Jane & Kelvin
The affection between Jane and Kelvin during their sweet, sun-drenched afternoon engagement shoot has positively given me goosebumps today, that are definitely not from our cool weather. The warmth radiating from this engagement (the light! The love!) is enough to chase away the chill that clings on at the end of winter. Jane and Kelvin chose Pictures and Hearts to accompany them to the waterside to capture these beautiful shots.
Of how they met, Jane remembers, “We met in a bar back in 2007. I noticed a very handsome guy sitting across the room from me. My eyes were glued on him for a bit too long, to the point where he caught me looking. I was really embarrassed yet smitten at the same time. Kelvin took the courage to walk up to me and asked for a dance, he then politely asked me what drink I wanted. We exchanged numbers, and our nine year love story has bloomed from then on.”
Jane tells the story of how Kelvin asked her to marry him. “He took me to Hunter Park in Bondi Beach, where we went on our second date. To my surprise, after climbing up steep stairs, I saw our closest friends standing in the sun who apparently waited for half an hour for us to find their location. With the beach and clear blue sky as the backdrop, Kelvin lost his words that he prepared but managed to ask the question that changed our lives…”
Jane gushes about their photographer, and the location of their engagement shoot. “I was drawn to Pictures & Hearts for their style of photography where they always capture the magical and narrative story of each couple. We love nature, and Camp Cove Beach in Watsons Bay has bit of everything; trees, stone, water, and sand. So much natural beauty to leverage, that makes each photo pop. Sunset by the beach was also a bonus!” With images like these, we can understand why Jane and Kelvin chose Camp Cove Beach, and Pictures & Hearts.
“Our approach to certain situations are quite different, but it is our differences that balance each other out so well. We are so comfortable and confident to know that one of us will be there to make it all okay at the end of the day. We have both brought out nothing but the best in each other, things that we didn’t think were possible. Few of the many things I love about Kelvin are his patience, tolerance and willingness to always feed me.” Says Jane of Kelvin and their relationship, and he gushes about his bride, “I love her company, her caring nature, and that she is a family orientated person from the very core.”
What an amazing engagement session. Congratulations Jane and Kelvin, and thank you, with Pictures & Hearts, for sharing your beautiful images with us!
