MELBOURNE, AUTUMN 2015. What makes everyone love Melbourne? That’s a question i always keep asking myself and i have tons of answers to that question. It is the most livable city with various cultures, the old architectures across the street, beautiful cathedrals, fresh breath of air, the coffee, amazing natural light, blazing sun, vast blue sky, the trams, the love for art, lots of delicious food, overall, Melbourne really captures my heart.
Romy + Catherine are both from Surabaya, Indonesia. We only talked to them through email and whatsapp, guiding them through every step on the locations and their outfits as well. It is surprising when we met them in Melbourne, Romy was a very tall and big guy, just like a teddy bear where Cath is what we called petite girl. Thus, we came up a nickname for them. “MR XXL and MS XXS”. Everything flowed naturally and we don’t feel awkward or nervous around them. It was pretty easy to shoot Romy and Catherine because they are very co-operative during the entire photoshoot, patient, very comical and just naturally being themselves. Despite the cold weather, the harsh wind, the long drive to different locations, countless times we have to fix the messy dress due to the wind and the growling in our stomach, with all the joy and adventure, it didn’t matter anymore. We just had fun with it and happy with the results.
