Sometimes I just love that the world sometimes feels so small… you know what they say about the whole 6 degrees of separation. That means that everyone is connected in some way or another – and that seriously gives me the warm & fuzzies. Especially as a self employed gal who at times can find working from home quite isolating – and yes, sometimes I do talk to myself and look like a total crazy.
Anyway, Taela + Sam are total proof of that concept. Years ago, when I was living in Toowoomba (so you guys, when I say years – I mean YEARS) I worked at this lovely little coffee shop called The Chocolate Cottage. I know right, yum! Well, it turns out that my gorgeous JFL bride Taela is actually the daughter of my old bosses that owned the cafe. That must be less than 6 degrees right there! I’m so excited to be a part of Taela & Sam’s journey to becoming husband & wife and that connection just makes it even sweeter…
At the end of last year, I caught up with them to document their Country Toowoomba Engagement as well as their Engagement Party that night. It was so special to be a part of this first celebration of their love!
Here’s a peek into the photos we took during the afternoon together:
This pair are just the cutest… and the country backdrop was just perfect for their photos!
To make it extra special, we were able to take some photos on the property next door to the one Taela’s parents own, that used to be her grandparents. I love that she has so many memories growing up there that it made for an extra special touch to their photos…
Taela & Sam, thank you so much for trusting me to document this exciting time in your lives – I’m honestly SO excited about your wedding this year and cannot wait to be a part of the incredible celebration that it will be! Bring on September!
Wish them well in the comments below you guys – and I’d love to hear what you think of these photos:
