Love Boat..

As fun as this wedding was for Brooke and Michale and everyone involved, I have to admit I did have a moment of pure fear. After the completion of the wedding ceremony and family portraits, we had a few minutes with the Brooke & Michael to capture their portraits. We had a beautiful afternoon and the weather was just right. I saw in the distance a boat docked and wanted to capture an image of Brooke and Michael aboard. When I approached the boat I noticed some water gathered on the floor. Since, I originally wanted them to sit I had to go to plan "B", standing.  Once I had them in place and I was ready to take the photo, I realized - what if they loose their balance.... what if, they fall in the water!  It was at that moment that I had to take a deep breath and just pray that we could get the photo and get them out of the boat with out falling in the water. Yes, she did get her veil wet (as you can see in the photo) but that material dries in no time. Plus she was going to remove it before the reception. After my heart returned to its normal pace, the rest of the night went off with out any glitches. Thanks to the team below who made it a successful event.

Jill, Ryan, Lizzie and Bennie join as one big happy family.

Working on this wedding was a special treat for me. Being an animal lover I was thrilled with the news that two of the four family members were of the "furry four legged kind". I couldn't wait to photograph the pooches taking part in the wedding ceremony. This was an extremely fun assignment for me.

These are the extended family members. Lizzie is the chocolate lab and Bennie is the Golden. They did a great job bringing in the rings down the aisle.

Chemistry 101

After many years of photographing people I have come to realize that not everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera. I’d say that 95% of the people I shoot are not models; they are folks who have not had any “on camera” training. Sure, some folks feel very natural when a camera is pointed in their direction, others not so much. Every once in a while I do come across a couple who seem to be so comfortable with one another that it really doesn’t matter that there is a camera capturing their every move.

Cindy and Roger are that couple. When I sent in their Era Engagement photos to the album manufacturer they actually emailed and raved about the album and how much they liked the models we chose for the shoot. They were surprised to find out that these two were not models, but two people who really love one another.

During the session I asked Cindy and Roger to just “BE” with each other, to pretend that I was not there. This couples chemistry level was off the charts, so much so that I wanted to know if they would bottle it up and make it available for the general public.
