We recently had a wonderful time shooting the engagement session of Michael and Rosemary at the RJ Hamer Arboretum in the Dandenongs. With some great views and lovely autumn colours, together with a couple very much in love, you couldn’t ask for a better combination. Michael and Rosemary will be getting married in July and we are really looking forward to shooting their wedding!
Even though it may look cold and chilly outside, Autumn is one of the best times to have a photography session, so keep this in mind for next year!
We’re excited to share some beautiful moments from Dipankar and Hsu Mei’s wedding day. Their ceremony gathered close friends and family together at the The Willows in St Kilda, a beautiful Victorian mansion built in 1890 now situated amongst a backdrop of modern high-rise buildings. The sun was out, and it was a gorgeous winters day. Afterwards we visited a number of locations around Melbourne for photos with the bride and groom including the Melbourne Museum and Parliament House.
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/

Rory and Natalie were married at the Church of the Good Shepherd a few weeks ago. Kel and I had a fun time documenting their beautiful wedding ceremony.

As part of our trip to China, we visited the Great Wall of China. The Great Wall was built during various time periods and was designed to protect the Chinese from the invaders who lived in the North. The Great Wall stretches for 6,259km and we walked approximately 10.5kms.
We visited a section called Jinshanling. This particular section of the wall was deserted at the time we visited, which was great! We had heard of stories where the wall was packed with tourists.
Up close, the wall itself is not that special. What is amazing about it is when you can see it stretch out behind and ahead of you for kilometer after kilometer, without an end in sight.
The wall at Jinshanling had a number of watch towers and defensive features such as side walls and horse walls which made it interesting.
Here are 4 images placed together of the different aspects of the wall.
