Fine Art Wedding Albums

I love books. Truly. I love the entire tangible experience of holding a story and having it come alive before me. I know that there are so many new-fangled Kindle-type ways to read, but I love the feel and the experience of holding something in my hands. With little children I also love the experience of sharing a story with another person and talking through the moments that arise. It’s not hard to guess the segue here: your wedding is a story of more than one amazing day. Within that story there are shared glances, sneaky smiles, teary congratulations and the details that define your style and connection.  Fine Art Wedding Albums honour the story of your day. fine art wedding albums All our albums are designed in-house. Why is this you ask? Frankly we are the ones who you have entrusted with capturing your day. By the time your wedding day arrives we will have connected many times and probably shared stories and maybe a coffee (or two). We have been with you throughout the planning and on your day. I think it would be a little odd to out-source the “telling” of this story to someone you have never met. I’m sure you agree. We work with you to create an album that you love and our process is a really unique one.

fine art wedding albums Our Albums are hand-made and are archival and museum grade. We assure you that your album will be beautiful for that first time you get it out to share with your grandchildren.

fine art wedding albums Our Fine Art Wedding Albums are also available for parents in a smaller sizes. And oh boy they are cute!

fine art wedding albums Without a doubt I honestly believe that your wedding, your relationship and the story you are going to share with your children and grandchildren deserves to be tangible. It deserves to be quality. It deserves to be lovingly designed by your photographers. I just don’t think that opening up a bottle of red on your first anniversary and snuggling up for a romantic reflection of your wedding day is validated by flicking through images on a screen.

Many couples will even order an album to be prepared in anticipation of their First Anniversary – I love the romance in this idea.

We can not express the beauty of Julia’s creations and when she matched these with styling by Moments in Vintage there was that moment where you have to stop and soak it all up. _mrp7612 Sunshine Coast vintage Wedding Photography Sunshine Coast vintage Wedding Photography Matt Rowe Photography This Earl Grey beauty is for hire from Moments in Vintage.

Sunshine Coast Bridal Fashion

Sunshine Coast Bridal Fashion Matt Rowe Photography Matt Rowe Photography Sunshine Coast Bridal Fashion from the uber talented Judy Copley Bridal. We just adore Judy’s creations. She has so much talent and vision and is such a generous person. Each Gown is lovingly hand-made and unique. What better way to make an impact on your wedding day than have a completely original and outrageously beautiful bridal gown designed by one of the Sunshine Coast’s finest!

Choosing a wedding gown has to be near the top of the wish list after finding the man (or woman) of your dreams, falling in love and getting engaged. I’m pretty sure that the beginning of this search is informed by Disney princesses and crayon drawings and formulates through current trends and  bridal inspiration. I’m always excited to see the bride’s dress when we arrive for Bridal Preparation photographs. Sometimes I nod and think, “that’s awesome – saw that coming and it is perfect” and other times I am quite blown away (in a pleasantly surprised way). From sheer lace numbers to volumes of tulle the moment each bride steps into her dress on the day of her wedding has to be one of those defining turning points of the day and carries so much meaning. For many of our brides, they say that it is the moment when it all feels real.

Sally and Brendan – Sunshine Coast Engagement Images

Sunshine Coast Engagement Images with impact by acclaimed fine art wedding photographer, Matt Rowe Photography.

Sally and Brendan have to be one of the loveliest couples – honestly! Check out this wonderful couple who have had us waiting in anticipation for their Townsville wedding for around a year now. Initially our paths crossed at another blessed affair – Chloe and Kenny’s wedding in 2013 and now we build up for a little hop, skip and travel up north. One of things I just loved when meeting Sally and Brendan was their enthusiasm and appreciation of the artistic side of photography and the images captured. The second, and dare I say, even more compelling was their genuine interest in people and enthusiasm for creating a relationship. People like this, I believe, are just naturally warm and friendly and probably have little idea about the genuine vibes they give. But those around them definitely are the better for knowing them, I’m sure.

Sunshine Coast Engagement Photos Sunshine Coast Engagement Images Sunshine Coast Engagement Photos Sunshine Coast Engagement Photos Sunshine Coast Engagement Photos These two wanted some iconic images of the Sunshine Coast. So we popped  Mount Ninderry in the background and braved the winds that Nature whipped up just to play a little havoc with Sally’s super cute balloons!

Point Cartwright engagement shoot – Louise and Brendan

Point Cartwright engagement shoots are really getting us excited. Why do we love this place? Well apart from the Sunshine Coast’s gem of a location, Noosa, Point Cartwright has some very beautiful places for the sunset. Also around the Point itself there is beautiful heathland that gives a great alternative to fluffy grass and creates images with intimacy.

Louise and Brendan are one fantastic couple with wonderful sense of humour and an obviously special connection. With their wedding not too far away now (bring on September) we were ready for their ‘trial run’. Many couples love an engagement shoot for the obvious reason that you get some pretty special photos. Others love it for the fact that you get to work with your photographer in a relaxed mode and allow the connection to develop. We love an e-shoot as we get to witness your dynamics and spend time with you. Hey, we are all human and having a connection and a laugh is always going to be high on the agenda!
