Tennessee River Place Wedding Photography

Filed under Tennessee River Place Wedding Photography Maria, Bert, and Ruby (their super-duper dog) had us shoot their wedding at Tennessee River Place. Photography has never been easier or more enjoyable. It was a freakishly cold day in November but these two had us laughing so hard it didn't phase us a bit. wedding photography Maria and Bert met while working together as white water river rafting guides. Mother nature brought them together, so it made sense that they chose to get married outside at Tennessee River Place. It's nice that they met doing something they are passionate about, and they go back to the river every year to do it again. They've been kind enough to extend an invitation to us to come and join them. Keep an eye out next year for photographs of us rafting on our blogs from that at some point. The dance floor antics were worth mentioning. A few 'first evers' happened. Heath was licked on the face by a bearded man. That's a great way to make friends, possibly inspired by Ruby... Keep an eye out for the hipster PBR cake and a stupendous amount of cookies. tennessee river place wedding photography riverplace3 riverplace4 riverplace5 riverplace6 tennessee river tennessee river place wedding photography tennessee river place wedding photography chattanooga riverplace10 riverplace11 riverplace12 riverplace13 riverplace14 tennessee river place wedding photography riverplace16 riverplace17 riverplace18 riverplace19 riverplace20 riverplace21 riverplace22 chattanooga wedding photography tennessee river place wedding photography riverplace25 riverplace26 riverplace27 riverplace28 riverplace29 riverplace30 bride and groom wedding photography riverplace32 riverplace33 riverplace34 riverplace35 riverplace36 wedding photography tennessee river place wedding photography riverplace39 riverplace40 copy riverplace41ii riverplace42ii tennessee river place wedding photography tennessee river place wedding photography riverplace45 riverplace46 riverplace48ii riverplace49 riverplace50 riverplace51 tennessee river place wedding photography tennessee river place wedding photography riverplace54 riverplace55 riverplace56 riverplace57 riverplace58 riverplace59 riverplace60 riverplace61 riverplace62 riverplace63 riverplace64 riverplace65 riverplace66 riverplace67 riverplace68 riverplace69 riverplace70 riverplace71 riverplace72 riverplace73 riverplace74 riverplace75 riverplace76 riverplace77 riverplace78 riverplace79 riverplace80 riverplace81 riverplace82 riverplace83 riverplace84 riverplace86 riverplace87 riverplace88 riverplace89 riverplace90 riverplace91 riverplace92 riverplace93 riverplace94 riverplace95 riverplace96 riverplace97 riverplace98 riverplace99 riverplace100 riverplace101 riverplace102

Wedding Photographs in Maleny Queensland

filed under wedding photographs maleny queensland

Hannah and Cameron got married at a great time and place for light. Winter in Australia. Yes it was cool-ish in the shade, but in the sun it's a special kind of warmth. The light comes in at a wonderful angle, and there isn't a time of the day that the light looks too harsh. Summer weddings have such harsh sunlight that it's crucial to plan outdoor ceremonies in the shade or late afternoon. It's amazing how different the light is in SoCal or the South (US), it's softer there all year round.


It was an honor to be there for Han and Cam. The groomsmen were hilarious, especially the best man who chose to make fun of your's truly in his speech. There has only been one guest at a wedding that is more memorable for me this year, and that guest licked my face on the dance floor - no joke! I had never been to Maleny in Queensland, let alone to photograph a wedding. The unusual mountains jut right out of an otherwise quite flat landscape - a dramatic backdrop that is iconic of the region. I flew all the way from Chattanooga in Tennessee just to shoot it, and then I flew all the way back. A long flight and some seriously confused circadian rhythms but I'm very happy I made the trip. Ceremony and reception location: Tiffany's i

Tocal Wedding, Brooke and Konrad

Filed under Tocal Weddings


Because this wedding was so much fun, I'll have to relax in this description. I'll try to not sugar coat it from the start. So to start on a balanced note, this Tocal wedding day was super hot. Super duper humid. Sweaty. But it was just so lovely that everyone got swept away with the joy-train. People are often very worried about the weather on a wedding day. Over and over again we see days like this. Transcendent! Take a look and let us know if you have a Tocal wedding in the making. Or more specifically, a wedding at the beautiful Mindaribba House. Our bride and groom, Brooke and Konrad are good friends of ours. It was such a treat to be there for this lovely day. #broradforever!

Clicking on the title at the beginning of the blog post will make it appear at the bottom if you don't see it. We'd like to thank the staff at Mindaribba house and all the friends and family of Brooke and Konrad. Extra special thanks to Ben with his amazing floral designs. Check out his stuff at . Thanks too to the beautiful region around Tocal. Wedding paradise. Before I forget, thanks also to Sam Vincent of White Lane Studio. He did the video on the day and it's always a pleasure having him around. He has a dry sense of humour so he'll probably think I'm joking when he reads this. If you ever hire him or see him at a wedding, take heed, be warned. The dryness and sarcasm is deadly. Thanks for reading and looking.

Tennessee Wedding Photographs: The Spears

Filed under: Tennessee Wedding Photographs Old McDonald had a farm. It was the perfect spot for summertime nuptials. We very much enjoyed spending the day on the family farm in Tennessee with these two and their circle. The ceremony took place in front of the house under the shade of the giant oak (or maple or sycamore!) tree. The minister had known them for years and was teary-eyed as he solemnized their union. There is a distinct possibility that onlooking cows shed a tear or two. There was so much love on the McDonald farm that day. Also so much dancing! The band from Nashville, Scat Singers (website here), was an all time favourite. We've never seen a bride dominate the floor with such enthusiasm! The mother/daughter dance was the highlight of the day for us. They are completely free spirited. We'd do it all over again if we could. Thanks for having us guys!

Yarramalong Valley Wedding Photography

Filed under Yarramalong Valley Wedding Photography


Our friends Adam and Laura said their "I do's" in a quaint chapel in the woods. Laura's fiery red hair set the tone for the day - FUN! We loved every detail of their wedding and were so honored to be the wedding photographers. The miniature pony was a very fitting surprise as Laura affectionately refers to Adam as "pony". Then there was the dog that showed up on the dance floor. This wedding had it all: babies, animals, suspenders, rad cars, fun people and a steamy romance. Oh, and cupcakes!

Hunter Valley Wedding Photography

huntervalley1 We had the pleasure of meeting Andrew briefly years ago, so when his beautiful fiancé Janelle asked us to be her wedding photographers, we jumped at the opportunity. Photographing weddings in the Hunter Valley is always a joy, but it's extra special and a lovely compliment when asked by people in the community you grew up in. Even though we'd never met Janelle until the day of her wedding, we got along very well on the day, and we've received lovely feedback from her about the wedding photographs below. Janelle's silk wedding dress was flown over from New York, and is quite simply incredible. Such a eye catching fabric with the way it moves - just so great to photograph. For the photographers who read this, we shot this wedding on film and digital, and graded the colors (or 'colours' in 'Australian') of the digital to match the film photos. This way we get the convenience of digital, with the colour of film that is impossible to beat! Thanks for having us along Janelle and Andrew (aka Gert).
