Went to Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne for a pre wedding photography shoot with Satnam + Harshi. Their Big Indian wedding is not until December 2015 but they wanted to get in early so they could use some of the images for their ‘Thanks You’ cards. It’s a cute idea as it makes it really personal, and a lovely gift for the recipient.
They want to do the shoot at the location where they had their first date. So we decided to start the shoot from St Kilda Beach as it was the place where they had their first date. And complete the shoot at Royal Botanic Gardens because this was another place they walked through on their first meeting. But because of Melbourne weather on that day we had to cancel St Kilda Beach and go straight to Royal Botanic Gardens.
Harshi decided to dress in western for their first part of the shoot and then change to traditional Punjabi dress.
Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne is great for a pre wedding photography shoot as it has quite a bit of variety. Beautiful trees, the lake and birdlife, the rolling lawns and masses of ivy covering the ground. It’s true it’s quite a busy park, so, you do need to be a little patient at times waiting for others to move out of the frame of the image you’re trying to capture, but it’s worth the wait because it’s such a lovely place.
We’ve chosen a few of our favourite images from their pre wedding photography session.
They appear below. We hope you love our favourites as much as we do.
I would love to thank Satnam & Harshi for providing me the chance to know them. They both are great and make a lovely & beautiful couple. Stay tuned for their wedding photos soon.
