I absolutely love sunset sessions at the beach, and Karmen and Nick’s engagement session was certainly no exception. Karmen and Nick are visiting Australia from Hong Kong and wanted some images to celebrate their engagement but also to capture the essence of their new favourite place, Byron Bay. On a day that started out very overcast and grey, I couldn’t believe the gorgeous afternoon we had to work with. Everything fell into place and the result was a fun, casual shoot in one of the most amazing places on the planet.
The guys are due to be married back in Hong Kong later this year. Karmen and Nick, don’t forget if you have trouble finding a wedding photographer back in Hong Kong, I’m only a nine hour flight away : )
Byron Bay holds a very special place in the hearts of Yasemin and Johan Mårtensson. Although they are both from Sweden, it was Byron Bay where they first met fourteen years ago. The couple have been holidaying here for the past couple of months with their children and wanted to preserve the memories with a photo session on the beach. Below are just a few of the images from their session.
Lately I have been wearing shorts to beach sessions as I usually end up getting in the water up to my knees to grab particular shots. On this occasion however, I had just come from a commercial shoot and was decked out in full business attire. Initially I rolled up my pants as I paddled around but as soon as the first wave hit me, I just gave up and went all the way in up to my shoulders. I think it was well worth the effort though. The water was beautiful and I think we grabbed a few great shots as a result!
