Annie and Xin wanted to capture an old China feel, and what better place than Chinatown in New York City. The poses required for this theme is different from your typical affection-filled engaegment shoots. There is a mood of conservative coyness, a silence, and a hidden emotional story that doesn't need words or public affection to express. It was a fun experiment and I encourage more couples to engage in themed sessions.
Bernadette and Keith got married on the happy island of Aruba. There's no better way to celebrate than with a few of your craziest friends far away from home, and of course some alcohol lots of alcohol and great music. A pool dive at the end of the night helps too. The next day we rented a Jeep to go to some off road locations for the Trash the Dress session. It's great to find locations without another soul there and just do as you please.
The subject and photographer relationship depicted in these photos perfectly speak to the relationship between bunny and I. This idea is specific to us, and is personal to me. There is a playfulness tied to the seriousness. This is how I see her. This is how I want the world to see her.
Jenny and Peter got married at the beautiful Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Pennsylvania. I enjoyed shooting the bridal party in the beautiful old-style architecture of the resort. I've known Jenny for many years and it's always nice to document a friend's wedding who you know will take care of you and is an easy going person.
Welcome to Battlefield Bed & Breakfast in Gettysburg, PA, a charming location for a wedding. Large backyard ceremony over plush grass, and a cute little barn for the reception, with a large bonfire to end the night.
I was fortunate to visit Chicago for the first time to photograph the engagement of Barbara and Jason back in 2011. We visited different locations between parks and the city, including the famous Cloud Gate.
Every girl wants or thinks she's a cute bunny, but sorry ladies I've found the cutest bunny of them all. "Oh hi Christiana! Will you come out and play with me?" as she emerges from behind Papa Bear. A bright white room and a soft plushy bed makes her a happy bunny and makes me a happy bear. My time spent with her isn't work, it isn't a photo session, it's just playtime.
