Michelle & Dave – The Engagement.

Meet Michelle & Dave! They are getting hitched later this year in VEGAS! And even though I can’t be there to shoot the actual ceremony (believe me I would if I could) we will be shooting their Wedding Portraits with the entire wedding party back here in Philly when they get home. 🙂
For their Engagement Session we started at Raw Sushi & Sake Lounge, which is this delicious restaurant located off of Sansom Street, where the couple had their first date. Throughout the day we stopped at a few famous areas in Philly like Love Park and Broad St. but it was the in-between moments that really caught my attention. Outside of the Comcast building there is this little common area where a group of trees shade a few lunch tables. I had the couple sitting at one of the tables and I was shooting them from a distance when I read Dave’s lips as he whispered to Michelle right before he kissed her. He said to her ‘I’m so in love with you right now’. Smooth right?! Such a great moment!!!
Check out some of my favorites from the day.

SAPCC – Lines.

This week’s theme for SAPCC was Lines. I found my lines in the Vegas airport while I was delayed there for just about all of Sunday. I hated being there all day but thankfully on my side of the waiting area there were fewer people, so I could leave my stuff for a bit and walk the windows. This is my shot.

Hooker Hawker.

Here is a portrait I shot of a Hooker Hawker last night on the way home from dinner. Hooker Hawkers are the guys who stand on the sidewalks flicking the cards that have pictures and phone numbers of the local ladies of the night. People mainly walk by them without any notice and the cards end up all over the street by morning. Just think of the cleaning bills. Of course Vegas has more than the streets to worry about as far as cleaning goes.

Dueling Conventions.

So this week as I said earlier, I’m in Vegas, freelancing for Phonescoop.com at CES, which is one of the biggest electronic trade shows of the year. Coincidentally, AVN, the Adult Entertainment Expo is also here this week. So I think, at this moment, Vegas is officially the nerdiest/sexiest city in the world. Just sayin.

SAPCC – Order.

This week’s theme for SAPCC was Order. It’s funny…in my work life I have lots of OCD Order and then if you take a look at hmmm lets say my room at the moment (and if we’re being serious most moments) it’s pure chaos. I’m in Vegas right now, shooting for Phonescoop.com for the CES convention. This place very much like my room on most days is chaos and not the place to search for order.
Here is my shot. I didn’t get the order I wanted but I did however get 1.50 in tokens. 🙂
