The proposal: Brock proposed in Thailand – he tricked me as he told me the holiday was for graduating Uni. Brock told me we were going out to a nice restaurant, so that afternoon we got dressed up and we started walking towards the foyer of the hotel – when suddenly we start walking back in towards the hotel and towards the pool area. As we get closer, there’s a sign and balloons saying “Happy Birthday.” I told Brock that we couldn’t walk through, but he keeps dragging me along while I’m protesting and trying to walk the opposite way. Then, we go around a corner and there’s a gazebo with a table, suspended above the infinity pool with flowers and candles leading all the way to the table. There’s love hearts floating in the pool, champagne on ice and fairy lights all over the gazebo. We have this amazing three course meal and at the end of dessert, Brock goes to the “toilet”. While he’s gone, I am blindfolded by staff and am seated in a chair and left there with my heart racing like a lunatic. Eventually the blindfold is taken off and I see a group of guests dancing to The Macarena at the bottom of the stairs. The song eventually changes to: Bruno Mars – “Marry You.” And I start to get teary and emotional. Guests and staff members are still dancing in front of me and they start holding up signs saying really romantic stuff that Brock had written.  Brock finally comes out and gets on one knee and asks me to marry him. It was truly amazing!

An awesome lunch at a rental house, then we were dropped into the city and along pulls up this “ARMY BUS.” On board were two topless men – who served us drinks for two hours, while we danced our way around the city. We suddenly stop, and who hops on board!? But of course – A stripper! He was an awesome dancer. After that, we got dropped into Fortitude Valley and stayed out dancing.

Buck’s night: The morning started with Vodka shots (Thanks to Millsy). Then on to “Bitter Sweet” to meet up with everyone and have a few drinks and nibbles. Then on to lawn bowls – where the drinks kept on flowing. After that we went to “The Embassy” for craft beers and nibbles. The night moved on to some Jelly Wrestling and an amazing shower performance by Brock himself. The night then carried on at the Treasury Casino.

Why you chose Lisa from With Every Heartbeat Photography: We thought it was a very cute business name with great photos on the website and we found the blog to be a unique twist on other companies we had looked into. The photos online all looked very natural and Lisa was easy to get along with, which was an added bonus.

Wow Steph and Brock, what an EPIC Wedding!!   And I’d like to thank my wonderful 2nd shooter Wendy for all of her assistance too!!!  Wishing you both a wonderful honeymoon next year too!!

Nicole and Jared’s classical, elegant and intimate garden ceremony

This week I’m sharing the beautiful, intimate wedding of Nicole and Jared at New Farm Park.

PINIMAGE

Real Life Wedding

Date: 18th August 2017

Theme: Classical, elegant and intimate garden ceremony

Couple’s names: Nicole and Jared

Ceremony location: New Farm Park Rotunda

Reception location: Rhubarb Rhubarb

So a few years ago I was 2nd shooting the wedding of Rochelle and Gabe with my husband Ben (he’s a wedding photographer too) and I met this wonderful family!  Nicole was a bridesmaid, along with her sister Karla.   I love how these 3 brides have now gotten married and they’ve all been each other’s bridesmaids!

Nicole contacted me a few months ago and told me they were organising a wedding (for about 2 months time), because Jared’s best friend was coming to Australia from the UK, and they wanted Jarod (the best man) to be here for this special occasion.  So Nicole and Jared organised this gorgeous wedding in record time and it went without any hitches!!

The most crazy thing about this wedding was that Nicole’s sister’s name is Rochelle, Jared’s sister’s name is Richelle, and my sister is Rochelle also!!   I think it was fate that I was meant to shoot this wedding, since we all have connections with Rochelle/Richelle’s!!

The proposal: Jared took Nicole out to dinner at one of their favorite restaurants, Two Small Rooms, for her birthday… after the champagne was poured, Jared asked Nicole if she would like her birthday present.. when he handed over a gift wrapped box, Nicole quickly unwrapped to find a wedding themed Lego set… whilst Nicole was digesting what this was, Jared got down on one knee and proposed with a beautiful white gold solitaire diamond ring… It took Nicole a few seconds to compose herself and through her happy tears, she finally said yes and gave Jared a very big cuddle..

Hen’s night:  A few drinks and dinner at West End with Nicole’s sisters and closest girl friends, flower themed.

Buck’s night: Drinks, putt putt and driving range at Victoria Park Golf Course, followed by steak and 90s console video games at home.

Funniest Moment on your wedding day:

It has to be the flower girls and the ring bearer … kids being kids, they were shy to walk down the aisle and Zara did not want to leave Nicole when it was time for them to go home! Very cute.

Special Memory:

Wearing our grandmothers rings was the most special moment, having them part of our beautiful day as they have both passed and were very important in Nicole and Jared’s life.

Special thanks: Nicole’s family for their help and providing support for the big day.

Advice for other brides-to-be:

Try to make everything as simple and as less fuss as possible, because what is most important are those special words in becoming husband and wife.

Why you chose Lisa from With Every Heartbeat Photography:

We had met Lisa before at Nicole’s older sisters wedding as she was a photographer for it.. and so we knew her work. Lisa was so easy to talk to and we loved her flexibility with our needs.

Thank you Nicole and Jared for choosing me as your wedding photographer – I had a wonderful afternoon with you and you both looked fantastic!  Wishing you all the best for the future and I hope to see you all again soon!!

Personal Branding is more than just a head shot.

Thank you Cheree for this lovely testimonial too”

“I connected with Lisa at a workshop we both attended and I asked her if she could do some personal branding photos for my small business.  I was really nervous but she helped me every step of the way, from hair and make up to outfit choices to concept planning. 

Could not recommend Lisa more highly for her approachability, professionalism and her unique ability to make me feel relaxed and comfortable.  Super happy with the outcome and the end result.  Thank you Lisa”.

Before and Afters – Personal Branding and Contemporary Portraits

Ok admit it, most people are pretty obsessed with Before and After images.

And it’s not just in the photography industry either.  People love to watch House Renovation Shows, just look at The Block, Property Brothers, Fixer Upper, This Old House, Sarah’s House, Selling Houses  the list goes on!

Then there’s shows about doing up old cars like Over Haulin, Wheeler Dealers, American Cars, For the Love of Cars, Pimp My Ride and again, the list keeps going!

Not to mention shows like The Biggest Loser!

So it’s no wonder we love to see men and women in their before and after images!

Clients come to my studio usually a little nervous and unsure, but by the end of the shoot they are so empowered and confident with the combination of looking great, feeling great and receiving direction on how to move in front of the camera – it is pure magic!

My poor blog has been a bit neglected of late, since I’ve started concentrating more on Personal Branding and Contemporary Portraits of real clients and how they are transformed in my studio.

Follow me as I share the amazing women I have been meeting and photographing, and how I can help serve you to have stunning images also.

We can guide you through your head shots or profile shots for your social media pages, cover some personal branding (if you have a business that you want to promote) and lead you into the stunning contemporary glamour portraits.

Your photo shoot experience is pampering from the start to finish and will leave you feeling like painting the town red – plan a night out after, because you will look gorgeous!!

PINIMAGE

Your session includes a pre shoot consultation, professional make-up and hair styling, 2 hours of camera time, access to the studio wardrobe (or bring your own outfits), laughter, encouragement, goodies and fun!

PINIMAGE

You’ll be delighted at how beautiful you feel during the whole process.

PINIMAGE

The reveal session to view your images will be one week after your shoot – when you’ll purchase only the images you LOVE.

HOW DO I BOOK?

To book with me, I would like to invite you to my studio for an in person consultation.  You can meet my team and tour the studio and choose some outfits.  If you can’t come in, I’m happy to do an in person consult via skype / facetime or over the phone, so we can design a session just for you.

We also capture those short-lived teenage years, semi formals and formals (in studio)

Celebrate a legacy of beautiful portraits with your children and celebrate the love you have for them.
