La Perouse Engagement Session: Maria & Talib

We’d like to introduce you all to another one of our wonderful 2013 couples: Maria and Talib! It’s safe to say that Jeff and I have been wonderfully spoilt this year with a fantastically diverse set of weddings to photograph. You all haven’t seen the half of it yet as our computers are brimming full of beautiful photos currently in our in-progress folders! We’ve photographed destination weddings in four cities and two countries, weddings with more than 300 people and a wedding with only two. We’ve had Christian, Hindu, Muslim, and non-religious ceremonies. We certainly haven’t been bored this year! When we met this kind-hearted couple early in 2013, we were even more excited about our upcoming weddings. Maria and Talib’s families are from Iran and Pakistan, and they were planning an elaborate multi-cultural two-day celebration for 300 of their family members and friends. We recently photographed Maria and Talib’s wedding and it was AMAZING. We can’t wait to share the images from their special day, but for now, let us share with you some images from their engagement session in La Perouse.

Are they a good-looking couple or what? Maria and Talib met at a mutual friend’s birthday party, instantly hit it off, and have been together ever since!

Aside from being really ridiculously good-looking, Maria and Talib have a great sense of humor. They don’t take themselves too seriously and seem so comfortable with one another. They really seem like a perfect match!

Like many of our other 2013 couples, Maria and Talib love to travel. It was on a big trip to Europe that Talib proposed to Maria at the Trevi fountain in Rome… at midnight! Maria said she became so emotional that she balled her eyes out for 15 minutes before she could finally find the strength to say “Yes!”

It had been quite awhile since Jeff and I had photographed down in La Perouse, so it was really fun exploring some new hidden spots around the area, like this picturesque path.

Maria brought along several beautiful dresses for the session, including this super cute, colourful sundress. It was just perfect for the summery day!


Aww, I love this one!

The last spot on our La Perouse tour was Bare Island, for some sunset shots, of course! How pretty did Maria’s dress look in the golden light?
