One of my all time faves, this engagement shoot of Matt and Anita in St Kilda was just sublime! We chose the iconic Esplanade Hotel or as its affectionately known as ‘The Espy’ with its eclectic look and kitsch furniture, for the perfect backdrop. Being a Monday night and just about had the whole place to ourselves. An outfit change into something more summery was made before we headed down to the beach and frolicked along the sand during golden hour.
Matt, hailing from Alaska and Anita from the Phillipines met whilst Matt was on post in the Phillipines and they have been inseparable ever since. The pair are used to spending long periods apart as well as together. They both love Melbourne for coffee, food and culture. So on a holiday here, what better way than to remember their time here than with an engagement shoot.
But what makes a shoot in St Kilda truly special is the laid-back and relaxed vibe of the area. This isn’t about stiff poses or forced smiles. It’s about having a great time together, enjoying each other’s company, and I was really able to capture Matt and Anita’s true personalities.
An engagement shoot is the perfect way to really get comfortable in front of the camera before the big day. How many really amazing photos do you have of you and your partner that aren’t selfies? By the end of the shoot, you will be spoilt for choice with so many gorgeous images!
So, if you’re looking for an engagement shoot that’s filled with fun, relaxation, and vibrancy, St Kilda is the place to be. Let the scenery, the atmosphere, and the undeniable love between you and your partner shine through in your photos. It’ll be a memorable experience that you’ll treasure for years to come.
If you like what you see so far and think we'd be a great fit, I'd love to hear from you!
Photography is a celebration of love, life, laughter and family. It is capturing the joy, the tears, the raw emotions and the connections with our loved ones. I love to photograph people and places, photography is not just my job, it’s my passion.
