Alex & Greg
Fire Island Light House - Fire Island, NY
The sunrise looked incredible beaming behind the Fire Island Light House on the morning of Alex and Greg’s engagement shoot. It was a windy day in early October and the air had just begun to take on a cool crisp feel. While the change of weather was certainty refreshing for an outdoor shoot, the wind presented, as it always does, several interesting obstacles that turned into awesome opportunities. By capitalizing on the direction of the wind and the movement of the surrounding shrubbery and sky, I was able to incorporate additional elements of drama into each shot of Alex and Greg.
The Fire Island Light House has always been one of my favorite spots to shoot. The variations in scenery, lighting and texture make it the ideal location for incorporating several different outdoor elements into your work. When photographing Alex and Greg I included each of the surrounding key features, (sand, sea, shrubbery and Light House,) to give the shoot variety while still maintaining a beachy vibe.
Alex and Greg had a fantastic engagement shoot and it was a blast working with them. Congratulations you guys!
