I cannot recommend having an engagement photoshoot before your wedding enough. One, it's practise for the big day and a confidence boost. But it is also an amazing opportunity to document your love for one another, to create a story of your lives just before you start on this brand new journey of marriage. Couple photoshoots aren't even just for people getting married. They are for anyone in a relationship. To celebrate your love, to celebrate your anniversary, just to celebrate you with your furbabies.

I travelled out to Glinks Gully to meet with Olivia & Ele before there wedding and take their engagement photographs on this gorgeous West Coast Beach just out of Dargaville. I love so much about these two but the one thing I absolutely love about these two, is how happy they are. They're just happy to hang out for an evening at the beach being goofballs with each other while some photographer gives them weird prompts. They are just happy together.
