Hello again! This is the 3rd instalment of the Instagram competition winners. If you have just joined us you can click HERE for part 1 or HERE to go to part 2! I ran an Instagram competition back in August (but I’m writing this like it’s in real time!) and 3 lucky couples were randomly selected as the winning recipients of a 60 min couples session and an online gallery of their images! I have been blogging these sessions and I hope you have enjoyed reading them and seeing the photographs.

There is a special place in my heart for our final couple. Firstly (and like the other 2 couples) they are also engaged and getting married in January 2019. (Hooray for engagements and weddings!!) Their names came out as the winners and I contacted them (most excitedly) to let them know – but also to see what they wanted to do as they had a pre-wedding session booked in with me already as part of their wedding. Yep, they had already booked me as the photographer for their wedding. I thought they might want to gift the session to someone else who entered. Shannon said “oh we would LOVE TO have 2 sessions with you! We love photos!” This, my friend, is music to my ears.
We decided to meet up at Bell’s Rapids. What you need to know, by the way, after months of emailing back and forth this was actually the first time I was going to meet them. It was like we had been friends since forever! I loved shooting these 2!! We met, we photographed and they were fantastic! I am so honoured to have had this privilege of meeting Shannon and Pierre and we are so excited that I get to shoot their official engagement shoot soon and then their wedding in 2019!
