Judith & Steve … When love chooses you

The First Moment of Charm

An unexpected encounter.
When someone takes you by surprise and makes you laugh they become unforgettable.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Falling in Love

You know you’re in love when you get butterflies waiting for them.
And when they come, the whole world disappears.
It’s just you and them.
No body else matters.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The Pain of Goodbyes

Duty calls.
It is an internal struggle.
How do you say goodbye and stay strong when everything is hurting inside?
He knows he is hurting her.
She knows it is not his fault.
What can do other than wait. Pray. And Love.


The real story behind the story
For Judith & Steve’s shoot I’ve kept my words short and sweet. If you want to read their full love story you can read it here (they won the Thaoski-Darren competition in July) and in all honesty I can’t tell the story better than Judith. I remember getting teary the first time I read it because the essence of her story is, you can’t choose the one you love, love chooses you.

Steve is actually wearing his real army uniform. And the beautiful white dress Judith is wearing is from Candy Anthony who designs 1950s & 1960s inspired wedding and evening gowns.

The photographic story you see above is very real to both Judith & Steve. Duty often calls him away. So even though they love each other deeply, they are often apart. But this month they are tying the knot. Neither time or distance can separate them.

If you like this shoot, please comment below and let Judith and Steve know how amazing they look!

ps. If this photo shoot leaves you feeling a little incomplete, come back on Thursday when I reunite them in the next photographic love story. Yes, there is more still to come … I couldn’t just leave them like that!

pps. Over the next coming days I’ll upload some more pictures on facebook of Judith & Steve that didn’t quite make the blog. Some of them will be happy shots that didn’t fit inline with the story so connect with me on facebook for more updates : )

    In pain, there is always beauty. Capturing that is one of your most amazing talents.

      Hehe thanks Humaira … I was actually thinking about writing a personal blog post on this – to share more of my personal story (I haven’t got anything that dramatic) but it will probably shed some light why I like capturing the darker shades of love.

    Looking at your blog always makes me wish I was newly engaged so I could hire you to style my pre-wedding shoot – this is no exception. Beautiful concept, executed perfectly.

    I love your work. It has such a wonderful cinematic quality to it. With every frame a story unfolds. And each frame is so full of narrative and beautiful composition. <3
