Long Island in the summer is such a great place to be. So when my cofounders of Foster & Flourish and I were working on project ideas, we thought we’d highlight the beautiful north shore beaches of Long Island, New York. Bonnie, Jessica and I planned our first Film Photography workshop and I was hosting it! I was excited and nervous at the same time. I was nervous because I’ve been shooting weddings and lifestyle portraiture with digital cameras for most of my years in the industry; And I was excited because I’m loving every minute of the process of fine art film photography! To read the full post about my experience head on over to the Foster & Flourish blog.
Here is the backstory of this beautiful engagement session: Virginia & Johnny spent their summers at the beach, walking hand-in-hand and enjoying countless sunsets. When Virginia went to study art in Paris for six months, Johnny sent her postcards and love letters, when he wasn’t building a cabana for her. This is what happened when they met at the beach shortly after sunrise…
Special thanks to everyone who was a part of this experience and brought life to our vision.
