Sometimes love gets a second chance.
At least, I like to think so. In a world where everything is temporal, and few things last the test of time, it is somewhat God given and a miracle when two people are brought together again.
Nadia and Sam were two hearts that found each other in their younger years, in the days where school uniforms ruled, and curfews were a norm. She was the sweet, innocent, and fresh faced girl, and he was the bad boy on the block - complete polar opposites to one another, but like all proverbial love stories, their differences drew them together, and they held on as all dear first loves do. They held on...at least until life decided they both needed serious doses of growing up, and shaping of the soul. It was then that their ropes unwound and their love said goodbye.
Over the years as the orbit of life brought them across to different places and different people, Nadia and Sam despite their separate paths, always remained close, keeping as each other's best friends until a realization one day that even though their love had said goodbye all those years ago, it had never really disappeared. Rather, it sat there patiently on the shelf, waiting for the day that it was time. Where they had learnt their life lessons, grown up, and were better ready for each other. Better ready to love one another.
Sometimes love get's a second chance.
.....and I think that is what makes them beautiful. They are each other's best friends. And lovers. I could see that in every frame, the way they talked to each other, they way they laughed with and at each other, and the way that they smiled to each other.
Thank you Nadia, and Sam for sharing a snippet of your lives with me. It was an honor :) You two are the luckiest.
Enjoy some of my favourites from their sweet engagement shoot in the beautiful city of London - I LOVED the city and will definitely be back with the husband :)
