{He Asked, She Said Yes}

I recently did a photo shoot that was actually a secret proposal 🙂 I had wanted to do one of these for quite some time and was thrilled when Basil contacted me.

Isabel (his now fiance) and Basil’s sister had “gifted” Basil a couples photo shoot for his birthday (well so Isabel thought) with the help of Basil’s sister this was all set up and was in fact Basil’s idea and his gift to Isabel. Are you with me? haha

He had planned to propose to her during this photo shoot so we could capture it all. It was quite fun planning & scheming and all along Isabel had absolutely no idea (even when Basil secretly gave the ring box to my husband and then my hubby had to get it back to him right before he proposed) there was a lot of secret business happening that day.

We started out at the City Botanic Gardens (which is where Isabel wanted to have the photos).

And then we went to Victoria Gold Complex (for the proposal) which is where this lovely couple had their first date. We played dumb when Isabel had mentioned that Basil thought it might be nice to have a few photos at this spot.

Then the nerves kicked in…

We felt so honoured to able to capture this precious moment in their lives. Congratulations to such a wonderful couple!

2014 – The Year in Review

2014-07-30_0213

 

I cannot believe we are now very much in the year of 2015!

We had a wonderful time throughout 2014, meeting & photographing many new & some regular clients. Its always an honour to be a part of capturing these special moments in peoples lives.

We decided for 2014 to take on a bit less (but it still ended up being a crazy big year) but its was an adventure and we are so grateful for it! We got to do a wedding in Melbourne and also one up north at Paronella Park which was an amazing experience. Thank you so much to all of our clients and followers, we appreciate your love & support so much!

Now very much specializing & focusing on weddings and engagement sessions, I still LOVE doing maternity sessions and then the odd glamour shoot here and there. I felt like I didnt really have the time to do many shoots just for my own creativity and fun which is something I want to take the time out for this year to do. So stay tuned…. but in the meantime please enjoy looking through some of our highlights throughout 2014.

And for those interested, here is our Year in Review from 2013.

Ok so I don’t like to be too biased with my photo shoots but I must say this engagement sessions has been one of my all time favourites to date! Erika is actually my amazing hair dresser – go check out Alexander Woulfe. But a side from that she along with her fiance are just absolutely stunning, genuine & loving people.

By looking at these photos you WOULD think they are both models but no, they are just everyday (well plus some extra gorgeousness) people like you and me who had their engagement shoot and TOTALLY rocked it!

They wanted to have a bit of a 1940’s/50’s theme to their shoot as they both love getting dressed up so it was perfect for them and I love that the photo shoot ended up with a bit of a Notebook style/theme to it. (which is one of my all time fav movies!)

I was oohing and aahing through their whole shoot and pretty much didn’t want it to end. They were both a delight to photograph and to say I am super excited about their wedding next year would be an understatement!

Enjoy their images below…

This beautiful couple were just divine to photograph! It was the perfect location with a great set up along with thoughtfully put together outfits. I love every single image of theirs! We are very much looking forward to their wedding coming up in October of this year.

{John & Brodie} E-Session 5.3.14

I am finally getting around to blogging some sessions from a couple of months ago & with this gorgeous couples wedding fast approaching I thought I’d try and quickly get up a post of their engagement photos.

Both such a delight to photograph! You can see the love they have for one another so clearly in all of these images. I am super excited for their wedding day. They were both relaxed & just happy to be with one another. One thing that also stood out to me was the respect John had for Brodie. I love seeing guys treat their beautiful other half with respect and love.

Enjoy looking through some of their stunning photos!

We were really hoping the rain would hold off on this day, we managed to get some gorgeous images in the forest before heading down to the beach and the storm clouds were rolling in, we hit quite a lot of wind (thats an understatement) and then the rain decided to fall on us lol but this couple were fabulous, the rain wasn’t going to make us quit and we managed to get some beautiful scenic shots & well the storm clouds always make for fabulous photos anyways! Great job Kandy & Dylan, you were both absolute troopers! Lets hope for better weather on the wedding day though 🙂

We had heaps of fun at this engagement session. The plan was to have a bit of everything, confetti, water balloons, paint…. we were all geared up to start the paint fight (started filling balloons with paint), they even had their white clothes on so the paint would stand out… to then realise that the paint wasn’t water-based and could cause some serious staining so we kind of had to skip the paint idea! But non the less we still had heaps of fun and got some good old fun & crazy photos of this cute couple having a water fight and getting VERY wet in the process (of course)

We are looking forward to having heaps of fun on their wedding day also (probably won’t be including water & paint) but I am sure there will be lots of laughs, silly faces and memories created.

Andy & Renee are getting married in April of this year and we cannot wait! I have had the honour of knowing Renee for many years and I couldn’t be more happier for her & Andy! They are perfect for each other, so in love and so respectful of one another & not to mention both ridiculously good looking and photogenic! You can see the love they have for each other  & life just by looking at these photos. I was so stoked when they said they wanted to do some fun “powder paint” photos!

We all had such a wonderful afternoon and it has made me even more excited to capture their special wedding day. I know that Renee is going to look absolutely divine and I wont be able to wipe the smile of their faces! Enjoy looking through their huge gallery of images!
