Alice & Ed

Today’s couple chose a most charming, laid-back approach to their engagement photos, and decided to stick close to home for their session. By close to home I mean, at home and then strolling through the surrounding streets, shops and cafes. We just love the end result of their shoot with Milina Opsenica Photography, who was on hand to capture the loved up, affectionate “on the streets of Fitzroy” engagement.

The couple chose their home in Fitzroy in Melbourne for their super relaxed, lovely engagement shoot. “We wanted to take some time before our wedding to smell the roses and celebrate how lucky we were even in our day to day life,” Alice and Ed explain. They wanted to keep the engagement session “around our home and the places we are most comfortable.”

The two had a pre-Christmas lunch planned with their families. Alice was flustered and in a rush. Ed, as usual, was measured but perhaps a little bit less calm then usual. Ed kept driving Alice to unusual spots to pick things up for the lunch, all further and further away from where they needed to be and closer and closer to St Kilda Beach. As they were driving round the beach, Ed suggested that they take some time to pause and enjoy life. Alice remembers, “I said no, because there was raw chicken in the car and I want to protect the family from salmonella.” Ed said, “I think you want to go to the beach,” and I said “No, I really don’t…” By this stage, Ed was slightly panicked, but determined he decided to set the lead and got out of the car, slammed the door and decisively walked across six lanes of Beaconsfield Parade. Alice settled into the car, determined to wait this one out and protect the family from what was sure to be salmonella poisoning. “I then started checking out Ed’s bum – partly because the jeans I had told him would stretch hadn’t (!), but now I could make out a small, box-shaped package tightly defined through his back pocket… I got out of the car and yelled, “I’M COMING, ED, I’M COMING!!” And the rest is history…”

“While some of the situations we have been in have been hard, most of it has been ridiculously easy… or just beginner’s luck. We have fit with each other from early on, although we have now had the advantage of growing up together. We are both independent souls, and live different lives sometimes, but the other is almost always within arm’s reach to provide support. We are both very instinctive, and our instincts from the early days have been to be together.”
