Are you looking for a stunning and unique location for your engagement photoshoot? Look no further than the world-famous Twelve Apostles and the hidden gem of Gibson Steps beach, located along the Great Ocean Road in Melbourne, Australia.
When I first moved to Melbourne, I knew I had to explore the Great Ocean Road and see the Twelve Apostles. It was during one of my adventures that I stumbled upon Gibson Steps beach and knew it was the ideal location for an engagement photoshoot. The Twelve Apostles and Gibson Steps provide the perfect backdrop for a romantic and unforgettable engagement photoshoot. The natural beauty of the area, combined with the serene landscape and unique geological formations of this area, provides endless opportunities for capturing the essence of your love story.
I have had the privilege of working with many couples, including Sophie and Anthony, who met in acting school. Their genuine and unstaged love for each other was evident during the shoot, and their candid moments were truly heartwarming. I even put my camera down at the end of the shoot, but they continued embracing, which is captured in the last quarter of the photoshoot.
When planning your engagement photo shoot at Gibson Steps, it is important to consider the lighting. The beach is best photographed during the golden hour, the hour before sunset, or first thing in the morning, which provides the most beautiful and natural lighting. We got up extremely early to do this shoot at dawn! Incorporating the unique landscape into the shoot is also key. Whether it's the stunning cliffs, the rocky beach or the crystal-clear water, these elements will add a touch of romance and adventure to your photos.
Choosing the right outfits and accessories is also crucial. Opt for clothes that complement the natural surroundings and reflect your personality and interests. Sophie and Anthony wore black and dark colours as a way to contrast against the pale sand and rocks. It's also important to scout the location in advance so you can plan the perfect photoshoot.
During the photoshoot, I will guide you on how to pose and interact with the environment, capture candid moments and incorporate your personalities and interests into the shoot. I will also provide post-shoot guidance on selecting the best photos and editing them for a cohesive look.
Your engagement photo shoot at Gibson Steps and the Twelve Apostles will be a memorable experience that will last a lifetime. The photos will be a beautiful reminder of your love story and can be used for save-the-date cards, your wedding website, and in an album.
