I’m going to level with you guys. When I first met Fabiola and Abasi, I had some concerns that Abasi might be one of those grooms who’s just “along for the ride” and totally disinterested in the photography. Now, when I meet with prospective clients, the “interview” sort of goes both ways. I want to make sure I am dealing with an enthusiastic couple who is not afraid of a little PDA, and that we are all a good fit. I figured Abasi might have been tired from a long day of work, a long drive over to meet with me, maybe just a bad day, whatever, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt. I’m SO glad I did, Abasi was like a spark of raw energy and emotion on their wedding day, and just SUCH a pleasure to work with. Just as Fabiola was too of course! To be honest with you, after leaving their wedding, I was kind of scratching my head and thinking, “did that really just happen!?” Wonderful people (check) amazing locations (check) great light (check) time given for me to do my thing (check and mark!) Congratulations Fabiola and Abasi! Oh, and props to Sojourner and her team from Erganic Design for their hard work throughout the day and converting the Metropolitan Pavilion into an amazing space!
I met up with Kelly and Dennis for their e-session at Liberty State Park, which always a great place to shoot. I had a lot of fun photographing these two. Kelly has a bit of an infectious laugh too, although at first I thought she might be hyper ventilating! I’m really looking forward to photographing their wedding in several weeks! See you guys then!
Just two of my favorite shots from Alyssa and Patrick’s wedding! The first one is pretty much straight out of camera. The white dots are rain drops and the flare is from a flash. This was in fact shot in the parking lot, and not on the gamma quadrant of the milky way! The second shot was done inside a silo. Thanks for trusting me guys!
I had such a great time photographing Andrea + Peter’s wedding at Tappan Hill Mansion in N.Y.! You may recall that the last wedding I blogged was also shot at Tappan Hill, but the night before, which was also coincidentally my first time there! Unfortunately Andrea and Peter didn’t get quite as nice a day, but honestly though, it doesn’t even matter in the least when you have an awesome couple like Andrea + Peter. And MAN, Andrea sure is photogenic! Everyone was in such great spirits throughout the day, and the rain did eventually subside for some photos outside too! Thanks for letting me join the fun guys! Congratulations Andrea and Peter!
