Judy and Chris's engagement

My favorite thing to photograph – love
Chris and Judy got engaged so planned to celebrate their love with their friends and family throwing an engagement party. They also thought it would be great to do their engagement shoot on the same day. The party was held just out of town on 28 acres of bushland. The perfect  location for a shoot especially when lit with the late afternoon golden backlight. We had a easy, relaxed afternoon cruising from location to location with Judy and Chris doing what they do best – love each other.  The afternoon flowed beautifully.
After the shoot we were having a chat and Judy and Chris shared with me the story of how Chris proposed…  at the time, Judy and Chris were renovating. Chris built a concrete love bench and he wrote in the wet concrete – will you marry me. The permanence of the concrete being a symbol of forever. I can just image this story being shared from generation to generation along with future generations being shown the simple, beautiful words written in Chris’s handwriting. I hope these photos are shared in the same way.
It was a beautiful night, full of love, friendship, family and fun and somehow with their wedding planned for next year I think they are just getting warmed up.

  • This family walk this beach most afternoons. They have their special spots along the way – the log that the kids balance along and the rocks. They enjoy watching the kids play while the sky turns from blue to purple to pink. In years to come when they look at these images hopefully they will remember not only the day we did the shoot but also all the other days they were there as a family. Hopefully they will remember how it felt to be there.

  • Tis the season for family visiting. It’s a great opportunity to document the love you share. We have limited spots left for the holiday season so get in quick :)
  • When I photographed Sophie as a 3 year old she had all the moves so I knew she was going to be incredible to shoot for her graduation. She's simply stunning!
  • When I first met Teal to chat about her graduation photoshoot I thought her Mum looked familiar... turns out I photographed Teal when she was about 1. How time flies (and how old do I feel). This was the last shot of the day and is my favourite!

  • The good thing about having a sister who is a photographer is she takes photos of your kids…. the bad thing about it is, you never see the photos she takes. Just ask my sister, she’ll tell you all about it. All of that changed this week when my sister and niece viewed the images I shot only two weeks ago. Yassss, Aunty of the year!

  • My favourite thing to capture... hands down is love. If you look for it, it’s everywhere.
  • Family coming together really is the best part about Christmas. This year I am not going away, so if you want to document having everyone in the same spot get in contact now to lock in a shoot. Megan.
