Christine Jade Photography » Brisbane Wedding Photographer

I was recently approached to do a fashion photoshoot for the relaunch of an online streetwear website. With my love of fashion, a passion for portrait photography & a genuine drive to support local businesses, of course I said YES!

A Stgfsh started when founding owner, Josiah decided to turn one of his design course assessments into a real business. Originally the business was operating in Manila, but due to personal commitments, shirt production was put on hold for a few years.

After much deliberation, Jake and Kris joined A Stgfsh as business partners, to help Josiah relaunch it here in Australia. Josiah and Jake designed the new range of shirts together. And Kris manages the business side of things and works on the website.

You might be wondering how the name came around. “Astig” in Filipino is slang for tough or cool. When Josiah lived in the Philippines he owned heaps of fighter fish. So he combined the two words to make A Stgfish.

Head over to their website www.astgfsh.com.au to check out their original designs & to make a purchase.

Keep your eye on this awesome streetwear fashion label. They are currently working on new designs to be released in the near future!

 

Rachel and David planned their entire Brisbane wedding from Sydney! After only being in contact via email and phone calls, it was so good to finally meet this lovely couple for the first time on their big day.

If I had to describe their wedding in three words I would say it was traditional, romantic and elegant.

After the happy couple tied the knot at St Patrick’s Church in Fortitude Valley, we had fun playing with some coloured smoke, then made our way to Wilson’s Outlook for sunset. It was sweet to see how affectionate these two were. I rarely had to ask them to “kiss” or “hold each other” for photos. It would just happen naturally. I really love it when couples are just being themselves in front of the camera like that.

Reception was held at Customs House in Brisbane City. With its soaring ceilings and amazing food, it’s clear to see why this venue is a popular choice. After the happy newly weds & guests had torn up the dance floor, everyone headed out the back to light some sparklers & to celebrate the end of an amazing day!

“Emerging From Darkness”

This was my first time shooting low key photography in a studio environment. It was refreshing to step away from my usual love of “natural light” portraiture & try a moody & more dramatic style of shooting. There’s something intriguing about low key photography. It’s like telling a story, without sharing too much visually.
