Tony + Mireille got married in Digby this time last year. It was a shoot I’ll never forget, taking photos on a rotten train bridge 100 feet over a river. Mireille was pregnant at the time. Since then they’ve had Nathan and Tony delivered his own son on the stairway in his house as they waited for the ambulance.
About 4 months ago I got an email from both of them within a few days. Tony wanted to surprise Mireille w a canvas and Mireille wanted to surprise Tony with a family shoot. I’m the worst secret keeper in the world and they dropped 2 on me.
This was one of those let’s just meet and make a plan kind of shoot. I was tryin to find the way under the bridge and kept ending up on dead end streets so we looked for the shadiest dude in the neighborhood and figured he’d know. he did.
I absolutely love shooting w these guys. I also had all kinds of pent up photography from not shooting the last week and a half…and I had all my gear back from repairs…and a spankin new 4th flash…and Jessica, of course. As we lugged gear out of the woods she said, “we should get a donkey”).
At the end of the night Mireille handed me her wedding dress and said, “Here, Trash the Dress”. I never thought I’d be the proprietor of 3 wedding dresses. That’s 2 more wedding dresses than Marcia.
So speaking of wedding dresses…
I’m currently working on a gargantuan bridal boudoir shoot with the insane and talented Jeff Cooke and Jason LeFrense near the end of August. As far as we know it’s never been done before…but we need your help. If you’re a bride and have your dress and you kind of feel like being involved in something that surely you will tell people at every wedding you ever go to from here on in…send me a message and we’ll send you the facebook group with the death defying details. There will be no dresses harmed in this project.
