Congrats to our Dream Love Shoot Winners!!

We had thousands of votes and it was a close race with the top two couples only a hundred votes apart, but congrats go to Caitlin + Simon! Caroline Tran and I will be in touch with you to plan a time for the session and brainstorm more ideas. We can’t wait to help bring your story to life! Thanks again to everyone who entered, we really wish we could work with you all!

Caitlin + Simon
My dream photo shoot would focus on the activities we both enjoy that have kept our relationship strong and have outweighed the obstacles. Primarily surfing and sailing. Ideally, I would love a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang-style beach picnic with a classic bathing tent, classy longboards and/or a classic Chris Craft motor launch (I’m flexible, a picture would suffice). Chitty Chitty Bang Bang doesn’t hold significant meaning to us, but we both often find ourselves with the song stuck in our head!! (read more about their story and the other finalists here)
