There was something so incredibly tender about these two, as they wandered through the forrest, demonstrating their terrible dancing skills, and kissing ALOT!!! I felt privileged to be allowed into their world, because it's a really beautiful world actually. They love each other. Truly and deeply. And it just makes everything sweeter.
Pre wedding shoots are THE BEST!! The session started with the classic 'I'm awkward in front of the camera, I don't know if we are going to photograph well', and ended with half naked bodies making out in the water. So I'm gonna call it a win!!! S+K you were flipping hilarious to hang out with, and gorgeous to boot, THANK YOU for letting me join the fun!
Pre wedding sessions are my ABSOLUTE favourites, but I've been super slack in posting them lately, so here is one from last week :-)
The first thing these two noticed about each other was the eyes, and I can see why! When they pause long enough from laughing to gaze at each other, there is a glow and sizzle that lights up the lens!! T&G thanks for letting me into your world x
Give me a vintage bike, a sunset and a couple in love, and I am undone!! This seaside frolick with Shelby and Sean was a dream, and I cannot express how excited I am to capture the next chapter of their joyful journey on their wedding day! Bring it on!!
The humans won the cuteness award by a mere whisker, in this CRAZY fun romp around Peasholm Beach Scarborough, to celebrate the engagement of these two amazing souls! Leigh and Britt, something tells me your marriage is going to be full of fun and affection xxx
Marilyn Monroe and James Dean have nothing on this couple, as they cavorted around Cottesloe beach, in a vintage pre wedding shoot that was equal parts playful and steamy! B+H this was a dream!!!
This is the first and (I'm pretty sure) last time I will ever get the pleasure of attending a house-warming-30th birthday-surprise engagement party! Seriously WAY too much fun for one night, Noelle and Simon, THANK YOU for letting me in on the secret and letting me catch all the shock and joy on your friends faces!!
These two cuties are about to head off for their wedding in the Phillipines, but wanted to showcase the city that they love for their pre wedding photos, and despite some rain showers, Perth didn't disappoint (even the jacarandas were showing off)!! N+R it was so lovely getting to be part of your wedding journey xxx
These two crazy kids were so much fun to follow around the Applecross foreshore, while they made 'not taking life too seriously' a fine art xx Thanks A+D for a great afternoon, I can't wait to photograph your wedding!!!
You couldn't wipe the smiles off these two beautiful faces as they explored Fremantle together. Not only do they share (almost) the same name - Jordan and Jordana, but they share a love for life that is infectious! Guys, I CAN'T WAIT to photograph your wedding!!!
This shoot started with a competition and a challenge... these two cool cats were the winners of the FREE Pre-Wedding Photography Package at the Mounts Bay Sailing Club Wedding Showcase in May, but were convinced that they weren't photogenic. My mission was to prove them wrong! No denying I won hands down :-) We met at the gorgeous Mounts Bay Road figs opposite the Old Brewery, and spent an hour goofing around in the leaves and finding cute little nooks amoungst the trees. Thanks A+N for being such good sports! You are a pretty fantastic couple xx

These two crazy kids (and I say kids with a big smile on my face because they have not lost the joy and laughter of childhood) led me on a merry chase around Oxford Street and Hyde Park, pausing here and there to enjoy each other! As they will soon be dashing off to a romantic elopement on a tropical island they wanted a chance to celebrate their love for each other through the streets their home in Perth. It could not have been a more fun afternoon, a huge thank you K+J for letting me see the world through your eyes!
I literally got goosebumps when Miss P told me their plans for our session. We started at the playground where they used to hang out as youngsters, and at the climbing frame where she first realised she loved him. Then we found the wooden post that he had carved their initials into, and finally to the beachfront where he proposed!! Even the cold and wind couldn't dampen this couples love and enjoyment of each other... when they looked into each others eyes it's like nothing else mattered!
The brief was simple and inspiring: We want to showcase our beautiful home in Perth to our friends and family all over the world! A&F this was an urban adventure and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to photograph and frame your love with this amazing city we get to call home!
I absolutely LOVE it when couples put thought into telling their own unique love stories! These two went to town recreating all the significant moments of their relationship, which took us from the South Perth foreshore, to the waves of City Beach, to a juice bar and finally a kebab shop (with several props and costume changes, including but not limited to, the 'free with purchase' beer caps, and the must have 'back-to-front cat dress'). What can I say, love grows in (sometimes) strange ways! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed capturing them.
These two beach babes are getting married in a few short months, and it was so much fun taking an afternoon to play with them at Floreat Beach. Sarah and Luke thank you for letting me capture your 'beach-loving-fun-loving-skate-loving' love for each other, even if it did involve being pumeled by surf and running up ridiculous sand dunes!
My jaw was sore from smiling on the way home from this engagement session in East Perth. These two know how to have fun, and I CAN NOT WAIT for their wedding day. J&M it was a ridiculous pleasure to photograph you two in all your silly, sassy glory xxx
These two cutie fratooties only have eyes for each other! Their shy, sweet love was absolutely gorgeous to capture and I can't wait for their wedding day. K&L you guys are delightful xxx
Be still my beating heart! Very sneaky peak from yesterdays romp in the waves. I love my job, and I love these two cuties, getting married in a few short months xxx
