Jessica & Ryan – Lovers in Centennial Park

Jess & Ryan came to me to shoot their wedding in August this year and also wanted to include an engagement or ‘love’ session prior to that.  It’s a great way to get to know each other, feel comfortable in front of the camera and make use of your hair & makeup trials !

These lovebirds were just too cute for words.  We arrived at dusk and got some perfect light and they had a great time (so they told me !).

I love doing engagement shoots and wish more couples would opt for it – having some gorgeous pics of the two of you in a more casual setting is a lovely keepsake – as well as giving you confidence on how the photos will be on the wedding day.

We did all these shots in picturesque Centennial Park Sydney.

Jasmine & Patrick Engagement

A while back I did a competition in conjunction with Polka Dot Bride and Jess from Oscar & Ruby for a free styled engagement session to the couple with the most creative mood board entry.  Patrick & Jasmine won, and their shoot was showcased on Polka Dot Bride here.

I realise that not everyone would have seen that post so I thought it best to do one of my own on this blog before I post their wedding pictures which are equally gorgeous and being published in the next edition of Bride to Be magazine.

Patrick & Jasmine love the camera and wanted to do something a bit dramatic and playful so vintage glamour was our style.  I loved the results as the ones at The Commons underground with studio lighting  are quite different from what I would usually shoot at an engagement session.

Enjoy !

Heidi & Christian – Engagement Photos

I’ve already posted Heidi & Christian’s wedding photos here but have not yet blogged their engagement photos (although Polka Dot Bride showcased them here) – a bit topsy turvy posting them the other way around but it’s that kind of a day today – and there are shots here that were not included in the PDB post.

We decided to go to the beach for this session as we would be in the city for their wedding photos and wanted them to be different.  Milo, Heidi & Christian’s gorgeous puppy came with us, as he is very much a part of their family.  He also showed up after the ceremony on the wedding day!  So cute.

These two people are really peas in a pod – just the sweetest couple.

The Camellia gardens

This photo has reminded me to visit The Camellia Gardens this Spring.  I’m so looking forward to spring already – lots of beautiful weddings and locations as well as playful family time with my nearest in dearest up and down the coast.

This is from Stacey & John’s engagement session ages ago – in fact earlier this year they welcomed a little girl Ivy into the world – congratulations guys x

With love,
