Captured by Keegan Cronin, Joel surprised his partner Bec with the pre-sunset shoot on her arrival home from Europe. A talented photographer in his own right, it was only natural that Joel – the man behind Barefoot & Bearded – would organise some magic his own engagement shoot.
The couple met at a café in Newcastle, where Joel was the man-bun sporting barista and by his account, had already fallen for Bec and her ‘angelic aura’ before she’d slipped him her phone number!
Newcastle’s Caves Beach was an easy choice for the shoot – it’s the couple’s fave spot on a sunny day, and a casual picnic with wine, cheese and tunes is nothing out of the ordinary. Often those who are comfortable behind the camera aren’t accustomed to being on the opposite side of the lens, but Keegan’s natural photography style suited this pair to a tee.
Bec and Joel plan to elope to the Tasmanian East Coast near Freycinet National Park for an intimate ceremony with just Joel’s dad, Bec’s mum and their one year old son as witnesses. Perfect!
