Ash & Patrick // Adelaide Engagement Shoot

19 April 2021
Tennyson Beach, SA

I had such a lovely time with this engagement shoot, Adelaide has the most beautiful beaches and I had two gorgeous subjects – Ash and Patrick.

Ash reached out to me on Instagram last year. She requested a photoshoot to celebrate her engagement with her high-school sweetheart Patrick. Having been together for 10 years, Patrick wanted to go all out and pop the question during a 5-week trip around the US in 2020. He’d planned an epic proposal in New York or Los Angeles! Unfortunately the big C-Word messed up his plans (story of all our lives!!). Instead, Patrick decided to take the humble approach and pop the question at home. Ash has waited a decade for this moment, so of course she said yes, and one year later they’re finally getting to celebrate!

We had a chilled and playful evening, hanging out, watching the sun go down, taking some snaps. Tennyson Beach is a perfect spot in Adelaide for an engagement shoot. Secluded and private, allowing us to relax and have some fun. Now I can’t wait to capture their smiling faces on their wedding day in October!

So why do an engagement shoot?

Engagement shoots are a perfect way to get comfortable with your wedding photographer before your special day. Having your photo taken can feel unnatural, and really it’s all down to how comfortable you feel. All I can say is, trust your photographer, because ultimately it’s their job to bring out the best in you and to showcase the love you share with your partner. The more you let go and forget about the camera, the more natural and authentic your photos will be.
