Shelby was the second Shelby from Maryland to call me in a one week period and book a wedding for 2008. I was glad to finally meet her and Andrew this weekend and take some photos of them around Village Gate Square
and the Rochester Museum and Science Center
. Fortunately the weather cooperated and gave us a beautiful sunset. While at the RMSC, we overheard a reception or party nearby where the DJ played several Michael Jackson songs (RIP), in tribute to his passing two days prior.
I appreciated Shelby and Andrew's patience while I set up a few shots.. I think it paid off with a couple of creative and different ideas.
Very cute :)
Love their relaxed playful attitude
This was my wife's idea.. a good one!
A nice simple portrait
Onto the RMSC, which had a nice little garden area in the back:
Then we played with the whispering sound dishes...
And finally some nighttime twilight-esque shots
I'm very much looking forward to shooting their wedding at the Lower Mill later this year.. it's a lovely location for a more intimate type of wedding, well suited for this couple. Thank you both for a great time and enjoy the photos.
