It was a beautiful summer evening when we did Melita and Brett’s engagement shoot at Kings Park. It was just a few days before Christmas. We had a good run with the weather for this particular shoot. First of all, it was before the Perth typical summer heat wave really hit, and secondly, the on-off rain on that day cleared just as we began the shoot in the late afternoon.
We talk a lot about the weather here, but it’s a pivotal element which defines how each photographer shoots on the day. On this particular day, the diffused, post-rain evening glow allowed us to produce images like this:
That, and how game our couple was. Melita was a natural in front of the camera, with Brett happily playing along in front of the camera 😉
Brett proposed to Melita at Kings Park, so it was a natural choice for this shoot.
We asked Brett to recreate the proposal at the same spot where it occurred. We also learnt that Brett did not kneel down and propose formally, so we had him do it again in front of the camera:
… and Melita made sure to examine the ring properly, this time around!
Flipping a coin into the wishing well:
Ahhh the romance between them is so very evident.
