A crisp afternoon at Lady Macquarie’s chair was the perfect setting to capture these warm moments with our elegant couple Ilina and Mark.

Ilina and Mark are two of the most down to earth and lovely people you would ever meet. At the same time they are stunningly photogenic with their natural elegance and charisma and it was an exquisite afternoon!

We braved the wet weather last weekend and it was well worth it to take in the spectacular light show that is Vivid at Circular Quay in Sydney.

I’ll let these little babies speak for themselves on how amazing it was!

I’m super excited about this post! When I met Yana for the first time to talk about her and Ron’s engagement shoot it was as if we were two long lost friends catching up for a “girls night” as Yana so perfectly put it. We struck up an instant friendship! But this isn’t about me… it’s about Yana and Ron, an absolutely amazing couple who have come together from two different sides of the globe and have now made their home here down under.

I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement shoot at iconic Circular Quay before they make the long trip back to Russia for what is promised to be an extraordinary wedding in July.

I want to take the opportunity to thank Yana and Ron for allowing to be a part of their wedding journey here in Oz, it was such an honour and I wish them all the very best for their wedding day!

The National Rose Gardens at Old Parliament House was a perfect backdrop for this enjoyable picnic engagement shoot with lovebirds Lucena and Michael. Canberra is at it’s best in autumn, showcasing the most stunning autumn colours and spectacular sunshine. On this occasion it certainly didn’t disappoint!

Lucena prepared some delicious treats for them to share in these picturesque grounds, roses in bloom, while Michael sweetened her up taking her by surprise with the gift of a stunning Swarovski locket. Lucky girl!

(On a sugar high) ; ) they unleashed their competitive streak on each other with a playful arm wrestle. The action continued later on with their favourite game and a one on one soccer penalty shootout.

Sarah and George were the winners of our Christmas freebie but just quietly, I think we were the lucky ones! Meeting Sarah and George was such a pleasure; they are such a friendly and down to earth couple with so much love for one another.

We were so fortunate shoot Sarah and George’s engagement photos in the Blue Mountains which of course is a piece of Australia’s most breathtaking scenery. But most importantly, it is where this pair calls home. They both grew up in the region and it was the place that brought them together. It’s also memorable for being the place that has started their future together as George proposed to Sarah on the banks of the river.

These two had such a sense of belonging to their environment which shines through so honestly in their photos. They were so comfortable in their surroundings, from sitting on the edge of a cliff at Kings Tableland to walking barefoot through the bush, heels in hand.
