Engagement Photo Shoot: New Farm Park with Renee and Andrew:
Date: 10th April 2016
Location: New Farm Park, Brisbane
Engagement Photo Shoots are a lot of fun! It is probably the first time that the couple have done something for their wedding that suddenly makes everything seem very, very real, so there is a fantastic, excited ambience about them!
Secondly, people look awesome on their engagement photo shoots! They are spending their afternoon with their fiancee looking good – what’s not to love!
And so it was with Renee and Andrew, an amazingly fun couple who are getting married in August this year and wanted some nice photos to include on their wedding invitations. New Farm Park is an amazing place for an engagement photo shoot and just so happened to be a special place for Renee and Andrew so we met up at the Powerhouse and went through the plans for their big day over a beer and then got snapping! Renee had warned me that Andrew isn’t the most comfortable person in front of a camera (Renee on the other hand very much is!) and that I might have my work cut out. He was a professional! I stood back with my long lens and let the guys be themselves and photographed them as they chatted and cuddled, and after a few minutes Andrew was relaxed and having fun!
There are so many locations in New Farm Park that make for great couple photographs so we chose 3 or 4 different spots and once the guys were a bit more relaxed, I pushed the friendship and grabbed some posed shots. By the end Andrew was as comfortable in front of the camera as he was in the pub! It was so much fun and the time really did fly by.
The park was quite busy but we chose our locations and angles well so that the only people in the shots were the beautiful couple – and don’t they look amazing! Renee’s smile is just awesome!
I asked if there were any shots the guys would like and Andrew was the first to jump in with a few ideas! I love that: I love the enthusiasm and the input! It also means you get the shots you want rather than the photos the photographer wants!
Happily the light that afternoon was awesome and we even got a beautiful sunset later on! I could have kept going all day!
These three photos below are possibly my faves from the engagement photo shoot – Renee and Andrew look so close and in love and the look on Renee’s face as she is showing off her engagement ring is priceless!
But all too soon we had to wrap up, but Andrew said how easy he had found the photo shoot and how much more relaxed he was going to feel at his wedding in August! I think the photos show how much you enjoyed it my friend! I can’t wait until the real thing!
“Hey Andy, thanks so much for yesterday, we had such a great afternoon ( I may have had more fun than Andrew though) haha! He still really enjoyed it which was awesome! He thinks I did extremely well getting on to you for photos… he thinks he will be able to handle wedding photos now!! hehe. Super excited to see your awesome shots!! Renee”
