No title. No caption. I just hope that you smile when you see this photo. And if I’m lucky enough to have you over at my place, you’ll be able to see it in a huge 30×45 inch framed print, hanging over my living room sofa.
I posted these photos long before I was even ready to write a post about the shoot. I was just too eager to show the world the amazing photos that we made that day. Onto the words…
Tabitha and Tony were truly like models. It’s as simple as that. I tell them one thing and they do it – and they do it looking pretty! All I have to do is to take a snapshot of them with my big and bulky camera. What do you get? Awesome and professional looking photos like these! OK, maybe it wasn’t that easy, but the outgoing, open-minded and daring couple definitely made my job easier that day.
You might not be able to tell, but it was one of the hottest days of the summer! However, we made the best of it and still rocked the shoot without breaking too much of a sweat.Tabitha and Tony were hard-to-the-core. They were practically willing to do just about anything! Exorcist stairs? “OK.” Hot scene in an elevator? “OK.” Pull over on the side of the highway with cars flying by? “OK.” Trespass in a government parking structure and risk getting ticketed in the infamous Fairfax County? “OK.” Tabitha and Tony didn’t complain at all! They willingly nodded their heads up and down and trusted me and my creative vision. In turn, it allowed me to do what I do best.
For the shoot, Tony brought along his 1988 Pontiac Fiero, which was outfitted to look like a bright and expensive supercar. The car broke necks and attracted all sorts of attention; although mostly from other men. LOL! Just kidding, it’s an authentic Lotus Elise; which is a ridiculously cool little car! Even though the car looks better on a racetrack, it provided some of my favorite photos of the day.
The lifestyle engagement lasted pretty much all day and drained us all. Tony paid me with delicious and refreshing frozen yogurt from IceBerry and blue-crab fritters from Coastal Flats (my favorite restaurant!), yum! After the long day, there could not have been a better reward. Thanks guys!
Tabitha and Tony will be making it official in 2010. Be sure to stay on the lookout for their wedding shoot!
What a beautiful family! This past weekend, I had the opportunity to photograph such a charming group of people. Each of them – mother, father, daughter and son – had their very own unique characters and personalities. And when they were brought together, they created a wonderful and dynamic family.
It’s pretty amazing to be able to vividly to see the differences between each family member. The greatest part was watching those traits contrast and balance each other out while photographing it!
We chose to do the shoot at Green Spring Gardens, in Alexandria, Virginia. The tucked away park offered many scenic areas to shoot in. In fact, there were a handful of other photographers there, too. If you’re in the area, I’d highly recommend checking it out. Special thanks to Anna for assisting on the shoot!
I had a great time guys, thanks! Maybe next time, we all can get some ice-cream together!
As I was editing the final images from Elizabeth’s wedding, I stumbled upon this gem. I had totally overlooked this image when I posted my favorites after the wedding. Enjoy!
