1) Gorgeous couple; 2) Divine Sunshine Coast beach setting; 3) Photographer = awesomeness! More
Katrina and Atilia had their engagement photos at Buderim’s beautiful Waterfall. This is such a favourite spot for us as we adore the surrounds and just know that the scenery makes a perfect backdrop for couples. More
Hold on to your tail feathers folks; we’re in for a fabulous wedding!
So how did these two meet? Well a lovely high school friend of Jasmyn’s introduced these two love birds one night after Church. It was Matt who spotted Jasmyn first and pursued an introduction. Their first meeting did occur when Jasmyn was in her pjs, obviously ready for a relaxing night when the dashing Matt knocked at her door. Her father had always said,” Jasmyn, you need to get out and meet guys. Your husband is not going to just land on your front door step.” As we can see that fate intervened and Matt did just that!
If it is not getting obvious that there is just too much goodness in this relationship this should be the clincher! Matt wrote on heck of a letter to his beautiful bride before the nuptials began. I have no idea what it said, but there were glassy eyes everywhere.
We just loved spending the day with these two: ready for anything and happy to play around as well.
What a treat. You two deserve the best! What a super bridal party you have to join you on your journey together.

I have a bit of a crush on suspenders…
- The first suspenders can be traced to 18th century France, where they were basically strips of ribbon attached to the buttonholes of trousers.
- Benjamin Franklin is said to have worn them — although it’s probably best not to ask how historians know that; back then, suspenders were considered an undergarment never to be seen in public.
- In fact, visible suspenders were considered risqué as recently as 1938, when a town in Long Island, NY tried to ban gentlemen from wearing them without a coat, calling it “sartorial indecency.” The ban was later overturned after residents complained.
- One of pop culture’s most famous hooligans, Alex DeLarge (Malcolm MacDowell), wore them in A Clockwork Orange.
- A 1986 People magazine article recommended that “fashion-forward teens” let their suspenders hang from their waist, arguing that drooping suspenders were “very sensual.”
- Suspenders were largely absent from people’s closets in the 1990s and early 2000s — that is, until hip-hop style icon Fonzworth Bentley popularized the preppy dandy look. Recent years have seen a fascination with early 20th century culture (think: speakeasy-themed bars, moustaches, fedoras) amongst a certain subset of people — usually young, usually in major cities — who like to dress the part.

So forgive me if it appears that Matt’s suspenders have taken the show. They are cool, yes this is true, but really we still have to give focus to this dandy couple as they prepare to wed in early October.

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. 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.
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.

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.
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! If it is your time to shine – give us a call: 54466702, or shoot through an email: email@example.com. It would be our pleasure to discuss your wedding plans.

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!
You just have to smile! More
Love prevails. And when we ensure that love is the cornerstone of a marriage then it is easy to maintain focus. Anita and Mitch displayed this simple, yet essential fact throughout their beautifully heart-warming ceremony at Noosa’s Hidden Grove.
For was was essentially a traditional ceremony, Anita and Mitchell did incorporate some cultural and unique elements. Antia’s family’s Taiwanese heritage was acknowledge in the simple and respectful gesture of Mitchel’s bow. Where their love of the classics found a close friend reading a Shakespearean sonnet. The lovely Mary Bruce held their ceremony and included some really special heart-felt revelations from her individual discussions with Anita and Mitch in the lead up to their big day.
It’s not often that a Hidden Grove Wedding Photographer is faced with an entire Surf Lifesaving Carnival as a backdrop. (The conditions in Coolum did not support the event so half an hour before the ceremony the Carnival was moved to Noosa… sigh). But that’s life and we all roll with it. When you’re in the zone and your focus is clear, however, it is easy to ignore the jet-skis and fluro pink and leave your awareness in the present moment in front of your eyes (phew!). To be honest, I couldn’t say whether Anita and Mitch even noticed the hub-bub during their vows. We love a Noosa Wedding. There is just so much beauty and scope for gorgeous wedding images.
Anita and Mitch, we wish you the greatest life together and thank you for letting us be a part of your day.

It’s all in the details. The subtle nuances that hold meaning to couples are simply intriguing. While the impact of a wedding day is held in the ceremony and the essential moments of the ritual of marriage, the finer details often reflect such genuine thought, care and consideration that it is important to absorb them as well. Buderim Wedding Photographer, Matt Rowe Photography joined Sarah and Anthony for their big day which began at St Mary’s in Buderim, with a stop for all guests and a slice of wedding cake and the Buderim Tavern before heading up to the Maleny Hinterland for one gorgeous photo-shoot prior to arriving at the classically beautiful Poet’s Cafe in Montville.
When it comes to the artistic side of your wedding photography it is hard to go past all that you bring and the goodness of sunset in a beautiful part of the world. Wendy’s Flowers and Event Hire certainly did style up a frenzy for this engaging duo. It can be a really lovely idea to develop your concept with someone overseeing a number of elements of the day; in this case Wendy is to be congratulated for both flowers and Styling. Sarah did have her hand it with her own contributions to the reception through personal touches in decorations, which I just love!
“We are after a relaxed event – no first dance or bridesmaids, with the ceremony at Sails while everyone has a champagne” = one super relaxed couple
Liz and Josh planned their Noosa Wedding from overseas to focus on the union in marriage, friends and family. As wedding photographers it was really lovely to have a little change of pace with a 5pm ceremony and a focus on the pure candid moments at Sails Restaurant in Noosa. A key element of candid wedding photography is being unobtrusive and unassuming yet in a highly observant way. Gee, could I make that sound any more complicated?! Our camera gear is top of the range Nikon and allows us to take sneaky photos without the “hello I’m a photographer in your face” flash that is sometimes seen. The product of being able to shoot in low light gives a really special grainy/ documentary feel and really adds to the photojournalistic approach required for candid wedding photography. Liz and Josh were such a happy, relaxed couple and their friends and family were an absolute joy to be around for such an important occasion. I just love that Liz wore a dress that suited her so well and looked beautifully semi-formal without the white wedding connotation. Everyone is unique with their plans and desires and that is just one element that keeps the flame alive for us.
