On a brisk mid-autumn afternoon, I set out to the Dandenongs in Victoria to photograph the lovely Annette and David for their engagement pre-wedding photoshoot. 

It was relatively cold, but not worthy of shivering, and there was a risk of rain which never made an appearance! Upon arrival at Cloudehill Nursery and Gardens, which is just over an hour's drive south east of Melbourne, we noticed it was pretty quiet. Seemed like not many people were keen to brave the potential rain, so we mostly had the gardens to ourselves! 

There are so many good spots to find, just about everywhere you look is a great photo spot. We took our time and wandered about, soaking up the beautiful soft light the cloud cover provided and the way it made the autumn colours just pop. 

Afterwards, we warmed up in Cloudehill's lovely cafe with some coffee and cake! Was an enjoyable afternoon and I had a great time photographing their engagement.
