Just the other day while scanning through some of the pictures we took in 2010, we began to think about all the fun we had with our clients while shooting their engagement sessions. So we decided to randomly pick a few to repost for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
Jamal & Colleen‘s May 2010 E-session.
Kisha & Mike‘s May 2010 E-session.
Brian & Jen‘s May 2010 E-session at Centennial Park in Maryland.
Ketura & Rob‘s June 2010 E-session.
Jamie & Jeannette‘s October 2010 E-session.
Aaron & Carmella‘s November 2010 E-session.
Although it is snow on the ground, we are already looking forward to this years wedding season. Not too long ago we got together with our friends Lynn & Brandon to take a few pictures for their “Save the Date” cards, for their wedding this summer. It was just a tad bit too cold out to chug around the city for their full engagement session, so look for that some time this spring. For now, enjoy just a couple from our brief time together.
***Updated to add – for those of you that have asked, the snowball idea was completely Lynn’s idea, we cannot take all the credit!
As much as we talk about tennis or just how excited we are when we get a chance to get to the US Open we almost feel guilty for not posting any pictures just after our visit a few months back. But with the fall season being one of the busiest times for us we barely had time to do anything but keep up with our clients. Since we shot our last wedding of 2010 a few weeks back we managed to carve out a few minutes to share just a few pictures from our last visit.
The US Open is truly a melting pot, and it is amazing how you can meet people from all over the world there, sharing in their love for tennis. Last year we met the nicest retired older couple, and after talking with them a little while they told us how they were from South Africa and moved their family there about 25 years ago. For the pass 8 years they make the trip to New York each year to stay a week in Manhattan to take in the Open. After what was a full week for them they decided that they were not going to stick around for the night match in Arthur Ashe stadium so they gave their tickets to us. We almost wanted to see if they could adopt us as their other grand children and take us back to South Africa with them : )
This year while we were there having some lunch we shared a table with a couple where we thought the 40yo-ish woman was young enough to be the older guys daughter……until we talked further with them and they told us how they were just married at the Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas earlier that year and how that Sunday after the Open they were going boat/yacht racing with some of their friends….. They then had the nerve to ask us have we ever been yacht racing??? We wanted to say are you kidding us lady, we almost had to sneak in the back door in order to get in here : )
Anywho…enjoy some of the pics from our not too recent trip.
Ok….this here adult beverage deserves a moment of silence by itself. We would be remiss if we didn’t say how much of a delight they were Tiffany didn’t too much care for the salad but I thoroughly enjoyed both and will be having the combo again next time around.
Shortly after taking the above picture, the guy next to us offered to take our picture and we must say he didn’t do too bad of a job.
Caroline Wozniacki the #1 ranked women’s tennis player in the world, it is almost unbelievable that she was only born in 1990…..we were kinda bummed that she lost to Kim Clijsters in the Finals.
No Tiffany, I’m not interested in taking a picture, I’m on the phone conducting business right now…
The ever exciting and sometimes crazy Gael Monfils, ranked #12 in the world.
We were so tempted to offer this woman a few of those frozen drinks from above and see if she would let us have use any of her super expensive equipment, that big lens is north of $5K.
We were pretty sure Marietta, Georgia’s own Melanie Oudin was looking right at us.
“What did you say mommy?”…..”Oh I didn’t like that very much”…..”I’m ready to go home now, you don’t like me.”
Some of the damage incurred……and forgive us for spotlighting that delicious drink again.
And what is definitely our favorite shot of the weekend, taken from Arthur Ashe stadium.
Its not everyday that a routine trip to a local supermarket ends up in marriage….but in the case of Stephanie and Andre that is precisely what happened. Their friendship started some 20+ years ago when they both attended Temple University (go Owls by the way!). Back then they were just “friends”, although they will both admit that they thought the other was rather attractive. So what happened??? At the time, not much at all. Eventually they both graduated from Temple and moved on with life as they knew it, losing contact for years until one day in the aisles of your local supermarket. Milk?…check, Bread?…check, Love of my life?…double check! A love story was in the making, that could clearly be seen from the moment I met them. A love that shows in these pictures from their engagement session and will be seen in their wedding pictures to be posted soon.
This engagement session was shot entirely by Ronald Pridgen, our partner in crime. Enjoy!
