I love a great photography story. Chris and Jeremy were such fun to shoot. They had recently moved up from Melbourne to Balmain in Sydney. Not far from my photography studio in Rozelle. And they love it here. I think it's the weather! I love this couple portrait shoot because the boys are just so relaxed. Photographing a committed gay couple was just like any other portrait shoot. Whenever possible I like to meet my couples before the photography session to get to know them better, in doing so they feel more relaxed around me as well. Which then helps create more natural and intimate moments between the couple during the portrait shoot.
They love food and wine and their new hometown, so we wanted to incorporate that feeling into their portraits. The photography locations were at The Lodge Bar where they are often seen on weekends, Darling Street Balmain, Emile's Fruit & Vegetables and their lovely terrace house. We wanted to capture natural images of the guys at locations that had sentimental meaning for them. You can tell in the photographs how relaxed they are and how much fun they had doing the portrait shoot.
