R has been a dear friend of mine for many years. So when I got an sms to ask whether I’ll be available to photograph his wedding, well, the answer was easy. In fact, I cut my vacation in half to come back and shoot his wedding, before returning to my holiday.
The day was hot, being middle of summer outside Wellington, but the heat did not keep us from having a great time. Harsh sunlight is a challenge, and vineyards in the middle of the day is not as pretty as one would imagine, but lo, there is always a way to make things work. If light gives you lemons, make lemonade, as the saying goes.
Apart from being attractive people, the two really worked nicely with me to get some lekker creative imagery. R, the groom, especially set a high bar for grooms to follow. It helps if someone is just that little bit more trusting of your skills!
