Central Coast Wedding Guide

Central Coast Wedding Guide

An exciting new publication is due out at the end of April for Central Coast Brides.  It will be a good planning tool full of all the information you need to know when planning your wedding on the Coast.

I am delighted that one of my beautiful brides from 2011 has been selected to have her story and photographs of her wedding day featured in the Real Weddings section as the winter bride. Below is one of the many photographs of Sarah, which you will probably see in the magazine.

Also selected for the Bride and Groom Gallery are two more of my 2011 brides:

Cassie and Andrew

Nicole and Brendan

I hope you will enjoy reading your copy of the Guide.

A Special Day Today

A Special Day today - 22.3.12.

Today it is a year since I launched my business, my website and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/artistiquephotographybynicolette) went live.  My goal for my first year was to book 10 brides, but I managed to do that within the first few months.  This morning I have booked 28 brides within the year, and the day is not over yet.  I am truely passionate about capturing the magic of a wedding day, a radiant bride, happy guests and all the beauty that surrounds a wedding.

I have also had many portrait assignments within my first year and these have mainly been outdoor, using predominantly natural lighting (my favourite).

I'd like to thank everyone for reading my blogs, contributing to the 958 "likes" I have on my Facebook Page and for my brides, choosing me to capture your special day.

Below is a selection of some of the images I have captured over this past year, and I look forward to capturing many more over the years to come.

The Haven, Terrigal


There was only a one hour window without heavy rain showers but I managed to capture many photos of Lou and Craig today and luckily within one minute of finishing the photo shoot, it then poured with rain!  Here are some photos from today:

Aleisha's Hunter Valley Photo Shoot


Recently I spent an afternoon at a beautiful setting in the Hunter Valley where I took some photographs of Aleisha, both outside in natural light and using creative lighting for the indoor shots.  Here are some of those images:
