Archive for March, 2010
Kate and Rupert were married in February, and they opted to use their engagement shoot as a Day-After-Trash-The-Dress session instead. Because we had very little time for portraits on the wedding day, we started at their venue, Turbine Hall, and did some more shots there, and then moved on to the streets of Newtown. Oh, graffiti and grunge, how I love you.
Rupert and Kate were married on the 20th of February, and we did this shoot on the 20th of March, so when I saw the numbered parking bays I made them lie down in number 20. Nothing like a bit of special meaning in a parking lot
Laura is Australian, Gustav is South African, and they met in the UK. After conducting a long-distance relationship, they’re finally getting married in Australia later this year. That, unfortunately, means that I don’t get to photograph it, but I know it’s going to be fabulous. And at least I got to photograph their just-as-fabulous engagement session! Laura found me on Rock ‘n Roll Bride, and contacted me a few months ago about doing their e-shoot. They decided on a fun session on the street where they live, and also wanted to incorporate the travel aspect of their relationship, so they brought along some globes, a world map, vintage suitcases, and more lovenotes and cards than I have ever seen in my life. I love props! And I love these two.
The rain also showed up for a bit, and then cleared up beautifully. Very obliging.
