I love engagement sessions! I offer them in my Collections for free because I feel it is so vital to get to know my clients. I want to see how they love each other so I can better tell their story when their wedding day comes. I met this sweet couple because Harry had his grandmother’s diamond remounted at Burkes in Kilmarnock. It is a stunning stone and Fred did an AMAZING job. When you get an engagment ring through Burkes, you get a session with me 🙂 So when I showed up that day, I had not met either one of them face to face yet. I had some brief e-mail correspondence with each of them but that was it. It’s a rare thing to be treated like a friend with in seconds of meeting somone! I chuckled when the first words out of Erin’s mouth when I got there was “HEY! Come do my makeup!” LOL… She didn’t know me… but she went straight to my heart! That is so me. Even though I am in a business where I meet new people all the time, I still get a little nervous… and those few words, before a hello, were worth their weight in gold!
You may notice there are a lot of “kissy” photo’s in this session… When I was speaking to Harry before the session, it was one of the things he said he loved most about her…. The look in her eyes when he held her and kissed her. He’s a romantic… and she loves that about him.
We had a gorgeous chilly day in Urbanna. It just made them hold eachother a little tighter at moments… which I knew was FINE with them.
Harry and Erin… I had such an amazing time with the two of you… You made my heart light up and I adore your love story.
