Hello, people! It’s been a while since I posted a blog on this site. Hopefully this sets off a trend of me posting blogs more often, but no promises. We’re kicking off this potential renaissance with a few highlights from a totally fun engagement session with two people that love salmon! A lot!
There’s nothing like taking the sun by the horns and saying “with this trip around this hot, hot sun I command thee to bestow a photo shoot upon me!”
Nobody actually says this, but blogs need to have hooks and taglines. Social media! Likes! Sharing Consider yourself hooked!
I’ve known Jasmin for quite a few years and she’s been the star of several shoots I’ve done. It was a hot day at The Art Factory but this summer has been pretty relentless and work still needs to get done.
We kept the laughter a top priority and even had a surprise appearance from an “assistant” that definitely wasn’t on the schedule!
You are correct. Weddings are among the many, many genres I cover in my Art Factory adventures since I’ve been there since 2016. At that time there were no weddings held there. Hard to believe it based on what happens every weekend now.
It’s been a pleasure meeting with wedding couples and working with them to create memorable and artistic images to last a lifetime.
This is some of the work I’ve done there through my blog. There will be more blogging in 2022.
There is also a print version of this available for viewing at The Art Factory during your visit starting in March 2022.
I haven’t blogged a wedding in a looooooong time. It has been the busiest year for weddings that I’ve experienced. I’ll give you one guess why!
My homebase (Art Factory Studios in Paterson, New Jersey) was the setting for Staci and Mickey’s wedding. It couldn’t have been more fun to document. Everything on the timeline was spaced out to allow for maximum creativity and total enjoyment of the day.
I am excited to share this recap blog of the shots we got that day!
Side note: Go see the new “West Side Story” in theaters. Most of the film was shot in Paterson and many scenes at Art Factory Studios itself.
Because of the ongoing (hopefully slowing?) pandemic here in America a lot about life has changed. For Leiah’s 16th birthday the traditional big party wasn’t going to be possible so she received a full-on modeling session from her parents.
Vertical Freedom is a dance studio located in South Plainfield, New Jersey and offers classes in pole fitness, aerial yoga, yoga, kids aerial yoga, adult ballet, vertical barre, pole-ates and cardio & core.
We got some excellent shots of the classes in action using a 24mm tilt-shift and 15mm lenses in combination with MagMod lighting that I hung from the ceiling with blue gels.
Take a look at some of the highlights and remember to visit their web site to get more information and sign-up for classes.
