Kara & Ben | Engagement Shoot | Down by the River | 10th January 2010
Well after 5 years and almost a year of Ben holding onto the Engagement ring, on the 9th September 2009 (09-09-09) Ben finally decided it was the right time (or right date) to propose to my beautiful sister. I am very excited by the upcoming nuptials.. not because I am shooting it, but because I get to be a bridesmaid!! Yay! I am so excited. It will be so nice to get all dressed up in our super cute dresses (which we already have organised – this is one super organised bride) but it will also be amazing to sit back and watch another photographer do their thing. I love watching and learning and experiencing how other photographers work. I think it is one of the best ways to learn more about your craft.
Anyway I better get back to the point – Kara and Ben. Well one Sunday afternoon we headed out to the river to take some long over due engagement photos. This location was down a dirt road and was just a warm up. We had planned to take some other photos down by the river, but it just didn’t eventuate. So here is a few of my favourites from the session.
Can’t wait until the wedding!!! A quote that I think sums up Kara and Ben…
“All I really, really want our love to do, is to bring out the best in me and in you!” – Joni Mitchell
