Bekah and Joe

10 November 2009

Last week I had the opportunity to shoot with three great people. The first is one of the great local photographers I have developed a friendship with David Terry. You can see his work here.

The second was one of my favorite models to work with, Bekah Ostler. She is one of my favorite because she very easy to work with, open to try new ideas, and a genuine person. And I would consider her a good friend.

The last person was the reason for the shoot. Joe Jones is Bekah’s fiance’, the shoot was the engagement photo’s for Bekah and Joe. It was great to meet Joe and get to know him a little better. He did great while we dragged him all over the place. While I was primarily along to assist on the shoot I did get the opportunity to take a few shots while we had available light. Once it got dark however I became solely a V.A.L.S (Voice Activated Light Stand) – read that as Daves lighting grunt. Overall it was a fun experience and I really enjoyed working with Dave. Next time I’ll just ask a few more questions. Thanks go out to Dave, Bekah and Joe.

Below are a few of the pictures I captured while the light was still somewhat good.

Lovin Life!

Her hair must smell good!

A quick shot taken while we walked to the next location

Probably the only time these two didn't have major grins on their faces.

I couldn't resist capturing this shot, we were setting up for the next series of photo's when I saw Bekah standing against the column like this and I just had to have the shot!

Things I learned:
– I love the 50mm 1.8 but need to use it more!
– It has been way to long since I shot this type of a shoot – I need to do more, more often.
– If you have an idea run with it, see this shot that Dave took here.
