Purple flowers, Black suits and Lace... {Mt Isa Wedding Photography}

All these things have the makings of a royal affair, an regal event, a day to cherish...and that's exactly how it was for Amanda & Adrian and for all who shared in their special day...

The colours...


The details...


The friendships...


And of course their love...



What more could you want on your special day???

I'll try and share again soon but for now have a great weekend! =)

Talk about funky! {Mt Isa Family & Children Photography}

These guys really put the FUN in funky, they were dressed to impress and boy can they work it!


Mum and dad don't scrub up too bad either check it out, Peggy you are stunning!!


All in all not a bad Friday afternoon's work right? We all survived the cold and wouldn't you say it was worth it for a moment like this...


Hope you enjoy your sneak peek, I'll be in touch soon with your gallery details :)

Have you noticed a few changes?

So you've probably worked out that Memories by Carol has undergone a bit of a makeover and a name change, I am now Carolina Gonzalez Photography. The name change has been a long time coming and I hope you can appreciate the change of scenery and hopefully you'll come along with me on this new journey :)
The new name also means the website has a new address but it is still the same site so here's the new one to bookmark: the old address will still be valid for a short time to give you (and me) time to adjust :)

Please bear with me as i make all these changes, there's a fair bit of behind the scenes work that is still taking place including new collections and products coming for my new and existing clients so please be patient and keep watching this space.

In the meantime stay tuned for a couple of sneak peeks coming up shortly!

Family Times... {Mt Isa Family & Children's Photographer)

Meet Robert and Melissa, and their two remaining kids at home...

these beautiful people are our pastors so i see them every week, week in and week out in fact LOL! The great thing is that we're always learning new things about other people and it wasn't until we had some time outside of our norm that i got to see what their family dynamics are like, how they interact and what makes them unique as a family.

Robert likes to make his family laugh and Melissa his perfect companion likes to laugh at him- i mean with him- and together they work harmoniously and totally compliment each other...


and the kids well they probably don't work as harmoniously together as mum and dad do but today they were both obliging to me...


Under the threat of smooches from Mum he even smiles for me...


And well... this Miss is just gorgeous in her own right!


So thank you Robert & Melissa for letting me capture your beautiful family, i hope you enjoyed your sneak peek and i'll see you again real soon... I do have to share my favourites for the day first though, i think they'll make you smile too ^_^


Perfect Day...{Mt Isa Wedding and Engagement Photographer}

I thought it was time to show you the more important details of the sneak peek i posted a few days ago, the actual day this gorgeous couple professed their love for each other. It was truly a perfect day...

A long time ago Peter and Katrina were introduced by Peter's sister, they made each other laugh and maintained a friendship held together by the humble telephone and the promise of what might be... Well that promise came to fruition on this day.

Peter and Katrina chose to see each other for a 'first look' in a private room before we took off with the rest of the bridal party for some photos and i was privileged to capture them with no one looking...



After these special moments we escaped to do some more 'formal' shots with the rest of the bridal party....

Peter was beaming...





Katrina you are stunning!



We then had to get on with the legalities of the day...



And as always i like share my favourite capture of the day did i tell you this day was perfect? you be the judge...


Thanks for letting me share in your beautiful day Peter and Katrina, it was truly perfect! You'll be hearing from me soon :)

Today it's Mothers Day... {Mt Isa Family, Children and Baby Photography}

So Happy Mother's Day to all of you doing the hardest job of all and doing it with joy and a smile on your faces most of the time ;-)

So on this day it just so happens I have a sneak peek here for one such special mum and i thought what better way to celebrate Mum's day than with a cute pink sneak peek?

Six and and half months of pure cuteness!


All rolled into this ^_^

Samples of your Wedding Memories... {Mt Isa Wedding Photographer, QLD}

Just thought I'd share a sneak peek into Jess & Sean's wedding album (with their permission of course).

If it were possible for Jess to look more beautiful than on the day then this is the only way, mounted on a black background with flourishes as gorgeous as she is and on the arm of the most handsome man she's laid her eyes on...

Capturing little personalities...{Mt Isa Children & Family Photographer, QLD}

When I get my camera out for any little person (or big person for that matter) my aim is the same, to capture that essence that makes that makes that person THAT person. This is sometimes easier said than done but when i capture it it's perfect!

A Little Bit of Magic... {Mt Isa Engagement & Wedding Photographer}

There's something I just love about a good engagement shoot, don't know if it's meeting new people (even though I'd met these two) or just getting to know them better as a couple, or the anticipation of an upcoming wedding but whatever it is, i just enjoy them from beginning to end!

I'm really hoping Adrian & Amanda, although a little shy & reserved in front of the camera walked away with a little bit of magic after the shoot, i know sure did! Check it out :)

Long way to travel... {Mt Isa Family Photographer}

This family came all the way from Canberra JUST for a family shoot! Well... that and for some family time with me and my family ^_^

Meet my brother and family


Since we have hardly any photos of them as a family i thought now is as good a time as any to capture them! They're so easy to shoot and just went with the flow taking in their new surroundings and just being themselves...




Here's my favourite from the shoot, not bad for over 20yrs of marriage right?

Thanks for indulging me and i hope you like your sneak peek =D
