The Life of Winter

If you have been following this blog, you'll know that I dont often post engagement portraits. (i.e. not yet ever) But, I had such a great session the other day with Leigh and Rocco, the images needed to get published. You might think an engagement session in the dead of winter would not be a good idea, but that is where you would be wrong. Leigh and Rocco had a great attitude, and it communicated very well onto the images. Here are a few of my favorites. 

We had to go into Union Station for a bit to warm up.

You know, all this has me thinking. Its popular to get married in the summer and all, but I think more people should consider winter weddings. I always seem to get very striking images in the winter. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that you see so many summery wedding photos, a winter photo really stands out. Anyhow.. I am looking forward to Leigh and Rocco's wedding coming up in a few weeks.  I hope it snows!

I had the pleasure of photographing Kelley and Jeff's nuptials last weekend.  It was a great wedding with lots of good shots, and most surprisingly, I got a few good ones of the groomsmen.  The harsh lights of the church seemed to play well with men in suits.

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Smoking Causes Lung Cancer, Heart Disease, Emphysema, And May Complicate Pregnancy

What the rules regarding images of people smoking on a blog? Do I have to post that warning? At first, I did it as a joke, but now I am actually wondering... Anyhow, this is what guests do at weddings. Often, they are totally surprised to see me taking their photo (when they do catch me in the act). "What is there to photograph here?" they say. "Dont take my photo while I'm smoking!" they cringe.
