As creatives we spend so much time in our head with our art. This session was manifested in my head long before I even met Tilly + Jake. In fact, yesterday I found my old Journal whilst cleaning out my office of when I first dreamt up THESE WILD SOULS. This book contained everything I wanted my brand to be, vibes, colours, experiences, sessions, right down to the kind of couples I wanted to attract. Circled under ‘Dream Sessions’ in big black biro was ….. ’80’s movie vibe motorcycle across the beach’……. some things were always meant to be.
Some things are meant to be. You could say the same for Tilly + Jake. Both with a passion for motorcycles, tattoos, surfing, and the beach playing such a huge part of their life. I’ve always said certain souls are just drawn together, that’s just how it is, and its beautiful.
After what has been a super challenging time for the entire world I think a lot of people have lost focus of themselves through a love for others and their children. We just want those closest to us safe right now. I really wanted this experience to be just about Tilly + Jake, for them to be fully present in the moment, in each other, and to have this moment just for themselves.
Cue a beach that had grown just about deserted, a beautiful sunset, the most insane motorcycle, some cold beers, and a genuine evening of real moments and connection. It was surreal to see something I had visioned and planned in my head for over two year manifest in front of my eyes. But ultimately, all this was ever about was Tilly + Jake, their memories. I don’t need to go into detail but the message they sent after the session brought it all home why I do this. Close off the night with a beach fire, some great company, a handful of dogs and a feeling returned of just why I love this so much.
Tilly , Jake, thanks for allowing me into your life, welcome to The Wild Souls Tribe xx
