Rae & Christian tie the knot! | Raffertys Resort Wedding Photography
Raffertys Resort was the setting for Christian and Rae’s beautiful spring wedding. Not that long ago we planned a photo shoot we Christian and Rae before their wedding, sometimes known as an engagement shoot or pre-wedding shoot. A pre-wedding shoot is a great way to have some practise in front of the camera while at the same time getting some great shots you can look back on in the future. A bonus is I got to know Christian and Rae a little better and I think that really showed on the wedding day as I felt like one of the guests (just with a camera in my hand all day :)).
The weather could not have been better with the sun shining while they exchanged vows down by the lakeside. After the ceremony we took advantage of the grounds around Raffertys Resort and before I knew it we were back ready for the party to begin at their reception. A fantastic feature of Raffertys is the Jetty over Lake Macquarie and we headed down during the reception to capture a few shows just as it started to get dark. I love shooting at sunset or even just after sunset as you can get a completely different look at this time of day.
Back in the reception it wasn’t long before the party started and just about everyone hit the dance floor. Thank you to Christian and Rae for sharing their day with me!
