The day when Melissa rang my number, like many other brides, she asked if I was available on her big day to capture those moments that would be precious to her heart on such an occasion. The sad news was, that I wasn't :( I distinctly remember my heart sinking and feeling sad... I always tell brides that I find it incredibly difficult to say no, or tell them that I cannot share their big day with them. Because I know what an honor it is to be chosen. It's even harder when I sense a bride is as bubbly over email as she would be in person. And Melissa was one such bride.
So, I was incredibly stoked when she had decided she would love to do her engagement session with me!! I always love it when brides whose wedding day I cannot share, say to me they would love to share their engagement/pre-wedding session with me because it still gives me a chance to get to know them, discover what they are like as a couple, how they love each other, and chat endlessly about the lovely details they have planned for their big day. I guess I'm a real girls girl :)
Anyhow, Melissa and Marcus spent a chilly afternoon with me (we were constantly swapping between wearing the coats and not wearing the coats! haha) to get some of the following shots which ended up being some of my favourites from the day. Melissa and Marcus! have a beautiful wedding, and I say it again - you are NOT out of shape AT ALL ;) Thank you for allowing me to document part of your relationship in Sydney, even though I could not share the big day with you in KL. Regardless, I know it will be fantastic!
And here is that photo that I just love to bits :) Thank you Melissa and Marcus for being so awesome in getting it perfect in less than 10 seconds before any security had any chance to come and chase us away... haha!
Because Melissa and Marcus are getting married in Malaysia, they wanted to get some Sydney icons in the photos. Here's one :) You can find the other one at the end of the post.
Then we went for some night shots after the sun went down.
A lot of people like to shoot in this red telephone booth during the day, but for some reason I love it at night :)
And here is a slightly different take on the Sydney Harbour Bridge type shot :) You know it's there, but its not in your face like a postcard ;)
