Hope you’re enjoying the wonderful summer! Todays shoot is a little bit different than most of the engagement shoots. As Laura couldn’t join Andy and Adam for their big day, she had an idea to pull all the stops for the engagement shoot – especially that the location was so amazing. She invited other suppliers, styled the whole thing and photographed it beautifully.
Read their story and all about the shoot below!
Andy and Adam met on the 23rd Sept 2009, exactly 8 years later they tied the knot, and they disembarked on a honeymoon of a lifetime at the end of May!
Andy and Adam met in a bar. Breaking all the ‘rules’ they moved in with each other after only a month of dating. 4 months in and Buster their puppy completed their romantic whirlwind relationship.
Adam proposed New Years Eve 2012, on a white sandy beach in Thailand. The fireworks had just announced a New Year when Adam got down on one knee. The perfect proposal stopped there… Adam had borrowed the ring from a friends past relative and lost it almost straight away in the sand… 2 hours of searching went by (Andy disapproving!) and finally the ring was found!
Adam and Andy made their way into a small town to have personalised rings made to remember the time away.
So excited to be sharing this shoot with you!! It’s definitely different from anything I’ve shared on this blog so far, and I hope you love it too. Gisela and Garazi’s lovely styled couple shoot starts with hanging out on the sofa and turns into portraits in the most gorgeous outfits (by our own Brighton based L-O-M!).
“Wherever she is, this is home to me”
I was reading an article about a same-sex couple, and the discrimination they suffered just to show their love publicly. It’s so sad… How can we destroy the essence of a word like “love”, with this kind of hate? It’s terrible. And I was talking with a friend about it, and she told me that it would be great to do something together, she with her girlfriend, just loving them each other at home. Well, we had everything planned and two days before she told me she can’t, and then I found Garazi and Gisela, and they were perfect for this. That’s why we had an idea about a very simply shooting at home, with a couple, in a normal lifestyle shoot. Laying in the sofa, exchanging some anecdotes, sharing warm smiles… Love has many faces, and for us this was the perfect Sunday morning face.
