Styled Engagement Shoot ~ Andrew & Bree
We were delighted to have the pleasure to work alongside Renee Towers Photography and Pomodoras on Obi last year and offer a competition prize of a styled engagement photo shoot with dinner & champagne for two. The applicants had to send in a small editorial of why they deserved to win and Andrew & Bree were certainly a stand out couple for us. This is their story as told by Bree
“My name is Bree and I have been truly blessed to have recently become engaged to the most wonderful, sweet man with a true heart of gold- Andrew. After three years together, in August this year we made the trip of a lifetime to Peru, before I get weighed down by my studies next year. We decided to do the Inca trail together and I really underestimated how hard it would be. After 4 days of beautiful surrounds, lifelong new friends, literal breathlessness (I swear I now know why they call it “dead woman’s pass) hardship and no shower we finally reached the Sungate on the 4th day. At the top of the mountain, overlooking Machu Picchu our tour guide lead us to the highest point at the Sungate. There he performed a coca leaf reading – he could foresee a man who was troubled by a question.. A question he had to ask someone. It was then that Andrew held my hand and looked in my eyes. I knew immediately by the warmth that shone through his eyes.. and then he asked me to marry him. I was so emotional all I could do was nod (and sob haha). But we were surrounded by new wonderful friends and our trail chefs had even somehow managed to bake us a cake whilst camping in the mountains!! It was the most emotional day of my life and we haven’t stopped beaming with happiness together since!”
So on a overcast afternoon we met with Andrew and Bree in the beautiful gardens at Pomodoras, for our styled shoot. Bree looked gorgeous in her dress, and Andrew looked as proud as punch to be sharing this opportunity with Bree. This cute couple were ready and willing for Renee to snap away, capturing the natural surrounds, overcast skies and went with the flow when the heavens opened mid shoot. With the Obi Obi creek flowing behind them the feeling was very private and tranquil.
Andrew & Bree then enjoyed an amazing two course meal and champagne at Pomodoras, cooked & served by Owner Chris.
