In less than 4 hours these two love birds will tie the knot. I always try and post a couples engagement session before their wedding but this time Ive really cut it fine! I live by the bay in Melbourne and love it. I was so excited when Fiona and Craig jumped onboard my sunset bay shoot. The session started off with a coffee in one of my favourite cafes and then proceeded to walk down to the beach. We really scored with the weather and the overall shoot was super easy and chilled. At the moment it doesn’t look like there will be sun when they tie the knot but Im not worried because these two will photograph well no matter what. Stay tuned for a sneak peek from this afternoon…

When I was 18 I worked in a pharmacy photo lab. I kind of loved it. Not only did I get to print all my photos at a discounted rate during work hours, I helped others preserve their memories too. That year I filled at least 4 photo albums. Ok so I admit the process of putting them in the album was not so fun but looking back on all that I had done in the year gave me a sense of accomplishment. Being 18 was fun and Im glad I can relive those memories. It kind of makes me feel bad that I haven’t yet made my own wedding album. I always said I would and then I just didnt have the time, the cash or the motivation. Now its been over a year and a half and yep I still haven’t made one. The good news? I have started to create some beautiful albums for my clients so they don’t have to make the same mistake as me.

I love making albums… its funny because as a photographer I have the responsibility to document a story with images so it makes sense for me to put that story together. I did some in-depth research when deciding on an album supplier. I wanted good quality albums that had a great range of cover options. I finally found one that I just adore and look forward to creating more beautiful keep sakes for all those interested. My wedding albums start at $1295 and come in a all sorts of sizes and cover options (including photo cover, fabric and leather finishes).

It can be challenging convincing a couple to come out and play during Winter. Its usually freezing, there is always the chance of rain and who really wants to venture out when its so much nicer indoors. Scott + Sarah braved the outdoors for their Winter engagment shoot and even though the sun may not have been shining this cute couple were.
