Evelyn + Jeremy composite

This composite image of Evelyn and Jeremy was taken at the park next to their house. The bark on the eucalyptus tree that Evelyn climbed on looks cartoon-like and I thought it was the perfect for the serenade setting.evejeremy-composite3-1

Evelyn + Jeremy

Such a wonderful couple, each with their own wealth of cultural background. El Salvador, French, Australian – and now married! Eve and Jeremy were easy to photograph, they are so photogenic! On the menu was Cumbia, French and Spanish and a wedding cake that Evelyn made herself.

Varvara + Maxim

Varvara + Maxim are such beautiful people and great friends… I was happy to be invited as a guest rather than the wedding photographer because the Japanese beers just kept on coming! Awesome :)

Erica + Steve – Sherwood Arboretum

Love conquers all. I am an avid believer that you don’t need a huge budget to have a beautiful wedding. All you really need is each other, close friends and family. Erica and Steve are such a beautiful couple, genuine and honest. It was a real pleasure being in their company for this shoot.

Gabbinbar Homestead Wedding

Gabbinbar Homestead Wedding – Jez and Chris are a truly beautiful couple. We headed to Gabbinbar Homestead a couple of months prior to the wedding so we could get a “feel for it”. I ran some ideas by Jez (i.e. the Kung-Fu bride shot and the video stills) and she immediately said she was keen to do them. How wonderful is that?!!? I told her I wanted to highlight her and Chris’ passion for TaeKwon Do and capture the moment in a timeless composed photograph.

We were a bit saddened to find out that peacocks lose their beautiful plumage in a process called “molting” – just like a deciduous tree (bet you didn’t know that). Say what?? But don’t worry, they grow back when they want to mate and strut their stuff.

But enough about peacocks, this was going to be Jez and Chris’ day and no featherless peafowls would spoil it. I have photos to prove it.

Kung-Fu Bride

I’ve never seen anyone who could jump so high in a wedding dress – not only that but to be able to do a Kung-Fu kick at the same time – that’s pretty impressive. You have to say, that’s pretty amazing, being able to stand there and do a flying kick in a wedding dress. I’d never be able to do that!

Puti and Johnny at The Boulevard Gardens

 Puti and Johnny at The Boulevard Gardens

It was 35 degrees celsius on this beautiful last day of January 2015, and Brisbane once again really lived up to its reputation and delivered weather worthy of any other hot summer’s day. “Beautiful one day, perfect the next…” – it was hot, it was steamy, it was absolutely breathtakingly fabulous.

The Boulevard Gardens is the venue where the big event took place. Floral dresses and Hawaiian shirts ruled on this day, so did the Haka, beautiful gardens and love. Oh yes, I forgot to mention about the love… it was present and everyone knew it. You could feel it in the air… These two love birds looked amazing together. I told Johny that Puti looked like she just came out of the Miss Niue pageant contest – she was absolutely stunningly gorgeous.

I genuinely love the island vibe – everyone is so friendly and smiling. They really know how to make you feel welcome and that you belong to the group.

Thanks for this fantastic day Puti and Johnny at The Boulevard Gardens!! All the best from Papa Gomez :)
