Engagement Photography Brisbane
Every now and again I will do a photo shoot that really stands out. Hayley and Shawn’s engagement and pet photography shoot was one of those times!
I had arranged the time and location with Shawn and was then asked if it was OK to bring their pet ducks. I presumed this was a classic autocorrect error, so said ‘yeah, dogs are fine’. Nope, they brought ducks! In nappies!
The fact that Hayley and Shawn had dressed so spectacularly for the afternoon made the photos even more fun! Normally two ducks in nappies would dominate a pet photography shoot, but not this time!
The ducks (both named after a Tokyo suburb!) behaved immaculately! And once they finished their modelling duties we concentrated on the beautiful couple and their engagement!
To say that Shawn rose to the occasion is an understatement! Generally boys are at a shoot under duress and can’t wait until it’s over! Not Shawn! He loved posing and had a million different ideas!
The low afternoon light was amazing. We started on the jetty then headed to the Western side of the Reserve for the sunset. We weren’t disappointed!
The sun put on a show for us, and just as I thought the shoot had peaked, Hayley and Shawn went swimming!
Quite literally in Shawn’s case! Before I could blink the shirt was off and Shawn was submerged! I’ll leave the Daniel Crag images that followed to your imagination!
I drove home smiling like a fool! It really was the photo shoot that had everything! Pet photography, engagement photography, couples photography, glamour, ducks, nappies! Thank you so much for making my Monday afternoon so memorable guys! You both rock!
The only question now is: how do you top that at the wedding?!
