Mariam & Helmy, at dusk // Canberra & Sydney beloved photographer

I’m sure Mariam and Helmy won’t deny the fact that the afternoon leading up to our session did not quite go as planned! Not so many years ago, I would have been anxiously watching the clock in dread and fear as sunset drew nearer, wondering how I would manage to get a decent portrait collection with such a small window of light remaining. Today, it is a very different story. We started much later than planned, we had to throw pre-arranged plans out the window, there was only about 30 minutes until sunset, and not much light after that due to our location, but I excitedly lapped up the challenge. Working with couples, especially in unexpected conditions and unfamiliar surroundings allows me to step boldly into my ultimate creative zone, and I really, really, really love that.

Mariam & Helmy make me smile, big time. They were gorgeously open in front of the camera, had complete trust in me and my crazy ideas, and they’re both just lovely to be around, so we had a lot of fun and I really love these images. I’m so glad they chose me as their wedding photographer (well, technically I’m not photographing their wedding, but their orthodox engagement ceremony and reception in Canberra in September), especially since they found me via Mark & Sarah – Mariam even appears in a candid frame in that blog post, although I hadn’t met her at the time.

Enjoy this set, it was definitely a session to remember…
