This is probably the most overdue photoshoot in the history of ever. It’s certainly the most belated one I’ve ever done! Leandre and Erich are the cute couple in my blog header with their reflection in the giant puddle of water, with Leandre wearing my cute black and white gumboots. Their wedding was in April 2010, which is when that picture was taken. Prior to that, they were supposed to have an engagement shoot done. Well…we tried. That late March/early April period was one of the rainiest times I can remember as a photographer, and we had to postpone their shoot not once, not twice, but three times. Eventually it got too close to the wedding, and they decided to do a “day-after” shoot instead. Great, no problem. Except then it rained again, and then it was winter, and then real life took over and we couldn’t find a weekend we could all manage…finally we set a date for May this year, and when I left my house the weather was fine, and as I arrived at Leandre and Erich’s, BAM! – torrential downpour. The rain just loves these two. So eventually we got around to reorganising, and we shot on a Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago. The stormclouds threatened, but we prevailed and got the shots. Half an hour after I got home, the storm hit. Craziness.
Anyway…here is the long overdue engagement AKA 18-month-anniversary shoot of Mr and Mrs Ehlers.
