When Penny and Luke told me they wanted to do their engagement shoot at sunrise on an incredible beach in Newcastle I almost collapsed from happiness.
We arrived in the carpark of Dudley Beach on a particularly warm spring morning with the first touches of light. As we crept down the wooden steps to the sand, Penny and Luke kicked off their thongs, grabbed each other’s hands and playfully ran down to the water.
We wandered along the water’s edge and they danced and joked as the sun reached over the horizon. They didn’t notice the water lapping at their ankles as they dug their toes into the sand. It was a perfectly romantic morning and I was an awkward third wheeler, as usual.
Can’t wait for their wedding down in Robertson next year!
