Frances & Jason are a fun loving, down to earth couple who are deeply in love. Tomorrow marks the day they will commit their lives to one another in front of their friends and family. Weddings are a wonderful thing.
In planning their pre-wedding photo shoot (or engagement shoot as I like to call them), we discussed finding a location where they’d feel the most comfortable and relaxed together and we chose the very beautiful Bells Rapids in the Swan Valley. When they tie the knot tomorrow they will do so only minutes from this location at the ever stunning Caversham House.

When it comes to choosing a great engagement photography location in Perth, you really can’t overlook the Swan Valley… absolutely stunning natural scenery and a relatively short drive from the city I love it every time.
I loved Frances’ idea of bringing brightly coloured balloons as a prop! Definitely made for some fun pictures.
I think the next two portraits tell you all you need to about their sense of humour!!!
Check out Frances’ engagement ring!!! Talk about timeless. So stunning. And what a gorgeous couple to match!
I absolutely adore these next two photos… What a beautiful tenderness they obviously share.
After a fun 20 minutes or so capturing all the shots above, they threw on some more comfy clothes and we headed off on the second half of their adventure.
While chatting about their engagement story Jason thought it’d be fun to reenact his proposal and as you can see, Frances’ response was as powerful as the first time around!
The light in the mid afternoon is just incredible this time of year… don’t you love the way the light pours through these she oaks?
I could sense just how close Jason & Frances were feeling at this time and invited them to close their eyes and imagine they were sitting in this same spot in 25 years and to imagine all the amazing experiences they would have shared – and how much their love will have grown. When they opened their eyes you can see that the love in their eyes tells that wonderful story.
Any fans of The Office out there? I am and with very little encouragement these guys loved the chance to plank a little! Haha.
The Bells Rapids bridge is such a stunning sight after the sun falls behind the hills… check out the incredible colours in this next pic.
After some more casual portraits we headed down to the river and Jason & Frances climbed into the lovely clear water together. With virtually no direction they made the most of this very romantic (and sexy) opportunity to express their love for one another. I particularly loved this set of photographs.
I’ll leave this post for now and look forward to sharing more photos soon. Dave.
