I recently had access to a small, private chapel in the Dandenong Ranges for a few hours. We arranged two shoots in one day, both were alternative themed wedding shoots, of a sort. The first one I an sharing was with Hunter Hart (Jayde Masteron) & Erika Hansson. Hunter Hart is a Drag King (and quite talented), Erika is a Swedish Circus performer. Gothic/Steampunk seemed to be required for this rather alternative wedding. This was not a real wedding, although Hunter (Jayde) is affianced to her partner Kesney, such lovely, but very shy girl. Erika…I believe is happily single, but not 100% sure. 🙂 BOTH were happy to ham it up in front of our cameras!
Anyway, it was all good fun and good-natured and very much tongue in cheek. I have only ever shot one real wedding and swore I would never do another. This wedding, however, had none of the stress, or fuss and no crowds and wannabe photographers getting in the way. I just had to contend with Moth and my friend Sue and my old Nikon camera…as I still hadn’t gotten my new one at this stage. We did spend more time laughing than anything else.
