Blue Mountains Engagement Session with Tenille + Royce

The start of each wedding season has found me fall into a unplanned pattern of leaving the Sunshine Coast, Queensland for weddings and heading to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains for a 3-4 day session of prepping for the wedding season ahead in a cute Airbnb, drinking hot mulled wine and catching up with couples who will brave the icy temperatures outside for some epic photo sessions.

Tenille + Royce were happy to come up one afternoon whilst in the Blue Mountains recently and partake in running around together to keep warm in front of my new Canon 5dMkIv. Now, I don’t know if it was simply because I used this camera for the first time (and the sensor was SUPER clean) but I honestly was blown away with the detail and image improvements. This shoot rocked! Was it the colours of spring trying to pop out on a cold winter like day? Tenille and Royce just taking all the direction and being 110% in trusting me? Or maybe the fact that it was blowing a gale and we were keen to get as many epic shots as possible in a very short period of time to retreat back to the pub for some more mulled wine? I don’t know – but I’m super happy we were all there and I’m stoked to have photographed their wedding this September at Montrose Berry Farm in the Southern Highlands. Be sure to check that out on the blog soon!
