Hi all Rob here, spending the day with Shane & Sarai was a absolute pleasure. For the day it was just going to be a celebrant & a few friends for the ceremony as neither of them are from Australia & had planed to have a 2nd wedding in Mexico at some stage thus making it a much more intimate wedding day.
Shortly after the ceremony it was to be just the 3 of us for the rest of the day which I was really looking forward to. Meeting a few days prior to the wedding which really does make it so much easier on the day as we talk about what sort of images they want & like, also speaking about how much they like me to get involved as some couples prefer me to do a fair bit of posing work with the and others are happy for me to just fade into the background & document the day.
With these 2 it was great as Sarai was full of energy & had plenty of ideas for the images she liked so often she would pick the spot & I'd find the best light in that area. Wearing a gorgeous dress by Herz Design Studio and flowers by Moss n Stone Florist Sarai looked beautiful, as did her wonderful partner Shane.
I have added a collection of images from the day that I really feel tell the story of not just the day but also the love these 2 share, it was very clear the bond they have and the amount of excitement they share about the future. I also love hearing the story of how it all began & the special moments that lead them to this point. There story involved Shane travelling across the world to see Sarai, winning her heart & inviting her to come live in Australia.
Following the ceremony which was in Labrador with the Broadwater as a scenic backdrop we headed up to Mount Tamborine which is with out a doubt one of my favourite places to take wedding & engagement photography on the Gold Coast. Being that there was only 3 of us & no real time limit we just stopped at a few different spots along the way, this meant we got some great variety of images, including the Mt Tamborine Botanical gardens.
I would love to hear what you think of this collection & also maybe which image is your favourite?
