Luisa + Simon’s Engagement Portraits

I love engagement photo sessions because they’re a great way for me to get to know the two special people before their big day.

Learning the tale behind a relationship is half the fun of being a wedding photographer, and allows me to tell the story of the Bride and Groom through photos. Building a professional relationship before the big day also helps me get to know them better, and lets the couple get used to being in front of the camera.

Luisa and Simon’s eyes first met across the dance floor at one of Fitzroy’s well-known bars, The Night Cat.

It was Luisa that organized their first date, and for a hint of romance and style took Simon on a stroll down Hardware Lane for dinner.

The date was finished with the stunning view over Melbourne from the Eureka Tower. Luisa told me that even from that first date it was like she had known Simon forever.

‘‘From that first date onwards we were inseparable and just couldn’t get enough of each other.’’ It was through this amazing connection that they instantly fell in love and spent as much time with each other as possible.

I love that you can see through the images how Luisa and Simon are best friends as well as romantic partners – and soon to be husband and wife! I can’t wait to photograph their Melbourne wedding next year!
