I am so excited to share this absolutely stunning Beloved session from Samuel Goh Photography with you today. I think these gorgeous smiles and rays of sunshine are just what we need to end our week and kickstart our weekend. Don’t you agree?
From the photographer:
‘A tiny idea has been formulating in my mind, a heartfelt inspiration as I chanced upon love in my life again, and that in itself has dramatically changed the way I photograph relationships and the stories I create. As I’ve realised, my sense of gratitude comes not only in the form of photographs, but when I can play a small part in creating beautiful moments between two people in love. Whenever my couples walk away from the session holding hands, or look into each others eyes more dearly, it does make my heart smile and what I do a little more worthwhile.
We did the session in the early summer of Australia, Perth, among the Jacaranda trees that Susan so dearly loved. I believe that the love and emotions they shared with me that very day formed the core of the story, whilst the beautiful sunset and warm summer weather came together to make it wholesome.’
From the couple:
‘Hendrick and Susan met accidently over the phone! Susan worked as a pharmacist and Hendrick worked as a doctor in the same hospital.
Hendrick was actually doing a favor for one of his colleagues at the time and needed to amend a script and hence rang the pharmacy. He asked Susan if he could come to the pharmacy, Susan gave him directions to the pharmacy, where they met for the very first time and the rest is history….
Susan loves the jacaranda trees, which only bloom for one month in November. Her favorite color is the purple shade of these trees. So they wanted to do the shoot in a place full of jacaranda trees, Hyde Park in Perth. And to reflect who they are as a couple, romantic and happy and they also incorporated colorful balloons.
“Sharing the laughter and emotion and knowing that all of it would be captured on camera by our talented wedding photographer to be relived every time was an amazing feeling.”’
