Can you believe this place is only a five minute drive from Parramatta’s CBD?! It is an absolutely magical spot and is quite hidden. Having portraits at Lake Parramatta is the most wonderful experience.
We spent last Sunday morning enjoying the peace and quiet while watching the sun rise above the trees at Lake Parramatta. No one was around until we were leaving about an hour later. We listened to the birds sing and we explored the bush tracks, sat on the rocks and enjoyed the view. We also sat in the long grass! Engagement Portraits are a great way to do things that you might not be able or game to on your wedding day. So perhaps climbing a fence, sitting on rocks that are hanging over water or walking in the bush may not be possible on your wedding day but for your engagement portraits, it is much more possible! I encourage my clients to do what makes them feel comfortable and it is usually them who may be suggesting to do something crazy!
Anything goes for an engagement portrait session, so open your mind and think about the possibilities – it can be fun, romantic, quirky or serious. Whatever you want and whatever suits you both is my focus! The location does not need to be a parkland or beach, it can be your favourite cafe, the spot where the proposal took place or just your favourite place to visit. I have photographed engagement sessions in Melbourne and Sydney alleyways, in a country field with a vintage bike, on a rowboat and on the family farm.
This was such a perfect spot for Shona and Rich to celebrate their engagement as it is a spot they love to visit and is close to their home! They also enjoyed seeing it at this peaceful time of the day. If you are curious about what Lake Parramatta is like, you can find more information here.
