A Rowboat Engagement | Charisse & Josh

There’s something super magical about rowing your one love down an empty stretch of river.

For a brief moment you are the only two that exist. The world around you stops and time stands still. You can hear your voice echo through the valleys, and only the trees that surround you are there to watch. Oh, and that random photographer running around at the edge of the river, sweating profusely as he tries to photograph you.

Definitely one of my most challenging, yet rewarding, afternoons – spent with Josh & Charisse as they rowed down the Hacking River. Looking forward to their wedding next weekend, which I’m told will be just as magical.

    Love them all. beautiful composition

  • Those last few shots in particular - nailed it, Jonathan! Loving those tones.

  • Great set. Love the way you have close ups of them in the boat and then follow that with a long shot. Makes the viewer think "how did he get that"
