It had been a long time coming, and just a couple of days before their wedding but we finally managed to all get together and take some engagement photos! I'm so glad that I mostly insist on shooting a Beloved session before the wedding day. It makes people just that little bit more comfortable about having their photo taken on their special day, takes that little niggling thought out of the equation that it's going to be awkward or uncomfortable! I can then convince them of how amazing they look and heaps more fun is had on the wedding day. Thanks for making the effort to drive to Dunsborough from York for this shoot you two!! I love these pix! xxx Rae
Look how happy these two are!? Jodie & Chad headed down to my neck of the woods a couple of weeks ago to have a mini-pre wedding escape before their destination wedding in Bali and to catch up with me for some engagement photos! We mucked around at the beautiful Injidup beach for an hour or so before sunset, my favourite time of day, to capture their excitement and love for each other! I am so grateful that they have asked me to come along to Bali to capture their special day(s) and hang out with them on the beautiful island for a few days together. It also JUST so happens that my birthday is the very next day and my amazing friends have decided to fly over and meet me there to help celebrate! What a lucky girl I am.. My first international wedding AND a birthday in Bali.. bring it on! I am beyond excited that my job takes me to places like this.. Thank you life!! xxx Rae
What a beautiful soul to photograph. It was such a pleasure spending an afternoon photographing this extraordinary woman, and so easy with the help of her support/styling friend Ashleigh!! Hayley (aka hot mamma) decided to celebrate her last pregnancy by having a maternity portrait session with me and I'm so glad she did! Although there was a minor hiccup at the end with a freak wave breaking over the rocks and almost drowning all of us (including my camera gear.. ouch) but we'll let that one slide and continue to see the funny side!! Scroll to the bottom to see the last frame before we all nearly drowned and then the post drenching selfie..
Loads of love,
