. . . was to shoot pre-ceremony shots for my brother’s wedding, in 45 minutes flat, at a venue I’d never laid eyes on before (the Sebel in Melbourne – formerly the old Treasury building so fortunately quite photogenic!), in typical stormy Melbourne weather … and to create images with ‘an edge’ rather than ‘sweet and flowery’. I was so nervous I actually dug out the vacuum and cleaned Steve and Mae’s house prior to the shoot just to use up spare adrenaline!!
Here’s a start I’ve made on the 120 shots taken – am struggling with making the end result ‘different’ so any constructive suggestions would be welcome.
Brother Steve is a professional sound technician – Mae (Parker) makes up one third of the Vanilla Supremes (“from Motown to Funky Town”!!) and performs solo as well. As you can imagine, the after-party was something else!
Ourdoors was so dull I even tried flash!

Hmmm – a little of the mushy stuff …
A traditional toast.
