Sydney Love SessionRaquel and Clayton

This session for Kombi Weddings is one of my favourites, and Raquel and Clayton were the perfect couple for this. They are adventurers at heart and are constantly planning their next road trip, festival or a quick surf in between jobs. I wanted this session to be as rich in colour as they are, and I am so happy with how this shoot came together – with big amounts of love, giggles and the lightness that comes with hanging out with your best friend. This post is dedicated to all the adventurers and ‘beautiful messes’ – the imperfectly perfect person that lives in all of us.

A girl and a boy met at a bookshop…

Like the last post, I’m starting with some of the last photos from this session. It seems fitting as Nancy and Steve met at a bookshop and things blossomed. For this session, we walked around Newtown and explored the streets, the shops and had tea and coffee. These are some of the photos from the session. Just a few more weeks til their wedding day and I can’t wait to capture the bliss ๐Ÿ™‚

Sydney Love SessionFrances and Umbi

Meet Frances and Umbi, two strangers from different corners of the world who met in Sydney and fell in love. It was so beautiful to photograph a couple whose energies bounce off each other with such synchronicity. Their love is undeniable.
Frances is now back in Puerto Rico (just for a short little while) so these photos are for her heart that is missing her man ๐Ÿ™‚

Spice of life

A portrait of two ladies who’ve been friends as long as they’ve been breathing. Sal de la vida es la amistad. “The spice of life is friendship”. Ain’t that the truth!

I’ve been feeling so appreciative of friends who have come into my life. The ones who came and went, and the ones who are still in my adventure story have all given me something, enriching my life and understanding of the world.

A beautiful sunset with Jacquie, Geoff and Bonnie

Jacquie and Geoff are getting married in Mudgee in a few weeks and I can’t wait. Especially after this engagement shoot with their pup Bonnie. Everything came together with their playfulness and the gorgeous sunset!

Helen and Jeshua – Engaged!

Meet Helen and Jeshua, two lovely people I got to photograph twice in one week! This is from our engagement shoot, shot outside by the park close to the studio. This great new cafe The Pig and Pastry opened close by so we started off there and made our way into the park, with Helen’s favourite chair that has traveled from place to place with her. I loved capturing how kooky and playful they were with each other, and that they fulfilled one of my wishes of photographing a couple high up on a tree!Next blogpost will be of the wedding shot at the studio!

Natalia and Adam

Natalia and I met when we were both studying Nursing. She is now a Registered Nurse at Westmead’s Children’s Hospital and I can’t think of a more perfect career for her. She is so warm and I just know she makes all the little ones in the hospital and their parents feel comforted and at ease ๐Ÿ™‚ I love hearing her stories of the kids and their amazing parents and the intimacy of it all. So anyway a few months ago Natalia told me she had gotten engaged! We met up for coffee and had a chat and then she asked me to photograph her wedding day! I was so giddy as her warmth and smiley nature really shines through, as you will be able to see in the photos below. I left this shoot feeling so happy and I think they did too! Natalia and Adam I can’t wait for your special day! Here are a few pictures to hold us off til then ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this post-kiss-lipstick-wipe-offย  ๐Ÿ™‚And I love Adam’s expression hereLots of love to you guys ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait for September! Tessa
