It’s an amazing opportunity I have, to document love stories.
Emma and Auki’s love story is just beautiful, they’ve been together for years but still the love and affection they show to each other is like they were still in high school. I’ve always felt my purpose as a photographer was to capture the connection between the couple instead of the connection with the camera, and I have always strived to get this. Recently as part of my ongoing learning and striving to give my subjects or muses the very best I can, I spent the day with a revolutionary photographer Jesh de Rox, the brain child behind “Beloved”. Beloved is a revolutionary technique that combines portraiture and photojournalism together to evoke natural and beautiful expression between a couples while being photographed.
Back to Emma and Auki and their engagement shoot at the Brisbane botanical gardens, Auki had planned to propose to Emma at Augastines on George, a favourite restaurant of theirs, that is until he overheard Emma talking to one of her girlfriends about “ if he proposes in public I would definitely die”. The engagement photography session was spent capturing that connection and the chemistry the two shared, talking about the past and their future plans together among other things. I hope you enjoy Emma and Auki’s engagement shoot at the Brisbane Botanical gardens as much as I did documenting their love story. If you would like for me to document your engagement, I'd love to hear from you. Please feel free to head over and like my facebook business page too. It gives me warm and fuzzies everytime someone likes my work :)
