One day I received a phone call from a gentleman called Declan who wanted to surprise his girlfriend whose name was Sarah, with a vintage inspired couple’s photography session. Since it was almost her birthday, he decided that a gift voucher would be the best option and I eventually had the pleasure of meeting this lovely couple at my studio.
Upon arrival, Sarah and Declan each received a glass of complementary bubbles. Then we whisked Sarah away to have her hair styled and makeup applied by the talented Gemma Sheree from GSL Makeup. During this time, Declan relaxed in our sitting area until we were ready to start shooting.
Since Sarah and Declan have their own farm, we decided to channel a beautiful country spirit within our session. Whilst Declan opted to wear some amazing clothes of his own, Sarah selected some Vivien of Holloway garments from the rail in our studio, all of which were acquired from Australia’s exclusive stockist of the brand, Christine’s.
For Sarah’s first outfit, we paired some cute high-waisted denim shorts with a blue gingham halter-neck top that she adored. After taking some photos of her and Declan in our little hayshed scene, she changed into a lovely ‘Leopard Lily’ circle dress and red petticoat. This fifties frock surely was the perfect dress to wear for a picnic, even if it was just a pretend one inside a photography studio. 😉
I must admit that I had the biggest smile after seeing the sweet post that Sarah tagged us in on Facebook. It makes me very happy to hear that she and Declan had a wonderful day and loved their photos.
Although I have probably said it over a thousand times before, I really do love my job. I truly enjoy being able to help create special memories for fabulous couples like Sarah and Declan to treasure for many, many years to come.
P.S. I thought that I’d share with y’all some behind the scenes iPhoneography, which Gemma Sheree kindly helped me out with.
