The Dobbs Family photo shoot in Parramatta | Michael & Zara’s wedding day | 22 October, 2019
The Dobbs family photography shoot in Parramatta was a little bit family shoot, a little bit wedding shoot, and a whole lot of fun!
Zara and Michael were excitedly preparing for their intimate wedding when Zara was the lucky winner of a portrait voucher at the studio. When I spoke with her, she was interested in a family shoot and explained that she was getting married and that her whole family would be dressed beautifully and did I think that I could do a family session in between her service and the party to help them create some special memories of the day.
Of course I could!
Closer to their special day and after researching Parramatta, we decided on a pretty little spot within Parramatta Park, called The Dairy. This location has everything – a vegie garden, a flower garden, nice trees (including Jacarandas that weren’t in flower at the time), gorgeous heritage buildings complete with stone paths and textured walls, and more.
The morning of the wedding was looking a little wet. There was promise of rain and while it sprinkled a little in the half an hour before we were due to meet for the shoot, and the Dobbs family were prepared with brollies, we were blessed with a dry hour and heaven’s own softbox made shooting in the middle of the day a pleasure.
Zara and Michael have two boys, Theo and Callum, who were full of excitement and energy. They had a ball exploring the scene and brought so much personality and fun to the day.
Zara and Michael have a lovely gallery of images of their children, themselves and the whole family to treasure and remember this special day.
Thank you so much, Zara and Michael, for trusting me to create some beautiful portraits for your family on such a day. May your journey continue to be filled with laughter and happiness.
