Occasionally I like to spend a day just driving around the Mornington Peninsula practicing my Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonations and every so often my bro Marcel Van der Horst (talented photographer by the way) invites me along to help him capture a wedding at the same time...go figure!
On this occasion in all the hustle and bustle surrounding Julie and John's little day in the sun I managed to be able to sneak around the back of the church and grab a handful of shots.
The light was just right, they were just right and as I squatted down to grab this image I whispered in my best Arnold impersonation, "If they wed, we can shoot it."
"Yeah you got that something,
I think you'll understand..."
I was tagging along with a my mate Marcel Van der Horst, a great guy and fellow wedding photographer. The sun was out, we were on the Peninsula and Erica & Ryan were getting married overlooking the water.
Now stay with me here but that was back in March last year and the one thing that always sticks with me is that as soon as they stood together and said their vows, as soon as they became husband and wife and as soon as the guests began their barrage of 'Congratulations' they could not let go.
The Beatles said it,
"When I feel that something,
I wanna hold your hand."
