You know those couple you see walking down the street together just on their way for their weekly coffee date strolling hand in hand, giggles all around and eyes only for each other? You know the kind that are so obviously in love with each other that every eyeball passing them can see it?
Well my friends.. This is one of those couples!
Together around nine months, Kiera and Dave are happy, in love and ready to start the next chapter of their lives together. This right here is their engagement session.
This sassy couple gave me chills! Literal chills! We started our session at Newcastle Ocean Baths up on the steps. You know the ones.. The blue steps! Kiera and Dave sat there together and instantly positioned themselves in a cuddley, intimate snuggle. And me? Well I was the third wheel walking around them with a Canon 5D Mark IV snapping the sweetness up whilst also asking all sorts of questions to get to know this beautiful couple. Sometimes I speak before I think and blurt out really personal or inappropriate questions.. Lucky for me all my clients are care-free and totally don't mind!!
After laughing at common public watching them cuddle, kiss and sweet talk each other up on the big blue steps whilst I tripped, skipped and stumbled all around them capturing their story, we moved onto the rocky areas with waves crashing hopelessly against the rocks. As I take a bunch of cute AF pictures I start to giggle to myself.. "Have you guys seen the video of the lady posing on a rocky area like this and the waves come crashing over and sweep the poor lady away?" I scream to the couple. This video if you know what I'm talking about is by far the funniest yet most relatable thing I've seen go viral! The lengths we go for some images!!
The Dirty Dancers..... Boy oh boy was this the best thing I've witnessed in a session! This couple was up for anything and after a few jokes about the iconic Dirty Dancing lift into the air... Kiera and Dave were strongly encouraged by me (the lunatic) to pull this off. This was going to be epic! Almost as epic as pulling off the Iron Lotus for those Blade of Glory fans..
And so we take a few practices and then comes time for the real thing! Who knew there was so much thought put into the process of this jump. "Thumbs here, palms there, jump this way, lift with your knees". Annndddd presto!!
Ugh! This session like many others will have a place in my heart! Its moments like these that remind me why I keep pushing to build my business and get my name out there! For those who know me know I work full-time and run this business! With 12 months of hard work I am moving towards by goal of being a full-time photographer!!
I thank all of my clients, family and friends for your endless support and encourage all who want to enquire to do so!
And I thank this couple for allowing me to share these incredible moments with all the followers out there!
