Coolangatta engagement shoot

Josh and Susannah – Coolangatta engagement shoot

Josh and Susannah are due to be married in Toowomba, in the Darling Downs region of Queensland, early next year. We met up in Coolangatta, at the Southern end of The Gold Coast, to shoot their engagement session. For their Coolangatta engagement shoot we explored around Froggies beach before taking in the sunset at Greenmount.

Even after all these year’s as a professional photographer there is still a part of me that gets slightly nervous when the person your there to shoot turns up with a camera. Well Josh, turned up with not one but two cameras, tripod and backpack. Turns out he’s a super keen film photographer and brought along two camera’s one armed with black and white film another with colour slide. He put me and my digital equipment to shame. Anyway I shouldn’t have been nervous as it was great to work with someone who loves photography as much as I do. Plus we explored the idea of shooting some of their wedding day on film as well, which I find really exciting. I also borrowed his tripod and they seriously indulged me in allowing me to play around with long exposure and some off camera flash, whilst they got soaked by the waves. They were great sports, and I can’t wait for next year to come around so I can photography their wedding. Here’s a selection of my favourites from the shoot.
