Couples often include their furry family members in portraits but Jess and Ben may have set the new record for how many dogs we've had join us for an engagement session!
Last Thursday evening we trekked over to Blackmount to catch up with these two on the family farm. The farm Dunluce has been in Jess's family since the 1800's! Jess is the fourth generation. It was very special to spend some quality time with her and Ben in their patch of paradise.
Ben and Jess actually get married here on the farm on New Year's Eve and we can't wait for the epic celebration that it will be. When Jess first got in touch with me about wedding photography she said they'd toyed with the idea of a New Year's Eve wedding but had no idea if it was really logistically possible. I reckon celebrating love and the start of a beautiful marriage is a pretty darn awesome way to bring in a New Year!
We started off Ben and Jess's engagement session around the yards, including the original farm woolshed with all it's character, then we took the trucks up the hill to let the dogs run wild and soak up the sun rays.
Our last stop for the evening was right up to the very top of the farm to watch the skies change to evening as the moon came up. What an epic place to live!
Ben and Jess we loved our time with you both last week, thank you for having us out to the farm! Bring on New Year's Eve!!! x
