Emily & Peter
We love when engagement photos show off the best of a city’s sights, and when Hannah Photography spent the day with today’s lovebirds Emily and Peter, a stroll around Perth’s favourite and most picturesque spots was in order. The beautiful West Australian sunsets, colourful painted walls, parks and urban streets all setting the scene to capture this momentous occasion.
After meeting at Emily’s sister’s birthday party, and a few false starts, the pair finally decided they were meant to be, Peter, popping the question beside a bonfire. Emily fills us in. “Peter told me we were going down to Scenic Rim to try out some new camera gear for the weekend. He had originally planned to propose by the water at sunset but after dinner, there was a bonfire set up under the stars and it was the perfect moment. So he put the camera on a timer, told me to pose by the bonfire, ran over and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes and almost set myself on fire jumping up and down in excitement.”
It’s Peter’s love of a challenge that drives Emily’s love for him. “I love that Peter will dive head-first into any challenge without reserve and encourage me to better myself always. He is spontaneous, hilarious and sometimes a little too much fun but always has the best intentions.”
On what he loves about his future wife, Peter shares “I love that Emily has a big heart and is always kind and considerate to everyone. She also makes excellent dumplings and irons all my clothes, which is a plus.”
