“I am the one thing in life. I can control. I am inimitable. I am an original”-Aaron Burr
I’ll admit it, I have only heard of Hamilton the musical but I’ve never seen it. I went into this shoot knowing nothing and left knowing SO much more. Meredith with Auburn & Ivory exceeded any expectation I had of this shoot, it was just incredible to work with her and the vendors she selected for this photoshoot. The details were so intentional and reflected everything Hamilton. We’re so excited to see this on Grey Likes Weddings!
From a photography standpoint, this was also a very challenging photo-shoot. We were shooting in an old farmhouse with very little light and my monopod went missing from my trunk of my car so thankgoodness Katie’s husband (old slate farm) went to fetch me one from a friend. I loved challenging myself to get the shot under these conditions. I played with the light on the porch and let the sun bounce around on my details, it gives it a more real look rather then flat light. I felt like the shadows gave it a mood that we were going for. Meredith told me more about Hamilton as the shoot went on and I felt like we captured the confidence, that bit of arrogance and mood from this era in the photos.
This photo. I am pretty sure the moment I took the photo I could see it in my mind. The confidence that draws you in was smoldering.
