Natalie & Luke’s engagement session started out in Centennial Park amongst the pine trees, then as the rain got heavier we headed to nearby Paddington Reservoir to take advantage of a bit more cover. Still, it was a lovely relaxed afternoon & the way they look at each other shines through :)
This shoot took a lot of scheduling, but we got there eventually. It was originally booked in for a sunny Saturday back in March last year, but when I very unexpectedly went into labour 11 weeks early, we had to postpone. A few months later after I had my daughter and life settled down, we scheduled it for a weekend in June. But then the makeup artist ended up having her baby too! So when it started raining 3rd time round, there was no stopping us!
Fun fact: You may recognise Natalie as one of Louise’s bridesmaids a few years ago. There is no better testimonial for a photographer than to be hired again in the same family!
If you’ve never been to Paddington Reservoir before, it’s definitely worth a little wander inside. It could easily be missed from the street. However, once you walk down the stairs, it’s like a little rustic oasis amidst the bustle of the city.
Stay tuned for the wedding!
