When I Met You in the Summer


They say the light is everything in the Hamptons, so I say let’s put a gown and a girl in a garden and have a look. This summer Hamptons Magazine approached Kelly to style a sort of society portrait of some of the Hamptons “it” girls of summer and I was 100% on board to photograph it. The light out there is misty, in such a way that it dances with silver shiny felts of stardust. It makes everyone look ripe, the most beautiful versions of themselves. For this sitting, “When I Met You in the Summer“, I just leaned on what the Hamptons gives you so much of – beautiful nature, beautiful women, and above all…. beautiful light.

Below are a few behind the scenes from the shoot! An instagram of my gear {digital for them / film for me} and an action shot shooting the Dannijo sisters in Donna Karan & Gucci coats and making them glow with the help of a Scrim Jim. ALSO, I’m totally into wearing men’s chinos from Banana Republic on shoot days & my fav tennies.
