…pre-wedding photo shoot and the “poo-couple”. (story to come)
Tomorrow is the wedding of Bec & Selwin and I have to say, I can’t wait for it. I’m so excited in fact, that I wanted to put up a few of the photos we got earlier in the week. Both of them were in the bridal party of a wedding I photographed a couple of seasons ago, and they were a blast on the day. When they rang to come and see me I was so happy. There is a song I love that talks about “smiling happy people” and these two definitely qualify. I was pretty tired on Monday from being on my feet all day on Sunday at the Expo so I wasn’t my usual bouncy self, but it’s impossible to not have fun and find a second wind with this gorgeous couple.
We wandered around Perth to find a couple of alleyways that we liked and had the most casual session, it was great. We’re going to hit some of the same spots tomorrow for some fun. Bec wants some rain, and I’m not liking her chances, so we’ve threatened to bring some squirtguns so she has some showers on the day! ;)
I have to tell a story on why this couple will forever be known as the poo-couple. Trust me, it’s a term of endearment. As we finished up on Monday with the photos we were standing along the street chatting about the details of the wedding day. From the corner of my eye I noticed a bird flying past me performing a hard bank to the left just about head height. About the point that it was 15 or so feet in front of me and veering out of sight I felt a slight slap to the nape of my neck. I couldn’t believe it… I immediately knew that I’d been hit by bird poo, and sure enough there was a blob of slimy poo on the back of my neck. The precision of the “bombing” was enviable, especially considering the sharp banking it was manoeuvring at the time of discharge!
I have this image of a group of birds sitting together taking bets on who can dive-bomb and hit the silly photographer, and then cracking up when they see it smack into the back of my head. I picture feathers flying, maybe even one bird laughing so hard that it’s hanging upside down with sides splitting. My only concern is… we’re shooting there again tomorrow. I’m going to check if the bullseye is still on the back of my head before we head out, I might even go and get my hair cut just to be sure! ;)
Guys… I can’t wait for tomorrow and I know it’s going to be an amazing day, even if it doesn’t rain! ;)
Huge hugs for your wedding!
Have a great night guys, tomorrow will be awesome!
