The rain broke just before the ceremony was to begin at the Common mann Inn + Spa in Plymouth, NH. Racheal and Shantelle were spending the day getting ready with their best girls waiting for the clouds to clear as they were planning a outside ceremony that evening. The rustic tone of the Inn and accompanying decorative lights set a cozy tone for the late fall wedding. Shantelle could not hold back the tears as her bride walked out. Married as the sun shone for the last few minutes these two could not be happier. Racheal and Shantelle slipped away for a intimate moment while their guests enjoyed a few cocktails warm inside. Emotions ran high during the formal dances but that broke way to a super high energy dance party that lasted for hours. Congratulations you guys and thank you for choosing me to document your day!

They were introduced by a coworker but not in your usual way. Becky had seen Tom coming into the restaurant that she worked for on a regular basis and always thought he was adorable! One day Becky saw her coworker run out into the parking lot after Tom had one of his usual visits to the restaurant. Becky thought how strange she is giving him her number after knowing that Becky was interested in him! It turned out she was giving Tom Becky’s number after all! I call that co creating at its best! We did their engagement session at Odiorne Point State Park and captured the last of the fall colors. Becky and Tom were so fun to photograph as their relationship shined through with playful antics. 🙂 They are to be married next year at Alpine Grove and I am looking forward to capturing their wedding day for them!

With Appreciation and Excitement

Sometimes photographers struggle with identifying what “style” or look resinates with them most. What is the look I identify with? I have to be honest this is a struggle of mine or has been for years. I’m beginning to see or realize that maybe its okay to have my look be a mix of styles. I know this isn’t adventagouse to building a brand…or is it? What if my brand IS tending to each image as a individual piece and giving it a “look” that best suites it. Maybe my customers will enjoy the diversity of what they get within a session with me, the not knowing exactly what the end result will be and being part of the creative process of their images. Maybe my ideal customer that relates to my brand most is one that enjoys the the diversity of images. I only know what makes me happy is what I should do and after years of struggling with “style” maybe I should just stop and enjoy what comes. Take delight in the authentic variety of the moment. Having said all of that I will admit being drawn to the stronger images with more grit and emotion.

Sometimes I’m asked why I choose one image over another to become Black and White. I thought it would be fun to do a post all in black and white to explain my thinking behind it all. When I first started I shot all in Black and White with Kodak 400 film as did most art students. I loved the grittiness and surprise I got now and then of imperfections in film and grain. I loved playing with the different papers when developing, matt verses gloss and what that did to the mood of the image. I recently found a preset for Lightroom that is a replica of the old 400 Kodak film I used! I LOVE the grain it has and the softness created. The images chosen to become this look are usually ones that have a certain mood associated with them, usually lacking in “the big smile” for portraits. I normally also choose a image that will have a certain amount of contrast to create that light to dark variation I love for black and white. These images I chose below are examples of that great Kodak film I that brings me back and the mood that the film look enhances.
