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.

Neteeka + Nathan Engagement Session at Glenrock by Lachlan Jordan

Glenrock is one of my favourite places to visit in the Newcastle area. Beautiful bush trails which lead to the beach, and if it’s been raining there are waterfalls.

I took Nateeka and Nathan with me on a mini adventure through Glenrock one Sunday morning for their Enagagement Photo session.

Here are a few frames from our time together:

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!

Josh + Stevie Newcastle Engagement Shoot by Lachlan Jordan

Josh was the winner of an Engagement Shoot competition I had running over on my Facebook Page. I went out with him and his fiancé Stevie around Newcastle to get some photos together. Here is some of what I captured.

Bec & Luke at Susan Gilmore Beach by Lachlan Jordan

On Sunday I photographed this lovely couple. He likes to surf and they both love living on the coast so I thought sunset around Bar Beach would make a great location. It was low tide, so we wandered from Bar Beach to Susan Gilmore Beach and I captured some great moments between these two ocean loving love birds.

Sam + Mikey Newcastle engagement shoot by Lachlan Jordan

Virtually High School sweethearts (Mikey having just finished High School and Sam being in year 12) Sam and Mikey have been together for 9 years! Both are now Registered Nurses and studied together at The University of Newcastle.

Having busy schedules as Registered Nurses made it difficult to organise a date for an engagement / pre-wedding shoot but we managed to lock one in on Wednesday and I am so happy with the results! I had so much fun hanging out and photographing these two love birds and am so excited for their Wedding next week!
