Lena & Jake’s Engagement shoot in Fremantle


 

I only recently realised I blogged this beautiful couple’s wedding, but forgot all about how gorgeous their Fremantle engagement shoot was! So here it is to enjoy!

We had a fab time catching up and chatting all about their upcoming wedding, and then I happened to run into some friends of mine with their new puppy, so we decided to include the little cutie into their photo shoot. It was the best and totally unexpected!

I absolutely LOVE engagement shoots, as it gives couples another opportunity to celebrate their engagement period (just in case you needed more reason to celebrate!). We also get to create new memories with the added bonus of capturing some really beautiful, relaxed and fun photos without the timeline, location and seasonal restrictions of a wedding day. Theyโ€™re also a fabulous way to include your fur kids as part of the shoot (or borrow one in this case ๐Ÿ˜‰), which often isnโ€™t possible on your wedding day.

Leave a comment and don’t forget to share if you loved this shoot. You can check out their equally amazing wedding here

Natalia & Karim – Coptic Orthodox Wedding in Perth & Frasers State Reception Centre


There’s not a lot of venues in Perth I haven’t been to in my 20 year career as a Perth Wedding Photographer. So when I found out Natalia & Karim were getting married in a church I’d never been to before, I was extra excited, but also curious as to what could possibly make up the 90 minute ceremony! It was definitely different to the many other Orthodox ceremonies I’ve photographed, but I adored the part of the service where the couple’s heads are touching. The symbolism was beautiful.

Ceremony formalities aside, the entire wedding party was full of energy and excitement, and I think it’s safe to say Karim was grinning from ear to ear all day, and completely smitten with Natalia. The vibe of the reception was phenomenal with live music, fireworks and plenty of celebrations. I would happily shoot weddings like these every weekend!

Congratulations Natalia & Karim, and thank you so much for letting me come along for the ride. Erica xx
