Engagement Session with Rachel and Robb at Rutgers Gardens

Engagement Session with Rachel and Robb at Rutgers Gardens

These two were up for anything. My kind of people to shoot! Rutgers Gardens is a sprawling landscape of different species of trees and flowers. Even though it’s ten minutes from my house, I still have yet to see the entire grounds. We visited the Bamboo Forest, a small creek and the log cabin. It wasn’t the warmest day, but I work with troopers who know I will deliver the goods. Congratulations to Rachel and Robb!

Portraits with Kieran Tintle kicked off with a drop cloth background in my living room. As we waited for the rain to taper off, we ran off a few shots. I made use of the tan wall to bounce light back onto him. Artificial tan. Since we had a relaxed schedule, I shot both digital and film. The look of film still has a lot of appeal to me and I say that it keeps me sharp. You can’t run off 100 shots on a roll of 120 film. The particular camera I use produces 15 shots per roll and every shot must be carefully thought out.

Our locations included my living room, Old Queen’s College (Rutgers), Harris Steel and a playground. Kieran was a very good sport because the rain picked up at times and it wasn’t exactly warm out.
