Emily and Rangi | Bribie Island Wedding

It was a Sunday afternoon. I was invited to a family bbq at Tukus. I was about to meet his Mum, brothers and grandparents for the first time. We weren’t officially in a relationship yet. But it felt only natural.

When I walked through the door the first person I noticed was Emily, giving me a massive smile. And though I hadn’t felt very nervous to begin with, the warmth she radiated towards me put me at ease.

You see, my sister Nat and I had grown up around Emily and her sisters Laura and Alex. We played netball together for many years. Had flying fox dates at her parents house. Went to the same school. And now here we were. She had been dating Rangi, Tukus older brother, for years.

The bbq went swimmingly and it felt so natural and easy to talk to everyone. I instantly felt welcome. At the end of the month Tuku and I were together. And so began many bbq’s and family gatherings.

Rangi and Emily fell in love in high school. Together, they are an absolutely perfect match. They are such fun-loving, adventurous, and easygoing people. So happy. So loving. Their wedding day was a perfect reflection of who they are, from emilys handmade flower creations right down to their barefoot ceremony on the beach and dancing down the aisle. Bribie Island put on a lovely sunny day for the pair and an amazing sunset at the end. The reception took place at Blue Anchorage. It was such a pleasure to be a part of this happiness-infused celebration, doing what I love to do.

Much love and appreciation,
Stacey

Emma | Caboolture Formal Photography

Senior Formal is the most magical time when you’re a high school student. I remember my friends and I talking about it every second we could even in Year 11 – a whole two years before the night. We would pass notes in class, look at the past year books formal pages, point out the dresses we liked and what we didn’t…in my spare time I would even draw what I envisioned in my head to be my dream formal dress.

The night eventually came and it was everything. I took too many photos to count on my little point and shoot camera and printed them all the next day to blu tack up in my room. Every photo was perfect to me, so precious.

To take some photos for Emma before her Year 12 formal was such a pleasure. She is such a bubbly, funny and lovely young woman. Here is a little look at some of the photographs I took of her before she headed off on her grand night last October.

Much love and appreciation,
Stacey
