The everso talented Ali from Fields & Skies offered a Lovebirds giveaway at the Fair last October. Here are the adorable images from the shoot! Ali tells us, “I meet so many lovely couples at these fairs and I wanted to give something back. So what better way than a ‘Lovebirds portrait session’ (my fancy way of saying an engagement shoot). After chatting to numerous couples at the fair and dozens of entries, I thought the only fair way to choose a winner was if my one year old daughter chose the entry. I was stoked when she picked Shriv & Karlee, they were the last couple I met on the day and they were such a hoot. On the day of the shoot, we went to Cottesloe Civic Centre and down to the beach, they live locally and spend a lot of time here, so the location means something to them, which made the shoot even more special. Seriously these two were just the best fun, both have a top notch sense of humour and they clearly adore each other, one of my favourite lovebirds shoots to date.”
Karlee & Shriv had known each other for a few years from social events at work. However, it was the tri-hospital NYE party 2012 where he managed to sneak in a cheeky kiss just after midnight! It wasn’t until the next hospital party in early 2013 that he struck up the courage to ask Karlee out on a date!
Describing the proposal, Karlee said “Shriv had finished his Radiology exams & I was three weeks post a knee reconstruction. It was a cold, wet Friday evening in September 2016 & Shriv organised a delicious cheese board with cured meats & pate along with a beautiful bottle of red wine for us at home. Unbeknown to me, I assisted in ‘setting the mood’ with candles & music because I knew we couldn’t venture out due to me being on crutches. It was the perfect setting, in our home, with our fur son Finn when Shriv dropped to one knee & asked me to marry him!!! I was speechless! Of course I said yes & without a doubt he certainly managed to surprised me!”
Their big day will be at Meneghello Estate, Carbunup River (just outside of Dunsborough) for NYE 2017!!! “We thought it’d be a fabulous way to bring in the new year with our nearest & dearest. Our story started with out first kiss on NYE & this NYE we’ll seal the deal!!” said Karlee.
We cannot wait to hear all about these two lovebirds tying the knot very soon! Thank you to Ali from Fields & Skies for her very generous prize and capturing this beautiful trio.
