Take one: I stood waiting for Nat & Leo and prayed for the sky to hold up. Drip, drip, drip…it began to sprinkle. People started to roll up their picnic rugs and soon the crowds that were scattered across the park diminished. I remember saying in my head “stay people!”, for some silly reason I felt like the people were the power against the rain and if we stuck together it would pass. Of course the people left and the sky ripped apart. The engagement session was postponed.
It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and people were strolling around enjoying the last hours of their weekend. They walked by with dogs in tow, beach towels slung over their shoulders or lips glued to their ice creams. I stood on a street corner, pacing a little but never leaving the spot. I was feeling conscious as I had two cameras, each hanging off my shoulder. I must’ve looked odd and what an overkill my equipment must’ve seemed compared to the little DSLRs hanging on the necks of tourists. Eventually, Ed and Dee arrived which meant I had subjects and that meant I could comfortably look like a photographer and not a spy or paparazzi just hanging around.
I have met Ed and Dee individually before but this was the firs time I was meeting them together. Dee is a little shy and she wasn’t keen on an e-session at first and so it nearly didn’t happen, however, I really do believe in the importance of an e-session and was glad that I was able to convince her to give it a try.
These two have been together for many years and Ed often jokes that it was because he was too lazy to date someone else. He can say what he likes but what I saw through the lens tell me that it’s just a front =) Ed and Dee are seriously sooo cute together. He obviously adores her and is very affectionate with her and fortunately that made my job that much easier =)
