...and I forgot where we were & kissed you lightly on the nose & suddenly there was no more secret.' ~ Storypeople
Secrets. I can be trusted with them. This I have discovered. I never used to be good at keeping secrets… when I was a kid I was useless in fact… but now I’m a bit of a pro.
It’s just one of the many great things about my job, I get to know the good news first. :) A few years back I was lucky enough to photograph a very good friend's wedding and that was a BIG fat secret. That was a tough one to keep in… very tough… I didn’t reply to texts or phone calls for weeks. But I did it.
I’ve known Katie for about 8 years as we used to work at the same place but I hadn't seen her for years (oh apart from that night at the pub with the 'psychic' dude, remember that Katie?!!). Then she got in touch a few years back and booked a session for her and her two gorgeous boys. We had such a good time and have kept in touch ever since. Funny how things work out.
Anyway Katie decided to book a session with me for her & her boyfriend Jonathan as a Valentine's gift. She wanted some beautiful photos of the two of them, a special treat and something they can look back on in years to come and just remember...
Little did she or I know (although I bet the psychic dude knew) that this session months later would end up being their engagement session!
We all met at Marbury Park and I will always remember the look on Katie's face... "we've got a secret..." and then she shoved out her hand in front of me with a huge grin on her face. Jonathan's grin was just as wide.
I will admit to getting a little teary eyed... I've never seen two people more happy. Honestly, it was infectious.
Katie & Jonathan... thank for trusting me, thank you for being such a good sports with the hot pink brolly on such a busy day in the park and thank you for booking me to shoot your wedding next year. I cannot WAIT. xxxx
