Newcastle Wedding

2017 Retrospective by Lachlan Jordan

hiking in New Zealand

Well it's that time of year again, the time when it's almost over and I sit back and reflect on the year that was. Looking back on these photographs I once again feel grateful to be able to say I've had an eventful year.

This year I travelled to new destinations and explored new places. I photographed moments for people that will be forever shared with friends and family. I am really excited about where my photography went this year and am looking forward what opportunities may come my way in 2018.

I want to thank everyone who made 2017 great and everyone who continues to follow my work and recommend me to friends and family. You are all amazing and I am very thankful.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you enjoy this post looking back on my photography for the year of 2017.

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.

Daena + Jess' Hunter Valley Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

I'm not going to waste time here on the politics of Gay Marriage in Australia, because it will turn into a rant and I would rather focus on the positives in this blog post. Let me just say I think love is love and everyone should have the right to marry whoever they want.

Everything about Daena and Jess' special day was the same as any other wedding, apart from the legal documentation. It was two families coming together to celebrate the love of two human beings. It was an emotional day full of love, smiles, laughter and tears of joy.

Daena and Jess declared their love in front of friends and family reading vows they had both prepared themselves. You could see the happiness and feel the love these two share for each other.

Jeramae + Stacy's Newcastle Wedding by Lachlan Jordan

Jeremae and Stacy had a an intimate wedding at Noahs on the Beach in Newcastle with only a guest list of 25. I had so much fun documenting their Wedding Day filled with romantic and intimate moments evenly matched with fun and spontaneously silly moments. Lots of smiles, and lots of laughs made my job even easier capturing this couple and their family celebrate such a joyous occasion.
