Artistique Wedding Photography - Kimberley and Chris are Married.

Kimberley and Chris are Married


Hunter Valley

Last Saturday I captured Kimberley and Chris on their Wedding Day where they had a beautiful ceremony at the Lovedale Wedding Chapel, Lovedale, Hunter Valley.   I ordered perfect weather for them several months ago and it turned out to be just that and a nice 24deg - perfect!  We were very lucky because just a couple of days earlier, it had been in the mid to higher 30s with a strong wind blowing.  

Kimberley messaged me early on her wedding day to tell me how beautiful Lillies was, with a pond just off the deck, vines, horses etc and how we must come back to Lillies for post wedding photos as well and it was a good decision, capturing the sun going down beside the pond.  It really is a beautiful location.

My day started fairly early with Kimberley and the girls getting ready at  Lillies Luxury Retreat, Lovedale.  After their ceremony we spent a little time around the Chapel grounds for photos and then moved on to the Press Room at Moorebank Vineyard another beautiful location, then back to Lillies Luxury Retreat for more photos followed by their beautiful Reception at Leaves and Fishes in Lovedale and a sparkler arch farewell.

I absolutely love capturing weddings in the Hunter Valley and brides often seem surprised that I will go to the Hunter Valley when I am based at Toowoon Bay on the Central Coast.  Travel is only just over an hour away so that is not a problem at all for me.   

Here are some photos from Kimberley and Chris' fabulous wedding:

Finalist Brides Choice Awards - Artistique Wedding Photography

Bride's Choice Awards

Finalist 2017

I got a surprise email this morning when I learned I have been nominated by some of my previous brides for the 2017 Brides Choice Awards - Central Coast NSW.  I am now a Finalist and look forward to the Gala Cocktail Event later next month when the winners of each wedding supplier category will be announced.

There are just so many "wedding photographers" on the Central Coast now, so it is nice to be recognised.

I guess some of my previous brides may  be reading my blogs, and if so, then thank you very much for voting for me.

Artistique Photography by Nicolette
Photography Magazine's
Photography Excellence Award
I have recently joined the Photography Association which is a world wide Association for photographers who specialise in wedding, portrait, newborn, maternity photography.  I submitted a few images to see if I would be accepted and I see they have not only let me join the association, but I have been awarded for the following image:
I have never entered any Industry photography competitions, and being an Accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP), who have annual State and National Awards, perhaps I might enter a couple photos next year!
I have now captured hundreds of weddings in the nearly 7 years since I launched my photography business and also capture, portrait, maternity, family photography.

I love capturing emotion

...and all those special moments

and candid moments as well...
