the mcguire family | video and photos

This little project was literally a year in the making. Tammy contacted me prior to the birth of her second bub, however, as it turned out, Lani was born only days before my Farley and anyone with a baby knows how quickly time can get away from you! So a week out from their first birthdays, we finally met and captured this small snapshot into the life of the McGuire Family; Mum, Dad, 2 beautiful girls and 3 dogs! 

It has been a while since doing any family videography, as I kept my workload this year very minimal, but spending the morning with this gorgeous little family definitely reignited my passion for it. How wonderful is it that the girls will have this video to look back on as they grow.  Check out the video below: 


I've also been enjoying building on my photography skills and was thrilled at how achievable it was to capture the same moments as still images as well. Here's a small selection below: 

elleri & roby | wedding film

What a way to finish on a high! Elleri and Roby's Maleny Manor wedding was my last one for the year and my gosh, it was epic! Everything came together so perfectly; the weather, the stunning location, the music, all the beautiful details and not the mention how amazing Elleri and Roby are. Elleri is just the sweetest and Roby, well I've never seen a groom display such a vast array of emotions - from tearing up as Elleri walked down the aisle to literally being the life of the party and owning the dance floor. And speaking of dance floor, make sure you watch until the end to see the just how amazing it was.  When I saw Aaron from Cut A Rug  I was so excited! I've shot a few weddings with him DJing the reception and it turns into a nightclub! He's the best!

It was also wonderful to catch up with one of my past couples, Courtney & Dayne who were married at Tangalooma last year. (Courtney was Elleri's maid of honour and vise versa) And I had the pleasure of shooting alongside Billeta Wood; who also shot Courtney and Dayne's wedding. It's so awesome to be able to reconnect with past vendors and familiar faces.

brooke & jason | wedding short film

Brooke and Jason celebrated their love with a stunning ceremony and reception at Lightspace Brisbane. They were so warm, welcoming and relaxed - I loved how they did a 'first look' and photos at their house before the ceremony. It was such a wonderful occasion for all their family and friends and it was an honour to be part of it all.

 

Congratulations Brooke & Jason xx

samantha & trent | wedding short film

It was such a pleasure to witness the love shared between Samantha and Trent; it was so well articulated in their heartfelt vows and the way Trent looked at his beautiful bride was so adorable. Gabbinbar Homestead was the perfect backdrop for their love story... such a breathtaking location!

Congratulations Samantha & Trent!

brittany & chris | wedding highlights

Brittany and Chris are truly a beautiful couple and their wedding day was simply stunning. They held both their intimate ceremony and reception at Eves On The Rive, and created such a relaxed vibe for their big day. 

Thank you so much for having me capture your day, Brittany & Chris. I'm so blessed to share these amazing milestones and help create everlasting memories.

roxy & sam | wedding highlights

The gorgeous Roxy and Sam had planned an epic North Stradbroke Island beach wedding but unforunately the weather had other plans. Their wedding weekend coincided with an extreme weather event which saw them relocate the ceremony and reception to inside the Surf Life Saving Club. But Roxy and Sam didn't let a little rain (well, a lot..a cyclone to de precise) dampen their spirits or their love; they exchanged the most beautifully heartfelt vows and celebrated with family and friends well into the night. 

 

brooke & ben | wedding films

Ben was one smart groom; he came up with possibly the best wedding gift for his glowing bride Brooke - a surprise wedding film! The absolute ultimate way to commemorate your big day. Brooke had no idea Ben had booked me as their wedding videographer until I arrived on the day. ( You can see the big reveal in the Feature Film ) Ben managed to keep it all under wraps with the help of Brooke's sister and Maid of Honour Tammy.

But Brooke had an even bigger surprise to reveal to their guests later that night... that she and Ben are expecting! 

What an amazing wedding to be apart of! I know I say it everything, but I get to work with the loveliest couples and meet some wonderful families. it was also a lot of fun to work alongside photographer Paul from Finch and Oak. Brooke and Ben choose Stella Maris Catholic Church for their ceremony and held their stunning reception in The Grange at Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove
