kim's bridal-trash the dress day

i wanted to go out and play with my camera and sunlight and flash. try some new things and relearn some old tricks. just shoot. essential work to any photographer. my dear friend kim agreed to get all fancy for me. i did her hair and make-up myself (not too shabby huh?) and we headed out on a sunny afternoon. not though without first stopping at subway since we were starving, but needed to be quick. i know, it's all there was nearby though! that stop has been quite funny to us since the shoot..."beautiful bride stops at subway for pre-wedding sandwich"...."jared has taught her to watch her figure"...ok enough.

we went to the new train station in portland, maine and then drove behind it to a bunch of buildings and the bay. there was all kinds of business' back there from a taxi cab company to the building we used as our backdrop which was 'barnstormers', where they make flooring from re-sawn vintage lumber. very cool! john, the owner, came out and chatted with us. he wondered if we were a couple of students from the maine college of art. nope just a crazy wedding photographer looking for a cool spot and some nice light. we found both.

well thanks for your patience and the laughs kim. you were great just like i knew you would be!

ps i am so excited to have figured out the way to get large photos on my blog...it only took me half a day! sigh. oh well. they look much more they way i want them to! yah for photos!

then downtown near the porthole restaurant, and the comedy connection, for the great shock of color that is on the walls outside. it's one of my favorite spots to add some color and have some fun!
