Lize-Mari and Werner’s Fairy Tale Couple Session

It’s amazing that old fairy tales still have the ability to inspire and enthral us today – whether it’s in art, styled photo sessions or movies.

What is it about fairy tales that captivate us so? Today’s couple session is inspired by dreamy stories and the timing is spot on…

You see I’ve recently fallen down the rabbit hole when I started watching the series Once Upon a TimeI’m hooked. I consider myself a practical lass (most of the time) but present me with a fairy tale and I’ll willingly get lost in it. I’m trying to figure out why. It’s probably pure escapism – something to soothe me after a stressful day or when I’m just too exhausted to do anything else. I guess it’s true what Mary Margaret (Snow White) says in the series, “Stories give us hope.”

Funnily enough I heard something similar in church a week or so ago. The minister said that there has been some study that found that, rather than hitting people with scary statistics, sharing stories proved to be more successful in encouraging people to change their behaviour. It makes sense when you think about it – we’re moved by relationships and therefore, we’re moved by stories about relationships. Anyhoo, sometimes it’s just lovely to get lost in story. Enjoy…

The Inspiration

The photographer, Elaine, from Dust and Dreams Photography, said that they wanted a shoot filled with whimsy and fun, a day with endless possibilities and chose some iconic fairy tales to tell Werner and Lize-Mari’s love story. “We couldn’t resist having a bit of fun with these gorgeous bunny masks and created a rabbit’s tale.”

She said it was a little tale of enchanted forest love, reminders of lazy afternoons and soft kisses.

“We stumbled on Shakespeare’s mysterious ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ – a story of two woodlands creatures torn between the joys of love and longing” said Elaine, who added that a pinch of Dust and Dreams Photography soul, together with the gorgeous Lize-Mari and Werner , made the session magical.

Although they were not yet engaged, the magic from the photo session must have done the trick because, according to Elaine, there is now a ring on Lize-Mari’s finger and the happy couple are due to tie the knot soon. Oh how darling to to have a happy ending…or a new beginning.
