Engagement photos, to get things going...

After building and maintaining my Classical Photography website for the past dozen years or so (and building sites for some other people as well, though I am not primarily a web designer), I've finally reached the point of creating a blog so that I can get some of my content up in a more timely fashion. At least that's the plan going into this!

The blog will center on photography, though I intend to allow myself excursions into at least a few of my other areas of interest and - dare I say it - expertise. Your thoughtful comments will always be welcomed. So, just to kick away from the dock and see where we wander, here are a few photos from a very recent engagement session with Shavon and Theous -

outdoor engagement portrait

With the weather being extremely hot and humid in Raleigh last week (our session took place during a string of days of record setting temperatures), we went outside early. We found a natural light pattern that was favorable, though tricky to balance against potential background distractions. After having some fun outdoors, we ducked into the studio for some cool shots.

I did some portraits of Shavon alone...

...and Theous alone... of course many shots of the two together, which is when the magic really came through. It's just so clear that they belong together! I can hardly wait until the wedding!

After the wedding, I'm sure there will be some fun pics to post here. In the mean time, stay cool if you're in a hot climate, and stay tuned!
