Shana and Pete
Engagement shoots really do hold a special place in my heart. It’s that bliss of having nothing to do with plans, demands and complications – it’s just you, your beloved and the promise you made to spend the rest of your life together. Shana and Pete chose Sydney Harbour as the backdrop for their engagement photographs with Gabriela Colebrook Design & Photography.
Shana and Pete tell the story of how they met, which happened to also be on water! “We met on a boat in Sydney Harbour for a friend’s leaving do. Pete won Shana over later that evening with his karaoke rendition of “Sweet Home Alabama”. ”
On what they love about each other, Shana and Pete remark, “Our mutual love for travel, music, fine wine, good food, family and friends. We both love a good dance off on our friend’s Bondi rooftops or boat parties.”
Pete proposed on a romantic holiday, recalling, “I proposed on a trip to Fiji last September watching the sunset on the most magical beach bure over the water with a glass of sparkling – I handed Shana a love note to read and when she looked up I had taken to one knee with a ring in hand.”
On choosing Sydney Harbour for their engagement photographs, the newly engaged couple explain, “We met in Sydney Harbour and live in the Rocks so we wanted to capture the areas we frequently spend time in. We also wanted to include iconic Sydney sights (Harbour Bridge, Opera House) because both our families live elsewhere and we thought it was important to share beautiful Sydney with them (Pete’s family is in Adelaide, Shana’s is in the States).”
