As part of their wedding photography package, Kerry and Kevin decided to take advantage of my affordable engagement shoot option where I take photos of an engaged couple, and often their children before their wedding, in order to use the photographs at their wedding on a projector, or printed about as decoration, or on their wedding invites. This particular engagement shoot took place in a park known as Mitcham Reserve, near Scotch and Mercedes college, and nearby the wonderful wedding venue of Carrick Hill.
Kerry and Kevin’s Engagement shoot in Mitcham reserve was shared with their 4 children which enjoyed running amok while we were shooting. They made use of their dancing lessons they had been taking together to take some studding posed shots in the overhanging green foliage of the reserve’s trees. Their wedding, which I am lucky enough to also be shooting as their wedding photographer is in September, and they wanted a few shots to use on their wedding invite.
While we were taking the romantic, typical engagement photos we also took advantage of the fact that the whole family were there together and took some family portraits of the children also. As if often the case, the children were less than helpful when standing together, but were quite keen on showing their natural smiles when getting dirty playing about in the dirt, climbing trees, or picking flowers.
The reserve was the original centre of colonial life in the old Mitcham Village. The reserve boasts a modern set of play equipment, multiple public BBQs and a marvellous gazebo open to the public to use. During the winter, Brownhill Creek runs through the reserve down through a wonderful canopy of oak trees where most of my favourite images from this engagement shoot took place.
