Brisbane Wedding Photographer | Gavin Wyatt » Artistic Wedding Photojournalism from Brisbane Wedding Photographer Gavin Wyatt

When I took these photos Sophie was a few weeks old, and me and Suz were expecting our first baby in a couple of months. We were scared… well, I was more like terrified to be honest. But then I did this shoot, and experienced a kind of shift in my thinking. I was a little less terrified and a little more excited. Sophie’s parents Ryan and Liz were also hitting the road for the first time on this crazy parenthood journey, and were both just so stoked with life. Liz told us how the thing she was most unprepared for was the intensity of the love she felt for her daughter… which I thought was a really important statement, because that was the one thing we hadn’t thought about preparing for. It kinda put into perspective the whole notion of family and having kids, and made me look forward to having our own!

Anyway, I hope the photos convey the love, inclusion and tenderness of these three lovely people. If you’re in Brisbane and interested in getting some similar family or baby photographs taken, drop me a line.

Want to see another family shoot? I blogged about Tom and his daughter Amelie here.

This day. It was awesome.

Will and Simone are the kind of people that typify the Sunshine Coast – they are two super chilled, laid back, smiley rays of sunshine. And because good things happen to good people, their wedding followed those themes like it was scripted… in a really good way.  And with all the hard work they both put in, they did everything short of script it. A wedding this well organised allows the bride and groom and their families to just breeze through the day, relaxed and worry free because they know everything is going to turn out great. So Will and Simone could just be themselves, which makes my job as the wedding photographer real easy. Everyone was smiling, having a great time and really appreciating the day.

There were plenty personal touches of style and class added to proceedings that turned this into a really funky wedding. For me there were a couple of standouts… the stunning red Volkswagen Kombi (provided by Deluxe Kombi Service) that served as the wedding car was one of them. It perfectly suited Will and Simone, you can see it in some of the photos below. I also thought the Annabella Chapel, where they chose to have their ceremony, was simply amazing. Nestled into the foresty hills of the Sunny Coast hinterland, it treads the line between modern and vintage with grace and style, providing the perfect backdrop for artistic photography. Have a squiz at what we created below!

It’s not everyday you get published on your favourite wedding blog, so I was really honoured when Hayley and James’s stunning wedding made it onto the hallowed pages of Polka Dot Bride! This Dunsborough wedding was such a pleasure to photograph, I loved every second of it, and I’m so glad it’s reaching a wider audience via this amazing wedding blog. Check out the Polka Dot Bride story here, and for my own blog post of this wedding visit this page. As a reminder to me and you, below are a couple of my favourite photos from this wedding :)

This is pretty cool. I shot Sara and Richie’s wedding across in Perth a few months go, and it got featured in the Sunday Times this weekend! All thanks to these two good lookers, I know, but it’s nice to think so many people saw that photo while eating their Sunday breakfast.

Their wedding was awesome… I flew across from Brisbane to shoot it and had an absolute blast. A ceremony in the UWA Sunken Gardens… a reception cruising on a boat up the Swan River… what more could you ask for? Check out the blog of the wedding here, and have a look at the photo from the Sunday Times below!

The other day we braved the cold flew down to the Mornington Peninsula to visit my buddy for life Tom and his little family. He is a doting Dad to little Amelie Coco, who proved a very willing and smiley camera subject! She didn’t even complain about being taken from the warm house and whirled around on the beach… in fact she was quite tickled by the whole process. Here’s a few photographs we took.

All of these were taken with a Canon 5d Mkii, and a 50mm prime lens (the infamous ‘nifty fifty’). I’ve taken to carrying this setup around with me everywhere I go… it’s not too cumbersome, and I love the challenge of not having a zoom to work with. Having a camera with me all the time means I don’t miss cool opportunities that pop up, such as a spontaneous photoshoot like this one.

If you want to book in a family photoshoot in Brisbane, the Gold Coast or the Sunshine Coast, contact me and I’ll be able to help you out.

And while you’re here, how funky is this wedding? :)

Dave and Amy are not known for doing things in half measures, and their wedding was no exception. These are the guys who gave us the fearless ‘big dip’ for their first kiss, which you can read about here. They got hitched at a stunning estate called The Riad in the lush Byron hinterland, minutes away from where they first met at the Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival. The location perfectly captured the classy, laid back vibe of Dave and Amy, the ultimate backdrop for a day of laughter and escapades. I was there, I took some photos… it’s all caught on camera. And what a pleasure that was. All the building blocks of the day fitted together seamlessly, from Amy’s gorgeous dress to the bridesmaids dresses to the suits. The inimitable Frank and Joy ensured the day ran like clockwork, and Cara from Modern Love Ceremonies was the perfect celebrant for the occasion. But what really made the day special were those grins on the bride and groom’s faces… they just didn’t go away the whole day. Take a look.

If you’re getting married at the Riad, in Byron Bay, or anywhere else in Australia and you’d like to know more about my wedding photography, drop me a line!
