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.
I like to shoot engagement sessions in 2 separate settings so when Rosa & Mike said that they wanted some nature photos but was also interested in something with some old world architecture, I immediately thought of the perfect place: Waverly, PA. Yes, I know, Waverly has some charm but it's tiny and there's no actual "downtown" per say but next time you are near the Waverly Community House take a hard look at the detail and charm of the building. This worked as a perfect segue for us to shoot here and then head out to the Lackawanna State Park for some nature shots. Toward the end of our evening together, we dropped into Duffy's Coffee House for a warm up and wrapped it up by taking advantage of the Christmas lights at the South Abington Park for some very pretty backgrounds. Enjoy!
