A little rain can be a good thing!

 As the saying goes, a little rain on your wedding day is good luck for your marriage! But a rainy day doesn't need to mean that you won't get great pictures, either!
  Rain can be many things- a downpour is exciting, a spring shower is romantic. And an umbrella- well, it's the ultimate unifying symbol, no?
 I just love this shot from a rainy wedding just a couple of weeks ago. The bride's body is turned-in towards his, as she scoops up her big skirt to keep it out of the puddles. The slightly desaturated color that you get on a rainy day gives the shot a calm, romantic tone. But the bit of motion blur adds a hint of excitement and energy.
This was taken with my Contax 645, and was probably shot at f2.8 a 1/30th.

Jessica & Aaron's Botanical Garden Wedding on Style Me Pretty

Check out those Valentino shoes! Very punk rock with an otherwise girlie ensemble! LOVE them.

All of these images were shot with my Contax 645, except for the second image of the bride with her veil was taken with my Rolleiflex.

Our home in Country Living!

Our beautiful kitchen featured in Country Living's September issue! It's their mini-makeover issue, and they turned our cabinets blue!

...not permanently thank goodness! It was done with an adhesive sticker!
Photographed by Alison Gootee. Fun to have this interior shoot take place in my home! I learned a few tricks!

Summer outdoor dining

  Nothing's better than eating al fresco in the summertime. Berkshires rehearsal dinner. Taken with my Nikon 35mm, 50mm lens, with black and white 3200 speed film.
