Earlier this month, I reached out to Matt & Brett on Instagram to see if they'd be keen for a couples shoot. Lucky for me, they were super excited!
We travelled into Newcastle and had their session in a gorgeous little park surrounded by flower gardens.
We decided a picnic with nibbles and cocktails was the perfect session for them!
We sat and talked and sipped our cocktails as the sun set behind us. Matt & Brett told me about their adventures on travel guides. Mostly about all the amazing cocktails they enjoyed, who can blame them?!
During the session, we wandered around the location and watched the sky turn so colourful as the sun crept behind the horizon. It was a beautiful sunset for a beautiful couple!
Matt & Brett told me they were more friendly when it came to affection. As I normally prompt my couples to get super close for more intimate, snuggly photos, I found this a bit of a challenge at first.
As a photographer, it's my job to adjust to suit my clients needs. I was more than happy to play around with posing and prompts with Matt & Brett to find what they felt comfortable with.
During the session Matt & Brett told me they've been together for 19 years, married for 17years and have been embracing adventures ever since! In my pre-sessiom questionnaire, I ask couples to describe their relationship in 5 words. Most couples use descriptive words like "adventurous, inlove, fun" etc. When I seen Matt & Brett's answer, I was happily shocked and instantly my heart melted! They wrote, "Partnership to Last a Lifetime" How sweet is that?! The session was full of laughter, dancing and sipping cocktails.
It was such a relaxed and funny session, everything lined up so well! I could not have asked for a better couple, sunset or session.
