The second of the rescheculed engagement sessions from last week. This was the fourth attempt with Kelly and Jeff, and the fourth time was defintely the charm. Fresh from a weekend camping trip, Kelly and Jeff met me at the Barns Of Hamilton station, lacking in sleep, but now worse from the wear.
The "Barns" is a relatively new and quite beautiful vineyard in Hamilton, right off of Route 7. One of the partners of the vineyard, Kim and Craig Garten are friends of mine, and gracious enough to let me use their beautiful grounds for engagment sessions. They also rent out their property for weddings, and it is really a wonderfully romantic and rustic like atmosphere for a wedding. The pond behind the barn makes for a beautiful ceremony backdrop.
We had a great time running around there and shooting video as well as stills. I am really enjoying playing with video. Kelly and Jeff were great sports and ran around, and danced and just acted silly....over and over again to allow me to get different angles of the shot. I can't wait to begin putting this all together.
In the meantime, tho, here is a short slideshow from some of the stills we took last Sunday.
Kelly and Jeff will be getting married July 6th at Belmont Country Club. This is another beautiful venue, and I can't wait. One of my favorite shots there is the bride in their wonderful clawfoot bathtub. I also love where the groom gets ready. A great pool table loosens up the guys for their day in front of the cameras.
