Angie and Marius are engaged and will be exchanging vows later this year. (I am so excited for their wedding).

After meeting with Angie and Marius to discuss their wedding day, it was time to plan their engagement photo shoot. Marius is in the motor vehicle industry and Angie is a dancer. After throwing a few ideas around, we decided on the concept for the shoot, which suited both their personalities. Just a little bit of history, this amazing couple met on Facebook. After chatting online on a few occasions, Marius was adamant that he was taking Angie out for dinner. Angie, was not so keen on the idea but Marius insisted. They enjoyed dinner at a stylish restaurant and their relationship started.

I love the story of their engagement. On Christmas Eve, after having supper with parents, Marius turned to Angie and said he wants to give her a Christmas present. Marius went down on one knee, but then remained silent. Angie stood, quite bewildered, wondering what is Marius doing. Marius was holding the ring in his hand stretched out towards Angie, and then he started talking. Marius spoke and eventually the words came out – “Will you Marry Me?” Well the rest is history.

A perfect winters afternoon set the scene, a gentle breeze, sunshine, a warm 23 degrees – could not ask for better. We started on their farm with their two kids. Over active kids a might add, but it was such fun capturing the moments. There were plenty of laughs.

Then we were off to Margate for the second part of the session. A vintage car parked in a grassland set the scene with the afternoon sun spilling in from behind.

As the sunset, Marius’s plane was waiting for for him as he was travelling for business. It was quite a rush as the pilot wanted to take off in daylight hours.

A quick dance, a kiss and a little cuddle and then Marius has to leave to get on his flight.
