People often ask me where I get inspiration from when I do engagement session for couples. Well, the answer is simple: from your love story! There is no better and original story then your own ! Every couple and every person is different and that’s what I like about them!
Books are my inspiration too but mainly to imagine the scenery, to put that imagination onto the photographs. And today’s save the date session was one of that shoots, that it felt like beautiful romantic book.
First, I will start with the place where we shoot: MELROSE
Does this name is not romantic already itself ? Perfect for the book title!
She had planned her long weekend with her girlfirends at the Glasgow’s night club. The party was dressing up to 1920-40s and the music was to that times as well. Girls had so much fun and when on horizon a very attractive WW1 officer’s show up Abi felt uncharacteristically brave that moment and for the first time in her life she winked at that man. It obviously worked as he vaulted over a metal railing to follow her, before her friends propelled her into him saying, “this is Abi, say hello.”
“Hi, I’m James”
He couldn’t took eyes from Abi as he thought she is irresistibly attractive.
5 1/2 years later when they were having the holiday of a lifetime in the Amazon forest on the banks of the Tambopata River and were waiting for the sun to go down and it gets cool enough to venture out. They had a 30 min break between treks so he took Abi down to the River and distracted her with a pair of binoculars by asking her if she thought it was a log, a bird or a caiman floating down the river. When she finally took the binoculars away he was next to her, down in the sand on one knee, holding a very pretty ring and she never did find out if it was a log or not!
They both quite similar in how they feel about their families and how important they are to them. They share same values, Abi makes James lough and he really enjoy her company even now after almost 6 years being together, he can’t take his eyes of her. She loves his humor and sense of adventure and if they are ever fortunate enough to have their own family he will be an amazing, positive influence on their lives.
I know they will have a lot of adventures in their life and having each other is all they need….
He will keep Abi laughing into old age…. and she will be the forever his irresistibly attractive girl he will look at and grow old with….
I can’t wait to share with them one of their adventure which is their wedding this Saturday!
