Q: Take a gorgeous, young couple; a funky Sydney suburb; and mix them together on one of the most amazingly sunny Saturdays ever and what do you have?
A: An ultra urban Love Session!
Monika and Ron are getting married in a month's time and I have the honour of being their photographer. A Love Session was included in their wedding package and so it was just a case of fitting it into their busy schedules as medical interns.
We were blessed with a perfect day, and even though you can't theoretically improve on perfect, the day was made even more special as it was also Ron's birthday!
The location was Newtown in Sydney's inner west. Newtown is famous for its urban, alternative culture and abundance of graffiti, but it's also home to the Hogwarts-like University of Sydney where Monika and Ron met as medical students. We started at the university (and even snuck into one of the lecture theatres!) then moved to some amazing spray painted back streets. We eventually finished up in the newly landscaped Sydney Park where the hills provided some incredible fine art opportunities!
We could have kept shooting, but I thought I should let Ron get on and have some well deserved birthday beers!
