This Valentine’s collab photoshoot was so much fun! Once again, I teamed up with two other amazingly talented photogs who are now my close friends and we pulled together this Valentine’s Themed Giveaway shoot. We met up on a cold Saturday afternoon at the K2Milling mill in Beeton and were able to use their rustic space for our shoot.
We had a number of great submissions from couples who shared their love story with us. Lucy & James shared their story and we had a great time reading their story and spending an afternoon together with them. Here is Lucy and James’ love story!
Our story is sprinkled with sparkle dust and a great big serving of Fate!
I had lost my Dad in 2011 and it tore my heart out, best man I had ever known. After he died, I asked him for help on a lot of things, but mostly to bring the right kind of man to my and my 9-yr old daughter’s lives.
In the meantime, I was growing a business that was taking the bulk of my time leaving little time for social events! At the end of 2011 I reached a level that allowed a lot more flexibility and options, and having fun was now possible again!
James and I met online, half a world away from each other. After our first few interactions, and then our first conversations, we knew something very special had begun! Our daily phone conversations lasted 3 hours, and we had to pry ourselves off the phone! When we met in person for the first time in Chicago over St. Patty’s weekend we just knew we had found each other’s 1 in 7 billion 🙂
On January 4, 2014 we got married and are still reveling in the magic, and so grateful! Had we met one year earlier, or even later in life, we may not have had the opportunities to do all the necessary travel we did to seal our fate!
Nothing can stop true love.
Thank you Lucy and James for sharing your story with us! Now on to the pictures of these lovebirds!
