When scouting for interesting locations for engagement sessions, an important factor for me is to find somewhere very secluded, where the couple can feel at ease and not have to worry about on-lookers… Kate and Dan’s engagement session was about as far removed from this ideal as you could get.
In early June, Coolangatta comes alive with style, cars and music from the 50’s and 60’s. Kate and Dan chose to get into the vibe and have their shoot in amongst the spectacular that is ‘Cooly Rocks On’. So 50’s styled Kate, Dapper-Dan and I took to the streets, with thousands of other people and made this series of images.
As chaotic as it was at times, the general vibe was electric and we definitely all had a ball! The old classic cars were the perfect props for the shoot and I’d like to thank the owners who graciously let us use their vehicles. After such a fun day, I really can’t wait for Kate and Dan’s wedding next year… it’s going to be a blast!
