JONATHAN & ALISHA

AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT WITH JESSICA ABBY PHOTOGRAPHY

 

With less then 2 months to go before their wedding in Hawthorn takes place, Alisha and her fiance Jonathan, caught up with Jessica to take part in an engagement shoot to get them in the photographic groove for their big day! Undeniably the talents of Jessica Abby shine through is these beautiful candid images of Alisha and Jonathan, shot at South Wharf, Melbourne.

THE PROPOSAL
He proposed on our 6th year anniversary, we just had dinner and went home and I was ready for bed. He reminded me to brush my teeth before bed and what do you know, a big shiny diamond ring was resting on my toothbrush. I was in so much shock, it took me a while to realise what was happening. He also had planned for me to have the next day off work and he organised a lovely overnight winery tour/stay in the Yarra Valley.

THAT BEAUTIFUL RING
Jonathan designed the ring himself and it was custom made by All Diamonds in Elsternwick. He knows me well and chose the perfect one for me. A beautiful 1.7 ct brilliant cut set in platinum and 4 claws.

WORKING WITH JESSICA ABBY PHOTOGRAPHY
I wanted an engagement shoot / pre-wedding shoot so that we could get use to taking photos and get comfortable with Jessica given we don’t take professional photos often. I wanted to make sure on our wedding day, we had a glimpse of what it would be like.
Jessica was great, she was very reassuring and made us feel completely comfortable. Given how awkward we felt, she was really good at getting us just to do our thing and forget about the camera, as you can see the candid shots really worked for us as opposed to the formal ones.

PLANNING THE WEDDING
We are actually at the end of the wedding plans now. The wedding is in December (only 2 months away now)!  A lot of time and effort has gone into it and I hope it all pays off!
