meggie & bernardo.

we had the absolute pleasure of being asked to travel down to naples, florida on new years eve to photograph meggie & bernardo’s wedding. we first met this family when we photographed meggie’s older sisters wedding, so it was wonderful seeing familiar faces again! everything about their big day was elegant and beautiful…and the warm florida sunshine didn’t hurt either. thank you again you guys for allowing us to be there to photograph your big day…we wish you nothing but lots of love and happiness always.

*on a little side note all of these blog images have been processed with the VSCO pre-sets…this is our first time using them, and we’re pretty stoked with the results…we love that feel of grain and film that these images have.*

without further ado, here are just a few of our favorite images from meggie & bernardo’s day.

*happy 2012!*

In a lot of ways my exploration of dance photography began three years ago with this person. It feels appropriate to conclude my recent study with her again. Mallory is a professional dancer that travels all over the world performing. Her credentials are endless, and they are only surpassed by her kindness and generosity. Based out of New York, she carved out a good portion of her Christmas vacation to spend time being photographed by me back home at Kenyon. I grew up with Mallory; as I knew her in high school, she was shy and unassuming. What she’s grown into is nothing short of incredible. She’s an explosive and expressive dancer. And, someone I am very proud to call a friend. I can’t take a lot of credit for these images. As you can see, all she really needs is a location to turn it into her own stage.

Kelsey was the very first person on board for this project. She had such enthusiasm and quiet grace. Again, even though the temperature was in the mid 30’s, she was remarkably willing to climb trees, stand is wet grass, and find her way into a window pane. I couldn’t have asked for a more diverse artist.

Alison - Wow. Robbie, you’ve done it again. Your images elicit a quiet, calm elegance that is duly magnified by the specific surroundings you chose. Have you considered a child ballerina for your next series? May not be very hardy to the 30 degree weather, but given the right model, could be very powerful.
