Laura & Dave – Kangaroo Valley Wedding

henry paul photography

I’d like to introduce you to Laura & Dave; two incredible humans. When I look back at the photos of these two, I often find myself thinking “relationship goals”.

Throughout my interactions with these two it was clear that this wedding was a big deal. Not because of the time and money they had invested into putting on it a bangin’ party – but because this day served as a marker for their relationship.

Often people think of the wedding day as “relationship goals”, but for Laura & Dave, it was far from the most important thing. Their relationship (the kind that so many people aspire to) is about the everyday, mundane aspects of being a couple. The way Dave loves to cook exotic foods for Laura on a daily basis. And the way Laura laughs at Dave’s jokes, even if they’re a bit lame. And the way that these two share an extreme level of vulnerability and emotional compatibility.

I was struck to find out just how much of a rollercoaster their lives had been up until this day. But rather than let the shit storms of yesteryear define their relationship, I could see how they’ve used it to form an unbreakable alliance with each other. And let’s be real: that’s relationship goals.
