Fiona and Dyan

You guys know how much I love, love love rainy day shoots! Well Lizzy C sent over this fantastic wet shoot recently and I couldn’t wait to share it with you- sunny skies don’t always make for perfect photos and black skies? Well I think they can often make for even better ones Such is the engagement shoot of Fiona and Dylan!

Lizzy (who traveled from Melbourne for this shoot!) says, “Last week, I went up to the sunny state, which, funnily enough, wasn’t sunny!  Despite the unrelenting rain and flood warnings, Fiona and Dylan didn’t shy away from our scheduled portrait session.  When I talked to Fiona on the phone (peering out the window at the drizzly conditions outside), her response was “not a problem, we’ll just grab a couple of umbrellas”. So we did! We danced in the rain!

Toowoomba is on the top of the Great Dividing Range, just inland from Brisbane, and often has days when fog engulfs the town—even right in the middle of the day. It’s absolutely beautiful when you head out of town and you can be surrounded by the beautiful Australian bush, which is just visible through the heavy fog.

Fiona and Dylan, as you can plainly tell, are an energetic and fun-loving couple who are up for anything and everything. They are planning a beautiful vintage-inspired wedding at a historic chapel and manor on the outskirts of Toowoomba, which has spectacular views over the Lockyer Valley. They’ve thought very carefully about personalising the wedding and making sure everyone is included. ”
