (in this case the brides dad and grandma, it was beautiful!) walking down the aisle & the groom seeing his bride-to- be for the first time (this always makes me cry!! and then it's hard taking photos through blurry eyes...) the first kiss, sunset photos together as newlyweds, right through to toasts and the first dance. It is such a whirlwind of a day, that moves so quickly. I love that I get to sit down and relive all the moments whilst editing, then handover these 'moments' which will stay with the couple forever. It is such a wonderful feeling.

I love finding just the right moment to capture all of the overflowing emotions of a wedding day. This was just perfect. Katie turning around and noticing her dad standing back watching his beautiful daughter getting ready on her wedding day

Walkabout Creek the Gap, wedding - Brisbane wedding photographer

We are in the middle of wedding season over here at Raw Design Media with weddings booked right up until next year. I am so excited! The variety of people I get to meet and share in their wonderful day is a privileged experience.

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.

Katie + Ethan's Southbank engagement shoot - Brisbane Photographer

I am finally getting around to blogging Katie + Ethan's engagement session from the end of July! That's how behind I am eeeeekkkk... Seeing as they flew in from Townsville for their session, we thought an afternoon in the city was fitting. Ethan may, or may not have known a bit more about Southbank than I did though... :) I hope you guys enjoyed your dinner after.

Equine photo shoot - Raw Design Media

The sun was fading fast for our equine session in this back paddock on the weekend, so we had to work quick. Couple that with a horse who was winding down for the afternoon looking for his dinner. There is always a bit of chaos in the behind the scenes for a photo shoot. Whether it be an unsettled newborn, an active toddler, a hungry pet. In between all the fun though, at just the right moment, we get the shot. In this instance I got loooooooot's of shots :)

Kasey you should do this full time!
