Last year Jenna and I were hired to photograph the TD Pump It Up concert in Victoria’s Market Square. In true Victoria fashion, people lined up in the pouring rain as ponchos were passed around to excited fans. All the discomfort of the wet evening evaporated with three energy filled performances from Keys n Krates, Ok Go and Metric. Ears still ringing, we ended our night over fresh sushi and warm saki, soaked in happiness and rain from head to toe.
Melt my heart.
Jenna and I are happy to have six winning photos in the latest Fearless Photographers awards. One image is from Tim and Karen’s wedding and five are from weddings we haven’t had the chance to blog yet. Our genuine thanks to the curators of round five, and congratulations to our talented friends and peers who also made the cut!
Not long ago Sam and Winnie flew here from Hong Kong armed with dresses and suits, for an engagement session around Victoria. The four of us spent the late afternoon photographing as the sun set spilling over our city. Here are our favourites from our short and lovely time together.
For our beauties Christian and Evelyn, just in case you’re watching : )
When I was a kid I used to spend hours daydreaming underwater.
We spent all of our summers at the cottage on the lake, where I took breaks from swimming only to read. Not unlike myself, Tristan spent his summers life-guarding and sailing with his family. So naturally when we first started traveling together, we spent the hours of our off days in the ocean. It’s probably obvious that the rest of our time is spent happily behind cameras, whether working or not. Recently in Waikiki we found pleasure in both swimming and photographing, simultaneously. We were in Oahu for Sara and Craig’s wedding, a sweet couple also from here on the island. We spend our days leading up to their wedding photographing the various events and activities, which included a day of surf rentals and wave chasing with their friends. After hours of swimming and an inevitable sunburn, we left with this series from the day.
