Engagement of Rob + Anna, 27 Jun 10

So, I frequent this photography forum, you know, to learn new techniques, get feedback, talk shop. Last year someone posts they're looking for a wedding photographer in upstate NY- and I respond (among many others). Well, thankfully Rob + Anna chose me to photograph their October wedding at Norton Chapel at Keuka College (and reception nearby). The pressure is on of course, since Rob is a photographer himself (plus sees all the same great stuff from around the world I do on that forum). We finally settled on a date to do their engagement shoot- and since they live in faraway Bath NY (where, coincidentally, one of the groomsmen from my own wedding is from), we chose Letchworth State Park as our glorious backdrop.. it is the "grand canyon of the east" after all!

Well enough from me- check out the pics of the lovely couple!

After a little goofin around

Cool kids

Another one of my panorama projects, this one is 27 images stitched together.

And a couple shots at the Glen Iris Inn, a nice wedding photography location in of itself.

This one is sweet... tiger lillies are blooming early this year.

Of course, if you're at Letchworth, how can you not climb the bridge? (fast fact: this once was the site of the world's largest wooden bridge until it burned down)

Seriously, looking through those cracks down 300+ feet gives you the creeps. So you just don't look down. And the loogie test this time yielded 11 sec from bridge top to river. wow.

A nice infrared photo

And a cool-lookin strobey shot to finish things up!

Thanks for a good time Rob + Anna, I'm looking forward to your wedding this fall!
