Sarah + Brendan

January 23, 2016  •  1 Comment

I don't often have time for blogging...I wish I did, but for the first weekend in months, I have buckets of time (and snow)...and I am excited to blog my first engagement shoot!  Sarah is a total doll and I met her through her amazing sister Jessica...I didn't meet Brendan until the morning of the shoot, but what a couple of sweethearts and both gorgeous to boot.  I'd been interested in doing an engagement shoot for a long time, and I was completely thrilled and very flattered when Jessica recommended me to her sister.

They had fantastic ideas for locations and we couldn't choose...so, why bother....let's do all three!  Annnnd they treated me to a yummy lunch at a place right around the corner from where I live actually, and had never been before.  I was so in to it, and having such a good time, I didn't realize it was a total of 6 hours!  Ahhh!  Sooo, I think I may have to break this up into 3 separate blog posts.  

All 4 of these guys are champs, lemme tell you...not to mention incredibly photogenic...or photogeeenic, Paddy?   It will blow your socks off.  (I mean, Brendan is handsome to be sure, but is Sarah not a dead-ringer for Rachel McAdams?)  

Not sure how I am going to top this shoot. Ever.  I seriously won the photoshoot lottery with this couple.  In addition to being a stunning couple, they are both sweet, appreciative, considerate, accommodating, and generous.  Your mamas raised you right.  

As I've mentioned before, I often have songs pop into my head either during the photoshoot or during culling/editing, and yours was Real Love by John Lennon/The Beatles.

PART I:

LINCOLN MEMORIAL

16 JAN 2016

 

 

I arrived early...thanks to, Red Top Cab #89, Danny, Viet Nam vet (this is my second drive with him...I think it will become a regular thing.) I love me that dreamy, early morning light...but watch how much the light changed over the course of mere minutes....

Sarah and Brendan arrive and the sun came out...temporarily...(thank you film crew guy for giving me the puddle idea!)

This rest of this sentence may not make sense to most folks, but the clouds and mist came out and  the light became completely amazing....

It became very dusky and moody, and very French, if I may say.  Jess commented that you wouldn't even know what time of day it was...

You would think that we photographers would prefer a beautiful sunny day, but not this girl...look at this light!  Yummy!

 

Bobbi Sheridan is one of my favorite photographers and inspired this shot....favorite for the day.

Wait...maybe this is my favorite.  (Rachel McAdams....am I right?!)

And thennnnn, it got a little cooler, a little grayer, and she got a little more Brigitte Bardot....sassy Brigitte Bardot.... ;)

Sigh....can you feel the love?  I know.  I didn't want it to be over either...but t's ok, there will be two more post on them.

And then a bit o' fun from the peanut gallery/stylist team: Hi-Five!...(what a fun group....and how adorable is Sarah...uh, such a natural!)
