Adelaide Engagement {James + Ella} South Australia…

I honestly don’t know where to begin with these two…
James has been one of my best friends for years. A few years ago, I lost my job; that was the real beginning of ‘Tomek Photography’ but a lot of it was due to the help of this man. I flew to Adelaide, he picked me up at the airport and we drove a car + trailer back to Melbourne to pack my stuff and return home. We had so much fun together, catching up on old times, talking about the future but something had changed in James. He had an even greater smile than I had remembered and it all revolved around a girl called Ella. Every time he would speak of her, his eyes would light up…it’s a beautiful thing to be in the presence of love, especially when it’s in the presence of someone you care deeply for.
We arrived back in Adelaide a few days later and I for the first time met Ella and I knew… I knew it was only a matter of time. A couple of years later, these two adorable cats are engaged. They have purchased a beautiful piece of land in Second Valley and the rest is simply a love story of epic proportions.
Two days ago, they both left for a vacation in Europe and you know what? I genuinely miss them already. Looking through these photos I am blessed to have a smile that has warmed my day, I honestly can’t get enough of these images…
We started their engagement session in Kuitpo Forest, ventured over to their amazing block of land and ended the day at Rapid Bay. Honestly people, this is what dreams are made of…
I love you both so much and am praying you are having a wonderful time in Europe. Come home soon, so we can begin planning the wedding of 2014.

Here is what happened on the 25th of May ~
