Maybe it's my wife's years working for Lord & Taylor before becoming a teacher that rubbed off on me or her life's goal to dress our two small sons like a daily Ralph Lauren advertisement but I like fashion. There, I said it - I'm a guy and I like fashion lol...But the main reason I like fashion is because I like seeing people look their best and when the camera is in my hand, it's time to show that. To me, there's nothing better than making a couple look confident & styled like they stepped off the pages of Brides , Vanity Fair , or GQ particularly when your photographer can take an everyday location and make it look like this. Shot in downtown Scranton directly in front of the Scranton Cultural Center.
Aleine & Matt are clients from Philly but decided to come to Scranton for their engagement photos. While I strive to pick different settings for my local clients I offered to take them to Steamtown National Historic Site as I felt this would offer them something not typically seen by friends & family. Not only did we have perfect Fall weather for this session, as we were bouncing around shooting in one of the Trolley Cars and on the tracks, one of the park workers invited us into a working passenger car that they just finished restoring and decorating for Christmas. Honestly, I couldn't have planned this any better and when you throw in the fact the Aleine & Matt were just naturals at being themselves in front of the camera, it just made things perfect. Don't you agree?
