I’ve been looking forward to getting this engagement shoot edited for Jacqui and Jason, we actually did it quite a while ago but my editing queue has been really backed up since the busy December season. This is a two part shoot, the first was a natural and fun daytime shoot up at Midmar Dam in Howick. Weirdly this is the second engagement shoot in a row where a couple have brought a bicycle as a prop. I’d been wanting to do a fashion inspired James Bond style shoot in an underground car park for a while, so when Jacqui told me they were keen I went location scouting and made some phone calls. For the first time in years I took my studio lighting out on location and actually used it for the purpose that I bought it for, it was liberating and daunting at the same time because I don’t usually work with so many flash lights. I believe the results were worth the effort!
Jacqui & Jason are both veterinarians. Jacqui told me she grew up on a farm which is one of the reasons why she wanted a photo on a field of cows, and it’s pure coincidence that when I drove past the cows I thought the same thing. The wedding is going to be at Calderwood Hall in May which I’m really looking forward to. Thanks so much Jacqui and Jason for being so cool to work with!
