Dingle Peninsula couple session
There is nothing we adore more than our neighbourhood, thats the Kingdom of Kerry, in the winter. It literally becomes a real life painting of incredible richness and golden light that you can walk through. I think we get far to excited about the changing textures and colours of the landscape in winter, so much so, that when we talk about them we end up inviting people to come and see for themselves! Thats what happened to Texans Meagan and Yates. We were chatting with them over Skype about their upcoming wedding in The Burren and it just happened, “Come to Kerry we would love to captured ye here in our back yard.” We squealed with glee! So, one afternoon in November some very tall and wonderful Texans arrived to our Cottage. Mr Kitty almost had them convinced to stay warm and cosy by the stove, but we won them over. As we drove into the valley, Yates was just dumbstruck by the scenery unfolding before him. “We certainly aren’t in Texas any more!” he whispered. The mist began to fall with the light and honest to goodness I thought Meagan was turning blue before the lens. We may have neglected to mention just how cold it gets in Ireland in November! Its was totally worth it though to see the smiles and squeals on their faces as we walked about, watched over by some nosey sheep. As so happens coming up to four o’clock on a winters evening, the light disappeared form the sky and we all climbed back into the defender, down the valley and into the village pub for a pint. We hooked up with Meagan’s dad who stood tall and proud in his stetson hat chatting to locals at the bar. They all howled with laugher as he shared stories from back home in Texas. We genuinely think some of them we gutted to see him leave! That is also something we love about winter in Ireland, cosy pints and chats shared in the long evenings and new friendships made.
Watch out for Meagan and Yates Burren wedding hitting the blog soon. They are legends, their images amazing. They stood in the biting cold rain for them. That however we did mention to them. For it always seems to rain in Ireland!
