I have put this post off for quite some time, for many reasons, I wanted it to be the first blog on my new website and I think one reason was having to pen this write up, this shoot was almost as special as this couple is to me, Brett & Chantel started dating when she was still a fresh faced teenager and have been together ever since, the only person who can rival Brett for Chantel’s attention and love is me, we met while studying photography and bonded over a bottle of tequila in my car (its a long story that could be an entire blog post in itself) with a friendship founded on the same passion for photography and disdain for our theory lecturer, we fast became inseparable, the Blondes, the best friends, the sisters, Chantel and I are two peas in a POT (yes I know it’s pod) and wherever we go we get asked if we are sisters and I honestly feel like she is, where I am short, she is tall, I shoot Nikon she shoots Canon, but in most aspects we are one in the same, but she is and always will be the Ying to my Yang…
One day I got to meet her then boyfriend, Brett, we instantly hit it off and he has fast become one of my best friends, on their wedding day you could find me getting ready with the girls and also rallying to get to the boys, I love them both equally and couldn’t imagine life without either of them…they truly are my favourite couple, they inspire me, and show me what a marriage should be like, I even love the way they argue.
next year these two would have been together for 10 years, and in that decade have built up a life, a home and a family (the four furry’s Joey, Bailey, Amber and Cassey) together, for their first anniversary they decided to do a shoot starting at home, photographing them in their favourite place, their home.
Brett thank you for being such a sport and putting up with an entire days shoot,
Chantel you made my life so easy with the amount of effort you put into that day
Brett & Chantel you two are my best friends, my family, my life, I love you lots!
