I know, two blog posts in one day!  What the….  I’ve been so busy lately and I’ve been meaning to post these scans for a while now.  If you saw any of my previous posts you’ll know that I busted out and dusted off the ole’ Hasselblad and decided to shoot some medium format film.  My good friend Justin Demutiis has been shooting film for a while now and we’re continually talking about film versus digital.  I had asked if he would like me to take some portraits of himself and Ashley (his lady friend 🙂  while we were away on our Georgia trip.  Now, those of you who know Justin, know he is quite the stylish man and Ashley is no stranger to fashion herself.  I knew they would look fabulous for the session.  Considering Justin is typically on the other side of the camera I think he did a really good job being photographed and I’m sure it helped that we’ve know each other for so long.  Ashley has such a fun loving, happy, bubbly personality and is always smiling and laughing.  She even took my teasing in stride no problem.  It was very different shooting film again and I’m glad Corey shot some digital along side me as there’s still a few problems with the hassy that need to be fixed.  Overall though I was really happy with the way the session turned out and I just can’t deny that there’s something amazing about the look of medium format and film.  I will definitely be shooting more soon.  Enjoy!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted to the blog so I decided to do a post about a topic that I have had a lot of questions about lately and that is “the Engagement Session”  Why do an engagement session?  A lot of couples that I meet with have already decided to do an engagement session before they even talk to me so that’s easy but there is always those who haven’t thought about it or decided yet.  Often they’re not sending out save the date cards or wanting any other pictures besides the wedding photos.  I totally get that.  For them, the main reason I explain that I love to do an engagement session is to get a head start on the wedding day.   This gives us some time to hang out and get to know each other without the schedule or pressure of the wedding day.  I can see how they interact together, which poses work for them, and the type of pictures they gravitate towards.  It also gets them comfortable in front of the camera and most the time they realize that it’s a lot more fun than they expected.  Especially the guys.  The engagement session also gives us the opportunity to use a location that is different from where the wedding will be held and adds some variety to the mix of pictures they will receive.  Lastly, most of my couples have been ordering an album from their session that is used as a guest sign-in book.  Instead of a boring list of names that will get packed in a box somewhere (and never looked at again) they end up with a beautiful keepsake that they are proud to display and I’m sure will enjoy looking at and reading all the notes from their guests.  So, I hope this helps clarify some questions you might have had about the Engagement Session and I look forward to planning out some fun sessions soon.  Enjoy!

I know I’ve said it before, but I’m going to say it again anyways 🙂  One of the most rewarding things I get to do as a photographer is to be part of my clients lives.  It’s such an honor to have them come back after the wedding for the rest of life’s milestones.  We’re so excited for Haylie and Brian as they await the arrival of their first baby!  I just had to share of few from their gorgeous session before I head out for the weekend.  Enjoy!
