A perfect location for an engagement session! My home away from home, Sandy Hook, for another whirlwind sunset session with Kelly and Ozi. It’s a beautiful time of day as the sun illuminates everything with a powerful orange glow. Sandy Hook is also several miles long, so capturing as many locations as possible before darkness is always a fun game to play. Preparing for a wedding obviously takes a lot of time and the engagement shoot is the first step in giving the couple something tangible to use for announcements to guests.
Ozi had me dying when he struck the same pose as Kelly with his hand on hip. It was hilarious and I’m so glad he did it! It’s those spontaneous moments that really make for the best photographs.

Emily is actively auditioning for shows and needed a new headshot. That Werks to the rescue! Here are 3 of my favorites from the session. Time to bust out the black velvet and lighting! I bounced light from the top, sides and front for this series. I think the result gives a nice glow to the subject. When Emily is a famous performer I can say I knew her from back in the day.
Outfit changes and props galore! Swathi came with an impressive array of items for her shoot, including her friend Serena who assisted with styling. I’m used to Princeton’s huge summer color palette, so it was important to bring in as much color as possible for this grey day.
Swathi obviously has a great fashion sense and each of her outfits gives us a sense of who she is. I also love working with people that can smile naturally! It is a true talent.
Last night I had the distinct honor of photographing my brother and his housemate. My primary goal for the evening was concentrated on black and white imagery.
