Lovelies, I hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and having a fabulous weekend somewhere fabulous! We’ll be heading to my folks’ house and hoping for a cake picnic in the garden… but before I go, I wanted to introduce you to gorgeous couple Tawonga and Ed. They got engaged in 2020, and they’re planning their wedding for this summer – but first, they had a pre-wedding photoshoot with our lovely friend Hannah K Photography. I wanted to share this with you because a) it’s super romantic and these two are the absolute sweetest and b) I’m a big advocate of engagement shoots! They’re a chance to spend a little time in your wedding photographer’s company, get used to the camera and capture some special memories of your engagement.
Most of all, right now, engagement photoshoots are a chance to get outside, spend a little quality time together and treat yourselves to a lovely day out – and some fantastic images I promise you will treasure for ever! (They make a lovely gift for your other half as well, by the way…)
Ed, Tawonga – I hope you have a wonderful wedding in July, and I can’t wait to see photos when you’ve said your I dos!
“Ed and I had met in passing a few times before we went on our first ever date. A mutual friend suggested setting us up and while we both agreed to it, we were also a little nervous having no idea how this would go! We had agreed to meet mid-afternoon on a Sunday. Coincidentally, we bumped into each other a few hours before and decided to just bring our date forward. Our first date was a few days after Valentines and we haven’t looked back ever since. We made a lot more effort for our second date!
We got engaged in between lockdowns so our engagement shoot was a special way to mark the occasion. Hannah was recommended to us through friends and so we booked a date with her and hoped for decent weather. On the day we finally had our shoot, we were blessed with a perfect evening of sunshine with hints of autumn just starting to show. The shoot itself (once we eased into it!) was a great and fairly laid back experience. Hannah gave us direction where we needed it and we knew right away that we would book her for our wedding! We got some amazing shots that we will cherish forever.
Given the uncertain times we find ourselves in, our hope is that we’ll get married in July! As we don’t know how things will unfold, we’re simply taking every day as it comes and keeping positive. We dream of an outdoorsy summer wedding with great weather, lots of food and most importantly, that we can have our friends and family there with us.”
