An Autumn engagement photo session  in the countryside around Maleny in the Sunshine Coast hinterland


Kate & Peter’s engagement session was a bit of a fun adventure. They actually live walking distance from me and as our destination for their engagement shoot was Maleny, in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, we drove up together. It was a great chance to get to know these two better before we got stuck into the photography.

Im a bit in love with their couples photography session. Autumn is a great time to be out photographing; the weather is cooler, the light is pretty and the colours in nature are changing.

We headed up the Bruce Highway and turned off to Maleny at Steve Irwin Way, were we hit our first location, a pretty woodlands forest.

We then jumped back in the car and headed to Maleny to this little quiet spot I love because of the country feel and dirt road.

We then moved on to the popular photo location that has affectionately become known as One Tree Hill in Maleny, to continue the shoot as we waited to capture the sunset over the rolling green hills and Glass House Mountains in the distance.

In photography we talk about shooting in the best light, well we had arrived a bit early to this spot so it was still quite bright and sunny. Well I love a challenge and being a wedding photographer, you don’t always have the most ideal lighting, so you learn to work with what you are given. In these situations backlighting is the go-to lighting choice. I love the way the sun lights these two lovebirds blonde hair from behind, it adds like a magical glow.
