Day +480: Dave & Ingrid

I had the privilege of photographing this couple a few weeks ago. Dave & Ingrid are getting married in Jakarta, and wanted some photos of the city they now come home to show to their family and friends. It was windy, and it was freezing but these guys were rock stars! We went everywhere, and […]
