I loved loved loved working with Erin and Bobby on this shoot. We spent a beautiful pre-Spring afternoon in Shockoe Bottom, hit Main Street Station, Globehopper Coffehouse and Lounge, the flood wall and a few murals in between. As I was editing the images (which I usually start to do about 30 minutes after my shoot if I’m excited, as I was here), different people peeked over my shoulder and every one of them commented on what a beautiful couple Erin and Bobby make. They look at each other with such affection and you can tell they just love being in each other’s presence. They were also totally willing to play with me, even when it came to Bobby balancing on a rather small ledge while he carried his bride-to-be over a pretend threshold! We also lucked out and found a mural of a row of gondolas with Venice’s skyline in the background. As it turns out Venice is the first stop on Erin and Bobby’s honeymoon cruise!
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot Richmond’s own Michael Taylor as he presented his Spring 2010 fashion show at the Lucky Strike building. As the models gathered for a quick pre-show pep talk amid a whirlwind of last-minute makeup, jewelry and scarves, Taylor told them that what he wanted from them was “drama.” Well…there was definitely plenty of high drama and attitude on that runway! I loved seeing Taylor’s creativity on display and I am so excited that Richmond would host such a great show! If you get a chance, check out the slideshow I put together for the Richmond Times-Dispatch and enjoy!
