For Thanksgiving I was headed back to the philadelphia are and decided to set up a shoot at the eastern state penitentary. I was going to shoot with Kelly in a previous shoot, but she couldnt make it due to dance. So I decided to contact her for this shoot and she was available! So I decided to ask her friend Lindsy whom I had shot with in Brigantine NJ earlier this year. Anyway it proved pretty hard to get any shots there, considering there is a “fine line” between shots and “model” shots. Which I dont really get but regardless we had fun and got some neat shots. Below are a couple from the cold day.
I did an engagement shoot for Michael and Courtney less than 2 weeks before their wedding. The wedding was November 8th 2008 in Danville Pa. I really enjoyed meeting them at their engagement shoot and got to know them a bit. They are very adventurous and have done a fair bit of traveling. The engagement shots came out very good, because they are so in love and it showed! Needless to say it made my job easier. I barely had to pose them.
I arrived with my assistant at the church in Danville around 12pm. The church was pretty large and had awesome high ceilings. One of the stipulations was I no flashes and no photography from the audience. So I had to head up to the balcony and shoot from there with no flash. I switched between my 55-200vr, fish eye and 50mm 1.8 for the majority of the shots.
After the ceremony we had a ton of family/portrait shots to do. Everyone cooperated well, considering they were hungry and ready to party.
The couple and I headed outside and got some great shots of the autumn foilage. The reception was held at the elks club. The night ended with Michael and Courtney heading off to their honeymoon! The guests all held sparklers as the made their way to their vehicle, which had a big banner on the back “just married”
Septemeber 21st Gillian and Erik got married at The Stroudsmoor, located in East Stroudsburg Pa. It was a great location and beautiful day. It was small intimate wedding held at the grotto location. Because of the amount of guests, we were able to get EVERYONE in a group picture which was a great idea. Gillian ordered wallets of the group shot to send in thank you cards. Good idea!
Gillian looked great and I loved her dress!
The bridesmaids were in navy blue and everything complimented eachother wonderfully! They had a small reception and cocktail hour.
Well another thanksgiving day came and gone. My thanksgiving consisted of packing 3 dogs a 24 month old and my husband in the car, then driving 4 hours to philadelphia. FUN
Well tomorrow I will be shooting at the eastern state penn in center city. Will post some pics tomm
