Heather & Anthony | Eastern Market engagement

Heather and Anthony bought me dinner at a fabulous restaurant exported from Florence.  Soooo, needless to say, they are on my A+ list.  We started at Acqua Al 2‘s new room upstairs and then scooted around Eastern Market a bit.

I tried something new and weird with Heather and Anthony.  I rather like this double exposure thing.  Not so bad for a first try, right?

As I told Heather and Anthony, my favorite place to do an engagement session in the city is always somewhere new.  I encourage my clients to pick “somewhere meaningful” for them, because I want their engagement photos to actually talk to who they were as an engaged couple.  But I also recommend that because it means I get to shoot in new locations all the time.  There’s always something to play with in any given neighborhood.  For instance, I love the heck out of this image below, which was taken in a tiny courtyard next to some office buildings. It is definitely not a “portrait location.”  It’s one of the great magic things about photography – what’s not in the photo doesn’t exist.

Good times, guys!  I’m looking forward to your wedding!

Holy moly, I need to try that restaurant! (I studied abroad in Florence, but haven’t been back since. Feeling sad that I can’t afford to travel internationally right now, so this looks like a great substitute!)

Also, I love the double exposure shot!
