Rachel K. Ivey Photography – Engagement Session – Eric and Liz

I recently had the opportunity to spend the day with Eric and Liz for their engagement portrait session.  They are a hip, young couple who were interested in incorporating architectural, graffiti, and other urban elements and processing techniques in their images.

Rachel K. Ivey Photography – Glastonbury Cross

Since this is Easter weekend, I have found myself thinking about a trip I made to England in 2008. Glastonbury was at the top of my list of places to visit. My husband and I were able to make a day trip to Glastonbury from our bed and breakfast, Appletree Guest House, in Bath. Glastonbury
