With its stunning architecture and grand pillars, Parliament House was the perfect location for Anna and Shaik’s stunning engagement shoot, striking the perfect balance between classic elegance and modern charm.

These two love birds met at a New Year’s Eve party where Shaik worked up the courage to ask for Anna’s number, and as Anna said, “the rest is history”. Fast forward to a very romantic Italian dinner, Shaik had planned their perfect proposal on a Ferris wheel overlooking the sunset at St Kilda Beach, and of course, Anna said yes.

Captured perfectly by JM Photography, this engagement shoot embodies timeless romance with a contemporary twist.

When choosing a feel for their engagement shoot, Anna and Shaik both wanted a classic style, yet one that was modern.

Anna chose to wear a stunning fitted high-neck gown from Meshki and enlisted the help of Q Hair Melbourne to complete her engagement shoot look.

When describing his stunning fiance, Shaik tells us “I love how caring, thoughtful and an AWESOME cook she is!”

Shaik looked dapper in a classic back Calvin Klein suit.

Anna and Shaik chose JM to capture their stunning engagement shoot. “We came across JM’s work and were impressed by his style and artistry.”

When asked what she loves about Shaik, Anna said, “He is the yin to my yang.”
