Carleen and Brian are engaged — congrats!

Hello bloggers…

Today I bring you some cool shots from Carleen and Brian’s engagement session.  These two love birds are as down to earth as they come.  We started the epix session and ended up 1.5 hours later at the bar having drinks.  Thanks Brian for those Grey Goose Tonics.  We can’t wait for your wedding.  Enjoy some of your images…

Rock The Dress NYC. Round One

Hello bloggers…

Well we recently got back from New York City, and while we were there, we did some Rock The Dress sessions and one engagement session.   We’re starting from the back since we had the most time with Bec.  She gave us freedom to do whatever we wanted so we got to walk around NYC and got all sorts of creative shots.  Here are some of my favorite ones…

We were lucky enough to find a cab that did not have those ugly ads on top to get this shot below…

I love the fact that in NYC you could be walking around naked if you wanted to, and nobody would even care.  Nobody cares what Bec is doing wearing a wedding dress in the middle of the street.  Had this been in Miami, it would’ve been a very different picture.

Well there you have it.  That’s what Rock The Dress is all about.  It’s about creating images that are impossible to get during your wedding day.  It’s one more chance to Rock Your Dress, and feel like a bride all over again, even if you have to get in the water or on top of a cab in NYC.  I’ll be posting one session per day.  Keep it locked…
