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 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!

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.
