A few weeks ago, Julianne got in touch with Tom & I looking to get a couple’s shoot for her and Stephanie. We chatted and she told us that she was planning to ask Steph to marry her on the day of the shoot! How amazingly exciting!
We invited her to come down to us in Aughrim to scout out a place for her to go on the shoot and where best to pop the question. We scouted our old reliable woods in Annacurragh to great effect because Jules fell in love straight away with the area! 🙂
We walked and talked, learning more about her & Steph’s journey together, about where they’re from and how Jule’s Dad helped her with the engagement ring! We had done our lap of the forest and discovered a lovely space under a large tree where Jules would surprise Steph. All done and dusted, we waited for the two of them to come back a few weeks later, playing oblivious to the fact we ever met, even pretending to be a friend of a friend filling out our portfolio!
We cannot praise the two women enough, they were brilliant to work with, and when it came to the big moment, the shock and genuine surprise on Steph’s face was just amazing! Tom, being the gentle soul that he is, shed a few tears for the happy couple as he secretly filmed the special moment for them!
Steph, Jules, we wish you both massive congratulations on your engagement, and thank you so, so much for involving us to help capture it for you!
