Dote Shopping Fall Campaign

In September i was commissioned to photograph the dote shopping app fall campaign in new york city! i absolutely love working with bloggers, and this group of 6 girls was so much fun to work with. dote picked 6 new york city-based youtubers, influencers, and bloggers to be in the images. for the photographers wondering, these images were shot on a canon 5d mark iv + sigma 35mm art lens. the locations we picked as the backdrop for the promo images were: west village, central park, and Columbus circle.

julie windy sunset portraits in seattle

so one of my good friends julie just got her hair done to be pink. she was helping me on another shoot and right after golden hour i snapped some photos of her in the parking lot because the sky matched her new hair color! you might recognize julie from when i shot her wedding or in the couple portrait photography tutorial. i am so obsessed with windy portrait sessions and really happy with how these turned out.
