When September arrived, the time to attend first high school classes came as well. There were a lot of girls among first grade students that the elderly students noticed right away. But Gorazd hadn’t just noticed her, he fell in love. He fell in love with Judita seeing her stroll down the hallways. Her blue eyes and a radiant smile brought a wish; a wish to be her man, the one that holds her hand, kisses her, embraces her. With such a strong wish he had no other choice but to try and get her number and ask her out. He went to speak to her brother, ask him for her phone number, and then wrote an honest message. It was as much an invitation as a declaration. Judita, although at first a bit reserved, agreed to go out on a date with him. And Gorazd planned it so perfectly, meeting her at the lake of Kočevje (he knew it then already :)) and giving her a yellow flower, that their story began then and there. And it still lasts. And very soon they will declare their eternal love for each other on exact same spot.
They chose the lake of Kočevje to be their venue of the engagement photo shoot as well. There we walked, talked about the wedding, searched for the best morning light. It was a beautiful morning stroll that ended with us rollerblading which was so much fun indeed. And I just love it when couples bring something of their own to diversify the photo shoot. I find it very exciting. It is such a pleasure working and taking photos when it is obvious that the couples themselves wish for the shoot to be really “theirs”.
They also changed their clothes which I absolutely love and believe is great because it allowed us to get a variety of amazing portraits in just about an hour. The morning colors were beautiful, from the washed-out to the warmer one. And I adore every single shade :).
I absolutely love the last two photographs because they capture exactly what love is made of; a wish, a longing for love, the eternal promise, and fidelity. Oooh, love! :) If you wish to see more, click on the slideshow or here for a larger format. I wish you all a very lovely day :).
