Lincoln + Emily

Tucked away among the rolling hills of Malanda, Lincoln + Emily celebrated love and the beginning of their lifelong journey together. The location, Quinola Lakes, took me back to my childhood - covered wagons, waterslides, pine forests and a reception set on a basketball court! Lincoln + Emily added a touch of country with hay bales, cowboy hats and a trailer converted into an esky.

On that day, Lincoln + Emily invited me into their world. They expressed so much love and peace for one another during the photoshoot, it felt like I was part of the furniture (which was perfect!). I captured so many unforgettable moments. I will always remember leaving the scene and glancing back for one last look, to witness Emily + Lincoln alone for the first time as husband + wife. See for yourself in the images below. It was a wet wedding but nothing could dampen the spirits of Lincoln + Emily.

Matt + Britt

Tucked away on a hillside overlooking Port Douglas close family and friends celebrated the wedding of Matt + Britt. What's awesome about Jade Ridge, Port Douglas is that it allows you to host the bride/groom preparation, ceremony and reception all in the one location. This saves time, money and removes that extra stress a wedding can bring. I loved it because of the multiple locations to use in a photoshoot. Cane fields, rainforests and beaches... pretty much everything you'd want from Tropical North Queensland.

Also big shout-out to Lauren from Blissful Blooms. She did an amazing job on the day and added a burst of colour for Matt + Britt. Check her out! She is an upcoming Florist based in Tropical North Queensland.

Neil + Alex

Hosting a ceremony in the Botanical Gardens and a reception only a few minutes away in your own backyard was a pretty smart idea from this bride and groom. I love the idea! You celebrate in the comfort of your home, it requires no late night taxi drives and you can wake up with a possible hangover in your own bed!

Neil + Alex were a pleasure to photograph. It was a carefree photoshoot with friends. They followed my lead as I pointed out a few spots to explore and cane fields to hide in. The highlight of the trip was how we rewarded ourselves after finishing up early. A quick Maccas run for a 60¢ cone did the trick. Alex went fancy and spent extra on a chocolate flake!

Frank + Sara

Frank + Sara hosted my biggest wedding of 2017! It was held in "God's Country" as Frank described Mareeba, Queensland. Photographically, Mareeba is a gem. Golden light, rustic architecture and open landscapes to wander.

With an ice cold esky we headed towards a best mates farm which was the perfect place for a photoshoot. Rusty sheds, mango plantations and a cane farm in harvest = Endless photo opportunities! The ceremony was held at St Thomas of Villanova Church and the reception hosted by the Rosa family in their own backyard... The celebrations continued through the night with a mix of Australian and Italian families sharing stories, laughs and dancing the night away.

"To Jason, 
Thankyou for photographing Frank's and my wedding day. Looking through the 700 photo's you gave me, it is hard to pick out a bad shot. You are a true gentleman and having you in my personal space while getting ready felt very natural and I hardly knew you were there. Your photo's take on a life of their own, capturing the essence of the moment and that is all I truly wanted, however you also managed to capture the lighting and made everyone look like movie stars. I cannot fault your enthusiasm, natural ability to make people feel instantly comfortable and your professionalism. I look forward to our next shoot, when ever that may be.
Thanks from Sara & Frank"

Siobhan + Pat

Siobhan + Pat took their wedding to new heights by celebrating with family and friends at AJ Hackett. Pat took the plunge and asked Siobhan to marry him... Ok, enough innuendos!

After a ceremony in the rainforest the bridal party took the new husband and wife duo to a nearby pine forest for a few cold beverages. YaY! My favourite environment to shoot in and beer! The love started to flourish when the newlyweds ended their photoshoot roaming the cane fields while the sun set. I may have got a bit trigger happy with the camera at this point...
