Monique & Marc's "Love Story" Session

Every now and then you get to photograph an engagement session that stands out from the rest. It's a rare moment that makes you feel good about your photography and provides you with images that can be used to show as samples to other clients.

I have the good pleasure of introducing you to Monique & Marc whose wedding I will be covering in a few weeks. They brought something special to their engagement session which made it stand out from the norm. The prop they brought was Marc's beautiful blue motorcycle. I really enjoyed working with this couple because they came with their "game faces" on and we had a great time creating some unique images.

Monique set the theme for my photography by explaining to me in advance that she wanted to have some exciting shots taken over several locations. So, I planned five different locations to photograph so that we could get some really hot shots. The images below are the ones chosen for their "Love Story" album. Great job, Monique and Marc. I'm looking forward to your wedding date.

Candace Booker's Glamour Session

Many of our portrait clients come from the referral of friends who have either seen our work or have experienced a session with us themselves. Candace Booker is a close friend of Angie Holloway and was extremely pleased with the images that she saw from Angie's session. So, when Candace came into the studio she was already excited about being photographed. Because of her enthusiasm, for me it was one of the easiest sessions I've had in a long time. I had tons of fun and later on I learned from Candace that she had a great time, too.

Candace wanted this session as a gift for her fiancee and all I can say is that he's going to be one happy man when he unveils her portraits. Nice job, Candace. We're looking forward to capturing your wedding images in the future.

Makeup Artist Turned Model

What happens when you're a makeup artist who is working with a photographer and you've come to like his work a lot? Or, you've seen how he can transform your handy work into something extraordinary? Well, you schedule a personal session for yourself.

That's exactly what happened to makeup artist NaTasha Barr of Divine Eyez. She was so impressed with how several clients' portrait sessions turned out she asked me to create some glamour shots of her. My first question to NaTasha was, "Who is going to do your makeup". That was an inside joke, of course.

Anyway, the makeup was impeccable, as only she can apply it, and we had two wonderful sessions together. I personally think NaTasha could handle the double role of Makeup Artist/Model. From what I've experienced while photographing her, I don't think you can take a bad image of NaTasha. She's just that good in front of the camera as well as handling a makeup brush. So, take a look at the portraits that we created together as two accomplished artists in our own arenas. She loves applying makeup and I love taking portraits.
