Not so quiet on the western front

So I haven't posted in a while, but I have a good excuse.

Colleen & Brian

Colleen, Brian and I had a great shoot the other day along two of Philly's great landmarks of Kelly Drive and Logan Square. The light was unbelievably perfect. Soft warm, pink light along the river for some great portraits. We stayed a little longer to let the light drop enough to get that great Magic Hour moment where the exposures of the fountain and the sky were the same. It was a fun shoot that reconfirmed, for me, my belief that great images come when you put two people together and let them be themselves. No stiff posing, nothing forced just some unstructured moments that show how these two feel about each other. Sure, I could have told Brian to kiss her on the hand or the forehead but it's so much better and more meaningful that he did it on his own. In each image, Colleen is so clearly emotional about the moment that it says something real and fantastic.
