Australian Outback Wedding Photography – Dougal and India

 

Dougs and Indi met each other in the city but both grew up in the country.

So what better place to get married than out in the little country town of Glen Innes. The connection they have because of their country roots is something special. They both hope to move back to the country soon, and why not I say, it’s beautiful out there, calming, and where these two lovers are most at home.

India’s awesome Gold pumps are by Aquazzura and her gown is by Yulia McAuley Couture, I have never seen a dress like it, stunning!

Guys thank you for having me along, for being so hospitable and so relaxed on what was such a huge day!

I loved the experience of a wool shed wedding reception, straw and festoon lights everywhere. Also Indi, your parents’ property is amazing, congrats to your mum for all the work in the gardens to get it so perfect

 

Hope you like this sneak peek of what is to come keeps you happy for now.

More to come soon.

Brisbane Wedding Photographer – Best of 2018

 

Hello, Matt here.

2018 was one crazy year!

Déus Photography is now a thing of the past, Light Pictures was born. It was a forced name and branding change really, but so be it, I like our new handle!

 I will be hones thought, it greatly impacted us a lot. After the previous year of being booked to capacity for the first time, that all of a sudden got flipped on it’s head and 2018 has, well, been a real struggle – we have just kept things alive. We basically had to start a new business from scratch with only our experience and portfolio to bring along – a very soul challenging time.  I can also tell you that single-handedly managing a business whilst looking after 2 young kids part of every week sure keeps my hands full…and can push things to it’s limits!

I love my two tykes Louis and Layla so much. It’s amazing being able to do what I do, being able to be a work at home dad, being able to spend time with them in these precious years, It’s perfect! So all things considered, I’ve decided to drop my hours for all this crazy Photography stuff down to part time…for a while. 🙂

The hugely positive side of 2018 meant I have had the privilege of trust from many amazing couples, traveled to some beautiful parts of our country, been a part of some extremely amazing days…one month recently I drove 4000+km’s!

Looking back, my work sure has come a long way since my first wedding around 9 years ago. I really am proud of what I have accomplished, and with everything that has been going on. I’m proud of what I have to show off from what really isn’t a heap of weddings, but the memories I have given to all my love birds out there in marriage bliss makes me smile the most.

Thanks to everyone in my life for your support. Big thanks to my sister Hannah, who had a baby only a few months ago – I’m looking forward to you shooting along side me again when you can! Thank you to my brother Damien for moving interstate and in with me, having you here as a friend and for support has meant the world to me. Thanks to my mate Pete Oakman, my 2nd shooter, road trip partner and general partner in crime, your support and help and talent has been priceless…a fair few of the pics belong to you bud!
I also want to thank “The World”, for Symmetry, kisses, dresses, shoes, Fuji, talent, Love!

Oh, and who could forget my wonderful Mum! Love you Mum.

2018 has been a fun ride, challenging, but trust me, I remind myself every day of how lucky I am to be able to do what I do, and to have been blessed with such an awesome family.

I am eagerly looking forward to 2019 with my chin up and hope in my heart. Everyone spread the word, we are not going anywhere and I/we want to be a part of more wonderful journeys, for years to come!

 

Below are a bunch of snapshots in time, all from REAL weddings. They all tell a story and bring back amazing memories, and I think they all belong on a wall…..somewhere.

 

 

There are some beautiful locations up above that’s for sure, but if you are planning a wedding or know someone who is, have a look at a great feature we have done on Venues in Byron Bay, just over HERE.

Coffs Harbour Wedding – Alex and Rachel – a few frames

Coffs Harbour Wedding – Alex and Rachel at Villa Vivanté

 

Last weekend Rachel and Alex were married in a very beautiful part of the world, up in Villa Vivanté, a stunning spot all the way up on the top of the Coffs Harbour hilltops.

Along side them were their two beautiful little girls, gum-nut babies!

Rachel and Alex chose a first look up at the Villa. Alex was in shock as his stunning bride Rachel walked down the stairs to him.

We were able to sneak away down to the beach for a couple of pics, just the two of them in their lovely space, with each other.

We then headed back up to the Villa for the very emotional ceremony, touching and charismatic words by Alison Bartlett.

…and then of course, a huge party that went all night long.

 

Thank you, Rachel and Alex, for the privilege of being able to be a part of your epic day in paradise.

More of the whole wedding, and some of the best Coffs Harbour wedding photography I have seen, will be coming your way very soon, but for now a no doubt eagerly awaited few pics of the day.

Country wedding in Dubbo NSW – Mick and Amy

Country wedding in Dubbo NSW – Mick and Amy – a few frames

 

It was “LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT” for these two when they met.

Amy was working with explosives, and Mick was a driller.

Mick couldn’t talk to Amy for a whole year, he was just too shy, despite Amy’s efforts! He would walk away from her!

They slowly saw how much they were alike, that they adored each others qualities, and eventually became good buds.

Mick called Amy “the bomb chick!”

When Mick was forced to move to the other side of the country for work, it got to them both, they couldn’t live without each other.

Amy chased him all the way to W.A.

The rest is history. The epic backyard party in the super friendly country town of Dubbo NSW was a party I will not forget.

My whole trip and my experience with these wonderful bunch of people, is something I am very thankful for.

Amy and Mick, it’s still explosive, as much as I can see love can be.

…and as for the drilling…

 

Hope these few keep you keen for a while until more come soon.

Thank you for letting me be a part of such a memorable day, and weekend.

 

…Also, everyone keep an eye out for dinosaurs around here, they may pop up at any time!

Byron Bay Wedding Photography – Brett and Kirsty – teasers

 

It was a romantic rainy day in paradise the day Kirsty and Brett were married, their gorgeous kids aside them all the way, with

There was lots of emotional tears all around, the rain made it such an intimate gathering.

The Earth house in Clunes, Byron Bay gave us a spectacular backdrop with clouds rolling through the valleys off in the distance.

Kirsty wore a stunning Grace Loves Lace dress and her elegant and very fragrant Bouquet was by the talented French Petal. The energy was high as the rain came down, thanks to the always charismatic Ben Carlyle.

Everyone dined on lovely food by The Fig Tree and danced the day away to great tunes by North Coast Entertainment.

Thank you guys and also to all your friends and families, for having Pete and I along on such a wonderful day.

I hope these few teasers captured just a brief glimpse of what your day was all about.

More to come soon.
