Pete & Marnie - October 2015

My old buddy Pete, whom I've known for 20 years, finally got hitched last year! I was super excited for both him and his new wife, Marnie, but just wasn't able to make the ceremony. As promised though, and a little bit later than planned, I was happy to finally deliver my wedding gift to them of a professional engagement style photo shoot!

This old sailor buddy of mine has been through a thing or two in his life, so to see the way Marnie could put a Texas sized smile on his face just melted my heart. I've known couples that you could not even tell were married, but there was no mistaking these two. You could just feel the energy and chemistry that Pete and Marnie share, and it was a wonderful thing to witness, and be able to capture for them. 

Tools of the trade. A Canon 5D Mark II and two hot rod L primes, the 35mm f/1.4L and the 135mm f/2L. I've been singing praises of my 7D Mark II lately, but when you want really fantastic looking portraits, you need to be on full frame, and need to be shooting some really snazzy L glass. It just makes the photos come alive. :)
