Suzannah and Rachel.

Sunday was a really rather special day for me. It marked my departure as a double fisted photographer in the sense that I now have two cameras to shoot with so that I don’t have to keep stoppping to change lens all the time. Made me feel super cool, so it did! Nice to be double fisted as well as ham fisted. It was also my first gay engagement shoot. Rachel and Suzannah are a wonderful couple. Full of love and joy and excitement for their upcoming wedding. We met at Marin Park in beautiful Fairhaven and wandered down the railway line towards Post Point.

This was also a first in another way. With every wedding couple I advise that they look on flickr or whichever is their favourite photo sharing site and to send me any images they may find that they like and to tell me what it is about these images which appeal. Is it the lighting, the colours, the composition, the expressions, the positioning of the figures? And clients NEVER do so! Until Rachel and Suzannah who supplied eight or nine great images and using these as starting points we managed to create some really wonderful shots. It pays to do your homework, people!

Thanks, Suzannah and Rachel for being such good sports and I look forward greatly to the actual wedding day at Lairmont Manor. And remember, if you book a wedding shoot with me you will ALWAYS get an engagement shoot included in the deal.

Chris and Crystal

Ahh, how I love an engagement shoot when it all goes right! Sunday was a beautiful spring morning and we met up at Whatcom Falls Park and Chris and Crystal are a handsome couple and although they were nervous to begin with that all soon fell away and they got really into the spirit of the day. Things went much more easily and I had a fine idea of what they wanted because they had done their homework and sent me a link to a flickr gallery full of shots they had found there which inspired them. If you’re interested in their pics you can see them here.

We enjoyed the sun and each others company and had a lovely time. and here are a few images to prove it!

In case you’re interested in seeing all the Worked On images from this shoot you can do so by going over to flickr here.
