jessica and eric engagment shoot, Hartford

This past Sunday Carla and I had an engagement shoot with Jessica and Eric. We ventured out around Hartford, areas which Carla said she has never shot before. Our first stop was the Union Train Station in downtown Hartford. So like Carla said she usually gives her clients a little direction during the shoot, but not this one. I think Jessica and Eric took Carla by surprise, they need no direction and jumped right into it.

After leaving the train station we found this cool red wall next to Upper on the Rocks. After rocking this wall for awhile I caught Carla spray painting her logo onto the brick, she had stencils made. She told me its apart of her new marketing plan.

Yankee and Red Sox's fan getting married, who would of thought.

The tunnel/ walk way, next to the train station, had some really nice light and we got some awesome shots from there.

Our next stop was a parking garage where Carla really wanted to use the crazy storm clouds as a back drop. Jessica and Eric were great coming with a crazy amount of outfits for the shoot.

Our last stop was at the Marriott hotel in Hartford.

Yes, yes, yes I love dramatic lighting. This was such a simple set up, in a parking garage under a light and such an awesome result.

Congrats to both Jessica and Eric. Can't wait for your wedding next year.

The tunnel shot is amazing! Way to work the light.

Yes, the dramatic shot of Eric is wonderful. Guessing not an American flag, but definitely gives it an "American" look. Way to use the chain links!
