Going back home to Maryland for Christmas and New Years, I knew I wanted to try and shoot some personal work, just for the fun of it. My good friend, Thalia, whom I met in high school, was always my willing victim when I was in college. Anytime I needed someone to model for me, she was more than happy to do so. Fast forward a few years (oh dang, I don’t want to say how long it’s been since college haha!) and she volunteered to be my model again- it was just like old times! We went to a park near my parents house and frolicked around until we got too cold and needed to retreat to the warmth of the great indoors :-)
It may have been overcast for most of the time, but I’ve always loved the woods in winter so that wasn’t going to stop us. Winter woods have a sort of spooky whimsy to it, so overcast and a bit rainy seemed fitting!
“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure in the landscape - the loneliness of it - the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it - the whole story doesn’t show.”
- Andrew Wyeth
I had the privilege of second shooting for the talented Tiffany Axtmann Photography this past summer at an absolutely gorgeous backyard wedding in downtown Newport. Backyard weddings always hold a special place in my heart- they are definitely some of my favorites and this one was no exception. Dreamy pretty much sums up the day! Here’s some of the shots I took throughout the day with my edits :-)
After our initial Skype consultation, I had a feeling Alex and Ali would be a lot of fun to work with. Well, that was totally true! Their engagement session in downtown Providence was a complete blast. I think we were laughing from the very beginning of the session until it got dark out and we had to stop. We started on Westminster Street- complete with shirtless man in a winter hat driving down the road while playing guitar (yes, that seriously happened) and headed to Prospect Terrace Park on the east side for the second half of the shoot. Such a fun couple, I cannot say enough nice things about them. I cannot wait for their Glen Manor wedding next August!
