Occasionally, this little old family photographer shoots weddings. A few weeks ago Terri and Jason got dolled up and hitched in Canberra, surrounded by their nearest and dearest. Unfortunately the rain started to fall just moments before the beautiful bride was due to arrive. So all the chairs set up by the lake were carried to a shielded area at the National Gallery. This did nothing to dampen their spirits or spoil the day. They were two of the happiest people I have seen.
After the ceremony, we spent an hour dodging rain and running from dry spot to dry spot, with lots of yummy fun shooting in between. Dani Mezza was a fabulously helpful assistant and lots of fun too. Not only did she hold an umbrella over my head, shoot and keep her eye on all the little details, but she took care of all the family shots as well. A super star!
There is something I realise about wedding photographers — they really do get the best of the bride and groom on that day. To share all those intimate moments of excitement, love, the quiet and calm away from their adoring family and friends — what a true gift for the photographer.
Terri and Jason, it was such a pleasure to photograph your beautiful smiley faces. Much love friends xo
