Georgina and James Catalina Noosa River Wedding Photos

Before every wedding, I’m on edge. I really feel the responsibility and honour of photographing a wedding. It’s important. Any other shoot – covers, ad campaigns, big budgets – I am fine. But put the word wedding into the mix and its a new level of pressure. The thing is, I wouldn’t have the “stage fright” any other way. Because it sharpens everything. As soon as the cameras comes out of the bag, the nerves vanish and the story happening before me completely takes over.

Georgina and Scott were married on board the Catalina Boat, on the Noosa River, on sunset. So we decided to do a pre wedding reveal, wander down onto the beach and get some photos with special friends prior to the ceremony.

The water came in, but everyone visibly relaxed together, dancing in the waves like kids, the sunbathers chuckled. The seagulls flew. Who cared if the feet got a bit wet and the hair windswept before the vows? We returned to the apartment above Little Cove beach – the uber didn’t arrive. A maxi cab was called. We almost didn’t make it to our own wedding. Of course the Catalina waited, guests on board, at Noosa Woods. Everything was alright in the end.
