At the end of our recent world tour we arrived in San Francisco where Chris and Michelle (same couple as below) met us with their wedding clothes! They flew over to have some extra shots taken in the streets of San Fran. We had a tame limo driver who ferried us around to the places we needed to go and waited patiently for us to do our thing. That's a darn site better than walking up and down those San Fran hills in a wedding dress.
I have avoided posting the iconic shots of street cars and signs at Fisherman's Wharf, but the lights at dusk were too much to ignore.
This is at the top of Lombard Street, the crookedest street in the world, but I am facing away from that part.
The piers and scenery at the waterfront made for beautiful backgrounds for a beautiful couple.
So I photographed Chris and Michelle's wedding last Saturday, finishing at about 9pm. Then at 7am next morning we drove for two days to get to South Australia. Then the phone calls and messages started! "When are we going to see their pics on the blog?"
In between my commitments in SA I have managed to steal a little time to keep the impatient ones off my back. I have only worked a couple of images yet so this is only a small and preliminary sample of "The Wedding of the Year".
Chris is one of those easy-going grooms who gave me as much time as I needed to produce the images, and Michelle was his perfect mate. I have rarely met a couple as well matched as these two.
Joel and Kerry were just in ordering their wedding album. Joel is the son of three times Master Photographer, Wayne Radford and I was (understandably, I think) a little apprehensive about it. Wayne sets a standard as high as anyone in the industry and this is one wedding that I had to be at my best. As It was, I need not have worried. I was given more time than usual on the wedding day to make sure that the images were spot-on! That comes from knowing how important photographs are in a family's future, and allowing enough time to capture the images. Thank you Joel and Kerry!
The following are just a few of their shots..............
A headdress with a hat always works.
Kerry's dress was a dream to photograph as you can see in this high contrast shot taken in the street.
