Byron Bay Wedding Photography – Fig Tree Restaurant – Junior and Kate

 

Kate and Junior met on the dance floor back in 2010. They danced until the “Ugly lights” came on. There was a spark.

3 years later they finally caught up for a coffee, and after a few years more, all their messaging back and forth rekindled the spark.

Kate went through some major surgery and Junior was always there for her, she knew he was The One!

“Deep down we just knew it would end in forever!”

A little boy later, and with another bub on the way, we skip to now.

 

This winter’s day, Junior and Kate were married, at the beautiful Fig Tree in Ewingsdale, Byron Bay, Australia.

It was a stunning day, a fairy-tale wedding, under a huge fig tree with a backdrop of the Byron Lighthouse and coastline off in the distance.

 

Thanks to Kate and Junior for having Pete and I along on your big day, for the trust you had in us to capture the love you indeed show for each other.

I have just chosen a few of my faves to show off for you as a sneak peek for now, but more will come very soon.

Love, Matt.

Byron Bay Wedding Photographer – Mike and Joanne

 

As a Byron Bay Wedding Photographer it doesn’t get more amazing than the day Joanne married Mike, on Clarkes Beach in Byron Bay.

We had sun, clouds, rain, sun, sunset, waves, magic light, these two are blessed.

The always charismatic Ben Carlyle kept the spirit high as the rain came down in the ceremony. Everyone held strong though and the clouds passed.

We took a stroll down the beach for a few pics after the ceremony. We managed to find some rocks with the waves crashing in the background, it made for a stunning backdrop.

After the sunset, everyone partied the night away at Beach, Mike strutting his skills on the guitar.

It was all one epic rollercoaster ride. Jo and Mike, thanks for having Hannah and I along on your day in Byron Bay.

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.

Blue Mountains Wedding – Dave and Ash – Megalong Valley

 

It was lovely to get back to the area I was born and grew up in, the stunning Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

Ashley married David at the beautiful Dryridge Estate Winery out in the Megalong Valley, with The Great Dividing Range surrounding them.

The weather was chaotic yet addictive, windy and calm, rainy with stars to finish.

Ash is wearing an elegant beaded gown by one of my favourite designers Karen Willis Holmes, Ash what a stunner you are!!

Dave is in a very cool, blue M.J. Bale Suit, and he and the boys have custom Peggy and Finn Ties and pockets with Australian native prints, matching the handmade bouquets with all of the Aussie fauna included.

Dave’s wedding band is extremely custom made by Zoe Pook, featuring a surround of meteorite and Ash’s fingerprint hand engraved into the middle…what a ring!

Ash and Dave, thanks for having me along on your wonderful day, for the trust and inspiration, for having such welcoming and hospitable families and friends. I will never forget your day.

 

I hope you like these few teasers for now. More to come soon.
