Rachael and Michael’s Adelaide Engagement Photos

by | Bride, Engagements


Rachael & Michael

This sweet as can be engagement shoot by photographer Carla Micucci took place in Adelaide’s Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens. I do love the festive, sweet details that add a sense of fun and occasion to the wintery, beautiful backdrop.

Carla says “Rachael and Michael are due to wed in March 2013. When I first met them, I just knew I had to be their wedding photographer. They are both such kind hearted and warm people who just happen to be insanely cute and have so much love for each other. High school sweethearts, these two have been together for 12 years and share an amazing bond.”

“For their engagement session we ventured to the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens in the middle of winter to produce a beautiful and romantic setting to capture this special time in their lives.”

“Sam from Fabulous Functions made up a stunning vibrant bouquet of blooms to bring out the warmth of the gorgeous vintage meets modern setting that Kirstin from The Bowerbird Room produced. Nell from Bella by Nella Makeup Artistry perfected Rachael’s look by giving her a natural yet classic look. ”
