Please excuse the longer-than-normal post. To be honest, it's just because trying to chose my favourite shot's from this gorgeous couples session was so hard & not particularly because I think the images are all amazing, but more so the people in it & to be honest, I just want to show them off.
Shannon got in touch while I was in Ireland for my not-long-enough Christmas break, about a couples session for her and Joel. I couldn't say yes quick enough. I love capturing love.
Shannon & I started talking about where they wanted the pictures, when the Coast was suggested. Oh the beautiful North Coast. It was decided - we were going to try and make it to the coast in the hope of catching golden hour sunrise, so off we set at 8.30am, tired eyes but full of excitement. In the end, we didn't catch the sunrise, but instead a beautiful crisp fog.
Joel & Shannon are world changers, influencers & culture changers. Getting to hear their hearts, hopes and dreams throughout this session gave me such a full heart. They're the sort of couple that settle themselves in front of you for long, intentional and encouraging conversation. They are the sort of couple, that when you leave them, you just wish you had more time together. The very best thing about them though?- Easy, All that they are is founded in God. He is the Centre of everything. Its beautiful & humbling & challenging.
On my way home I read a quote that said -
"Surround yourself with people who reflect the sort of person you want to be". That's Shannon & Joel. And boy, you can bet that if there wasn't a massive pool of water between us, I would surround myself with them a whole lot more. The world belongs to the dreamers.
I really loved taking these - I really hope you like them.
OKAY SERIOUSLY - HOW FREAKING BEAUTIFUL IS SHANNON?!
