John, Renee and I first met at Renee’s parent’s beautiful acreage home for their Brisbane Engagement Shoot. I knew the moment we met that it was going to be nothing but fun and giggles, and it was. This couple has such a cute little love story…they met 8 years ago at a mutual friend’s party. John spent the next 7 years trying to convince Renee that she should go to coffee with him. Renee finally gave in and she instantly knew that he was the one. They moved in together three months later!! It was the start of a true romance!!
John and Renee were talking about how John would propose before they knew it. John often joked that it would happen one year and one day after they got together. Instead, John surprised Renee and popped the question one day before their one year anniversary! As John explained how he’d met with Renee’s Mum and Dad to ask for their blessing they both shed tears. He even showed them the beautiful ring that Renee had her heart set on!
I met them for their Brisbane engagement shoot in early April, and we had an absolute blast. My number one rule to a successful shoot is to make sure you have FUN, and we did!! The setting was beautiful. It also had hidden meaning as it is where they have chosen to have their wedding in the Autumn of 2022. The couple has decided on a do it yourself wedding. It’s set to be an amazing day with a river running through the palm tree line property. I’m so fortunate to be their wedding photographer and can not wait to witness the next steps in their wonderful romance. Watch this space for their wedding coming early next year, very exciting!
