On a cold and wet Saturday Courtney and Gina came to Cardiff for their couple shoot. This was early January but the plan all along had been to photograph them in the still leafy wooded part of Bute Park wearing flower crowns. But, the woodland theme had to be abandoned on the day as the rain never relented. The twinkling glitter of Christmas lights had all but gone but it was perhaps because of the lack of these seasonal adornments that I started to notice the beautifully colourful lighting all through the old shopping arcades that run along Cardiff city centre. I requested Courtney and Gina to take a walk along the arcades trying to ignore my presence. I kept my distance, never intervening and stopping whenever they would stop for an intimate moment of affection. Here are some of my personal favourite moments from the evening.
