I’ve known Allison’s family for a number of years now, and I really enjoy weddings that have a long-time personal connection… there is some additional pressure, but it makes the moments personal for me, as well. I admit, I definitely become personally involved in every wedding I do, and I have gotten teary over a ceremony involving people I have only met one or two times… on more than one occasion. And as I am sitting here editing and working away at Barnes&Noble with the Backstreet Boys currently playing on the iPod, I realize it may be time to post something on the blog that makes me seem really manly to counteract this “sensitive” blog post. PR time.
Allison and Porter are solid people. Smart, kind, responsible, and a lot of fun. We shot for probably twice the regular time I spend on an engagement session, just because we were having so much fun. I used everything I brought with me, and I took the opportunity to try out a few ideas I had wanted to do for quite some time. One good example is the first image shot on the U of O campus (where they met), using all available light from the lamp posts. Good times get even better when you walk away with images that meet your hopes and expectations.
They are getting married in December at the River Bend Resort in Harrisburg, which I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding with Kacy Kizer, which just so happened to be River Bend’s very first wedding. They were amazing, and I’m pretty sure that December is going to be equally great.
