My model looks like she is about to walk off the screen, hey eyes are piercing through, and I feel like I am right there with her. Neither of these things are achieved with digital (and it has its reasons) without major understanding of what tweaks to make. And don’t get me wrong - I LOVE shooting digital, I just prefer film when it comes to portrait photography - its true magic.Read More
A new project with Lisa & Dancer. I couldn’t resist photographing the two of them! How gorgeous are they!
Back in July, when Lena first came to me looking for a prospective photographer and designer for her November wedding, I was thrilled and anxious at the same time - November is a colder unpredictable month with not much foliage or day light and with crazy weather. My anxiety however went away a lot faster than I thought, as we started to plan out Lena and Josh's invitations and soon after I forgot entirely that time was flying and November was right around the corner.
This was the first time I was going to shoot with a second shooter and choosing the right person was no laughing matter. I never realized how hard it is to find someone who matches your style of photography, your philosophy, and your work ethic. So when I found Richelle, I knew we were going to create magic.
Lena and Josh held their wedding in the 13th-century-built castle of Dagestein in Vilseck, Germany. When you talk about a legendary wedding, nothing could've beaten this location. Wood and stone of the castle are such a great combination with the lightness and happiness of the event. Lena chose her wedding to be in beautiful fall colors of marsala and sharkskin mixed in with some blush and eucalyptus green. Richelle and I were so excited to be a part of this wedding and through the process of planning we realized we couldn't have asked for a better bride and now a friend.
Here are some of our favorites from the big day!
