I was driving home on Friday after spending the morning unsuccessfully keeping out of the rain with Nathan and Amy. I was pretty much soaked to the bone. I’d quickly towelled off my cameras and both the cameras and I were enjoying the warmth of  heated seats in the car. As I drove home, I thought how lucky I was to be creating work which attracted clients like Nathan and Amy. Though we had endured some of the most unrelenting rain that Melbourne has copped this winter, they were totally undaunted, up for anything and almost oblivious to the conditions. We made our way through Chinatown, and the world passed by us beneath a sea of umbrellas. “How do you feel about running through the streets?”  I asked over the din of increasingly heavy rain assulting the old tin awnings. Nathan and Amy both smiled and said “Just tell us where to start…”

 

 

I’m always a little on edge when I have an Engagement shoot scheduled during Winter. I mean Winter is actually a great time to shoot Engagements as most people will get married in the Spring or Summer, so the whole Winter look is a nice counterpoint to those Wedding portraits that come later on. But Winter being what it is, postponements and rescheduling are always on the cards. So it was with some relief that I set out for Black Rock last Sunday beneath a beautiful clear sky and with the sun on my back to shoot Charles and Aisha’s E Session. It’s always a great opportunity for me to gauge how comfortable a couple is not only in front of the camera, but also with each other. And it’s a great chance for them to shake off any preconceived ideas about wedding photographers! Charles and Aisha were so relaxed, the whole afternoon just ran so smoothly, and let’s face it ; if you can make Fish ‘n Chips and Champagne work, then you’re already ahead of the game!
