Main Beach Bungalow

A couple of weeks ago I worked with two new emerging stylists for a creative photo shoot. We picked Main Beach as our location and were fortunate enough to shoot at the very exclusive Main Beach Bungalow.

If you don’t know about this Gold Coast Hidden gem, then now you certainly will. Have a look inside!

Palm Beach Backyard Wedding

Earlier this month I had the honor of photographing my friend's sister's wedding. The lovely couple were married in Italy earlier this year, but upon their return decided to have a backyard "wedding ceremony" with their close family and friends.

The ceremony was held in the afternoon at their beautiful property in Palm Beach, QLD - right on the beach! The bride looked absolutely stunning in her designer wedding dress and the groom in a handsome, well-fit tux. They were accompanied by the groom's younger children in mini tuxes - too cute. 

Scroll through the photos below for some of the highlights from the afternoon.

Photo Shoot Prep Notes

Today I had a client ask me how they should best prepare for their upcoming soon. This got me thinking! So I've put together a list of my "prep notes" for every professional client. Is there anything on there that you would add? Let me know in the comments below!

Why I love my job

I was so touched last week to receive this beautiful, touching testimonial from one of my clients. She certainly knows how to bring a tear to my eye! I was lucky enough to shoot her engagement session as well as a couple extras for her wedding tables :-)

 "Celeste has such an amazing natural ability and talent for capturing all types of life's special moments. She is the perfect balance  of professional and friendly and makes everyone involved feel so comfortable around her. She is truly a beautiful soul and a breath of fresh air and makes everybody so happy, that it shows through her high quality work! She has taken many photos of my Husband and I and also for some of my family and they all love her - including us of course! 😊 We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you so much, Celeste, from the bottom of our hearts. You are most defiantly one of a kind and we have given your name and will continue to do so to anyone who may be looking for an exceptional photographer now and in. The future!!! ❤️xx" 

Thank you Lorraine, you gorgeous woman! I'm fluffed and a little embarrassed, but words like these make me do what I do!
