I really can’t recommend an engagement shoot enough. They’re a great way to get to know your wedding photographer better. They’re an awesome way to get to spend some fun time together (and get great engagement photos of it!). If you’re nervous about being in front of the camera on your wedding day, this can really help with the nerves. So many clients of mine tell me they don’t look good in front of the camera. Well, that’s not true. You look great! As long as you focus on having a great time with your partner, your wedding photographer will take care of the rest.
Fairfield Boat House
Fairfield Boat House works as a perfect little getaway for a ‘staycation’ weekend in Melbourne but is also a great wedding venue. Emma and Nick had already booked their wedding venue out in Yarra Valley though wanted to go somewhere more local for their engagement photos. Their wedding was set a few months after, though they wanted some photos to use on the day. They also wanted a memory of the two of them hanging out without the full wedding gown and suit.
As I grew up on an island on the west coast of Norway myself, I never say no to a boat trip. Though taking photos in a little rowing boat was a new experience. However, Emma and Nick both did an amazing job in the boat drifting along the Yarra River.
