In my head I wanted Elmer the robot in a forest, but driving to a forest with a 3 year old and a new baby purely to take 3 holga shots seemed like utter luxury! I quite like these anyway since they are of the moment, at our place.
I shot a few frames with my holga years ago that LOVE and I'm going to print them up nice and big for the house. When my wedding season is over I will be blogging some images of the house (in it's still unfinished state) and hopefully some more personal work. In the meantime, back to this wedding blog!
The place Jo and Paul chose for their wedding suited them to a T. It was a warm, overcast day, and Dansey's Pass Inn is situated on a long dirt road that leads through a mountain pass, so it feels snug and closed in by the surrounding hills. The wedding was simple and earthy, with lovely elegant and stylish touches. Jo and Paul were ultra relaxed with me, and gave me full license to do my thing, which felt great.
A small ceremony was followed by drinks and canapes in the Inn, a few photos up on the mountain road, and then an intimate candlelit dinner. Lots of lovely little things to photograph along the way, including children, details, rabbits and a crafty goat.
I totally fell in love with this wedding...
Lovely :) Milo is asleep so I will get on with some editing....
Yum. Feels like the end of summer to me. Autumn is pretty cool though, so I'm mostly okay with it.
Oh, and just so I can show off, here is the tasty banana loaf that Deirdre MADE for me!!!
It's all gone. About 1/3 was gone before I got home actually, running around on the beach with heavy cameras is hungry work.
This serves as a reminder for me to say - I want more confetti shots.. I've noticed a downturn in confetti at weddings and for me this is a sad thing. I love confetti and I want to encourage my clients to use it!
Also.... I wanted to say that this is like the PEAK of my wedding season this year, and I am sooper dooper busy. So if I have missed an email, or missed something... please say and I will get onto it straight away. Thanks for your patience (if that's the case, if not, thanks anyway!)
I have to try hard not to show off about this baby. His natural reaction to almost everything is to give us this huge beaming smile. When he wakes up from a nap I wander in to him and he is examining his little hands, then he sees me and his face lights up, rather like this...
Life with two small children, and a mostly-work-from-home job is quite busy. That would be an understatement actually. At this time of night (10pm) my brain almost ceases functioning completely, but I can just about manage to arrange some nice photographs of my baby. Goodnight!
