I met Morgan when I was just 17 years old (I'm now almost 24) and the night didn't provide a story that we ever thought would turn in to our love story .. but it did. I had arrived to a big house party in my area with my best friend and as we were walking in I walked past a guy (Carlos) I knew from school who was 3 years older and happened to be standing with 'some guy' aka Morgan, I didn't know. We had stopped to say hey, and that was that, off we walked. Morgan had thought I was cute, and had given Carlos instructions to pass along his number if and when he saw me next, a promise Carlos saw through and an offer I took up. Within a day of us texting he had whisked me off on our first date - playing pool and watching a movie. One date turned in to a few and I knew I had found someone special. Things got in the way though - travel, ex's and age and we never became serious but always stayed in touch (whilst I held a secret flame for him the whole time). Then something changed. I was 19, he was 23, and we were ready to give 'us' a good go. I remember him rocking up to my door with a bunch of flowers asking me to officially be his girlfriend and inviting me to watch his cricket game. We were both completley smitten and it was the start of something amazing.
That was almost 5 years ago and we've never looked back. Sure we argue, we get angry, we've had doubts and had some incredibly tough times, but at the end of the day that is what makes our imperfect love perfect. So like any relationship, there is and has been trials, but here is the good. I have never met anyone like Morgs and count my blessings when I wake up to him each morning and mean it every night when we both say how grateful we are for one another. I love that after 5 years I still smile and get excited when I pull in to our driveway and know his inside. I love that we support one another as individuals and encourage independance as much as working on us as a couple. I love that he without a doubt, can make me laugh no matter what. I love that we 'get' one another and support each other no matter what. But most of all, I just love him, everything about him.
We were so lucky recently to have an amazing photographer - Belinda - who knew of our crazy little love want to photograph our 'essence' & for us to have some pics of us to treasure. These are the pics I'm sharing with you today and we loved them, I mean loved them. Belinda made us feel so at ease and directed us through the whole thing if we needed it. She operates out of Perth, WA, and does couples shoots and mums and bubs (or new families) - if you have been wanting or thinking of having some special pics recently I can't encourage you enough to do it. You can contact Belinda here if you want to enquire in to a shoot .. she even comes with her own make up artist!
