Sneak Peek of Tanya and Azhar's engagement shoot

This past weekend was crappy and rainy ....but a friend's engagement shoot was scheduled and firm. The makeup artist/stylist is a busy busy (and talented) girl and Tanya wanted to make sure she had her...so our outdoor 'around town' idea was nixed and we ended up at my studio. I'm actually glad. I feel a little more rushed when walking around the city shooting ... waiting to be told I'm not allowed to shoot in certain areas, and always trying to not be too obnoxious or draw a crowd. At the studio.... we can hang out, have a drink, try new things casually, and stay dry!

Dave helped me set up the ginormous backdrop and the 2 alien bees. (He even held one above their head for a while... I like to help him work on his triceps.)

We actually got a few frames off in the drizzle before moving into the studio... Here are a few shots from Copley Square.

At the studio we had wine and cider and gummy bears. (Okay, maybe I was the only one having gummy bears). Here are few fun ones from the shoot.
