Candice & Brendan || Engagement

You know how the moon only glows because it's reflecting off the sun? Well that's me with him. He is my sun and I only shine because he's there

Candice and Brendan are getting married in just over 6 weeks and saying I'm excited would be an understatement. These two shower each other with love and cuddles and you can't help but smile from ear to ear when you watch them interact with each other. It's real and honest and loveable and it makes me excited about love and the goodness it provides.

A couple of months ago, the three of us drove down to the mountains to celebrate their engagement and their love. We wandered over rocks and cliffs and caves and laughed about memories of their relationship. Whilst driving to our second location, I suddenly saw something out of the corner of my eye that made me yell out "Stop! Turn the car around". Candice and Brendan looked at each other and in trust turned the car around. We stopped by a path that led to a field of heavenly sunlight. We hopped out of the car and ran through the grass and took photos under the setting sun and the golden rays that shone down on us.

I feel so lucky that I get to work with couples who are trust me and follow me on crazy adventures. Photography shouldn't have to be static or boring - it should be fun, full of live and full of love.
