GOLD COAST & BRISBANE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY SERVICES
MEET THE J'ADORE BRISBANE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM
The beauty about weddings is that each has a unique and romantic love story to tell, and we're all about capturing the magic of a moment and the moments in between. The emotions, the drama, the characters, the details. As your story unfolds throughout the day we want to get the best shots possible.
We're not about posing and set ups. We're all about personalities, interactions and atmosphere. We treat all of our wedding couples as friends, not clients. Our young, friendly and personable approach allows the bridal party and guests to relax and be themselves, and this is where the magic happens.
We believe your whole day should be a day to remember and we're passionate about capturing those memories that last a lifetime.
We travel all around Australia & the World with regular weddings in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Adelaide, Gold Coast and Brisbane but where ever you are we LOVE the opportunity to go on a adventure to your town whether it be for photo, video or for both.
What a Journey! I am so lucky to have had so many amazing experiences that has led me to this point. I was just a typical aussie tradie, Working as a Landscaper and enjoyed taking photos of my gardens.
Then Progressed to taking photos of sunrise/sunset and then worked to shooting a few friends in the park and then wasn't long before I got asked to shoot my first wedding for a friend who was on a budget. Well that was 10 years ago now, That day changed my life...
I literally threw my work boots in the bin and have never lifted a shovel since. I had found my calling from that moment on I have devoted my life and who I am to following my passion. Its my way to give back to the world and contribute and it;s something I am so grateful to be a part of.
Building a connection with all of J'adores couples is part of my job even if I don't shoot their wedding from enquiry then working on the vision wiht my clients to organising every aspect of the day to final delivery I am with them every step of the way.
After 5 years of Wedding Photography I decided to take on the challenge of my first Wedding Video. This was a massive moment for me I have never looked back. Being able to capture the stories and emotions right from the nervous tension at the start of the day till the dance moves come out on the dance floor (which I have been known to make a appearance on).
Where do I start? I have been lucky enough to grow up on the beautiful Gold Coast. I have also been a lucky enough document love stories through the use of sound and motion pictures.
My love for film began in my modeling days when I was a teenager, ever since then I have always been interested to get behind the lens. After playing with my best mates camera for a few months I bought my own. After graduating from Bond University my passion for film became stronger and this landed me jobs around Australia and overseas in Bali working along side my best mate.
My love for shooting weddings began shortly after I graduated when Rob asked me to film for a wedding he was photography. Being the youngest in the team it is my job to create a modern cinematic wedding video that makes you cry, laugh and everything in between. There is nothing more amazing then documenting a love story that a couple with treasure forever.
Well where to start, I’m never that good with words and have always been a visual person. From study of graphic design and the arts during those schooling years to purchasing my first camera for a holiday to New Zealand. I’d say that’s where the love for photography struck me. Initially self-taught I eventually looked into various courses, it was during these that I had the privilege of being recommended for my first wedding as a student photographer. From there I worked with good friend of mine capturing those special days of happy couples up and down the eastern coast.
I enjoy all aspects of photography, from landscape to portraiture, from portraiture to events, from events to weddings, each brings their own challenges and it’s the challenges that I strive for. What do I enjoy, that’s simple People, capturing the emotion, the angle, the light, the moment.
And how am I here? Well, I met Rob through a model casting call requesting a model portfolio shoot, friendship formed and now it’s completed a full circle with the model now a photographer. I’m proud to say that I am excited about being apart of the J’adore Team.
It's funny how our childhood habits translate into an occupation. As a teenager I always had the desire to create memorable films for my family/friends to watch. It's such a full filling experience every time to have a final product that had everyone’s experiences incorporated into the videos, and I'm able to do just that through video.
Previously studying Psychology and Journalism at Griffith university, I found my passion for creating journeys not being fulfilled. Upon this discovery, I was lucky enough to know Jess. who gave me some work to do one night. Helping her finish this video, I quickly found my passion returning. To put it briefly, I was in the office a week later starting this incredible journey.
Filming weddings is more than just a job, it's shooting real moments that we are all going to experience or have previously already. As I'm putting together your story, I’m showing you one of the biggest mile stones of your life. Whether it be taking that first step down the aisle, or losing yourself to your favourite song as you look into their eyes. These significant moments are so rare and fleeting,
Jess is a major asset the team - she possesses that unique ability to make people feel comfortable. She has a wealth of experience in the industry and a background in Photo & Video editing and now has decided to pick up a camera. She is a self confessed love addict and will often spend the night doing "research" watching wedding videos and has been known to shed a tear or 2 in the process.
