From the minute I awoke until the final frame of the shoot it was touch ‘n go. The forecast said ‘nothing but rain’ and the view from my window concurred. Never a good sign, but we had an hour at the Auburn Botanic Gardens and a rain check was not an option. I called up Kathrina and we decided to go for it, hoping luck would be on our side. Thankfully it was, and then some.
This was a place I’ve never shot before, and my expectations were blown from the get-go. I arrived early, and the tranquility of walking around the Japanese gardens in the early morning, after a storm, was an incredible feeling in and of itself. There aren’t many black and white photos below because the colours were just too good. As for Kat and Dean? It might sound cliché to say that working with these two couldn’t be considered ‘work’ at all, but here it’s an honest sentiment because that’s the kind of couple that they are. Madly in love and not afraid to show it from the start, these two were unreal to be around.
