A 'rainchecked' engagement shoot with a breath of fresh air.
On an afternoon where thunderstorms threaten the coast all week in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, the trip north from Sydney for Beth and Kevin was the beginning of a beautiful night out on the town.
Although not ideal weather conditions for what many couples would hope to have on their planned, personal e-shoot, I assured my couple that the only thing on a wedding you can't control, is the weather - and that evening's like this...are so unique.
Embracing the weather on your day is the only way to overcome the worries in your mind. And for something you can't control, you may as well put aside, and think...'will he love my dress when he first see's me walking down that garden isle?..."
Falling skies and smokey-style looking clouds turned out fantastic in camera, and this is what I believe truely makes my couples shoot's so, so unique.
Industrial settings of a simplistic, sleepy Carrington seen below are also a beautiful contrast to the planned wedding set by Beth and Kevin in the Hunter Valley this coming weekend.
Although these surroundings are no reflection to their relationship, the back streets offered up amazing colour and fun opportunity in front of camera. Be different, be bold, and let the environment shape your shoot. Within 15 minutes I knew these two were going to be great - and once again...I was right.
Sensing nerves in the beginning (like the other 92.73% of all couples meeting me for their e-shoot) allowed me to give them 'breathing space' - an extremely important thing to pick up on as their photographer, as it steers the path for the rest of the shoot, and their wedding day.
Bring on Friday and their celebrations ahead - these two will be wonderful going off the images taken here.
