Quick Tip: The Faux Glow, Perfected


Even if you consider yourself to be a self-tanning aficionado, doing a trial run at least a week in advance of your Big Day is an absolute must. Before the main event, make sure your entire body has been thoroughly exfoliated, and that any necessary hair removal has taken place at least 12 hours prior, before applying self-tanner, and you’re practically guaranteed a gorgeous, even glow!

Darwin Northern Territory Engagement Session by Mel Silva

You know what I can’t wait to see?  This darling duo’s wedding.  Because if their Big Day is even half as adorable as their engagement session happens to be, it’s going to be one epic dose of pretty.  Think smiles for miles, fun-filled frolicking and a whole lot of all caps HAPPY.  And the beautiful imagery captured by Mel Silva Photography?  Amazing.  See it all in the full gallery.


From Mel Silva PhotographyThe first two years of Nomikos & Despina’s relationship was tested by distance while Nomikos was studying in Queensland on the Gold Coast. Eventually Despina moved to the Gold Coast to study alongside him. After they both moved back to Darwin, Nomikos popped the question at sunrise on a bridge overlooking the ocean with a gorgeous Tiffany ring, which made the early morning wake up call of 5:30 am all worth it. Nomikos and Despina will be married in July this year and I can’t wait to photograph there rustic styled wedding!
