If you are a frequent reader of our blog you may be aware that we have been running a competition this month giving away 4 free portrait photo sessions. The first shoot to take place was Kailee & Liam’s Couple Shoot at AQWA at Hillarys Boat Harbour in Sorrento. Charlotte and I had an absolute ball doing this photo shoot for them… You see they have a similar situation to Charlotte and I… Like Charlotte, Kailee is of Canadian origin and Liam’s an Aussie like myself. In fact, it’s crazy what a small world it is…. Kailee’s sister is a talented photographer in Canada where we spend half our year!
We kicked of the shoot by heading over to AQWA, which is right across from our Perth studio. We made a bee-line for the jelly fish to create some really romantic backlit portraits of them against the jellies. Looks awesome eh!?
Next we all wandered downstairs to the tunnel that goes under the shark tank!! It’s a pretty amazing feeling to have sharks, sting rays and various other reef fish swimming within feet of you!
You can see how close the stingray is as it swam overhead! Amazing eh!?
Kailee and Liam aren’t engaged (yet!), but we’ve got our fingers crossed that when they decide to get married they’ll have us do their wedding photography! And hopefully at AQWA!!
What a damn sexy couple these guys make.
In the Danger Zone area of AQWA we got to see some incredibly colourful marine life… sea horses, angel fish, occies and lots more.
Notice the stormy conditions on the ocean in the photo above… This is one of the reasons we chose AQWA for the shoot… nothing better than avoiding the wind and rain!
The next photo has to be one of the best photos of the whole shoot… I love how the 3 sharks are all soaring above them. So cool.
Charlotte’s always coming up with really creative and interesting poses and photo ideas.. I love how ethereal and soft this photograph of their reflection in the tank turned out. Gorgeous.
After the photo shoot we headed back to our house as the beach shoot we had planned was rained out! You may remember the seriously intense storms that blew in about 10 days ago? Well this was that day!
Sitting on our couch they looked like models. The light was just perfect for creating some relaxed, natural light portraits.
I know I’ve said it before, but Liam & Kailee make a damn sexy couple right?!
Some of my favourite photos from the day are these next two… they just look so happy together!
Before wrapping up the shoot we stepped out onto our balcony and let the wind redo Kailee’s hair for her! I love gritty black and white portraits.
That’s it for now… Look forward to sharing some of the photos from the wedding we photographed this past weekend at Wise Winery in Dunsborough.
