Catching up with 2008: Alicia and Matt’s Engagement Portraits

Wow! So much to show you…
I have to start using this blog… signed up a year or so ago and haven’t posted a thing. Time to get serious… I’ve got tons of new images to share and this will be a much easier way of showing them than figuring out how to somehow update my website all the time- something I still haven’t managed to find time for.

2008 got off to a fantastic start for me, I’ve booked more weddings than usual this year and am loving the photos I’m taking of the fantastic couples I’m working with. Check out these engagement portraits I’ve done this season… I love shooting these sessions with a guest book in mind, making different scenes that contrast wide shots with closeups, medium shots, etc, all with different backdrops and film-type looks to them. So far the guestbooks themselves are going over great at the weddings and it’s really gratifying to see people huddled around them smiling…. a few mothers have even asked if they could get copies for themselves so of course I redesigned them as regular albums.

Here we see Alicia and Matt’s engagement portraits, shot this past winter. A really sweet couple, maybe you can tell they’re a little on the shy side? Despite the cold I was able to get some incredibly sweet shots of them– I love catching moments when one person is looking at the other with that unmistakable joy in their eyes. Their wedding was truly unique–held at the famous Explorer’s Club in New York City, complete with stuffed polar bear. I’ll show that in another post… lots to catch up on!
