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.
Rae and Tota were married in late September at St John’s school (one of the most beautiful schools I’ve ever seen in this country!), and held their reception at the always awesome Turbine Hall in Newtown. Unfortunately we ran out of time (and light) to do the couple shoot part of the day, so Part 2 will be coming up as soon as that happens! Rae & Tota are such an incredibly photogenic couple, so I know for a fact that we are going to get some gorgeous pics and have a blast doing it!
I had such a ball on their wedding day. Rae & Tota spent the whole day alternating between fits of laughter, smiles of happiness and tears of joy, and that, of course, is perfection for photos! The bridal party were incredibly fun, having a blast at every moment, from the getting ready to the choreographed entry dance into the reception. The stunning decor was done by Jonathan from Lovely on Loveday, and I was in detail photo heaven, as I usually am with gorgeous flowers and candlebras and pretty stationery!
On with the photos (Part 1):
