“Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Taking photos and hanging out with people in love is too much fun. We’ve got the privilege of sharing Laura and Tim’s day with them in a few weeks so we thought we would scope out where they got engaged and where they will ultimately get married.
Como Pleasure Grounds is a place close to our heart- I (JJ) used to live just across the bridge. I spent many hours hitting the asphalt on my bike and feet and Como was a great place to stop, catch my breath and enjoy the view. I always thought it would be the perfect place to get married so we’re really looking forward to the ceremony.
I actually went to school with Tim and used to go to church with Laura so my head is spinning with the worlds colliding but we’re so happy they found each other.
Laura and Tim- what can you say? They love laughing, joking and just being with each other. Once they got warmed up in front of the camera there was no stopping them. They were good sports letting us be creative and try out new ideas we came up with to let them chill and have a moment with each other with some added twists.
You’ll see in the photos the safer and sweeter results as we asked them to reflect on their journey together and what they were looking forward to most about spending the rest of their lives together. We also asked them later to pick out their favourite body parts of their partner and also got them to have a crack at drawing each other for some great portraits. There were a few others but we’ll keep that between us:D
To finish off Tim showed us a side of Como we’d never seen before that was only accessible through a dodgy train tunnel through to a secret forest so a big thanks to Tim for schooling a local.
We hope you enjoy these photos as we keep having fun taking them! See you soon, Laura and Tim:)
