Newcastle Wedding

2018 Retrospective by Lachlan Jordan

Lachlan-Jordan-Photography-best-of-2018.jpg

I don’t know what it was about 2018 but for me it somehow simultaneously seemed to go by really quick, whilst also feeling like a long year. Maybe that’s because it was very busy year. Lots of changes happened for me throughout 2018. Some more planned than others. I guess the biggest change was leaving Newcastle towards the end of the year and moving to Crescent Head on the Mid-North Coast.

This year I captured more portraits than previous years and I personally feel there has been a lot of growth in that side of my photography. I am thankful for those who have hired me to capture their portrait, or cover their event or wedding throughout 2018. I've met some really wonderful people throughout the year which makes pursuing this career even greater. I hope in 2019 I get to continue meeting wonderful people and grow my business even further.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you enjoy this post looking back on my photography for the year of 2018.

Joey + Daniel Hunter Valley Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

I first met Joey at a Cafe I used to work at. She was a regular customer of the Cafe and I always made sure to look after the regulars. One day I noticed her Engagement ring and enquired about Wedding plans. I told her I also do Photography and gave her one of my cards. About eight months pass and I get a Facebook message from Joey telling me that her and her partner had set a date and wanted to talk wedding photos.

Joey and Daniels Wedding was an intimate day at the Millfield Homestead out in the Hunter Valley. There were lots of personalised touches including her Wedding Dress which was made by both her Mum and Nanna. With about 30 guests of close friends and family it was an emotional but wonderfully happy day and I was glad that I was asked to be a part of it.

Here are a few photos from this wonderful celebration of love.

Joey + Daniel Engagement Shoot Redhead Beach by Lachlan Jordan

Joey was a regular customer at a Cafe I work at, and one day noticing her Engagement Ring I enquired about her Wedding plans and if she had a Photographer. At the time there was no wedding date set, but we would always have a bit of a chat whenever she came in. A good six months or so pass when I received a message from Joey saying her and her fiancé Daniel have set a date and want to talk Photography. I was very excited to get this message!

For their Engagement photos Joey and Daniel were keen on going to the beach. Seeing as it was low tide I took them on a mini adventure of some cool spots I knew of around Redhead and we finished the photo session at Redhead Beach. I can't wait for their Hunter Valley Wedding in September!

Wedding Album Investment by Lachlan Jordan

I love print. In this digital age where we seem to store all our images on hard drives or online I feel like the printed image is all the more special. There's nothing like having something tangible which can be held, touched and passed on.

I cannot recommend getting yourself a Wedding Album for your Wedding enough. All albums are custom designed, and unique to each couple.

Beautifully presented, the lay flat Wedding Album is a great way to relive, and share with others your special day.

Sam + Mikey Newcastle Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

If you saw the engagement shoot for these two you will know they have been together for 9 years! Virtually High School sweethearts (Mikey having just finished High School and Sam being in year 12) both are now Registered Nurses and studied together at The University of Newcastle.

They said 'I do' at The Newcastle Club in front of close friends and family and later had their reception at FogHorn Brewhouse in Newcastle. I love the contrast of the old world look of The Newcastle Club against the industrial look of FogHorn. FogHorn being Sam and Mikey's number one choice of venue due to their love of Beer.

I had such a blast photographing their Wedding! A day with lots of love and laughter, amazing venues and lovely people who made me feel like more than just the event photographer, but part of the celebration.
