It was somewhat under duress that Rachel and Patrick met. Their parents both dragged them to a community gathering at their church, at the tender age of 11. Needless to say, they’re both glad, they went! The pair became engaged in December after being together for many moons, over a romantic picnic in Perth’s Sir James Mitchell park.

Their engagement session took the country to the city, with two different backdrops, golden light and the talent of Manis Moments. It’s got everything one could need for a sunny Saturday with their love. Scroll on for the story of Rachel and Patrick!

On what they love about one another, the pair share “Patrick is warm, always putting me first and just plain amazing!” And from Patrick? “Rachel is gentle, caring and expresses unconditional love.”

Rachel and Patrick wandered the streets of Fremantle for their engagement session, before heading to Wanerroo Pines for golden hour. The vendor deserving of all their rave reviews? Their chosen photographer. “Naz is so amazing!!” raves Rachel. “We saw his work and loved it! It was very easy to choose. Naz made us feel at ease and comfortable, is super chill and fun while capturing the best moments! ”
