interracial love

Engagement Session: Mobolaji + Chakriya

It’s funny how when you’re busy making plans, life gets in the way and makes its own. That exactly what happened between these two. Both of them told me that they had no plans for relationships before they met but then in walked Chakriya to a Sunday night church service and Mobolaji was essentially smitten.

From there it their friendship caught fire and turned into something more. They were together more times than not and even though they still remained friends, a deeper love was added into the mix.

I thought it fitting to have their engagement shoot at one of the most iconic places in their relationship: Coogee Beach Cliffs. They have spent many hours walking hand in hand while talking and getting to know each other here. So why not take it back to where it basically began?


Wedding: Thomas + Ruth


I believe that marriage is more than just a bond between two people but a connection made between two families, communities and cultures. Tom and Ruth's beautiful ceremony proved to be just that. To see their love on display for each other was inspiring but to see their love on display for all the ones that came to join in their day was something else.

The weather report called for heavy rain all throughout that Saturday but thankfully the skies cleared up to let the sun shine through and we were blessed with nothing but perfect wedding weather and the most gorgeous light to produce the beautiful images you see before you. 


Tom and Ruth, a warm congratulations goes out to the both of you. I wish you nothing but love and laughter for all your years to come!
