These two are stunning people and I got to photograph them in stunning locations. I felt like I saw the best of Mexico in the shortest amount of time. I was honored to photograph Adriana and Abraham's wedding in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Before that I was able to have a fantastic tour of Mexico City with my dear friend where we ate at the famous, Pujol. So when I arrived to San Miguel it felt like going from the new world to the old and we happened to be there when the celebration of San Miguel was commencing so it felt truly special being here. I was completely charmed by this city and to add to the fairy dust sprinkled over this wedding, the lovely couple decide to get married at a vineyard/resort that has fields of lavendar, olive trees and of course, grapes. Adriana stayed at the famous Rosewood hotel and it was like a hidden oasis from the city, which is already an oasis. Everything was so lovely and this is my first Mexican wedding so I wasn't prepared for the 6:30 am party end time.The bride performed a flamenco dance as a surprise to her new husband and of course, there as lots and lots of dancing. I was able to skirt away at 2:30, but this was an amazing wedding that charmed me from the get-go.
When you book a session with me I highly suggest some at-home-shots and then off to a location. It gives you the flexibility to have some images in a place where you are comfortable and then to a location with a great backdrop. I love this little family. I happened to meet Becca my freshman year at college and we never really saw each other after that. 15 years later we find that we are living in the same city and it turns out she has the cutest little girl. Sis is full of great emotion and expressions which made for a wonderful family session. Fall has been full of fantastic family sessions so far and I continue to shoot friends old and new!
I've always wanted to photograph here and when Jessica Zimmerman, a floral designer and event planner from the south, contacted me to do a family shoot here I didn't hesitate to say yes. Our friend Becca from Becca Blue flowers connected us and really this shows how great the wedding and art community can be so wonderful.
Camp Wandawega was everything I hoped for and is styled perfectly down to the tube t.v. in the lounge. I really enjoyed meeting Jessica and her crazy cute family and getting to finally see this amazing place!
Elaine contacted me to do a maternity shoot for her and she left it wide open for me to decide what we should do. Since she is an amazing artist I felt a lot of pressure to preform to her standards. I like being pressured to do well so this wasn't a bad pressure. I wanted to pack in as much as I could into one session since photographing one person can leave one feeling that I'll have less content to provide. So I thought of a location that provided the most diverse backgrounds and I decided to do a gender guess with a color backdrop. Elaine did't know the gender until her baby was born...and it is a girl!
