Leigh & Craig’s Sweet Sydney Engagement

Leigh & Craig

We love an engagement session and when this sweet Sydney engagement from Sonja C Photography landed on our desks, the charm made it one we knew we couldn’t wait to share with you. How could an engagement shoot with tutu skirts, crashing waves and puppy dogs to complement a very much in love couple be anything than the perfect way to spend a Saturday?

Leigh and Craig met in San Francisco, the bride to be be noting “I moved to San Francisco in 2013 and met Craig shortly after. We were both working for the same company and although our first date was really a work meeting, we both knew there was an immediate connection. I left that meeting smiling, hoping to see more of the cute guy in the pink shirt. During the next few months, we ran into each other around the city and chatted from time to time. We finally went on our first real date and a year later moved to Sydney together.”

Leigh and Craig took their engagement photos in the best of the urban landscape and the best of the beach – Paddington and Maroubra. Noting “We wanted the shoot to be fun and relaxed, while still capturing the emotion and the beautiful coastline of Sydney.”

Leigh tells of their engagement. “Craig proposed last Christmas while we were visiting the US and it was absolutely wonderful. We loved getting to share the news with family in-person.”

On what they love about one another, Leigh remarks “Relocating across the world, navigating a new country, and exploring this amazing city has brought us closer in our relationship. We are both very supportive of each other and encourage one another to pursue the things we are passionate about.”
