A day in the life of Shari and Petra, with a twist

Petra & Shari have a connection that is so visible, I wanted to photograph them after spending a little time around them at a friends wedding. I emailed Petra and asked if her and Shari would be interested in having me photograph a day in the life session, they were keen so we started organising a date. Shari contacted me and asked if it would be ok if she proposed to Petra at the end of the day. Naturally I was like Hell Yes! So we worked around the jeweller who was designing the ring and set a date that worked. It was tricky keeping it a secret from Petra and I most likely ended up looking flakey with a lot of “oh sorry can’t do that date” until we knew when the ring would be ready! Everything came together so well in the end. Shari came up with a plan to write little things they love about each other throughout the afternoon, to stop Petra from guessing something was up she asked me to pretend it was my idea. We went skating then hung out at the beach and had a sunset picnic, at the end Shari asked Petra to marry her , it was absolutely amazing and I can’t really put into words the emotion and excitement I witnessed. Hopefully the images tell the story!

Love in the Mountains

Love in the Mountains “Hush. On the edge of the woods I do not hear words which you call human; but I hear words which are newer, spoken by droplets and leaves far away. Listen. Rain falls from scattered clouds. Dancing among the pine trees, scaly and bristling, rain falls on the myrtles, Divine, rain… Continue Reading
