This shoot incorporates both as these peoples personality and I love incorporating couples personality into their photo shoots. It shows who they are as individuals and how they like to interact with their world. This engagement shoot was no exception. We used the ever popular Toowoomba's Queens Park . Late in the afternoon for that soft golden light. Leslie is top bloke and he is a fan of Captain America . There some cool photos with Leslie showing off some his memorabilia. I did composite where I included some of the Avengers I did this for free because he is such a fun. I think he is a bigger fan than me so it was a labour of love.

But it wasn't all Leslie and his love of the Avengers. They are both NRL fans. Leslie is a North Queensland Cowboys and Mel is a Brisbane Broncos fan.

Luke & Taylah

How much in love are these guys. This is what made their photography session so much fun. We did this shoot very late in the afternoon and into the early evening. Not only did we have great light but Queens Park Toowoomba has lots of lights at night. I feel it gives the place a Paris feel. The local Cobb & Co Museum has beautiful lights at night as well. This gave us endless choices of locations we could even use the same location twice but night it has totally different feel.
It was a shoot with lots of creativity and collaboration and everyone had fun and Luke was happy because he didn't have to smile. Which made him smile and have fun.

Chris and Lilly

The University of Southern Queensland or U.S.Q. was the location for this engagement shoot. Lilly and Chris are the happy couple.

Decided on U.S.Q.. because the Japanese Gardens is located beside U.S.Q.. Lilly has coloured ranking belts in 3 different martial disciplines and with martial arts being such a big part of her life the Japanese Gardens just seemed the logical choice.


We also able to use some of cool architecture at U.S.Q.to make other fun photos too.
Of course there is a YouTube slideshow.

Brett and Rebecca

Over spring I have been doing so many engagement shoots. They are really becoming very popular. Here is one did in September in Queens Park Toowoomba. The lovely couple are Brett and Rebecca. I met this couple at the Highfeilds wedding Expo" which is hosted by Event Illusions a local wedding hire company which based here in Toowoomba.

Queens Park is always poplar with young couples its located in the middle of Toowoomba, so its always easy to find a car park. We did this session a week before Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers which is major tourist event here in Toowoomba. The Toowoomba Regional Council do a awesome job with all parks and gardens.

The late afternoon light always makes for beautiful photos. It was great to see it was a couple shoot, even though they had a beautiful daughter, wo did manage to sneak in and steal the attention. It was great that they focused on them as couple. Of course it was relaxed and we had lots of fun. Its exactly one today until they get married…

Jack & Sarah Engagement Photography Shoot

Image
Its been the season of engagement photography shoots. I like doing engagement shoot its great to really meet the excited couple. We also get know each other I get to see them interact in a casual environment with no pressure of the wedding day. Engagement is important because its the last time you will be photographed as individuals.

Anyway this is Jack & Sarah and their engagement shoot. We went to Gatton's Apex Park where is a man made lake. Have lots of locations in one area is real luxury. Late afternoon is my favourite time to shoot.

Jack is arborist and suffered a work place  injury where a branch hit him in the face. It didn't slow home down to much and healed to make his big day.

The kids came to session too. They were great and jumped in with Jack & Sarah, being a bit cheeky makes it easy too.

You can check out there slide show YouTube

They also have a gallery on my website Jack & Sarah Gallery

Cooby Dam Engagement Shoot

Image
Hey this is engagement shoot I did at Cooby Dam for Dave & Belinda. Cooby Dam is located just 15mins outside Toowoomba.

We chose Cooby Dam because it has so many locations within walking distance. We used the dam wall, bush walks and evne industrial looks. Cooby Dam has been here for over 60 years and old pump houses which also provides even more locations.

Just as side note Cooby Dam was the location of the lunar radio receiver for the first lunar landing in 1969.

We did the engagement shoot in late the late afternoon for the soft light. I am really pleased with this engagement Dave & Belinda are such a great they trusted me when I had an idea. These 2 are so glamourous some of their photos could easily be a add for a jeans company.

I did a YouTube slideshow for them so they can share with their friends on their smart or on their computers.
