On a hot summer’s afternoon, I met Viv and Vaughan to do their engagement shoot. They brought along the ‘other woman’ in their relation, Mercedes, an adorable Bichon Frise, who, I understand, is the reason they are together. Vaughan had been invited to dinner, with some friends he’d met through dog walking. The decision to go turned out to be life changing, as this is where their paths crossed. The rest, as they say, is history and their paths will be permanently joined when they marry in Toorak, Victoria, in March of this year. Everything tells me their wedding will be as fabulous as them.
Yes, I did want to run off with her while their backs were turned but I know, deep down, I couldn’t offer her the ride she’s used to. On hot summer days, Mercedes isn’t true to her name. She enjoys nothing more than the wind rushing through her fur as she cruises around town in a convertible Porsche Cayenne. I just can’t compete.

I read this quote while I was processing these photographs and it felt, like Viv & Vaughan, just right.
