Sweet. Loved up. All the good stuff. This is Kate and Damien with the beautiful little doggies Maggie and Angus at my local beach in Seaford, just last night. Oh, and happy Valentine's Day to all the lovers today!

These two beautiful girls flew in from Singapore for their engagement photo session, which took place in the Dandenong Ranges. I think living where we live, it's common to take for granted the natural beauty that surrounds us here in Melbourne. Photography so often gives me the opportunity to see things around me mindfully, with fresh eyes, as if seeing it for the first time. And it makes me love what I do even more.

Cool salty air rushed past my face, messing my hair and fizzing my skin. The sun was sitting heavy and low. Walking ahead of me, two boys, hand in hand, together for nearly a decade now. 

A small smile on my face. A strange mix of happy and sad at the same time. The knowing that one, two, three, four decades ago this engagement session would not have been possible. 

For their story is mine too. And I was overcome with emotion- for all that has gone before, to get us to where we are today- where two people who love each other can choose to marry.

For every time Daniel and Gaetano had walked in public, hand in hand with an intrinsic sense of 'otherness' and 'difference'.

For all the lovely young LGBTIQA+ couples today, who know this feeling just a little less.

For future generations who, hopefully, will not have to 'come out' at all- because it just isn't a big deal.

Laughter carried on the breeze and the whack of a wave against a million grains of sand grounded me. I looked up. Two people in love were laughing, Daniel was leading Gaetano by the hand, helping him over rocks to just the right vantage point. 

'For all that has gone before', I thought, as I walked, one foot in front of the other towards them. 

 

Daniel and Gaetano's engagement session is also featured over on Groom and Guy. You can see more of their day here. 



Shall we?
Let’s do this together

Super sweet Melbourne couple Daniel and Gaetano met with me early one foggy morning for their lovebirds portrait session. The session took place at Edithvale Wetlands early one foggy morning. These two are super cute together and were a pleasure to photograph.
