Hal and Katie : Wedding

Hal and Katie literally tied-the-knot on a beautiful, foggy day at Crest Mountain just outside of Asheville, NC. They opted for a “First Look,” which I always love doing. This one was especially sweet being on the third-floor balcony of the condo where Katie got ready. The balcony overlooks Downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains in the distance. “First Looks” are a great way to relieve a little of the stress before you see each other down the aisle, and it means you can get many of your formal photos taken care of before the wedding! The rain held off just long enough to be able to have the ceremony in the planned, outdoor setting, and although the fog clouded the mountain views in the distance, it created a soft, dreamy, romantic feel for the nuptials. Katie looked stunning in her Ieie gown, and Hal was rather dapper with his custom-monogrammed tie. The festivities continued inside the pavilion, and the rest of the reception was a blast of a party! The night was wrapped up with a sparkler exit and a night on the town. I so enjoyed every minute of this day, and I’m really happy I was able to be a part of it. And now, on to the photos!

For anyone who might be curious/interested… This was all shot with a Mamiya 645AF, Canon 1V, and Pentax K1000 on Fuji Pro 400h, Kodak Portra 400, Kodak TMax 400, Kodak Tri-X 400, and Ilford Delta 3200, and developed and scanned by the wonderfully talented people at Richard Photo Lab.

Huge “Thanks” to John Robinson for making the trip with us down to Asheville to second-shoot! I loved having you along, and look forward to being able to do it again sometime.

Humpback Rock : Blue Ridge Parkway

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

A few weeks ago, Lindsey, Bailey, Elloise, and I made the short trip up to the Blue Ridge Parkway and met some friends to hike up to Humpback Rocks. Being this close to the Parkway is certainly a perk of living in Charlottesville. It’s a short, moderately steep climb to the top, but the 45 minute hike is completely worth it. The rock outcrop offers stunning views from the top, and we could not have asked for better weather while we were there. I captured all of this on Ilford Delta 3200 with a Canon 1V and Zeiss 50mm f/1.4. I fully intend to head back up soon to shoot some medium format slides as the leaves are changing.
