When an enquiry email begins with “Ok, let’s hear your best dad joke”, I’m not only excited because someone has clearly read my website, but it also indicates that I’m about to meet people who enjoy cheesiness as much as I do.
And it’s true! These are fun people.
Nikki came up with the hilariously brilliant idea to go op-shopping for the shoot and dress as their future oldies. I instantly loved how different this engagement session was bound to be.
It wasn’t until during the shoot, that I realised just how relevant this mood would be for them specifically.
The idea of dressing up in public and having giggle fits, yet also representing their life-long commitment to one another into old age is an obvious theme here. However, once I began shooting and seeing their interactions, it became clear that this is also a perfect descriptor for their relationship. They were able to swiftly interchange between cracking each other up, and soft moments of tender understanding.
Every once in a while I am amazed at how two people can be so undeniably made for each other, my time with Nikki and Tim was one of those moments.
They even inspired a sappy insta post on how the heck humans are able to find someone so perfect for them and how insanely grateful I am to witness it in my job.
