Roseanna & Jeremy braved the frigid snow-rain mix for our engagement session and I'm so grateful they did (and so impressed with their ability to appear warm and cozy). Really looking forward to their wedding this fall!
I recently had the pleasure of getting to know Meg from She and I Photography during a One-On-One shoot in German Village. Meg is a talented and super fun photographer here in Columbus - you'd love her. Here are few images of our sweet couple, Ashley and Andrew.
One-on-One Mentor Sessions are two hours; we sip coffee and chat for one -- chatting about technical aspects of shooting, things to keep in mind when directing couples, how to work efficiently and creatively, etc. Then we have a real-life couple join us so we can practice everything we've just talked about. It's a fun, laid-back way to hone your already mad skills! If you're interested in setting up a One-on-One session, please email me via the contact page for rates and availability.
My love affair with film continues -- it's slowly becoming all I use for personal work and I hope to be incorporating it more into my professional work soon (more on that to come!). I woke up to an email from Richard Photo Lab on my birthday letting me know that my film scans were ready for viewing and I couldn't have asked for a better birthday gift! This was my first time using RPL and they lived up to all the hype -- such rich image color and texture. (You getting nervous, DSLR? You should be.) And so here's a peak at the fun we had touring L.A. with our good friends over at Ginger & Birch. The Avalon Hotel provided a perfect setting and delicious coffee for our loungey-baby-napping-mornings.
If the trip had a theme, it would be good food. Thanks to Ashley for her mad research skillz. We ate good, y'all. Favorite setting goes to Eveleigh on Sunset Blvd.
A secondary theme for the trip might be: We are not cool enough for this place. If you're ever in L.A., drop by The Hart and the Hunter for the.best.buttery.good.biscuits you've ever had. (I'm from the South so my biscuit review is legit, folks.)
And then there was the most magical moment of the journey : sharing the wonder and awe of the ocean with our baby girl. It's a humbling thing to experience such beauty with a person whose brand new eyes have never seen such a thing. Your heart gets swollen and eyes a little misty and that desire to only share with her life's most beautiful things is satisfied for a moment.
Ashley's sister Whitney is living in L.A., so we had an insider's know-where-to-go-for-killer-sunset-watching. And so we went. And it was the perfect last day.
Thank you A&A for your crazy "let's invite a six month baby to share a hotel room with us." It was wonderful.
