We LOVE love. And this, combined with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, seemed like a perfectly valid reason to gather up a little group of fellow love-obsessed biz babes and blokes to create a styled photo shoot that proves there is romance to be found in Maryborough’s eclectic contrasts.

The old saying goes that ‘opposites attract’ and boy, did we roll with this one when it came to our inspiration! Urban and heritage locations? Check! Natural and synthetic textures? Neutral colours against bold metallics and neons? Check, check! Mother nature even turned it on for us with a cold, moody, rainy day which just amplifiedthe warmth and love our real-life newly-engaged couple were radiating.

We hope this shoot hits you right in the feels (or at least gets them tingling), even if love isn’t really your ‘thing’, and we’d like to give all the businesses involved a massive shout-out… thank you! These shoots don’t happen without a team and are completely voluntary, which makes it even more special.

Cheers to LOVE!
