It was by happy accident that Pippa and Justin came into my life. It is one of those moments where you discover the universe had something planned for you but you didn't quite know it at the time. We spoke of their plans via email over the past few months in the lead up to their wedding that was just last weekend and came to find we have a lot in common. Pippa and Justin met me just 5 days before their wedding in Yallingup for their engagement session. They appeared to have brought the humidity with them from Singapore and we strolled leisurely around Hyde Park trying to avoid the heat. We dodged running groups as we got to know each other and I learned more about their love story and how they came to be.
I adore engagement sessions for this reason. There is much less pressure and it allows us to become familiar with each other and for my clients to become familiar with the camera.
Just before we wrapped up the session, Pippa surprised Justin with a gift - a watch from Cartier that he had been eyeing off but unable to justify. To say he was surprised was an understatement and I just loved being able to document the moment.
