I had the great honour of photographing the very happy occassion of Alisha’s and Samir’s engagement ceremony this past Sunday in East London. Samir was not only the lucky groom, but also a close friend and colleague with whom I have been photographing for almost six years. He’s a fantastic East London wedding photographer as well, so the pressure was on to pull off a few crackers up to standard for him. For me the most surprising bit of the day was actually how shy Sam was in front of a camera when I wouldn’t let him do any Austin Powers groovy moves in his portraits. Alisha, of course, was stunning and a dream bride – beaming with happiness and an incredible glow (well, and a little back lighting!)
There’s lots more to follow, but I’m off to Amsterdam in the morning with two babies (also in attendence at the momentous occassion), so I will just post these three shots for now.
