I was lucky enough to spend a beautiful afternoon with these two lovers at Bells Rapids in the Swan Valley near Perth recently. Trent’s mum was behind it all and had surprised them with a gift voucher for some engagement photos. The original plan was to do the shoot in Broome but the mosquitoes and the rains forced us to reschedule a couple of times! After several big rain events in January, the wet season quickly turned into one of the biggest (and best) on record for many parts of Western Australia’s north. As you probably know the Kimberley is classified as having a tropical climate because it has two seasons – the wet and the dry. The wet season or monsoon season runs from November until April, and is when the area expects to receive the majority of it’s annual rainfall; the dry season runs from May to October and, as the name suggests, no rainfall is expected during this period. Anyway, we soon worked out that we would be in Perth at the same time so we decided to do the shoot down south.
I loved working with Hannah and Trent and Bells Rapids was the perfect location.
