Engagement shoot in Sydney, Australia

I am often asked how far am I willing to travel to shoot a wedding? Well last week I put this question to the test when I jetted to the other side of the world and arrived in Sydney, Australia.


I was asked over by Tandra and Matt to photograph their wedding, but as I had a few days to spare before the wedding I managed to persuade them to have a little engagement shoot and what better place to go, Sydney Harbour!


This was good for me as I got to do some sight seeing and they got used to me and my camera in time for their big day.


They quickly became very relaxed and I was able to get some really natural looking shots without too much forced posing… just the way I like to work!


After a few shots directly outside the Sydney Opera House we went for a walk around the Botanical Gardens.


It had been quite an overcast afternoon but there was beginning to be a slight break in the clouds.


I like the use of black and white shots for this kind of shoot as it really does add romance and can look more dramatic.


Even the simplist of back grounds can make a photograph interesting to unravel, these were taken infront of a small over hang off cliff face.



The afternoon’s weather just seemed to get better and we were in for a great surprise as the sun started to set.



As the sun was almost fully set the sky turned into an amazing oil painting of colour!


I had to take some shots of the harbour at night, unmissable!


I will be adding a blog article soon showcasing Tandra and Matt’s wedding in the Blue Mountains…
