Chloe & Ryan’s Hervey Bay Purnella Park Wedding

Chloe & Ryan's Purnella CoachHouse Wedding-01

Chloe and Ryan’s stunning wedding at Purnella Park Coachhouse in Hervey Bay started my wedding season off with a big bang!

For 6 months all my clients had to either postpone or cancel their weddings due to COVID. To say this has been a very interesting year for wedding photographers including myself is an understatement.

It was so wonderful to be back in the game again, but also a bit scary. When you haven’t been photographing weddings for such a long time, I was worried I’d lost the touch. More so, weddings are such a fast-paced environment, there’s no time for error. Luckily it’s like riding a bike (which as a Dutchy you never forget lol) and it was such an awesome day to get back into the swing of it.

Chloe looked absolutely stunning and was so calm and beaming with happiness when I arrived. Chloe had hired this gorgeous Airbnb in Hervey Bay, which complemented her wedding so well. Having a nice prep area sometimes gets forgotten, but it’s so important if you’re having your preparations photographed by a pro. it just adds that extra finesse to your photos, something that mustn’t be overlooked if you decide to hire me for the whole day.
The girls were just so fun and lovely and it was sweet of Chloe to buy gift boxes for their parents and bridesmaids.

As a photographer knowing that your couple not only wants candid photography but also beautiful creative shots, it makes my heart sing because I love to create something special for them.
Purnella Park Coachhouse has so many beautiful spots for these photos and Chloe and Ryan were just lovely together. I always make sure, your photos aren’t too posed, I actually use a lot of prompts to get still a natural feel in the photos. The wedding was such a huge success and I’m so happy for Chloe and Ryan they were able to have their dream day.

As Chloe and Ryan chose my 8-hour package for their special day, it pretty much covers prep till a couple of hours into reception. I wish my gorgeous couple a beautiful life together and maybe one day, I can photograph the next chapter of their lives. XxX Karin

Amazing!! These images are stunning and captured the feel of the day perfectly. I was the hairdresser at the wedding and the morning was so relaxed and wonderful and once Karin arrived it became even better. Her ability to do her job and make it so enjoyable for everyone was fantastic! Highly recommend her enthusiastic and bubbly presence for everyone! 5 stars!!!
