On a sunny, breezy, but not too cold day in February, I met with Tanya & Alex at one of Adelaide’s southern beaches. The location was perfect: Dunes, expanses of flat sand, and of course, the only water South Australia has in plentiful supply!
‘It’s OK,’ said Tanya, ‘I just want this shoot to be completely different to the wedding…’.
It was different alright. Instead of the city centre and the botanic gardens, we were at the beach in bare feet. We took it easy on the dress (which had been dry-cleaned and mended!!) to start with. Then, after some shots in and on the sand, into the drink they went.
The Southern ocean is not a warm one. Tanya & Alex were suffering for art here. They were great sports, and enjoyed the shoot – icy water and all!
