St Kilda Love Bird Photography - Gemma & Michael

Gemma and Michael come all the way from Co. Roscommon, Ireland. They are together 7 years. They met in Dublin where Michael was working as a civil engineer and Gemma was in college.

After Gemma finished up her degree they decided to hit the road and do a bit of travelling.
They traveled down through SE Asia, landing in Melbourne in March 2010 and have never looked back! The 1-year adventure turned into a long-term stay as they fell in love with Melbourne and all the opportunities Australia has to offer. They've managed to travel around quite a bit over the last 5 years seeing lots of oz and even living in Perth for a few months.

They live in the cutest apartment in St. Kilda, in awesome location right across from Albert park, the beach and most importantly the 5th province!!

Michael is a man's man loves sport, the outdoors, he's really into fitness. Gemma is a woman after my own heart, loves floristry, animals, cooking to name but a few. They contacted me a couple of weeks ago to document their relationship (no they're not engaged). We met up on a cold (by Melbourne standards) day and got on like a house on fire.

We started our shoot in St Vincent Garden in St Kilda. The trees were so colourful, just what we had in mind.

Gemma has the dirtiest, most infectious laugh.

Our second location was Albert Park Yachting and Angling Club for photos, we were so lucky that the pier was pretty much deserted when we got there.

Gemma and Michael are so fun loving and laid back, they made the shoot so easy.

Finally we went under the pier and along the beach along Beaconsfield Parade.

Gemma's favourite colour is green, lucky or what that this cute little hut had a green trim?
