As someone who's just moved to the other side of the planet for love, I have a pretty severe soft spot for couples who have done the same.Read More
People always give me a weird, funny kind of look when I tell them their wedding package includes a free engagement session. Most people think it's unnecessary but honestly, it's the most fun you'll have while planning your wedding (other than your hens/bucks I'm sure).
Jayde and Yusof took advantage of my offer and we headed up the Central Coast to Somersby Falls. We talked, danced, laughed, told stories. They told me their story of how they got engaged (and the constant giggle fits that meant the proposal lasted for hours because Yusof would crack up every time he tried to ask) and I shared some stories too. In the end we walked away with some of my favourite photos from an engagement session ever. I can't wait to hang out with these guys in April for their big day at one of my favourite venues.
What. A Year. Honestly, it's been a total whirlwind. I've worked with so many amazing people this year that have really helped me grow and come into my own as a photographer.
I want to thank every family that invited me into their home to photograph their life, every couple that shared their wedding day and the couples that shared other special moments with me too! There's been so many of you and to be involved in such incredible memories is why I do this!
So, now I guess we get onto the picture part right?
Every now and then you just so stumble into a job. This was one of those. Nicole is the friend of a colleague of mine and I was asked to capture their engagement party, and steal them away for a few quick portraits beforehand. Needless to say I was welcomed in with open arms by these two and their super sweet family.
