Capturing Love with TWK Studio



Amy and Chris’ wedding was one of the favourites for TWK Studio from the last couple of years. A couple who are really having a romance, not just going through the motions. The special ways they tell each other of the love they have for each other sometimes brings a tear.

Amy and Chris came to see TWK Studio about their wedding photography more than a year ahead of their wedding day, and even from that early meeting, TWK Studio knew their wedding day would be something special, a day that they would love to capture and share. A day they wanted to share with the world… and it didn’t disappoint.

With amazing sweeping views, Amy and Chris’ wedding venue, Maleny Manor was simply spectacular. Owners, Marlene and Simon Murray, looked after the couple making sure everything happened the way Amy and Chris had planned it to.

Krista arrived early enough to catch Amy taking her four legged flower girls, Bella and Lily for a walk. During the ceremony, the two of them were just as excited as Amy and Chris.

When TWK Studio started the wedding album design process with the couple Amy was a truly “hands on” bride. She had always been enthusiastic and very keen to make sure her wedding album was just the way she wanted it.

TWK Studio knew that the images they captured would bring Amy and Chris memories for the rest of their lives.

“What if this moment could last forever?”
