Jess + Lucie | Mt Coot-tha Engagement Shoot
Jess and Lucie are nothing short of adorable.
They were gifted this engagement shoot by their good friend Nicola - who had also been gifted her engagement shoot almost two years earlier (Nicola and Jamie's engagement shoot featured ice-cream in the face smashes and the most epic hail story - still one of my favourite shoots to date and if you haven't seen their story already, click here for a real treat)
On a bright winters afternoon, I met Jess and Lucie at Mt Coot-tha. I jumped in their backseat and together we ventured to a secret little place I had spotted recently that I knew would be perfect for this pair. Time actually seemed to slow down as we found rocks to jump, bursts of light to chase and secret little paths to explore. Unprompted, they danced. Lucie jumped into Jess' arms and they held each other so tight. Hands were kissed tenderly. And laughter - every beautiful moment of still was punctuated with heads-back-eyes shut laughter.
Then towards the end of the session, Jess + Lucie brought out a leather-bound book. Inside, the handwritten fairytale that Jess had written Lucie, featuring their very own love story and with a wedding proposal, their very own happily ever after.
Jess and Lucie - the love you have for one another made for the most inspiring, magical afternoon. This is your story xx
As Jess and Lucie were leaving the studio following their image preview session, they commented on how it would never have occurred to them to get engagement photos and yet now, how glad they were to have them. If you are interested in an engagement shoot - or you know someone who has recently gotten engaged and want to gift them with something really memorable - drop me a line and we can have a chat.
