Darren & Katie // The Argory // 21/11/16

First of all, I have to say I loved shooting these guys. They were one of the first couples to trust me and it’s been a joy to capture some memories of their crazy story. 

Darren & Katie initially met through mutual friends in July of 2014 while watching the World Cup, and it was here they realised they were both taking part in a mission team the following week called Livewire. The week itself ran pretty smoothly, they got on with what they had to do and enjoyed the experience of meeting new people.

Fortunately, for them, Livewire was creating a few sparks! 

Before they knew it, a friendly Snapchat turned into dinner, and dinner turned into a drive and after a summer filled with memories these two sparks connected and things just felt right.

The next year that followed wasn’t exactly boring. While Katie was teaching in Hong Kong, Darren was stuck in N.I. being one of Capper Fuel’s best salesmen. They managed to survive and fuel their relationship though talking daily and weekly Skype calls. Towards the end of her stay, Darren flew out to meet Katie and also surprised her with a few days in Dubai. Summer 2015 arrived and after a few weeks relaxing in America Darren and Katie took part in Livewire again, this time as a couple. Things were finally settling down for Darren and Katie and they enjoyed many nights of sitting in front of the fire, eating Chinese while watching Strictly.

Little did Katie know Darren would soon get down on one knee and add a new chapter to their crazy story.

Together we headed to The Argory on a very cold and dark November morning but that didn't stop us from having a good laugh. Darren and Katie are also known amongst their friends for their love of puffy coats so keep an eye out for their famous green and pink numbers!
