Not Freudian At All

Sometimes a train is just a train.  ;-)  I love their pose, their expresions, the way he's holding her, the chains that seem to be wrapped around them and the way the metal grate makes her look like she's wearing fishnet stockings.  

I recently had the fun opportunity to photograph my friends Jake and Ashli.  They're getting married next month and I wish the the best in their lives together.  They wanted to do a 60s era spy themed shoot at the Austin Steam Train Association.  Jake booked for us to have access to the facitilty during off hours so we could have the run of the place to set up shots and not be in the way or be in others' way.  We worked really fast and did about a half dozen different sets on about two hours time.  I could not have worked that fast without the outstanding assistance and input of fellow photographers Steve Wampler and Mike Connell--thank you guys!  

I knew when I got to the location that this was a shot I was going to have to make.  It was taken near the end of the shoot.  The sun is setting behind me as you can tell by the glow in the train's windshields.  I stood between the rails (like you're not supposed to) to get the shot.  Steve held up an Alien Bee strobe with battery pack in a "softbox umbrella" on the end of a boom way up over his head camera right. The rig was triggered remotely via PocketWizards.

Laura and Bob

Right after she got engaged, my friend Laura asked me if I would take a photo for their “save the date” cards.
We shot this in the shadow of the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue at Auditorium Shores by Ladybird Lake (aka Town Lake) near downtown Austin, Texas at sunrise.
Storbist info: SB-600 in TTL mode, camera left, bounced into a foam core card.
Congratulations to Laura and Bob.

Some friends at a recent birthday celebration out by Lake Travis for my wife, her twin and our nephew. The food was so good that he was licking her fingers. I really liked their interaction at this moment.
