I’ve known Ash for some time now…we met “officially” around this time last year, but we were friends on Facebook before then. Timing meant I wasn’t available to shoot Ash and Ryan’s wedding, which was a real shame…but they were married late last year in a beautiful and emotion-filled day. Wish I could have been there!
Anyway, fast-forward to January 2011, where we decided to venture out in the Southern Vales to have some fun with photos. Ash had ideas of exactly what she wanted to do – forest, vineyard and beach – although she wasn’t 100% sure about “trashing the dress” as such!
It was a hot, HOT day. 60 degrees or something? No, it was actually about 42 degrees, but it could have been 60 by the time we got into the forest and felt the humidity closing in on us. The beach was great solace from the heat – Ash and Ryan had a lot of fun in the water (even if both Ash and Ryan – and me, nearly! – got knocked over by the crazy waves!)
I had a lot of fun at this shoot – it was really a chance to capture Ash and Ryan’s sweet and kind personalities and their lovely dynamic together. Thanks to both of you for having me along!
