What a fabulous afternoon in The Rocks, Sydney with Toby and Lesley taking photos to celebrate their recent engagement. The weather forecast wasn’t promising, but Sydney turned on a gorgeous blue sky for a perfect late autumn afternoon. I’m always amazed that no matter how busy it is down at The Rocks, and it gets really busy on the weekends, it is always possible to find a quiet corner away from the crowds – perfect to get rid of those initial nerves of being “couply” in front of a camera.
I’ve known Toby for a while and met his fiancée a few times over the years so it was lovely to spend some time with them and hear about their wedding plans and stories about how the met, first dates and, of course, the proposal. After an initial slightly nervous start, they quickly relaxed and got into the swing of things.
After some quiet spaces in The Rocks, we made our way to the harbour and around Dawes Point before heading up to Observatory Hill. We caught the final bits of sunlight and finished off with a perfect silhouette under a tree – I’ve always wanted to do this photo at this location and it turned out just as I hoped, well worth laying down in some dirt to get! Congratulations again to you both and wishing you all the best for your wedding next year!
