Brisbane Wedding Photographer – Best of 2018

 

Hello, Matt here.

 

2018 was one chaotic but amazing year!

Déus Photography is no more, Light Pictures was born – a forced name and branding change due to some greedy heartless people out there, after 9 years. I will be honest, it has greatly impacted everything. After the previous year of being booked out, 2018 has been a real struggle with bookings – I have just kept things alive. I basically had to start a new business from scratch with only my experience and portfolio to bring along – a very soul challenging time. Personal and family changes outside of my business also impact everything, in all my families’ lives, on a day to day basis. I can tell you that single-handedly managing a business whilst looking after 2 young kids sure can push everything to it’s limits!

On the positive side, 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 photography sure has come a long way since my first wedding 9 years ago. I am proud of what I have accomplished with everything that has been going on, proud of what I have to show, and the memories I have given to all my love birds out there in marriage bliss.

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 thank “The World” for Symmetry, kisses, dresses, shoes, Fuji, talent, Love!

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.
I am eagerly looking forward to 2019 with my chin up and hope in my heart. Everyone spread the word, I’m 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.

 

 

Some beautiful locations above that’s for sure, but there is also a great feature we have done on another epic part of NSW just over HERE. Please, do have a look.

Byron Bay Wedding Photography – Brett and Kirsty – teasers

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.
