Angelica Peady {Wollongong Photographer} Melodie & Kurt in love in Thirroul

Just a week or so ago we found ourselves heading South to the gorgeous beach side suburb of Thirroul. We were en route to meet the fabulous duo that is Melodie and Kurt for their engagement session. During the drive we were excited and hopeful that we’d meet a fun, relaxed pair who’d let their hair down in front of the camera. And we weren’t to be disappointed – just as these cool, contemporary images will show you.

As part of the Angelica Peady approach to weddings, we like to schedule engagement shoots with our couples. This allows us to spend time with you, get to know you, for us all to feel comfortable with one another and to allow the couple to loosen up in front of the camera and understand the photographic experience before their ‘big day’.

Melodie and Kurt invited us into their home and we were immediately taken by Melodie’s flair for detail and her many crafty projects in the house. Of course, loving all things quirky and retro we straight away knew we wanted to include these into the shoot – they’d add personal detail of Melodie and Kurt’s lives together to the imagery – and make for some pops of vivid colour and interesting, fresh pictures.

So, here they are! The gorgeous, the loved-up, the uber-cool…Melodie and Kurt. You’ll see more of these two when we shoot their wedding in the Southern Highlands later this year. Until then guys, happy planning…

You don’t have to be getting married (or you could already be married!) to book an engagement shoot, all you need is love!

Having this kind of session is a great shared experience, it’s fun and captures you and your partner being together, being yourselves and enjoying one another. And who wouldn’t want beautiful, pictures like these to treasure as ‘moment in time’ marking your anniversary, your engagement or just that you can’t get enough of that special someone?

So, for your own love sessions / couple’s shoot / engagement session – whatever you want to call it and for whatever reason you want to do it – contact Angelica Peady Photography.
