Engagement portraits~ Edinburgh gardens

I am a big fan of Melbourne. I grew up here, but I don’t think I really appreciated Melbourne until I went away for a while. Five years away can make you realise what you had and didn’t fully appreciate. It’s the small things. My friends in Queensland think that Melbourne weather is madness: Why would you live somewhere that gets so cold? Well, for starters, since we get so much dreary weather, we really go out and celebrate the warmth!

I noticed this on Sunday; the weather was balmy and it felt like everyone was out and about. Cafe tables on the sidewalk were buzzing and Edinburgh Gardens, where I did the photos for this shoot, was brimming with people playing cricket, walking dogs, having picnics and riding bikes. It was so nice to be out and about enjoying it with everyone.

Sarah-Jane and Adrian also have a fond affiliation with Melbourne and wanted it to play an important feature role in their wedding and engagement session photographs. Their first date was actually at Eureka Tower and Adrian proposed to Sarah- Jane in Edinburgh Gardens overlooking the city. Hence, it seemed fitting to do their engagement session at the Edinburgh Gardens!
