Faces – Featuring Ral

 

4K1C6170webb Faces   Featuring Ral

Today, I launch my special series called “Faces”. Faces is a fun series shot in the studio with a simple plain background. So why faces? After a long wedding season last year, I got so bugged down with work load and wanted a series that was fun and at the same time would re-kindle my love for photography, I also wanted to put to work my studio strobes that only gets used if an engaged couple needs a studio shoot.

The shoot is simple with mostly no props or a very light prop in rare cases, I thought if it was prop based it would like too much like a photobooth.  I will request certain facial expressions from my subject and shoot that expression and sometimes catch candid expressions in between. The shoot will mostly be in black and white so the focus is more on the facial expression.

For my launch, I reached to one of my favorite models/clients- The Nwankwo’s ladies.  Ral came to the studio and delivered exceptionally and I’m sure she had as much fun as did. Look out for more in coming weeks.

JENN + DAMI – A PARIS ENGAGEMENT SHOOT

 

CI0P1898web JENN + DAMI   A PARIS ENGAGEMENT SHOOT

The most anticipated engagement blog post of this year is finally here.  Jenn and Dami wanted an engagement shoot outside of the DC-Maryland-Virginia and the city of love came to mind – Paris. The idea of shooting in Paris felt a bit crazy initiially but as months went by and plans to travel were finalized Paris was no longer an idea..it was real. Tickets purchased, bags packed and off to Paris we went. I’ve been to Paris on vacation but the experience of shooting in this city was nothing short of amazing, so you can call me a Paris photographer..it’s ok lol

Our mission on this shoot was to celebrate love anywhere we could in Paris. We started of at the famous Love Lock bridge, and moved on the hidden Love Wall and finally a shoot with our Love Car aka Love Bug. I will say no more..Enjoy

We thought we found a private spot on the bridge for some “love lock” romance but apparently we forgot we were in Paris for a second..there is always company!

Our next destination was the love wall in Montmartre. This wall has the word “I love you” written in over 300 different languages. Some people call it the meeting point for lovers when you come to Paris. We got lost for sometime trying to find it but it was worth it when we did.
