Sebastian and Christina, a Love Story

Stopping Traffic

Sebastian and Christina know how to stop traffic. I had so much fun with this couple, both during the engagement shoot and during the wedding (coming soon!). Any serious or romantic shots had to be taken in the split seconds that they weren’t laughing their heads off, cracking each other (and me) up the whole time.

I’m always up for some new locations, so I was excited to learn that they had met in Whole Foods. I’ve always wanted to do shoots in department stores and supermarkets, but they’re notoriously touchy about cameras, so a light, photojournalistic set-up was definitely a plus here.

Presenting Sebastian and Christina!

I told them to pose next to this tree, and instead they tried to knock it down. At least they’re working together.

Dana and Wes, May 31, 2008

Dana and Wes made sure their wedding was a good time right from the start, arranging for transportation for all of their guests to and from the ceremony in Nyack, NY (which Wes’s family helped found in the 1600s!) Not having to drive made sure that people could get to know each other … and loosen up a bit … before the party even started. And what a party. The reception was on a yacht circling Manhattan and Liberty Island, and though it was large I’m amazed that the guests gyrations didn’t make it rock harder than it did.

You really can’t get nicer than this couple. How nice were they? They got me a wedding present!

Congratulations Dana and Wes!
