I really enjoy shooting engagement sessions as it is an opportunity to capture the connection between two people in love with each other.
Jess and Paul were great to photograph and I could see their excitement about getting married in a only a few weeks time!
Here are a few images from our fun and relaxed afternoon at Blackburn Lake in Melbourne, and a quote that captures a little of the essence of love.
‘The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.’ – Helen Keller
Here are a couple of images taken recently using a macro lens. The beauty of this lens is that you can take close up images – perfect for photographing detail.
Also, don’t forget our engagement competition is closing on the 29th of Feb. If you’re an engaged couple, you could win a free engagement photo shoot. For more information, check out this link: www.kellyanthony.com/blog/2012/01/win-an-engagement-photo-shoot/
