The only way I can describe this couple session is crazy, kookie and cool. Joanna & Chris are currently based in Brisbane and while holidaying in Melbourne wanted to have a couple photography session as a fun and lively way to capture their relationship and remember their time in Melbourne – one of their favourite cities.
Chris and Jo share a relationship that is supportive, playful, and occasionally very competitive. They complement each other perfectly, and always aim to do things with style. This was made obvious in their shoot where the aim was to have a fun session that captures both of their personalities as well as the style and character of Melbourne with a bit of improvisation and theatricals mixed in.
Theses two met through improvised theatre, and somewhere between walks around the neighbourhood and performing scenes, a relationship evolved. Jo says it’s been super easy as they never fight and she counts herself lucky that she has someone who is so accepting, makes her laugh and who’s thoughts continue to intrigue her.
Our shoot took place in and around the city on what turned out to be a lovely Melbourne morning. We started out at the Melbourne GPO, headed to Melbourne’s iconic graffeti art Hoiser Lane, then onto Federation Square and down to the riverside. What resulted is a beautiful set of photographic memories that captures these two completely being themselves, having fun and being in love.
