Jen and Tom in Newark Delaware
Well you remember Jen and Tom. They had their wedding at the Hotel DuPont. Great wedding ceremony at the hotel however the day was a bit drabby and rainy and we could not do any outdoor photographs. What a shame that was. Every Bride dreams of having their wedding photographs done outside in the area they are getting married.
Well God smiled down on them because shortly after their wedding the Delaware Professional Photographers association asked me to do a program on lighting and portrait capture. Well there were 2 other photographers that were also teaching the course for the day and we were asked to bring our own models. Going back over a year ago I asked Jen and Tom if they were interested and they jumped at the chance. A lot of the people you see around their images were actually photographers that were taking the class. The day turned out to be great. The weather was great and we went to a few different locations in the morning. What we did interesting was that since there were 3 of us teaching the program and the group was split up into 3 different groups, we changed around the couples that were being photographed 3 times and each couple received 3 different prospective of photography for their wedding portraits. The 2 other Brides and Grooms had very similar situations on their wedding day.
It worked out great for everyone. Jen and Tom made and album out the session different from their regular wedding album and we just had a ball. They still get notes from the other couples and I believe they socialize. Some good friends were made on that day.
We actually walked the streets of Olde City Newark Delaware and really stopped at a few different locations. Just playing it by ear or as they say shooting from the hip.
We found Some really great doorways
Yes the guys on the left side are my photography students!
