You’re nervous, pacing, something big, life changing is about to happen, you are going to propose this Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is THE world’s most romantic day, if you believe all the chocolate, roses, bubbly, lingerie and cards that become precious gifts on the 14th February.

As a Brisbane based wedding photographer, I get to meet so many lovely couples, each with a story, dreams and hopes. As part of our wedding photography service, we include an engagement portrait shoot which is great for helping you feel at ease around the camera, I also share some tips on how to always look good in a photo. Wedding days are magic, seeing it all unfold is brilliant.


Michael and Crystal, Tattersalls Club Brisbane, wedding photographer Brisbane, John Reyment

Michael and Crystal’s wedding was sensational. St Stephen’s Cathedral and the Brisbane Tattersall’s Club were the venues, myself and Melinda Comerford were the photographers. Mel photographed their engagement shoot while I was in Europe; their wedding day was perfect in every way.

Jayne and James, St Stephen's Cathedral, wedding photographer Brisbane, John Reyment

Meet Jayne and James. I photographed their engagement portrait at the studio and nearby. Their wedding day was grand, lots of fun, memorable speeches, great food. They were married at St Stephen’s Cathedral followed by a reception at the iconic Customs House.

Cass and Clint, RiverLife, wedding photographer Brisbane, John Reyment

Cass and Clint were married by Father Stephen at St Mary’s Kangaroo Point. It was a beautiful spring day, Cass got ready at Quay West which offered views of both Riverlife where their reception was to be held and the church. There were a couple of showers after the ceremony but this was no drama, guests partied at Riverlife well into the night. Our studio ahs a fabulous courtyard out back with a narrow alley and old bricks, we used this area for Cass and Clint’s engagement shoot.

Jaime & Dale, Spicer's Clovelly Estate, Montville, wedding photographer Brisbane, John Reyment

Spicers Clovelly Estate, Montville was where it all happened for Jaime and Dale. An intimate affair with small numbers, this was a very personal wedding. Chef Cam Matthews delivered a five course degustation; delicious. A dramatic storm at the end of the photo shoot was a dramatic backdrop for their wedding photos. Not long after they booked me, we photographed their engagement shoot at GOMA, a location with so many opportunities for photos.
