Hunter Valley Prestigious Wedding at the Chateau Elan

Rarely in life do we take the opportunity to really express our lust for life and love for those nearest and dearest. Lisa & James weren’t wasting another moment at their stunning wedding at the Chateau Elan in NSW’s Hunter Valley. 

 Like something from a bond movie, the groom and groomsmen arrived via helicopter - It was something the groom James had always wanted to do. Gathered around the whiskey bar, the boys calmed the jitter of excitement in quiet connection.   

The bride shone in a stunning white gown and the expression of love between her, her son Alex and James drew a tear to the eye.  Making the most beautiful of memories, this day was truly a celebration. 

A wedding isn’t simply a ceremony of spoken promises and lavish party, it’s a declaration of love for your partner and family. It’s an opportunity to share the most joyful of days with the people you want in your future, for the hope you share and an expression of joy for this moment, today. 

 Live a passionate life and make your wedding a true example of the beauty of living. In celebration of joy, love, connection and adventure, a wedding can mean so much more than the exchange of vows – why not tick an item off on your bucket list? 

 What do you need the perfect excuse to do? and why not have it captured in time with stunning fine art film photography at your wedding? 

 Please comment below - I’d love to hear what your dream would be.

2 minute noodles again? 

 We’ve all heard that first impressions count and in todays saturated market, a second glance from a potential client can mean the difference between 2 minute noodles and lobster for your next meal. 

 Ok so that may be a little dramatic, but if you think about your own purchasing behaviour and what draws you to look into a specific product or service, I’ll bet that 9 times out of 10 it’s something about their pictures that catches your eye. 

 When presented with an opportunity to create beautiful branding photography in fine art film, Ha Tran from Idyll Flower Studio jumped at the chance to communicate directly with her dream clients. “I believe captivating and meaningful images is the way to go in this day and age in order for me to show up professionally”. 

 When looking for a branding photographer it’s important that they show your personality and talent and that their aesthetic speaks to you. You’ll want a photographer that understands your message, who cares about you and your business and provides you with beautiful images that can be used across multiple mediums. “I now have so many images that I can continue to use for so long, that can continue to elevate my brand. “ – Ha Tran

EARTHY ETHEREAL COASTAL INSPIRATION - SYDNEY - CENTRAL COAST NSW

Inspired by moody light, colours and textures of the Sydney and Central Coast NSW coastline, this shoot served as the perfect prelude to the beauty of the coming Winter. Our vision for this shoot was to bring a raw yet elegant style to the coast. To set the beautiful ethereal tone, we chose an earthy palette that came through not only in the wild and unruly florals but also the natural tones in the surroundings. Utilising the coastal breeze as inspiration, it was all about whisking away the bride into a celestial daydream.
