It is no secret how wedding-obsessed I am. I spend most of my mornings looking through wedding blogs, and more often than not, whenever I see a beautiful engagement shoot published on a wedding blog, there will always be comments along the lines of "I wish my hubs and I thought of doing an engagement shoot before we got married!" Well guys, maybe it's true that "engagement" shoots can only be taken before your wedding...but guess what: It's never too late to have beautiful pictures of you taken as a married couple! This is precisely why we have wedding shoots. Some photographers call them Beloved sessions, others call them wedding or post-wedding shoots. I call it "grabbing life by the cajones". ;)
Yvonne and Luke tied the knot last year, but didn't have a chance to be photographed in their wedding outfits. Rather than giving up the thought of being photographed in her luscious wedding dress, Yvonne arranged a time for them to have a wedding shoot after the wedding. Not only that, but after the shoot, they arranged for a wedding lunch with their friends and family. You see, Yvonne is from Hong Kong, and Luke is from Witney. They now live in Dubai, so you can see what a challenge it is for them to get their family and friends all together to celebrate their union. But they grabbed life by the cajones and made it happen.
Boy, was I ever so glad they did. I'm certain that Yvonne and I will remain friends long after their wedding shoot. Easy with her smiles, Yvonne has one of the most infectious laughs ever. Every time she laughed, I couldn't help but laugh along with her. And although she'd warned me that she's not very photogenic, once I saw her in person, looking like the personification of the word FABULOUS, I knew we were going to be juuuust fine.
Yvonne and Luke, I loved every moment of your shoot and your wedding lunch. Your families are a bunch of the sweetest people and I was so very sorry when it came time for me to leave! I wish you both the best in your marriage, and do contact me whenever you're in town!
