Russel phoned me about a week ago asking if I would do a couple shoot for him and his girlfriend. It was a surprise birthday present for Vicky – so at 4:30 on Sunday afternoon I met Russel and Vicky at Delta Park – all Vicky had been told was that she must look pretty and she might get wet. When she met me she still had no idea what was going on until I told her that I was a photographer and we were doing a couple shoot. The smile that instantly appeared on her face was priceless – she was so excited!
We managed to get some shots while it was still dry and then it started raining. It took a lot of persuading to get these two to use the umbrella they just wanted to run around in the rain and get wet. I hardly to do much posing with them, they were giggling and laughing through the whole photoshoot – it was such a pleasure working with two people who are so in love and incredibly happy.
It was a great afternoon – I did not think I would but I loved photographing in the rain!
Happy Birthday Vicky!!!
