When I first met Mike and Oriana I knew right away that I wanted to photograph them. Just listening to the different ideas about their wedding made me very excited with the idea. And to hear that she has a little bit of a photography background just sealed the deal.
For the Engagement Session we headed downtown, started at the W 6th are and worked our way down the east bank of the flats. It was a bit crowded in downtown that day, I believe the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction concerts where in progress. No biggie, we hit up isolated areas along the way. One thing that I love shooting downtown is the architecture. Gives me room to really play with composition. It seemed that this style would suit them very well.
During the shoot I had the pleasure of shooting a roll of Kodak Portra 800 35mm film on my Nikon F5. Those photos will be posted on a later date along with my review of the film and the camera. In the meantime, please enjoy the following images. We had a blast taking them. Congratulations to Oriana and Mike on their engagement!
For the photo geeks: this last shot I used a CTO warming gel on my flash and balanced for tungsten. A little trick to turn a gray sky blue.
