Thomas + Danielle | A Proposal in Durham, North Carolina

Last week – while in North Carolina to shoot a wedding (much more on that very soon) – my handsome She Takes Pictures He Makes Films sidekick Alastair and I were having a sunset drink atop the Durham Hotel, when a man approached us:

‘Hey guys, sorry to bother you, but my buddy’s about to arrive with his girl… he’s proposing to her tonight, and was hoping to use this spot – would you guys mind moving to a different table for him?’

‘Of course! How exciting…

…does he have someone to shoot it?!’

Minutes later, we were honoured (and lucky!) to have the chance to document the moment Thomas and Danielle put a ring on it. What a moment it was.

To Thomas + Danielle: Massive congratulations, you two! We’re stoked to have been there to capture it all x

See bottom of the post for a little film by Alastair, featuring a soundtrack by Analog Colours.

Spain on Film

Alastair and I recently returned from a road trip through Spain (after shooting a spectacular wedding in Portugal – coming soon to the blog).  In what turned out to be the best decision I’ve made in a long time, I borrowed a Yashica Mat 124G from my friend Jason Lau, filled my bag with Kodak Tri-X and Ilford HP5 film, and set off to document our adventure the old fashioned way. I only wonder why it took me this long to rekindle my love of the analogue process.

Back at Photography school I shot film almost exclusively, but for the last 6 years I’ve worked only with digital. Getting back to this shooting style is like blissful photo-therapy; a chance to slow down, look, think, and make careful decisions at a steady pace.

Limited fine art prints available for purchase – contact me for a price list.
