Hello guys! Yes I know, it’s been ages since I last made a post. Truth is, 2010 got a little too busy. I was shooting every single weekend since June/July!!
Now that 2011 is just around the corner, I thought I’d share what was the best experience in my career so far. It was Linda and Edwin’s wedding on Boxing Day and because the wedding was going to be held in the city, I thought it was going to be really tricky with crowd control.
After the traditional ceremonies were done, I decided to have their bridal party session in the city. We walked along the streets of the packed CBD and I snapped away Little did they know I was warming them up for the grand finale
As we approached the QVB, Town Hall, Woolworths intersection I explained to the bridal party we’re going to do a shoot here. Everyone was puzzled and thought I was crazy until I told them my idea LOL!
We watched the traffic for a bit and went for it. As the pedestrian lights turned green, we ran to the middle of George St, Linda and Edwin got in position and I just snapped away like a crazed photographer on drugs!
The best part of it all was during the final shot. When their lips met in the middle of George St, the hundreds, possibly thousands of onlookers and pedestrians alike erupted in a round of applause. Horns went off and whistles blown. At one point, I think time stood still as they enjoyed the moment together.
Linda and Edwin, you guys are just as crazy as I am and I thank you for that. Thank you for allowing me to realize my creative vision. I certainly will not forget this day for the rest of my life. It’s story I’ll tell my grand children one day
Without further ado, here is the George St shot taken from the same day edit wedding slideshow.
Phew, what an amazing year 2010 has been. We’ve got a lot planned for 2011 including a new blog and website so stay tuned! Hopefully that will make me blog more as I have tons and tons of photos to share!
It’s time now to go book my spot to view the fireworks tonight. Catch up with you all soon!
Happy New Year!!!
