Missy & Matt: 1 fps

This post is dedicated to Cococello, who reminded me this week (again), not every blog post has to be the epics of Homer.  So like many others, I am introducing smaller posts in between the Herculean posts.

I am now just beginning to piece together the feelings relating to key concerns and questions I am facing in regards to this year of weddings and engagement sessions.  Mainly about how I approach my imagery, how I handle the visual repetition and how I am learning to place that into my educational insurance bank (that is already pretty extensive).

Cynthia & Paul: Engagement Session

I will be honest.  I was slightly nervous about shooting this engagement session for Cynthia and her fiancee, Paul.  Ok, very.

Several months ago, Cynthia booked me for her small, intimate wedding of 60 people which will be on May 14, 2011 at the Zolla-Lieberman Gallery.  At the same time, she also wanted an engagement session.  While none of this is abnormal, Cynthia booked me via email only.  No phone call, no in-person consultation.

Chicago Blackstone Hotel wedding: Wendy & PJ

While I enjoy the repetition of venues and knowing how to approach these spaces, this was my first time to the Blackstone Hotel.

When I walked into the bride's suite, there was a lot of energy as the final push to get Wendy ready for the meet-up with her fiancee, PJ.  I had to step back and take a deep breathe so I could scan the room and assess each and every hurdle in front of me.  The room was spacious, but Wendy was at the farthest reaches of the room, in a corner, with multiple hair and make-up artists standing in the way, annoying portable lighting and heating lamps placed nearby, a massive dining table cluttered with paraphernalia and bridesmaids rotating about to catch a glimpse of Wendy's progress.
