As I was going through various enquiries, Christopher’s really stunned me with the raw honesty and delicate vulnerability. When I got a chance to chat to him on the phone, I felt compelled to document their love story with Maani. In our world full of negativity and dishonesty, it is so refreshing to witness genuine love and admiration for each other.
And in the days leading up to this couples photography session that was carefully planned on the beach, it was raining cats and dogs, which is not unusual for this time of the year in Melbourne. And let me tell you that there was practically no way it could have been rescheduled. Luckily, the weather gods cooperated and I could witness this all encompassing love and capture it to be shared with the world.
It’s been already scientifically proven that we absorb energy from others and so it was absolutely amazing to be part of this. I don’t think there are proper ways to express how much I love being part of this and documenting those amazing moments together.
These are my absolute favourites from the session with these two gorgeous people.

Oh how I love couples photography sessions… not only because I get to create a space for my clients to reconnect and have that captured, but also because proceeds from this particular session were donated to a child battling leukemia.
It was my absolute honour to capture the special day of Brooke and Shannon – and how can it be any different when you clients look like movie stars? Special mention should go to Archie and Jenson who were no less thrilled than Brooke and Shannon themselves. I just love how they were actively participating in this intimate and emotional celebration of love.
