Last week, Steve's grandmother Peggy Roberts passed away, from a short but traumatic bought with cancer. She was a gracious and proud great grandmother to 4, grandmother to 8, mother to 4, and wife to 1.
Her cancer was diagnosed after a stroke that essentially blinded her and left her dependent which was excruciating for her. Luckily from diagnosis to the end was only about 6 weeks, while it was terrible, it was short and she got to spend her sick days with friends and family around her.
She was an avid golfer in her younger days and I was told she played a round of golf about 2 months ago. She got hole in one that day, for the second time.
She lived a long and fruitful life and now she is free to find her beloved Don in the afterlife.
This was an exciting event for us. We were asked to shoot the wedding of a former advertising colleague, turned good friend. She has an eye for photography and has been "in the business" for several years. She has a sharp attention for detail and knows exactly what she wants, down to the "film" look and feel of yester year. She wanted for her black + white images to look like they were shot on Kodak T-Max 3200 for the grain, I added a little Tri-X 400 to the mix, to give it that sweet light grey half tone to make the black + white subtle and beautiful. The ceremony was held at nearly dust as were all of the formal portraits, so the ambient light is a wee bit on the bluish side so I pulled those pack around to a warmer tone, my favorite, with some yellows and contrast. Reminiscent of Kodak Portra 400VC. I think the results are outstanding. I'm really excited to show them off and most excited to unveil them to my beautiful bride. Thank you, Sheryl for trusting us with your vision.
I was married just 3 years ago in April and from that moment forward, I was taken with everything wedding. I started shooting weddings last year and I am madly in love. Steve (He - my husband) a designer by trade and myself a commercial and editorial photographer fuse a seamless union at home and at your wedding. We LOVE what we do and couldn't possibly be happier doing anything else.
Thank You for looking.
