Spring is here?… “Not yet” said the Ice Queen

by on Mar.17, 2016, under Wedding & Engagement

Hello my friends,

The cherries outside will soon start blooming, and the birds will be singing their beautiful songs. …Do you feel it in the air? It’s almost that time of the year. But before that happens, I have something pretty special to share with you. It has been in the making for quite some time – from crystallizing the concept to finding the location and putting everything together. In order to make something stand out, especially in the oversaturated field of wedding photography – where people have already seen everything – it really needs to be special. Not just partially – every single bit of it.

I always had a vision of making my own Ice Queen photograph. The Northeast, on the other hand, has always been fascinating to me in the winter – particularly with these gigantic icicles you can see along the smaller roads. Those, as my own of twist to the Ice Queen idea, were a big part of the initial vision I had in my head.

So here we are – in Alaska (…just kidding – we are in Bolton, CT), enjoying this absolutely stunning natural display in front of our eyes – and racing with time to capture the best out of the beautiful soft light before the sun went down. This is the place for me to say my praises for the absolutely amazing group of talented people I had the pleasure to work with. None of that would have been possible without them – and every single person absolutely nailed their part. …Did I mention how much fun we had?

The results are below. You be the judge. Enjoy!

Super Cool Underwater Bridal Fashion Photo Session with Jen

by on Sep.17, 2013, under Wedding & Engagement

KISS, a.k.a. Keep it Simple Stupid.

I’ve always been a fan if simplifying things, and in many cases it is such a winning formula. Shortly after we pulled off this super colorful underwater fairy tale shoot we got together with Jen and talked about doing something much simpler and focus primarily on her, and the dress. It didn’t take much planning, as a matter of fact we improvised most of it. We started with a couple of quick shots around the pool, and then got underwater. It took us just about an hour and a half to be done.

And boy, I LOVED it. I loved the contrast between the  red hair, the uber cool lipstick and the blue lining of the pool, how simple and clean everything was, and the lack of anything distracting. …And Jen, who rocked it. As always. It seems through the years she has developed gills and can stay underwater longer than anybody else. I honestly don’t know how she does it. Check out the results.
