I wish I could jump through my computer screen and land in this simply gorgeous Sunshine Coast love shoot. The sweet couple was captured to perfection by their uber-talented photographer friend Bonnie Jenkins on the same beach where they’d tied the knot several years back! It’s filled with personality, love and the most beautiful scenery you could imagine. Be sure to check out the rest right here!

From Bonnie JenkinsRecently I got the chance to photograph two of my dearest friends, Jade and Greg, in Coolum, giving them a piece of the Sunshine Coast to take back home to New York City and Austin, where they are based. Jade is a Sunshine Coast girl who met Greg, the Texan, while in New York. Several years ago, they got married on this same Coolum beach on the Sunshine Coast. The beach is a series of small, secluded bays surrounded by pandanas trees, round pebbles and white sand. As a guest, I also anticipated taking their wedding photographs as a wedding gift. Despite all attempts and efforts, I was sadly unable to attend. Ever since I have been meaning to make this up to them and finally got the opportunity on their recent visit to Sunshine Coast. This was also Jade’s 30th, so we decided to revisit the beautiful location on a sunny afternoon for the photo shoot, followed by some beers and fish and chips on the beach. This was one of the most fun shoots I have done as we were all so relaxed, becoming more like friends catching up and happening to take some casual wedding/couple portraits.
