I don't typically pose people in front of brick walls, along railroad tracks, in matching clothing... heck, I typically don't even pose people. I like making images with them that are different, meaningful to them and to the heck with other photographers or critics who don't like it... It doesn't matter if they don't like. The only people I care about are the clients I work with, and make something they like.
This setting was out of my norm, but it works for them. They're working hard and building a life in the building behind them, and it is an awesome window. It was a great evening, and it was also their 30th wedding anniversary – it also happened to be pretty darn cold to be wearing light clothing.
Thanks for having me out to make images with you.
