Kim & Nam
I really don’t think it is possible for this dreamy seaside engagement to be any prettier than it is. There isn’t much more for me to say, other than sit back, relax and prepare to be swept away by Kim and Nam’s exquisite engagement session, captured by Jemma Keech.
Kim describes how she and Nam came to be. “We first met on Christmas Eve in Myer while we were both getting our last minute shopping done, but after that encounter we didn’t see each other again until a whole year later on Christmas Eve again. This time we saw each other at church where he came up to me and asked me on a date.”
As far as proposal stories go, Kim and Nam’s is pretty amazing. Kim remembers, “On the day that we got engaged, it was Nam’s birthday, so we took a boat out and spent the day cruising around the Swan River until about lunch, where we stopped off at Point Walter to have a picnic. I had packed Nam a birthday hamper, which turned out to be nothing compared to what he had prepared. Before lunch we went for a little walk to the sand bank where the water was crystal clear and there was absolutely no one around us. It was so beautiful and peaceful. He said he had to go the bathroom, so ran all the way back while I waited for him. As I turned around he came walking back with a huge bunch of roses, and his guitar. He then started singing “Marry Me” bye Bruno Mars, got down on one knee and said those magic words, “Will you marry me?”. That moment was pure bliss. Afterwards, he had planned an evening dinner at the restaurant we had our first date, the exact same spot four years earlier. He planned a menu with the chef from start to finish with everything I love to eat. It was an absolute dream!”
Kim and Nam chose to have their engagement session on the sand and cliffs of one of the beaches in Perth. Kim says, “We chose the a relaxed beach style shoot because we are so blessed to live in such a beautiful country that produces amazing beaches, and I just love the feeling of wind, sand and water.” With the soft touch of the sunset on their faces as they stroll hand in hand, we can understand why this was the obvious choice for their photos.
Nam gushes about his bride, “I love everything about my beautiful wife. How gullible she is which always makes me laugh! How selfless she is – she always puts others first. Most of all I love her honesty and her pure heart. I am comfortable, and I can be myself, when I am around her and I know that she loves me with all her heart.” And Kim counters with what she loves about Nam. “I love his kind heart, his patience, how caring he is. The way he loves me and the people around him, and just being able to look at him knowing that he will one day be the most amazing father and role model to our children.”
Congratulations Kim and Nam! Such a stunning engagement session. Thank you to the gorgeous couple, and Jemma Keech, for sharing it with us!
