It’s a new year!

Happy new year!

As another year goes by we are excited to start 2017 with some exciting changes and times ahead. Heading into our 14th year as VIBE Photography we feel blessed to be able to do what we love, and share so many moments with our couples on their special day.

We often run into couples out and about from some recent and not so recent weddings and it’s always great to see them as their lives change and grow, sometimes with new additions to the family or stories of adventures they have had.

For 2017 we have a bunch of awesome weddings lined up and we are also excited to meet lots of newly engaged couples around this time of year. There is no question New Years and Valentine’s Day (which is just around the corner) is when a lot of people “pop the question”. For us this is great, as we get to meet lots of newly engaged couples planning their wedding.

So if you have just found yourself with a ring on your finger and are getting excited about planning your day then get in quick and make a time to have a chat with us to see how we can help you on your day.

To all of our previous couples, thank you again for your support and we will have a little surprise offer coming your way in a few weeks, so keep an eye on a email from us soon. We love to reward our couples and this is possibly the best reward we have ever offered, more to come soon. 😉

There will be a few exciting changes in the coming weeks but I’ll post more as things develop.

Here are a few images to look back on from some of our 2016 weddings.

I’m so excited to show off Samantha and Dean’s highlight video… we hope that you love it and it shows off how amazing their wedding day really was! It was full of laughter, tears and happiness, and we were so thankful to share this amazing day with the happy couple.

Sit back and enjoy!

 

Dean & Samantha

A gorgeous Central Coast Wedding at St Marys Heritage Church and Kooindah Waters Resort – Central Coast Wedding Photography

What a day it was for these newly weds! There’s not much to really say except that it was perfect in every way! The boys were chilled and looked debonair in their suits. The girls were excited and stunningly elegant. St Mary’s Heritage Church was a perfect backdrop for them as they became man and wife. Dean did shed a few happy tears, but, who wouldn’t with a Bride like Samantha!!

Back at the reception at Kooindah Waters the room looked amazing as it was styled to perfection. And the night didn’t disappoint! The speeches were lovely and brought a few tears even to my eye! It was so lovely to hear, and be able to see, the love that everyone had for Dean and Samantha, and what they also had for their family and each other. Both Justin and I felt so privileged to be a part of this amazing day for the newly weds.

The photos that Justin captured help to show just how magnificent this day was and how meant to be these two are. Here’s a small snippet of their day, but more can be seen at the secure online gallery if you do have the password from the night of the wedding. The wedding video is underway, so make sure you check back soon to see a highlight of their day. We hope that you love everything that you see!

Heather + Chris

Central Coast Wedding Photography

Heather and Chris were married at St Mary’s Anglican Church in Gosford. After spending the morning with Heather and the girls I headed over to St Mary’s for a quick shot of the boys before the ceremony. Father Rod was at his best and before long they were Mr & Mrs! We had to dodge some rain and move pretty quickly but we were able to capture some beautiful images for Heather and Chris before they headed back to Trojan HQ at Terrigal.

The night went off without a hitch, and before long DJ Magoo had everyone up dancing. Thank you to Heather Chris and the entire bridal party for an amazing day! Friends and guest can now head over to our online gallery to view even more images from the day.

Mandy & Dave are married!

Central Coast wedding Photography for a very happy couple

Mandy & Dave’s wedding day was a gorgeous affair. Mandy has exquisite taste so, in the lead up to the wedding when we were chatting about what her plans were, I knew that this was going to be a classic, elegant wedding. And, I wasn’t wrong! I love the images that Justin has captured from their wedding, and the thought that has gone in to each area has resulted in a gorgeous wedding day! There were lots of laughs throughout the day and everyone had a fabulous time! A special thanks to Mandy & Dave for allowing us to capture this very special day. Justin had a blast with you, your family and your friends! We hope that you love this small snap shot of their day. And, if you are a family member or guest who has the password for Mandy & Dav’es secure online gallery, head on over to there now! We hope that you love everything that you see! Carla 🙂

What a wedding! So elegant and beautifully styled… just gorgeous! I couldn’t wait for Justin to get home so that I could see Mandy & Dave’s images as I was so excited to see Mandy’s wedding day coming together after getting snippets of what they had planned in the lead up. Well, it didn’t disappoint! The photos are awesome…. but, as we’re still working on them I can only show you a little sneak peek. So, here’s one for now and we’ll upload more soon.

Jacqui & Tom

Central Coast wedding photography …gotta love the Coast!

What a beautiful wedding Jacqui & Tom’s was!! The day was perfect – perfect Groom, perfect Bride, perfect cars, perfect church, perfect locations, perfect bridal party, perfect reception, perfect friends and family… I think you get my point! Justin couldn’t have asked for a more perfect couple to shoot on their wedding day. As we’ve had Christmas & new Years in between their wedding and now I’m uploading just a few more images than normal for all to see. We hope that you really do love them all and can’t wait to show you your perfect album when you return from your honeymoon!!!

The morning preparations were wonderful and Justin captured some fantastic images!! There were lots of people there enjoying the morning and helping out… including a gorgeous yellow friend of Tom’s!! 😉

So much effort goes in to the details of a reception room, and, while I don’t always show them on the blog, Justin always captures some terrific images for the bridal couple. Here are some from their room at Shelly Beach Surf Club:
