Larissa and Garrett, Rocky Neck State Park

This was event number 2 of 3 that I had with Carla a few weeks back.
This wedding was a blast. Weather was great, a bit warm for me but it was perfect for the wedding!!! The location was awesome, I haven't been to Rocky Neck State Park in a long, long time. When I first met Larissa she was all smiles and filled with laughter, if it was nerves she sure did hide it well.

I loved the beach theme wedding and all the details that they had!

Getting Larissa to smile or laugh was super hard. :)

To date, the coolest wedding dress ever!!

One of the table settings, very nice!

This cake was so neat. The details were amazing.

Christine and Mike's engagement shoot

This e shoot was the first of three shoots this past weekend.  Carla and I started off duck pin bowling at some underground bowling alley, in Hartford, which was a lot of fun.  Christine and Mike were throwin some heat down the lane.  In the end, I think Christine did win though, heck she had her own ball and shoes.

After bowling we flew over to Elizabeth Park to get some shots in before the storm.  It was my first time shooting there which was pretty cool.  The next few pics were taken at Elizabeth Park.

After we left Elizabeth Park we went to Christine and Mike's house for more pics and eats : ).  Mike and Christine are AWESOME cooks and they put together a huge spread, WOW!

One of their 2 cool cats.  This guy followed us everywhere around the house.
Carla found this cool wall, oh ya its the back of Christine and Mike's house, it worked perfectly! The light was great and I can't wait to see what Carla got from this location.

This is the other cat.  I don't think he moved from this spot the entire time.

Christine and Mike were wicked cool, thanks for the great time!!! 
Check out Carla's blog for more pictures.

michelle turner seminar part dos

I attended a two day Michelle Turner seminar in Mass, with Carla, hosted by Alicia Williams of cordele photography. This was such a great time and awesome learning experience for me. This seminar was pack filled with valuable information that just made me open my eyes even more. I learned a lot of cool things from Michelle and can't wait to experiment at the next shoot.  Michelle was a great inspiration and I highly recommend getting to one of her seminars.  Here are some of the other images I got during the two days

I saw this huge puddle in the parking lot and wanted to get a cool angle with Karen in the background posing against a blue dumpster.
Karen and Bobby were GREAT models.  I first thought they were professionals that Michelle and Alicia hired, but I was wrong.  They were naturals in front of the camera's, especially 6 cameras.

Everyone in the class was shooting the models from the right side.  I swung around and decided to use the sidewalk in the background as a leading line, came out pretty cool I think!
Lovin the brick wall, Carla's favorite place to shoot at.

Michelle and Alicia found this cool red barn door, which made for an awesome background.
Random rock wall that Michelle found in the woods. 

This part of the shoot was AWESOME!!!! I never realized that when cows were scared they crapped everywhere.  There were probably 40 or more in this room, and it was flowing like crazy.  It was the funniest thing I've seen in awhile, crap hitting the floor everywhere.  I'm very surprised none of us were pelted with poop!  Heather, the model, was a champ for going along with the idea : )
This was the only BULL in the bunch!  It was great when he tried eating Heather's dress
The greatest part of the picture is to take a close look at the terrifying look on the city girl's face, oh BTW its Carla.  Good thing that humans don't react like cows when their scared, HAHAHA
