This has been an incredible journey against all odds and I am so thrilled, privileged and genuinely happy for both Edward and Zahara on finally getting engaged. Since you have both met Zahara and Edward have been on an amazing journey that has finally found themselves engaged and ready to start a life together as a married couple. You are both living proof that love knows no limits.
From the moment you meet Ed it’s not hard to see that he is a genuinely warm, caring, fun loving guy who undeniably dotes on Zahara. And when you meet Zahara within seconds, her humour and wit has you in hysterics. She consumes you with her wit and facial expressions but Zahara is also one of the most thoughtful, kind and generous people I have met always managing to keep it cool, calm and collected. I enjoyed this day so much ironically much the same as the two of you, it was worth going the extra mile even though the current wouldn’t really allow it. Your love has seen you through so many years of tides and I am sure so many people will be and already are inspired by your story. It is so rare to have found love so young in completely different respective cultures and religious backgrounds. I am inspired by your love and its honesty – you make it hard not to enjoy photographing you both.
I am thrilled to be photographing your Wedding story in the weeks to come and I can’t wait to see life’s journey unfold for you two now that you will be Zedward forever.
I hope you enjoy these pre-wedding photographs. This is Part 1 – Loved Up at Studley Park Boathouses in Kew, Melbourne.
