Hanna & Tim {Married}

2015 weddings are upon us. And boy do we have some gooorgeous couples who are marrying the love of their lives this season. Hanna and Tim are one of those couples. It’s a true blessing to witness the magnetic joy between two people on the happiest day of their lives to date. We love seeing the energy and excitement that comes from them right until the very end, regardless how exhausted they might be (wedding days are BIIIG days).
That moment when they put their arms around each others waists at the end of their night, peer into each others eyes with the silliest smiles on their faces and call each other “my husband” and “my wife” with utter glee…. they are the moments we thrive on!

Hanna and Tim chose the beautiful Langdale Vineyard for their wedding. And the 30 degree, blue sky day chose them. And together they chose each other after meeting in their teens on their family holidays. They’re both loving, fun, bouncy and wonderful people! And we are so happy we were able to capture their special day!!

As usual, Doug and I went out separate ways for the first couple of hours of the day. We’ve spoken so often about changing the way we do things, but things always stay the way it is because it works. Doug loves getting to know the guys and I love getting to know the girls in the first section of the day… And I freaking love catching up with the Groomsman later in the day and hearing hooow much they loved hanging out with Doug before the ceremony. My hubby is a pretty likeable guy after all! :)

It’s an amazing feeling stepping into your dress knowing that *this time*… you’ll actually be walking towards your future husband!! Hanna was a little in love with her dress too and couldn’t wait to wear it all day! And I can see why!

Big kudos to the lovely Andy on the far right. A lovely down to earth guy, who rocks life with just one leg. We can have a judges ruling – but from the looks of things… he jumped the highest!!! … Oh yeaaah!

Doug and I are naturally very different people with different ideas. I love my classic romantic style shots, where as Doug loves to get super Arty. This is the same shot, two different cameras, two different visions, two completely different photos. I looove Doug’s arty abstract take on it!
