Winter Wonderland!

This morning I woke up to a light dusting of snow. Yay! For some reason, I feel like my winter has seriously been lacking in the snow department. I guess North Jersey and NYC have been slightly out of range for the big snowstorms that hit the rest of the east coast this winter. A little more snow might come our way on Saturday, so I’m going to try to take advantage of it!

And that brings me to the title of this post…

A Winter Wonderland Shoot - for all of my past, present, and future brides & grooms!

When?
Saturday, February 6, 2010
2pm - 5pm

Why this Saturday?
Because snow is hard to predict and the forecast looks good for it right now!

Where?
Meet at my place in Rutherford, NJ at 2pm.
Then, we’ll carpool over to Hoboken to do the shoot in/near Frank Sinatra Park. We’ll have (hopefully) snowy park spaces, the view of NYC, and some nice wintry trees/branches to work with.

Who is invited?
Anyone who wants a super-fun, wintry photo of themselves, their friends, or their significant other. If you have a group of friends who want to join you and simply wear their favorite fabulous outfit, they are definitely invited! This doesn’t have to be all wedding dresses!

How will I stay warm?
Well, since this isn’t your real wedding day, bring along your warmest boots, coat, hat (or earmuffs that won’t mess up your hair; I won’t judge!), and mittens. I’ll attempt to get us close to a restaurant or coffee shop where we can make warm-up stops, and we’ll also have at least one car nearby to warm up in. Hot cocoa and coffee will be on hand as well!

How much?
This event is completely FREE. I simply wanted a reason to go shoot in the snow! And you’ll also get some cool swag in the form of one 8×10 (or 2 5×7s) and a web-ready disc of your images, delivered about a week after the shoot.

What about my makeup?
Wear makeup that suits you. Just a little extra mascara, blush and lipstick go a long way to making you look extra fabulous in photos. (Photography usually shows less makeup than you actually have on, so feel free to do it up a bit more than normal.)

Should I rent a tux for my man?
That’s completely up to you. Your man can dress however you choose, whether that’s his favorite suit, a vintage jacket and pants from a thrift store, or jeans and a t-shirt. I’m all for creativity here!

Want to join us?
E-mail me at sarah@sarahpostma.com to let me know you’ll be joining us! Questions? E-mail me there as well!

And to get you in the spirit of a wintry shoot, here are a few images I shot a few days ago at a get-together with a bunch of fab New York/New Jersey photographers and models.

Esther & Michael - A New York City Engagement Session

They were lucky enough to get a key to Gramercy Park. I was lucky enough to get a couple so in love, they forgot I was shooting their photos. And that’s a perfect combination.

I can’t wait for this couple’s wedding next weekend at the Gramercy Park Hotel. Here is a glimpse into their engagement session, which was by far one of the most fun of the season. Michael makes Esther laugh constantly, and he also loves to dance, which seriously made for one happy photographer.

When I told them to have a seat on this bench, this is what they did naturally. Perfect:

And then, the dancing ensued. Yes, I barely got Esther’s hand in the shot on the right, but these lovebirds were moving quickly! I didn’t know what they were going to do next! I love it:

Awesome color and an awesome couple:

There’s something I love about this photo. It’s sweet, while being a little sophisticated. I don’t know … as if I interrupted a conversation they were having and they graciously obliged to have their photo taken, knowing how fabulous they looked. I just think it’s cool:

Michael continued to lead the dancing:

And I’ll end on this one, which was yet another pose they just naturally fell into after I placed them in this spot beneath the trees:

They’re such naturals, I know they’ll also play the part of bride and groom incredibly well! See you two next weekend!
