Tasmanian Wedding & Portrait Photographer Karen Brown

Battery Point wedding

Lucy and Marco came to Tasmania from Sydney to get married; their family flew in from Hong Kong and mainland China for this small but warm and lovely wedding. We took some wonderful photos walking through the old streets of Battery Point and the Botanical Gardens. I wish you good luck! 我 祝 你 好运!

 

Magic elopement wedding, Mt Roland, Tasmania

What a magic elopement wedding! Barbara and Simon were married the way they preferred: a beautiful, intimate wedding in one of Tasmania’s most stunning places. Right in front of Mt Roland at Eagles Nest Retreat, next to a pond with a cheeky platypus splashing about, they declared their love for each other in their short and personal ceremony. I felt privileged to be part of their day and take these photos.

 

 

Photographing Tasmania’s West Coast

I have just returned from a wonderful week photographing and exploring Tasmania’s rugged West Coast – Strahan, Queenstown and Lake St Clair. I had not been there for quite a while and it was a joy to rediscover its dramatic barren or snow-covered mountains, the grand and not-so-grand buildings, the vibrant colours, its blazing orange moonscape (with its returning trees) and the wild and beautiful wilderness so close. Beauty is around every corner and we loved every moment of our journey there. In my mind’s eye I saw so many photographic possibilities.  Thank you to my three lovely and patient companions Ruby, Harriet and Sarah.

Also a big warm thank you to Mark and Adam at Franklin Manor,  for making us feel so very welcome, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you too to Mikaela, Tahlia and Jenny for their great coffee and conversation at The Coffee Shack in Strahan.

These images were captured with my Canon 5D MkIII and my  two favourite lenses: the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art Series and my Canon 70-200L f/2.8. Edited in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC.

Freycinet, Tasmania

Late afternoon at Freycinet a few weeks ago, lots of interesting things to see in this photo, one of my favourites this summer.

Rebecca & Kyle’s elopement wedding in Sandy Bay

Bec and Kyle travelled from Brisbane for their intimate elopement style wedding on New Year’s Eve here in Hobart. They love Tasmania and decided this was the place for them to be married. I photographed their wedding in a unique spot, the historic Alexandra Battery in Sandy Bay, on a hill overlooking the Derwent. One of our all-time favourite celebrants, Maxine Lowry, made sure the ceremony was both personal and meaningful as she spoke about Bec and Kyle’s love for eachother . Maxine also has a lot of information for couples on her website, as well as her Elope to Tasmania FAQ sheet which is essential reading. After the ceremony we took some time to explore the remains of the old fortification, with its walls and tunnels providing some really interesting texture and atmosphere for our photo shoot.
