I recently spent a gorgeous sunday afternoon with Caitlin & Bren in the stunning little town of Maleny, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. We were blessed with the most amazing weather considering mother nature has given us so much rain lately but we had the weather gods on our side. Clear blue skies with not much cloud in the sky and a picture perfect sunset to top it all off.
One Tree Hill, Maleny is by far one of my favourite locations to photograph. The lush green grass, jaw-dropping views of the Glasshouse Mountains, fresh country air and spectacular sunsets. Maleny has so many hidden little gems for photoshoots and I am trying to find as many as I can.
Bren and Caitlin were a little nervous about the Engagement Shoot at the beginning because it’s not something they’ve done before. You’d be surprised how many of my couples say this to me at the start of every shoot! That’s ok, I don’t need you to be a professional model! You’re there to have fun, spend some quality time with each other, enjoy all the kisses & cuddles and most of all…laugh! Engagement Shoots are all about celebrating your love and just let me capture all the beautiful moments during the session.
Now I have to admit, I’ve known Bren & Caitlin for a while now and have photographed Bren before during his time playing for the Banyo Devils Rugby League Club but since they’re getting married later this year he’s decided to take the year off from footy just in case he was injured or scored a black eye. Mind you, Bren does tend to score some kind of injury almost as often as he scores tries lol. On the footy field though, I swear he knows where I am with my camera and “conveniently” pops his butt out directly facing the camera when he’s having a little breather haha. (I seriously have lost count how many “butt shots” I have of Bren on the footy field haha)
All jokes aside though, we had a great afternoon and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.
