SAGE Vintage Wedding – Albuquerque Journal Styled Shoot

The Albuquerque Journal’s final edition (yes, final) of Sage magazine happened to be the annual wedding (celebrations) issue. Every year, we shoot a stylized wedding session for the main story of the wedding edition. And every year, the shoot day ends up being one of the coldest days in December. This time was no different. The models were troopers dealing with the cold. That fur stole she’s wearing in a few frames I brought from my personal vintage collection at the last minute because the temperature was dropping as the day progressed. I knew the inspiration was a vintage wedding so it worked and kept her warm, a win win. I’ve shot three of these wedding sessions over my years here at the paper and always loved working on them.

Antiques Roadshow – Albuquerque Journal

Antiques Roadshow. Who doesn’t love it? Okay, maybe the vintage geek in me loves it more than some people. I can remember watching it as a child and marveling at all the things people found in their closets, at a yard sale, or items their great grandparents had left them. Now with my personal foray into the world of vintage clothing, I was geeking out pretty badly when I got the chance to shoot it for the paper. Here are some of the sights from that day.

After the appraisal, Lowry had an impromptu photo session of himself with the posters, including a few selfies. (Morgan Petroski/Journal)
