Caterina & Ade | Engaged

A few weeks ago I photographed Caterina & Ade’s engagement session at Carriageworks and Centennial Park. What made this session a little extra special, is it served a double purpose as a maternity session as well!

We started out at Carriageworks in Eveleigh Railway Workshops for some urban shots. It’s such an incredible place to explore when there’s no one else around. The rustic heritage rescued from the brink of dereliction. So many incredible lines and little vignettes.

There’s pure bliss in the way they look at each other.

A quick outfit change and we headed off for Centennial Park for a completely different look and feel for the remainder of the session.

I just love shooting at Centennial Park. There’s so much variety throughout the park and you can get so many different looks in the one place.

Even amidst all the big smiles and laughing shots, it’s nice to pare it back to little sweet and tender moments like this!

These two are going to be such wonderful parents, I can’t wait to share their wedding.

**EDIT** If you’ve come across this blog post a little more recently, you can check out their gorgeous lunchtime wedding at Balmoral.

As she started getting dressed, the room filled with her relatives who serenaded her with traditional Greek songs.

The ceremony was held at the Greek Orthodox church in Surry Hills.

Daniel was looking very relaxed and happy as he waited for his bride to walk down the aisle.

Louise & Todd | Wedding

Louise & Todd were married a few weeks ago on what turned out to be a gorgeous day, despite some terrible clouds in the morning.

I started out with the girls in Bondi Junction. Louise wore a stunning dress by Karen Willis Holmes!
