So this instalment of the Girls x Boys series is of Rey (my cousin) and Ruby (my cousin-in-law BOOYAH!). This mini shoot was my first foray in engagement photography (pressure was on). I'm not going to lie, it was hard and a great learning curve. As I said before my weakness is 'model'/people direction. I tend just to snap away, but I'm learning to ease in normal conversation with a few jokes to make everyone comfortable and for the images look more natural.
These pictures may have been posted a little too late, as the wedding was last Saturday. It was an awesome day to say the least- it went by too quickly! Ruby looked amazing, think Audrey Hepburn classic chic. They married at Rey and my childhood parish, we had our first Reconciliation, Confirmation and Holy Communion rites at that church, so it was lovely to see Rey and Ruby wed there. The reception was so much fun, a lot of drinks were had and copious amounts of dancing too. The speeches were tear jerkers- my sister and cousins were crying their eyes out. It was lovely to see our two families come together and as Ruby's father aptly said "Our names match Diamante- Cruz, which translates to Diamond Cross".
I really do believe Ruby and Rey belong together. He had a crush on her during high school- he used to stalk her. haha. And I remember on one of our clubbing nights during our university days... Rey mentioned Ruby while we were in the car on the way to the club he said "If she is there it's fate man, it's fate".
