Sarah & Jordan's Engagement Shoot by Dean Raphael

Sarah & Jordan have booked me to shoot their wedding in the Gold Coast Hinterland later this year. To get things started, we met on the property of Sarah's parents, which is located in the hills behind Bangalow, near Byron Bay. 

It was one of those typical Northern NSW summer days (except it was Autumn)... You know, 38 degrees and a slight chance of maximum humidity. As expected, while we were shooting in the afternoon a beautiful storm rolled over the hills which created a dramatic backdrop and some elegant lighting for the two lovebirds.

Following Sarah & Jordan around for a couple of hours gave me a lot of photos to play with, so naturally as a gift to the couple I mashed the photos up into an animated time lapse, just a cute little video to coincide with their documentary of the day.
