Engaged: Melissa and Ben in Doonan

14th August 2014

This handsome couple from Sydney came up to the Sunshine Coast to meet their wedding photographer, Alan Hughes Photography, and a holy gorgeous engagement photo shoot ensued. While they plan to marry in Yandina, their engagement session was held in Doonan, which, for those playing at home, is basically the country/inland part of Noosa.  Having the shoot before their wedding was all about discovering how Alan works in a way to make his subjects relax, enjoy and end up with beautiful pics to boot. I’d say mission accomplished.

Engaged in the Bush

3rd July 2013

Kylie and Darren commissioned their wedding photographer, Sunshine Coast fave, Alan Hughes Photography, to take some pre-wedding photos that reflected their personalities. Being country people through and through, it made perfect sense to have an engagement photo session out in the bush, where they would feel right at home.  This pair were more than happy trekking through long grass, sometimes way above their heads! Darren is in Land Management and Kylie is a Nutritionist, so they are at one with nature – not so much for our Alan, who was quite pleased the country folk were there to forge the…
