The thing about mermaids is, you never quite know when they will show up to haunt you. Our ongoing project of photographing mermaids in the wild stretches back over 2 years now and we are just now refining our process to capturing these rare and unforgiving creatures. This set of photographs captures 3 sessions from one not so warm October day in 2014. Our first set features Kari and David in either a mating dance or perhaps an underwater turf battle. After the two of them swam furiously away, we found a mermaid in bright orange and yellow mysteriously floating across the surface of the water. We could not divine her intentions, so we simply snapped a few photographs of Nicole and awed at her grace. Lastly, we found Jennifer underwater and coaxed her into letting us take a few portraits of her, much like one does as a tourists in a faraway land. After she had her fill of us, off to the school of fishes to retrieve her young.
I have had the distinct pleasure of watching Kevin grow up for his entire life. Alyssa I have known for a shorter period of time but she is no less sweet in my heart. And we had a rollicking time photographing their wedding this weekend. You might remember this couple as one of our underwater engagement sessions from this Summer. While they are laying on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean enjoying warmer waters, we are sharing a preview of their wedding photographs.
