Renny & Matt – Cockatoo Island Engagement

I met Renny & Matt a year ago. I was on the road for work, Skyping them from a musky motel room in the middle of nowhere. Literally. I was in a tiny town in the centre of New South Wales.

What struck me about this couple is the readiness to be open and vulnerable with me, not feeling embarrassed or shy about their relationship. Matt is soft-spoken, Renny is not. Yet their continual giggling and affection for each other was unmissable.

We finally met in person after a year of emails and texts, and I honestly felt like I was seeing old friends after a long time apart. We took a ferry to Cockatoo Island, in the middle of Sydney Harbour. Cockatoo Island is legitimately one of my all-time favourite places in Sydney, and I was eager to show them some of my favourite spots. I have never photographed an engagement shoot here, but it was the most perfect setting for these two love birds.

With just over a month until their wedding, I find myself counting down the days until I get to see them again! No doubt they’re counting down too, but perhaps for a different reason 😉
