Renae & Jess were married on a beautiful overcast fall day and to make their photos extra special and unique, they brought a canoe out to the lake that they were getting married! We had so much fun trying to get this shot and the mood and lighting was fantastic! Just like something out of a romance novel.
Arisha and Jason are getting married this year and I am so honored to be their photographer! We went out to do a little engagement session downtown and were near our city's outdoor skating rink. They always keep a bonfire going in the evening, so with a little help from Jason we got the fire going enough to get this warm and cozy shot of them staying warm together.
Shot at Buxted Park Hotel Inn Sussex. I used the already existing fairy lights in a corridor, turned off the lights and silhouetted the couple against my LED video light. Then used a small glass mirror ball to reflect the lights on the left. In Photoshop created a dual layer and flipped the image, erasing certain parts.
Havana is like stepping back in to the 19th Century and where the it hasn't quite caught up to the 21st. With its decorative architecture, weathered patina colors, marbled entrances, it was our inspiration for this image. Carla lit by candle light, is seated on one for the many marble staircases found throughout Havana. Image taken with my Pentax 645n with Fuji 400h film.
When this amazing couple told us they wanted their engagement session at the Lincoln Memorial on a sunny Saturday, and also that they want big structural shots, we knew we were going to face some challenges. Living in the Washington DC area for over 20 years we know its a popular tourist site, meaning there's always a million and one people at the site especially on weekends. Also that there are a million and one pictures of people who have captured the memorial in every way possible. Nonetheless we accepted the challenge and immediately started brainstorming, but when the day arrived, as anticipated, it was jam packed with people. We knew immediately that we wanted to capture them in a way that made it seem as though they had the entire Lincoln memorial to themselves that day. Which thankfully, the extremely large pillars helped us achieve this by hiding the multitude of people who constantly walked in and out of our shots. Either way, we had such a fun with this couple that day and enjoyed being their storytellers.

The shoot was over, as the sun disappeared behind clouds and we decided to call it a day, heading back to parking. Suddenly, when we were passing by this area (where we already been shooting an hour before) the real magic started to happen, as the sun appeared for few more seconds, before finally setting for good.
