I bought a cheap umbrella and turned on the radio - Sydney was flooding the news report announced. This was readily verified by the high speed rotations of my windscreen wipers and the water gushing up the gutters and over the path outside the car. My car started, which I’m always thankful for (despite it being a newish kind of car I’m always paranoid that I’m going to be stranded somewhere unable to get to my clients Wedding). And I drove up from the Northern Beaches towards Chatswood. As I did the rain started to soften.
At the church we talked about the weather a bit and Carlos joked he’d be the guy running around in a wetsuit. But it was clearing up out there and besides, the church felt pretty water tight. It was a beautiful church. It was lit with chandeliers and was covered with artwork. It’s rare that as a Photographer I’m particularly excited about the visual creative opportunities inside churches, but this Armenian Apostolic church was an exception. And the ceremony was great to see unfold.
Mel and Carlito met me in Balmain for some photographs, and (of course) the rain had stopped, and the light was great. We cruised around this parkland near the water, and as they do, the photographic opportunities presented themselves as easily as my happily married clients smiled and embraced each other. It always feels so special for me to experience these intimate moments with my clients.
At Casa Porteno, we all got down to doing our thing, me taking photographs, and everyone else enjoying an awesome restaurant and great space to celebrate. The Argentinian BBQ was amazing. It was so nice to see everyone getting along like one big extended family. Smiles and conversations everywhere!.
My warmest congratulations to Mel and Carlito. I couldn’t be happier for you!
