Among an array of others, there are two things I was reminded of this weekend about why I love my job. First, I get to make new friends and get to know great couples like Gillian and Fabrizio. Second, more often than not, these couples are amazingly creative and I get to be invited into their creative process. Gillian likes pretty things and it was obvious to me from our first meeting that our aesthetic pretty much lined up perfectly. As she described her wedding, I knew that it was going to be beautiful in just the kind of way I enjoy. In fact their wedding is going to be a perfect way to spend my birthday next August. But if anyone says guys don’t have an eye for detail or aren’t concerned with beauty they’ve never been around guys who love cars. And Fabrizio’s car is gorgeous. Given to him as a gift from his Dad, his 1967 Alfa Romeo Sprint GT, gave us the perfect base upon which to design their engagement session. We chose to shoot in Tilden Park because we felt like the colors in the fall and the rustic feel of the afternoon outdoors would provide a perfect setting. It really couldn’t have been more perfect. Most importantly when you get to beautiful people together who love each other like these two, there really is something magical that happens in their pictures. Observe.
