Best Wedding Photos of 2011

Hi All,

Happy New Year!

The end of 2011 saw me swamped with weddings, which was fantastic! I had the pleasure of being a part of some beautiful, creative weddings. Ranging from Rock n’ Roll Rockabilly, through to Vintage Handmade, and everything in between!

As I’m still working on most of these for my lovely couples, I have not had a chance to blog about lots of fun stuff that’s been going on – but just to keep you all interested here is a sneaky look at some of the best weddings of 2012.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for a more up to date look at what’s going on, or go to our Weddings gallery on the website for more wedding photography.

Our Wedding price list will be getting an overhaul in the very near future, so if your looking at booking for this year get in quick to secure at 2011 prices!

Wishing you all the best for 2012 – and can’t wait to meet and shoot a whole lot more super interesting people this year……

Craig & Kristy’s Gold Coast Wedding

Gold Coast Wedding at The Botanical Gardens

It was one of those days on the Gold Coast – Perfect one minute, pouring the next! Luckily for Kristy and Craig though by the time they got their kit on and were ready to walk out of the door and get married, the clouds parted and the sun came beaming through! Both parties got picked up in classic old vintage buses, in red for the girls and of course blue for boys. They were married in the Botanical Gardens on the Gold Coast and it was magnificent!

Congratulations Craig & Kristy! It turned into an absolutely wonderful day and I’m so glad to have been a part of it with you!! x

Down the Rabbit Hole…

This week we took a whimsical trip to Wonderland, inspired by the truly famous book by Lewis Carroll – Alice in Wonderland. With a boot full of props, Sam and I headed out to the pine forest in search of somewhere for our adventure to take place. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, with just enough wind to make it a bit of fun!

If you have an inspirational idea you would like to shoot, let’s see if we can make it happen!!

Here’s a sneak peak of our trip down the rabbit hole…..

Wedding Mania!

Hi all!
It’s been a while…
Here at Leoni Bolt Photography we have been gearing up for Wedding Season, doing Wedding Expos and meeting with our new brides and grooms preparing for their big days!

Last weekend was the Wedding Expo at Bribie Island hotel, and we were really impressed with the turnout!
The first 200 guest received a gift bag with plenty of goodies. We gave away 4x $100 Wedding Vouchers as well as a $600 Engagement Photo Session Package!

We also ran a competition at our stall for another Engagement Package valued at $295. The winner will be drawn on Tues 12th July, so for those who have entered be sure to check your emails or keep your phone handy that day!!

We met lots of new wedding industry friends from make-up artists to function organisers and even some brilliant fire twirling crews!!
Thanks to everyone that came along and made it such a great day!!

We will also be at The Belvedere Hotel at Woody Point – Redcliffe on Sunday the 10th July if you would like to come and visit. This event is being held by 1st Class Weddings and Events and should be another awesome day! There will be another opportunity to win a $600 Engagement Photo Session Package as well as the continuation of the competition at our stall.

Following this we will be at Greazefest at Rocklea Showgrounds  on Sunday 7th August, so if you like hot cars and even hotter lads and ladies we suggest this will be a great day out.


Stay tuned for some fabbo photo sessions as we will be do another shoot with our friends from Cadillac Barbie this weekend – it’s gonna be a hoot!!!

Till next time!

Kiddlywinks

One of my favourite parts of being a photographer, is getting an insight into people’s lives and personalities, and being able to become a part of that even if it only for a short time. Documenting people and their lives.
This piece is the result of a photo shoot I did of a couple of gorgeous little tykes, the beautiful little boys of a couple of people I’ve known for a very long time.
When I first met Thomas & Max’s parents, we were all just your regular hospitality crew, working crazy split shifts and loving our Sunday Sessions down by the river. I never would have thought back then that these two would become a couple, and then produce these cute as kids!
It’s great when you get to see the children of those you know and spend some time with them, becoming their friend as well. It’s so special to watch their little personalities which are a mixture of their parents, and you can pick out their mannerisms and idiosyncrasies.
I’m excited to see these boys grow up and watch them become little adults. Thanks for hanging out with me Thomas & Max!

Alternative Bridal Couture Fashion Shoot

I was extremely lucky to have been involved in a brilliant collaboration of local businesses recently in Brisbane. We did an Alternative Bridal shoot with some of Brisbane’s hottest models sporting plenty of ink and attitude!

I’d like to thank  Cadillac Barbie – Brisbane’s only alternative salon for getting everyone together and co-ordinating it all, especially Jay for getting everyone involved, but also the rest of the crew that gave up their Sunday to put their creative skills to work on our stunning models.

Casey, Trey Amy and of course Jaz on make-up. You Guys Rock!!
If you want to go visit them and get an awesome style, colour, up-do – whatever, they are more that capable of anything you put to them and can be found through this website: http://www.cadillacbarbie.com/

Aaron from Aaron Singfield Image Solutions also put together some video, the first of which can be seen here:

Now let me introduce our models:

Katie Richardson

Kimberley Amos

Ali Darling

Carly-Jade Haora

Sara Fabel

Ben Trainor

The team at Cadillac Barbie put in a full day with some of them starting at 9am! When I arrived there were half done models everywhere. The team were teasing, curling and hair-spraying like crazy. The place was choccas, but as usual the tunes were pumping and everyone was gearing up for the coming shoot. I’m sure the people walking by were wondering what the hell was going on, with everyone walking in & out inked up and rockin out the massive up do’s! Gotta love massive hair! Especially when it stays there!!

As you can see – Ali’s big hair managed to stay like this all day. I didn’t envy her trying to brush it out when she got home though….
The beautiful old car turned up at 3pm thanks to Adrian from Princess Luxury Classics http://www.princessluxuryclassics.com.au/

We started outside, but of course not long after we got stuck into it and got our groove on, it started to rain. We did manage to get a few good ones in though, before we grabbed the gear and dashed for cover.





This little Pizza Face was a great little helper too – feeding everyone Jelly beans and pizza, and handing out props. I think she ate more pizza than she gave out though!

The Melbourne Hotel across the road was kind enough to let us use their venue to shoot in which was great since there was so many of us! The Melbourne Hotel in general has been done up so beautifully in recent years, with the latest addition – The Lotus Room, styled in Art Deco and the perfect location for our shoot as you can see.




We even had some luscious cakes and flowers dropped in thanks to Deliberately Delicious http://www.deliberatelydelicious.com.au

and Flowers De Lush

alternative cake with and bride

I think everyone who contributed was impressed with the collaboration of like-minded individuals and it was such a fun day! Even if it ended with cake on our face!

I hope we can get together again soon and do another fabulous shoot!! It is so great to be involved with such an awesome team!

Silver Anniversary gift – What a great idea!

These guys wanted to get their parents something really  special for their 25th Wedding Anniversary – so we did a photo shoot!.

What could be a better gift for your parents….really! I mean I’m sure your Dad has given your mum a kettle or a lawn mower for their anniversary before. Or maybe that’s just my Dad! But I’m sure my Mum would have preferred a beautiful family portrait of her now grown up girls.

Anyway I’m sure their parents are going to love it! Hope you all had fun at your party Silver Anniversary party! Congratulations!!!

A day of fun with Isabella.

I spent a fun-filled day with Isabella, reading her books and playing at the beach. She’s a smart little munchkin and you can tell by some of her brilliant expressions!

By the time we got to looking at the photos on the big TV, she had to sit on my lap to watch, and kept saying Me? Me?  I had a great day in Isabella’s world – and would love to share it with you!

Isabella loves her books...
