Going home to Orlando is always a special treat because I get to photograph some lovely people.
When I first met Linda, it was a photographer-to-photographer kinda thing and she said she would like me to photograph her with her husband someday.
It’s always such an honour and a pleasure when a fellow photographer wants you to photograph them. Is it the ultimate stamp of approval? I dunno, but it always makes me extra nervous and eager to please. At the end, just before we said our goodbyes, Linda dropped the bombshell that this was the first time she and Pat had been photographed since their wedding 32 years ago! Crikey I’m glad she didn’t tell me that beforehand I would have been ultra nervous – what a big responsibility!
The location is the Harry P. Leu Gardens in Orlando. An oasis in the middle of the city. Most people don’t know it’s even there. I highly recommend checking it out if you ever get the chance. Oh and check out Linda’s photography while you’re at it!
