Sweetheart Session - Monique and Peter

Everyone remembers how they meet 'the one'. I love hearing these stories. They are always different, special, and extremely vivid.

With Monique and Pete, it's no different. Pete saw Monique and thought she was cute (I'd have to agree on that). Then he heard her sing. 'It was amazing,' he remembers, and knew he had to talk to her. He knew he had to meet this girl. 'I think I went up and said something like "you're a good singer".'

And that was way back when Monique was just 15. She's still a fantastic singer, still very cute, and now very much in love with the shy guy who complimented her on her voice.

I'm not able to photograph Pete and Monique's wedding, but these guys still wanted to have a Sweetheart Session. I'm so glad they did, because we had a blast. From romping on the basketball court, to enjoying dusk on the beach, all of it was wonderful.

Monique's got this way about her. This way that makes you melt.

Kissing behind the shelter sheds at school. Love it!

All these shots were taken down in Queenscliff. I searched and searched for the perfect basketball court. I struck absolute gold when I found one that overlooked Swan Bay.

Pete's absolutely great fun, and I can see why Monique is drawn to him. He doesn't take himself to seriously, but at the same time is genuine, warm and insightful.

Then on to the beach. Ahhh, the beach. Never ceases to make me feel alive (as trite as that sounds).

I think has got to be my favourite shot. Love love love. The way she's peeking out, her hair, just perfect.

Monique and Pete are blissfully in love. It was apparent in everything they did. It was wonderful to watch two people so happy, so relaxed, so themselves.

They say that when you find 'the one' that it's like finding the other half of yourself. That's definitely the case for Monique and Pete.
