Considering it had rained all the day before and immediately after our shoot, yes, I consider this lucky!

Emma and Jason are just the kind of people you can’t help but liking immediately.
We ate cheesecake and ice cream together already, so I kind of consider them my sweet-tooth buddies! They’ll get married later this year, and considering how utterly adorable they both are, I am quite excited to meet all of their friends and family because they can only be just as lovely.

If you find yourself thinking Aaaw, I wish I had someone who’d look at me like they look at each other, I wouldn’t blame you.

I honestly can’t wait to share with you the story of how these two met, but I am really DYING to share with you their proposal story, as it’s the most sweet of all and I’m a sucker for soppy stories. It’s made me giggle a little too.

That morning I jumped on a train to Basingstoke and found Helen and Dave waiting for me outside the station. Once in the car I realised there was a sweet thing poking my head with its nose behind me. Max (their dog) would be a special guest that day.

We arrived at a field I do not know the name of, and I left The Perfect 3 (that’s how I’ll be calling them from now on) playing and laughing and having a good time.

They’re getting married later this year and I am so much looking forward to it!
What a lovely, lovely day.

One of the things I’m very happy about this year,is having decided last December to include an engagement shoot and an album in my most popular package option.

The chance to spend a few hours alone with your couples, having them getting used to be photographed in a silly and light-hearted way, far from the pressure of a wedding day’s timeline and without the anxiety that comes from having guests waiting for you to come back from the photoshoot, is absolutely priceless.

Yesterday, Helen and Dave, who are getting married later this year, brought me to Basingstoke, in a large and open field for their engagement shoot, their dog Max was there and it was adorable, I got to know all about how they met and how he proposed (for that you’ll have to wait their wedding’s Photostory I’m afraid, but it’s a lovely story), and they had a taste to what it’s like having pictures taken in a lovable way.

They know now that on their wedding day, the person to steal them away from the crowd for a while will not be a stranger. And that makes all the difference in the world.

Soon the whole set ♥
