Engagement Photos Starring Stelly Our Boston Terrier

So it’s been a while between posts here at Boston Terriers Rock.

Between getting engaged and planning a wedding, to being laid off a few weeks before Christmas it’s been pretty crazy in my neck of the woods but with my extra time I’m trying to get my own business up and running finally. It’s been a dream of mine and now that I’ve been pushed it’s time to sink or swim! I’m hoping to slot in time for more regular posting here also so let me know what you’d like to see and read about here.

Anyway, I mentioned in an earlier post that I got engaged earlier this year and we decided to get some engagement photos to capture this happy and loved up time in our lives and also to get some nice photos that aren’t just in wedding attire.

We Were Blown Away By Our Engagement Photos!

Our photographers we so much fun and really friendly. We went back and forth before the shoot discussing locations and they spoiled us with 3 different locations with one being in burnt bushland close to where we live. We started the shoot at the beach near our house as we spend a lot of time there (it’s Stelly’s favourite spot) and where we got engaged. We ended the shoot at this amazing old railway about 20 minutes from our home which is like a lost little rainforest. It was so wet there and it took me so long to walk to the tunnel because I was afraid of sinking in the muddy water or slipping – I’ve never been great a climbing but I was determined and everyone was very patient with me! It was so worth it!

Naturally, our photos wouldn’t be complete without our puppy Stelly. She was the star of the shoot and a major hit with the photographers!

I really wanted to share some of these magic photo’s with you all (the photo’s with text are from our wedding website), mostly the ones of Stelly but I’ve slipped in a few others to show you to amazing work of Lisa and Pete at And A Day Photography (like them on Facebook for more of their goodness – and we are their cover pic!). Oh and for the Aussie’s these guys are in Sydney but they like to travel! Why not get some awesome shots of your pup too?

A Picnic, A Puppy and A Supermoon

For nearly 2 years now I’ve wanted to watch the full moon rise over the beach but we always seem to forget or arrive too late but when I heard there was a Supermoon on Sunday I made sure we witnessed it.

So we packed up a little picnic and the pup and the 3 of us headed down the road to the beach to watch the Supermoon rise.

At first we kept having people come over to us wanting to see Stelly which I usually don’t mind but we were set up with a picnic and drinks having some quiet time and they didn’t really seem to get that … I guess she is irresistible though.

Eventually we were left in peace and the few other people that were there disappeared not long after the sun went down.

It was a beautiful clear afternoon and we were treated to a gorgeous sunset which was then overlapped by the spectacular rising moon.

It was breathtakingly beautiful watching the purple and orange stained sky with the moon emerging on the horizon across the ocean with the waves rolling the moons rays closer and closer to us.

It really made us appreciate just how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world and sharing it with out little puppy just topped it off.

I think the Supermoon got to Stelly a little, she’s usually quite calm but as you’ll see in the video she kept wanting to jump around near the cliff edge … by the time the sun had completely sunk behind the escarpment and the moon was in full bloom little Stelly was fast asleep to the sounds of the ocean.

Did you watch the Supermoon rise?

Share your stories and pics below! We’d love to see how people in other corners of the earth witness it.
