Engagement wedding photography for asian couple in Brisbane and Gold Coast.

An Elegant 7K Intimate Wedding | Wedding Dream Services

An elopement in Brisbane that costs closer to the $7K mark than a $68K wedding; Just. Had. To. Share. I know how hard it is to find the right photographer that offers wedding dream services in the style you love. Additionally, “Why do majority of the budget photographers do the earthy, muddy tone?”, ” I need a makeup artist that doesn’t make me look like a racoon with smokey eyes from the 80s.”

If you like my photography style, then as your photographer, it means the world to me to share this experience with you — from your engagement session to your wedding day, getting to know you as individuals and as a couple, and telling your story authentically and artfully through imagery brings me so much joy!

Romantic Wedding Dream Services: A Pastel Summer Soiree

Anastasia and Arty’s casual micro picnic wedding took place at Seventeen Miles Rock Riverside Park. Also choosing two outfits, one being a dreamy, modern bridal gown with puffy sleeves and long train for couples portraits while the other was a more relaxed and ‘cool’ option for a hot summer day. They were all smiles and you can feel the joy radiating from them both!

Wedding photography is an art that is different to engagement and family photography; dream wedding services tell your story: from how the big day starts, bridal prep, ceremony, signing, congratulations, family portraits, reception details, cake cut. Despite how most photos appear as ‘in the moment’, every image, prop, stationery has meaning to it. After all, a good photographer shoots with intention – we have the eye for what works best. Nothing is random or unintentional about wedding photos.

Nestled within Seventeen Miles Rock The Rocks Riverside Park near Oxley, lies a perfect spot for family picnics and an intimate micro wedding in Brisbane. Anastasia was not your typical bride – she did not want bridal party drama so she let go of the idea of having a bridal party and got ready herself. Given the ongoing turmoil happening in Russia their parents unfortunately could not attend the wedding. Nevertheless Anastasia was able to throw this epic wedding with their favourite people on a mid-summer day in the most casual yet beautiful way.

If you are on a budget and planning on putting together an intimate wedding, a picnic reception could be just the ticket to creating a relaxed vibe for you and your guests to enjoy your “I Do’s”! Imagine settling in with good food and company to celebrate your day, lounging on cushions and picnic blankets with your nearest and dearest.

This pastel colour scheme and natural elements such as oakwood really matched this park location and brought the picnic to life! Anastasia was lucky to have an uncle who plays the Accordion- it added to the fun of picnic weddings!

In conclusion, weddings still cost a lot of money. Photography is almost always a priority couple put at the top of their wedding must-have list. Don’t regret it by investing in the wrong people.

It makes sense. Although photography is an expensive investment, photos are just about the only physical thing you’ll have from your wedding day. They are the tangible memories you can hold onto and look back on. So, finding a great photographer is essential.

Remember, your wedding isn’t for your guests; it is for you. It is a day you want to remember for life and photos are the only way to help transport you back to those beautiful moments. It is my dream to help you craft an album as an honest keepsake just for you, or pictures to give to family, or some awe-inspiring shots to frame and display in your home.

I hope this session inspired you to create the budget wedding of your dreams. I would be delighted to help you document your big day – let’s talk!
