Erin & Taylor's Classic New England Wedding on Style Me Pretty

  I love a bride who loves pink! This bride had a blush pink Monique dress, pink invitations, pink floral arrangements, a pink cake, and pink shoes! And it was all beautifully executed with the utmost elegance. See the full post on Style Me Pretty today.
 The majority of these images were taken with my Contax 645, on Portra 400 speed film, except for the image at the bottom which was shot with a toy Holga with flash, black and white film.


 A shout-out to Stacie Shea Events for planning this lovely event!

Portrait of Christina Salway

 A portrait I shot last week of the lovely Christina Salway, interior designer, and contestant on the new NBC show American Dreambuilders.

This shot was taken with my Nikon D3, at 200 ISO, and shot at f1.8. Using a shallow depth of field allows me to get just her eyes into focus, and give a softness to the rest of the image. I just love how the greens and blues work together in this photograph. The blue tonality on what is actually a white wall, is all natural- created by the color temperature of the light at this time of day. All of it creates a gentle backdrop for Christina's killer blue eyes! Good luck on the show, Christina!
