A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have Ben & Olivia agree to meet with me on a frosty morning just after sunrise for their engagement session. By the end of the session we all had frozen fingers & were hanging out for hot cups of coffee, however we chanced upon the best morning light & it was great fun getting to know these lovebirds better before their big day in December.
Ben couldn't take his eyes off Olivia most of the engagement session so I knew straight away just how happy he is to be marrying the girl of his dreams. And it seems like Ben is a bit of a joker, because Olivia spent most of the session laughing at everything he said.
I asked Ben how they came to be engaged, immediately getting a chuckle from Olivia. Ben told me he had this ring & he thought he'd better ask the question. But before doing so in haste he made sure to 'de-sensitize her a little' (his words!) by repeatedly picking odd moments to bend down on one knee and...re-tie his shoelace. So when he did pop the question, down on one knee, on the Moeraki beach at sunset (heart-throb material I know!!!) Olivia was a little worried he wasn't being serious! But of course the story has a beautiful ending because he was being serious & Olivia said yes to the boy of her dreams!
I mean, just how gorgeous is their love?!
Ben & Olivia, you are such lovely, awesome people & were absolute troopers to brave such a frosty cold morning with me! I'm so happy for the opportunity to know you both better & to document your love. It makes me very excited to document the most amazing day later this year for you.xx
