Sorority Formal On The Capitol Grounds

Last weekend my son's sweetheart of a girlfriend had a formal mixer for her sorority. He manages to avoid having himself photographed as often as possible. She, however, asked me to do some photos of them dressed for the event. I took advantage of that by meeting them downtown on the state capitol grounds for some afternoon portraits.

There are many ancient live oak trees on the grounds that have protected the greenery beneath from frost. This has preserved the greenery that provides such a nice backdrop for outdoor portrait photography.

I am very excited about the possibility of using this brick wall for senior portraits. It serves as an excellent background that doesn't distract from our all important subjects.

It was a beautiful afternoon, and many other photographers were on the grounds posing their clients while we did our own thing. Here is a sampling of the other shots we were able to capture that afternoon.
