Have I told you how much I love styled sessions… Well here is an engagement session set in the snow!
The couples love story from Kiarna.
“We met at a local pub in town. Josh was talking to a mutual friend of ours. I thought he was really cute, and had never seen him around before. So I went up to our mutual friend just to get introduced to Josh. We hit it off really well and talked all night. We left without exchanging numbers though. I went home that night and told my Mum that I had found my future husband. I told her ‘I’m going to marry that Jake Smith’ (I thought his name was Jake). We didn’t see each other again for about 6 months until we ran into each other at the pub again. A week later we were “going out” – Josh came to see me in my lunch break at work one day. He was really nervous, ran out of things to say and accidentally asked me out (he informed me of this 3 years later). 7 years on and we’re now engaged.
He proposed on the front verandah of our house. It was just the two of us there, enjoying a quiet drink together. It was very simple, but very sweet, and very Josh. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. He surprised me with one of my mother’s rings that he had taken and had re-made. I love it so much as my mother had sadly passed away 5 years ago and so it is extremely meaningful to me.
Josh grew up in the country in the Snowy Mountains, and has lived in the same small town all of his life. I grew up on the Gold Coast and miss the city life – but am happy to trade the coastal lifestyle to be with Josh. We’re very different, but balance each other out perfectly. We can’t imagine life without each other in it.” Kiarna said so beautifully.
And guess what!!!
I am sooooo super excited for them, they have won “Marry in the Morning” with Sunrise, $100,000 wedding thanks to Hayman Island and Qantas. If your up early keep your eye on Sunrise, I think it is going to be around October 19th… But not totally sure!!
Huge congratulations Kiarna + Josh xx
